Making the move to BCG as a lateral associate hire, start date in mid-May. I’ve had plans to take a summer trip in early June with friends all year long, how acceptable is it to take 3 or 4 days of PTO within your first month at the firm?
Does the Rosslyn office have a holiday party... or do anything? Just moved here (not federal).
I joined my firm in November. I understand pro-rata holiday balance, but apparently they also pro-rata Bank Holidays, is this normal?
For example, I have 25 annual leave and 9 bank holiday allocation this year but I’m getting pro-rata for both. So my total pro rata balance is 22 normal vacation + 8 bank days. Effectively losing a day of normal vacation because my bank day allocation has been reduced.
How many vacation days does Accenture get?

I’m on month 3 of maternity leave and it’s been great being out of work but caring for newborn alone while husband is at work can be hard at times. I try to get out as much as possible but I’ve been thinking of starting daycare early.. early like next week. It’ll just be a few days a week at first until I go back to work which might be in June. I initially took time off till August but mama needs a breakkkk!! Anyone else go back to work early?
EY - What is the maternity leave breakdown? 2 weeks prior to DD + X disability + 16 weeks parental leave + up to 3 weeks PTO? Is the usual 6-8 week disability/medical separate from the 16 week bonding leave?
I’d like to know payroll calculations for vacation prorations ie for new hires and terminations for weekly payroll. Anyone can help ?
How do other consulting firms handle time and scheduling? there should be a better way to do it... Deloitte’s way is such that every week you have to confirm your time planned for that week (where you have a project or pto..etc) and then every week you also have to update your time sheet before Saturday. If you don’t do either you will get dinged 🤔
Email from RM: “having firm approved PTO and scheduled plans is not an excuse for not showing up to an inventory count if an emergency need arises.” Well good luck getting me to show up.
How does one get time on the bench. Been here for 4 years and have yet to be on the bench. How can a guy get some paid vacation time to do nothing at EY.
Hey guys, I have trouble taking vacation time. At my level, people are expected to be available for projects and not take a vacation when staffed. As a consequence, I end up with a week or so of CONTD
Is there anything better than the pre-flight glass of wine on a Thursday?! Maybe only the unexpected client holiday... 🍷🍷🍷🍸🍸🍸🍺🍺🍺
Called my mom tonight, the first thing I asked her is “Who do we have on the line?” I think I need to take a vacation.
How bad is it if I want to quit my job without having an offer with the current situation? I'm a 2nd year (rising senior) at a big 4 doing audit. Recently just getting too worked up and really don't have much motivation left for this job and environment. Don't think I want to make it through another busy season. Previously I wanted to try to make one more year... Idk if I'll be able to get a decent job in this pandemic? Maybe I can just quit, take some time off and study for CPA?

1 of 3 Posts About Market Tonight: Let's start off with Nasdaq 100. Apple and the large caps have been hit and since yesterday's record highs, we have had two short setups. Yesterday evening, a traditional 50% HWB short that went to the objective during Europe. It traded that short again in a retest at the open today before falling and creating an extension short. We tested the failure level this ext. short all afternoon and we currently sit on that short level. Short Term Bearish Below 10040.
