Deloitte HR folks was very much knowledgeable at the time I was there but again it was before they were better than Harvard. Sucks to see the company change so much in recent times based on what I hear and read here.

I think it’s just fewer int’l getting hired in audit so audit hr are all clueless. Maybe better for advisory and consulting sides

Thinking of getting a personal AMEX gold for the rewards and intro points. As the spending has to be significant to qualify for the 20,000 intro points and for it to make sense in general, has anyone else found that their credit score went down due to using AMEX as main spending card? I don’t really need a credit card per se and I just really wanna be able to accumulate points on my spending that I can use as miles/rewards… however not at the expense of my credit score!
