Depends on the service line. 5-6 months for some people I know in highly specialized fields such as Cyber Security or different Deloitte Digital areas. 4 weeks for some people I know in S&O before getting let go

No advisory analytics. He was cleared and very picky. It's a goddamn miracle he wasn't fired.

I know someone from Advisory in our cyber risk practice that was beachin' for 5 months, somehow didn't get canned

Long Post : I have a divorced female friend that I have known for over 15 years and consider as a sister. For the past couple weeks because I was on the bench and bored we talked about an hour+ often, especially when I am walking and need company. My wife went through my T mobile call history and mad because I'm talking to her too often and too long. She knows the friend as well and we all hangout on multiple occasions. Am I doing something wrong here? Or my wife is just insecure?

Anyone not looking forward to Black History Month? It’s has become so performative that I honestly ignore it.

Have an offer in the Bay that is 100k -- moving as a single late 30's male. No debt. Though I really like the job, I'm worried about the salary -- I keep hearing that's not enough money to have a decent standard of living. I would plan to get a car eventually and though I want a 1 bedroom, I'm not opposed to a roommate. First time I've had to rethink a great opportunity because the money was not enough -- can't tell if I'm being overly sensitive to other people's money needs or not?
