14 people on EY USA had been barred from coming to usa. Who knows, thet were out of country for vacation, maybe meeting an ill relative or even attending a funeral. But that's none of my business
What do people do on vacation? First day of vacation and I can't rest - constant feeling of missing something important from work
Just gonna vent here bc I can’t do this on normal social media but it infuriates me how people just blatantly ignore requests to RSVP to events. I sent an initial invite for our client holiday..cont
Career Tip: Martyrdom is not rewarded in the workplace. Take your PTO. Take care of your body & your mind. Have interests and strong relationships outside of work so that you do not attach undue importance to the people at work. Protect your peace.
What to do with excess cash? Already have a rainy day fund, saved up for vacation, and maxed out 401k, ira, and hsa. I don't have any debt and I can't trade in anything but funds.
Pro tip: use your PTO to go all in on a personal hobby or side project for a week. It’s super refreshing, and you don’t have the stress of travel.
Ladies - how do you balance time at your SO’s family vs yours? Mine is closer and easier to get to (driving distance on East Coast), whereas his is on the West Coast and requires a week’s vacation to make worthwhile. Continued.
Not so fun one: drank too much at the holiday party and feel like a total idiot. Nothing happened but still, lesson learned. Any advice on how to recover?
So.. my husband and I live across the country from my family, including my young nieces. We haven’t seen them since before COVID and are not seeing anyone inside who is not vaccinated in our life, and this has not been a problem. We made a plan to vacation with my family to see them again this summer. My BIL is refusing to get vaccinated. Everyone else is vaccinated. My parents and sister aren’t happy about it but feel there is nothing they can do.
Suggestions for end of sept vacation in Algarve (Portugal)? Looking to hike/be outdoors as much as possible.
I go back tomorrow after a week's vacation. When is it expected I start catching up on email? Tonight? Tomorrow?
so nice to have partners and managers that are explicitly appreciative about hard work. Yes, we've worked ~45 hours since Sunday - despite monday holiday- but feels nice to celebrate as a full team!
Has anyone ever used the Samaritans? My therapist is on holiday and I badly need help. My boyfriend is ghosting me after a fight and I have the strong feeling it’s over and he’s just being cruel. My self esteem and outlook are zero. I’ve been told EAP is terrible for this so need a temporary option that is free or very cheap. I’m based in the UK in case that helps.
Do you guys truly disconnect on vacations? Is it frowned upon? I have a vacation next week but feel like the expectation is for me to be available
"Who was your plus-one to that previous company event? Bring them to the holiday party!" "Yeah I'd love to but we actually stopped seeing eac--" "Anyway can't wait to see them at the holiday party!"
Does anyone else feel as though they ought to either (1) quit your job or (2) cry when senior folks in your department boast somehow (or complain) they’ve not taken a week+ long vacation in two years?
Getting ready to sign my contract and raise my right hand for National Guard. I have yet to tell my manager out of fear they try to let me go before I am “officially” in service.

Is there a (recent) ex-Accenture MD that took a principal role at Deloitte or PwC be willing to DM? I have started the interview process at these 2 firms and would like to understand compensation, culture, independence etc. thx
How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?
O.M.G! My co-worker texts me about my boss (annoying person). I responded via Skype and vented, BUT I sent the message to my boss! The name was above my friend's!!

The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement. Nobody is going to give LCOL a raise to move to HCOL. The work you do is the same, you produce the same value, bill the same rate as peers in another geography. Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.
Anyone here that works in KPMG Real Estate tax group in NY? Would like to know more about the group and the culture! TIA!
I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
