Deloitters who have left for MBB or a big 4- did you get fired when you told your leadership? How did that work? Do you now answer “yes” when asked if you’ve ever been fired from a job?
WHY do big tech companies make the candidates write algorithms during interviews? I am a senior software engineer and I can say with surety that SSE rarely write algorithms unless you are working on building something totally unique (like a new search engine).
A client runs an outplacement firm. EY said the PPEDD separation list is imminent and that there will be broad cuts at all levels beginning in July to reflect past, current, and future business conditions. Other B4’s are expected as well.
ZS 🐠! I received an offer for the NY office and am leaning towards taking it. Any thoughts you can share about the culture, work life balance, etc? Ran out of time during interview to ask...
Anyone here know anything or someone who works at TCS (Tata Consulting Services)? Have an informational interview with them and don’t know anyone who has worked with them before
I'm a first year and just received a raise, even though I haven't been at the firm for a year yet. It's a great amount, and I'm so thankful. The partners told me in person but I'm just wondering if I should ask them to put it in writing, just to confirm it and in case anything happens down the road? If I learned anything as an attorney, it's to always have everything in writing lol
I'm not sure what to expect regarding a salary raise and bonus for a associate that recently complete their first year.

Looking to buy a new watch to celebrate a recent promotion. Stuck between the JLC Master Ultra Thin Moon and the JLC Reverso Classic and wanted to get the bowl’s opinions. For context, the other pieces I have right now are the Rolex Submariner Date 16610 and the Rolex Daytona Ceramic Black 116500ln. Also open to any alternatives!
When does the CSP 80k SOB promotion end?
Got to final round at McKinsey in January this year, didn't get an offer but got added to the Keep in Touch list, and the recruiter said I got good feedback but to wait a year before applying again. I started at Deloitte in October; if I decide to go for McKinsey again, is it weird to reach out again in January next year (having only worked for a few months at my current job), or should I go for it?
How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.

How do I leave GPS consulting to commercial industry or commercial consulting? Is MBA necessary or can you just apply and get in? Do commercial recruiters look down on GPS experience?
Are virtual therapy sessions as effective as in person? I’ve never been to therapy but want to work on my anger issues because they’re only becoming worse as the Stress from life and Covid become worse. Has anyone started therapy virtually through the pandemic?
Got staffed my first week in the firm, was expecting the overhiring to give me some quality beach time.
What should be the next certification that I should get? I have the CFE. I’m targeting the CFCS and the ACAMS as the next ones that I should get. Any thoughts on which one I should get 1st? Pros/Cons
PowerPoint gurus - I’m helping a client find short term help for an important presentation. Please DM me if you are good at storytelling and slide design. You will be compensated for this work. This will be a 3-4 day part-time engagement. I’m at a small tech focused firm, and don’t have in-house designers as yet. Plus I don’t want to spend hours building slides. Nothing illegal or fishy here. Thanks!
Finally found my exit to Google. Taking a step back in terms of responsibilities but going from 98K TC > 193K TC. Couldn’t be happier but hope I don’t get bored too quickly.
