Did Deloitte truly go fully remote ?
Are you finding it easy or challenging to translate your "in person" lessons to an online format?
I’ve turned 27 years old today and my father doesn’t give a shit about it. We didn’t celebrate. He yelled at me for waking up too late (it was 11am and I live in my own apartment). My family is here just to visit. I come from an immigrant family FYI. It’s like we’re not allowed to have fun somehow and always focused on work and chores. I hate all this negativity… Been patient and trying to stay patient.
If layoffs were to happen in the industry, who does it usually affect first? Jr positions? CDs? Random positions?
Wasted 2 years and good health working at Deloitte, never getting strategy work. Now I'm too burned out to do MBB and will never be able to break into strategy. Fml 😤
My only decent bond that I have with my coworkers is the fact that we talk about points and loyalty programs bonus offerings.
What should you do when someone calls you out in front of client for not having done something yet, you message them privately that you don’t appreciate that, and then they gaslight you by saying that you’re too sensitive and it affects the working relationship?
What is everyone's company standard salary increase for promotion? Found out today mine is 12% and anything higher must be approved by a VP.
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
anyone in the Strategy & Corporate Finance practice at McKinsey & Company willing to talk about their experience? Types of projects, culture, etc
Any 🐠 with SOs in med school/residency? Feeling a lot more pressure now to not get laid off 😔. I’m happy to help support them in their journey to a meaningful career and know things are probably going to be fine in the long run (we’re pretty frugal). However, with the economy as it is and the sheer amount of student debt, just feels like a long road ahead and no idea how long it will take to ever pay off
Starting to require more engineering mentors and less consulting folks. Is this natural to feel like your the only one who wants to engineer things that add value to a project as a opposed to sticking to the status quo? I’m starting to feel more compelled to a pure software engineering role .. what should I do?
Is there a polite way to tell a past client that you don’t want to meet him for coffee? No longer involved in his type of work and frankly he creeps me out
Genuinely asking… Why is the media clamoring about COVID infection rates? I thought we only cared about infections because infections x A = hospitalization rate; and hospitalization rate x B = death rate However, in this wave both A and B have declined substantially given the vaccination rate. But the media doesn’t seem to be talking about it. The UK has the Delta wave a few weeks before us and is not seeing infection rates decline. Am I missing something? Genuinely asking.
Uncharacteristically high number of pissed off travelers today. Glad I'm WFH this week..
Wanted to share a revelation with my fellow high-stress fishies. I used to take work so seriously that I’d toil late hours into the night and miss out on valuable time living life. I almost took medical leave my health was deteriorating from stress! Now that I have a spouse in medicine, I hear about his work with pediatric cancer patients every day and it REALLY puts things into perspective. Just a reminder to show up, do good, and don’t sweat the small stuff. We aren’t that important 😉
The recent most billable hours post, inspired me. What is your longest billable day? Mine was 56 hours straight with no break—and the partner was more than a jerk when I was saying no more at the 30 hour point. That was two 24 hour billable days back to back on my time sheet and on the bill, a 360 hour month, and 650 aggregated for two months. And it is one reason (of so many reasons) why this job can suck so much! At least I got a good bonus...
