At this point they should just take any project.... Like... Anything.. Internal roles, PMOs, errand person.. ANYTHING.

They should just manually staff you on your first project this is ridiculous

I'm completely against the notion of networking your ass off to get a job and then networking your ass off again to prove you are worthy of actually working

I mean it's a catch 22...you network a ton but no one wants to staff you without project experience

like

Strategy bench is deep and the first project is always hard but networking is critical. There is no reason that your friend should have been unstaffed since July - also anecdotally I have heard that they have started letting MBAs go with low utilization

@acn5 - I know 2 fy15 layoffs including one person from my b-school - also not sure if it was termed a layoff or getting fired

like

Did the 2 layoffs correlate with performance ? Or just poor chargeability ?

The bench is deep but that is pretty surprising. Getting staffed is definitely a proactive thing as I'm sure it is with most places. I started in August and worked my ass of to network; have been staffed on multiple projects.

Wow not staffed since July? That is kinda surprising...should be ok in the first year because of the ASCDP shield but dunno for how long

I started in October and got staffed in 3 days...

@Accenture 3. I have not heard of any MBA layoffs yet. Anecdotes are wrong

I heard of one recently

FY15 or FY16??

FY15 of course

Like I said, FY16 ers are ok till August ( atleast that's what I think)..

@acn3 , I think it is termed a layoff if they get severance

Sorry thought you were initially referring to fy16 class

I couldn't say about performance - but I doubt they were in the top 2 buckets - definitely chargeability issues- bench >3 months and not a 100% before that

I’m curious what the opinions are on the process they have seen or used to get promoted. I’ve never had it happen in my career this way but in my mind, your work speaks for itself, you advocate for yourself, ask for a promotion when it’s not been offered. Then you get promoted after you make your case if you do qualify. The way I’ve seen it (& a reason I’m leaving my current company) is where they only promote people when they’ve threatened to leave or received a different offer. Thoughts?
