Deloitte Human Capital Consulting I am currently a student considering my options for careers. I have an internship lined up for Deloitte this summer in their Human Capital department . From what I can see it is a lot of workday implementation/other hr softwares. This is interesting to me. But I would also like the opportunity to be involved in talent strategy, compensation and benefits etc. But it seems like this really isn’t an option. Could someone please provide insight into this role.
Why do people want to work for UMM/MF? I feel likes it’s a rat race follow the heard mentality with little long term upside (you get paid a bunch for two years but then what?). I’m really keen to go the MM but feel like I’m making a mistake the way my friends talk about it…. In my mind a small younger growing fund is such a better opportunity — more learning, exposure, promotional potentially, and, hopefully, culture. What am I missing?
How interesting it is that the language ‘English’ restricted us to think what we can possibly think/experience/learn. I feel like because this language is so limited in words to understand our culture, it restricted several generations to learn beyond what we know today about our country and culture. I feel cheated 😭😞
Was told I’d only have one round (4 interviews), each split 50/50 on case/behavioral. This is for an Associate position and will be interviewing with AP/P/SP level. Is this typical? Since I see most people have multiple rounds.

Anyone here a US citizen who chose to leave in favor of London? I’m American but husband is European. He wants to return for the social culture of Europe but I just get traumatized by the pay in London and almost equally high cost of living as in tier 1 USA cities. I know money isn’t everything but hoping to hear about other Americans experiences . Thank you!
Any advice for explaining the risks of a situation without management thinking I’m weak or not being aggressively fighting for their position?
Why does everyone here just talk about anything and everything around gay culture/relationships etc. I feel like I'm visiting some dating app or social forum. Aren't we supposed to talk about giving support to fellow members by helping them with referrals or which organisation is best for LGBTQ community kinda discussions. Or we like Gossiping so doesn't matter 😅

What is your firm’s paternity leave policy?
As soon as my husband and I got engaged my mother in law flipped a switch. She went from being nice and sweet to bitchy and passive aggressive. It’s so awful dealing with her that I have to drink when I’m around her to deal. Anyone had a similar experience? She completely tainted my entire wedding with her behavior. It’s a losing battle to talk to my husband about it because he can’t help but decent her.
CMV: noise canceling headphones are overrated. It blocks out the background noise and isolates annoying noises like baby crying...earplugs are far superior for traveling.
What is the day to day like for a role in international corporate banking? Seems like they have different industry coverage groups such as fig, tmt, industrials, etc. How is pay and bonus?

In a predicament folks .. my new employer hired me into a full time role into the US but the immigration team has only done a TN for 10 months due to some administrative mistakes and now the paper work is done. I am working to see how i get this addressed as I cannot even sigh a lease for a 1 year place or lease a car if my status is under 1 year. I am confident they will renew me but it puts me in a jam. Any advice on this? Has anyone seen this?
