Holiday cards with kids’ photos to coworkers: yay/nay? Where do you draw the line? I kind of like showing the bosses whose lives they’re affecting but would love to hear thoughts!

Hey 🐠. Team is supposed to be off this wk, but instead is working M-W and the Partner said that this is a “PRD” week, meaning that we are not billing (getting utilization). Is this against policy?
Vacation planning question: nyc based. Euro trip planned. Planning to book train travel between paris brussels amsterdam online. Is there one site where I can book all travel well in advance?
Planning on buying a vacation home and renting it out when I’m not using it. Anyone with Airbnb’s or the like have issues with cleaners/maintenance from afar? It would be a plane ride so hard to check in that things have been done properly.
This is a bit of an aside, but over the last year or two, I've noticed "career coaching" explode as a service and a field. But, like what is it? How is it different from therapy, and how should it be utilized? I'm intrigued, but don't know much about it.
Happy Monday!! Just a quick reminder to NOT feel bad for taking time off. You deserve it! You only get 1 chance to live your life. There are no do overs. This is not a game! 🚨Motto for the rest of the year: Working to live not living to work. Side note: you’re replaceable at almost every company but not replaceable to your family.
EY is just shafting us this year. Reducing cell phone reimbursement, getting rid of platinum status and now shitty holiday "celebrations."
First time spending the holiday season alone. Please recommend activities to do. Currently, tired of seeing friends Instagram reels.
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. 😂
Curious as to how people utilize their experience managers/resource managers...are they helpful in getting staffed/managing utilization?
my partner always says you have to to reach out for work everyday when available and blames low utilization on the staff level when we have a dedicated resource manager. Is this industry standard?
I'm a CD with 12 years in the business, experience both agency and client side, art and copy friendly. Ready for a change in NYC. Any leads (please and thank you)?
How do you know if you actually have inattentive ADHD vs general anxiety? Those of you who do: how long did it take to get diagnosed? I’m at a point where I’m considering getting an official diagnosis from a doc. It’s interfering with my day to day ie I easily zone out and get real anxious halfway through conversations (even short ones) Zoom calls are no better. I often forget timelines & major details esp about people. (I was talking to a friend about someone and forgot we all work together)
Any fun ideas for a gender reveal? (Not mine but for a friend). Only 6 of us will be there

Those of you in a committed relationship, how do you plan to make it work? And did that factor into what schools you're applying to?
I just realized that my base salary is only 8k more than the new hire I am training. My base is 56k, his 48k. I’ve been with this firm for 2.5 years, had two years experience as an intern coming in, and am licensed. The new hire is 5ish years younger with only his bachelors, no experience. Is this normal?? I know our firm is trying to get more help but they don’t seem to care about keeping good workers. I do end up making 70k w/ overtime but still!

Deciding between UT-Austin, Cornell and UCLA for tech. Scholarships aside, I love texas culture having lived there for a few summers but its the lowest rank on my list. UCLA has one of the best pipelines for tech but I’m not rich and dont know anyone in LA so would i feel left out given the affluence of the area ? And cornell I loved the student body and the inclusive tight knit nature but do they place well in the west for tech? Can anyone help? Thank you!
MGNI stating to look attractive sub $19.
In my late 20's, but I've lived in my current city (nonUS) my whole life. I was really looking forward to moving to NYC and landed a job there earlier this year although I'm still WFH and not in the US yet. A recruiter reached out to me for a new role but it would be in my old city. I'd be pretty fine with both roles themselves. But the NYC one would pay about 140$ TC (not sure about bonus yet, this is a guess), and the non-NYC one would be maybe $25-30 more. Is the $ worth the city sacrifice?
