What is the bench period in IBM? I joined on jan 2022, it's been 6weeks still clocking the bench code. I have cleared one project interview after one week suddenly they released me from the project. Don't know why After that I am not even getting single project call. What shall I do now? Should I wait here or search job from other companies? Worried :(
Hi, I've joined Accenture in April and I'm on bench and I wanted leaves for my marriage in May, whom should I get in contact with? And how much leave can I expect to be given as I need minimum 10days leave.
Question: I joined EY around a month back. On bench still and nobody apart from HR has contacted me. I have found another offer in the meanwhile. They are prepared to give me a 50% hike on EY's package. Should I take it or wait? My friends say, frequent job hopping will affect my resume. Tbh, I spent 6years at my last organization and EY is my first switch. I'm unhappy so far and don't think its a right fit for me. Any advice? Should I wait or go? Or negotiate with HR in EY against this offer?
Anyone here have any ideas on how to handle sexism on the bench? I’m at my wits end in a case where my opposing counsel (white male and also a total jerk) is buddy-buddy with our presiding judge (also white male). In every single hearing, opposing counsel interrupts me every time I address the court, and the judge not only allows it, he never allows me to get back to my point. He also likes to hold all of these hearings as off record status conferences. Any strategies to fight this?
Guys, i joined Mindtree in December 2021, and was allocated to a project...but the work they are making me do in is not as per my skill so i wanna get released. So, if i ask for project release from my manager, will i be moved to bench or i will have to leave the company??

Is there anything to worry?or should I look for other opportunities AccentureAccenture
Such low utilization at the firm I'm just over one calendar year now since start date. Is the bench at Deloitte for IM pretty big or am I the only one? About to get fired..
How is wlb at Fractal? I heard lateral hires have to be on bench for some time before getting into a project.Fractal
Manager keeps traveling in late on Mondays and we have important meetings that he's missing. I was just here to teach them a methodology for this type of project then roll off to something else.....
On the bench, and on PTO effectively until 10/1. No project lined up because apparently it's too far in the future for anyone to staff. I'll be leaving the firm before the next FYE.
what are the pros / cons to being “counseled out” after being on the bench for too long? Is there a severance package? Does it affect your track record with the former and new employer?
NOT BUSY! I have the opposite sentiment/effect of you all, I haven’t been busy for years! I have sat on the bench so much it’s not even funny. I have never been big on business development, sales, or account growth. I am an implementation and delivery person. Give me work and I will do it. It’s really strange how much I have coasted involuntarily. I actually have a lot of education and relevant work experience, just underutilized for years…
My project ends at the end of May and I'm planning on going on maternity leave in mid August. As a result, I may have to sit on the bench for 2.5 months given that it's been difficult finding another short term opportunity with those exact dates. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to navigate this? I asked my manager but he said he's never had that scenario before and wasn't able to provide much help.
My TFS just scheduled a meeting for TFS Checkpoint with me and my CC for Thursday. I've been on the bench for 12 business days now. Should I be worried?
How to ask to roll off a terrible project? I’m booked on it til May but it is most likely will extend til end of year
Where my fellow bench buddies at?
Bringing on Principals. We have spent 5-years building out a remote-native management consulting firm and now growing by bringing on Principals... Our firm is taking a different approach to growth by offering full access to our remote infrastructure and operations team as well as the bench of talent. With a fully transparent comp structure, our Principals set their own rates plus receive a % NET of their hours for each project. We can't compete on brand (yet), we can on ops and comp. Thoughts?
Sadness projects at stop work and I am going to miss perfectly good bench time at DU, by the time I get back we will be back at work.

What's is the typical starting salary for an entry-level/campus hire consultant for Big 3 Consulting firms? And for tier 2 consulting firms?
AlixPartners updating job title names. woot woot! What do any of the AP folks out there think? I think it's good for recruiting and for consulting. Associate > VP. VP > Senior VP
Are there any notable people who were former Accenture or Andersen, the way McKinsey has all those famous alums? I mean, we’re such a big company there has to be a handful, right? Right??

is it normal for my eyes to start twitching after working for 6 mos of looking at a computer screen?
Client strategy and direction is actually driven by the analysis and recommendations by 20-something year olds.
Hi everyone, I felt that after spending so much time at client site and reporting to client directly on my own (small atypical project with very few consulting colleagues), my sense of belonging to my own consulting company has diluted a lot. Motivation to social has also declined because work is difficult and I can’t find any colleague doing the same work as me to talk to. Anyone has been in similar situation before?
Burnt out. Every holiday it gets harder to re-motivate myself to get back to form. Any others feel similarly?
I hate that PTO means something completely different for BCGers. How did this not come up when they were naming the program?
So my BF follows Kylie Jenner on snapchat and it started bothering me recently when I realized she puts semi-naked pics up on the reg. Do I have a right to say something to him? It just seems weird.
Punched a director in the mouth today for talking shit. I've been holding that in for 2 years. Feels like I came for the first time.
Everyone has told me that once you leave consulting, people don’t care about your title (I.e., having the manager vs consulting title) - is this true? Trying to figure out the upside of staying to EM designation
Anyone interview at Guidehouse recently? If so, how kind did it take to hear back about an offer? Tomorrow will be a week
