ON THE BENCH!! After almost 2 years of being on different projects, couldn’t be happier for a little break. What do folks do on the bench to enjoy it to the max? Do tell! 🤗
What’s the longest amount of time you’ve spent on the bench? And what did you do during the time? First time on the bench after 3 years here
Long Post : I have a divorced female friend that I have known for over 15 years and consider as a sister. For the past couple weeks because I was on the bench and bored we talked about an hour+ often, especially when I am walking and need company. My wife went through my T mobile call history and mad because I'm talking to her too often and too long. She knows the friend as well and we all hangout on multiple occasions. Am I doing something wrong here? Or my wife is just insecure?
Shoutout to all the consulting moms out there. I ever make it big you’re getting bench work for a year. God bless my wife. My gosh

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
I don’t understand how people keep posting about the bench and being unassigned. I’m in advisory(not audit) and my entire LoS is trending 90%+ utilization
Got staffed my first week in the firm, was expecting the overhiring to give me some quality beach time.
