Deloitte: When on PTO and traveling internationally (not for work) do you just turn on the international plan on your work phone? I need to be reachable/able to check emails.

Seems like a stupid question but I also know it’s $10/day and if I’m on personal travel not sure if the firm wants to eat a couple weeks of that.

Does your hotel not have wifi? You’re a senior, there is nothing so pressing that you need to be checking your emails when you’re traveling abroad for what I’m assuming is vacation.

Is there no WiFi where you are going? You’ll probably need to check emails 2-3 times a day max, and a lot of coffee shops have free WiFi (also hotel lobbies).

I turn it on if I need to be reached but prefer not to work while on PTO so it needs to be absolutely necessary

I just joined a late-stage pre IPO startup and I’m not very happy with the work. The work itself isn’t exactly what I was sold during my interviews, and my manager took pto before onboarding me. I’m now left without any guidance, but he sends random ad hoc tasks my way without having given me the context. (Eg talk to xx and do yy 3-4x a day). I’m also working through learning work that’s already been done by mgr, but no one on the team really understands his work/models well. Are my frustratiins

Started 6 months ago at my first job after college and, after doing work for the MD on my PTO (no one else on team was willing to work on their PTO) he has started to call me to do random small tasks for him (put logos on slides and pdf them, take notes in random meetings,etc). The SA on my team found out and says he probably views me as his secretary and I should be upset. Is this really a bad thing? Doing any work for a MD seems positive to me, but am I just naive?
