There’s a difference in pay from being on the bench vs being on a project?

funny

I don't know ? Is there 😱

Can you elaborate your question? Because most firms don’t change your salary if you’re on the bench? My salary is x regardless of what project I am or am not on

That makes sense ... I guess people that can't me placed at projects will just be let go.

Not exactly, but again, highly depends on the firm, every firm has a bench, I’ve been on the bench for 2 months once.

😱😱😱😱 2 months

Drafted 4th in 10 team .5 PPR. Bench is a little underwhelming, but solid starters. Went with upside bench players. Got offered Brady/Mixon for Allen/Robinson, but I think I like Robinson over Mixon even though Mixon is getting drafted higher, but let me know your thoughts.

Finished the final interview cycle and expecting an offer. Has anyone ever worked for or is familiar with Unify Consulting? Wondering what visibility they have and any advice on offer negotiation and severance pay as a back up - if I get let go after project completion. It's a full time position but I've read of some people getting let go 2 weeks post project completion. They advertise being paid while on the bench and that it's not the normal case. Thanks in advance for your advice!

Idk what to do with my career. I feel very lost. I have been sitting on the bench a lot. I have tried networking but no projects come up. Not that I’m complaining about having no work, but I just feel like I’m missing out on the experiences and personal growth / development. As someone early on their career, I would like to learn as much as possible. Should I apply for other jobs?

At the end of the project, partner mentioned that he really appreciated the effort and if he could help me with anything. Continued…

Just some thought for those of you interviewing this morning. Early in my career, I took pride in never not being offered the job I was interviewing for. The older my career got, I realized it’s more of a badge of dishonor. If you’re not asking the hard questions and pushing for what you want out of your career, enough so to push out a few companies along the way, you’re not doing it correctly!

Ladies, I had a breakthrough with my boyfriend and I am so proud. I have encouraged him to go to therapy for years. He grew up with a father who is emotionally abusive. He felt like he didn’t need to go because he could just “handle it” (part of the toxic culture he was raised in) so I stopped pushing. Yesterday he told me he was going to therapy to try it out, I said okay, and made him a coffee to go. He came home, hugged me, cried, and read me a list of things he was working on. 🥺💛

I’m prescribed Vyvanse for ADD and currently take 60mg every morning I’m at work. It’s great, and helps me cruise through even the most monotonous assignments. At the end of the day, though, I’m mentally exhausted from the medication wearing off and it’s tough to unwind after I finish billing for the day. I’m not focused enough without the Vyvanse to handle my workload, so not taking it isn’t really an option. Anyone else have the same issue and/or have tips for dealing with the after-effects?
