Accenture Paid Overtime
I was recently offered a position in Accenture with an annual salary. However, they are also giving me overtime pay. Does this really depend on the manager or do they not allow you to work 40 + hours so you essentially don't get OT pay. I heard that you don't get OT pay because the manager won't let you put more than 8 hours a day due to consulting contracts.
Accenture Overtime Policies
In an industry like finance where people generally work more than 40 hour weeks, it’s no surprise to have questions when offered overtime at an internship.
User @SofaKingMetal who interned for Accenture last summer shares the following:
You either won't get more than 40 hours of work a week or will be expected to work past the 40 hours without reporting it. Interned in their NY office this summer.
While it is your right to report overtime hours and legally, you’re supposed to be paid it, keep in mind that you so at the risk of your job. You will find that while there are overtime policies in place, most firms are not known for happily paying these extra hours. It’s kind of an unwritten rule that you just do the time without complaint or expectation.
User @TheSourPatchKid explains it like this:
And prepare to get screwed by that manager during your performance evaluations for "not being a good fit". Don't be the douche that demands to go against the status quo just to make some extra money in the short term. It's your first year, it'll be a rounding error in the long run.
