Hi all 👋🏻
I am on bench since 4 months and I feel worried. There are no projects of my technology as of yet.

Is there a chance of being asked to resign?

Is there a chance of me being put in PIP? If yes, then will I be automatically put on PIP? Or will someone contact me, warnings will be sent and then PIP will be initiated?

I have very less idea about PIP policy in IBM.

Thanks in advance for any insights on this.

What to do when you’ve asked to roll off of a project months ago but engagement leadership just keep giving you more and more responsibility and reeling in deeper. I spoke with my EM at beginning of summer about roll off and the only project proposed to me was a 100% on sight engagement, which I feel like they knew I’d decline. I don’t think this is a performance issue, because I was agile promoted in May and received SI rating. I’m so overwhelmed, burnt, and just feel stuck on this project.

Hi! How long is the bench duration here? Is there lack of projects?

What will happen if you get rejected in multiple client interviews, EY will keep you on bench or will sack you?
In the past, completed two projects but duration was short (4-6 months).

Is it ok to blame candidate if the domain he is interviewing for is not his core domain? What's the average duration a candidate is deployed on a project?

For those who are leaving or who have left, have you experienced guilt? I’m coming up on a final interview with an amazing job, but I am wracked with guilt about leaving my team even though I have felt miserable for months on end. The project I’m leaving is terribly underscoped and know it’ll be really tough for my team especially since the bench is so thin so replacement may be tough to find. Is it a reason to stay?

What are your thoughts on standing up to a partner when they try to chastise you for something they are just wrong about? One option is to just take it because they are your superior. Another option is to push back. I’m a 6th year associate close to making partner. One partner does this a lot and when associates apologize and back down he seems to enjoy his superiority, but I can tell he doesn’t really respect them. I wonder if I get right back in his face, if he’ll see me more as an equal.
