Cannot think of a better day to take a PTO
Hoping to do a 4-7 day end of an Australian vacation in the Philippines or Indonesia. I would love to do some hikes, beaches, and/or see a cool food scene. Which is better for those?
Talent Acquisition teams: Are you all swamped and behind in your ATS processing right now? Asking as several colleagues and friends are actively submitting REFERRED applications for well-matched roles--but not hearing anything from HR. Is the need for talent real or is it overblown in the media? Or are a lot of TA people simply drowning at work or out on vacation right now? Tx for sharing if you are able! I'd like to give people some hope!
"Why do you encourage us to not take vacation?"... Let's engage and not answer this question because we want to run you into the ground

So I’m leaving for school out-of-state in two weeks. Today I was invited to a friend’s vacation home with a small group next weekend. Should I go? I’m conflicted because my school recommends I quarantine for two weeks before coming to campus.
Is it acceptable to give your 2 weeks with some days that encompass a holiday (I.e. Memorial Day and the Friday before).
Need quick help 🐠 fam, Is a suede blazer with dress pants and tie appropriate for a holiday party? Never been to one... attire is business causal/ cocktail? Thoughts, leaving in 1 hour, TIA
Has anyone seen the Trolls holiday video on Netflix? Agree or disagree that it is okay to show in class?
Looking to take some PTO in Quebec City. Restaurant, bnb, activity recommendations? Thanks!
Book recommendations for a vacation?
I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?
I'm a new hire and have no idea what to wear for the office holiday party. Any (serious) thoughts?
My dad works for the state and he currently has 7 months of accrued vacation and 10 months of sick time....we’re doing it wrong guys
Do you care about more money at a chill shop or unlimited pto at a shop you’re burning out in, for less money?
I am in process of moving over to KPMG. Curious how the vacation/holiday policy is there?
How is Deloitte with PTO? If I need to take a Thursday/Friday off- do they let me fly back on a Wednesday instead?
What are the pay bands at Slalom BA level for 2 YOE? What’s a reasonable as or negotiation? Currently looking at new opportunities and hoping for some more insight about benefits
What time do you moms wake up on weekends? Having major guilt about not being up before my son getting stuff done. (Single parent)

I'm a new hire in EY and I'm truly enjoying my time, I'm getting to work with some great techs and the people culture is much better than at EY. I get a chance to speak to the partners and I rarely...
Another laid off case here. Anyone moving out of US considered keeping the 401K as is instead of withdrawing? Any pros / cons to keep in mind ? Pro I see is no penalty and the fact that it'll continue to grow till I turn 65. Con is that it's a decent size amount in my case and I might need some if that cash if I don't get a job soon 🙄
How much did you spend per person on holiday gifts this year? Curious what most people are doing. Talking to friends I feel cheap. Although I’m a proud miser and don’t care, I’m just curious.
Do any of the top consulting firms have analytics roles (preferably not super technical) that don’t require weekly travel?
Simone Biles showed the world that there’s no such thing as the wrong time to prioritize your health and safety. It might be inconvenient and costly, but it is never wrong.
What are your thoughts on moving from analytics consulting in pharma (incentive compensation, forecasting) to strategy consulting? I recently made the same move as strategy consulting was something I was looking to explore for a long time but not entirely confident if I made the right choice. 4YOE here
Can anyone recommend a Time Management course for employees? Bonus if it is tailored for Outside Sales people. Online/Virtual would be preferred as the reps are scattered throughout the country. Thank you!
So a coworker friend overheard our department head discussing the budget for our position. Safe to say we are both grossly underpaid—her a lot more than me (a man), but even the difference for me is quite large (10k). Any advice on how to proceed?
Ive worked at big 4 for 3 years now and have never worked more than 40hrs a week. Pay is decent lcol city
Tell me I’m not the only one finding it SO hard settling into a new job that’s completely remote, within a pandemic? It’s been 5 months and I’m struggling so bad.
10 years ago today I had my tubes tied. It was the best thing I ever did for myself. It took years standing up to practitioners, reiterating my preference, and fighting for medical decisions over my own body. Ten years later and it was all worth it. No hormones, no condoms, no risk of making the hard decisions some I know have had to make. For anyone contemplating it, for anyone fighting with their docs, don’t give up if it’s what you really want.
How long did it take to process H4 and H4 EAD this past year. My SO just got their EB1 denied after multiple RFEs. Now have to switch to H4, as the H1B is expiring soon. We’re applying for an O in parallel. Looking for advise or positive stories to stay hopeful. I have an approved I-140
Preping for an interview for MBB. I never know how to prepare for the “tell me about a time you failed” q. Can anyone offer best way to approach this and perhaps an example?
