I'm in CBS and my raise was a joke. Didn't even get cost of living... losing money by working here. And my dials were above my peers in all areas except one where it was equal to, and my feedback comments were positive. There is so much favortism in my group that it's disturbing. I'll be out of here by spring

Client serving side does generate the profits so makes sense their raises are higher than non-client serving employees

Woah since June? If I have a 4 month off and can still keep a full year of payment, I’ll be happy to take any kind of positive percentage as raise

Oh congrats! I do think working hours is a key factor built into the raise metrics though so I still think it’s a fair shot

You only missed one month of the fiscal year. It shouldn't impact it too much

Try doing that without business development. My job is directly related to pursuit wins that drive engagements.

Ey2 - I'm here 20 years in CBS and got a below cost of living raise despite dials above peers, terrific written feedback and I was told I'm in the middle of my pay band. Complete joke.

I'm on H1B and currently living in SF. I am trying to change my office to Texas or any income tax free state. Can I use any of these options? 1) I have a LCA for my previous client in Texas near Deloitte office. Would I just use this to change my office and physically be in SF? 2) I have LCA for my home. Can I change my office to Dallas and still work from home in SF? how long does a new LCA take to file when changing offices? Thanks in advance

So what would you do if the client told you they hate the manager on the job? They think he's incompetent and over-charges on out-of-scope work because of his lack of knowledge and inefficiency.

I was sexually harassed and experienced pretty blatant racism on a previous project. I was too mentally exhausted/anxious then to take this to HR. I have somewhat recovered from the experience but still have some reservations about going to HR with names and my situation. I have everything documented but I’m afraid it’ll tarnish my reputation, I won’t receive enough support and people (perpetrators) will be let go during this pandemic. Not sure why I’m still empathetic. Advice?
