Deloitte moms.. I am expecting a baby! Should we first avail short term disability leaves and only then maternity leave kick in? Do we have any other options?
Hi all, 3 years into MBB and job was taking the toll on me, and we were unable to get pregnant. I forced myself into an internal role to get some breathing space and therapy, and we ended up getting pregnant. But a few months in, I moved back to client facing and it has been absolutely difficult to spend time at home and keep my wife happy. She is expecting some quality time every day for a few hours, and I am just unable to do that. Its probably a combination of the job and also how I
People always say sue the company or owner. Is it that easy to sue someone? Especially around employment when people are getting laid off due to Covid. I think Deloitte or any big consulting firm it’s not easy to sue them, they are well protected
“Protestors” set fire to a building in Richmond, VA with a child inside. Then they intercepted the fire truck several blocks away to try to prevent them from responding. No one can support this behavior.
I’m done with this contrived stress. I want to run off to Buenos Aires for a few months. I want to sit in a cafe, enjoy a nice cold Quilmes and people watch. I wonder how cheap travel will be to Buenos Aires after Covid. Their economy is f’d right now
Which firms have the best maternity/paternity packages? Do any cover some of the cost of surrogacy? I have a medical condition that would make actually carrying a child dangerous, so wondering if some firms offer help in that area (I’ve heard of some covering IVF costs).
So I know it’s summer (well for most of us) but what are some classroom rules that have really worked for you? I know all kids are different but I’m looking for more kid friendly wording
Going to my first in-person local networking event since covid after work today. I’m worried I forgot how to be a human in public over the past 18 months. Used to be relatively good at working a room (for someone who codes) but it was a skill I worked at for years before the pandemic hit. Do y’all have any advice?

I’m in trading operations. I graduated during COVID and it has been my ultimate goal to become a trader. I know it’s insanely difficult to pivot from back office to trading but I would welcome any advice on making that transition.
So umm whose’s going to tell him? Also not surprised over half the people in this pic have caught COVID.
Has anyone else been told by parents in a conference that you wouldn’t understand because you’re not a parent?
Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?
Anyone dealt with a parent that has dementia and lives far away (too far to drive and visit)? They live with another family member so not alone. Is there anything that helps the condition? Advice?
A little embarrassing but F it! After 2 babies back to back please recommend some spandex-y or super control top panties to help with the fupa. My 2021 goal is to lose the baby weight (30 lbs) but I’m afraid the skin is so stretched out it will still be there. Tummy tuck/lipo is in the works—trust! And please don’t feed me any of those, you brought life into the world BS lines. Panty suggestions please (or solidarity to lmk I’m not alone standing in the mirror naked thinking WTF)!

Is there any chances I can get hear back from them??.. please give some insight YoE:9, salary confirmed: 16.5L. front end technology.
I have been unhappy about my current job for a bit now, been at the company for almost 10 years, and have started looking for a new job. I have a solid job offer on the table, but a newer PE group just reached out and are looking for a high level either VP or Director of retail sales (my specialty). I am more interested in this private equity group as I would get to build a whole team and really make a retail strategy but they are newer so I am unsure the stability. Thoughts on working for a PE?
Deloitte 🐠 Can you please tell, what is the cost for the health insurance for employee + family and what are the different coverage options (e.g. 80/90/100 % plans) ?
How are people dealing with burnout? I really loved my job (M&A, NYC). Now between the pandemic, zero respect for nights/weekends, constant 200+ hour months, oh and being a new mom - I just don’t see how I can live like this. The hard parts of BigLaw have gotten harder and all my ways of recharging are gone (travel, commiserating over beers, etc.) I’m dying and no end in sight.
I have cleared the TP1 & TP2 round of React JS interview in HCL. But there is no reply from the Hr department. I called HR & she told me that it is pending from CHRO i.e. They are waiting for Approval after that they will release the offer letter. Please help me fishy to clear my doubts. 1. How much times usually take to release the offer letter. 2. Is there be any other rounds after technical. Note - HR told me that there will be two rounds only.

Fellow PwCers. Are you on a firm health care plan, vision, dental, or legal plan. If for so, has it been valuable?

I know not everyone has the support of their parents like they'd want. My daughter came to me recently to tell me in tears that she wanted to be a tattoo artist because in the back of her head she thought I would be disappointed. She was wrong. She's following her heart to happiness and that is all a parent can hope for. So, if you haven't heard this from your parent and desperately want to... then listen...
I assert myself and take on a a team lead role but may be stepping on toes. I feel like that’s my natural personality so it’s authentic. Should I give a s**t about what others think? Or do my thing?
Quit my old firm, started my new one 4 weeks ago. On a understaffed first project acting as senior /manager with a difficult client. Thinking about quitting to go back to my old firm. Thoughts? Left on good terms/open door with my team offering a counter offer previously.

Want to buy property in / near NYC. I know with covid prices in the city (I’m assuming the 5 boroughs) went down, while prices outside of the city went up. Is that enough of a move in the market to make it worth it to buy in the city (and not in Long Island for example)?
