Risk of getting fired as a new experienced hire in HC with solid 3 ratings and tons of impactful PRD, but on the bench for too long?
For Accenture employee - does this company paid you when you are the bench? Does this company has experience manager? Does this company has Up or Out system? Need certification to be a manager?
Food for thought: With so many SMs and PPMDs stuck at home with kids and no help and with so many Staff, Seniors, Consultants, etc on the bench... (cont)
Worst part of being on the bench is the feeling of dread you get when you get pinged on Lync "Hey do you have bandwidth to work on a deck? No charge code though!"
How’s the commercial bench at PwC?
So as manager how do you deal when half your team is on bench and can’t find any other opportunities. Do you just go with flow and watch them go?
Up at 4am due to anxiety from being on the bench for 2 months. Questioning what’s wrong with me and why I’m having such a difficult time getting staffed in comparison to my peers.
Totally used to long days, but back-to-back 12-14 hours RIGHT after 2 weeks of bench is killer.
I'm a Sr analyst 85 chargeabily now, starting to get scared, been on the bench for a week and seems so dry, I'm in digital delivery..wanna work instead of being on bench..
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.
That moment when you walk out of a second round at a job you want, are told you're moving onto the next round, and also receive an email that you're now staffed after weeks on the bench 🙄
I'm 10lbs stronger on bench press when managers are in the gym, and 20lbs stronger when directors are there. Anyone?
Do I have to disclose where I'm working from if I'm on the bench? Flew to mallorca 2 weeks ago, I've paid up a month on the condo I'm at near pollenca. I log in and help with proposals and what not but during downtime I'm at the beach, exploring or biking. Nobody knows. Might stay here longer don't have a flight home yet... Just wondering if I can get in shit.
New SM at a firm and asked to lead a difficult project with abrasive client that 6+ SMs before me have cycled through and all been rolled off. I don’t have much of a choice being new to the firm… or do I? My thought was to sell my own role elsewhere (have lots of relationships) but the freight train has left the station & being on boarded to the challenging environment instead. Tips aside from - just do it & prove them all wrong? Can’t phone it in because I’m new. Any advice is welcomed
Hi 🐠 I have been on bench for 1 week now and have been trying to do my best to get a project.

My bipolar father has ruined our whole family's lives. He won't take his medicine, keeps having episodes, and only cares about himself. I only feel hatred when I am around him or see his face. He has made us miserable. I don't know how to deal anymore. He doesn't even know me anymore, he doesn't know any of us, but will put up an act in front of the world. I don't know what having a dad looks like. Apologies for the vent.

Any insight into PwC People & Organization practice? Curious about culture and people’s experience? Interviewing for a position on the West Coast, would love to learn about SF & LA office culture
In house interviews: I finished a final round of interviews and was expecting a final decision after the interviews. Rather than yes or no, the recruiter told me that the feedback is positive but they need to interview one more candidate to compare since I am the first one interviewed. And they wanted to add one more meeting with their new team member starting next week. Is this common and what’s the best way to deal with this unexpected message? Thanks!
