Accenture - expected start time for London offices

 
#1 Accenture - expected start time for London offices
19/07/2007 11:09

Mr Commute

Trying to work out the practicalities of commuting to Accenture London offices. A primary constraint appears to be arrival time in the morning. What's the latest you can arrive in the office without the smart ar$e "Good afternoon" comments or worse still being taken to one side for a bit of advice.

depends who you're working with. Some people/projects/managers start late and work late and finish late, others (like my last manager) come in at 7 and leave early.

I'd say 9.30 would be the latest, most people are 8-9am coming in though.

find that tends not to be a problem either way, as long as you are doing the hours. Problem is more finding somewhere to sit if you get there after 9. And to get a seat on a Friday, need to be there around 8.30

Thanks for the comments.

No contract yet, still at the early interview stage. I didn't want to find out down the road that getting in at 8:30 would get me noticed for all the wrong reasons.

On a related point - how well is home-working viewed? Say for 1 or maybe 2 days a week. Clearly only when direct contact with the team isn't needed.

Again, very project specific.

Often the overseas/out of town projects are ok with you working from home on a Fri as they tend to be mon-thur out of town fri office or work from home.

Would normally be a friday if you get to work from home. Most work is client site based during the week, hence the small capacity of the offices given the number of employees!

#7 London based clients => no hotel

Mr Commute to anon (#6)

And presumably if the client is London based there is no way that over-nighting in a hotel would be considered.

Worst case scenario that I see is to be on site at a London based client and funding commuting costs for the whole week.

Better case being out of town (hotel) client Mon-Thu with Fri home-working

Best case being home town client Mon-Thu with Fri home-working

And I haven't even got an offer yet !

I was with Accenture for 3 years and visited my office on Old Bailey less than 10 times.

You'll be wherever the client is.
