I am a BTA, will soon be starting a new project. I have been rolled off of a project previously because the client thought I did not offer inputs (I did do a lot of work behind the scenes) contd...
Can anyone tell about what is Repurpose Bench BU. In offer it is mentioned that I am designated to repurpose bench BU as a software engineer.
What do y’all do while on the bench?
Accenture bench is deeeeep. Especially strategy.
Tips on protecting your mental health while staying on the bench? Worthlessness and anxiety are creeping in 😞
TFW you're on the bench for weeks, getting multiple calls per week from outside recruiters, but your own firm has nothing for you to do 🤔
Last day to roll off, my watch has ended. 🤘🏻
Experienced hire that just finished training with new company and currently on the bench. I’m based in a small office with minimal consulting folks - should I be going into the office?
On the bench for 9 weeks, starting on a new project next week and going on a 2 week vacation right after I join. Am I in danger of getting fired here? Had arranged the holiday 2 months ago and spend
I rolled off a project 3 months ago. They keep reaching out and asking me to help onboard new teammates to give them historical knowledge (it’s a long-term project). Do I have to keep doing this? Or does it get to a point where I can say I don’t have the time and there must be someone more recent who can help?
Very low since I recently got rolled off a project and been on bench for a bit. I don’t know if should start looking for other jobs.. Any words of wisdom for folks who went through a tough patch?
Does anyone else feel like it’s a bit slow at their firm right now or is it just mine? Apparently lots of people on the bench here...
Never been on the bench. Always been 90+% utilization rate. Can I just be on the bench so I can study for CPA 🤣😭
Friday thought - Being a new experience hire on the bench makes you question your intelligence, usefulness, and sanity
All these posts about people getting laid off are making me paranoid. I’ve been on the bench since the beginning of February and scheduled to start my maternity leave 4/28. 😬
Anyone interviewed at Facebook for any Analytics role or position? Any insight on technical/analytical interviews or in general any advice on how to prep for the interviews? Any help is welcomed
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.
Anyone from Databricks Professional services? Looking for info around hierarchy, WLB & total comp.
For those who exit to industry, do you find recruiters lowball? They often quote a salary based on YOE and their standard pay - often lower because their salary progression is slower. 4YOE at consulting you make $120k~$150k but they quote $100k because that’s how they pay their homegrown analysts. Nobody thus far thinks 4y at consulting is worth 5-6 YOE, I’ve even met someone who only match me to their 2-3 YOE analyst because they think their program is more prestigious and want to hold me back.
Damn. A gunman fired at Republican members of Congress. I don't care what your political stance is, things should never get violent.
There’s frequent commentary about leaving a company post-pandemic if that company expects a return to weekly travel. Did folks ever discuss a more purpose-driven travel expectation with clients and internal teams before covid? I’m just surprised that people make it sound like it’s either 100% travel or 100% WFH without regard for whatever needs to get accomplished or how it gets accomplished
Worried I won’t get promoted to senior manager this year since I’ll be taking maternity leave...
What are some Diversity & Inclusion strategies to implement in the workplace ? Additionally, if you are starting a D&I committee internally, what are some key factors to consider?
Office chair recommendations? Looking for something comfortable. My back has been hurting because of the cheap one I bought so looking into buying a good one now lol...
Happy Friday again Fish! Please DM me if you’re looking to make a switch to BCG and want a referral, there is a huge push for EHs right now. I’ve had several friends join who have been thrilled with the first few months, and several referrals currently in the interview process. I’m more than happy to help: - Connect you to friends who’ve come in as experienced hires from Various consulting firms (big 4, S&, ATK, etc.) - Hop on a call to discuss resume /behavioral prep - Share interview tips
Came from a developer background. What are some business books that can help me get better on the functional consulting side? Have nearly zero formal business education.
Would you leave an amazingly supportive group of people at big 4 to restart the hustle at another big 3?
Looking to get a laptop stand. Any recommendations? My laptop is the HP Zbook (10lbs). I want to raise it so it’s at the same level as my other monitors. Looking to spend less than $40.
Two R1 Zoom interviews - one went well and the other not so well. Think it was a good cop bad cop situation. Do they factor in both interviews 50-50?
Is there ever a benefit to telling your RL that you don’t see yourself staying long term? At the SM level and I’m really just over it. Trying to figure out how some people have navigated getting referred to openings at clients. We’re short staffed so don’t foresee them turning around and letting me go just by virtue of expressing this isn’t my long term plan. However, can see how it may ding future ratings so probably best to keep my mouth shut
🐠fam, I am 8K pqm away from United 1K, however I am no longer traveling for work this year. also I can’t travel internationally atm. Is it worth paying 900$ and taking a trip to Hawaii to secure 1K?
