Pwc - new joiner, how do we do vacation this week? I got the email but 2 days of vacation Monday and Tuesday is that the same as floating holiday? Or so I use a different WBS for floating holiday?
VC guy in SF running one of their portfolio companies reached out. I straight up said I’m looking for a job. I’ve now got a meeting with him bolted on to my upcoming holiday to the US. How to nail it?
What happens to our vacation/holiday hours after the fiscal year ends? We don't lose them do we?!
Do you guys sometimes think you’re not living life right? Like you’re some type of robot. I think the 40 hour work week + PTO constraints is a bit much.
At Deloitte can you have negative PTO hours? Trying to understand policy because I heard it’s different from firm to firm
Accenture 🐠 : Can you take PTO during 2 week notice period? Just relized that I will be paid only for 240Hrs of PTO rest be gone
Proposal touch point near EOD. I will be PTO tomorrow and unavailable most of the evening. Does it make sense to still attend or should I just decline the invite? I’m kind of nervous saying that I’ll be unavailable for action items. First proposal so sorry for the newb question.
Holiday party has a plus one and is at huge ride/game venue, chill to bring a homie or is that meant for significant others only?
Office is dead. Everyone is on vacation.
Once again it’s Saturday night and all my friends from Deloitte and Accenture are either going out or going on vacation together. Meanwhile I can’t go bc I work for PwC who pays dirt. Lovely
The holiday emails are ....
I’m miserable at my job but want to wait it out until I take an upcoming vacation in July. Is it stupid that I’m not looking for jobs when I’m completely bored, uninspiring and irritated everyday?
Everyone and their mama has been raving about air fryers. They said it's a healthier alternative to deep frying. Any recommendations? I want one for my holiday meals. I am currently looking at this one on Macys. https://www.macys.com/shop/product/crux-6.3-quart-digital-touchscreen-electric-air-fryer-created-for-macys?ID=11304871&pla_country=US&CAGPSPN=pla&cm_mmc=Google_SH_PLA_Cookware-_-GS_Cookware_PLA_Crux-_-293719126716-_-pg1050674350_m_kclickid__kenshoo_clickid__KID_EMPTY_1546922786_61770717587_293719126716_aud-37409341359
What do you all do once you hit hours and want to coast (or just not work at all) for the rest of the year? I recently took vacation so feel weird taking another back to back, and my existing matters are still busy. Should I just do it? Could probably take 3 weeks completely off and still hit hours.
Looking to hire a full-time junior designer in Chicago. Multinational agency, cool clients, all the benefits and unlimited PTO. Message me with q’s and for more info.
When you don't have an Uber receipt to show when you left the corporate holiday party because you walked home...and you have no idea what time you got home.
Has anyone in partner ranks been able to take an actual, fully disconnected vacation of at least a full work week in the last 18 months? Genuinely curious.
IBM lost their contract with National... go figure. Options now are Hertz or Avis. Any suggestions?
Quick vent: I really hate when people aren’t inclusive! I invite my roommate out all the time with my friends and we have a great time. I haven’t received a single invite back. She definitely has more friends than I do in the area so it would help me out a lot to be invited & included to form a friend group. I even tried to invite myself and still no inclusion. Ugh.
I received a promotion (including a title and pay bump), but I’m already underpaid as it is. I’m grateful! But I was hoping for more. Any advice on how I go about asking for more? Is a counter offer letter a thing when it’s a promotion?
Got my feedback from one of the project on the performance website. It doesn't reflect all the work stream I have worked on. Should I contact the reviewer to correct?Or does it not matter that much?
Been an art director for 12 months but grown in my role significantly & my boss told me my next promo was “political”. I’m managing well over 1.5M a year, 9 brands. Functioning with little to no oversight on a day-to-day basis, w/ only strategy checkins with my CD. 100% client facing. I’m managing 1 direct report and from 2-8 copy and art freelancers at any time. I feel like all my stretch goals are ACD focused. Yet still need SAD before ACD. Does this sound like an art director? Pharma agency.
TFW the client takes away your tools written in the contract, but your leadership is dragging their feet on the change order. *wears this to team dinner*
What are EY's bonus rules for CFE/CPA?
SPG Hotels in India screwing me over by charging mandatory fees and taxes for NYE dinner when I can go party at better places for half the price. #thanksbutnotthanksspg
My interview for an internship lasted over an hour. Good or bad sign? It was more of a conversation than anything...
I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
Great vibes with girl after 2nd date, definite potential for more. However, noticed that she adjusted her age by either 1 or 3 years on dating app, and just confronted her about it. She wrote it off due to Covid year, but I find the lack of honesty and real remorse concerning. What would you do?
What do hiring managers care about more MBAs or experience…both is not an acceptable answer.
How are most teachers plan on giving assessments to students who are remote learners? My school is everyday half-day for students (guardians) who chose to be in school. All other students are remote learners every day. That means I had classes with students who are physically there as student to are there through Google meets. I'm just trying to see what other teachers are doing to balance the two types of learners and how give fair assessments.....
Any recommendations for pet insurance? Is it really worth it? And if so, what are some of the best ones?
If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?
What are some reasons to decline a second interview? I recently interviewed for an Internal Audit role but I didn’t feel like the pay range matched the job. This IA role is for a small credit union and you’ll be the only IA. It’s a new role they came up with this year as different departments would have a a role at different audits. Their pay range is 65K - 75K DOE.
