ZS should just get done with the CO(layoffs) in a single phase like other companies instead of stretching it for weeks and months.

It is creating a lot of anxiety and stress for the employees and the lack of transparency on the basis for CO is definitely not helping

we thought it was performance based and mostly for new hires but with recently promoted people and people with good reviews getting fired that doesn't seem to be the case

Any rationale behind ZS stretching it for so long?

ZS is always notorious for being least transparent about comp and firing people. Its like their leadership act like kids when it comes to these things and has no clue what other firms in the world are doing. Same thing happened with post covid RTO comms - too much panick and one sided mindset.


Yes, exactly!
The ZS values of doing the right thing and treating people right don't seem to apply to ZS leadership


Double digit bonus people got cod too


Time for new values!


Bcoz ZS leadership wants to be in good book. If they CO(read fire) large number of folks at one go, it will tarnish the image of the firm in the market.. so they have devised an idea to CO people slowly slowly. Started in last November and continuing...


I don't think they are fooling anyone by doing this, news will eventually spread and if anything i think this is worse because the people getting CO'd will spread negative stuff about ZS. And all this anxiety and stress is making the employees hate the leadership and ZS as a company

Have you seen any good reviews people getting fired first hand?

People are getting CO'D left right and center. So many of contractors are out.

Are you even working in ZS?

She wants to help me make things work but idk how to even determine what needs to change.

Hi all,
Hope you are doing well.

I have joined Accenture as fresher at Level 11 in August 2021.
After 2-3 months I finally got a project in AWS IoT Domain.
So I am currently working in AWS serverless project where I made some AWS Architectures and implemented the entire flow using Python. I have also done AWS Developer Associate Certification.

It's been a year now. Still I feel like I have not learnt much. Can someone suggest how should I upskill myself?


Hi fishes,
I just browsed through this bowl and it seems I've replied to the HR's mail with an expected CTC way lower than the market trend.
YOE - 9.1
Stack - IT/Network
Current - 7.5LPA
Expected - 18LPA (mentioned this in my reply to their mail along with all the docs).
Should I've asked for more? Or will my current CTC hold me back? Should I drop another mail?
Which designation should I go for? I can see guys getting AVP at this xp but I'm looking for B3 for ease of getting the next promotion.
