I’m > 1 year in and am already noticing there is no such thing as PTO because everyone still works during PTO. Is this the same in industry?
leaving the firm(KPMG).What’s the strategy to get the most $$? Do you get paid out all vacation days for the year? Even if you are leaving in the beginning of the fiscal year?(October). You get taxed?
How much PTO do you generally use per year? I try to use my full 3 weeks and everyone acts like I’m breaking the law or something
I’m interviewing for in-house and firm roles and I’m not sure how to navigate the compensation issue. My first job out of law school was with a state regulatory agency so comp was slotted and basically limited to salary and PTO. What should I be looking for when I interview in-house? With a firm? I don’t want to leave compensation on the table and end up feeling undervalued later.
Which agency offers the most time off?
If I put in my notice right before the holiday weekend, will they ask me to leave that day or should I just wait till we get back?
Given the state of the world, are you keeping your vacations in tact that you planned way in advance? In the event that this is over, is it irresponsible to take a vacation?
I saw a retail establishment fully decked out in Christmas decorations a few days ago. I, too, love the holiday season. But it's not the season yet!!
Can they disburse excess PTO for those who get fired on 11/16 to the rest of us?? It’s just in time for thanksgiving AND Christmas, too?!

Mamas, have you asked for a roll off or less responsibilities on your current project due to pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness? My client is so critical and demanding it’s caused me to have stress hives and panic attacks. I don’t think I can do my role well pregnant and don’t want the stress to cause the baby harm.

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications

Hi ladies, just in need of some encouragement or inspirational stories about pivoting to a new career. I’m at a large established brand name firm doing boring stuff& just got a strong offer (2x my last year TC+promoted title) to do real estate. Very surprised as the firm is relatively under the radar but intrigued to see many partners in RE there are women! Still, nervous about leaving a big recognizable place and about an absolutely different career path—would love to hear your thoughts!
Considering the FRM certification. Those who’ve taken it, how quant heavy is it? I have a compliance risk background and don’t have a deep math or statistics background. However, I want to expand my skillset. Any thoughts?
