My girlfriend and I really want to take vacation in early May but since I'm writing the CFE this year, would it be advisable to bank those days for studying? How much time do we get off to study?
What would you do with 2 weeks of vacation time?
Just finalized and booked my wife and I to a vacation in Europe for end of the year. Feels amazing to call it our honeymoon after 4 years of marriage ❤️ Delayed gratification and totally worth it.
EY- can vacation be taken in 4 hour increments? I want to take a half day one week because I need to leave out of town by 2p. Is that okay to charge 4 vaca and 4+ of other work?
I need perspective. I was scheduled for a bunch of spa services today before a vacation. Early in the morning, a spa lady calls me to reschedule. I tell her I can’t reschedule due to my job. She replies that she remembers me mentioning that from a previous appointment she “helped me rescue.” She never acknowledged knowing me prior to that comment. I was offended as it came across as judging my stress level and availability based on a service I received years ago. Did I get unreasonably upset?
Does anyone have to work tomorrow (not given Friday off for the holiday? Or is their company giving Monday off instead? Or no holiday at all?
Talent Acquisition teams: Are you all swamped and behind in your ATS processing right now? Asking as several colleagues and friends are actively submitting REFERRED applications for well-matched roles--but not hearing anything from HR. Is the need for talent real or is it overblown in the media? Or are a lot of TA people simply drowning at work or out on vacation right now? Tx for sharing if you are able! I'd like to give people some hope!

How much time off is appropriate to take off for a wedding? I want to take 3 days off on either side of my wedding (6 days total), plus a week the next month (7 days total) for my honeymoon.
Debating on investing on our first rental property. We were initially thinking about a rental in our area code (northern virginia) but all ideas/threads on here seem to indicate renting a beach front property on airbnb would be a win-win. Get mortgage covered over the summer and use it as a vacation home during winter. Is it that straightforward, what are we missing? Any reasons why we should not invest in a beachfront and instead stick to original plan? Tia!
Anyone hear any guidance on Federal client work yet? I don’t know who the “partial” govt shutdown applies to.... non-essential govt staff and contractors? Thanks. Sorry for the holiday question .

How are firms handling the economic downturn in terms of billable hour requirements for associates? Are annual billable requirements being updated or mitigated in any way? Curious to see how other firms are handling this issue, and also afraid of not being able to take any time off until 2021 😳
Do you care about more money at a chill shop or unlimited pto at a shop you’re burning out in, for less money?
When you're taking PTO and communicate you will be unreachable during that time due to personal reasons, so co-workers slide into your IG DMs with work chat because you don't respond via Slack or email 🥴
If you bought ADO additional time off and quit before you use it do you get it paid back?

Hi everyone! I'm looking to leave the consulting world but don't know where to start. I live in the DMV so everything is government and/government consulting. I'm looking for a place that has an international presence that will help me expand my world view. Also looking for a place where I feel that the intersection of my race and gender is a welcoming attribute....done with the microaggressive attitudes that leads to psychological torture the consulting world has to offer.

Second year litigation associate deeply considering starting my own practice. I feel like the solo life, although difficult, would be more justified than working at a firm where all of my work is controlled and stifled. Thinking about doing property/insurance law, some family law, and debt defense. NY. Thoughts? Pros? Cons? Am I crazy?

Is it okay to apply for another role with a company when already in interview process? Finished onsite for a FAANG role and recruiter mentioned I had positive feedback, but they are interviewing other folks before deciding and might take another couple of weeks. I saw another opportunity that aligns well with my experience posted. Should I go ahead and apply because this one might not come through? Or better to wait till I hear a Yes/No
I have a good offer outstanding from a tech firm (350K TC) and just got connected to a recruiter from one of the alternative investment firms (PE/Hedge/VC 35bn AUM) in NYC and it seems they want to go through the process with me. The base range given is 350K (excluding bonus and others). TC wise.. I'd like to try and see how far I can go but the tech firm is something that I really like. Is working at PE or hedge fund considered a prestige experience? YoE 14 all in consulting. Worth trying?

Another analyst (male indian) starting the same time as I is annoying the heck out of me. He never shares information, and always just repeats what I said in group messages, emails, zoom meetings (and prompts me to go first). He even stalks my calendar and compares the schedule overlap with our manager’s to figure out my meetings and schedule🙃. He also pushed me under the bus (he didn’t do a task even though i reminded him, yet he said I didn’t do it either together). What should I do

What options do I have to address these excess contributions?
How common is PIP in consulting? When someone is fired in consulting, is it normally preceded by a PIP, or is that the abnormal case? (Talking firms 1000+ people)
