When you’re comparing offers how you put a value against benefits like vacation allowance? Just calculate the value of a paid day as a % of base?
How much time off is appropriate to take off for a wedding? I want to take 3 days off on either side of my wedding (6 days total), plus a week the next month (7 days total) for my honeymoon.
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!
Looking to take some PTO in Quebec City. Restaurant, bnb, activity recommendations? Thanks!
My girlfriend and I really want to take vacation in early May but since I'm writing the CFE this year, would it be advisable to bank those days for studying? How much time do we get off to study?
Friday is our last class before Thanksgiving holiday. Any ideas for an engaging, Thanksgiving-themed lesson? I'll probably have 1/3 of my students show up, so I want it to be fun for them. TIA
PwC Director Sabbatical is a joke. They tell you it is 4 weeks, it is actually 3 weeks plus one week of your vacation, and good luck trying to take it.
Does Deloitte send people to current address and permanent address for background verification. What if no one is not available in current address when person comes for verification. Will that cause any problem? Asking coz planning a vacation for 2 weeks and worried what if person comes at that time when no one is available
I need perspective. I was scheduled for a bunch of spa services today before a vacation. Early in the morning, a spa lady calls me to reschedule. I tell her I can’t reschedule due to my job. She replies that she remembers me mentioning that from a previous appointment she “helped me rescue.” She never acknowledged knowing me prior to that comment. I was offended as it came across as judging my stress level and availability based on a service I received years ago. Did I get unreasonably upset?
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.
Anyone know when holiday layoffs are being scheduled for this year? First week of December or end of January?
Do you care about more money at a chill shop or unlimited pto at a shop you’re burning out in, for less money?
Planning for a family (of 4) trip to either Greece or Portugal in late fall this year. Flight costs are almost same. Any pointers as to which one would provide biggest bang for the buck? We're mostly laid back, don't care for top end luxury, not great hikers. Just looking a relaxing vacation.
I’ve done really well in my 2 years with my current big 4 firm and am coming up for promotion in July. I am sitting on an offer with a step up in title and 40% pay increase. They say grass is not greener on the other side (hello unlimited PTO and all the other terrible comments I’ve read for new firm. Guess who 😂😅) but it’s hard to justify not moving. Am I making a huge mistake leaving behind my 2 year hard work going to the unknown or should I just go for it and take the pay and title!? Help.
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?
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?
If you had a choice, which would you choose? A) having the annual holiday party B) splitting the holiday party budget equally between employees as bonus BONUS Q: do you know your agency's budget?
My agency technically has unlimited PTO but our managers quietly disapprove of the policy. It’s the kind of place where people make you feel guilty for taking it... (cont)
What’s everyone’s summer (May-Sept) working hours - assuming you don’t have a 6/30 year end client. The partners expectation is 8-6:30 and logging on from home after that some days. Is that insane?
This Marriott 2k bonus points each stay promotion is garbage. I’ve traveled every week since the beginning of the promotion and the bonus points have only posted twice total

Hi moms, anyone implemented taking cara babies 5-24 month sleep training course on their 4 month old? She says baby isnt developmentally ready until at least 20 weeks but I read every where that 4 months is ideal to start sleep training.

Hey all, I remember seeing a email where it states PTO this year will not effect utilization.. But i see it resulting in a low utilization for me.. Both standard and adjusted are at 75%..Can someone please help me understand this.. Thanks
Expecting a baby this summer. Should I still be looking for other job opportunities? EY has a very generous paternity leave if you’ve been with the firm for 1+ years, but not sure if I would have the same opportunity to take 2-3 months leave if I switch jobs. Can I potentially work parental leave into negotiations?
Is there an industry community for agency mothers to connect? Curious to hear what resources you use & communities you‘re part of. Or does your agency have their own mother groups to support you?
I asked yesterday about Sidebench culture: don’t bother. They’ll ghost you interviewing anyways and not follow up 🙄
I desperately want to teach JH History, but every job I interviewed for told me no thanks, they only want coaches (two even specified male!!). Super disheartening. Hopefully one day I can do it.
So finally got my standing desk set up. Got a birch butcher block from Homedepot,stained and gave it a few coats of poly. But its been a few weeks and the smell of the poly is strong when I'm near the desk. I can't stand it, does it eventually go away? Anyone have expertise on this? Tia!
What are the odds of Bonvoy, Hyatt, and others extending 2020/21 status into 2022? Similar to how Delta just extended their medallion status into 2022?
