Deloitte 1 - def not looking to exit. Just want to educate myself on the opportunities that are typically in line for it. As far what I do, client wants to retire their old IT systems. As a team, we analyze current system, document and provide findings. Do the same for future state. Pass off to client leadership to make business decisions

I’m leaving a Manager role to take a Director one. They are finalizing the formal offer letter now. I want to leave my current team on good terms, not drop the ball on projects I’m leaving.

We agreed on compensation yesterday. Is asking for a Nov 1 start date pressing my luck/being a jerk or totally reasonable?

Hi fishes, Need one advice. My brother is Economics graduate. During lockdown due to covid, since both of us were at home, I taught him Salesforce, just for fun. Now he has grown to have an interest in the technology and wants to pursue a career on Salesforce. But all job posting I see, always ask for BTech, MTech and such degrees to apply for openings. Any company out there willing to take a Economics graduate based on knowledge only? Any other courses in INDIA, that may facilitate this?

Don’t know how to explain it yet, but I wanted to come here and vent. Anyone else experience this?

I’m sure this won’t come across well but I have to say it… my husband and I make good money (about $600k combined) and are grateful for it but these Biden tax increases are going to kill us.

Hi all, I'm considering moving to the US from Europe. I've got 2 years of mgmt consulting exp at MBB and operating exp at a startup, and a European passport.

I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.

Question for first-generation Blacks with immigrant parents. Do your parents or other family who was born in the home country consider you whatever nationality they are?

I've seen this with my own family and my other first gen Black friends often get this from their family too, so just wondering if this is a thing across the diaspora
