I spend my days without showering, just eating junk food and watching puppy videos. What the bench has done to me..
TFW you're on the bench for weeks, getting multiple calls per week from outside recruiters, but your own firm has nothing for you to do 🤔
Need advice for resigning while on bench. I already have a start date with the new employer. Should I do a traditional two week notice or give <=1 week notice instead? My goal is to not burn bridges, but I also don’t want to get let go on the spot since I have nothing to “wrap up” besides HR tasks. I’ve read on here that sometimes they will let you go day of and pay you out for two weeks but I don’t see why any firm would do that for somebody not currently performing billable work...
Up at 4am due to anxiety from being on the bench for 2 months. Questioning what’s wrong with me and why I’m having such a difficult time getting staffed in comparison to my peers.
What’s the difference in severity between messing up enough to get rolled off a project and enough to be put on a performance improvement plan?
Been on the bench for a week. Fml. Advice?
One of the best thing of the job is you won't be stuck with the same people. I'm so glad I'll roll off soon and it's been so frustrating to deal with some ppl on my team.
I'm a Sr analyst 85 chargeabily now, starting to get scared, been on the bench for a week and seems so dry, I'm in digital delivery..wanna work instead of being on bench..
Been on the bench for 2 weeks. Internal strategy role for a year was offered to me. Should I take it?
As a new joiner to the firm, how many weeks of bench time are considered ok ? And when should I start looking outside ?
How long is it acceptable to be on the bench at Accenture? Aka when will your resource manager start harassing you?
When you match with someone really attractive on tinder on the day you roll off.....#thestruggle
Totally used to long days, but back-to-back 12-14 hours RIGHT after 2 weeks of bench is killer.
Does anyone know work culture /career progression/ compensation at AT&T Internal audit department ?

I work as a manager at a Big 4. On the strategy side, such as Monitor , strategy& , Parthenon etc. I have 6 yrs work experience I have a low undergrad GPA 2.7 and a high master GPA 4.0.

Can anyone speak to their experiences at Feinberg Hanson? Culture, satisfaction with the work, work-life balance, etc?
Do you think your peers bill their time accurately? I’ve been using the timer on my time management website and trying to keep myself honest for my Instagram breaks, but my mentor (I’m a first year) said he just estimates time based on how many hours he worked that day. Our NYC V-5 firm always does block billing so it’s incredibly easy to say “8 hours on matter X”. Anyway, especially with work from home increasing distractions, do you keep yourself honest with billing?
Better to be a big fish in a small pond or a little fish in a big pond for MBA apps (I.e. superstar at B4 or mediocre/below average at MBB; metaphorically speaking ofc, ik the B4 is technically bigger in terms of size but you understand the point in terms of competitiveness)?
Going to hit 85 segments with air Canada ... will they allow a step up by paying? Worth it?
What is it like being a partner ? What kind of life do you guys have ? Skill sets that can bring you to the top and things which can break your career ? I am currently a senior and wonder is it worth the grind ? At BIG 3 people become partners in like 10 years or so but big 4 it’s more like 15-17. Would it be worth hustling for it grinding 13 hours days consistently for years to become a partner at like 40-42? PwC Deloitte EY Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company

Are medical assistants allowed to give medication injections in your clinics? Are your nursing visits billable?
We started state testing today with my kiddos taking their FSA Writing. It is the first time I have seen them in school as they are a digital class, and such an amazing experience to see them together as they talked amongst themselves before we went to the classroom to test. You can see how much they miss being together. ❤
Anyone leave before their bonus (before knowing what the amount was) and then regret it when it turned out to be a huge bonus? Got a great offer that I want to take but feeling FOMO by leaving the bonus on the table. And yes, I tried moving the start date and asking them to cover the lost bonus but they said no and it’s still a better offer and it would be irresponsible not to take it.
Lol’d at this one 😄
I just realized I have no one. Happy Sunday!
I currently don't live in the US and forgot my bank account open (Bofa) and they charged me monthly maintenance fee. What would happen if I never pay? Or is there a trick to avoid/ waive it without depositing money? (I'm planning on moving back there one day or visit with B1/2) Thanks for your input in advance😊
