@3pcjw I've spent 11 years at SI&T in Australia. It's always been like you are describing it.

Australia - Digital and Technology are not doing well. They're cutting good people and promoting the unworthy ones. A few high performing people were asked to leave and the reasoning behind it was complete bullc-ap. Apart from layoffs, lots have been leaving.

2019 will be a major shift for Accenture and they will be consolidating as the industry becomes more competitive. I recommend looking for a new job before they begin layoffs or paycuts

Accenture looking to consolidate and pare creative groups in 2019. Chicago offices will be effected. Fjord, Wirestone, etc. will all have positions cut.

Accenture rule #1 - stay chargeable. You'll be fine.

A recession will really hurt Accenture and hit them hard. Will result in thousands of consultants laid off.

Stay on a project!!!! Management is looking at the bench for its first wave of layoffs. Will cut deeper if needed.

I am in SF and all is fine here, no issues and there is literally nobody on the bench right now. I am a transfer from the Chicago office and I have many friends over there - everyone is staffed and there are no issues as well. On the other hand, if a recession hits in 2019 (as many are predicting) consulting work will dry up - it always does. They will cut low performers first and wait for the economy to take a turn - if things do not improve quickly, Accenture will do what Accenture always does - cut people on the bench... That's my two cents - keep in mind that there is a widespread agreement among the forecasters that there is less than 15% likelihood that a recession will hit in 2019. Anyhow, as the poster below noted, each geography is different so what we see here in the States may be very different if compared what's happening in Poland or Japan. Stay on a project, you'll be fine...

This site and discussions would be more useful if there was a sort mechanism by global news vs by region - e.g. India, vs. US, Europe, LatAm, AAPAC, etc.

We always have layoffs but they are measured and strategic - pinpointed towards areas that are lacking growth or losing money.

We do have bigger layoffs during recessions.
