I’m really exhausted and feel that taking time off to recover might be treated like a failure to deliver :( and while I’ve been working way too hard, seems like I’ve not been able to network well to apply to newer roles. Any of you here that took time off from work to just recover and prepare for your exit? Tips please!
So, it's my birthday today. I don't have very many good memories associated with it, so it tends to be a pretty shitty day. Same with most major holidays. How do you cope with holiday-linked trauma?
For those who say bitcoin hodlers got tons of money for doing nothing: this is the part that takes time off the end of your life 😨
Can any of the MDPs / Partners on this bowl ensure that Jaime and the rest of the MDPs join this bowl?? To ensure that the leadership can listen to any concerns being raised here. This is like an office level PTO
TFW when your SM announces to the team that your manager is leaving the project while the manager is out on PTO. -_-
What do you guys do if you have one week off between your old and new jobs? I was in Europe for few weeks in September, so had my vacation, I also hate doing nothing!
Getting back from a two week 'vacation' exhausted and just as much in need of a break as I was before I left... FML
S/O to Cathy for the extra money and time-off #GOAT
Hi 🐟🐠- when leaving ACN, is there any advantage to PTO payout vs. staying employed and taking PTO?
Anyone ever negotiated parental leave before? I have an offer on the table. Gave me what I asked for $ wise and PTO. But mat leave is not great. Not trying to have a baby now, but in the next 5 yrs.
Dumb question but if I’m taking PTO Friday-Monday, is my end time at 12AM on that Monday or Tuesday on outlook?
Consultants in their respective federal practices - are you on extended holiday? Or are there still projects that are actively being worked on
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.
Should an agency have a $600,000 holiday party budget and subsequently conduct layoffs before said holiday? #HotSportsOpinion
Tfw youre going on vacation but still have a crap load of work unfinished and a lot more new work waiting for you when you come back... And of course I’ll be thinking about that while on “vacation”..
Anyone else feel like being “encouraged” to take time off when things are slow is a bit disingenuous from leaderships. When I really need time off is when I am working 60 hour weeks back to back for 3 months Karen, not now during a week I’m unassigned.
Thinking of spending a week in Cyprus for vacation and don’t know much about the country. Does anyone have any advice/ experience visiting?
Been in Consulting for over 25 years. Looking for a change. Love stock and options trading. Have been doing system functional and integration testing and like it. Led teams of people (even clients and client contractors). I like to coach, mentor, and motivate. Getting tired of working 60+ hours a week , needing to do +1s and 0 to 2% increases for “great work” but still bring a positive attitude to the team. Just taking PTO and reevaluating next steps. Company/BU recommendations?
It seems like a lot of people, at least on FB, jump from big 4 to big 4. Is the grass really greener? Doesn't seem that common within MBB.
Does internship count towards Yoe? Internship was post grad and there was no break in employment.
Role I applied requires me to relocate to Austin , offer will come soon. I said yes to moving to Austin . But I am located in Florida and don’t want to move. Is there any process that I need to follow to ask for remote work from Florida itself . I don’t want to ask HM/recruiter to cause any impact to my offer .
Any mid-level copywriters looking for work? We had another writer leave and are looking to fill the position. It's a small shop with incredible creative leadership and fun food accounts. Trust me, you’ll get a lot of opportunities and have a blast. PM a link to your book and I'll tell you more.
Unsure where to go post MBA graduation with offers to PwC (DDV), KPMG (Strategy), and ACN (Finance & Risk). Where would you go and why?
Maybe it’s my experience, but I’m rarely asked to go on a shoot. Which kinda bothers me. We somehow make it work so that the necessary ppl (budget wise) go and I give them what I’ll need from the set. But wouldn’t it make more sense for the CWs to go and get what they’ll eventually need (interviews, etc.)?
Does anybody have any data on likelihood of dying from covid vs likelihood of dying from the vaccine? I got the vaccine, my friend didn’t and she keeps arguing that it’s more likely to die from the vaccine than getting covid. I tried researching but couldnt find a comparing data. Help!
Anyone know EY manager Oracle/SAP salary range?
Genuine question: What are the most common exit options at Google BizOps? (1) For internal transfer to PM, those teams seem to prefer to hire Google engineers. (2) For internal transfer to Chief of Staff, why those teams don’t promote their own Strategy & Op folks? (3) For BizOps internal promotion, there are not many Director positions. (4) For leaving Google, I don’t know where people usually go… Please share your thoughts / correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!
Have an interview for an SAP Level 10 (I think if not 9) role for Accenture Federal? How much should I expect the offer to be?

Let’s hear some stories of adversity and overcoming challenges. Socioeconomic, race, gender, disability etc. Work or personal. I think we all need some inspiration that we can overcome, no matter what.
Did you wait for your background check to be completed before giving your notice? What about the final step of contacting the current employer? I have been emailing the team regularly to find out the status so I can give my notice and take some time off
For folks who are looking at exit opportunities: does it make sense to try and work for the M&A group within your firms before looking for corp strat roles? Looks like deal exp is reqd in most roles
Need advice! I have been for Acn for very long but resigned recently. I have not started on the new job yet. I felt happy when I accepted the new job. Recently, anxiety is creeping up on me. Self doubts like Have I made a wrong decision to quit? Maybe I should have waited for the performance bonus? Will the new job be too tough for me to handle? What if the new work culture is bad? What if I do not excel in the new company? Maybe I should retract my resignation?LOL Continued in the comment...
