Finally leaving big 4 consulting after over a decade! Decent 25% comp jump going into tech, but also increased my 2022 total comp by $65,000 between PTO payouts, signing bonuses and increased salary. It’s not a cakewalk but it’s worth it in the end.
Considering a move to NTT Data in a healthcare consulting role. Mixed reviews in the bowls. Major concerns are bench policy, staff aug roles, 2 week PTO, and high turnover due to job dissatisfaction. Recruiter and mgr had great things to say around growth and opportunity, which doesn’t align with feedback from the bowls or Glassdoor.
Understanding things have changed there in the last few months, I need un-biased advice from fellow fish who have recently joined or can speak to recent changes
Planning a honeymoon in Greece for September. Any recommendations on islands? It’s a 2 week vacation. Some time will be spent on Mykonos for the sake of a specific resort but other than that I have nothing else planned.
No Tipping All-Inclusive Resorts
Does anyone have any suggestions about places where you can stay without the hassle/expectation to be tipping everyone all the time?
I hate having to give tips for everything when I'm on vacation. I don't want to be carrying cash around. In fact, I don't even want to be thinking about it. I just want to relax!
To be clear, this isn't about the money. It's about the hassle. I'd just rather pay an upfront gratuity fee that covers all of tips for the entire stay.
Recos for warm vacation spots that are close to as easy as an all inclusive to plan but is not actually an all inclusive? Something that has easy access to a beach and somewhat of a town/village with restaurants and stuff? I’m super tired and need to recharge but hate all inclusives.
How do you guys find time to interview at other companies? Do you take PTO or make up an excuse like a dentist's appointment? Recruiters want to meet but want to do it on a 1-2 notice. Help?!
Is this a good deal or not. $93,600/year” “BENEFITS “ medical, dental, vision(30%60%90% after CYD) 80hrs vacation time after 1year of employment, it cannot be carried over year to year, nor will it be paid for it upon termination same for sick time which will be granted after 90 days of employment. Max 240 hours. Paid for the 6 holidays but if happen to work holidays will get paid 8 hrs for another day off during the same pay period. No 401k
Do they decorate for the holidays where you work? I work at a pretty large hospital and they do the eaves and the trees outside, but I'm thinking of making some paper snowflakes and maybe getting a mini tree for the nurses station. Good idea? I don't want to offend anyone just thought it could bring some holiday cheer as corny as that is.
Are there any other Project Managers who have ADHD ? What type of PM work do you do? Outside of it just not being what I want for a career path if I advance / I don’t find it rewarding anymore, I have greatly struggled as I’ve moved up and now with the simplest things. I’m turning in my notice this week because of how badly it affects my well being especially the last year and a half. I plan to take a long time off and look for something once I have resigned. Any insight is appreciated.
I have 32k miles with THY that are about to expire. Normally I'd go ahead and book a flight, but I can't project which countries might be locked down again 5-6 months from now (haven't accrued enough PTO to travel in near future). The only other way to keep the miles is to pay $10 per 1000 miles, as far as I know. Are there other strategies?
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Negotiating a new offer, they can’t meet my salary requirement and they already have unlimited PTO. Is it possible to negotiate a shortened vesting period for retirement benefits? I lost $15k from my previous company match because I left before 3 years. Appreciate any advice on that or other benefits I should consider.
You’re either not valuable to your company and/or your job isnt that important if you’re able to take PTO and not at least send some e-mails.
How is the job market for all of the MBBs when it comes to experienced analyst-equivalent hires? I recently got referrals in for all three but wondering if I should I spend time over the holidays on case and behavioral prep even though I don’t have an interview yet. I’m a bit burned out so would love to spend the holiday time to recharge but will certainly put prep first if I need to do so. Any insight would be so tremendously appreciated!
“Didn’t you just come back from PTO?"
Make it thru Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur... now just Sukkos twice and we’re clear for 2019! Happy holidays all!
Tell me if this is selfish or not. I adore my family, but since they're doing a very lowkey Christmas situation this year, I really would rather take a weeks vacation on my own. Obviously the holidays are about spending time with those you love, but I'm tired! And I see my entire family at least once a month for a group dinner. Am I a bad daughter/sister if I choose vacation this one time?
Hey guys, do you have a knack for planning stuff. You may have a hidden gift for Project/Program Management. The skill sets needed are similar to planning a move or a vacation. Those include pre-planning activities, budgeting, collaboration, negotiating etc.
Looking for ways other than litigation to penalize fraudsters for cancelling transactions and stealing “pending” monies. Can this information be given to the credit bureau in order to negatively affect their credit? Or, anything else that can be done to hammer down on these types of issues, bad debt as well.
Anyone else in “I’ll do my job description and nothing more” mode? I’ve gone above and beyond for my company for a while, and all I got was my quarterly bonuses and remote work taken away without explanation. Owner says he wants more “team building” from his florida mansion (we’re in the northeast). Half the company remote, half the company in the office with 0 explanation why. You want us cracking new accounts? Banging out 100 calls a day? PAY US ACCORDINGLY. Don’t piss on us and call it rain

Once I’m out of bed and working, I can get motivated and work through the day. I tend to have very productive 3 PM - 12 AM. I just wish that I could get myself to pull that back six hours.
