Ok I don’t want to sound hypersensitive, but does anyone else think the phrase “on the bench” is kind of harsh? I’m not even on the bench but I feel slightly uncomfortable saying it
I’m supposed to roll off next week because my work stream is ending so I pinged an md and said I’m free for a new project in a week. Today, I’m reading the new sow and I find out that the project is keeping me on a few more weeks. Pretty messed up that I wasn’t told about this in person. Do I have to stay?

Accenture CN peeps, my manager has not been able to staff me to a project for 2 weeks now after my release from one of the projects where the role as as good as content manager’s. I had voluntarily asked for my roll off as the role was just to upload come content on various platforms. They tried allocating me to some internal project but I asked them to staff me on a client facing project. I want to know what is the impact of all this on your performance or relationship with manager etc.?

Hello fish! Any idea about Affirm Inc. ? I got reached out for an analytics manager role. How’s the WLB, career progression? Also, will exit opportunities be severely restricted to FinTech when I want to move?

I hate gerrymandering. Regardless of who does it, though research and statistical analysis points to republicans doing it more aggressively and to greater effect. What happens here? Does it just get left unchecked? Or it does until it goes too far? SCOTUS has already said partisan gerrymandering is beyond the reach of federal courts.

Hi, I’m looking to intern/volunteer/freelance WFH; My background is in Communication and Digital Media: I also can assist you with admin tasks. FYI I speak Spanish, in case you need to translate docs.
Got in a car accident and havent been sure how to deal with getting care. I use the VA and they paid for my ER visit, some medication, and a primary visit. I need to see a chiropractor but I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to do since that's the only insurance I use and they take months to get any appointments in presently. It was the other drivers fault but I have to come out of pocket until care is completed then haggle w/ em. Do I wait on the VA? Just pay cash to someone local? Recs?
Currently a senior consultant for financial services clients doing implementation work. I want to move to FAANG in the long term.

1. We should wait until the results of the IRS audit to know the full picture 2. The IRS have been very unfair to the President 3. Why is the NYT releasing this information now? Why not six months ago? 4. All this shows is that President Trump knows how to outsmart the IRS like any billionaire 5. President Trump donates his salary 6. He had a loss in 2016 because of the terrible Obama economy 7. Sleepy Joe has dementia!
