Used to spend all my weekends with this guy I was seeing last year. Things have been so rocky this year, we barely meet. He wants to take some time off and concentrate on himself and being more active before committing to anything. He has literally filled all his weekends with sports and meetups there after. He tells me about everything he does honestly but I can’t help but feel replaced.
I saw a retail establishment fully decked out in Christmas decorations a few days ago. I, too, love the holiday season. But it's not the season yet!!
Pwc - new joiner, how do we do vacation this week? I got the email but 2 days of vacation Monday and Tuesday is that the same as floating holiday? Or so I use a different WBS for floating holiday?
Going to be in Madrid for the next 4 days on vacation. Any recommendations?? Used points so will be staying at the Westin Palace Madrid.
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.
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.
Since the last day of month is a federal holiday (Memorial Day), will direct deposits hit the following day?
Can anyone from PwC audit practice share the holiday timeline/firm shutdown schedule during December-January? I am about to join the firm but don’t have all the details yet. Planing a trip during Christmas time. Thanks in advance.
Given the state of the world, are you keeping your vacations in tact that you planned way in advance? In the event that this is over, is it irresponsible to take a vacation?
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???
How is PTO taxed when you leave the firm?
I’ve been with ACN for 3 years now and want to start job hunting to see what’s on the market. Any tips for the interviews? (best presenting myself, salary questions etc) Haven’t done any in the past 3 years; forgot how it felt like..
What’s starting salary for EY SM? 160?

Hi, does one need to know how to swim to do scuba diving? I can float and swim on shallow side but not in deep end but I really want to get a beginners diving certification. Please advice
Latest word on the street for any provider systems hiring? Seems most are still on a freeze for non-clinical roles. I was laid off during Covid a few months ago and honestly don’t want to go back to consulting. Most of my experience is in provider work (rev cycle, operations) and have reached out to my network but looks like I’ll have to wait it out much longer, or try a new industry.
Honest question...why is there so much negativity in this profession? in my experience the culture is so resentful and self deprecating, why? Seems like one of the most toxic corporate cultures I know
MBB 🐠, if you could do it all over again, would you? Thinking about getting MBA and would love some honest feedback. TIA!
Individual thank you emails or sometimes address 2 people on one? Or just hit each person with a quick thanks? A shop surprised me with way more interviews than expected & I want to thank them for their time.
What happens now if anyone gets laid off? Trump.will.ptobably assess h1b shortly . Go back to our country am guessing?
Sometimes people don't really understand the interviewer expectation and fail at interviews not because of their subject knowledge but their lack of demonstration skills ☝ What 🐟 🐠 🎣 🐡 Fishes think on it🙂

Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
what do you wear on production when you’re pregnant? my wardrobe is very black and utilitarian and I don’t wear dresses. also, since everything has been remote, the team is about to find out I’m 7 months pregnant...
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
How do you break into PE Ops from a mid tier consulting firm like Accenture or the big 4?
