Lots of comments on here are legit criticism where our industry could be better. That’s a good thing. But stepping away from that for 1 sec to just wish you a safe and Merry Christmas/Happy Holiday.
There are so many holiday parties to attend. Any advice on how to make it to many and still be a functional human by the end of the week?
A recruiter for a company that I was excited to work for has ghosted on me (it’s been a week since they have given me updates). I’ve been told that things are delayed bc several key folks are on vacation atm.
How should I approach this situation? Several other companies I’m interviewing with is reaching final rounds, but tbh I’m not as interested in those roles. Plus I’m getting antsy being unemployed for several weeks since I was laid off.
Can anyone tell me if there is Christmas holiday of 1 week in EY GDS for all employees? I'll be joining soon and I'm planning for a Christmas vacation.
Any recommendations for a good travel tote with pockets? For vacation use. I just got back from a vacation and the amount of time I spent digging in my tote for my wallet/phone/passport was ridiculous

Vacation plans? What's everyone doing this year?
Ladies, do you share your PTO plans w/ your coworkers?
My scenario: Joined a new company in May and I'm taking my 1st PTO (1wk). I normally keep my plans to myself (as my coworkers aren't my friends), but since I'm relatively new and never met my colleagues in-person (due to covid) I'm wondering if I'll seem standoffish.
Is there any way to know your comp memo details before EOY if your coach is on vacation all this week (and firm is closed next week)? Would like to know sooner than Jan :(
Partners, any fun vacation ideas for say 10 days? Traveling with just my wife without our son after such a long time and want it to be special.
Anyone else feel like ACN gives us too little PTO? Compared to other firms, seems like we get peanuts
Take a break from this crazy world and curl up with a good book! Not something you have to read, but something that you want to read because you chose it. Take your brain and imagination on a wonderful vacation to fantasy land. I'm doing some time travel to get away and dream. I hope you try it. Here's to coping skills!
Have all year end decisions been communicated? My counselor is on PTO so I have not heard anything...

Two weeks of PTO... Finally!! Later client ✌🏻️
Have some friends who quit consulting without anything lined up. All found jobs in 2-3 months and took time off to travel. Wish I had their positive attitudes bc I think it's a big success factor!
Family of five flying across the country for a week-long vacation next month. Looking for good/cheap luggage options and for ways to maximize space in our luggage. Four adults and one 11 year old if that helps. TIA!
With my offer letter can I negotiate benefits? I am hoping to increase my PTO as I have been saving PTO from my last job to use to visit my family in Europe. Also, I see that the 401k math is very low and wonder if that is negotiable. I have no signing bonus either and was wondering if that should be on the table.
When you couldn’t reach your goal weight by vacation (typical last 5lb slump) and now are 6lb heavier post trip…at least the food was bomb 🤷♀️ i really gotta get out of the mindset though that I need to lose weight cuz honestly based on pics/mirror reflection, I feel and look fine but the scale number depresses me. When do we stop caring about that??

Mother in law constant interference has caused friction between me and my partner. She is over possessive about him to the extent how he should be fed , what he should be fed, what he should think and how he should perceive things, when he shd be happy and when he shd feel hurt everything is communicated to him in a subtle way. He gets influenced too.

Welcome back to “There Used to be Perks,” where we look back fondly on things that used to be fun or nice about working in advertising, but are now long gone. Tonight: your cell phone bill...paid...every month— “because you were using it for work.” Just PAID. For you. By the agency. Oh sure maybe you had to circle the calls on the bill. But sometimes not. You just...didnt pay for your cell phone. Thank you for joining us on “There Used to be Perks.” We’ll see you next time.
