How long is it OP? If it's 8 weeks or less I would just go along with it and before it ends push hard to get on a project you do want to be on.

Hello Everyone - Looking for advice from Deloitte practitioners! I am a specialist senior at Deloitte, got back from maternity leave in April 2020. I had my offering leader schedule a call with me to notify that I have been rated a low performer because I had 46% utilization and mediocre firm contribution scatterplot. My project scatterplots have been consistently good 5,5(top right) over the last 3 years. Do they not consider these things before rating someone as low? Feeling very low!

Had 25 hours and 1.5 weeks to write out a relatively simple design and review with the client. Decided to start it last night, drunk, and finished this morning. Design went great, client was really happy and we’re moving on to build. Spent a total of 2.5 hours doing it, and now I’m gonna go take a nap.

Has anyone ever had a senior manager blatantly lie about a client deadline? My SM made me believe the entire consolidated return was due much sooner, when in reality only the book to tax was?

I'm on H1B and currently living in SF. I am trying to change my office to Texas or any income tax free state. Can I use any of these options? 1) I have a LCA for my previous client in Texas near Deloitte office. Would I just use this to change my office and physically be in SF? 2) I have LCA for my home. Can I change my office to Dallas and still work from home in SF? how long does a new LCA take to file when changing offices? Thanks in advance
