Hi, I joined Deloitte USI on November 8. I believe that I will be eligible for hike for June 2022 (on pro-rated basis). Can you please suggest how to go about raising a snapshot? Is snapshot mandatory to be eligible for hike? I see that the final snapshot deadline is Dec 10, but my project is just getting started now. Not sure how can I take this up with my project manager, looks too early to ask for such things. Please suggest.
I don't have a ton of experience under my belt working at many agencies (worked a long time at one) and I'm pivoting into an ACD role. Any tips or experiences from others that have not followed a traditional advertising path but are still killing it?

Hey googlers, quick question on offer expectations, I just completed the process for a GCP TAM role and out of the 4 interviews 3 went excellent but the one case study was okay, I wasn’t able to answer a couple of questions out of 6 properly. So 3 questions for you all: 1. Do we need to get a Hire/Leaning Hire for all interviews to make it to HC? 2. Does the Hiring Manager have a higher weightage on offer approval? 3. Can having one bad interview affect leveling directly? Google
I see many folks getting contacted by recruiters for roles at big companies (i.e FAANG, big 4, mbb etc). I never got those messages from recruiters on LinkedIn. What’s the secret to get recruiters reach out to you?
Is it normal to have your resume used to help with a proposal on a deal? I got an email about this. I’m assuming they want to use my resume to sell a deal but maybe not work on the project. It came from an MD. If someone could break down how this works, l would appreciate it.
How much are the hourly rates for the seasonal contractors at the B4 firms? Especially in tax. Thanks
Had a consultant complain that I focus too much on formatting and thinks we should stop at good enough when it’s a random meeting/not key deliverable. Two thoughts: 1. Is there such a thing as good enough? I view it as formatted correctly or not and EVERYTHING that makes it in front of the client matters 2. If formatted correctly from the beginning we wouldn’t spend much time coaching and discussing format In a nice way I said suck it up, it’s important. Am I being unreasonable?

I spend 2 hours a day being productive and the rest of the time watching Netflix/Hulu/etc or napping/eating. Have been doing this for 3 months now and I continue to get positive feedback from everyone. I can do this for another year (duration of my project) and no one will say anything. Had to get that off my chest. Life is so nice/on easy mode these days 😬
What does IndIvidual Contributor mean in Tech? I’ve been asked that a few times in interviews and still not sure what it means. Does it mean I’ll be in a void with no team just generating content and forcing it on people?
I left a holiday card with some $$ in an envelope in my apartment for the handyman who was coming to fix my dishwasher today. This is what I received when I got home tonight. I have to say that his handwriting is 10x better than mine…
Started a new job this week and it’s super strange meeting people virtually. Not sure if there’s another thread out there about this but does anyone have any tips? I’m waiting until a non holiday week to reach out to people for a quick chat, but it feels so not personable
New hire starting nov 29! Have a couple of questions: I need to travel for DStart and it starts at 11am on a Monday, could i drive or train in on Sunday night and book a hotel through Deloitte for two nights instead of one? And if I drive in how does Deloitte pay for mileage and do they pay for city parking? And how does expensing meals work? For example, the orientation ends on 5:30pm on Monday and 4pm on Tuesday can we expense dinners after orientation? Sorry for all the questions!
Left my desk for a little. My kid decided to cover for my meeting. He worked the group like a champ. Nobody noticed. I guess a 6 year old can do my job 😂
People Analytics Manager at Facebook (Meta) lists a requirement of 8+ years experience in HR Consulting.

Need some advice from the mamas here! Want to buy a baby gift for my step sister that’s a little more thoughtful or higher quality than what’s on the registry (most of it has been bought already anyway). I’m 26 though so I have no idea what’s actually useful for a new mom! Any ideas?
