Has anyone rolled off a project due to poor leadership and mal intent from management? If so, how did you approach the topic?

Hello Everyone - Looking for advice from Deloitte practitioners! I am a specialist senior at Deloitte, got back from maternity leave in April 2020. I had my offering leader schedule a call with me to notify that I have been rated a low performer because I had 46% utilization and mediocre firm contribution scatterplot. My project scatterplots have been consistently good 5,5(top right) over the last 3 years. Do they not consider these things before rating someone as low? Feeling very low!

Making the move to PM. I’ve been in advertising 2.5 yrs, 1.5 as an AE. Currently making $58K in NYC. Am I in the right for a pay raise along with the Project Manager title? Or is $58K fair?

Had 25 hours and 1.5 weeks to write out a relatively simple design and review with the client. Decided to start it last night, drunk, and finished this morning. Design went great, client was really happy and we’re moving on to build. Spent a total of 2.5 hours doing it, and now I’m gonna go take a nap.

Has anyone ever had a senior manager blatantly lie about a client deadline? My SM made me believe the entire consolidated return was due much sooner, when in reality only the book to tax was?

I struggle building a network and have anxiety every time I'm on the bench. I reach out to people I know for BD help etc but it's never authentic or turns to projects. Any suggestions?

I'm on H1B and currently living in SF. I am trying to change my office to Texas or any income tax free state. Can I use any of these options? 1) I have a LCA for my previous client in Texas near Deloitte office. Would I just use this to change my office and physically be in SF? 2) I have LCA for my home. Can I change my office to Dallas and still work from home in SF? how long does a new LCA take to file when changing offices? Thanks in advance

Tired of fighting the regional model when the bench is neck deep. I wonder how many people are leaving because of this when they get their bonuses...

Client is paying money- I get it. But that money is not trickling down to me. So why should I feel guilty for not traveling on Sunday? Is it wrong to have a life? Managers and directors, talk back!!!

Do you tell people which firm you are going to on your way out? I'm going brand side, not a current firm client but could be in the future.

Do people really not get client exposure? Have read few posts of people saying they don't get client exposure. Heard this before going into consulting but have never experienced it. That would be sad.

How do companies usually get over (get used to) transitioning from home grown systems to cloud-native and SaaS solutions? Losing control of systems and ongoing cost (licensing cost can go up anytime) seems to be major mental blockers for my client
