Whatever happened to Aces?

Whatever happened

There was a time not so long ago when the legendary Aces was soon to be joining accenture.

So whatever happened to Aces?

Accenture superstar?

Or another CW?

Aces to Whatever happened (#1)

Hey hey hey - Im doing great and still around. Dont really bother putting anything on the forum other than the odd advice to a really sane question.

I realized early on why this forum exists and it's even more true now after quite some months at ACN - the bulk of the characters here only crib and make fun, the ones who are doing well just dont waste time coming to this forum :-)

As for me, I'm in office 4 days a week working 0830 to 1745 only (except one day I had to stay back till 1900) and have an excellent team working for me who respect others and know how to have fun as well - so much for all the negative comments on here.

Is it worth my time---NAAAH!!!!

Happy to Aces (#3)

Although it is interesting, and not a little bit ironic, to note how quickly you responded with a negative comment of your own.

Don't worry though - just cribbing and making fun of you. Not worth your time to respond...

depressed to Aces (#3)

Wow - I have to say that I'm really disappointed! I remember reading a few of the posts from Aces and he sounded:

a) really confident (ok - perhaps even over-confident)

b) a real go-getter

Now he's clearly settled into a 9 to 5 routine.

If people like him have taken up the pipe and slippers, what hope the rest of us??

Sad days, man. Aces? More like three high and bluffin (and I fell for it)

Aces to depressed (#5)

a little off the ball, depressed?

Not sure why you get the idea working 9-5 and settling in means loss of drive and confidence?

Luckily for me, its the opposite - confident enough to do the work without staring at the laptop for 10 hours or more everyday.

I still stand by what I said a few months ago - ACN is good and one needs to be smart to know how to play the game to be ahead in this field. Sounding calm/dead/lethargic on a forum filled with miserable whiners as this sure makes me sound like one as well :-)

It's Friday finally but WFH means I can start the Scotch a few hours earlier! Hope you all have a good one...time to log off!

depressed to Aces (#6)

Hi Aces, genuinely glad to hear from you. You're right that there are so many moaners on this site. And I also think ACn is a good place (hey, its my place)

Listen, don't take this the wrong way but I had you pegged for a real fast progressor. How do you do that without working above and beyond the basic job?

I'm not a fool. I know working long hours is not going to bring success on its own, but WFH on Fridays, drinks in the afternoon (its 4.30pm!) and doing 9-6 is what I see every day (well not the scotch!) from established M3/SM's that have decided not to go any further.

What am I missing?

Aces to depressed (#7)

Its not all that rosy!!! I travel almost 3hrs for work but actually work in office no longer than 1800

When I got the offer, if you remember, I haggled and got a revised offer at Manager level - and now, Im not that greedy. Life's not just about thinking of the next promotion right? Settle into work, excel at client projects (if clients are happy then ACN's happy), get to know the ACN style and when ready at the right opportunity make your move.

ACN gave me a good deal and promotions will come in time - in that interval work well and enjoy - helps you keep a perspective on what's important in life and keeps a smile on your face :-)

PS : I said I can have the Scotch earlier which meant a round 7pm - there's no way a true Scotch lover will appreciate a drink at 4pm!!!

Aces to Whyte & MacKay (#10)

Recent favorite is the 12yr old doublewood Balvenie....wonderful packing, amazing glass bottle and immaculate taste...started with the 15yr old Glenfiddich a few years back...much better than the 18yr old one....

BTW....its always varieties of Grant's when its the month end...I need to cut down then after 1 bottle every Friday night along with the missus.....not economical!!!

Wowser to Aces (#13)

Wow, Aces, I always had you down as a wet-behind the ears, two-years out of uni, looking-forward-to-the-touch-of-a-woman type. You know, kind of person who can imagine the answer to anything based on a tutorial in the first year.

But what a revelation! You’re married and spend your Friday evenings at home with a bottle of malt. Now I have a mental picture of a middle-aged chap with slippers, just made Accenture manager after 10 years as an analyst at a client.

Can you settle a bet – which one is it?

It's a real shame you won't be posting here any more. Painful to think that this will be the last word on the issue - here for all eternity.

Woooo, welcome back to the real Aces. That’s what we want! Testosterone fuelled, rocket speed career progression with a hint of “and if you’re lucky I’ll shag you in the tea break”.

No offence mate, but you’re no where near as inspirational when you’re in measured, "I’m in no hurry to progress" mode. Some folks are just made for speed.

So – what you reading during your commute? I can never work out if I should be boning up on directly work related stuff, or the classics that will make me a more educated, rounded person.

You a Proust/Jane Austen/Camus chap? Or is it Advanced SQL Theory?

Just wonderful, really, truly wonderful - like so many long gone posters have stated - why cant we have our IDs protected? The forum can still remain anonymous and still not allow imposters to post on your behalf....

Anyway, no point adding to the thread....wanted to just highlight that I havent posted anything since the weekend so I hope the losers who love posting in my name have a fun time and a moment's escape from their miserable tired lives :-)

Adiós

Aces is unique to Aces (#24)

Yeah yeah - with the help of google-translate we can all pretend to be Aces from a diferent country. Quite amusing.

But until Google can turn "English" into "speaking out of your ar$e" no one can replace the one and only true Aces
