Hi: are there a lot of people on the bench in PwC FS? I am getting staffed but it's taking a while.

Ok are you in cap markets in Ny? I have been for a couple of weeks ---

Yes. I've been on it for monthS

I'm in DC

Hmm. May be hard to get staffed because you are in DC. In NY, competition for projects is strong, but you are constantly in front of the partners.

You can take my spot; been traveling to NYC every week for the last 18 months #sickofit

Yep. It's easier to look for new jobs than projects

I'm in FS and on the bench. Not in NYC

Is very high stress over the staffing process a good enough reason to leave? I’m not the best cold-networker, i’m much better at keeping a network once i’ve actually worked with people. I am constantly anxious and stressed and thinking about when i’ll next roll off, worrying about being let go off the bench and never finding a new role.

Anyone here have any ideas on how to handle sexism on the bench? I’m at my wits end in a case where my opposing counsel (white male and also a total jerk) is buddy-buddy with our presiding judge (also white male). In every single hearing, opposing counsel interrupts me every time I address the court, and the judge not only allows it, he never allows me to get back to my point. He also likes to hold all of these hearings as off record status conferences. Any strategies to fight this?

How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.

Have any of your associations put out a climate and culture survey to your union members? I'm hearing that there are many districts that have surveyed their members anonymously regarding assessing the climate and culture within their school community.  If so, would you please provide me with a list of possible questions that you would deem to be appropriate and effective to gauge any possible issues?  Naturally, the questions need to be without bias and completely anonymous. No Google forms.
