I just want to know who has the longest stay in bench in accenture because so far I think I have the longest stay. I know of someone who had stayed for 10 months in bench.

I've never been deployed in bench. When i started with the company, I got deployed to a project right after orientation, while some got to bench. What are the things that you do in bench really? ^__^

I got to do alot of CBT's. Both technical and non-technical. I am also doing some "admin" tasks at bench. I also do some kind of technical support in my team. The thing you can do in bench is to think of ways so that you can be productive. The good thing in bench is that you don't get stressed or tired. You just get bored.

well, sometimes i get bored at the project too. lol! I think based on your story and other friends who've been "benched", we all just have the same tasks, except for project specific tasks. And also you're right..less hassle in bench. haha! Where are you located now? are you benched in Cybergate? I've a friend who's currently in bench right now (he's been there for 3 months. hehe)

i used to work for accenture (around 6 yrs ago) and i can't remember if there was a time that i stayed in bench and for how long. i just remember doing a lot of CBTs during my idle time.
