Any fun holiday gift ideas for my SO of 3 years(gay man)? Nothing too expensive, but all ideas welcome! :)
NOT A CONFESSION! SEEKING ADVICE HERE I know therapy is useful. How do we get most out of our therapy sessions? How do we track or monitor the progress with therapy? (FYI - I have always been a nerdy kid pressurized by parents. I am finding it a little difficult to maintain and handle friendships. I have realized that dealing with emotions is important. My manager from previous company was toxic. I had a recent break up. My grandfather died last month. Recent events have taken a toll on me)
Ladies - how do you balance time at your SO’s family vs yours? Mine is closer and easier to get to (driving distance on East Coast), whereas his is on the West Coast and requires a week’s vacation to make worthwhile. Continued.
What do parents do if their child is choiced and don't want their child to go to school? Will they lose choice? We haven't heard what's going on in this part.
Got a job offer at Deloitte for manager level. Looking for a summary of benefits. I know 401k match but is there a waiting period, do you have something like pwc’s wealth builder. What is parental leave? What is the phone benefit? (Pwc subsidizes phone and pays plan). Health insurance I assume is crap but who is it through? Any random benefits that stick out to you that other firms might not have?
I go back tomorrow after a week's vacation. When is it expected I start catching up on email? Tonight? Tomorrow?
When you’re planning for PTO, do you ask your managers if it’ll be okay to take time off those dates or do you just give them kind of a heads up?
Last night I was looking through pictures on my phone. I was such a happy kid and young adult and even after joining the firm I’m at I was happy for 2ish years…..the past 4 have been awful and depressing though. Man I wish I could go back to that time and do things over.
We risk exposure and bringing it home to our families every time we walk into work, yet are limited to time off work without penalty. What's your sick leave policy?
Did anyone accept a job while pregnant? When did you tell your new employer and how did they react?
My pregnant wife's blood work came back indicating 1 in 250 chance of down syndrome. With out first it was 1 in 3000. We are freaking out. Has anyone been thru this what was your experience.
Suggestions for end of sept vacation in Algarve (Portugal)? Looking to hike/be outdoors as much as possible.
I want a holiday gift card from Deloitte 😢
I will never understand grown ups that don’t have children that still choose to vacation at Disney
Went in for a scan yesterday because I was having spotting and cramping at 12 weeks. The OB saw fluid behind the baby’s neck and is referring us to see a high risk doctor immediately. NIPT was negative. I’m panicking. Have any of you been through this?
CMV: noise canceling headphones are overrated. It blocks out the background noise and isolates annoying noises like baby crying...earplugs are far superior for traveling.
I’m frustrated that I’m always expected to do everything for our LO since I’m working from home. Five days a week, I do all the drop offs and pickups. When the baby is napping, I prep all her bottles and solids to pack with for daycare. Today, on top of everything else I had to take our dog to the vet. My husband hasn’t even offered to do anything because it’s easier for me to do it.
Need info on green card application process...have a birth certificate but it doesn’t have my full name, full father’s name. Its not practical for me to go to India and go through this process again..
I love the holiday pie 🥧
My little life hack for when I have to interview with the client to lead the next project, but I've only had 3h of sleep.
MBB 🐠: I’ve got 3yrs consulting experience at IBM (agile exp.), state school for undergrad, CSM and secret clearance. Do I have a shot at associate at MBB or do I absolutely need to pursue MBA first?
I feel like my classroom is really small. It’s an interior room, so there are no windows, which doesn’t help. I’m looking for suggestions that make my room feel larger and brighter. Thanks!
Deloitte S&O Managers - what's your base salary?
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
Best office chair?! I’m WFH until at least Jan 22 and I need to upgrade my desk chair. Suggestions? I know the Herman Miller is awesome but would love to spend less than $1k. Around $400ish

Hi, where or what types of companies should sophomores & juniors apply for next summer (2022) to recruit for IB the following summer (2023)? This summer BBs wrapped up SA IB recruitment, EBs even earlier, and a fair amount of my friends missed out big time. Also, if a sophomore or junior doesn’t get a finance-related summer internship (I.e tech) and aims for an IB SA or FT position, is it harder to break in? Appreciate any advice and insight, thank you.
My best friend is an immigrant. She has lived in the USA for ten years now and has a great career. However she says america is very lonely. Her fellow immigrant friends from different countries also say this. She says culture here is friendly but distant and ppl are too wrapped up in their home life and less so in their social life. She misses daily socializing that was a norm in her home country. I’ve lived here all my life so can’t judge but curious as to whether other immigrants here agree
