How's the promotion cycle in Deloitte USI? I have always felt it's biased. I joined DUSI in Feb 2019 as Analyst with 2.5YOE. I got promoted to consultant in 2021 (they skipped my case in 2020 as I didn't have enough "Deloitte experience". Now I have a total of 5.5YOE. I'm asking my coach to propose my case in talent review for 2023 (actual milestone year is 2024). But my coach is saying leave it to God🤣. This seems very unfair. Also, the ones who joined in 2021 with 3YOE have their milestone😁

Negotiating with a pseudo-governmental entity and they are slow and SUPER messy with redlines. For example, they'll get angry if you accept language you proposed when they didn't raise any issue with it previously. Also, when they turn a draft, they'll only address 1/3 of the redlines in the document. Now the document is just a mess of deletions and restorations of the same language because I shouldn't accept things, apparently. I've never seen this before. Anyone have relevant experience?

I’ve been practicing for 6 years in-house at a media company (was a startup when I joined and is now more established), straight out of law school. Due to the small nature of our team (3 legal members), I have been involved in all areas of our business and even advise c-suite frequently about legal risks. I received a promotion, with another title bump on the horizon this year. I have an opportunity to go to a start-up media company as the sole attorney. Anyone else have experience doing this?

Change my mind: PLA leadership does not care about the PLA employees. I have more than 90% utilization for this year and at the end have received a paltry 3.75% comp raise.

Where is the transparency in the comp numbers that we asked for? We have just received lip service in return to these questions.

My company has given me a promotion without a raise. Any suggestions on how to deal with this? Little background: Asked for promotion in late 2020 - was required to skill up, after skilling up, asked again about when I'll be promoted and was denied because there is no "vacancy" for it. Got my annual hike in Oct 2021 without the promotion. I asked HR last week again and got a random announcement email saying my promotion is w.e.f Oct 2021. ( and no raise for the newly promoted role).
