How’s the commercial bench at PwC?

PwC peeps: I have over 135% utilization. Has anybody used G&A code instead of the vacation code? Since I don't see that I'll be on the bench anytime soon and that 30% has to go somewhere. Tips, ideas?

I rolled off a project 3 months ago. They keep reaching out and asking me to help onboard new teammates to give them historical knowledge (it’s a long-term project). Do I have to keep doing this? Or does it get to a point where I can say I don’t have the time and there must be someone more recent who can help?
Would do a lot to get some bench time ....
What do you do when you're on the bench?

~4 months ago I had a corp strategy interview at Tmobile. The case question was “should we enter the video streaming market?” After going through the case I concluded that no they shouldn’t. At the end of the interview they let me know that they haven’t publicly announced it yet but they actually are entering the market (with Tvision). Lo and behold I didn’t get the next interview. Today they announced they’re shutting it down. 😂
