God you Accenture ppl are lazy.

I would say "look for projects" for 2 weeks (chill and do nothing), then actually start looking so you can be back on a project by week ~4

Accenture layoffs are behind us, not sure what DTE you are in, but I have an analyst who has been on the bench for six weeks and he is still okay. He really is looking for a role, just hasn't landed one yet. He is in Tech, Resources

With all the recent layoffs, you would think people would want to stay chargeable... You're kind of stupid

Back in Feb/March they were cutting people after 8 weeks on the bench but, as stated above, the layoffs are behind us (hopefully). They have, however, been asking for expected chargeability thru end of FY. Could this possibly be utilized to trim more fat when paired with end of year ratings?

Sa1 if you think we're lazy because we like bench time you're wrong and really only giving information away about yourself. That only supposes we don't do productive things with our free time - it's easy to make assumptions like that when you're speaking from personal experience. Sorry you need a job to tell you how to spend your time

@A1, must not be looking very bc we have quite a few open tech resources roles on my project

A4 which state? He is a first year analyst, i know he has been passed up for a few.

I just started a new project 2 weeks ago and just found out it’s a train wreck. I am set up to fail already! No training and a lot of soft lies to client by Senior managers leading. I’m a manager, can I just ask to roll off? How does this affect my job security?

Just rolled off an engagement where I worked 3 weeks of 80s, with a month of 60s before that. Now this new job I’m on is looking like it’ll be 60-80 for the next month too and I’m having a hard time focusing. Anyone else deal with this? What’s your strategy for staying productive. Feel like I’m dragging the new team down.
