just asking

We have had several people in MCIM let go over the last few weeks. Is this going on elsewhere in Accenture?

Any idea if those guys received a respectable package? Do any of them know what they're going to do next?

Walt's Whispers to Strategy McCMER (#6)

i've heard major culls planned in the weaker parts of MCIM & Strategy, i.e. resources /FS practices. Last time Consultant thru Sn Manager took the biggest hits. Anyone else heard any rumours?

Some C1 experience hire HP guy on my project was "let go" with 6 months paid garden leave and 2 months salary one-off payment after about a year in ACN. Could have been because he was a real w**ker though.

JohnSmith to anon (#9)

Maybe Accenture is a sinking ship.

Accenture's margins compare poorly with industry averages (2002-2006) + the weak performance in the Europe, the Middle East, Europe and Africa (EMEA), etc.

World, Hold On! to JohnSmith (#10)

In MC I haven't heard much about people being let go but there seems to be a fairly significant number of experienced hires joining. The two don't tally well. Perhaps they are getting rid of the lower performers, perhaps they want to reduce headcount and that just hasn't filtered through to recruiting yet, perhaps they've realised taking on lots of people all the time means the bar drops and they're sacking more as a counter balance? Some of the 'Experienced Hire Inductions' earlier this year had 70+ people, and those happen every couple of weeks it seems, although it's probably about 1/3 to 1/2 that are consulting.

#12 Quite normal

bob bob to World, Hold On! (#11)

Its quite normal "counselling out" of lowest ~10%. Used to be much more common but due to attrition and enormous demand in last few years they haven't really done much of it.

Now we're back to the good old days when we can actually get rid of the chaff.

Sinking ship my a$$.
