We have confirmed layoffs today. Cut would finish by the end of the day.
1 week of severance for every full year of service for L8 and below.
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

Accenture started COVID-related layoffs today. Details are still unclear but ~10% of U.S workforce is the internal target being thrown around. Cyber practices heavily impacted.
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).
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.
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

The names on the lists may have been reviewed by a human but systems and formulas were the origination. Does anyone have the global count or percentage?
I’ve heard that many consluting companies are planning to adjust new-hires’ salary levels, any idea by how much? Do we have anyone on this board who was with the company back in 2001 or 2008 - what happened then?
I was a high performer in my first three years at ACN and built a great reputation. Early last year, an old SM I enjoyed working with begged me to come help him turn a failing project around. Silly me, I agreed. I get on the ground, and sh– is a... — read more
