Signed an offer last year during the worst of the pandemic for a lower level than my peers. Been with the firm 5 months now. Looking for advice: Would you recommend leaving to get the level you deserve outside of the firm with short stint on resume, or sticking through it with the firm knowing promotion is not guaranteed in same timeframe?

Ohhhh I see thanks for clarifying. Similar to what others have suggested I would start interviewing and see if anything that really interests you pops up. Don’t feel like you owe your current firm anything.

Where did you come from before your current role? What level are you currently and what’s your goal, gain sound consulting experience or chase a title?

So you are saying the people who graduated from same class as you are at now Deloitte one level above you?

I would apply and interview around. But also what was the reason you took the position if it was a lower level?

Which health insurance plan do you recommend for pregnancy and maternity care? Looking for switching during current open enrollment . From the Deloitte sponsored plans, narrowed down to these 3 - Anthem Bluecard PPO, Aetna Select, UHC PPO. I am currently enrolled for Anthem Bluecard PPO and looking for other best options, if any. Also, if I get pregnant in December and switch to any other from Jan, will that works or the new insurance provider might raise a concern to cover the expenses? TIA!

Hello. I’m working on H1B and recently got a promotion. My company is amending my H1B and told me that since my new job is remote I can only work at my apartment (since it’s my legal location). Is there any chance they can figure out I’m working remotely from somewhere else? Also, I’m also in the process of applying for green card (thru employment). Does anyone know the timeline for this given my H1B is getting amended ? (My country has no waiting time).

They say people are leaving in droves, but in my office and practice no one leaves. I think we are just waiting to see who crumbles first in the hopes that those who stay will be awarded a promotion in April.

How to let a firm know comp expectations changed due to a raise at the current employer? Gave a firm a range and they offered me a base comp at the low end of my range. Not sure how I feel about this. Thoughts on this? Would expect them to meet me at least in the middle. Current comp is going to be very close to 90k at the end of the year. Initially gave a range of 95 - 110 (when my comp was still in the low 80s). They met me at 95. I have almost 2 YOE. Thanks!

Hi all. If you have ever encountered passive aggressive teammates, did you raise this situation to your direct report? If so, what was your approach and how did you deliver the feedback? This particular teammate is beginning to create a toxic work environment for me and I would like to diffuse this situation amicably, as performance reviews are near.

I’ve long disliked the term ethics. Definitions of ethics all refer to morals. Morals are very personal and vary a lot from person to person, culture to culture. Law is how we as a society express our preferences and impose rules and restrictions on ourselves. So the question should never be about whether companies can be ethical. What does that mean? One person thinks eating meat is unethical, another thinks it’s perfectly ethical. Companies should focus on complying with the law.
