Yes it common. Keep in touch with your home manager and he should be able to help you. Also keep in applying for jobs Internally when the marketing team sends u an email.

smart

At cognizant majority of the time if you are on bench is cuz there isn’t a SOW signed with the client to get u started. But I’d reiterate that you should still be in touch with your home manager and if you think I need to work at other company complete your first year and then apply to other big 4. DM me if you need help.
