Asking this question here for a reason. In our culture and set up, a majority of the time is spent in cooking. We usually don’t eat microwave meals.

I took the interview with Delloite USI and cleared all rounds. After getting prehire mail I shared all requested documents but didn't hear from them after that even after follow-ups. After 2 months recruiter replied and told me that I am referred for post of technology analyst by interviewer though already an AC in Infosys. Anyone had any idea are they not aware of my position before they interviewed me and why they didn't share offer letter.
I got a $8,000 raise for year end and promotion, and no bonus. I just got written offer from other big 4 for 40k more then I am making at Deloitte.

For moms in California - can anyone explain to me how the FMLA/Paid Leave works in coordination with EY’s sixteen weeks? It seems that all the new moms take 6 months and I’m trying to figure out how that works if we’re only given 16 weeks.

TIA!

Kellogg (no money) vs. Darden (50% scholarship). At a boutique consulting firm now and trying to move to MBB. Which do I choose? I love both schools.
So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?
