What is the average salary of a Deloitte Human Capital consultant in the Northeast Region with 2 to 3 ratings?
At my 1st industry job. Another analyst starting the same time as I is annoying the heck out of me. He never shares information, and always just repeats what I said in group messages, emails, zoom meetings (and prompts me to go first). He even stalks my calendar and compares the schedule overlap with our manager’s to figure out my meetings and schedule🙃. He also pushed me under the bus (he didn’t do a task even though i reminded him, yet he said I didn’t do it either together). Just here to vent
Do companies like amazon, Google or msft allow you to propose changes to offer letter terms or clauses like non compete? I’m wondering if I should review the offer letter with my attorney. If they aren’t flexible, I don’t want to spend $$. It’s for a senior tpm role if it matters.

Moms, both husband and I are nearing the end of our parental leave. We live in a two bedroom in NYC. We are thinking of hiring a nanny.

We can move the changing table and pack n play in the living room, and the nanny and the baby can hang in the living room. Does this sound like a good plan?
Mamas - what are the most creative solutions to schooling you have seen for next year as alternatives? Is there something your school districts are doing that you think is creative and unique?

Is it normal to get basically zero feedback? Brand new associate working at a mid sized firm. Been there a few months now and firm is still WFH. I get a fairly consistent amount of work. But I send my work product off into the ether and typically hear nothing or very little back (even when I follow up). I’ve gotten same vague “good work” feedback but that’s about it. I’ve drafted memos to clients and some briefs that have been sent/submitted nearly verbatim, so I assume that’s a good sign.
Layoffs are coming
