Is it okay to sit on bench for 2 months(i recently joined Deloitte usi on 28th feb and been on bench since then), my source is showing project start date from 25th April.

I'm planning to use this time on bench to learn new skills and reasearch for other career opportunities.

Hi in TCS, i know the client doesn't have billing as they recently shuffled a more experienced resource with a less experienced resource saying it was due to low billing. But they are saying they will give me long term onsite? Even clients wants me there but there is a routine that client will offer three months onsite for all employees in that project. Apart from that I don't think there is long term opportunity, do you think tcs can negotiate with client for one onsite position? In NP now

Hello All!
I’m in a really confusing and frustrating situation.
We pitch and we win: clients loves creativity, strategies and ideas but they take forever to sign contracts. We currently have 4 clients on hold with approved quotes but not signed contracts. (One of the client is postponing for the past 15 months!!) They are not shopping around, they are not taking any assets or doing anything in house. Just waiting... I can’t tell you how much damage this is doing to the agency.
Any good advice?
