Wow! But as in - if you’re on the bench and it’s out of your control? Or if you’re on the bench bc you keep getting rolled off and getting poor performance reviews?

Not true. These individuals (if there are any) will be previously identified low performers who have not improved. Ongoing bench time will just be one symptom of that non-improvement

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.

*URGENT* This weekend is my last working day TCSL.

My yoe - 10 years.

Tech - Oracle apps / Fusion technical.
I have 2 offers Capgemini (C2) and IBM (7B).
Both offered somewhat the same CTC. I was determined to join IBM. But seeing my friends on bench for the past 2 months after joining IBM is making me fear to join IBM.
Plus in IBM, I have heard people managers don't support that much in getting projects.
And also very few projects in Oracle apps in IBM.

Please suggest. @Capgemini IBM

On the other hand, we just had a round of layoffs so who knows if there are more coming down the pipeline.
