Accenture india operations severe budget cuts . Promotion stops. Bad vibes. Any news what is happening
I have my eye on an internal vacancy advertised on w3. It seems like an excellent fit but at the bottom it says something like "due to blah blah we can only hire from the Cloud (nee middleware) division. Now, I'm actually attached to Tivoli which... read more
I was working on proposals for six months, was told I was needed on the proposals and NOT to look for chargeable work, and then I was suddenly told I wasn't chargeable enough and got let go. So do not believe them when they say you should just sit on... read more
Seriously, I am on a project and we are having major budget issues - my manager mentioned that I should consider taking PTO to help with the budget. I've been accumulating PTO as I am planning a family thing and I do not want to do this - but she is... read more
Layoff's happening if you're on the bench for how long? I am seriously worried now, i have been on the bench since Jan but working on proposals and packages consistently - just not on projects.
Experienced hires are always at risk of layoffs at Accenture because they are not as well networked, get unknowingly taken advantage of by the old guard culture as there are so many things they don't know: Tricks to survive, Crony networks that can... read more
my husband got the notice today that he's being laid off. 2 weeks notice. they told him "we over-hired last year". what about my family? we have a child and i make pennies a year at a nonprofit. this is terrible. i feel so despondent.
An interesting read: Since I left Accenture, I have thought a lot about how the operating model has changed the firm. Its hard to argue with success as Accenture weathered the financial crisis well and the stock is hitting new all-time highs. Yet, my... read more
Think quite a few will be joining me. The bench is massive. I was only put on two projects the entire time I was there. Spent more time on bench then on projects. It's a shame.
I know some who got two weeks notice today.

What are the updates, are we still cutting jobs in India?
I just had lunch with an MD and they said that if you're unstaffed, you're in serious danger of being laid off.
Accenture is laying off, without any news in media, demand is slow. I know someone got laid off with 2 weeks notice.
Digital will bring in about 10 billion dollars in revenue. We have no competition there, we make the market. So much for Accenture layoffs.
I've been thinking of leaving Accenture for what I perceive as greener pastures. Green being a better work life balance and back doing some kind of development work. To explain the situation: I've been on my project with various companies over the... read more

Many of us will be moved to CD&O: I'm worried my neck is on the chopping block as well. This is just what is going around in the rumor mill, that many of us will be moved to CD&O, no arguing your way out of it. The logic behind it is to move everyone... read more
