7 weeks get at me

helpful

Really, no PRD either?

I got 3, just a few hours a week on two of them. One is supposed to take off but haven’t received any information yet. Oh well, not super interested in taking up anymore of ‘em. Heard it doesn’t really help you anyway.

100 hour workweeks still for me 🤷🏻‍♂️

No need to brag mate lol

Better be working on resume and job hunting. Being on the bench is not ideal during this down turn.

That’s my secret VP1, I’m always prepared to be laid off.

I started a consulting job at an upper mid-tier firm back in May. I sat on the bench for a month before being onboarded onto client (FAANG client to be non-specific) and I am more than a month on this new client. There are about 5 other C/SC and a few Principals that do “check-ins” with the group. I have been assigned an ETL task (PySpark/Airflow) that will take me about 40 hours e2e to deploy. This is my assignment for the next 4 months. Most of my colleagues do not know code at all. Normal?
