Hope not. Planning on moving from Deloitte US to AU in a few months.

Anecdotally speaking from a PwC perspective it seems to be a lot of juniors on the bench not necessarily more senior folks - perhaps over hiring of juniors

Yes. Change of federal government (who are still figuring out their spending priorities and have stated they want to reduce use of consultants) and less favourable economic conditions are having an impact. FY22 was a big year for Big 4 - I’d expect things will start to stabilise a bit more over the coming months.

We were but not any more.

Hi guys,
I have doubt as I have cleared Mindtree orchard Training above 70% marks as per their eligibility criteria.
My educational profile is - 10th - 74.55% , 12th - 56.31% & BE - 6.56/10 CGPA. In the offer letter received that Educational qualification for BE should be above 60% i.e CGPA*10 = 65.6% in my case.
Now I'm worried that will they terminate me for 12th marks , because in offer letter only BE % was mentioned as eligibility. And now I'm on bench after training. Please help 🙏

Hello Folks,

Advice Needed.

Im a Ux Designer, i have got an offer from wipro and Leadsquared.
Package wise both are same.
Im confused to make a decision.

Leadsquared is a SaaS based organisation, no idea wether its gonna come under Service or Product, Wipro is service which im sure of.

My fear is, I heard that in wipro we would be put on bench, if we dont get a client in 1 or 3 months, then they will kick out handing the termination.

Please help, response is highly Valued.

Thanks in advanc
