Sick for the first time in 2 years because I spent time with extended family and their kids. What is it about kids constantly being sick?? I spend 2 days around toddlers and my immune system takes a vacation.
I finally got a job and am very excited..but wanted to understand: Is 20 day PTO and 10 day holiday good? I had grand ideas of getting unlimited pto and working remotely and feel I can’t do this with 20 days The pay is good-ish and I am trying to negotiate on that. Can I negotiate on holidays, or anything else?
Has it ever occurred that EY HR system count sick days as our PTOs. My recent sick days at all counted as vacations in EY vacation calendar and my sick day time stays as same.

Starting MBB soon and would appreciate any recommendations on preparing myself for success on my first day? I’ve got a number of weeks until I start and will take some time off, but I’d also like to stay sharp and come in feeling confident. Any suggestions are welcome.
Went through a bad burnout a few months ago and ended up taking some time off during the Christmas holidays to recover. Now that I am back, I feel disengaged and can’t help but constantly feel like I don’t belong here. Anyone else go through a similar experience?

Morning 🐟 Has anyone here gone on an all inclusive vacation using Costco Vacations? Would love to know how it went for you? Thinking of going to Cabo over the holidays in December.
My management brag about how little PTO they take - it makes me not look up to them but rather pity them & think I'm in the wrong firm. No one regrets the days they didn't work on their death bed.
PwC New York Metro holiday party invitation just went out. No longer allowed to bring +1s. Brutal.

I found out today that my employer doesn’t offer any paid parental leave (maternity or paternity). This isn’t a major issue now, but my wife and I are planning on trying in a year or so from now. How many other employers don’t offer any paid leave at all? Coming from public accounting this seemed outrageous to me, but curious to see what other companies are like.
There is an echo when I speak on calls due to my home office being relatively empty. I added a carpet but hasn’t made as big an impact as I would like. Any tips

Searching for hobby suggestions/ideas. I’ve been struggling to focus lately and it’s been difficult for me to focus on my usual hobbies (reading, building an app side project etc). Ideally, looking for a hobby that can help with de-stressing and decompressing during my unwind time after logging off in the evenings; not something super strenuous. Thanks in advance!

About to start at firm A in a week, but I've already accepted another offer from firm B. It was leaps and bounds better in terms of comp. Am I better off telling firm A the real reason that I am reneging, or should I skirt around the question?
Struggling heavily with mental health amid the crisis, due to loneliness and the gradual realization that we're really in this for the long haul and things likely aren't going back to normal for a long time. Zoom calls help a little but not that much and the constant barrage of people talking about 'the new normal' only makes it worse. Any tips/advice?

Rejected by 2 exit ops after on-sites where 2 of 3 recruiters sent a personal message/email saying something like "you seem great/qualified but not the right fit". One said "the HM said you seem really bright and would hire asap if we were looking for a generalist". Another said "this isn't about weakness or lack of experience, just questions on fit". Do recruiters say this to a lot of people or is this genuine? Trying to gauge whether my interview performance is at least solid.
