Yes overhaul of performance management tools including MdS coming shortly ... in beta currently I believe. With that will be new robust metrics dashboards like the excel one released a month or so ago (as a teaser)

I think the only downside is if you were shitty and didn't hit your numbers. Then it's an easy let go.

Long Post : I have a divorced female friend that I have known for over 15 years and consider as a sister. For the past couple weeks because I was on the bench and bored we talked about an hour+ often, especially when I am walking and need company. My wife went through my T mobile call history and mad because I'm talking to her too often and too long. She knows the friend as well and we all hangout on multiple occasions. Am I doing something wrong here? Or my wife is just insecure?

Welp. Feeling like a failure. Made the jump to consulting and I feel like maybe I’m just not cut out for this line of work. I’m having a hard time breaking into the clique in the project I got staffed on, my new ideas are tossed to the side because “it’s always been done this way”, I’m a consultant but i keep getting stuck with just formatting slides and sheets. My +1’s seem to be the only thing that keep me going. It’s probably just one of those days but I am counting down till roll off.

I joined Capgemini one month back but now I got offer from Accenture. In accenture I didn't tell them about my joing in Capgemini. What will happen if abscond and join Accenture. I am in bench right now.

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.
