Hello GDS Folks, I am currently on bench. When I asked about the projects to my counsellor and senior manager they told there is no projects available for my skillset. I didn't get any further communication. I am not sure which technology to learn to get the project. How long am I allowed to be on bench?. It's been a month already.

Still you haven’t answered the ctc part. This is an anonymous platform, so you shouldn’t worry about disclosing pay details here. Everyone does, and responses will be based on that. If you’re not going to disclose those, you’ll not get desired response. You may use LinkedIn or Quora then.

I’m an ex EY employee amd hence asked you the ctc part. Okay, now you should look for outside opportunities where you’ll get better hike and work. Why you want to stay in bench and worry? Market is hot, you even don’t know your worth. I was in a project at EY and paid fairly. But micromanagement triggered me to look outside and got a fantastic hike which was above my imagination/expectation.

What’s your skillset, yoe and ctc?

I am not a new joiner. I am working with EY for more than 7 months. I was working in a project. But my contract period with that client is over. So I am on bench now
