Our sales have been pretty solid this year. But there is an unusual lag in sales turning into projects, therefore our bench is considerably heavier than past years.

Even in that case, the pipeline looks pretty weak for upcoming projects so this situation is gonna last. I'm thinking there might be layoffs because 2/3 of the analysts are unstaffed right now

Accenture Strategy has basically no projects available on myScheduling. It's all about networking and working on proposals to get projects.

Deloitte Advisory has the added benefit of being able to join projects from other groups very very easily. Anyone who is on the bench is being picky (which is okay, if you don't want to work on something random or boring)

No bench here it sucks so much - can't imagine how annoying it must be for managers

2nd the no bench at Bain...they won't even let me go on the beach. Has to be a 1 for 1 trade onto another case

I’m not sure if it’s the gender or age that I don’t fit into here (or something else), but I constantly feel left out. Basically never get a chance to share my opinions because these men overpower the discussion. I’m more so concerned about the impression it creates that I have nothing to contribute. Anyone dealt with this?
