EY Bench / Let go policy How much duration an employee usually spends on the bench/ or the longest duration for which EY allows you to stay on the bench before letting you go? Does it fire?
Up at 4am due to anxiety from being on the bench for 2 months. Questioning what’s wrong with me and why I’m having such a difficult time getting staffed in comparison to my peers.
How’s the commercial bench at PwC?
Never been on the bench. Always been 90+% utilization rate. Can I just be on the bench so I can study for CPA 🤣😭
Would do a lot to get some bench time ....
So as manager how do you deal when half your team is on bench and can’t find any other opportunities. Do you just go with flow and watch them go?
When your office clearing the bench via 'managed attrition' but u 100% chargeable so u ain't trippin...⛷
4 weeks on the bench. Reached out to 15+ MDs and SMs to help with proposals and/or staffing opps. Radio silence. Guess no one needs help then.
What’s your worst roll off story?
PwC peeps: I have over 135% utilization. Has anybody used G&A code instead of the vacation code? Since I don't see that I'll be on the bench anytime soon and that 30% has to go somewhere. Tips, ideas?
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?
What do you do when you're on the bench?
I am going to India for H1b visa stamping. I have been on bench since October but I have been involved with firm initiatives and RFP work. If I am asked about client letter or LCA how should I answer?

Anybody have experience with Monta and Farer? I want to get a new watch soon to commemorate a new job/promotion. Looking at the monta atlas blue dial, also the Farer chrono-sport manual and Farer world time.
Been posting my more expensive watches here, but what do we think about this? Cannot afford the Double Red Sea Dweller lol, but this does a good job of giving me the feel of it. Robust and Good Movement though !! Thoughts?
Any chance of Deloitte upping the fitness reimbursement to $1k to follow KPMG and now EY’s lead?

If I have an offer from a competing B4 dated 6months ahead, do I need to notify when I accept/sign or that 6months later?
Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc
Was at an event recently. Seems like advertising really only cares about diversity as it applies to white women. I think this industry wants to stay white.
People need to realize how the world works, hedge funds will not be left holding the bag of trash. Money is king and shocker, they have more than us retail investors. This was an expensive lesson for many and not to gamble what they can’t afford to lose
I feel for all of those being laid off. Truly best of luck finding something. One thing I realized as a millennial in consulting is job security is non existent.
Thinking of hitting Arizona or Utah for some nature vacation for Labor day. Not exactly an avid hiker but I am pretty much in shape, so can take some beating. Any recommendations? Heard Havasu contd..
Got below offer - Product Manager in Tech - 180k base, 10% bonus, 160k RSU (vested 4 years), Should I take this or wait to hear back from FAANG ? Thoughts?
I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting). Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued
