At Deloitte you need to put in 30 days upon your return from maternity leave or else it’s possible they ask you repay for leave. You can start searching whenever but would recommend factoring that in.

Is that 30 business days or calendar days?

Alrighty folks, need to know if I’m being underpaid or not. This is my first role as a CD, but I have years of mgmt experience. I’ve been here 8 months. I have a team of 7 that roll up through the art director/associate art director consisting of senior and junior designers. They offered me 110k, with benefits costing 5k. I asked for 120k, they gave 115k to “offset the benefits”. I see that the median for CD’s is generally around 140k so I do feel underpaid. Anyone willing to share their salary?

Wow. Attending an update on Dobbs and how it relates to the employment landscape. Absolutely incredible what has happened to this country.

States contemplating disbarring attorneys, and throwing people in prison for this. What mess. And prohibiting interstate travel? Welcome to the Eastern Bloc 2022. Disgusting.
