Help Needed:

People who have recently joined PwC and have not got project are filling 8hrs against Bench code?
Or they are filling it falsely with some other codes like L&D etc. as well?

What if I keep filling 8hrs against Bench till I get project? Will it have any negative impact?
How to smartly fill this time ?

First time I have seen these many codes for a single day in an organization. Otherwise companies have only project code or Bench that's it.

Ask your manager

I have not been allocated to project.. Joined in december.

Don't charge false hours on any codes. Check with your Coach / RL/ TL or your peers

No any other codes....Just bench code and L&D(trainings) code.
Yes, Confirmed with one or two, they are charging mix of both.

Ok 👍

There are lot of trainings which you have to complete so do that and fill the time for the same

Which one is the bench code by the way ? The one that says 'Available' ?

No,there is a separate code for bench
(Search "bench time")

How do you handle when someone briefs your direct report into a new project without talking to you? Person who did it is senior to me but we have the same manager so we are sort of peers. The project makes sense for my direct report but I feel undermined and disrespected for not being consulted. Am I being too sensitive? I don’t want to seem petty but I would never bypass one of my peers like this unless something was time sensitive - even then, I’d send a courtesy note as a heads up.

I had my first thoughts of ending it all on Monday (I won't act on it,but the fact that I thought it is concerning)

Need help with landlord threatening eviction. We moved into a NJ condo last summer. 1yr lease, right to renew, agent said landlord would prefer longer but fine with 1 year. We sign and make arrangements to move in. The agent then asks us to sign a rider that says we can’t renew after 1 year after all, because the HOA banned renting a few months earlier. We refuse to sign and after landlord first threatens to parade “buyers” through the house all year, he backs off. (Cont.)
