My girlfriend (in industry) applied for and got an internal offer for a higher level role at her current company (Sr Scrum Master, L11 —> L10) - but the offer is literally just 5% more than her current role, which seems ridiculous given the wage growth.

I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.

Did an exchange program gap year after college and landed in Deloitte GPS this fall, but thinking about trying to get into MBB because I don't want to do public sector long-term. When would be a good time to apply? Should I wait til I have 1 full year at Deloitte, or does it not matter that I only have a few months under my belt? Went to a target school and should be able to get a referral.
