If those days were outlined in the initial paperwork you signed when you joined then its an alteration to your contract and you should ask for an increase in base pay. (You won't get it, but at least you can raise a stink).

Piro needs a good senior CD, you get all those days and more. Independent and a good family vibe. Great work with clients who want great work. Work life balance a priority.

But we won’t have it off starting next year. Leadership may turn it into a service day but it will not be a day off.

Have there been any upsides for employees thanks to Accenture? Eg. More money for promotions/raises/new hires to share the workload. Are they more willing now to sponsor visas for non Americans?

I work in a group that has had to come in to the office regularly during COVID (lots of work with original documents and wet ink signatures). It’s real estate and title companies still require wet ink documents. One junior has refused to come in because he says he’s concerned about COVID. We all wear masks, close our doors, and socially distance. We’ve all had to pick up the slack for him. Just found out he’s taking his second vacation during COVID and visiting family in FL. I could scream.

Came across the concept of “cash envelope stuffing” on youtube. Seems like a pretty good concept to avoid overspending on each category of expenses. I am trying to get some ideas to incorporate this concept using multiple bank accounts/ cards. Where I allocate a set budgeted amount of money each month, to each bank account tagged for a specific category (groceries, vacation, emergency fund, etc). Is this something you have tried or have any ideas on how to go about it? Do you recommend this?

Does anyone have suggestions for how to negotiate a severance? I was laid off with zero warning after being told my job was secure. They blindsided me.

I have 21 days to sign, so not sure what that means from a risk factor situation for them. I asked for additional comp and health insurance. They came back with slightly better package.
