What's your firm's time entry policy? Recently was told we had to release our time daily or we could lose our PTO. Before this we had to release it once a week. Anyone else have such a policy?
Why are salaries in Europe so much lower vs the US? US compensation is literally double the one in Europe.. Even in big cities like London and Paris. Not to mention the redicolous amounts paid in Spain or Italy
Big Law Dads: How much time do you usually take off when your wife has a baby? And do you actually get to take off, or do you just end up working from home half the time? My wife is due Mid-December, and I’m staffed on 4 M&A deals trying to close by year end, so it’s not looking promising.
For those who have started watching holiday movies, which of the new queer releases have you enjoyed?
Question for folks in here who work at a company with unlimited PTO/vacation - how do you manage this from being abused by employees?

After holiday monday motivation what has helped you jump start today...other than copious amounts of coffee?
Does anyone else feel that there are just too many politics at their firm? Favoritism? For example, it came to my attention that two tax managers at my firm are on PTO. How does this make sense?
When do you guys think we can start going on a vacation? Safely. I am soo bored and tired of washing groceries!! How do you guys plan to utilise your leaves??
Curious do you guys celebrate Christmas, other holidays? And not looking for religious bashing. Just curious for eg. I am big on Christmas/ holiday spirit. I get a tree, lighting, gifts, sweaters. But similarly I have family who get very mad at wishing Merry Christmas. I am curious where you guy’s heads are at. Any cultural differences between eg black vs Arab vs south Asian Muslims etc.
Is it unusual to solo travel? I’ve traveled for work alone, but also often for vacation (including cruises - not Atlantis and internationally). I enjoy it but get strange reactions when I tell people I vacationed alone
Only place I know of where I can ask a question, and hopefully not sound like a creep... so here it goes. I am on vacation with some family and got a massage. My male cousin mentioned he has only had massages with happy endings and asked if women do the same. I said I had never, but now I am curious, does that actually happen? Do women get happy endings too?
Am I crazy? I recently moved in with my girlfriend of 6 years. I am jewish - I go to temple and celebrate jewish holidays. Technically, she is half jewish half christian. She does not go to temple or church and basically only celebrates Christmas. Continued…
EY moms - I’m on leave now, I had my baby about 3 weeks ago. 😊 I was planning to tack on 4 weeks of PTO at the end of my leave (starting in January). Does the new PTO policy change this? My Counselor signed off on these dates and my CFL was Cced on my leave form. I live in CA and will use 8 weeks of PFL at the end of my PTO. Any insights? Thanks!
Is it realistic in big law to take 20 days of mostly uninterrupted vacation time a year? My firm has unlimited and my group doesn’t take more than a couple days off a year. I like the work and people but there’s no way I can or will stay long term without being able to take 20 days of real vacation a year for my health and to live my life. Firm policy says while vacation is unlimited they encourage 20 days. What’s the temperature in the room on this ?

Tips on preparing for the California Bar? I’m writing in July and my firm has given me 6 weeks paid time off to prepare, but don’t know if that’s sufficient time or if I should self study in advance while working as well.

When clients ask for a deliverable by EOD Friday knowing darn well they won't review it till Monday morning. 😒
Hangover=working from home
Girl on my project picks whatever airline is cheapest every week. Does she think whoever saves the firm the most money gets an award?
Nieces and nephews of Uncle D, are we getting new coffee machines?!?! I was in McLean last year and they had the sad flavia ones but just went again and there are nice ones with real beans! Firm wide?
Currently a tech consultant and looking to transition to strategy. Any one want to earn a referral bonus?
Hillary Clinton would have made an excellent consultant... All she does is bullshit every answer people ask her
Shout out to that 1 client who gets how shitty being a consultant can be & defends you/your tasks during a project meeting verbal-gang-rape. The real MVP.
Looks like we may see some picketing tomorrow: flyertalk.com/articles/united-airlines-crew-to-picket-16-airports-worldwide-thursday.html as long as this doesn't affect our travel...
