If you worked 40 hours in a week then you finished your weekly obligation. However, that is very subjective up to your engagement management

like

Unless you were getting ahead for the next week but if you were just completing the weeks work the team probably won't let you do a flex day without being agreed upon in advance

like

You're not being "looked down upon" it's just that seniors (sometimes if there isn't someone checking in on them) and above can more easily manage their own schedule. If you really need a break ask the senior, but if I were your senior i wouldn't be happy to have to shift things around last minute if it's a busy time, you should have communicated in advance to try to lighten your load or get upfront expectations since some teams if they have you assigned if it overlaps with G&A will just expect to you to make up the hours. If things are light, then it should be ok. But otherwise working a few non busy season Saturday's especially going into your promotion year isn't abnormal. So at the end of the day - you can at least ask in a non-entitled way and see what happens, but set expectations low.

What staff level are you? Are you assigned on an engagement this coming week? If you're below senior and already assigned even if you try to take PTO if it's last minute it will look bad.

You're required to work 40 hr weeks non busy season at RSM (chargeable and admin together). You can work that any way you choose if it's 40 hrs over a two day period and all your work for that week is done I'd say go for it and take the rest of the week off and amortize the hours over the week.

You can with us. Work your 40 (S-S) and take the weekday of your choice off.

I'm staff 1 going into year 2. I don't think it should be looked down upon because I'm a staff. I work just as hard if not harder. And yes I'm assigned.

like

Just talk to your senior / manager. Some teams do flex

like

Agree with RSM1 and I'm in tax so we're not always on a set engagement. I'll work my 40 the way I choose in slower weeks and take whatever day I want off as long as I communicate it to my staff and supervisors

like

OP- while that may be the official policy at D, I've had people from manager to PPD tell me off the record that they are supportive of spreading your hours across the week. That's the whole point of working 4 10's during the summer and getting a Friday off, or flexing your schedule during the week due to other commitments.

like

Def take a day off. My seniors told me that if I hit 40 and I don't have any other work, just stay home. If I hit 40 and don't have anything to do, I always take it off and never have an issue

like

I don't flex multiple days in one week, but I might flex two fridays a month to play golf or work 36 and take a half day. As long as my work is done, I've got my hours in, and my team's approve, it is perfectly within policy.

I had to go to a conference during the week. So I did not work on the client. But worked monday through sunday.

You can always book other wbs codes that aren't client related to get you to 40. Also we do Sunday through Saturday but I'm sure you knew that

@Deloitte1 yes i know. I just want a day off because I am tired and need to take care of things at home without having to use my PTO. Everyone I have talked to seems to think if I worked on the weekend, then too bad.

@pwc2 i was selected to go to a conference out of state. It was mandatory. So I didnt work on the client specific work.

You cannot. Plz understand this is an exempt position so legally you just eat the shit.

PwC1 some people are just too harsh. Does pwc let you work your own hours as long as you do 40? I have been told than in audit and at deloitte you must work 8 a day even if you did 16 in one day, you cannot count it towards another day.

I've never had that option. Always been on greater than normal risk engagements and worked overtime except this last month and this month. And i get paid the same as all the other first years who worked normal hours.

I'm a Microsoft Dynamics and C# Developer at a Big 4 consulting firm. But... working with Dynamics for the last 5 or 6 years is starting to wear on me. The salary is great because there is a shortage of qualified Dynamics developers, but I want to do something else, even if that's just back to being a run of the mill C# Developer. Maybe this is more of a rant or I'm letting off steam, but has anybody on here ever essentially gone from a specialized type of roll to more general role?

Life / Career Advice: I applied to medical school since my MCAT score was set to expire, ended up getting into 1 program. I also have an opp to join a well funded/well established Healthtech Startup (6 figure salary w/ equity + benefits) as a BD professional.

I was offered a position at Deloitte for ~26k more than I’m making currently, but they told me that in 2.5 years when the contract is over I will be out of a job. Obviously I’ll be able to network within those two years and probably find something more permanent, so it’s very similar to gig work at BAH. I also just started a new project at BAH last month so I feel uneasy leaving after a month. Can someone at Deloitte give me more insight about PDM work at the company?

Both my husband and I have been remote since April 2020. We’re both very independent and do things alone here and there but I feel like working from home for so long has caused a bit of co-dependency. Recently, I’ve gone into the office a few times and I’ve noticed that I have a lot of anxiety about everything when I’m in the office - from work, the commute, my husband, how he’s doing, what he’s doing, etc. Has any one else dealt with this?
