Have seen a lot of negative about Trump lately. Don't forget, if it wasn't for him, Juneteenth would still be an ignored holiday.
Talent Acquisition teams: Are you all swamped and behind in your ATS processing right now? Asking as several colleagues and friends are actively submitting REFERRED applications for well-matched roles--but not hearing anything from HR. Is the need for talent real or is it overblown in the media? Or are a lot of TA people simply drowning at work or out on vacation right now? Tx for sharing if you are able! I'd like to give people some hope!
Looking to take some PTO in Quebec City. Restaurant, bnb, activity recommendations? Thanks!
What’s the most strategic exit you can make when getting a new job? I want to roll off my project and just say I am looking for a new project and just never take a new one... (sounds terrible I know) My current project contract is about to be over and a lot of people are using it as an opportunity to roll off even though they’re prolly gonna renew it. Start date for my new job is negotiable so I really want to collect as many checks and stack PTO as much as I can. Deloitte Accenture EY PwC Boston Consulting Group Accenture
How much did you spend per person on holiday gifts this year? Curious what most people are doing. Talking to friends I feel cheap. Although I’m a proud miser and don’t care, I’m just curious.
Anyone else’s recruiters fallen off the face of the earth this week with the holiday coming?
Anyone know when holiday layoffs are being scheduled for this year? First week of December or end of January?
Do you care about more money at a chill shop or unlimited pto at a shop you’re burning out in, for less money?
Just got back from 2 week long PTO and the only emails in my inbox are the mass corporate ones... Did I get fired without knowing it? Lol
Planning for a family (of 4) trip to either Greece or Portugal in late fall this year. Flight costs are almost same. Any pointers as to which one would provide biggest bang for the buck? We're mostly laid back, don't care for top end luxury, not great hikers. Just looking a relaxing vacation.
I’ve done really well in my 2 years with my current big 4 firm and am coming up for promotion in July. I am sitting on an offer with a step up in title and 40% pay increase. They say grass is not greener on the other side (hello unlimited PTO and all the other terrible comments I’ve read for new firm. Guess who 😂😅) but it’s hard to justify not moving. Am I making a huge mistake leaving behind my 2 year hard work going to the unknown or should I just go for it and take the pay and title!? Help.
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 accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?
Does Deloitte send people to current address and permanent address for background verification. What if no one is not available in current address when person comes for verification. Will that cause any problem? Asking coz planning a vacation for 2 weeks and worried what if person comes at that time when no one is available
If you had a choice, which would you choose? A) having the annual holiday party B) splitting the holiday party budget equally between employees as bonus BONUS Q: do you know your agency's budget?
My agency technically has unlimited PTO but our managers quietly disapprove of the policy. It’s the kind of place where people make you feel guilty for taking it... (cont)
Debating on investing on our first rental property. We were initially thinking about a rental in our area code (northern virginia) but all ideas/threads on here seem to indicate renting a beach front property on airbnb would be a win-win. Get mortgage covered over the summer and use it as a vacation home during winter. Is it that straightforward, what are we missing? Any reasons why we should not invest in a beachfront and instead stick to original plan? Tia!
First time mom here and want to start creating a budget for myself for my maternity leave- any tools/ resources on finances for pregnancy/maternity leave. Thank you in advance.

I love this group. For those that receive company equity as part of their comp, what’s your strategy? Do you immediately sell it all and put the cash into index funds?

Hello, we recently built out a technology team at our company. They are a phenomenal team with great work flow, rapport and collaboration however, most are junior in their career which can make it difficult for our senior lead to step away. They all receive professional dev allowances so we would like to work toward identifying possible future leads and laying out a growth plan. Do any of you have best practices, tips or resources in doing this specifically for tech talent?

How do you make an argument for stretch roles while you’re interviewing? Coming from accounting to finance or operations, how do you argue that you’ll be a good fit?
A confession: Asked my office crush out today casually. We work in the same client space, joined together and we both live in Pune. Said no without giving any reason. I am disheartened 😔
How is d work culture, career prospects and overall growth opportunities in EY GDS? Just received an offer today for Manager1 position. I hav 12 YEO.
My sister works at a company that is so backward and toxic it scares me. They didn’t have Skype before the pandemic and now use Zoom. She’s trying to get a laptop to WFH with b/c the one that they issued her is from 2005 and is a nightmare to work with, but her boss wants to save money and get her a desktop instead of a laptop b/c they won’t be working from home after COVID. However, he has no problem ordering the newest equipment and WFH himself even before COVID. All I gotta say is toxic.
