Anyone else at a shop that makes PTO for creatives a total rat race? Only 9 creatives per day.
On PTO during CRT results time. Don't want PTO spoiled by it, good or bad. Ask partner for it so it's before I leave? Or wait until after 4th of July holiday? 🤔
Accenture 🐠 : Can you take PTO during 2 week notice period? Just relized that I will be paid only for 240Hrs of PTO rest be gone
Do you guys sometimes think you’re not living life right? Like you’re some type of robot. I think the 40 hour work week + PTO constraints is a bit much.
Do you guys prefer to take breaks while staffed on an active study or wait until the study closes and schedule vacation for a week or whatever term between studies?
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.
Proposal touch point near EOD. I will be PTO tomorrow and unavailable most of the evening. Does it make sense to still attend or should I just decline the invite? I’m kind of nervous saying that I’ll be unavailable for action items. First proposal so sorry for the newb question.
During this time last year, stores were putting up holiday stuff and we would complain that every year the holiday shopping started earlier and earlier. (._. )
At Deloitte can you have negative PTO hours? Trying to understand policy because I heard it’s different from firm to firm
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?
Sometimes I volunteer to go on business trips I don't need to go on because that hour or two by myself in the hotel room is the only actual vacation I ever get.
How is Deloitte with PTO? If I need to take a Thursday/Friday off- do they let me fly back on a Wednesday instead?
Which agency offers the most time off?
Looking to hire a full-time junior designer in Chicago. Multinational agency, cool clients, all the benefits and unlimited PTO. Message me with q’s and for more info.
The holiday emails are ....
What is a standard amount personal paid of time off in consulting (excluding national holidays)? Asking in days per year. Current offer is for 10 but that’s less than my old firm. However this is my first job switch so I’m not sure what’s considered average.
Office is dead. Everyone is on vacation.
If I put in my notice right before the holiday weekend, will they ask me to leave that day or should I just wait till we get back?
What do you all do once you hit hours and want to coast (or just not work at all) for the rest of the year? I recently took vacation so feel weird taking another back to back, and my existing matters are still busy. Should I just do it? Could probably take 3 weeks completely off and still hit hours.
Let’s make a Creative Complaints bowl. A bowl dedicated to venting about what the client/account/pm did today to piss us off.
ACN gets compensation info tomorrow for salary increases. I expect to hear a lot of joy and sorrow on FB. Good luck everyone!
When rolling over 401k from ACN, did y’all have to call Alight to mail the check? I tried doing it online and they are sending me to a rollover central site that is asking for a lot of info.

Anyone ever use upwork for excel analysis? Looks legit. $25/hour to pay someone to do the bullshit I get stuck with at this client
Considering an influencer diversity role at Marina Maher. It would be a higher role than I have now, but wondering about culture?
Just withdrew right before my interviews with Amazon and Microsoft this week. Still remember the good old days when I used to worship em and ask everyone for a referral but now just happy with non-FAANG industry exit, significant bump and amazing WLF.
Is there anyone here from McKinsey or BCG in Montreal willing to chat? Im thinking about applying soon, but I feel like speaking with someone who works there will help me assess if I would love working there (culture, types of projects, etc), and that my interest isnt solely based on prestige/reputation!
I’m very into indian arts culture and myself learned classical dance forms (3), Carnatic singing, and violin, but I am interested to hear about some more arts you all might be engaging in as hobbies or passions. I really like to work with my hands to create something. Right now I’m working on a project to learn interior design using high end, business professional desi design patterns in my apt. What are some other nice arts culture hobbies inspired by India?
FAANG folks - what are Facebook/Google roles like Country Lead/Industry Lead equivalent to? Are these Director level roles? What sort of compensation can you expect in something like that role?
Mask off: Journalist to freelance copywriter. Started working full-time under contract for an agency that won't hire me. I've freelanced for agencies and in-house marketing teams, but I'm always the outsider looking in. I want to transition to a full-time permanent gig. Interviews seem to go well, 2 agencies went to 3 interviews and nothing. I know I'm totally missing something that agency insiders would understand. Would love advice on navigating uncharted territory. Thank you!
The market is HOT. Went to see recruiter yesterday and already have 3 interviews scheduled for jobs I would love.
I want to get my start into marketing/advertising as a junior strategist and so I was wondering if anyone had tips when it comes to resume, portfolio, interviewing, etc.? Especially considering my lack of direct m/a background (mostly self-taught) compared to folks from miami ad school or vcu
Hi ladies! Advice on moving home for the fall/save some $$ vs. staying in the city (Boston)? I have a healthy-ish relationship with my family, turning 24 and recently single - not sure if now is a great time to date but am I wasting time by not? My logic says I should rent out my apt (homeowner), but part of me wants to stay in the city. Originally, I was moving to London this summer w/work (postponed due to COVID) but I’m still trying to move in Jan if I can find the l right opp this fall. Ty!
Any non-gendered soccer leagues in Brooklyn devoid of bro-culture I can join? In or around Williamsburg preferable.
If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?
Going to talk to a CPA but curious how many of you take the home office deduction? I do most of my work at home but meet clients at an office in a high rise. The IRS info isn’t clear if I qualify
What are some reasons to decline a second interview? I recently interviewed for an Internal Audit role but I didn’t feel like the pay range matched the job. This IA role is for a small credit union and you’ll be the only IA. It’s a new role they came up with this year as different departments would have a a role at different audits. Their pay range is 65K - 75K DOE.
