My former PM actually told me he rolled off my team because I wouldn't reschedule my PTO. I had this PTO scheduled since June. Another person took 3 weeks of PTO and she was retained. Unethical?
On the bench = stop shaving
Explaining the beach to ppl and them being like "Wait so you still get paid during this so called beach time?" Yes.....Yes I do!😎
Bench life is driving me crazy.
Seems like a trend here. Lots of peeps on the bench + layoffs at a bunch of firms = recession is coming

1. Industry wide question: is your bench heavy? 2. Accenture Strategy question: Do you feel like there's not enough work to go around, and the work that is available isn't teaching you much?
My CC was let go today due to chargability and not getting staffed after a long period on the bench..
Woke up this morning with a nice morning wood, with no one beside me. It's like my dude is on the bench. Need to staff on a project soon.

When on the bench, do you stay online all day?
Sunday eve before the beginning of a week on the bench . Oops I mean beach. Miami to be exact.
Sitting on the bench has some perks. Slept in and then went and got a coffee and saw this huge line for a Hillary Clinton rally so I said, "fuck it," and spent my day listening to Hilldawg.

For post-MBA external/experienced hires, how different is the process from campus hiring? Same case interviews? Obviously it differs by firm, but just wanted to get a general sense.

I moved into my current place 4 years ago and stored 5-7 boxes full of old books/ items I didn’t think I would need daily in the back of my landlord’s warehouse. I haven’t needed the items for 4 years, but they now raised my rent for the first time and I want to know where my stuff is. They said they have new renters of the warehouse and my stuff is there, but squished into a corner and they need to look for it. They didn’t say when. I said later this month/June is fine. Should I be mad?
Just had my CRT discussion, no raise but I got a one time award of 2% of my salary. Wth is that ? Has anyone else got that too ? Any thoughts ?
