I will never understand grown ups that don’t have children that still choose to vacation at Disney
From reading this app. I realize we have it really well at EY. Deloitte doing major layoffs, KMPG has to come in at the crack of dawn, PwC well the hours..
Has anyone ever used the Samaritans? My therapist is on holiday and I badly need help. My boyfriend is ghosting me after a fight and I have the strong feeling it’s over and he’s just being cruel. My self esteem and outlook are zero. I’ve been told EAP is terrible for this so need a temporary option that is free or very cheap. I’m based in the UK in case that helps.
"Who was your plus-one to that previous company event? Bring them to the holiday party!" "Yeah I'd love to but we actually stopped seeing eac--" "Anyway can't wait to see them at the holiday party!"
Career Tip: Martyrdom is not rewarded in the workplace. Take your PTO. Take care of your body & your mind. Have interests and strong relationships outside of work so that you do not attach undue importance to the people at work. Protect your peace.
Hi all, I was a civil Engineer earlier and was laid off facing the Covid brunt and have upgraded to Data Science now, actively looking for a job to support my family. So if anyone can help or give leads it would be grateful to help support my family. Please please 🙏🏼
I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
14 people on EY USA had been barred from coming to usa. Who knows, thet were out of country for vacation, maybe meeting an ill relative or even attending a funeral. But that's none of my business

If my firm violated employment law and now I want to leave, how do I negotiate/value a severance?
Me as a new hire : *panicked I was going to be fired at any moment.* Me 4 years into this : Maybe if they fired me, it wouldn’t be that bad of a thing for my life 🤣😂.
I’ve been laid off for 6 months+ looking for senior account management roles in NYC. My background is in digital content strategy, performance marketing, and ecommerce.
Unfortunately was just laid off. I’m taking this as an opportunity to look forward to new experiences and people to work with. If anyone knows of any Producer gigs, I’m now available. I’m agency side.
So.. my husband and I live across the country from my family, including my young nieces. We haven’t seen them since before COVID and are not seeing anyone inside who is not vaccinated in our life, and this has not been a problem. We made a plan to vacation with my family to see them again this summer. My BIL is refusing to get vaccinated. Everyone else is vaccinated. My parents and sister aren’t happy about it but feel there is nothing they can do.
Big Four consultants, what is your firm’s policy for this year on promotions, raises, bonuses, layoffs? At PwC there’s a freeze on raises, minimal promotions and smaller bonuses. Pay-cut for partners. No layoffs, at least in the near future.
How many of you have trouble relaxing? I can't stop working, even at home or on vacation
Would you get fired if you edit your department partners’ picture and send it to your colleague?
How do you guys know when it’s time to take a vacation? Currently feeling burned out and wish I would’ve booked one sooner
ADVICE: Just got asked to interview in another city. The HR rep didn’t offer to fly me out, but asked if I could come to their office for an interview... cont
I heard Deloitte is going to raise and adjust compensations earlier this FY. I wonder if EY is going to do anything meaningful for its employees
Best WFH chairs? Prefer lumbar support
Currently making $135k base (expected to get $10-15k bonus end of year) Received an offer at a boutique firm for $120k + $15k bonus Y1 with potential to jump to TC of $160k+ in Y2. This company has much better WLB and more interesting work, but feels dumb to not take advantage of other firms potentially offering a huge salary jump for switching right now. Do I keep looking?
What’s a good starting salary for working as a Senior Associate in NYC for OMD? Other thoughts on the company? OMD
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Hired a new nanny and currently on day 2. I am still on maternity leave so helping toddler transition and baby. She seems nice but tardy and my toddler is a rocket.

Can I get some tips please ?
Finishing my first year at pwc - I've been in contact with a recruiter from Marakon for an associate position. They're offering ~90k up to 20% performance bonus (skeptical about this). Worth it? Ctd..
