How do you disconnect from work?
Need Advice: I’m taking a 1 week vacation during the next month ans I just got invited to an all day training for 3 days starting the day after I return.
Am I crazy for asking my manager to go to the non mandatory training and leaving my SC to defend for themselves for almost 2 weeks?
I asked 3 of my higher ups to write me letters of recommendation a month ago when I put in my resignation. I went on PTO for a couple weeks & followed up with my manager today. He told me “actually I was told we aren’t allowed to write them for you. Sorry.”
I asked why and he just shrugged and continued the conversation...
Has anyone heard of anything like this? Bosses “not being allowed” to write LORs for exiting employees? I’m leaving on my own terms & good standing.

I have been at my company for a little less than 4 years now. I’ve had the third highest sales last year out of a team of 50 and consistently the highest outbound calls per week. They told me I can start WFH once I hit $1mil in profit, but then rescinded right before I hit the goal. They have also denied simpler request like time off, when I know they have approved this before for others. I feel super unappreciated, but the money is great. I’m not sure if I should look elsewhere and start over?
What’s my responsibility for checking emails while I’m on vacation? I have great producer coverage for all my projects while I’m gone but I’ve never gone complete radio silence for an entire week.
How many of you own vacation homes?
Somewhat Deloitte specific, but the Deloitte bowl is mean so posting here
I’m up for promotion this year, and I’ve been working so hard and my feedback is amazing and I’ve wanted this for awhile. Now, an immediate relative is actively dying and I may go out on a short leave, and I also have some PTO planned so that I can visit family oversees later this fall. With all that’s happening, I’m not going to hit my 90% utilization target, which is a checkbox in my promo. (cont).
Anyone ever feel awkward or bad letting folks know you’re out for a religious holiday? Yom Kippur is on Monday this year and there’s virtually no other Jews in my group, so it feels like an inconvenience to the rest of my team that I’ll be out on a random Monday.
What questions would you ask at an interview with a boutique firm? (I am a 4th year associate). Also, is it typical for a firm to have 3 weeks of PTO?
Since it is a holiday for me on Monday, I will log on to my laptop on Tuesday afternoon 😎
I found the following perks in Deloitte should also be considered at RISE
1. Office Phone reimbursement
2. Well-being allowance yearly 25k
3. Vacation allowance of 25k
4. Amount of Rewards and Recognition min 5k compared to current reward Rs.1500
How do you guys take time to get your hair and nails done for those who don’t have a stylist available on weekends and don’t want to use PTO
Anyone here a new USDC virtual hire? Debating on accepting the offer or not. Currently at EY, senior SAP consultant, trying to compare a senior solution specialist role. Comp is 4K more so pretty much lateral move. Losing lots of PTO and sick time. The only benefit I’m see is the less travel whenever things go back to normal, whenever that is.
How are things at a USDC vs traditional consulting? Work life balance? Co workers? I like the idea of a remote role because travel was getting to be to
If you switch from working on contract (W2) and go to FTE, what is the percentage decrease you anticipate? My guess was 10-15%
(For things like vacation days, 401 K match etc).
🎄How do you plan to recharge over the holiday? Are you taking time off? Do you plan to reset or rest at all before the New Year?

This is how I spent my holiday (here in the US). Fred & Ginger.

I am level 1 resource. Need classroom management ideas. We've been placed on a block schedule this year due to Covid so I have students for 85 minutes every other day. I have a larger group who are all working at different levels and have different goals. I am constantly jumping from one student to another trying to work them but I am failing. I can't keep them on task, quite, or motivated. If I walk away from one, they're immediately messing around. Group work is a joke. HELP!
Could anyone elaborate on or point me in the direction for info on AUSAs, when it comes to restrictions on trading securities? I know the SEC is very strict and has a blanket rule for all attorneys, but not sure about DOJ attorneys (and whether it depends on what office/unit/section you’re in).
Looking to relocate to the south-east U.S. to be nearer family. Anyone know of any good agencies/clients hiring senior roles at the moment or will be soon? Ideally one that's going hybrid at least. Fully remote also good, but would like to be in the SE so going to the office would be at least an option. And yes, I've looked at LinkedIn, Indeed, Google etc.
