I wish every Sunday could feel like this. When you've just rolled off a project and in the pleasant shade of some beach time
*on the bench currently* mom: so you get paid for doing no work and relaxing at home. Me: yeah basically mom: what the hell kind of job is that 😂 #firstgenamerican
Quitting the firm in the next two months and have 15 PTO days left unused. Does it make sense to roll off my project and then use my 15 days of PTO before quitting or to cash out my 15 days?
How is the variable payout at EYGDS ? How it compares to UBS in tech consulting ? And is there bench period in EY GDS?
Is there any advice for networking into projects when you don’t know many people at the firm yet? I always to help on BD work when I’m on the bench, but it never turns into any billable work. Every time I have talked to a partner/senior manager I was told I don’t have the skill set they’re looking for, but I don’t know how to build up from there. Feeing very lost but I want to improve my approach.
ACN Strat: how common is it for people to be let go? Be it being on bench too long, performance, etc. Seems it’s a common thing at some firms
Literally have no motivation anymore. So sick of doing proposal and BD work for projects that don't sell, been on the bench over a month, and feel like there's no end in sight. No help from leadership
Offers from Deloitte and Guidehouse. Both similar salaries. Guidehouse is direct project hire and Deloitte is hire to the bench until they find a good fit for me. Is that risky in this environment? Any advice is appreciated
I have joined nagarro and it has been one month and I am currently on bench as a java developer associate staff Engineer, will I get fired ?
Such low utilization at the firm I'm just over one calendar year now since start date. Is the bench at Deloitte for IM pretty big or am I the only one? About to get fired..
On the bench for the first time this year. It feels weird not to be packing for a week of travel right now.
Perhaps they should also build their diversity bench strength more? https://strategyonline.ca/2021/10/27/rethink-builds-its-strategic-bench-strength/
Will crazy expensive gyms still be a thing post Covid? No one will see you because you're wearing a mask, you won't be able to walk the bench press runway in your $1000 Nike outfit and your time there is limited and they'll probably cut the perks (scented towels). I'm debating whether to keep my membership - previously, paying a lot was one of the reasons that made me keep goin

Hey guys , I’m new at Deloitte and consulting in general . I realized the staffing process is very very subjective based on your tenure at the firm, who likes you or doesn’t like you etc. I’m having a hard time getting staffed, and even though I hear how great I was I keep hearing how they picked someone else with more “Deloitte experience “. Did anyone experience this when they started consulting ? Getting really frustrating, and I’ve been on bench a month now.

It's funny reading complaints about work load and travel in consulting. Come on people you signed up for this... it's not like you're military in the Middle East. This is your life embrace it.
When your friends schedule a holiday party at 830pm specifically so you can make it and you still don't make it 😓
Front door was shut too soon - with gate agent still on-board. When re-opened, the emergency slide deployed and now the plane is grounded. Happy Monday.
How much personal info do I share with my M when taking some time off here and there? Terminaly ill parent in a different state and I'm the only one in the family able to travel to visit/care for him for next 2 weeks.
I do not understand why guys invite girls to dinner and then ask to split the check... Then ask to go out again. I think guys need to still treat women like ladies.
When I present my slide in front of my manager, he put hands on my shoulder for a few seconds and apparently I don’t feel comfortable even it’s only a few seconds. What’s the right thing to do ?
What household income would you need to be comfortable buying an 800k house? Assuming no other debt. Know there are many other factors besides HHI, just taking the temperature here
I’m planning to leave consulting and the industry entirely, is there any reason to give more than a few days notice before quitting? Don’t want to burn bridges, but then I don’t care all that much.
I FUCKED UP ON GETTING OUT OF MY ROLE IN THIS PROJECT AND AM NOW STUCK AT THIS CLIENT FOR THE NEXT 3 MONTHS. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Why don't more (white collar) Americans take breaks in-between jobs? Like a month or two summer break. Is this mindset that you need to work all the time a vestige from back when people would work at the same company for 40 years until they die?
