In HR round of an interview, should we raise the issue of recent mass firings going on with companies? Would they be able to explain or give any kind of assurance regarding job security?

Yes you should. In every HR or managerial I do ask questions about job security. Once you ask these questions they will give more insight about the project or BU you are getting hired for. Which can help you decide which company to join at the end of notice period.

Thank you. This was very insightful

I would never trust an hr with that information. The entire job of recruiting hr revolves around convincing candidates to join the company. Even if you ask them, they are going to tell only good things so you accept and join the company. Mark my words, you’ll never see/meet the HR who recruited you once you join the company. So go ahead and accept the offer and do a proper research of recent layoffs that the company did. Again, do not trust anyone’s word for it, it’s only you who is accountable for the choice you make.

How's the promotion cycle in Deloitte USI? I have always felt it's biased. I joined DUSI in Feb 2019 as Analyst with 2.5YOE.

I'm asking my coach to propose my case in talent review for 2023 (actual milestone year is 2024). But my coach is saying leave it to God🤣. This seems very unfair.

Kpmg or other big 4 managers. I just started as a manager, and we’re allowed to expense a certain amount for our cell phone expenses. Would they approve the total amount I pay for month, even though some of it goes towards an actual phone (i pay 65 in total, 15 towards the iPhone under my contract, and 50 for the actual plan). The amount they’ll reimburse is much higher than 65.

hi fishes,
I have joined lti as a lateral.
After joining they have asked me to collect laptop from office. When i went, the laptop was not in a great condition and was refurbished. I am guessing it was used almost 3 to 4 years before me.

I asked them for a new laptop and they said they dont have new laptop in stock, i even checked with my manager she said she is also using refurbished laptop so no problem.

Anyone else faced this problem earlier?. If yes how did you act on it?
