Did everyone take a day or two off to celebrate the holiday? Does anyone feel pressure to work on the holidays? It seems like major meetings get schedules with no thought about the high holidays

How do LMM/MM/UMM firms in Europe (London & EU) differ from NA in terms of WLB?

Know the opposite tends to be true in consulting - so is this a one off or true more broadly?

I have a holiday party with my group at work (small group of 20) and their plus ones. I invited the girl I'm seeing and she said yes. I want to bring her and show her off, and plus, she's a great conversationalist. We're seeing each other exclusively but haven't dtr'ed. I'm also new to this group so I haven't really come out to anyone yet because it hasn't come up in conversation. How would you introduce her? Are people gonna ask a bunch of questions if I just say "this is X?"

Any advice on how to handle an ECD in charge of your salary who says the only way to get a promotion or even a COL raise of any kind is through winning an award? Not consistently reliable and solid performance. Not keeping the client happy and profitable. “You either win an award, or all ya get is to keep your job.” And yes, I’m aware leaving is always an option, but eager for any other advice how to navigate.

EY High Deductible Health Plan vs Open Access Select (don’t have EY bowl access yet) I just started at the firm and am trying to pick my healthcare. I don’t really ever go to the Dr so I’m thinking of getting the High Deductible plan. My question is, what does it mean that it’s not a “national network (Is this a national network?: No)” but it’s “network coverage: see any licensed doctor”? Those seem to contradict. Also HSA vs FSA, as a healthy 26yo, which is right for me (High D only has HSA)
