Any reason to be worried about being on the bench in OTT? I know a lot of us are, but worried because of the S&O layoffs, etc. Anyone heard anything?

OTT is Human Capital I believe? Seems to me that they are hiring .. I keep getting notifications every day


S&O layoffs? I guess I haven't been on this app as frequently the last few weeks, anyone mind catching me up?


I'm in human capital and I've been on the beach for 3 months+


Makes sense. I'm actually a Consultant but have only been on the bench a month or so.


Oh, even more reason not to worry ;) there are some of us suffering more out here


Oh I know. Lol. "Own your career"? I've tried owning my career for 3 months. I've reached out to dozens of managers and partners. I've send hundreds of emails. I upheld my responsibility, it's time for Deloitte to uphold its.


How deep is the OTT bench? I'm interviewing there next week.

Deloittes staffing system is extremely screwed up

I don't think you should be worried about the layoffs...if that's what you're thinking. They hired us in the first place and it's their responsibility to staff is. Besides yore probably a BA right? Don't worry they've put so many resources and training in us it wouldn't be economical to lay us off lol

Lmao at D1 who thinks it is only Deloitte responsible to staff you. You're in for arise awakening. You need to direct your career just as much, if not more.


You are just as responsible as Deloitte when it comes to staffing my friend..

Not quite how it works. Guessing your fresh out of school?

Go to a firm held happy hour, BRG events, townhall meetings, etc.. Make connections and then you will get staffed

Organic social. Dead or alive? You choose.


While recruiting: we don't care about your background. We focus on transferable skills and hiring intelligent people. While on the job: do you have experience in x, y, or z? No? Nevermind.


How is your interaction with your research teams at your firms like? Mine requires us to give them a project code/charge code any time we want information/support. Seems inefficient to me


Curious to know how much time everyone thinks they spend on Fishbowl! Per day. Please upvote. Thanks!


My second client, a divorced lady in her mid 50's, with about $200k with me wants out. Regrettably I haven't communicated enough. Our relationship has been good too. Not sure how to feel about this.


Does anyone else think of every project team as a remake of the breakfast club?


Did we really kill 350 terrorists ? Or just 6 plants? Why is the govt so hesitant to show evidence? Clearly they are hiding something


Hi all! Thanks for joining this Bowl. Let’s use this space to share resources and create a braintrust of talented and successful educators 👍


Anyone from the Memphis area? How do you like it there? How is the airport situation there? Is it a decent base location for a consultant?


What are you thankful for?


Appraisal price came lower than offer price. How can I make seller sell the place at the appraisal price?


Anyone know good campgrounds in Northern California? Looking for something that’s first come first served or reservable (all the popular ones Yosemite, Big Sur etc are sold out naturally)


Sitting in 200k cash, little confused as to invest now or to sit on sidelines till election or correction. I think the stock valuation just does not make any sense. This is all stimulus money flowing into market by hedge funds or big corporates. I see this as wealth transfer from bottom 90% to top 10%. Think a 20% correction is on the cards in next few months. Have only 40k invested in ETFs


What. The hell. Is. TopTal?

Just curious, anyone received their $600 stimulus checks yet?


Even though having COVID back in November was miserable, felt good today being able to donate convalescent plasma to hopefully help someone in need.


Does anybody know if CrossCountry Consulting requires drug testing as part of an offer? Asking for a friend...


So my fiancé was told to buy “brown shoes” for a wedding as a groomsmen. He’s tried to tell all the others that there are different shades of brown but they’re not keen on deciding as a group. Anyone have good men’s dress shoe recommendations with a $100-$200 budget? Hoping he can at least get a good pair for work and wedding. Thanks in advance!


Is it easy to change the project for which they are hiring a candidate in Pwc SDC Bangalore in D&A department?
