Hi all - I'm looking for help defining our rating scale in terms of our company values. We rate on a 5-point scale of Unsatisfactory to Exceptional Performance. We rate against four company values and five competencies. It was easy to define the rating scale against the competencies, but I'm having a really hard time defining them for the values. I've tried Googling and everything I find is geared more toward competencies. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
If I were to be laid off, I'd stand to receive ~2400 / month for 26wks in unemployment if you don't include the CARES ACT increase. Really my only fixed expense is rent at 1350 + utilities. Immoral
Meetings and process are a brain boner shrinker. Seriously, I’d love to get advice from fellow strategists & creatives on how you manage to float above the noise and still think laterally? I just read Alchemy and totally agree with being experimental and thinking outside of reason. But when 75% of your day is formal meetings, frameworks and jargon it’s so easy to get sucked into expectation. Any tips?
Single people - rent/debt obligations aside, how much do your credit card statement(s) total each month? I’m at about ~$1400-$1600/mo. in a MCOL so not sure if that’s considered a lot or not, considering the vast majority of it is on food.

Ok so I've read or heard about layoffs recently from all big four except KPMG (obviously with the worst being at Deloitte and PwC and then some at EY in specific teams or sectors). Continued below:
Any first or second years that were laid off have any luck finding a new job? Curious what people are exiting to.

Hello Everyone I am a fresher and I have recently completed my MBA Finance from jamia hamdard. I am actively looking for a job since 4 months and could find any opening. I am looking for a job in Delhi region. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
New to flex travel. I can use my flex budget to fly someone in to my travel city right? If this person bought the ticket themselves already can I still expense it?
Any thoughts on firms that have a relaxed culture and provide good WLB, less than 50+ a week? I have a friend who is currently a director at a healthcare system who is looking to spend more time with family.
Tax question for you all. So I just received my stimulus and only got $95. At first I was confused because I made less than $60k salary for 2019 but remembered I did a Roth conversion end of December 2019 for around $25k. So it looks like they are counting that as income all for 2019 even though it is an accumulation of income from all my prior years of work. Is there anything I can do or do I just need to accept the $95 rather than the full $600?
Not to use a tired cliche, but this really has been an interesting year, especially work-wise. I worked on mostly healthcare and case studies. Very odd, but thankful for the work. How is everyone else out there doing/holding up? And it’s ok if you’re not. Is it just me or do things seemed be picking up?
Ideas for a foreign MD that came to US and instead of taking the STEP exams (3 yr), would look into other avenues? MBA is a possibility. Does life science practice at consulting firm sound feasible?
I am interviewing for a Senior Manager position at Accenture. I understand SM go straight to Managing Directors at ACN. Any advice on things to ask for so I can make sure I’m on the right trajectory to MD? Also, what should I be asking for — do they have a “partner track” or anything?

Roth 401k vs Roth IRA. Seems like everyone loves the Roth IRA but not much love given to the Roth 401k (which has no income limit). Why? Is it just bc an IRA allows investment in whatever you want compared to limited options in a 401k? I'm over the limit for IRA contributions and don't want to incur pro rata taxes on my traditional IRA gains with a backdoor. If I'm happy with my 401k options, any other reason I shouldn't just max my Roth 401k and be good with that?
Hoping to ask a few questions to anyone at Deloitte who works in the Insurance Operations vertical. If this is you - would really appreciate the opportunity to connect. Thanks!
