I dunno about this new rebranding thing "Let There Be Change" but I am split of the reality and the future of the situation Accenture is in to now. I am for optimistic developments but on the other side.. there are people that were unsure of their... — read more
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
Interested to hear of anyone considering or already taken legal action, or are aware of any filings. Particularly from suspected or confirmed COVID-19 cases who were subsequently laid off.

This company is nothing but a source of stress for me lately. And I'm not even talking about constant layoffs! It's the overall work atmosphere, it's the toxic culture, the horrible, incompetent managers who like to take all the credit for what works... — read more
What an insensitive comment to share to HR professionals. HR at Accenture is a joke and very disorganized and one hand doesn’t speak to the other in unison. Either way, they had to clear out the “low performers” that they force-ranked based on who... — read more
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

There is really not much info on last week's layoffs so I'm worried that was just a start and we might be looking at much more this week. Does anybody know more on either what happened last week or what we might expect to see in the next few... — read more
Yesterday a whole team (~126 people) were invited to a call where they were told that they were going to let them go between now and march...massive lay off in a single call
No warning, Performance reviews always good, including this one. People come to me for answers and how to do things and all of a sudden 2 days ago I was told I was laid off. The reason Manager said Covid and was not in the loop. HR said poor... — read more

10000 staff removed in India businesstoday.in/sectors/jobs/employee-union-files-complaint-against-accenture-for-forcefully-asking-staff-to-resign/story/414449.html
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
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.
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
Accenture Layoffs Target Up To 25,000 Low Performers: Report ‘As I’ve said before, we’ve identified some real areas of efficiencies and so that has obviously headcount implications to it, which may be what you’re calling layoffs,’ CEO Julie Sweet... — read more
Has anyone heard that layoffs have started in India? I think some of the internal people just disappeared with no warning. Wonder what scale that is.
Why was Accenture name removed from the list on the main page?
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

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
Just think about it - where can we apply for a new job when everybody is laying off right now? Nobody is hiring and will not be for who knows how long. What does that leave us with? How long before the severance money runs out? I know people... — read more
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.
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
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.
For new folks here, there is an "ACTIVE" button right above the first thread - you can use it to see what posts had recent replies. That's all from me. Anyhow, I hope this helps someone. Good luck all...
Did anyone's joining date for a consultant position got postponed/cancelled due to covid-19? What's on your mind? What are your plans (this may take a while).
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
I am hearing that we are 100% done with layoffs and barring major problems with the economy bouncing back there should be no additional cuts this year. Also, I am hearing that there is a very large P&L shuffle in the works, they will be moving cheese... — read more
1 week of severance for every full year of service for L8 and below.
I wish ACN’s senior leadership did a better job at communicating internally on such issues and not just externally on news channels etc. Here are things to consider going forward: Be honest and transparent to employees on which groups have... — read more
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
