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"?

Try to build rapport with VPs / Directors / MDs where you can (esp the ones that are doing well in the group). As long as they think you are valuable, then that’s how you get well rated / paid / promoted. Try to get good projects vs just ones that make you work all the time.

Definitely helps

Stub bonus is same for everyone.

Think about what you will learn by taking on this new assignment and what value/impact you can bring to the table. Bonus/Promotion should not be your goal but rather the consequences of that, and even if not immediately - it will happen overtime once the learnings accumulated increases the value/impact you can bring to the table.

Coming back to D in October after LOA. During that LOA, I was approached by other firms, and received 3 offers. I do want to stay at D but if they cant match the offers I received, I will leave (offers include 30% increase and a promotion). How should I go about this? Do I contact my coach and let him know that I would like to stay but received different offers and I want to know if Deloitte can match them?

If you plan to leave your firm and your manager asks you why you're leaving, what do you say? I have a legitimate non-bridge-burning reason unrelated to comp or simply "big tech is better" reason.

But I'm not sure if I should bring this up. Should I just be vague and say "looking for a new chapter"?

It really bothers me that I'll never have the confidence men do, and I think this will impact my career. Things like self-promotion to the right people, being highly confident in my abilities (rather than focusing on risks and mitigations), and just naturally walking into every room like I belong. I know these are not only qualities of men and I can develop them too. I'm just frustrated & venting because it feels like I'm trying so hard just to achieve the same goals. Anyone relate? Any wisdom?
