Just finished this bench with my girlfriend. Started with an idea and managed to come through! Really pleased with the result. Still need to add some artwork/ plants for above. Any suggestions?
People on the bench like..
Took nearly two years, but I finally cracked a 1,000lb powerlift score yesterday (455lb deadlift, 325lb squat, and 225lb bench press).
To anyone looking to get into strength training later in life (39M here), I can’t recommend it enough. It can feel literally life changing.
How much time can a person stay on bench in HCL?
I'm losing my mind. I desperately want to roll off my project, I hate it, gives me anxiety. But i signed a contract about a year and half ago to buy a new build home & won't be starting the underwriting process until the home is done some time in Sep. My lender/RE Agent said I can change jobs as long as I make the same or more. I can have a one month gap between jobs. As a senior analyst, 3 YOE overall, is it too risky to quit? I can't handle it anymore & i don't think I'll be able to roll off.
How do you deal with hostile PE client? Compete asshole and just outright doesn’t respect you or give you the benefit of the doubt? Should I ask to roll off?
On the bench, suggestions for where to travel?
Anyone else on the bench or project with very little work required or skills you’re developing? If so, what are you doing to learn or grow professionally? I can only play so much warzone......
How is bench policy in mphasis. I have heard that if you are more than one month on bench, you will not get salary till you are not assigned with any project. Is it true.
Sometimes I miss my Big4 life, I remember when I used to work 30hrs/wk on some bs PMO and the occasional 2 month bench time, where I can hide from staffing/BD and go travel the world..
Recently I joined nagarro and one project has blocked/reserved me with them. Now they will schedule interviews for different teams but still they’re asking to fill timesheet with bench code. Is it right or I should ask them to provide project code so that i can fill timesheet with it ?
at what point should you inform your project you’re wanting to roll-off? do you wait to secure a role on a different project? or do you inform them you’re looking to leave - so that you can inform potential projects when you’re actually coming available?
If you’re certain you will be rolled off from a project because of poor performance, would it be better to preemptively ask to roll off ahead of the news coming?
Need advice: 3.5 years experience in consulting - not been on the bench once and always received very good client feedback. Now its time for me to get promoted to Manager this summer, however all my peers (around 10) try as well. Most of these have been mostly on the bench or helping out on internal projects, so they got Partner visibility. I however, always away on projects, making money for the firm, don't get visibility. Ive been told, chances are low for my promotion. I feel betrayed.
Beach time taught me how un-purposeful my work is. All of the motivation and positivity I get is from validation coming from my team / leadership / client and never the work itself. And I realize this also may apply to the typical consulting exit roles. Time to clean my slate and start over I guess.

Time to vent... So far this year, 14 staff members have resigned from my district (myself included). I'm in a small, rural, K-12 district so there aren't many of us to begin with. In my 5 years here there have been 4 principals and another new one coming next year. Our board "doesn't know how to keep people here" yet they refuse to pay more when the pay is significantly higher in every district around us (also small districts.) It's a never ending cycle and I feel terrible for the kids.
Our 2 year old woke up with a swollen upper lip and below the nose. Pediatrician is not available today. Can we go to a general doctor instead?
