Anyone have a position where they actually do not work while on vacation? I’m in a small firm doing commercial real estate and there are no real vacations. Is in-house better? Government maybe?
aside from salary, what would you personally negotiate in an offer and what can you negotiate? obviously vacation. paying for courses? attending conferences? relo?
on PTO today. ate a gummy after lunch. remembered right after it kicked in that i had a client presentation in 15 minutes. with the cmo 🙃
Last six weeks at work since I didn't get the H1B visa and moving in August. On the bench.. how should I use my time
Doing some dead boring shit. But working with a great senior manager who promises to pull me up if I stick. But counsellor advises to roll off and find something aligned to me. Opinion? I'm jus staff1
Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out. It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Can we use work phones abroad? I am taking a vacation but need to take a client call around the same time I land at destination. Can I just dial in to the call business as usual assuming It’s 1 hr?
So since the economy is on the bench at this point, whatever hospital is talking money I'm ready to scrub in!!
Hi 🐟🐠- when leaving ACN, is there any advantage to PTO payout vs. staying employed and taking PTO?
On the bench part-time and not caring to seek out opportunities to get to 45. Currently @ 90k with 2 yoe Am I being underpaid?
Kind of started seeing someone in the city I was traveling to but unexpectedly rolled off earlier than I was supposed to. Here's to another lonely Valentine's Day 😶
What is your PTO policy at your firm?
Tfw youre going on vacation but still have a crap load of work unfinished and a lot more new work waiting for you when you come back... And of course I’ll be thinking about that while on “vacation”..
Is anyone interested in a May Day Zoom HH Friday evening? Maybe do some unboxings, kind of like adult show and tell. Adult clothes/accessories, that is. And drinks! Or smokes! Vote for times here!
Sometimes when I think about how I’ve gone from summer leadership to an internship to a full job at PwC, I wonder if anybody would even hire me in the real world. #lambtotheslaughter
Big 4 vs top 10. For core tax, how different is the work? Are there certain things you probably won't run see unless you are B4? How bad is the pigeon-holing, what level does it typically occur at?
Does Capgemini give yearly bonus to existing employees? If yes, how much% or bonus is given?
So. Much. Diversity.
Thought I recently saw a comment on another post about some mental health program that PwC added or something. Anybody know about this?
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
How soon do transitions happen (involuntarily) at MBBs? I recently joined and am always worried that I’ll be let go. What are the conversations/processes like? [Asking for MBB because I’m also curious about the differences if any between the firms]
Option to get United miles (3750) or $75 gift certificate. Which one? Anyone know what the miles are worth in $$$?
I had six hours worth of Zoom interviews with an AmLaw100 firm on Monday and Tuesday last week. I haven’t heard back on anything yet - when is “too” long to have not heard back and when should I reach out to their in-house recruiter for some kind of update?
Any recommendations for a portable second monitor? Ideally something that would fit in a carry-on? Since I’m still WFH, I’m taking a week-long trip to visit my sister. We’ll both be working during the week and I’d like to avoid working only from a laptop if I can.
For those of you living alone, how are you keeping yourself entertained during social distancing? I’m hundreds of miles from my family and the loneliness is starting to get really hard. Zoom/FaceTime calls seem to make the feeling worse, not better. I just feel so isolated. I’ve gone for some outdoor walks with a friend who lives nearby, but otherwise I go weeks without in-person interactions. Any suggestions?
Thoughts on news of so many employees going on strike? Will they increase benefits and wages across the board?

I really love Workday... from the WFH stipend at the beginning to the 2 week paid bonus + all this WFH, really makes me appreciate where I work. Its supposedly cost us 80m in expenses too.
Received an offer from McKinsey & Company and am super stoked to join, but I’m getting quite criticized in my personal life for the decision mostly because of the public image of the firm. I get where they’re coming from, but figured most of the consulting industry was like this, not just McKinsey, and strategy work is what really interests me. Any tips on how to deal with it?
