Sad day for our friends down the street at McGarrah Jessee in Austin. Reports indicate 18 more let go today in their second wave of lay-offs. Some great and talented people are now available. Look aft…

A staffer just asked a few of us new ASOs which one of us would like to work on a new project, would require weekend work... does it really help your bonus/promotion to be "that guy"?

Saw this on LinkedIn this morning. I must admit at times I don’t get questioned by just men but women as well who don’t understand why I’m working tirelessly for equality. They either state it’s an uphill battle or “all in my head.” Has anyone been told that gender equality is a mirage? How did you handle the situation? No wrong answers!
Experienced hires - share your experience with learning the Deloitte way of working. What does it mean to you and what worked well how did you adopt?
How is your district implementing school reentry? How are you setting up your classrooms to meeting social distancing while still allowing for free play?

"Shoot" me an email. "Grab" us some time. "Jump" on a call. "Hit" me up. "Steal" a few minutes. Why is violence a part of everything in our culture, even corporate buzzterms? 😕
Anyone have planet fitness promo code/referral link? Trying to nail down zero down or some other benefit ! TIA
SM/D fish, what kind of opportunities are you finding/targeting (including comp)? I have been casually looking for almost two years but haven’t found anything so far. Looking at VP level role in my line of work at Fortune 500 but I’m starting to consider SD role too although some roles feel like it’s a bit of a step back. I really want to exit consulting this year but am a bit discouraged.
UK regulator told the Big 4 they have until 2024 to separate their audit practices. I wonder if this will impact separations in other countries or just the UK firms

Has anyone that was laid off landed at another Big 4 and are happier there? How did you explain the lay off during the process? At a loss on next steps, not sure if Big 4 is worth another shot.
Honestly, I don't know how anyone is staying in Big 4, even partners. I sense a lot of frustration from field partners at KPMG with the unprecedented turnover we are seeing and constant new initiatives. Wonder how many of them would quit if they didn't have huge loans and weren't tied up for years with the firm to get that huge pension?
Anyone else get interview fatigue? I find it hard to stay excited about a role after completing 5 interviews and having more in the pipeline
