When you look back at your time sheet and see a 40 hour week and wonder "what was that week" to open it and realize that was the week you took PTO for the flu. 65 hour weeks 😭

At Accenture we only submit and bill 40 no matter how many we work. It's a joke.

120 hours a week doesn't mean you work for a real firm, it means you're likely working inefficiently.

Also against policy at Deloitte to not bill the hours you work and work the hours you bill. Still, in general you bill 45 per week. Regardless of hours worked.

I easily work 60 hours a week and can only charge 40. It's just the norm unfortunately

Really? Interesting. It's against our policy to not report all hours worked.

65??? Try 120

65 client chargeable hours not including travel hours ect

It is absolutely against Accenture policy to not record hours worked, but with Sandeep in India looking to steal my job, it's just how it is.

You bill 40 at Accenture but PTO doesn't hurt your utilization. You typically bill 45 at Deloitte but taking PTO hurts your utilization. It's all relative.

And the whole bill what you work, work what you bill it complete BS. It is never the reality. More like bill what you're budgeted on this project for and you betcha it's not more than 45 😒
