A lot of people are on bench. I got rolled off my project today, not due to poor performance but due to budget and timeline issues. I'm an Analyst, joined Oct 2021. I'm worried. Will they terminate me if I'm on bench for long? Please give me honest suggestions. Has this happened before. Deloitte USI hired a lot of people and is unable to give them projects. Will I get terminated?

Don’t understand why would a big 4 hire someone and not assign a project/client directly, instead have to go through the bench process and then wait to be assigned.

Thinking about flipping over to Deloitte. The account I’m in absolutely despises Deloitte and it seems like you’re viewed as a traitor if you move over. But I’m so tired of not being recognized and taken seriously and my pay is just depressing compared to my peers. It’s been 6 years with BAH and the past couple yrs have been bleak with constant contract losses and currently on the bench. I see the job opportunities and I feel like I’m a strong fit for some of the roles in my area.

Any fish on here that currently putting in notice: how are your firms handling if you have personal possessions still in the office? I have a filing cabinet in my home office where I keep a spare pair of heels and cardigan. Obviously didn’t expect to get a new job during quarantine or I would have taken these items home. Have firms made exceptions for you to go in the office and grab these items? Or offer that you can come back in a few months and pick up the possessions?

I got an offer from an product based organisation and package is almost among the market standards YOE:8 Tech: Data engineer. Offered CTC: 40lpa. Current ctc: 19lpa. But my expectations was 32lpa. So I am satisfied with the offer and role. Now my question is do I still need to look for other opportunities or stick to this one.
