If a partner received some money from a candidate (say 100k) and got that candidate into Deloitte, is this a simple against code of conduct or this is a crime?

Yeah I’d say the parents kids thought this was a good investment. If the kid was smart they could calculate their own worth with excel

I was expecting more than $100K at Deloitte since Harvard's ongoing rate is north of $1 MM

Lmao, people are paying 100k to get into Deloitte 😂

Not sure it’s a crime but it can’t be ethical. Or maybe it is because it’s giving unfair advantage to a class of people that has more money?

LMAOOOO^

Of all the things you could do with a 100k, why would anyone want to be hired by Deloitte????

likefunnyhelpful

It’s an exchange for service/good that prevents fair competition and hurts the company. That is called bribing.

Lots of rich people give $1M+ contacts to McKinsey contingent on hiring their kid so not that surprised if someone gives $100K to get their kid hired by Deloitte

I just don’t understand people. Some one is willing to pay all that money to get into deloitte? Really? Deloitte?!? Why not go for MBB? If you’re going to bribe your way in, at least aim high. 🤦🏽‍♀️

If only it were a crime for the rich to have unfair advantages
A partner taking 100k to get somebody hired has other issues if it truly is a quid pro quo situation that fits the definition of a bribe. In general most informal situations like donations where quid pro quo is not clear may not fit the definition of a bribe even if unethical.

Interesting question. Definitely unethical, but a partner in a private company isn’t a public official. Not sure if bribery laws would apply

Happens with D1 football recruiting all the time. That’s how high performing teams are built.

not sure about 100k

Hi everyone,
I was hoping someone could give me some advice. I’ve been taking care of my extremely sick (literally on the verge of dying) dog. I work from home so it’s not too much of a nuisance but I feel distracted all day long and can hardly get anything done because I worry about my dog. I feel like I’d benefit from a day off or even half a day off but I’ve only been working for my firm for a month now, plus I have “discretionary time off.” Would it be okay for me to ask for a day off?

Hello All, I got interviewed by EY India GDS and HR informed me that I am selected and I will receive an offer letter soon and my salary is discussed. And I think many are waiting for an offer letter from EY. If you belong to this category please comment on how long does it take to receive an offer letter after you have compensation approval. Thanks in advance!!
