How does Deloitte corporate Amex work? Am I expected to use it for all travel? Or can I book hotels etc on personal and expense them later. If it matters, I am joining FDD practice
What is the expected range for comp at L7 ? Have an offer and want to make sure what to expect in terms of negotiation.
Anyone else feel somewhat lost on what interests them long term in their career or if you’re even in the right realm of consulting? Any advice on how I can reflect and figure this out? Context - I applied for any open business analyst position in my city after graduating and ended up in healthcare consulting. I don’t love or hate it. I get the work done and I learn a lot about the healthcare industry but I’m not the most passionate about the work/industry either.
When I own my own hotel I'm going to...
Will I need a negative covid test to board a flight back to NY (LGA) ? Has anyone have flew into NYC recently & could tell me their experience? Thank you, for I will be in the MO this upcoming weekend. When I call their state center, it appears most testing sites are closed on Sat/Sun. (Please no snooty/rude comments, I haven’t traveled since March & been been staying at home expect for needed errands. This is not a leisure trip by any means. )
Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move. I’m considering Marina Del Rey as I want to be a bit closer to the office (in Venice) and the airport for when things open back up/travel resumes. I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂
What expense have you gotten away with
I'm a benefits director at a large company, and we're adding a fertility benefit starting Jan 1. It looks a lot like Deloitte's program (just noticing Deloitte a lot in this bowl), though ours will be slightly more generous with lifetime maxes. I'd love your feedback about what your employers do especially well or poorly, just to ensure we don't have huge blindspots as we roll it out from scratch. Honest feedback from people who are on this journey is appreciated!!

I have 60k in Cash (High Yield Savings and Checkings accounts). And 60k in Investment Accounts (401k, IRA,Taxable, Etc). Have 2 investment properties. I’m 25, should I be more diversified?

How do I answer “why are you leaving Deloitte” in an interview without trashing my current job? The truth is that Deloitte has low pay, uninteresting work, and extremely slow career progression with little opportunity to differentiate oneself from peers, so I am looking at other firms which don’t have those issues.
