Can anyone give me points on where to start if I want to build my own house in the suburbs of NYC within the next 2 years?

Narrow your search. There are two ways to build a new house... one is to get a net new plot of land, and the other is to find an existing house that you either plan to fully demolish, or potentially reuse the foundation. Start with the town(s) you think you want this to be. Then it's time to explore. Location will determine many things, like plumbing, sewage, electricity, connectivity, etc. The few folks I know that built spent a good year looking for the perfect spot. Once you've got a better idea of a town, you can start to work through more local resources to figure out what's available to buy, or if you potentially just want to buy something in terrible shape and tear it down to build up.

Hire a realtor, find land, find contractor.

I would work with someone local for all of these. Recommendations on the internet across the country won’t do much good. I would personally research local builders or realtors that have land listings / new construction experience.

What are the key components of your performance review process? The data points we currently use are manager and self scoring of a scorecard for each employee (scorecard outlines mission for the position, outcomes, and competencies) as well as peer feedback based on the competencies of the position (thought being a manager only has so much insight to a person’s day to day, especially in a matrix org). What am I missing?

Looks like a massive Exodus happened in Deloitte? Trying to staff a project and there is literally no one to staff with (at least Salesforce practice) and we are having to reach out to contractors. Is this a result of layoffs that happened last year and folks are purely unhappy with pay (not considering project pressure as that can vary/be subjective)? For folks who have been here for a long time, is this a common occurrence or is it especially bad this time around?
