Choosing between 2 industry job offers. One pays $9k more than the other and has better benefits (unlimited pto, company gives random mental health days off, great health insurance, etc). The other offer pays less, but I enjoy the job description more and I connected more with my interviewers. Benefits are subpar though (only 15 days of pto per year for the first 4 years, high health insurance costs). Would you choose lower pay and not so great benefits if it meant you’d enjoy your job more?
How much vacation time do you take each year??
Is there a NYC Accenture Holiday party?
Should I tell new firm that I need time off to take CA bar before or after I accept the offer?
Has anyone taken an unplanned vacation before? Asking for weeks off when just two days before you want it.
Has anyone left Morgan Stanley after parental leave? Can you quit right after leave is over for another job or do you have to put in your two weeks first? Also can you use your vacation after you put your two weeks in?
Which one am I dreading more tomorrow: putting on suit pants after holiday eating or traveling tomorrow morning 😐 🔫
New hire here. When is it acceptable to take your first PTO? We have unlimited in theory - feel like there is some social pressure to not take it though.
So, I got through to final stages at a management consultancy where they all ‘loved me’ apparently. Job being advertised at £50-70k, they said I have potential & if they do want to offer me a role (within 2 wks as snr mgt team all on holiday wtf) would be a starting salary of £45k with salary increases (timeline of this increase tbd) in accordance with my performance. They’ve tried recruiting internally but can’t even get anyone past the first round. I feel like rejecting on principle! Thoughts?

Any insight into the typical timeline to secure a lateral move, start to finish? I’m a junior associate in corp biglaw looking to lateral to a different market and have connected with a few firms’ recruiting teams via my personal network, but haven’t heard back since sending materials in 2 weeks ago. Hoping it’s just the normal holiday season delays, but starting to worry I haven’t gotten a single bite. Any advice much appreciated!
How are you spending your time off?
On PTO and my laptop is at home 🙌🏼
Working with a partner who blatantly ignores all of my emails. No matter what I send, I do not get a response, but if anyone else sends her an email, she responds in seconds. She is one of the rainmakers of the firm so I cannot figure out if it is a power trip or she just doesn’t like me (I’m new to the firm). Would you address it?
Hi ladies! I’ve been feeling down and behind in my career compared to my friends. We recently made career shifts and they moved to great firms in really prestigious roles and i’m super excited for them. But I can’t help but feel like I made a poor career choice steps behind compared to them. I know I am capable of attaining and performing well in the roles they have so I feel less excited about the role I have now. I’ve been looking at job openings. I shouldn't compare but it’s hard. Any advice?

On a project I hate. Leadership knows but doesn’t care, and I’m afraid to speak up more than I have already because confrontation like this makes me cry. Just really not sure what to do and could use
