Back from the holiday ...
I am not sure if this the right bowl or someone here faced this. Me and my wife who is an American citizen born here had our green card interview. The officer who took our interview used very rude or condescending language throughout the interview. He passed a snide remark that whether i proposed her on twitter to i explained i proposed in person during a vacation. He put our case for further review. He only asked for couple of documents even though we carried 4 large file holders. Contd...
Californians, I am curious what firms decide to do regarding honoring Juneteenth going forward. Part of the reason I ask is that Cesar Chavez Day (state holiday) is virtually unrecognized by any firm. Some interesting decisions to be made.
Agreed to take a 30 minute call despite having scheduled PTO...3 hours later I finally closed my laptop. This job definitely takes whatever you’re willing to give and then some...
Traveling home for the holiday tomorrow morning- likely drunk, w/ a suitcase full of dirty clothes... Just like the old college days.
Is Hill holiday NY all healthcare clients?
I’m sure this has been asked before—but how do you get through work when going through a breakup with a long term SO? I have a new male boss & cant really tell him what’s going on. I’ve been taking PTO scattered. I live alone and NYC Covid winter alone is already feeling so overwhelmingly sad and lonely on top of everything else.
Technically unassigned this week, but ended up working from home on random shit I needed to finish or start; how to tell boss I want Friday off? just don't turn on computer? PTO maxed
What’s worse? One week notice or two week notice then go on vacation for those last two weeks??
MG:"I send you a wrong version of deck before I went on vacation, why don't you tell me? You better not do it next time! " Excuse me?!
2 short weeks coming up, then PTO for 2 weeks!
What I think on holiday weekend Mondays: "it's the least wonderful time of the year." Good luck, comrades!
On the bench for 9 weeks, starting on a new project next week and going on a 2 week vacation right after I join. Am I in danger of getting fired here? Had arranged the holiday 2 months ago and spend
PwC, if you leave do they payout your vacation balance (If so, how much?) Or is it best to use up the hrs?
Next week is the 1st week on my project (it's an 8 hr flight). I have a big family event on Wednesday night that I want to take 1 day PTO for. Would it be unreasonable to ask to work remote 1st wk?
What's good with tax busy szn this year? My boyfriend works at EisnerAmper and they told the staff no more PTO for the rest of the summer, but's it's just the beginning of June....
I am planning to go on a 4 day vacation including the weekend. I want to travel outside US and I live in the SE region. What are some good places that you suggest?
iPhone 7 heads (for personal and biz): did you buy out right or pay per month? If biz phone, can we pay per month and just expense each month?
I just gave the GRE test 1. I got 317 (Q: 162; V: 155). Is one month sufficient to improve the verbal score by 5-6 points? Most of my mistakes are in RC.
Sometimes my SO behaves like my worst enemy.... I am just sick of this... I mean.... I am home only 2 days a week... why all the negativity and spite ?
i’m going thru the recruiting process for PwC Manager / advisory in Tier 1 city (Boston). what’s the base salary range I should be asking for that is not low ball or beyond realistic?
A crying child in the economy plus seat next to me on my 5 am flight out of ORD...it's gonna be a GREAT WEEK!!!
People who stand up as soon as the plane lands, can you explain why? Not being snarky, but I don't see how it benefits much?
Hi 🐠! What are some tangible methods you have successfully used to avoid lifestyle creep? I currently max my 401k and IRA each year, and was thinking of putting 50% of raises/bonuses towards investments so I never see it hit my bank account, but curious what you all have done. Trying to find a balance of prep for fin freedom while enjoying life. Thanks!
Thoughts on Johannes Leonardo?
I was placed on PIP due to unavailable projects... and right before my pip period was about the end, I got placed on a project. is it weird I was hoping to get fired and get my severance package?
I just received an offer for a job I want and the salary I asked for, but it says my first compensation review wouldn’t be for 1.5 years (May 2021). They do an annual bonus up to 10% of salary (cont)
Is it viewed as “not good” to go back to my alma mater for MBA? It’s a top 40 business school and got me into B4 consulting easily. School has strong recruiting presence in the region I want and I have a full ride for their FT program. Appreciate any thoughts!
First line: As CEO of a firm that advises thousands of the biggest U.S. companies, he knows all about the Great Resignation. 😂 Because everyone is leaving D?? https://www.axios.com/joe-ucuzoglu-ceo-deloitte-employer-jobs-benefits-df7bfb2d-705b-4511-ab00-1836e37cbaaa.html

Has anyone been fired? How did you recover?
Getting really sick of health care providers and my own health insurance company trying to constantly screw me on medical bills. I've caught errors on the last 5 bills I've received. Starting to think this is happening on purpose...

Hi everyone- does anyone have insight into the promotion structure at EY, specifically the SaT FDD group? Is it common to make Manager after two years of being a Senior? TIA
Got engaged last week. Today’s the first introductory zoom call with both sets of in laws. Her parents only speak their local language and my parents don’t speak that. We have both spoken to each other’s parents separately and it’s great, but first time we will all be speaking together. Any advise how to navigate the call and pitfalls to avoid?
If I gave a salary range in my pre-screen and then got an offer in that range, can I negotiate higher? They said 70-80k. I said I’m look for something higher (more in the 90-100k) and they said that should be doable, but really I want something in the 110-120k range (gave a lowball bc didn’t want to turn them off in the first round). How do I got about asking for higher?
