If I have 30 days of PTO accrued, when I leave will I get 4 or 6 weeks paid out? I don’t do math outside of work.
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.
What’s the first vacation you want to take when this quarantine is all over. Either gonna be skiing in Jackson Hole or a trip to France and the UK depending on the season. ✈️🤞🙏
How much more should someone ask for if a competing firm has less pto (7 days), less 401k match...401k doesnt kick in until 1st yr is over. Initially asked for 140k.
Anyone taken time off to just create? Focus on your portfolio and health? I feel like I’m a content-rut, but I want to challenge myself. I miss the rigor of school.
I literally can’t get myself to give a crap AT ALL. I used to be a stellar associate and proactive and on top of it. In the last year, I’ve been dropping the ball, not billing, just don’t care. I’m afraid I’m just done with it. Any tips? I’m a 5th year
I pack for a vacation in under 1 hour but for some reason I takes me all night to pack for a shoot because of our weirdo clients getting in my head about not looking homeless 😢 anyone else feel me??
If I put in my two weeks and the last week is PTO I already had planned (at an unlimited PTO firm) will they just tell me they're not paying me for the last week?
I think if someone has served the country, they should be granted Veteran's Day off as a paid holiday. Not forced to use their accrued PTO, or sick day. It's a holiday they earned for the rest of their lives. Call me crazy but this makes sense to me.
has someone traveled to Azores from the US? looking for vacation destinations that are road less traveled
Lots of “deloitte days” and extra days off this year. Do other big 4 do this? It’s been nice to get extra vacation
I can't stop being angry and disappointed in myself. I'm on PTO and decided to take care a few of the household chores. I multi-task all of the time and can't help it. I forgot that I turned on the water to fill up the ultility sink in the basement and ran back upstairs to do something else. Well 2 hours later as I turn on the shower, I wonder why it's not getting hot. Then I remembered the basement. Obviously it overflowed and I had .25 inches of water on the floor (concrete) Cont
I always get “jokingly” hassled for taking time off. I put my PTO in 6 months ago, sorry you decided to schedule a meeting during these three specific days I’m gone🤷🏽♀️
Infosys reached to me today offering a new role… after some research, not interested. PTO: too low (10 days), 401k 3%, Comp. and bonuses seem low from employee feedbacks. Cannot take a role with higher responsibilities and low comp and PTO lol
Slight vent: I had saved up a bunch of PTO to travel a ton this year (long-term project) which obviously got kicked to the dust and I have a bunch expiring this year because of that. Was looking forward to next year (including a family trip that’s been on the calendar for 2 years), but 3 people just left the team, only 1 will be replaced, and 3 more announced parental leave in spring. I have go lives through February and feel like I’m sprinting a marathon and will never get a break now.
Fishbowl parents! Did you take the full parental leave? How much time off? Did you feel there were any repercussions? First time dad here - currently on paternity leave and loving it!
My department had some turnover in leadership and I am meeting with my new lead for a 1:1. Any advice? I’m not as close to him as I was to our old lead, but now he is responsible for my promotion etc
Was just contacted for a portfolio operations role at a Private Equity firm. Does anyone know what this role would entail? What are the exit ops?
Is Huge as bad as everyone on here says? How about the Toronto office? Safe from the shit?
My 4 YO takes riding lessons at a small barn outside of the city. I hopped on a horse there recently for old time's sake, but haven't really ridden in years. A casualty of the legal profession, along with the rest of my hobbies from my former country life. His instructor asked me if I'd be willing to get back in the saddle. Part of me is like, this is the change I need. It will help me lose this COVID-15lbs. But I'm also terrified and I have no idea why. (cont)
What is your go to end of interview question?
Has anyone worked on R-shiny? Who widely used is this? doesn't seem like to go-to for data viz, but client insists on using this. I not well versed in R so maybe Im missing something here. Thoughts ?
ZS 🐠! A friend with 10+ years experience in the pharma industry would like a referral. Can anyone help him out?
Currently making 100K in Big 4 Strategy arm (Monitor, Strategy&, K-Strat, Parth) with 2 YOE in high COL city and live at home to save on rent. Is finance analyst at Google for for ~ 120 total comp ok?
"The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people's expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn't care if you are a white person who likes black people;...
Any internship leads/opportunities in Process Industries, or Engineering firms for Chemical Engineering graduates pursuing their MS?
I really want to work in an office again. I like putting stuff on the walls, talking with people, the serendipity of things. I think it benefits the work. Who else is looking forward?
Had a phone screen with BCG recruiter today. As a current Big 4 manager with a specific industry and function focus for ~7 years, when asked if I prefer Generalist or Expert track, I said I’m ok with either, because I love selling (Generalist) but I’m also very interested in continuing my existing focus (Expert). She said she can mark me down for both. What are everyone’s thoughts on not necessarily having a firm one-or-the-other answer?
What are your thoughts on Adcolor Futures? Have you heard of it? Is it worth applying to?
“Picking up” the phone and calling someone vs emailing or texting is a hot topic. I am GenX who prefers setting up time to talk and preferring text or email unless phone time is booked. My GenX boss gets LIVID that my team is not an off-the-cuff phone culture. She has a sales background and mine is straight delivery/implementation. Just venting.
Ex-Consulant here that now works for a big name Real Estate Investment Trust. Saw on LinkedIn that EY has an America’s REIT Leader. Didn’t know that much attention was paid to the REIT space. Are there really consulting teams dedicated to the REIT space in the Big 4? Love working for a REIT and would love to jump back to consulting if there were teams dedicated to the industry.

Is there a status challenge with United that KPMG is offering? I was remote last year and lost my gold status and have been traveling group 3 :(
Lol my firm halted all sales travel but continued client travel. Just waiting for someone to get sick so I can sleep in my own bed for more than 8 nights a month
