Accenture Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at Accenture

Honest management

It s—s that there is so little information available on what's going with the company right now and what are the plans for the future. Personally, I'd rather have transparent management who were honest with us even if that meant knowing I'm slated... —  read more 

Layoff & Share Buybacks

Accenture: The consulting firm said in late August it would lay off about 25,000 global employees, or about 5% of its total workforce. On Thursday, it announced it would expand its share buyback program by an additional $5 billion, bringing its total... —  read more 

It's definitely not over

I know of at least two people that were hit today. The weird thing was not even their CC nor their Practice manager was aware of who was targeted. Also the performance claim is complete BS. One of the people I know of was a top performer, 100%... —  read more 

Lost a great manager

I was working with a L6 - They were working on a CIO internal project full time and also providing sales support for billable projects. They initially got a good review but was still found to be a candidate for layoff. Their last day was 8/31/20.

It's coming and it'll be big

At least here in the NA. We'll see how things will pan out, but I'd say it'll be brutal. Consulting pipelines are looking healthier but we are still too heavy for the current demand - we need to get smaller. They waited initially as nobody knew where... —  read more 

Is anybody safe here?

Is there such a thing as a safe position at Accenture right now? The layoffs in the past several months made very little sense to me considering the people who were let go. It was all over the place - from people with high pay and most experience to... —  read more 

Delay the start date?

My start date was initially set to be in September 2020 but has since been pushed back until January 2021. My role is in Security in a large metro... My school is offering a program to get a masters of science in engineering in 2 semesters... —  read more 

3Q P&L Pumping

That's the goal (the only goal) of these layoffs. Numbers up, exec bonuses up. End of story. There had a several other approaches if they wanted not to do layoffs. OK, it's just business - but Julie & Co. please do not be so obviously deceiving and... —  read more 

It's True

You are just a number to Accenture, no matter how much support you have from projects as well as good reviews. Their agenda now is to promote minorities so others they need money.

My layoff experience

Typing this on phone, there will be typos. I was laid off in 2009, and being axed s—s. It s—s big time. I was a consultant in C&HT at the time, based out of the NYC office. It was difficult to find any projects, I ended up sitting on the bench... —  read more 

Vac move

I am bummed that I was forced to take a vacation, THEN they nerf me, effectively taking my money out of my pocket. No transparency there.

It made no sense...

Been with company about 9 months, got lay-off notice last Friday due to ‘low utilization’. However, was on large major client. Did not may sense. No recourse to dispute as I was told decision final. Had not been with company long enough to even... —  read more 

Layoff Algorithm???

I was notified yesterday. I was suggested for promotion mid-year and expected it in August. 100% recoverable very busy. Was told the algorithm looked at role and impact for decision. Well, sh–. Would like to know all the aspects of “the algorithm” in... —  read more
