Hello fishes! Anyone has any referrals for a fresher's job? My brother is about to graduate but is having trouble getting placed. He has a pretty sick resume btw! Any and all help would be appreciated :)
I’ve never really taken sick days in my entire consulting career, about 2 years in. I do not want to, and I just don’t get sick often. But I’m wondering if this is something that is valued by upper management when evaluating their talent? Any thoughts from leaders and managers in consulting? I’ll continue to be the same regardless but I’ve been curious is this is a strength.

Has anyone successfully taken unpaid leave after short term disability? I think my doctor’s willingness to continue filling out my paperwork for STD is reaching an end but I’m having panic attacks even thinking about returning to work so I’d like to take more time off. I’m willing to take unpaid leave but not sure if broaching this with HR will just cause my company to fire me
I have a pre employment medical screening at Shell. I mentioned on the form that I suffer from depression and am taking SSRI for it. Do you think this could be a valid reason to fail the screening?

Been on FMLA / short term disability for 3 months and doctor recommended 1.5 months extension. My firm refused the extended leave but we’re unable to provide reasons what the under hardship for the firm is. They are pressing me hard for alternative ada accommodation (anything but continuous leave) so I can get back to work. If not they will terminate me next day. Is it legal?
Does anyone else feel like this job is turning their brain to complete mush or should I seek medical advice? 😅 I feel like my memory is 0 and my day to day work doesn’t really involve much critical thinking or problem solving. Suggestions?
I am on track to FI/RE in 9 years at age 42. But I am burnt out. Considering stepping away for 6 months to a year to do something cool, but don't want to fuck up fi/re. Help me see the forest through the trees? I've been a delayed gratification kind of person my whole life. Sick of waiting.

Our team works all the time - Saturday, Sunday, told us we need to work from the hotel every night. We are out of town 85% of the time, some Fridays at home. Busy season is like 2am nights. Cont...
Currently in audit, looking to do tax returns for friends and family on the side to make a little extra money. Two questions: 1) would the firm have a problem with this if it doesn’t interfere with my work? I assume no since the firm probably isn’t interested in filing my brother’s return (he is a union electrician). 2) I have no experience in tax (I don’t even do my own return), so is there a good software to use for this or what is the best way to learn how to do tax returns?
Advice on how to make first Tumi purchase? Full-set? Discount retailers (Nordstrom rack, etc.)? Holiday sales? I assume PwC doesn't have a corporate discount, so any help is appreciated!

High perf M1 at Big4 in comm. and received Associate offer from MBB. Pay bump is somewhat ok and I get to work on something cooler but feels like a step back in career. Feeling conflicted. Thoughts?
