What are the signs of a selfish boyfriend?
Like seriously, how is one able to comfortably support themselves in the Bay Area on these new Analyst level salaries at Deloitte? It's not like we're doing anything different than Consultants and most Senior Consultants. TBH it's kind of insulting, and makes me want to get a second job for me to earn enough to live comfortably and save for retirement.

There is someone who has been stealing small things from our office. However, I know they are giving them to family members. I know a lot about the back story. I know it still isn't okay. I am really conflicted about what to do.
Recruiter said that due to office closure(holidays), I won't be getting the written offer until the new year. I was thinking of enjoying my holidays but now m stressed🤣.
Why does it take so long? Is it a complex internal process for drafting and approvals of offer letters?

To married couples or those with SO - does your partner have everything you’ve wanted in a partner? Also, what did they have at first that really attracted you to them?
Has anyone had a vaginal birth and had their doctor clear them after more than 6 weeks? My company pays 100% of maternity leave if for medical reasons, but the rest is unpaid. Wondering if there is any way I can get more than 6 weeks. After my last kid I didn’t even feel semi normal until 6 months, and I can’t imagine going back to work after 6 weeks. Going to talk to my doctor and not looking to game the system, just genuinely curious.
Someone I work with was not promoted, and works like a maniac. Instead others were bought in to groom into future leaders. I guess why would the boss do that. The person was really hard working and did all the admin for the account. He got angry and left the team. I question if I should remain on such a team. I did get promoted, but it seems fishy. I guess I don’t want to work and later be told I’m not going to move up the ladder. I just question it as the boss lost a work horse.
Best vit c and retinol? Want to change up skincare routine. Prefer something less expensive but also willing to pay $$ for a product that’s worth it.
I’m one of the only women on the team and also the only single person - sometimes I feel like I’m being judged/pitied because of it. Any tips to help deal?
I’m a manager on a new account. There is an acting manager that has been on the account for a few years. Any time I reach out to him for help he is so dismissive and looks for every opportunity to make me look bad. I can’t stand it. I heard he is rolling off this account in the future so I figured just avoid him
I constantly have to fight to be included in updates and meetings. Both managers and the other senior are men and they never fail to include each other. I’m so tired and discouraged.
Any good book recommendations? Both fiction or non-fiction/business/self development type books. Looking for reads for a long haul travel coming up. Open to anything!
I am currently on maternity leave. When I am back to work baby will be 6 month and it will be a busy season. Is it frowned upon if I leave early to see my baby and than work from home until late?
My bf and I are going on a trip to Paris and we agreed to splurge on a nice 5 star place for two nights and then Airbnb the other nights. Now after I researched and finally booked one he is upset with how expensive it is and wants me to cancel. I’m annoyed. Any suggestions? (Also this is also a trip for passing the bar exam).
broke the #1 rule of public accounting and fell in love with a coworker and now im miserable over a guy who has feelings for me as well but "can't reciprocate right now" because of personal issues. We're really close outside of any romantic interest and are each others emotional support at our office, and I keep getting more emotionally close to him because of it despite how fucking painful it is to be around him. really wish my brain could control my heart from putting me through this shit
Totally unrelated to accounting but I am considering buying a coffee machine (for my long hours in PA..) Have spent alot on my cappuccino now and need a cheaper fix. I can’t decide between pod coffee machine like Lavazza modo mio desea or semi auto machine like D’longhi Dedica which needs grounded coffee and will require some labour in making coffee. Is manual coffee machine worth the effort or go for pod? (Ps my kitchen doesn’t have space for full auto machine)

What do you ladies think about the Women Fast Forward campaigns and their focus on elite female athletes? I workout and play sports but can't relate to elite athletes and feel like we have such a diverse group of women at EY, I don't get why athleticism is so dominant in the campaign
How do you deal with a more experienced coworker taking credit for your work? She’s more experienced than I am so she’s been on boarding me, but my god. She’s just been throwing me work when she feels like it, brings up issues that I identified like she found it, and doesn’t really give me credit in front supervisors when we’re the same level.
Hello! I received an verbal offer for Deloitte USDC. Also received two other offers. I let my boss know and he came back with a retention bonus and plans to promote. I work in Industry. Would you take the counter or go to USDC? (I've heard positive things about USDC from chatting with ppl on here but also very negative.) Thx! Deloitte
