Do Deloitte project SMs/Partners/Directors know if one of their project staff is getting canned? Or is it a decision made purely by the office/region?

Happened on my last project, no project leadership knew the person was being canned. They intervened and got big PPD's involved and were able to reverse it. I hear this is super super rare since once HR makes a decision to fire someone it is 99% final

@DD1: What was the rationale for reversing it?

Hard to explain here without giving away too much info, but essentially the person had super low util because of some personal/family issues and hence got a low rating.

Dd1, so does HR decide who gets the boot or do the local PPDs.

HR unless a PPD sees you mess up and do something bad etc
