How are projects allocated to new joinees in Accenture? How long do they allow to be on bench!!
What is your take on consultants being stuck on long projects? It’s like pulling teeth trying to roll off of some accounts. We never get a say in our extension. Will leadership address this?

I joined Accenture recently in Level 8 and have been recently rolled off from a project to bench. The issue here is I joined as a Scrum master and could not clear 2 client interviews to get into a project. This is making me anxious regarding my job security. Any inputs are welcome.
I'm currently on the Bench, and may have just found a project which I'd like to join. Would it be okay to email a senior manager directly and ask for a quick conversation, or would it be better to wait for a formal requisition on the internal jobs position site?
Deloitte Hey DT fishes. I have a friend applying to DT consulting, in the States, and they mentioned brining her on for bench absorbtion. Any thoughts on what that means? Is it basically back up help?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

Pro tip for whoever needs it: If you want your legs to grow stop doing one “all-inclusive” leg day per week and start splitting up the muscle groups. For example, have one day a week dedicated to Hamstrings/Glutes/Abductors/Calves and one day a week dedicated to Quads/Adductors/Calves. This way you are able to get much more volume for each muscle group per week. Additionally, the intensity is MUCH higher…which is also a key component to muscle growth in my opinion. Give it a shot!

I’ve had back pain, either in lower back or sciatic nerve for the past 8 months. I got released from physical therapy around the holidays because I was making improvements and wasn’t in pain. However, since returning to work and working busy season hours it’s difficult to stay seated for most of the day. I bought a standing desk, but was wondering if anyone has any suggestions? I need to make some serious changes as I’m 27 and should not have this much back pain so young 😢
