Just saw the trailer for Santa Inc. Funny premise, will watch with an open mind. Still seemed closer to an attack on Christmas as a holiday than poking fun at Christmas specials. Seth Rogen and Sarah Silverman are Jewish. No issue there; they’re free to make the movie. But imagine if it were Mel Gibson and Hanukkah instead. If somehow greenlit, there would be outrage (rightfully so). I don’t take offense with Santa Inc., but I can’t help but notice a double standard.
For anyone that resigned without an offer lined up and took time off, what did you tell your team as a reason for leaving? I’m just not happy with my company but don’t want to jump into something new yet.
If you could ask for anything at your firm - what would you ask for? Caveat: something that is a stretch but realistic. Background: There is some current turmoil and I have been identified as someone they want to stay through it and wait for it to get better. We don’t have many females at the top. I don’t qualify for equity based on current metrics but the metrics used have lots of room for improvement and the current metrics could be “ignored” for me potentially. (Cont)
What would you wear to a law association holiday party? It’s not a sit down dinner - more of a mingle, hors d’oeurves sort of event.
Anyone else putting their two weeks before the Holiday Big 4 Break? Currently in busy season and worried how mad they will be. Going to a compeititor so not sure how long they will let me stay. Anyone have experience doing this?
Anyone struggled with PMS associated depression? I took a day off because I could not bring myself to get out of bed!Feel paralyzed with guilt & work stress, losing my limited time off every month.
What are the rules about your two weeks overlapping with holiday time off? Is that a really bad look?
Two parter, maybe three. First year partner looking to move out of Illinois. 1. What to partners typically spend on their house (wife doesn't work)? Something in the 1-2mm range seems reasonable, but maybe over the top also, curious to hear opinions 2. Considering moving to the Orlando area, we vacation there a lot with young kids. Interested to hear any POVs you may have Happy Holidays
How long did it take you to say you love your boyfriend? Maybe it’s the holiday season coming around but I’m finding myself getting close after only 4 months.
Here’s a radical idea: don’t bother me on PTO.
Work holiday party dress ideas?
Is this an acceptable out-of-office reply? “Thank you for your email. I am currently “in the office” (WFH, not PTO), but I am urgently occupied in observance of CyberMonday. I will respond to your email as soon as I close these deals. If you need urgent assistance, please contact one of my more responsible colleagues, or a competing firm. Thank you for your patience and understanding.”
What is your year end holiday plan, if any?
I’m not going home for holidays this year because of travel restrictions. I’ve been seeing someone for ~6 months. I’ve met their family (who are local), but haven’t spent much time with them. We haven’t discussed holiday plans, so not sure what to expect. Should I expect to be invited? Do I ask / hint? Do I need to get presents for everyone, or just for the SO?
What is the best way to book vacation (ideally bundles - flights, accommodation etc.) for Maldives?
Job A or B? A = 135k normal hours 50ish a week. 15 days PTO. Better room for growth / advancement. B = 115k 30-35 a week - unlimited PTO. Only person in my department, less growth.
What does PTO look like at OW/LEK? How many days and can you actually use it all? Oliver Wyman LEK Consulting
Aight holiday gifts/tips for staff (mainly my PA) - I had heard as junior that it’s $100 per class year, so for example if ur a 3rd year it’s $300 to your PA. Is that the norm for your firm too, and same rule all the way up to senior year (so 6th year is $600…?) I love my PA but this year with WFH I really did not give her any work, but also we all get paid more what with covid bonuses so it seems extra grinch to not pay out. What’s your plan?
Does PwC have tomorrow off for an extended holiday weekend? I am waiting on an offer and not sure how the holiday weekend impacts things. PwC
Any other single people do a photo Christmas/Holiday card with their dog? Or am I the only one? 🤷🏼♀️
Hi members what is pan india remote working means by capgemini, is it for covid times or after that too.Capgemini
So EY LAW said there are risk traveling to Puerto Rico without a visa stamp even though it’s a territory and that travel should be kept to absolute necessary ones at this time. I understand from a lot of threads that there are no threats traveling to PR immigration wise but is it wise to disregard what they are explicitly asking one to do? They also asked to keep travel advisories in mind if I still plan on traveling there.
Awesome "therapy dog" in my row this morning and I get to pet him the whole flight. I'm going to call this a small win for a dog person in Consulting. 🐶

Thoughts on MGO or Withum? Received great fully remote offers for a tax senior and tax supervisor role from both but kind of unfamiliar with the two. Coming from my current role as a tax senior with 6 years experience in public.

Plz release bonus info. Thx.
I need advice on a late in life career pivot. I am spoiled - well-paid, but will never receive a raise above 1% or a decent bonus (I've hit the ceiling). My new boss is horrible, and 1/2 of the team left in the first year of her tenure. Staying is my last resort. My limitations: I need a high-level legal job (Assistant GC) in the LA area. I specialize in intellectual property law and global procurement. Do I hire someone to help with the search? The job boards have limited opportunties for me.
I just came back from my parental leave and Partner shoved on my face saying I need to hit 3.5M combining sales and managed revenue as I am SM now(cont)
Posting for the discussion. Staying for the inevitable s*** show. Doctor editorial from the Lancet (a very prestigious and respectable medical journal)…
New AWMA... curious to know what a reasonable salary expectation is and what the growth looks like for an associate within a growing ensemble. For context, background is more analytical, taking CAIA level 2 in a couple weeks, then plan on pursuing CFA.
