Ladies how do you manage your relationship when your spouse holds you to what you promised you would do before you got married but then you realize you can’t do it. I had promised my husband I would fast with him for an entire day on a specific religious holiday, but when I did for the first time I had stomach pains, headache, and nausea. I told him I can’t do it for that long again but he said “we’ll see, you just need to push through”.

People who left accenture in recent times, how much PTO does accenture pay out? Is it limited with the 240 or 200 hours cap? Or is all paid out in full?
Ladies, do you share your PTO plans w/ your coworkers? My scenario: Joined a new company in May and I'm taking my 1st PTO (1wk). I normally keep my plans to myself (as my coworkers aren't my friends), but since I'm relatively new and never met my colleagues in-person (due to covid) I'm wondering if I'll seem standoffish.
Have 12 days of PTO left for the year and have already taken plenty of staycations. Assuming all precautions are taken, is it still heavily frowned upon to take a flight somewhere outdoorsy?
What firms have unlimited PTO?
Does Pennsylvania require companies to pay out unused PTO? I can’t find any wording regarding that in my contract.

I haven’t worked with a therapist before but know I’m totally burnt out and need some time off from work. Has anyone successfully started a relationship with a therapist and gotten their support to do an LOA shortly after starting with them? I’m worried because I don’t have a long standing relationship with a therapist, they’ll be resistant to supporting this. Would appreciate any advice

Hi ladies, I had my manager thank one of my coworkers (male) for setting me up for success in one project where he did nothing about.

I have my 1:1 with my manager tomorrow and will bring this up, but any advice how to best address this? I don’t want him to make this a “oh this is how you feel” thing- thanks

My firm conducted an anonymous survey about a range of topics including compensation, outlook, satisfaction, etc… turns out they were able to track it back to specific offices and levels within those as well. Doesn’t that ruin the whole point of anonymous if you’re part of a small office?
Was contacted by a headhunter a few weeks ago and just had 3 rounds of interviews w/ a PE firm a week ago. New to this space and the recruiting process, but assuming radio silence for ~4 days means no dice?
A PE headhunter reached out to me on LinkedIn for a MM fund. I don't intend to leave McK just yet but wanna know more about the position. How do these first convos with headhunters go? Should I even take it if in all likelihood, I don't intend to leave

Has anyone transitioned from Deloitte to McKinsey as a non-MBA masters? How did you make the transition? How is the culture different? What are the pros/cons?
It’s my fifth month in a new team (lateral transfer from another team where I was an analyst for 18 months). I just learned I didn’t make the cut for promotion (case put forward and rejected, I am told, due to cap on total promotions). However, I’m thinking of applying for associate roles in the area I’m in right now (I love the work I do), at other firms. Would it be a red flag if you saw such a candidate’s resume? I.e. someone willing to jump ship in a few months? I just truly believe that I
