The hell is a bench program?

likefunny

I’m just trying to get a general idea of what benches are like company to company. Picking a company with a good bench program is what I am trying to get at. Which is why I am inquiring about so many companies, sorry if it seems so weird!

I know unifiy has a bench though I’m not sure on their compensation policy. It used to be 50% of base salary but I think now it’s 100%

Why are you so interested in the bench? I’ve seen so many posts about the bench from you this past week or so

Same it’s weird....

Interviewing with Elixirr next week for a (Senior) Consultant role in NYC; recruiter connected me to opportunity. Concerns are that they do more execution than strategy and quoted compensation at $115K might be lower than industry average. Would appreciate any insight on reputation and career development prospects.

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.

What are tips for interviewing when your current role has defeated you? I’m anxious and depressed a decent amount of the time. All I think about it my job right now & how terrible it is..even though I’m trying to remember I need this job to financially support myself. I think it has also knocked down my confidence and self esteem and so now I’m wondering why anyone would want to hire me after interviewing me.

How do I learn to accept my role in the company and "slow down" career wise. I am used to quick promos and my new company is hiring someone with equal product exp to a more senior role than me, likely due to his 3 more yrs of overall experience. I am having my first child in the next few months and I think it would be good for me to learn some patience in my career growth and just enjoy my current role. I personally think going on leave will hurt my near term growth but should I even care? TIA

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
