Hey fishes, I have joined Cognizant as a business analyst in July 2021. I got allocated to a project, but my billing hasn't been started. I fill training and non-billable in timesheet and has never been exposed to the client yet, but I work with some seniors and assist them. Learning is stagnated, and I feel that how is it possible that a guy from 6 months is allocated to a project but neither getting work nor billable? Is it normal in Cognizant? Please help me to understand.

Recent career-switcher here. While I’m a veteran with the ad process, I am new to the UX agile process. Is it normal to not use briefs whatsoever? Is it normal for the UX research lead to have a stakeholder workshop (sans designers) to think of concept “thought starters,” then have a separate meeting with the UX design lead to vote on which 1 of 3 concepts to proceed with? In advertising, this is analogous to the client and researchers doing the campaign idea then telling the CD to execute it.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

Female fish, what’s making you staying in M&A consulting beyond manager?

My team would do better if we worked together, but it's very cutthroat. I'm not sure if there's a way for me to set the tone for us to collaborate more. If I ask for support I'll look weak, if I offer support it might get used against me in a weird way.
