Anyway in ACN, it doesn't matter what is your title, what role you were hired for. It's all a beautiful painting that the management painted for you only. You will be assigned to work that they need ppl on - obviously won't be an fag and assign you technical role when you're non-tech.

So really, once you worked on those crappy stuff for a few weeks, start sounding out and get them to fulfill their promises. If they can't, please, make decisions for the better of your career.

It's on you.
Testing and training counted as ad-hoc work meh? I always see the consulting analyst doing training? Testing all the projects I have been in also got testing involved and it’s quite common I thought.

Chargeable hours are hours that you spend working for a client. As long as you're assigned to a project, you will have a charge code to use in your time sheet, and those are chargeable hours. OT really depends. Are you doing OT to hit deadline, or OT because you're part of a CR that can only be done on weekends? Generally, OT is quite hard to claim

Everyone does training. Doesn't matter what you're doing. There's always going to be some random training every now and then

Yes it's very normal. Many analysts get arrowed to do ad hoc work like prepare deck for presentation, networking calls or other random shyt. This is because the damn company keeps hiring without actually checking to see what roles are needed on projects.

I think many people don't seem to understand how Accenture works. This is not some regular company where you get hired to do 1 thing and then continue to do it for the rest of your tenure. Rather, you will be deployed to wherever leadership wants you to be deployed. You can say no of course, but consider yourself blackballed if you do that.

If you talk to the Accenture lifers, you will begin to understand what kind of people a lot of them are. Just people who are too scared to leave and lie to themselves that Accenture is a good company

If testing is part of the job but not like 100% of it should be normal? Like BA we also have testing stages for SIT and UAT, but at the same time we also have documentations and kissing etc. so this kind should be normal bah. Op also mentioned the project going live soon right so maybe that’s one of the reason, cos pretty much nothing left in the project so prolly the testing stages. 🤔

Wow nice, what did you do for your first project role? And wonder if you have worked with any ‘strategy and consulting analysts’ in your projects past and present? What do their tasks involve ah, is it mainly documentation, slides, and trainings? Heard trainings was like a common thing on the consulting side leh

Will all employees in the company know who is on the bench? Or is there a indicator somewhere if there’s no one on the bench?

You can go from Accenture to FAANG, don't know anyone personally who did it but I've seen a few on LinkedIn.

But just know that there's plenty of companies that pay more than FAANG with better / similar WLB. If you're going for FAANG, go for the branding for your resume or because you believe in their company / products & services.

Anyway Accenture is great, few days ago I read deeper into it (mostly the US side) and its quite common for people to go in 1-3 years, learn fast, acquire skills and hop to bigger companies.

Pay seems to be pretty good too, zero_88 is making great money for his/her tenure and decent WLB. ( Correct me if I'm wrong zero_88 )
I know of 3 others who went from ACN to FAANG. I'm joining FAANG from ACN in July.

Are you not in the company yet? Contractors' title would be contractor. You will not be able to tell their Level thats all.
