Hello Fishes, I have recently cleared the interviews in Deloitte USI. I had my salary negotiation, 9 days after the last interview. After this, suddenly I had received a mail asking me to submit my personal details on the Avature website, in which I am not able to log in. Reached out to HR, but not getting the link. The team who will release the OL told I need to submit those details, for them to generate and release my OL. Anubody facing this issue or having a suggestion for me?

2021 Headwinds and Tailwinds. What are the thoughts as the fiscal year closes out? I'm seeing 2021 as likely more punishing given the lack of visibility and the fact we may have diminished economic activity for 2 to 3 quarters. I have little visibility into how comp will be impacted but can only imagine lots of early retirement zoom parties. Thoughts?
