Deloitte PPMDs, I can't figure out why D would not just reduce the number of temporary visa workers under H1B program vs. firing 5% of its workforce that are probably mostly US citizens. As seen here, D got approved for 57,259 temporary visas. Please explain. https://news.bloomberglaw.com/daily-labor-report/deloitte-top-participant-in-h-1b-foreign-worker-program-by-far
Do you ever tip 20% or more for dine in?
Curious about the salary progression of others. How much did you make at age 20, 25, 30, and 35?
Parents in Consulting. How do you manage consulting hours (50+ hours) with children? What does your schedule look like?
McKinsey and Bain 🐠, do you feel like your firm values you? I really like consulting, but I’m considering a switch since BCG’s culture is somewhat toxic.
Has consulting lost its luster? Anyone notice the declining caliber of talent in consulting? …
New BCG pay bands: New Associates: 90->100K base (116-126K TC) New Consultants: 165->175K base (207-230K TC)
Is it ok to get personal in salary negotiations? For example, let the recruiter know that I’m a single parent supporting three young kids and two retired parents and I really need more money.
Why don't more (white collar) Americans take breaks in-between jobs? Like a month or two summer break. Is this mindset that you need to work all the time a vestige from back when people would work at the same company for 40 years until they die?
My head is spinning 😵💫 is this real?
I’m thinking about emigrating and renouncing my US citizenship. Which ex-US country is best for expats?
When I landed at the Newark airport and proceeded to Boston in 2005 I had just landed in this country with $ 325 in my pocket and was on a student visa. I racked up $ 100,000 in student loans over the next few years. Paid it all off by 2010 and today our net worth is $ 2.2 million projected to close at $ 6 million by the time I retire. Work hard. Stay humble. You can do anything in this country with capitalism and free enterprise.
Bravo Deloitte 🙌 Laid off a Senior and a year later, offer staff/intern position. Consulting or insulting🥴
My friends little sister is graduating undergrad and has an offer from Strategy& for $100k and McKinsey for $90k (pretty sure McK is going to bump soon). Im obviously biased to McK but want to show her other perspectives. Which one should she choose and why?? And and all feedback is welcomed!
Thoughts on this?
Just interviewed a potential resource (level 9 consultant) for a role on my project. Client was present and noticed the person was very likely being coached during the interview. My Sr Mgr and I...
I am proposing to leadership that our open requisitions have fully vaccinated requirements for all roles, so that we are hiring vaccinated people into the firm. Is this fair or would it affect talent acquisition negatively?
Pwc fishes, care to comment?
Everything is harder for an Indian immigrant. It was a battle to get picked in the H1-B visa “lottery”. I haven’t seen my family in 3 years because I can’t find a visa stamping appointment at the US consulate in India. Flight tickets to go to India in the month of December is $5000. Millions are waiting to get a visa and the government, that should serve its people, is creating more roadblocks for its citizens. How is this not being spoken about?
How does this sound?

On a project in NY. My SO wants to visit. Is it okay if I let her stay at my hotel room? I'll be busy during the day at client site and she can tour the city and we can get dinner at night?
Anyone have any idea of Altman Solon perks? Considering an offer there but don't know much about wlb, progression, culture and general perks (dinners etc)

I’ve dealt with leaders who are incompetent, lazy, backstabbing, and/or narcissistic. At least I’m much better paid than I was in my old job. Makes dealing with this shit a lot easier
