They probably had a set budget at the beginning of the year and ran out

Commercial consulting ran out about 6 weeks ago.. If you email Big Firm, Small Feel, you'll get an auto-reply that says the fiscal year is out.

Adopt an Alum is a free lunch for you and an ex-Deloitte person, basically to keep them in the orbit of the firm. Culture Cash is literally just money they throw at SMs (in consulting) to have events with project teams or office groups to build culture.

Got the same email. Didn't take it that they are cutting it. Just that they allocated X million to it and it's all gone

Yes look up adopt an alum on d net

D2, an email went out about it. There is no budget for it for the remainder of the FY. It will resume in FY17, supposedly.

It's not that surprising since it's almost end of FY

How did they cut adopt an alum? What's the new budget

What is that program?

WTF I didn't get that email.... Maybe bc I'm advisory so our budget is dif?

D3, not buying it. Something bigger is going on. I'm watching my spending just in case.

@OP. Yes, it's called belt-tightening.

@D2, I also didn't get it and in Advisory. But I also don't know what Adopt an Alum or Culture Cash is.

Interesting! So, anyone in Advisory, do we have this?

Where do you access this info again? I want to search and find out.

For culture cash

I’ve always tried to set time aside at night or early AM, but email traffic stays steady until midnight, sometimes later.
