People on the “bench” - how does that work? What do you do all day? Do you still get paid? Trying to understand this

Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.

Is there just not a lot going on this week? I've been trying to get some PD work this week since on the bench and haven't been able to get anything.

Any insights on working at sales force? Salary, compensation package and work culture.. thoughts?
Thought this was a great interview with James Carville - as someone who feels pretty center left, this mostly makes sense to me: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.vox.com/platform/amp/22338417/james-carville-democratic-party-biden-100-days Fellow fish, where do you think the missing links are for the dems to win on these issues? I actually think Biden’s messaging strategy has been largely impeccable
Today I worked from home because I’m sick... guess who just violently puked during a conference call and forgot to turn on mute first 🙃
For the people who know SFO, I made it from gate 89 to security and back in eight minutes (left my phone at security- very long story). Was wearing an Equinox shirt-would have made a great commercial!
Would any McK Specialists be willing to chat? I’ve been contacted for such a role, and am wondering whether it’s true consulting or more “middle office.” Don’t want to be a second class citizen if that’s the case so hoping to understand more

When are the other B4 finding out about their raises? I wonder how far off are we in FDD. New salary for SM1 Tier 1 city moved from $151k to $160k. What are the SM1 in tier 1 cities making in EY, KPMG and Deloitte right now before raises?

I’m in a small, close knit bar. I love my firm (not biglaw) and the people I work with but I really, truly hate billing hours. I am interviewing with a boutique firm that does not track billables and has a great rep for work/life balance. I’m excited at the prospect of more $ for less time, but will also feel guilty to leave my firm after they spent significant resources over the past few years “raising” me, only to lose me. Tell me I’m being silly and that this won’t burn bridges.

Started as a baby legal assistant about ten years ago at a transactional firm - now the majority (seven years) of my experience is in litigation. I am wanting to move more toward transactional or in-house now. Am I basically starting completely over? I am well respected and sought-out in litigation, but I'm unsure of how to market myself in the direction I want to go with as much confidence. Has anyone successfully made this move?
