What’s the maximum PTO payout if I quit? I’ve got a ton of hours saved up. Like 8 weeks. Will I get all of it?
I’m > 1 year in and am already noticing there is no such thing as PTO because everyone still works during PTO. Is this the same in industry?
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 tried Glamsquad in NYC? Debating buying their 3 blowout package for holiday party season!
How do you feel about your firm's benefits package, on retirement (401K), PTO, parental leave, and health insurance? Curious to see whether and how you think your firm needs to make adjustments.
Hi 🐠- need help in deciding a place for vacation with my SO- planning for a 5-6 day vacation (Europe preferably). Looking at Iceland, Spain and Italy (will do only 1 country). Anyone have recos?
Currently have my vaca. balance maxed out, but I'm going to take a 3 week vacation in 2 months. Anyway to "spend" my vacation in advance w/o actually taking it so I can continue to accrue more vaca???
If I put in my two weeks notice, can I just not come into work some days? They can’t do anything if I’m already quitting right? I assume it’d come out of my PTO
PwC 🐠, can you not roll over vacation days? What's this with losing holiday time by June 30? Please help me understand- how do you know if you have holiday balance? Thus isn't different from vacation
How long is acceptable to push a start date back? I need some time off between opportunities to refresh
Technology has made our life easier but also so much harder. In our parents era when they went on vacation there was no way of finding them so they enjoyed their days off… Nowadays is “you can go on vacation but have to be available if needed”… bro what? I feel like the partners at my firm are specialists in this regard - went to play a round of golf and had 4 calls with a partner. Get lost.

Every time I walk past Spirit gates, I get really good vibes. People waiting at those gates might not be frequent fliers, but they look so happy. Thats what vacation does to people i guess
How are firms handling the economic downturn in terms of billable hour requirements for associates? Are annual billable requirements being updated or mitigated in any way? Curious to see how other firms are handling this issue, and also afraid of not being able to take any time off until 2021 😳
I recently received an offer from a new firm. I informed my managing partner ab it. He offered me slightly more $ to stay but still didn’t even come close to what I’d be making. I then gave him my 2 weeks notice and accepted the offer with the new firm.￼ All amicable. I had 2 vacation days scheduled, which the firm knew about for months and happened to fall within my last 2 weeks. While out last week, they then told me to not worry ab coming back in and that I am terminated. Thoughts on this?
Any moms here living in WA state and availed the 12 weeks parental leave( baby bonding time off) offered by the state recently?
Project schedule drastically changes 24/7 yet they need to know PTO way in advance. I need to do all day on-site final rounds but cant schedule interviews w/o knowing project schedule. What to do?
Got interviewed in top companies through third party recruiters and now waiting for final decision & offer from all 3. But my goal is to get full time role which is hard due to my OPT status. Advice?
CRT is over and I was wondering if PwC will layoff people this year in Cyber as certain markets are not performing well.
Now that i'm back to the classroom, I realize how out of shape/sedentary I have been and I'm absolutely exhausted. How do I get back my energy/ get back in shape... but gradually bc I'm old!!!!
If I have $375k in my 401k at 35, is there any reason to keep contributing? I leave $375k alone for 30 years and that’s going to already be a decent retirement
401K question - if I max my contribution this year and then join another firm - can I still contribute and max that one out as well - within the same fiscal year? Or is it just allowed to max out overall total within a year irrespective of company
Soon going to stop bothering w/ Uber. In DC, at 5:45, closest 🚗 was 15 min away. At LGA Term A, 🚗 15 min away kept grabbing my request when others were 4 min away. Who else offers black cars?
Hi ladies. I work in IT consulting and we don’t typically have to put notes in for billable hours, but a few weeks ago my boss asked me to start entering notes, about what exactly I was working on for client A,B,and C. I just said sure and didn’t ask why. I found out today from other colleagues that no one else was asked to enter notes in for their time. What’s a good way to ask my boss why the new change? I’d at least like to know if I did something wrong so I can improve.

Anyone have any book recommendations for real estate investing? There’s a lot of crap out there. Looking for a more serious book for someone who already understands finance and real estate basics.
When we’re all comparing/complaining about hours at the end of the year are we including pro bono hours in that total? I’m nearing 2050 billables for the year but I have another 500 pro bono hours that should be added on. At the same time, I keep hearing about all these people straight billing 2,400+. Trying to determine if I should’ve tried to pick up more billable work to stay in the middle of the pack (i.e. not interested in partnership, just trying not to get canned).
How do you get over a failed effort? I did learn a lot from this project and know I would do better next time. Despite that, I am still depressed and anxious over this.
I landed a first interview at my dream company and role, but I received a rejection after. All I had was a phone screening interview, I can’t understand how I could have been cut just from this? (CONT
I need some inputs on if I should pursue a MBA. Goal that I would use MBA for is getting into VC, only a undergrad internship in that space, or doing a search fund and like micro PE. I would consider corporate VC too. Alternative is to focus on meetups to meet founders, getting a better job and hit the accredited investor status so I can invest with angels. Undergrad was a top business school, so I feel strong with finance and other functions.
