We’re mainly consulting so not much can really be sent overseas as it’s not repetitive work. Partners are in the process of putting out recs, just in my office we are currently 4 directors, 5 managers 2 seniors 3 associates... the turnover has killed us

PwC 1 sadly we’re a specialized group so we don’t often have the ability to pull from other areas, everytime I reach out to our deployment team I don’t even receive a response even with a partner cc’d

Offshore resources?

Good luck! Hope things turn around soon then

Thanks! Just counting down the minutes until we get some new hires

Manager OP look at Glass Door for new opportunities. Really it’s just a job. If it’s causing you so much stress take control and look outside for something more fulfilling.
