Deloitte is that high school kid who was desperate to hang out at the cool kids table and nobody ever wanted to let him sit there, but he was a dick so nobody else liked him, either.

Meanwhile, Strategy& is sitting back and smirking - kids off to great roles at tech companies, HSW (or god forbid, the other M7 bschools), foundations, PE/VC without too much fuss. Business as usual - carry on.

TBH Deloitte is probably most like Notre Dame. The old saying is "How do you know someone went to ND? Cause they tell you." Same w Deloitte. And everyone who isn't them hates them cause they are so full of themselves. Mostly privileged white kids. NOT that any of this matters of course 😏

So i work at this company in coimbatore (india) and we have a very poor work life balance. We have a 6 day working policy and no vacation or sick leaves just 1 day casual leave a month. We usualy had to work around 10 to 12 hrs and no leaves even during govt holidays. How can i make them understand this is killing our personal life. I have already shared a couple of emails to hr and CFO of our company to no avail. Please advice on what should I do next

How do you deal with explaining why you want to leave your current job when personality conflict is one of the main reasons? Partner is just not a good person and does not seem to be able/want to refrain from verbally abusing people. I know conventionally people advise against mentioning it, but seems difficult and almost disingenuous to cite lack of opportunity or other reasons entirely. Any advice?
