As a new joiner to the firm, how many weeks of bench time are considered ok ? And when should I start looking outside ?
Hey Capgemini Consulting fish! How many people in Capgemini's US life sciences team? Any insights about their bench or pipeline would be really helpful. Many thanks!
how does your firm staff you on projects, and are there a lot of people on the bench at any given time? are people worried when they are on the bench? just want to know how it is for everyone else
One of the best thing of the job is you won't be stuck with the same people. I'm so glad I'll roll off soon and it's been so frustrating to deal with some ppl on my team.
Been on the bench for a week. Fml. Advice?
Has anyone ever put in their 2-week notice while on the bench and got let go prior because... no work?
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.
Need advice for resigning while on bench. I already have a start date with the new employer. Should I do a traditional two week notice or give <=1 week notice instead? My goal is to not burn bridges, but I also don’t want to get let go on the spot since I have nothing to “wrap up” besides HR tasks. I’ve read on here that sometimes they will let you go day of and pay you out for two weeks but I don’t see why any firm would do that for somebody not currently performing billable work...
If you’re on the bench and give your 2 weeks notice, is it more likely you’ll work the 2 weeks or just be told to leave that day?
I spend my days without showering, just eating junk food and watching puppy videos. What the bench has done to me..
Drafted 4th in 10 team .5 PPR. Bench is a little underwhelming, but solid starters. Went with upside bench players. Got offered Brady/Mixon for Allen/Robinson, but I think I like Robinson over Mixon even though Mixon is getting drafted higher, but let me know your thoughts.
Week 3 on the bench. What to do? I am working relentless BD with a manager I like and I have applied to all roles in region and done heavy networking. Anything I am missing or ways to staff smarter?
Holding all else constant, do you prefer two continuous weeks of bench time or 10 hours less work per week for 8 weeks
What is a Reasonable notice before being rolled off? Walked into work and they told me i’m rolled off as of tomorrow...
Experienced hire here who came in a level to low. I've been rolled off of 3 projects each after 6 months because I don't "look friendly and engaged". Work delivered no problem. Kinda double bitter
I’ve been on the same project for a year and am ready to move on. What are your best tips for initiating a roll off conversation?
Worst part of being on the bench is the feeling of dread you get when you get pinged on Lync "Hey do you have bandwidth to work on a deck? No charge code though!"
Flying for personal reasons this weekend and the Delta flights I have been on lack any sort of urgency to get us to the destination. Is this normal at Delta or during non-business hours in general?
While I like my job a lot, I think I am being underpaid compared to my peers. There is no transparency and in the US it is unpopular to discuss salary and bonus plans. How much do you earn a year?
One of my employees is the only one in the firm who knows how to use a critical piece of outdated software. I overheard them speaking about accepting a job interview. Should I get them to train another employee?

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
Does anyone know how people who already filed their AOS (i-485) will be affected by this? I'm vaccinated but my AOS was filed in March along with medical examination and I'm concerned this will delay the process even more :( Will we get RFEs after October 1st? https://www.natlawreview.com/article/cdc-issues-new-covid-19-vaccination-requirements-green-card-applicants
I’ve been feeling like my new project is super draining. I’m constantly working. Learning new things but my client team has some very difficult personalities. How do just not care as much?
Booked a Delta one ticket. Have all these goodies not sure what I can keep and what stays back. Can someone give me a crash course in staying classy in first class ?
Had 4 beers, 12 chicken wings, and a giant piece of cake. I'm going to sleep like a baby! And might have to go for an hour long tomorrow. But first things first, 💤
So I started at a new role at a known retailer about 2 months ago. I am their first hire in this role, as I have more than 5 years of relevant experience leading initiatives and optimizing process across departments. While I understand it takes time to adjust to the culture, its seems like all I have witnessed is resistance to change. I already feel myself not wanting to be here long, but I'm putting pressure on myself to not be a quitter. Would you stick it out or start looking?
Do I have less chance of being laid off as a senior or am I just as expendable as a first or second year
