Hi Fishes,
Anyone who joined PwC AC Bangalore recently and is/was on bench for 2-3 months?
I'm worried about getting "FIRED". Does PwC fire in such cases?

Connected with Deployer, Coach and RL many times they say I should wait and need not worry whenever requirement will come they will inform me. I have been on bench for 2+ months now.

I don't think you should panic. Although keep record of all the communications for future reference just in case they create unnecessary issue at the time of performance appraisal discussion.


I was on bench for 3 months. and I belong to advisory as well. They did panic hiring without projects in hand. Now they are waiting for deals to be confirmed. Don't worry PwC won't fire you as they are not able to find you a project. Only bad thing is you will be given default rating.


10% increment. 10% bonus which will be pro rated based on number of months worked till March.

Guys please comment on the post that how did you handle the situation?
It would be great for a person like me who has made his first switch.

Which service line?

Advisory Practice

Are you getting full salary on bench?

Current CTC, offered CTC and YOE?

You've read my mind OP! I'm in the same boat as you. Waiting for a project since 2 months & a new joinee as well


Don't worry. PwC has many projects. If needed they will train to a different skill and will allocate you to a project.

So I just finished the interview process at Square for a Developer Relations Engineer position and am waiting for a decision on an offer. I want to be prepared for negotiations in case it comes to that. I was told that the ladder I would be on is the TPM ladder (which is similar to the SWE ladder). Does anyone know what the current TC ranges are for salary, bonus, and RSUs? I'm assuming I'd be at L5 or L6 as it's a senior level position. Thanks in advance! Square
