Is this where we talk about how to low key dance to your favorite song at the holiday party but not be THE dancing negro? Lifelong problem.
What percentage of your day are y’all productively working? Lately I’ve been super distracted on my phone, personal email, holiday plans, posting about all the above on fishbowl, and I’m trying to figure out if it’s just me.
Spending the New Year’s holiday in Annapolis MD. Will be there for about a week. Any family-friendly recommendations on fun things to do? (The youngest in our group is 16). We’ll have our own car so we also don’t mind a good drive somewhere.
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?
Honest opinions please (even if negative/harsh!) - 2 week vacation in Q4 as a finance lateral that joined the firm in 2021. Will folks be raising eyebrows at this and judge me negatively?
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)
After you have given notice in California, do you still accrue PTO for the time between when you gave notice and when you depart the law firm?
I have PTO scheduled over Memorial Day but I am planning to put my two weeks this week. Should I tack on the additional days to cover the PTO time? Not sure how to handle the awkward timing
If you have 200 hours of PTO can you take 1 hour a day and end your day earlier for the rest of the year?
Happy holiday weekend FBers!! The next 4 days are yours!!! Go on that run, go on the hike, go on that boat, make breakfast, go on a date, it's your time!!! Enjoy yourself and decompress, love you all!

Does your resume bullet points matter at all if you just have public accounting experience. Like if you say you are tax in Big 4 and you do Federal does anything else really matter to employers?
Hey I have an ASC840 accounting question on this scenario - a target sold an asset 10 years ago for 10,000,000 and immediately leased it back. They recorded a deferred gain of $1M and amortized it over the term of the lease (still going) and letting that gain every month reduce the rent expense. Since this deal is cash free debt free shouldn’t we treat this as a debt like item? They received the cash in a prior period but we are now stuck with the payments. Debating how to quantify the adjstmnt
My skin isn't the best and with WFH - I have been doing the basics : moisturiser and sunscreen everyday which has really helped. Next year, I'm likely to be back full time in the office and on client site - and I want to do the bare minimum makeup wise. Can someone provide me your "bare minimum" routines and also - makeup/skincare brands! :)

Just received a survey from EY titled application preferences. I was rejected from a finance staff role a few weeks back after the first round pre recorded interview… this survey asked if I’m still looking for a job, start date, and location and practice preferences. Is this common and is EY still hiring? TIA!

Will a cover letter significantly help my application while applying to MBB? Or significantly hurt if I don’t attach one? There’s nothing unusual about my resume to explain (i.e. employment gaps, reapplication, etc) so my CL would primarily be explaining why I want to work for the firm.
