Just hit the bench. All projects pinging me don't align to a single professional goal. I thought we were selling like hot cakes, but this is rough.
I’ve had two roles in a row confirm me and then un-confirm me right before flying out. I’ve been on the bench for six weeks and would take any project. Annoyed and just want to be staffed
People planning to join Fractal pls note that there are a lot of miss fits happening across projects driven by top. The project/skill set you are hired for might not be the same you will use in projects. So beware of this and in worst case be ready. This is fine for those you are willing to learn but those who want a set path might find it difficult. There is hiring slow down and hence the realignment of the current bench. Just an FYI.
How long can one be on the bench?
I recently got laid off from Deloitte where i was on bench for 5 months. I have been getting project outside but my practice management did not let me. And the reason for lay off is my benchtim
Never been on the bench. Always been 90+% utilization rate. Can I just be on the bench so I can study for CPA 🤣😭
Starting at Accenture in the CDP program as an experienced hire (<1 yoe) this summer. What will the first month look like? Is mandatory onboarding, bench, or immediate staffing more likely? Do I have any say in this? Thanks for any input :) Accenture
Hi Nagarrians, from 3 months i am on bench Not able to get projects . Should i quit here and start looking for opportunities outside?

Please guide me I am demotivated because of continuous rejections.
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.
What do you do when you’ve been recruited/hired to do Consulting work but are doing staff aug? How aggressive should I️ be on roll off? I️ know my worth and this is not it
I received 4 departure emails from Deloitte colleagues this week. What's your guess on why so many right now? Year end hr forms due, low bonuses predicted, huge bench, market is strong elsewhere, etc?
Previous Deloitte fish...anyone ever give 2 weeks notice on the bench? Will D just expedite and tell me I can turn in everything the day after?
Should I take 3 weeks of PTO from my AFS project for a trip to Thailand or roll off first and use the 3 weeks while on the beach?
If I initiate seperation from IBM while in the last few days in an account (End date in two weeks), what is the notice period ? Will it be immediately effective or will I be on bench for 1 month or 3 months with salary ?
Similarly, if I am already on bench and initiate seperation from IBM as I am not getting clients I want to join, will it be immediate effective or 1 month or 3 months with salary ?
As a first year consultant, do you find a project first and then inform your current team you want to roll off or do you tell them prior to search?
Not sure if them knowing I want to roll off while still being on the project will cause some problems. Still learning how to navigate the politics
Week 3 of bench. Finished up The Office, read Drunk Tank Pink, started a podcast, currently watching Always Sunny. In talks with two of our competitors to make a change.
How do you accommodate an onsite interview with potential employer when you are on a travel project? Work from home that week? 😞
What do you use and enjoy for grammar in upper elementary? I’d like something more natural than a workbook, but I like the structure of prescribed lessons!
I’ve built a strong pipeline of work with my current client, establish great rapport, and likely will continue to see more work being sold. But, I’m just over my current project and been on it far too long (running on 1.5 years). I think it’s time for another M to take over the team and I join a new project. I’m at the point where I’ve done all I can do. I feel as though I’m part of the client now, and that’s not why joined consulting. Would it look bad to ask and roll off?
I am constantly being hounded by senior manager and partner about a job that kicks off at the end of march and it’s only January. I have many pressing jobs to do before then. Anyone experience this?
Anyone else just get an "emergency" project that needs to be ready for review by 8am Friday? Oof.
