It happened again. Five months after the president of KPMG UK told staff to stop complaining about working hours, Alexander Curry, the UK manager of Monitor Deloitte, sent an email saying his junior staff did not have their own. time.
Sent at the beginning of July, the email seen by eFinancialCareers starts off quite happily. “Now, I hope you know, I’m generally kind of an optimistic laissez-faire cove,” says Curry. “Today, however, I had some discussions with some of the younger members of the practice that made me rather cranky. Those I spoke to basically voiced the opinion that what they were doing. their time depended on them, based on their interests and preferences.
Curry then has a few suggestions on how to control your time: “Now if you want to do whatever you want to do, I suggest you become millionaires, writers, or bums. Failing that, I would like to point out the rules of the road for Planning. “
Deloitte has not yet responded to a request for comment. It is understood that reactions to the email have so far been ignored. “If you’re overworked and underpaid and you get an email like this, it’s not really motivating,” one insider said.
Curry joined Monitor in 2000 and became a partner at Monitor Deloitte in 2013 and UK Lead in June 2019.
