Expecting a baby this summer. Should I still be looking for other job opportunities? EY has a very generous paternity leave if you’ve been with the firm for 1+ years, but not sure if I would have the same opportunity to take 2-3 months leave if I switch jobs. Can I potentially work parental leave into negotiations?

For those of you who have transferred offices, did you know anything about the office/clients/culture beforehand? In other words, how did you know it was going to be a good fit ? Or did you wing it
Question here - been at a new job for a bit and have discovered that the culture is extremely misogynistic. It’s been 6 months and I have had to go to HR twice. I want to leave, but don’t want to seem like a jumper - but then again, what does it say about a future employer if they judge me for leaving a bad work environment? Feeling conflicted. Thoughts ?
Anyone receive an offer & negotiate a start date months down the road to take advantage of a better maternity leave policy, or any other reason? Wondering how many months is reasonable to ask for.

2nd year associate here (going into my third). Will have about 114k in student loan debt at the turn of the year. I have roughly 60k in my investment account, 45k in 401k and an adequate balance in my emergency fund. I also contribute to my HSA and will cross the threshold for investing that in January. During 0% on student loans i have been using every spare dine to pay that down. My question is should that continue or should I tone that back and start investing more? Cont’d in comments...
Plan on moving to Dallas Texas next year. Currently with Deloitte MTS team and will be a senior at that time. Im wondering how the culture of the office is there? Also, how is the culture of the other firms. Im not opposed to moving firms. Just finished working three 80 hour weeks, so that would be a big plus to find a team where that is not expected on a regular basis!
Philosophical question (not trying to be political, just a genuine question I’ve been grappling with): do you think being pro-choice and pro-vax mandate are logically inconsistent? Both are sincere views of mine, but upon further reflection I haven’t been able to think of a way one position could be completely defended without undermining the other. Goes the other way for pro life/against vax mandates as well. The fact is, they just feel different to me, but I’m not sure why. Thoughts?
For folks who are applying this year (or applied last year), how many programs did you Target for R1? And how many for R2 and R3? Just trying to wrap my head around the process
I asked my CFO (given they have worked with many HR) - what do the best HR do? They said HR can stay out of the fray. What does that mean to you? And what are your best techniques to being effective while staying out of the fray?

Could the Deliotte interview process be more disconnected? Contacted for S&O, told them I’m tech/digital, nailed all the interviews & now they want me to interview with their digital practice? Ugh....
Worth applying for Apple Card if I’m planning to purchase a new ($1000+) iPhone? The 3% cash back and ACMI makes it tempting. I’d likely continue using it only for other Apple purchases and recurring Apple subscriptions though. Other cards to consider for that purchase? I already have AmEx Plat and Gold, and BoA Premium rewards
Any 🐠 at ATL Term B? Flight is delayed by more than 2 hours. So open to grab a drink if any fellow 🐠 fam members are around !!
I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?
Does anyone know if Deloitte covers any of the costs towards becoming a CFE for those of us on the PDM path? As in the ACFE membership cost, the cost of the study material, and/or the cost of the exam?
Should I take a 15% pay cut and leave Accenture for industry? Or wait it out to find a better paying opportunity? Worried about chargeability and layoffs, hate the process of getting staffed. Wondering if it's worth it though for such a big drop.
Recently i got an offer from HCL tech. The scheduled only one round of interview and then HR discussion happened and offered me around 45% from current package. My question is usually for experienced candidates there will be atleast 2 rounds of interview right? So after joining will they put me in bench and i will have to attend interviews there? Pls pour your views
@PwC wbs 8 code counts towards utilization target? Been 125% on the 8 for 3 months. Either I'm rocking it or it'll come to haunt me later on.
