@ACN3 - hearing about 1.5 months lately. They are being quite tight right now


2.5 months here. Damn.


How long does it take to get canned?


1.5 months is right

Doesn't it depend by group - I hear strategy has a huge bench with people easily on it for 2-4 months

Usually it does but I am seeing both Client and Market as well as Client Delivery and Operations shelf life on the bench to be about 1.5 months. Of course there are always exceptions but right now they are being strict.

I believe it matters by talent segment first and then career track

HR starts freaking out after 1.5 months and really get on your case. It's awkward when you tell them that you've applied to 10+ roles and no one responds to you

2 months and counting here, haven't heard a word from anyone about it being an issue. I think it depends a lot on talent, role, group, etc

^ the hybris bench in particular is incredibly deep right now

3 months last year and I still got rated at SA

After many months of things being so busy, I’ve been having a very quiet week. I’m taking advantage of it and just soaking up a few very simple work days, but it always feels weird… like I never know when the next fire drill will hit. Does anyone else ever have moments of calm but almost feel anxious because of the unknown of the next surge of late-night and client fire drills?

Hello friends,
I have 5+ yrs exp. in managerial role in Tata Steel. I want to switch to some other company(preferably IT) and seeking a project management/ PMO/ Scrum master role, but I am not confident whether I can crack the interview as its not considered easy to switch from a non IT to IT company.

Will any certification like product/ project management, scrum master certification, lean six sigma etc. help in landing me the desired job?

Also, What other roles could I look at?
