I'm on the bench as well

Good luck 🍀, in 2016 FS bench = laid off

Can't say, but I am not Risk. I think there are projects in the pipeline, just not signed coming off break.

Just got a job offer as a bench applications analyst. Looking for an insight into the company! TIA

Got word from the recruiter that an offer is imminent, but they’re looking at pushing my start date a few months out since the bench is so full currently. I understand these things take time, but my current job is so mind-numbing I honestly don’t know if I can last a few more months and keep putting on the happy facade to leadership. I guess I’ll take all my PTO in the meantime, but any other tips for surviving this period? Or any ideas on advocating for a sooner start date?

Hey EPAMMERS , a good news to all EPAM Anywhere new joiners who are yet to join.

The only constraint with EPAM Anywhere is the bench pay policy. We don't get fixed salary while on bench.

New joiners have an option to opt for fixed pay or flexible pay. Do reach out to HR and get your salary structure revised.

NOTE: While revising from flexible to fixed pay your actual CTC will be reduced. In my case Flexible pay was X and now fixed pay is X-1.8LPA.

Hi everyone - so I joined a new firm about 6 months ago from audit to financial due diligence. Since joining I’ve only been staffed on about 5 deals of which 2 died. Also, after a deal wraps up I’m usually on the bench for about 1.5 weeks before I get picked up again. Is this normal? I just don’t want to get to 1 year and feel like I still don’t know much. TIA
