How do I give my two week notice? Through initiating resignation on DNet? I’m also going to be away on vacation until 1.5 weeks before...
Can anyone tell me if there is Christmas holiday of 1 week in EY GDS for all employees? I'll be joining soon and I'm planning for a Christmas vacation.
Does anyone else feel as though they ought to either (1) quit your job or (2) cry when senior folks in your department boast somehow (or complain) they’ve not taken a week+ long vacation in two years?
I put out a vacation notice 2 weeks ago for a week in december. Since then Ive gotten staffed in new deals thats been very busy. Can I still take my vacation? Im so burnt out..

I need a vacation 😩
“So we’ve cut their pay, axed most of their friends, what’s next?” “Ohhh ohhh, their PTO, but make it seem like it’s a good thing”
Notice etiquete question. If you give your 2 weeks’ notice on a Monday, is your last day a Monday (2 weeks later) or can it be the previous Friday? Does your answer change depending on the time (morning/ afternoon) notice is given? If I don’t want to potentially burn any bridges, should I just have my notice period end on a Monday and just take that day out of my scheduled vacation before starting my next job? First time giving notice - would be interested in hearing what others have done.
How much leeway do you have when negotiating start dates? I would like to start in Jan since I save most of my PTO for the holidays. If I start in Nov/Dec I either won’t be able to take it or will start in a hole. Plus new job offers WAY less PTO (VP thought it was 10 days to start vs my current 25, but am currently waiting for formal offer from HR).
Does anybody here own a holiday home and rent it out? Thinking of building one but given there's barely any tourism I'm thinking my funds could go further elsewhere.
Just got back from the cook islands and looking for my next island vacation. What is your favorite island to visit? Best sand beaches? Good snorkeling or diving?
Should I work a bit during holiday break to get my areas in good shape or just say f this and take time off because audit is going to get done no matter what. I inherited messy area from a person who recently left the firm and leadership was saying we (as in I) need to put in extra effort to close down review notes that the previous girl left (there’s about 89 open as of now lol)
I’m waiting on my offer letter from Deloitte and coming in as a senior. I was just wondering what some of the perks are (pto, etc).
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Has My People Link been updated for vacation days with the transition to Mercury? Also, if you’re carrying over vacation from the prior year, when do you have to use it by?

Really got into investing this year. Have about 60-65 percent of my money in investments (not including 401k). I want to add more, but not sure if that’s enough.
Preschool classrooms often look so different from kindergarten classrooms. What are some of the ways you bridge the gap?
If you are on an FWA, do you need to meet your FWA utilization hours every week? I.e I am 75% so do I need 30 charge plus whatever admin hours to mercury? I am talking to my people consultant and she seems to think so. In a job that is highly seasonal, how is this possible??
Remember the big 4 consultant who got screwed because he expensed reloading his starbucks card? What was the verdict on that? Is that allowed
I'm with Accenture and seeing a suitable roles with EY, Deloitte and PWC. Do EY, Deloitte and PWC transfer H1b? What's the typical timeframe for them to start Green card processing?
For those of you that have had COVID, how long did you wait before returning to work? (remotely) Still feeling a bit clammy and my back is super achey but overall much better than I was a few days ago. Just curious when others said “good enough” and started working.
Lately I’m becoming more frustrated that I’ll never be able to buy a house out here despite making a good salary. And with my job, I can’t move somewhere affordable and be fully remote. Anyone else?
Guy behind me in the group 1 line to board the plane - "are you group 1?" - no asshole, I'm just standing here to be a total inconvenience to you. STFU and go to your exit row seat.
I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
What are your thoughts on jumping soon after promotion/comp increase? Does it automatically burn a bridge?
Applying for a manager role in advisory at Grant Thornton in a HCOL, 10 YOE. What should total comp look like? Additionally, does Grant Thornton offer relocation bonuses? And if so, how much?

Got rejected in technical round for networking profile. Did a lot of hard work to crack interview. But didn't make it. Feeling frustrated. Persons with least knowledge got the job a year before, now gained good experience by working on technologies say that you will be rejected if they refer me to their organization. So frustrated I am. Not getting a break doe a good profile. Blood job has sucked me up.
