I'm starting to get the impression that my leadership doesn't want to get me off the bench, and that they've roped the RM into the same agreement. Is this an actual layoff strategy Deloitte uses?
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?
Any people here who joined on 28 March 2022? Are you guys mapped to projects or in bench?
