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.
If I'm forced to use my vacation, floater, etc. towards my study leave for CFE but I have vacation booked for right after CFE, will PwC still let me take that vacation as a "leave of absence"?
AA staff denied my boarding through One World Ruby (even though I showed her my Privilege Club card) very unprofessionally because it doesn't show on my boarding pass. Gotta love holiday travels.
Planning to accept another job soon but have a scheduled 1 week vacation starting next week. When should I put in 2 weeks notice that I’m leaving? Is it a risk that they withdraw approval of my long-approved PTO? New job wants me to start ASAP so I’d feel bad delaying start dat over a month if the solution is to wait until after vacation to give 2weeks notice
I am having the hardest time in my life. Depression and anxiety have become unmanageable from the pressure to bill with only a ten vacation day policy. I don’t sleep anymore. I cry every single day. I have pushed through so much mentally to keep going, To keep logging in and billing but after two years the burnout is real. I have no more will do anything. I’m mentally burnt. My body physically aches from the lack of sleep and pure state of stress I’m constantly in. Any encouragement? Something?
What should I do after a FET? What is the best practice? Anything you did/avoided? Eg are you on modified best rest? Do you take time off work to ensure that you are not stressed/sit too much?
Is it possible to pass REG in a month of studying? I am going to take vacation about 2 weeks before the exam as well.
Hey, it’s a holiday!
Is there anyone from Gartner who can tell what they think about the benefits. How many days pto, what is the 401k like?, healthcare etc? Any idea how many days PTO dies an associate partner get?
There’s a scene in the 3rd season of the west wing where josh is talking to Leo about wanting to go away on vacation to Tahiti with a woman he’s dating. Josh is reluctant to take time off, as a lot..
Forgot to tell managers I have PTO scheduled even though it’s on our team calendar. What’s the best way to break the news since it’s in 2 weeks. I feel bad for not asking first 😓
Headed to a holiday party. quick: give me three interesting non controversial topics to talk about
I took PTO today (to my job) and worked today (to my family) and just sat in my home office on the internet
... Back from a week of vacation... Hit me McBee
First year C here. Button down + chinos + blazer okay for the holiday party? Too casual?
Attempting to renter the workforce after a 2 year hiatus due to health issues followed by the pandemic. During this time off I had minor success running a small business, but not enough to pay the bills. I have 3 YOE, 1.5 as a Loan Officer, and 1.5 as a consultant within compliance and Fintech. Please let me know of any fully remote positions, or hybrid positions based out of Chicago or Milwaukee. I live in Dubuque IA, so for in office work it would have to be in Dubuque. TIA!
>bust ass to get projects in a good place before PTO >return from PTO and panic because projects are in next phase with no current copy needs and calendar is empty
PwC peeps: I have over 135% utilization. Has anybody used G&A code instead of the vacation code? Since I don't see that I'll be on the bench anytime soon and that 30% has to go somewhere. Tips, ideas?
Has anyone ever put in their 2-week notice while on the bench and got let go prior because... no work?
Used to work as an AE at Yelp. Got laid off. What do you think the areas of opportunity are right now in the world of sales? Still a good time to be in tech?
What liturgical rite do you observe within the Catholic church? Ill go first, I attend the Traditional Latin Mass of the Latin Roman Rite underneath the one and holy Catholic apostolic umbrella of the church.
Best LAX shuttle service? Used Uber for every trip, but would prefer something with terminal pickup. Might as well book both ways elsewhere. Cost not the biggest factor but reliability.
Flying to St. Lucia in November, fiancé on points and myself on a paid ticket. Will AA still combine two different reservations with identical itineraries?
Looking for a strong AAE or AE level comms/pr/social person to join my client-side team. Tech company, ad industry, global team, and lots of opportunity to grow. In NYC, downtown. DM me!
Should I worry abt utilization in1st year? I'm on fed tax but nobody gives me work. I found state tax stuff to do but I'm don't want to be on salt forever.. should I ask for more state stuff?
Not financially savvy (learning). I want to set aside $2500 a paycheck for a house down payment in 18-36 months. Does it make more sense for me to contribute the $2.5k to my 401k monthly and withdraw in 2 years, or just set aside $2.5k into a savings account? Already maxed ESPP. My end goal is to buy a house.
I'm already pretty soft-spoken. How will students be able to hear me behind a mask? I feel like I'm going to be exhausted trying to project my voice. Same with understanding the kids!
None of my Zoom meetings have been hacked or compromised, do the hackers think im ugly ?
Anyone ever thought about turning down a job offer because their office looked like crap? Think 1980's old school office.
Anyone on here complete grad school through GSAP and go back to Deloitte and have any pro tips for how to do it right? (Max reimbursement, things to do before you leave, benefits, etc.)
Help a new international consultant in NAMR. Please. Tax planning season. 1. I have maxed out 401K. 2. If I put money in traditional IRA, and then roll over to Roth IRA - what is the tax treatment? If this is post-tax money, do I pay any additional taxes now or later on capital gains? 3. Are there other avenues I am missing? Thank you very much in advance.
Am I an attractive candidate at all? Or is it silly to think I could jump soon for a comp increase? 1 yoe BAH fed (7 yoe in nonprofit sector before that), currently at 90k. Have some generalist certifications (agile, prosci, working on instructional design). Non-technical, no master’s. Resume is mostly attractive bc of extensive international/cross-cultural experience & DoS experience. Am I still too “meh” with only 1yoe & no tech skills?
Hello All, I have a request. Would any folks working at MBB in Toronto be willing to have a quick chat? I am looking to transition into consulting and would like to seek advice and or suggestions about the application process. Thank you.
Long shot, but anyone at JFK have an extra dell charger? Left mine at the client and would prefer not doing the hour drive to the office tomorrow AM 😅
