@director as new hire ?

No, as manager after I was hired in from undergrad. I had a huge chunk of PTO in there which made it hard to get staffed.

9 months into firm life. 10 weeks on the bench. 😤 and that’s trying hard to get staffed.

2 months as a Business Analyst about a year into the firm. Was amazing! Had time to get into the best shape of my life. Deloitte has since ruined that for me.

2.5 months spring of my first year. Started to get brutal in there and wasn’t able to enjoy it as much as I didn’t have much experience to contrast. When I got 4 weeks my s2 year after a 2 year project it was glorious

2.5 Months

3 months, 225lbs 5 reps

3 weeks over 4 1/2 Years. 340 x 5 reps, or 225 x 32 reps

4 months, right when I started

2 days in 3 years. But there was a period before that when I was an analyst and was staffed 50% for several months. All remote work and hated life

While at PWC was being held for a priority project for 5 months that was due to sign “at any moment.” Was not allowed to pick up any other projects as I had “a particular set of skills.” I ended up resigning out of boredom and the fact I wasn’t going to hit my metrics which meant no bonus for the year

I have joned cognizant recently . After 3 weeks suddenly they stated that they will release me to bench . Now Its being 1 week no one contacted me from the team & also they have not released me to bench . Unable to understand the plan now 😅

Manager is saying my skillset is not uptomark for this project . They are expecting high productivity within a week .

My concern - if you are hiring an experienced professional through technical round then how they can claim like skillset not matching 😠

Sigh. I started at a T2 recently and I’m realizing that I don’t like it at all. I’m not motivated and anytime I hit the bench I get anxiety about the projects I’ll be put on that may not fit with my goals. I’m too new to take a leave and I honestly don’t have the energy to apply elsewhere & interview. Any thoughts? I was initially trying to make it to 1 year but I’m not hopeful about that…

Deloitte & BAH compete for the same work, and have overlapping or similar pay for similar backgrounds.

Yet the workload at D is higher, due partly to 'firm initiatives' - D is less efficient (more work to get similar result).

Ergo, firm initiatives are often not productive; also, D benches rather than furloughs people without billable work, and hires people to the bench (vs client). Granted, D does have more mobility laterally & vertically.

Is any of this wrong?
