Hey guys , I’m new at Deloitte and consulting in general . I realized the staffing process is very very subjective based on your tenure at the firm, who likes you or doesn’t like you etc. I’m having a hard time getting staffed, and even though I hear how great I was I keep hearing how they picked someone else with more “Deloitte experience “. Did anyone experience this when they started consulting ? Getting really frustrating, and I’ve been on bench a month now.

Question: I joined EY around a month back. On bench still and nobody apart from HR has contacted me. I have found another offer in the meanwhile. They are prepared to give me a 50% hike on EY's package. Should I take it or wait? My friends say, frequent job hopping will affect my resume. Tbh, I spent 6years at my last organization and EY is my first switch. I'm unhappy so far and don't think its a right fit for me. Any advice? Should I wait or go? Or negotiate with HR in EY against this offer?

Anyone here have any ideas on how to handle sexism on the bench? I’m at my wits end in a case where my opposing counsel (white male and also a total jerk) is buddy-buddy with our presiding judge (also white male). In every single hearing, opposing counsel interrupts me every time I address the court, and the judge not only allows it, he never allows me to get back to my point. He also likes to hold all of these hearings as off record status conferences. Any strategies to fight this?
