Good luck though buddy. I hope it works out.

OP - unfortunate but that's the reality right now. B/c of bad leadership decisions, people like you are being punished for it. While 2 months on the bench is certainly not ideal, Accenture is taking a very hard stance these days of 8 weeks on the bench means you get 2 weeks to find a project or you're out. Several people have been terminated this way. You have to fight for your life and reach out to everyone to find a project. Even a 1 week project resets the clock hit up your network and start calling in favors...

Which practice? And how long have you been on the bench?

Do you have any PTO you can use to extend the 2 week deadline they gave you?

If you want to avoid it, look for roles in places (states, not relatively local cities) without offices.

Damn that's rough dude

how long have you been on the bench

2 months on bench, holiday season

woah that's a nice two months though. how long you been with Accenture? does this happen a lot?

What city you in OP?

Which practice OP?

I work for a startup and my CEO is talking to a potential client about taking a white label of our SaaS product. It would be the same product with the clients branding, certain features may be turned off and small differences in copy. My question is how would you build that? I’m not technical so in simple terms would it be 1 code base, that would create 2 instances and then some sort of configuration which will apply settings like branding, copy, feature flags etc?

Having a really hard time motivating my team. The client adds new priorities and more work everyday even though the team is up until midnight working everyday. Partner is saying to tough it out, but we have already had several people quit making it worse. I just inherited the project and have never seen a bigger dumpster fire in my life. I have never viewed analysts as expendable and don’t think work / life balance is acceptable. Any advice would be appreciated!
