Is it true Deloitte is getting away from it’s niche accounting roots and slowly but surely branding itself as a consulting firm first?

Deloitte has been a professional services/consulting firm first in terms of revenue for a while now

That is true, Deloitte was ready to spin consulting into Braxton but they were fortunate that their role in MCI WorldCom didn’t go the way of Andersen.

EY re-entered in about 2010 and ramped up hiring in 2012. They have been back in the space for over a decade and Parthenon was acquired in 2014.

EY and KPMG have taken a similar approach to reentry vs PWC that took a more deliberate approach across acquisition, hiring, and compensation. It’s not good or bad, it’s more about the level of risk and financial investment that their partnerships are willing to take.

On May 21, I had what I consider to be a great interview! I was told they were just starting the interview process. And advice on follow up emails so that I don’t get forgotten? Like how often or what to include?

Toddler toilet training: my daughter is 2.5 years old and we are late with toilet training with her. Any tips for toilet training? She just sits on the potty and doesn’t do anything. But as soon as we put on the diaper, she lets everything go. We have bought 3 different potty seats, no luck. Both of us are working professionals and a bit frustrated. Any ideas would be so welcome! Thanks

About rolling off my project with no new project opportunity yet.
