Organizing a firm holiday event that’s focused on getting accounts to give back and do some charity for the community. Y’all...leadership told me to budget food at $30k. You gotta be joking smh 🤦🏻‍♀️

I think you all are missing the point. OP is saying the firm is pouring $ into a holiday event instead of giving back. From what I know Deloitte has many corporate citizenship programs that address giving back. The holiday party is a good way to give back to the employees as high morale is best for the company and keeps people motivated thereby keeping performance high.

They should use that money to do dinner service for those people in needs , such as meals on wheels

How many people? Catered events costs are ridiculous. It’s like $7 a shrimp. Plus bar. I can see $30k going very fast. Leadership isn’t that off if they were going with a standard budget.

OP - Can you think of a way to leverage that $30k to make an even bigger impact for a cause (or causes)? Using the money to purchase very nice silent auction items or sponsor a raffle are examples. Take ~$15k and turn it into $30k for a good cause.

I had another idea while out on a run - what about holding a competition amongst accounts to see who can raise the most $$ for a given cause? The winning account gets a bomb a$$ prize or event paid out of the budget, and the winner is announced at the holiday party. That could generate >$30k in social impact if participation is high.

What did you think consulting was real work? Plan that party! 30k should be bomb, must be a ton of people

That’s legit wedding territory

I’m a 2nd year and effectively just ran a deal on my own with the partner.

Generally there is one or two mid levels above me, and I find it way harder to do my job when they are managing me. They like to keep me on the bench, get me to do minor tasks and don’t let me take responsibility and ownership.
