My firm doesn't have a set maternity/paternity leave policy at my firm and I'm trying to get an idea of what types of policies mid-sized firms in New Jersey offer to their employees. How many weeks of paid time by the firm (not FMLA) is the norm?
What salary did you find that you no longer had to worry about money? Basically you didn't have to think twice about buying something you want For reference, currently make 135k in a T2 city but am the sole earner for my family and also have 1200/month in student loans, so still feel like I'm not there yet.
Favorite family vacation spots in the US?
This is very well done. Straight up holiday fun. Catchy, too https://www.facebook.com/126756847074/posts/10156165247107075/
Is it too soon to take some PTO (2 days specifically) only a month after starting a new job? New to consulting coming from industry
Are any of you being treated differently by friends and family because you’re taking care of positive and PUI Covid patients? I almost feel like it’s a crime bring an RN right now. No one will come near me. All my family that lives out of state cancelled my summer vacation trips to come see them. The family that lives close by me won’t let me In their houses. I’m feeling so alone and very isolated.
Very single and don’t have anyone to go to the holiday party with. Fairly new to firm and don’t know anyone in the office. Should I go solo or find a random date?
Hi Ladies! I’m new to the US and have been recently invited to my husband’s office holiday party in December. I know it’s too early for holiday parties but I’m not going to be here for the next couple of months and coming back just a day before the actual event. I wanted to know about holiday party dressing etiquettes. What do people usually wear and what to avoid? Any recommended stores? I’m 28 and petite. I’m in the NYC area and my husband works in Consulting, if that matters.
4th of July Holiday is over... Going back to work tomorrow. Whatever rest I had in the last few days, I already feel a sense of tiredness, depression and hopelessness due to the fact that there will be plenty of work waiting for me again...How in the nine hells people are supposed to feel rested after PTO?
How are y’all getting such high comp/paying jobs? Genuinely curious, I thought I was doing alright for 3 YOE (90k) but realistically after taxes, savings, health insurance.. etc I really can’t “afford” anything I really want. I understand YOE and MBA’s are factors and can lead to higher comp, but that being said I really can’t afford to take time off with no pay and put myself in more debt. Looking for side gigs too but work takes up all my time. Thoughts?
Can I use my vacation/ sick leave during my 2 week notice at a company I’ve been at for 8 months?
How was your holiday party?
Analyst keeps taking time off for dr appointments, sick, etc. Today they were screen sharing and had a bunch of tabs open with titles that were obviously emails regarding interview scheduling, follow ups, and job search websites. Hope all that sickness doesn’t impede their ability to land a new job!
I am thinking of going to Cancun, Mexico for 5 day vacation as I am seeing some deals in August. Is August too early in general to plan travel ? Any thoughts on Mexico ?
I’m convinced LinkedIn is the most disconnected and dystopian group of people. I just saw someone make a post about how kind they were for taking a chance on someone who has a resume gap because they were taking care of their dying family member. Last week someone thanked their boss for giving them time off to give birth. I have nothing constructive to add — I just want to emphasize how ridiculous people are.
During my PTO, my SM called me and asked me to start plugging myself in and he mentioned that I don't want to be left behind. He asked me to set up a call during my PTO to "catch up" with the rest of the team. I cannot wait to get out of this company as this is kinda touching my bottom line.
Is asking for a month vacation too much? I’m planning on going back to Africa for the first time in 15 years next year and would like to request some time off.

Beyond 2 lines the text in each post card is cut off. I wonder how many lines in the comment section?
Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...

Graduating an MBA program into a post MBA consultant role at an MBB firm. By the time I graduate I’ll have ~ $100K in student loans. How manageable is my loan situation?
Curious about the salary progression of others. How much did you make at age 20, 25, 30, and 35?

Any tips or best practices on meeting with a client for the first time? I'm not leading the engagement, but I'd still like to make a professional impression!
Moving from LA to Boston for less than a year (spouse going to grad school). Cheaper to put everything in storage and buy new cheap stuff there, or move the whole apartment furniture there and back?
Love BAH but I am looking to make a move (underpaid) to the big4. Culture is a priority for me, any of you big4 people absolutely love your firm? Is Deloitte culture as bad as this app makes it seem?
+500k homeless ppl in the US, yet ppl care more about refugees from other countries being admitted to the system to receive US govt assistance. Why aren't we this passionate about our own citizens?

Managing 2 analysts - noticed their teams status is routinely away for 2-3 hours at a time. Responsive within 5-10 mins of ping and always get their work done albeit sometimes late at night. Is this a problem?
