Getting ready to come back to work after a week of vacation. Definitely feeling imposter syndrome and that I’m not smart enough to come back to Int’l tax. Anyone else ever feel this way about their jobs?
I’m having a major surgery this week and my sister told me she couldn’t make it because she does have enough vacation days left for the year and she wants to save them in case we go on vacation later in the year. I’m livid.
I'm on vacation, completely removed for the daily hustle; enjoying my time off. My wife called with an urgent request: she needs help with a deck that's due on Friday.

Need some inspiration...fam keeps asking for my holiday gift list and I have very few ideas for myself (34M). Have a few crutches I can lean on from wardrobe/hobbies (golf etc.). Anyone have any go-to, can’t-live-without items they recommend? (Budget <$500 per item)
I haven’t taken any vacation (other than one day here and there) all year. I’m taking two weeks off at the end of November and just told a partner and he was shocked (presumably at the length). Is this a faux pas?
does EY have significantly more vacation to use than Deloitte? I would get 22 pto plus 3 personal plus 10 family sick leaves at EY. deloitte has only 23? that too it sounds against utilization
I can’t stand people who are “taking time off” and are online doing work. Like, why?!? Have some boundaries for yourself. No one thinks you’re a hero for doing this.
Does anyone else ever feel like Deloitte is a cult? Just took some PTO and as much as I like it here, I'm starting to wonder if I am submitting to some cult and whether I should be concerned
Going on vacation to Europe. Looking for comfortable shoes that won’t hurt from walking all day, don’t look ugly (with nice dresses/clothes), and can perhaps even be considered for wearing to nice places (eg dinner, bars). Probably asking for a lot here but please let me know suggestions! Don’t want to take 4 pairs of shoes for a one week trip 🙂

Hi all - can anyone provide insight into compensation at Microsoft for product-focused Sr. business planner roles? Current compensation is ~$320k. Would ideally leave for 20%+ bump, but Im wondering if the leveling for this role is just too junior. Currently in the process and the recruiter did say that I should interview and they have made exceptions on $$ before, but I’m not sure I buy it. Microsoft

I’ve been interviewing for a position at EY . The role I applied for and was referred for is a Senior Consultant. However, when I’ve been receiving emails for interview scheduling confirmation I’ve noticed it only says Consultant. Is there a difference between Consultant and Senior Consultant at EY or are they the same? What’s the pay difference for both, if there is one? I just want to make sure they’re not trying to bump me down from the level I actually want to be considered for. Thanks!

Google Do solutions consultant interviews have a distinction between GCA, RRK, G+L or is this assessed across all of the interviews? I noticed most of my interviews were very similar with a combo of hypothetical and behavioral. No clear distinction overall but maybe some subtlety in a couple of questions.
