Any suggestions for neighborhoods/streets/displays of holiday decorations and lighting? Back in LA there were neighborhoods known to have the best decorations and we’d do a drive through it. Anything like that here?
My girlfriend and I really want to take vacation in early May but since I'm writing the CFE this year, would it be advisable to bank those days for studying? How much time do we get off to study?
My dad works for the state and he currently has 7 months of accrued vacation and 10 months of sick time....we’re doing it wrong guys
Looking at My People Link for my vacation/personal/and sick hours. With the new sick policy, are y'all using all 80 hrs regardless of situation? I feel like the mentality is "use it or lose it".
I work in a group that has had to come in to the office regularly during COVID (lots of work with original documents and wet ink signatures). It’s real estate and title companies still require wet ink documents. One junior has refused to come in because he says he’s concerned about COVID. We all wear masks, close our doors, and socially distance. We’ve all had to pick up the slack for him. Just found out he’s taking his second vacation during COVID and visiting family in FL. I could scream.
How is the proposed tax holiday going to work? You don't pay taxes now but owe it by April 15 2021?
Is it fine to decline a virtual holiday party that goes from 5:30 - 7:00 PM? I like my team but I also don’t feel like staring at a screen for another 1.5 hours longer than I have to.
Is unlimited PTO a curse or a blessing!
Travelling to Spain next week (PTO). Should I pay for collision damage waiver for my rental car? Worth it?
In what month does the typical annual headcount reduction happens at Deloitte? I would guess before holiday.
Random Employment Law Question: If an employee has accrued PTO in CA, can their employer (headquartered in TX) deny pay for any time off taken for a certain period?

What agencies have flexible time off??
Planning a 2 week vacation in August - Ireland or Germany? Haven't spent significant time in either.
Coming back to work after vacation is pure torture. Idk how parents come back after 16 weeks of leave 😓
I think PGA/LPGA camera operators are very under appreciated. I mean, the skill it takes to spot, zoom in, and track a tiny golf ball flying through the air at 150+mph over and over and from multiple angles is incredible. I literally can’t follow my own golf ball leaving my club much less someone else’s with a camera mounted on my shoulder.
Do you think WFH will end in every country once vaccines are available to everyone? What if you don't get the vaccine?
Fam— would anyone be interested in a Glassdoor for black people? i.e anonymized reviews of companies from POCs. I think it would be massively helpful in gauging the diversity and inclusivity of a company outside polished recruitment processes and would publicly hold companies accountable. Thoughts?
Any (light) book recommendations to read- non fictional, not self-help. Psychology, abstract, biography, science, human evolution, how our mind works, etc..
My partner (along with his team) has been laid off from an equity research role. He is on H1b visa and has until end of February to find a new job otherwise he’ll have to leave the country.

Always been with II-ranked teams and twice voted rising star. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

For B4 partners, what happens to your shares if you leave the firm before vesting? E.g. if you left 3 years after making partner
Hear me out. We’re living in the residual days of advertising power. Back in the day, if you worked in advertising, you very much shaped culture. Advertising creatives shared the airwaves with only the likes of Hollywood and national news. There were only so many pipes into culture and advertising was a big one. But today, the pipes are democratized. Random teens on TikTok are having more impact on culture than Mad Ave. And yet, so much ego and self importance remains.
Has anyone left for another big4 with the intention of returning later? I’m being offered a manager role and a nice pay bump at the same practice at another firm. I can tell their leadership doesn’t h
What is the work culture like in Accenture CN?
My dog is the biggest mamas boy. We will be out of town for a week soon and when we took this vacation last year, he wouldn't walk with anyone but me. I want my cousins kids to be able to walk him this year, any ideas on how to do this?
Best way to blow Bonvoy points on a 1 night stay in Honolulu? Considering Ritz, Royal Hawaiian and Moana Surfrider. Any good experiences?
I am curious to hear your honest thoughts. I don’t know what other firms have done but my firm has fired people, furloughed people, cut pay, delayed promotions and hire dates, etc. but also has allocated a chunk of change above what has been given in the past to support social justice causes. While I support the cause I wonder how associates feel about this when frankly some of it is at their expense?
non-MBB consulting firms that would hire experienced professionals with JDs? Any info/help here?
Wish I could just sit on the lake and watch the jets practice for the Air and Water Show all day 🛩🛩🛩🛩... sucks for anyone flying through ORD though
