Have an offer to go to pwc for a promotion but do personally like Deloitte more ... Can I tell someone in Talent at Deloitte and renegotiate?

The first break we’ve had from work since WFH-life began in March is a great time to reflect on everything that’s happened recently. Looking back, how would you describe your experience as a professional during Covid-19? What’s changed for you the most? What’s surprised you?
Any inspiring interactions with students that you'd like to share? I desperately need it! https://www.instagram.com/p/B5wV2ptodGe/

Placement people, don't stay late for no reason just to prove something. We could not care less. Make good work. Then go home.
Hi, I have offer from KPMG KGS and EY GDS, both are offering same compensation. The role is consultant in Data analytics and risk team. How will be the WLB, Growth opportunities, learning in both firms ? Any suggestions?
