Any recommendations for a single diver going to Bonaire over the Xmas-new year holiday? I’d like to do a good bit of shore diving but would need a dove buddy.
Is it reasonable to ask for three weeks before joining a new company? I was thinking a two week notice and a week vacation to take a breath. What do you think ?
My husbands mom lives with us and we usually get along fine, but today I am over it. WFH means being with her 24/7 and after the holiday's I am just done. I wish it was just the 2 of us again. Can I force his sister to take her? I want my house back, but I also don't want to be the crabby wife.
I’ve been waiting for security clearance since July and just found out I’m pregnant after trying for a year. I’m hoping clearance will be granted in early spring 2021 and I can start work soon after. Thankfully taking unpaid time off isn’t a big issue (won’t be eligible for FMLA or parental leave), but worried about timing and telling HR & my supervisor. I’m planning to tell them once I start; know timing isn’t ideal and stressed about starting off on the wrong foot. Any advice?
Best family vacation destination you've been to in the past year or two? Something covid-friendly but that will appeal to my wife and kids [son, 22 and daughter, 18] thanks!
Hi Rachel! Holiday question - How should I balance my personal “wants” vs. family obligations during the holidays? I am exhausted, want to stay home and rest, do my hobbies, while SO wants to fly to the Midwest to spend time with his large extended family. I would like to set expectations but am unsure how to approach the conversation.
Sooo ready for the holiday party on Friday.
Checking in emails during time off, yes or no? It helps me to relax knowing everything is fine. Looking for feedback, thanks
Hello! What is the vacation policy at Deloitte? Additionally, are there any international rotation opportunities in the Strategy vertical (primarily Strategy Architecture/ Strategy Design and Execution)? TIA! Deloitte
Reminder to everyone: use your 2021 vacation time. Don’t let it pass you by just because you’re not traveling. Take a long weekend once a month to nap and eat chips in sweat pants all day. We all need to do our part to normalize self care, and sitting at home doing “nothing” is just as worthy of a vacation day as pina coladas on the beach.
Everyone’s holiday party looks so lit on snap 😩😩😩 ..hey 🐠 s can I crash one of your holiday parties, I mean we’re all consultants I can fit in.
Throughout pretty much my entire career, I've never taken a true extended vacation. I'm about to take nearly 2.5 weeks off and actually be mostly away from work to focus on my wife and kids. To be honest, I actually have some anxiety about it. Any sage wisdom from others on disconnecting?
I’m moving across the country (FL to CA) and I’ve decided I’m going to drive. My job is pretty flexible so I can work really whenever. What would be the most ideal way to drive across country and also work? Drive during the day (8-10 hrs), work a few hours at night? I’ll probably have to use some PTO aren’t I?
Unless you’ll be committing malpractice by taking time off, here’s a reminder: you can’t take care of your clients if you’re burnt out. Turn your phone off, you don’t owe anyone an explanation.
Last day at my agency is the same day as the holiday party. Going to tell everyone "thanks for coming, drinks are on the house." Best going away party ever.

Imagine you have enough cash to buy a house. Would you rather pay 100% cash or borrow, say, 20% and invest the unused cash in an ETF? Rationale for the latter: borrowing rate < LT stock market return.

Do you guys at BCG think it would be a smart decision to make a lateral move to PL from Big 4? Have great network and support at current company. The MBB brand, 20k increase in TC, and potential better exit opportunities would be reasons to move. Worried about the challenges of starting from scratch at BCG, proving myself as IC in first few projects, and probably a worse WLB. Would love any insights TIA!
Which company would you choose in the Bay Area - Zynga or Fitbit? Reason? If none is better feel free to say..
