What are the best benefits at Deloitte?
What are benefits packages like outside the Big 4, particularly at MANGA (I guess that’s the new acronym with Meta), Salesforce, etc?

Ever since the pay-scale and bonus increases, has your firm pressured you to bill more? On at least 3 separate occasions, firm leadership has mentioned billing 2400-2600 and even said billing 2000 is not hard to do (even though we’re still in a pandemic). I can bill over 2k, but I find it strange that this is their messaging almost as if they can’t afford to keep up.
