Any thoughts on creative department there, too? Specifically LA office...

LA has a problem head creative director. A real LA cliche jerk. Clients don’t like him.

Does Deloitte do a early promotion for staff with graduate degree? Most people I know in Deloitte who has a graduate degree (non MBA) working in audit got promoted to a senior before hitting 1 year anniversary.

Was hired into a company at a level that was more junior than my skills (Was out of work due to pandemic for a year). I’ve been at the company 5 months. We’re going through a reorg and my new position will really be leveraging my years of experience more so than other role. Is it appropriate to discuss a raise/adding senior to title? Or should I do the job and then prove myself then talk about raise. I have more experience than the senior members of my team.

Wondering what the Health Insurance benefits are at PWC and Deloitte. 1. What are the premium costs 2. Do they match HSA 3. What are the deductibles and Max Out of Pocket. I assume they have no co-pay option for doctors visits that kind of insurance seems to be a thing of the past… really appreciate any answers! Thanks everyone!

How is cognizant Salesforce practice for experienced hire? Is work culture good enough? How is job security?

Last min requests for proactive decks to show the client ‘we’re doing stuff’ that have to be worked on over the weekend only to be not used the following week are really getting to me. It’s a wonderful way to let employees know you don’t care about them while having mandatory meetings so the company can tell employees how much the agency cares about them.

I’m so sick of politics and people politicizing things that don’t need to be. This is the perfect time for a new political party to come out called the “I hate politics, let’s just” party (pun intended). Instead of blue or red it’ll be colorless. It’ll just include normal f-ing people who meet in the middle to agree on things and avoid drama. People will stop posting polarizing political posts with misinformation, and just post about normal things. Illegitimate news outlets will have less fuel.

How do you litigators do it? I’m a transactional attorney caught in the middle of a client’s litigation issues and this sucks. Parties are so headstrong, confrontational but at the same time won’t even speak to each other. Do you always expect to get paid? Some of these litigators’ bills seem extreme for no actual trial occurring. I’ve never been so pleased with my chosen path.

Need suggestions. I just found out a client (in house counsel) has breast cancer. She is an awesome strong woman who has been a great advocate for me, and I want to be there for her. Any ideas of things I can do to support her while she is undergoing treatment? My first thought is to sign her up for a door to door laundry service, but I would love suggestions.
