What is some spicy card games that I can play with bae on vacation? - Nothing boring please haha
You can tell what months I went on vacation. Struggle is real the last few months.... need to go vacation again soon and be more active and healthy.
Would you leave before busy season if you get an offer in December before the holiday break or would you negotiate your start date to try to stay through the busy season (6 weeks) due to staff shortages? I feel like I’m fucking my team over but also am so over audit and all the hours/work they’re giving me due to staff shortages.
I’m full time at an agency but have lots of unused vacation. Is it okay to freelance at another agency for a week or two?
Has anyone done the math about whether it is more cost effective to quit and cash out PTO or run out PTO and then quit in NYC?
This is convoluted. I knew two staffs, staff A was way better then staff B. Staff B got promoted and A didn't. From what I gather they have similar utilization, and staff A has better reviews.
How much of your PTO will expire on 12/31?
For the past month our house has been in a constant state of quarantine (kids under five) and now stomach flu has hit. My hours suck and I’m exhausted. I truly enjoy my job but life keeps getting in the way! I’ll be lucky if I hit 120 hours this month…can I take a vacation?
What are some utilization (billing hours) targets out there for roles with direct reports? If lower than individual contributors, do staffing levels reflect this? I.e. target is 65% billable, but still staffed at 40+ hours
Necessary to bring laptop while on vacation? It will be at a developing country and we'll be moving around cities a lot, so I'm not comfortable carrying it around. What do you guys usually do?
So... what is that new PwC utilization target for associates (to make tier 1)? I remember it is 80-something%, but I can't find the actual number anywhere.
Anyone else calculating billable hours needed for the rest of the month to hit utilization? 😅😭
I'm non compliant on CPE by a lot, when is the cutoff date to become current? June 30 or is it the same time that utilization is cut off?
How many vacation days have you been able to negotiate? Are you in a market that pays you for unused days? Do your days roll over to next year? If unlimited, how many do you actually take?
Hey Everyone, Can we reimburse OTT subscription (such as Netflix) from the 25K well-being subsidy? They mentioned Zomato and Swiggy, but not sure about OTT.

What salary to expect in London in tech consulting (2 years of experience)? Is there a pay difference onside/fully remote?
The desks in our classrooms are currently being arranged by administrators to provide six foot spacing for students. A teacher asked if a safe area with the same spacing will be provided for the teacher to teach from and the response was a simple "no". Very concerning.
How's a US CMA vs CIMA? Big 4 M in a finance transformation role who's become somewhat of a generalist who knows GBS and operating model design. Looking at this decision to study as an accelerator to exit consulting and having a safety net to do so. Preferred roles are in finance business partnering, program management or key account Mgmt (won't need a finance degree for the last two, I assume, but will help to drive conversations nevertheless).
I have my own practice what is the issue with taking some contract work as well part time? Would be a nice way to supplement income.

Can anyone share their experiences moving from living in a major city (NYC/SF/Chicago) after years to a really tiny town? Was it worth it? SO is interviewing for a position in middle of no where West Virginia as a surgeon for the hospital and surrounding area to pay off remaining med school debt $140k. I’m very nervous but I know financially it’s the right thing to do. For context, we have been living in NYC for 10 years, are an interracial couple, and have a 1 year old.
Unexpectedly leaving consulting for industry. Background isn’t in apparel but got an offer to join a large international apparel company as a product director and decided to make the jump. Current TC is $183k with annual bonus between 10-20%. New TC will be $200k, $50k signing, annual bonus of 15-40%, and progression path to VP. Will also be managing teams around the world, so opportunity to travel internationally, which is a perk in my book.

I currently work as a data scientist and was recently contacted about a FAANG product analyst position and encouraged to apply. since I am currently working as a data scientist (non-FAANG) and I feel like going from a data scientist position to a product analyst position is not a lateral move and wouldn’t be a good career move given my skills and experience (Ph.D, advanced stats/ml training). Anyone have any insight into the differences between FAANG DS vs. PA roles?
Is it true that Mckinsey doesn’t budge on their offers for a level regardless of current TC? Have a feeling I might be brought in Associate level which would be 165k + 15-20k bonus 1st yr, which is less than my current TC.
