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’ve had a serious medical issue with episodes of debilitating pain and I’m finally going to be getting treatment soon. This has given me a WHOLE new level of respect for everyone with invisible chronic conditions! No real confession, I guess, but🤞🏼my treatment works and that anyone else suffering turns the corner soon, too!
Anyone with a black belt? ASQ vs IASSC? For ASQ, how did you submit project work as a project since the work is confidential?
Do you use all of your sick time? Does your sick time roll over? I looked at my absence balances, and I’ve hardly used any sick time. (Honestly because it’s usually more work to take a sick day.)
Can anyone recommend a paying agent that will work with a crypto company? Client is trying to distribute cash (not crypto) to shareholders, but having a hard time finding a firm that is able to / will do it.
Hi bowl, I'm not okay today. I woke up feeling off, then my project told us that my workstream is ending this coming Friday. I feel like an after thought, I feel so anxious and so tired. I know I should eat today but I just want to lay down in bed and disappear. I'm sorry for this post, I just needed to write this and cry as I do it.

What’s the worst reaction you have seen a client have to typos or syntactical errors in work product? Everyone loves to say “typos are all clients see”, “perfection is part of the job” etc. But have you actually experienced really negative client reactions based on typos? Honestly asking. I’m a 5th year and while I’ve definitely seen clients notice typos, the only time I ever saw one mad about it involved a startup founder who was predisposed to complain about everything for discounts
I dont necessarily fit in this bucket and wished I had known the information you all have at your fingertips. I believe my picture would be totally different. I'm 60+ and will retire in the next yr. I think it is great that you all are doing well even for the perceived late starters. I started seriously saving in my early 50s. Over that time I have 2 mortgages no other debt and a nice nest egg. Curious though, how are you all going to cover medical in early retirement?
So sick of working hard to please the people above me and in turn they couldn’t care less about me or my wellbeing. Once busy season is over, I’m out. Can’t do another busy season.

Level of interest in midterms is 73% among seniors, 35% among young voters. If you’re sick of the country being run by old people scared of immigrants and “socialism,” be a voter. Make a plan NOW.
I don't think ppl would care as much about non vaxxed if they would just wear their damn masks and socially distance. One of my best friends is unvaxxed because of extreme fear of needles/medical stuff and i have no qualms w him bcos he masks, distances, is honest about his status if someone asks, and isn't trying to turn it into martyrdom
Hope everyone had a good start of the week! I have a quick question regarding MBB referal. I’ve been working for almost a year at a life sciences consulting firm with a PhD in STEM. Recently I've been considering to move to MBB due to project types, team dynamics, client interaction, etc. I've talked to friends in McKinsey and bcg (former case partners), they are very willing to refer me but they are relative new. And they recommend me to network with partners to get better chance.
Anybody know anyone who has moved from consulting into medical sales (equipment, pharmaceuticals, etc.)?
Serious question for creatives at WK - I respect the agency’s work so much so hope this comes across as honest curiosity. WHY is every Nike ad a montage now? The magic isnt the same. Is this a client demand so they cam squeeze 15 sports in there?

Does contributing to 401k beyond the match make sense? You can’t touch it until you’re 59.5. If i were to invest on my own in various etfs Ill pay the 22% tax upfront and then cap gains would be 15% when i sell. I’d have freedom to use that money to invest in real estate. when i pull my yearly salary out in retirement I’d Atleast be in the 22% bracket if not higher. Since the last 3 dem presidents have increased spending like crazy i expect massive tax hikes in the future. Am i wrong?

Hey fam. Appreciate your inputs on this: I used to be a software developer and currently work as a tech risk consultant (CISA, CRISC certified). Have completed a couple of cyber courses but do not have prior cyber experience. Most cyber sec job postings require prior experience in cloud, aws, devops etc. Applied to a couple of roles but no avail. A) Can I start a career in cyber security without prior experience? B) Will CISSP or relevant cyber certifications help?
How many woman are still regularly wearing heels in the office? I’ve found that my office is much more casual than is was pre-covid but still need to look presentable. I am tall and in returning to my pre covid work wardrobe I’m realizing how much of my clothing I need to wear heels with - either because pants are too long or it just looks odd with flats. I feel weird walking around in heels when the other women are more casual. Should I stay in line with what others are wearing or are heels ok?
I really wish the big law firms in Canada were as transparent about their pay and bonus scales as what we are seeing in the US. Does any Canadian firm share bonus scales??
My firm has been WFH since March. Some attorneys started going back in to the office a few times per week. I don’t feel comfortable going back yet and to be honest I really enjoy WFH. It’s convenient, it saves time getting ready (I’m a woman so I save an hour in the morning not doing hair/makeup), commuting, lunch, etc. Once people are getting vaccinated and the partners start requiring us to come in to the office again, how do I express that I would prefer to continue WFH?
