I received very little advice and it was basically sink or swim, but I will say this...

If you're coming from industry this place is like no other place you've seen. This means that homegrowns have no idea what things are like outside of these walls and it will be frustrating at times. Just be patient. Active listening goes a long way. And figure out business chemistry ASAP before you get a lecture on "Deloitte Nice." Good luck!

Simply how to engage others and influence them to achieve the common goal. Lots of different personalities here and business chemistry has helped me manage things both upward and downward.

I joined D almost 2 years ago with 15 years of experience in the industry...and now when I am leading projects with other new industry hires I can see how much people push back without offering an alternative solution, which makes it hard to get anything done. So my advice is - stop and think before saying “no this will not work or no it can’t be done”. Rationalize a bit, come up with an alternative solution first and then say your piece...! If you don’t know how then ask for help

Hello Fishes,

So give it now only! But still 40days left what if they start looking for my replacement?
Pls help 🙏
