Deloitte is giving 16 weeks of paid leave to employee (male and female) for birth of a child, immediate family care, and care if aging parents. Pretty nice benefit.
Trying to get pregnant but no luck. I think it’s the stress and the travel. Anyone else feel the same? It’s been a year now. I have one child already. How can you really plan this when we gone 75%

Ladies, I have a dilemma. I know the choice is ultimately mine, but I wanted some input. I met my current boyfriend through my cousin and he lives in Chicago. The plan was for me to move to Chicago in the next couple of months. I planned on just continuing my job with PwC. However, I was applying for jobs in NYC and just received and offer for a company I’ve always wanted to work for. I feel like I’m going to have to make a choice between my job and my relationship. What would you do?
Any experience applying for an I-539 to switch from an L1 to a tourist visa while still in the US? The embassy in my home country is closed for tourist visas so I’m worried once I leave I won’t be able to visit for years
Can't decide if this thinking is crazy or smart: Staying in consulting for another 1-1.5 years for good maternity healthcare benefits and smoother pathway to ramp off and back on work, with opportunity to extend leave further with limited professional risk (e.g., in corporate a backfill might become your permanent fill). Worried that this A.) could result in staying much longer than planned B.) would still ultimately result in crazy consulting hours and C.) wouldn't go as smoothly as idealized

I have a virual interview this week and first time interviewing during the pandemic. What's expected for attire; suit or business casual? TIA!

How do I prove to a non-developer boss that I'm a good developer? I'm underpaid but my last raise was a huge jump because I was an apprentice before so was making minimum wage. So I'm afraid to rush things, but I know my work is above average, just not sure how to demonstrate that (It's just me and one other guy on the dev team at my agency).
What’s a VP, Director? Interested in applying for a role with this title but I can’t tell if it’s equivalent to a traditional VP or if it’s equivalent to a Director.
Thoughts on weaning - my sweet baby is now 13.5 months and was down to nursing twice a day after she turned one. The last ~2 weeks she’s either been too distracted or too tired to nurse in the evening
Any guidelines on how long your resume should be when applying to industry or consulting firms? For e.g., for every x years, that’s an additional resume page.
Hi fishes I'm being constantly denied opportunities to grow and being targeted by a female manager for a rating discussion which happened a year ago . She is literally dropping allegations over me in managers meets which are false and some how my coach is also with her.

Thinking about getting into valuations. Anyone have any insights about this path in Big4 and in industry? Specifically I’m wondering: 1) what’s the scope of work like at Big 4? (Is the service line split into industry sector groups, or do some groups do Valuation for tangibles and another does intangibles) 2) how are the hours like? Working 9am - 3am consistently? 3) what exit opportunities exit after the Big 4 experience? 4) how does Compensationfor HCOL seniors/ manager look this year?
How do you manage breakfast when they eat it in class? I feel like my classroom is such a mess before it is even 9 a.m.
Hey all, when would you say is a good time to inform your direct manager of your upcoming parental leave? Wife is expecting but not sure when I should tell my boss so we can plan on transitioning / back filing before I’m out. Thoughts please?
Grateful for my support system. I burst into tears during a zoom call with a project leader today. He said the sweetest thing anyone ever said to me in years. A quick catch-up turned into a therapy session.
New SMs how was the bonus in your promotion year? Fixed promo + performance? What % of base?
Question for recent Deloitters and other consultants who work at consulting firms with job application forms like Taleo (a detailed form) Did anyone skip the non-required blanks and yet still get an interview/offer? For example, Deloitte application has non-required fields asking for supervisors from each job. I would like to put a note: “My supervisor does not know I am job searching; references available upon request should I be selected as a finalist candidate.” I worry that’ll look bad
Anyone have any insights on Accenture strategy? Market reputation? Work culture? How they play with the rest of Accenture?

What’s the best way to make use of company tuition reimbursement policy? I want to do a certification (already have pmp) like Apics CLTD or Scor-P. Which one is better or any other one I should consider?

What are some options for video conferencing with clients one-on-one now that zoom is out? See: https://techcrunch-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/techcrunch.com/2020/03/31/zoom-at-your-own-risk/amp/ I'm looking for secure free options and am considering jitsi, skype and Cisco webex.
it’s ridiculous that our worth is determined by reinvest and internal work. i cannot stand that consulting is dual sided with the client work during the day and proposal/product development at night! is it like this in industry jobs?
I’m in audit looking to be promoted to senior in July. Wondering if there’s any reason to stay at my firm for that promotion if my goal is to get away from auditing. Thinking I might end up in advisory or even pivot farther away from accounting in general. Does having that senior title on my resume matter?
Hiring @Trianz for mentioned positions. Please message me with the Role name and I will share the detailed job description. Thank you.
What’s a standard big 4 notice period - 2 weeks? I want to make sure no bridges are burned due to a short notice period.
As an incoming BTA at Deloitte with an assigned home office as Atlanta. Would it be out of line for me to ask to switch offices before my start date (July)? Thinking of asking to move to Chicago.
Checked in at a Sheraton on my bday tonight, but no HBD from the front desk. How many points?
