Hi folks, New joiner!! I do see a lot of negative feedbacks on WLB in Deloitte.. as it is not my first Big4, I do see normal work culture and WLB which was in my prior Big4s. If I do compare it with Infy or other ITES than yes it is horrible here. There is a big difference in working hours and actual constructive work, people from consulting can relate it. One small thing if new joiners or D folks are so unhappy why they want be with the organisation..

As I prepared to file my notice, the partner of the firm called me and asked me to stay. They’re willing to promote me mid year in December and increase salary next year in August. The current offer I have gives 60% pay increase and Partner still can’t match that offer after promotion. Firm leadership says here I have potential to be a partner in 8 years and talk about all the leadership support I have rn which is fair. Is this one of their tactics to make me stay or should I just leave…
