What salary did you find that you no longer had to worry about money? Basically you didn't have to think twice about buying something you want For reference, currently make 135k in a T2 city but am the sole earner for my family and also have 1200/month in student loans, so still feel like I'm not there yet.
Made by me for our "entitled" brothers/sisters at EY. Hope you all leave and get the respect/PTO you deserve.
Used to spend all my weekends with this guy I was seeing last year. Things have been so rocky this year, we barely meet. He wants to take some time off and concentrate on himself and being more active before committing to anything. He has literally filled all his weekends with sports and meetups there after. He tells me about everything he does honestly but I can’t help but feel replaced.
I saw a retail establishment fully decked out in Christmas decorations a few days ago. I, too, love the holiday season. But it's not the season yet!!
Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode. Open to suggestions or ideas. My team is spread out internationally, so even sending a stupid “swag” gift is next to impossible.
I recently received an offer from a new firm. I informed my managing partner ab it. He offered me slightly more $ to stay but still didn’t even come close to what I’d be making. I then gave him my 2 weeks notice and accepted the offer with the new firm.￼ All amicable. I had 2 vacation days scheduled, which the firm knew about for months and happened to fall within my last 2 weeks. While out last week, they then told me to not worry ab coming back in and that I am terminated. Thoughts on this?
Going to be in Madrid for the next 4 days on vacation. Any recommendations?? Used points so will be staying at the Westin Palace Madrid.
When you don't have an Uber receipt to show when you left the corporate holiday party because you walked home...and you have no idea what time you got home.
Pwc - new joiner, how do we do vacation this week? I got the email but 2 days of vacation Monday and Tuesday is that the same as floating holiday? Or so I use a different WBS for floating holiday?
Vacation Question- Westin vs W (Paris)?
Trying to find awards show categories for a globally activated branded holiday. Any thoughts greatly appreciated :)
Technology has made our life easier but also so much harder. In our parents era when they went on vacation there was no way of finding them so they enjoyed their days off… Nowadays is “you can go on vacation but have to be available if needed”… bro what? I feel like the partners at my firm are specialists in this regard - went to play a round of golf and had 4 calls with a partner. Get lost.
Joined a pharma company for a role about a year ago and feel extremely demotivated and underutilized with my abilities. Is it too soon to make a switch? How do I best position myself for a switch to another company?
GT MBA (Management of Technology - similar to an MIS) worth it for a tech consultant that wants to stay tech focused, but didn't get a Stanford/MIT worthy GMAT?
Should I just directly Slack someone in Sloan adcomms asking them whether they’ll send admitted and/or enrolled student a gift? I was really looking forward to that book man.
How to set boundaries at work with the Covid campaigns? We’re already working long hours during the week. I really can’t take this on the weekends too. I know you’re supposed to ‘save your job’ but...
If I’m leaving my current company for a new job and I really like the printer my current company gave me for WFH at the start of COVID, can I make them an offer to buy it from them?
So a friend of mine invited a teacher to “hang out” with their student/child outside contracted hours on a weekend. Call me crazy but I think that’s a lil out of line. Teachers have lives outside of your children.
Anybody have any podcast recommendations for lawyering? I listen to How I Lawyer but was wondering if anyone has any other suggestions
What's the norm for consulting firms during a shutdown? Do people on non funded projects usually get furloughed or kept on? Asking because I've been at a bigger firm that kept everyone on during the last shutdown, but I'm at a much smaller company now that is going to furlough on a project by project basis (if your project is shutdown, you get furloughed). Just curious if this is commonplace among smaller firms/what the norm is for bigger ones as well? What's been your experience?
