Looks like a massive Exodus happened in Deloitte? Trying to staff a project and there is literally no one to staff with (at least Salesforce practice) and we are having to reach out to contractors. Is this a result of layoffs that happened last year and folks are purely unhappy with pay (not considering project pressure as that can vary/be subjective)? For folks who have been here for a long time, is this a common occurrence or is it especially bad this time around?

Please see details below and tell me. what would you do if.... 🧑🏼‍🦽🐥 1- Currently working at upper tier public accounting firm as an experienced associate.🦂 2- End goal is to be a partner.🦋🦋🦋 3- Big four Deloitte had layoffs during pandemic?/EY has people oriented? 4- Small firm less hours?/ more money?/ no branding?

Currently with a Salesforce boutique prod and consulting firm as a Manager and make around $135k base with 5% bonus. Very good WLB and loyalty perks. 0% Travel. No layoffs at all. I got an offer from Deloitte for a Sr Consultant position with the base of 145k. Yet to negotiate. I have total 7 yoe. Is this the right move considering just $10k increase in pay? How much Deloitte brand matters for exit ops? I prefer good WLB if not great and prefer travel to be under 50%

I need help: In consulting interviews, is it a death sentence to have been part of the COVID-related layoffs at a Big 4 strategy arm? I have now been rejected from two other T2 strategy firms, and apparently the feedback is that “I have great experience” but they “are not moving forward with my candidacy”. I’m getting beaten down here. I have 10 years consulting experience, 7 at health plans, 5 in strategy, and 3 as a manager. I know my industry, function, and story. What am I missing?

I don't know about other Big 4's. But, - EY saved on earned leaves by directing no carry over - EY saved on virtual counselling sessions, virtual new promotions program and other virtual events - EY saved in electricity, water and other office consumable services - EY earned extra from Salary cuts - EY supplied zero WFH essentials - EY garnered extra profits and broke last year records So where the hell are the employee monetary profits? Feels like EY is mimicking PM cares fund. #PeanutBonus

Whyyy do I have a feeling that Deloitte is following EY with unlimited PTO? Leadership has been really pushing for everyone to take as much PTO as they can before EOY. I have a feeling that come fiscal year-end, they’re going to announce it so when additional layoffs come, they won’t have to pay out as much...

likehelpful

So apparently EY believes that moving to unlimited PTO will provide a first mover/differentiator advantage amongst the big 4.. I’d advise Deloitte, PWC, and KPMG folks to let EY stand alone on this one! None of us asked for this and they are doing it primarily to reduce PTO accrual liability for layoffs/in states where employers are limited in taking away earned PTO
