Random doubt on my head: How do firms even count PTOs? What stops people from telling their manager that they took a PTO and not adding it to their DTE/ Staffit, especially when on bench ?
I’m realizing I have a lot of fear—mostly related to health stuff and death. Feel like people are getting sick left right and center (not talking about covid). I’ve never had anyone close to me become very sick or die—don’t know what I would do if this happened. I’m also overly concerned about my health and seem to be at the doctor every month to get something checked. Can anyone relate or provide suggestions on how to overcome something like this?
Thinking of spending a week in Cyprus for vacation and don’t know much about the country. Does anyone have any advice/ experience visiting?
What would you do if you had 2 weeks of bench time or vacation right now? Go to India to meet family or roam around US by yourself
Ill say it again, we should start considerin splitting the Union. There is a minority of the US who wants a mad man in charge. There is very little reason for the majority to abide by this.
I’m 2.5 weeks out of training and haven’t been utilized to the full extent. I haven’t been staffed and rarely have been asked to complete smaller one-off projects. Who should I talk to? MD? Associate? Other analysts? Broader question is ‘how do I ask for work?’
What’s your sweet spot for number/days of vacation per year while also striving toward FIRE?
Do airline bathrooms average the highest utilization of any public bathrooms? Every time I go in its wall to wall w dudes dropping heat. Ladies is this the same for you?
Could someone explain under what instances you may get a Medical RFE when filing your I-485? I’ve seen some people advicing to wait on doing the medical until you get an RFE notice from USCIS, but EY is filing both my I-140 and I-485 together and has requested the medical before filing both forms. I am a bit confused…
I’ve been on PTO since yesterday but I keep checking my emails through my phone... what is wrong with me 😣
Is taking the sabbatical offered by pwc, career suicide... in a time when utilization matters so much?
How do I tell my coach that my depression and crying half the day is why my utilization is lower than expected :( she set up a meeting for tomorrow and I have anxiety
Help me predict when I’ll get the GC. Filed AOS, EAD, AP, medical together I-131, I-765, I-485 receipts in early Oct 2021 I-140 not yet approved Nebraska center ROW
EY's fiscal year ends in June and effective July 1st utilization resets. How fitting that there is a heavy emphasis on keeping utilization up in the coming weeks. 😂
Here’s a perfect example of totalitarianism, from an unelected official no less. You give them a finger, they’ll take the whole arm (and other organs if you’re below a certain age, but let’s leave that discussion for another day. Background: military, medical kept losing my record, received multiple doses of the same thing over and over, even the dreaded Anthrax series. This isn’t about the vaccine or preventing anything, this is about abuse of power and authority.
For utilization, if the denominator is fixed to 2080 (40 x 52), there is no way you can be a 100% utilized even if you're staffed throughout the year and bill 8 hours per business day?
Feeling really demotivated lately... probably burnt out. I can't really use up vacation days in case family wants to go on a big trip next summer, so have to save up PTO (cont).
Welcome to Whose Job is it Anyways! Where the deliverable is made up and the utilization doesn't matter.
As a new consultant... How attainable is the utilization goal in general? I know there are several factors but high level: do most people hit it?
I spent the last 3 months "growing up" & now I'm ready to go. 1st thing is for me to get my own place. I'd like to buy instead of rent because I don't want to pay someone else's mortgage. I'm thinking of selling my car & cash out some of my 401k to buy a house. My thought is to put down 3.5% for a FHA loan then make a big payment towards the principal to reduce long-term interest. Anything wrong with this thinking or anything else I should consider?

Does MBB have a GPS practice? If so, where do they recruit from for experienced hires? Big4, Booz, government itself?
Anyone have perspective on how MBB (specifically Bain) benefits are better than big 4? I heard Bain contributes 4.5% of salary to your 401k regardless of any employee contributions, which is great. Any other big perks that make their benefits package superior to others (eg. Big 4)?
Hi Guys, Can anybody help me with information on Epsilon Bangalore. And what should be salary demand for a person with 10 years of experience for this company.
Been 7 business days since my final onsite google interview and the recruiter told me yesterday “the hiring manager is still working on a final decision”. Am I toast?
Having a hard time figuring out where to buy a long term house. We both work in the city, and have a kid. We want decent space (is a yard too much to as for?), good schools, nice town, walking distance to the train. Yes - I’m hoping unicorns do exist. So far something like Bronxville and Scarsdale seem like good options. Open to checking out other towns in any region as long as the commute to Bryant park is close to an hour. Any suggestions?
Saw a few openings for AML analyst / associate positions in the southeast US within PwC’s advisory acceleration center. I’m not familiar with the AC division. Any insight? What’s the culture like / wlb?

What kinds of models can I create for low frequency businesses? I recently switched to a startup at a data analyst role and have been teaching myself about statistics…I found survival analysis models and wanted to try and implement one to determine our customer retention rate and eventually a LTV The business I’m in is very low frequency (most customers use our product once a year, but we do have many users) and I’m worried this will lead to poor results. What other models do…
I have an exit offer to a major PharmaCo, really excited about the offer and company in another state. The problem is that the start date is right when my wife is due with our first child. Normally nbd, but we just found out that my wife has developed a heart condition because of the pregnancy. OBGYN and Cardiologist both have said that it would be ultra high risk for to move before the baby comes and will be safe 1-2month after. Tips moving the start date without getting the offer pulled?
