What are the rules about your two weeks overlapping with holiday time off? Is that a really bad look?
Recently received comparable offers to Capgemini Invent and Accenture Strategy (comparable title, pay, vacation days). Now what 🐟? Thoughts? Other points to consider?
Just returned from my combined family vacation with my SO. I initially thought it would be a great idea to being our parents along to show them a new country and give back for everything they’ve given us in life. Fast forward I’m more exhausted than before the vacation. My mother has been toxic all the way and didn’t miss out on a single opportunity to criticize my relationship. My in-laws were either talking all the time about random stuff or fighting between each other. Continuing…
Is time off/vacation and sick time negotiable with WPP? Specifically Ogilvy NY prior to accepting an offer? Heard it’s only 10 days of PTO. That’s crazy 🥴
Thoughts on taking a self-claimed mental health day after billing crazy hours for the past 2 months?
Has anyone bought a Black Friday or Cyber Monday electronic that’s helped with their work? Trying to find some ideas to treat myself. Hope everyone’s having a nice holiday weekend!
What's the etiquette around reminders about pre-Thanksgiving emails/tasks/etc? On one hand, I don't want to be the guy who emails people a reminder at 8am on the Monday after the holiday weekend as if they weren't busy, but on the other hand, the people had 1-3 business days (after considering PTO and holiday time, because the tasks are from the 19th and 22nd) to handle or reply, and they have not yet.
Thankful every day I no longer work in education, food service or retail. Remember to be kind this holiday season. https://saxifraga-x-urbium.tumblr.com/post/664465239057809408/a-lot-of-them-probably-wouldnt-last-at-your-job
Can someone from ACN tell me how the new maternity leave policy works? Contacted HR, read the policy but an confused if you get the 16 weeks plus FMLA, then your PTO if you want to take that.
Sorry if a duplicate post... is EY FSO having a holiday party this year? Or the answer is no again?
Random - Does anyone want a custom laser engraved cutting board, charcuterie board, or Yeti Mug made for a holiday gift or for yourself? I can do it for $39 plus shipping. I’m looking to take pictures of sample work products to start an Etsy shop but need a customer first to even start 🙈 DM for more info!
Would you bring your partner to your work holiday party? I meant, I’m not in the closet, but I don’t declare that I’m gay to everyone at work, like straight people don’t do. I’m wondering if I should bring my partner, go there solo, or just not go.
Any tropical vacation destination ideas with a 1 year old? I want to plan a vacation - either Caribbean or Central America I think - that’s a bit adventurous but also relaxing. Please send ideas if you have any. (I’m currently thinking Costa Rica)
What's a reasonable amount of vacation time to take off each year? Feeling guilty when I use my time, and also feel the expectation is to be checking in.
Any of you book a nice vacation a few months out? I have lots of Bonvoy points and trying to book some international properties (Bali etc) while rates are low.. any ideas for good deals still
How do most firms handle billable hour goals & PTO? I haven’t taken any pto all year and I would like to but I’m realizing for any pto I use I would need to make up hours to make sure I still hit my monthly goal.
After 3 weeks of vacation... I'm thinking I'll realistically be 50% productive tomorrow at best.
Today’s career aspiration: get to the level where you do not have to submit time sheets. SVP? EVP?￼
Interviewing with a small internal strat team (currently 3 FTEs) led by the CSO. One VP was awesome, Ex MBB really energetic/excited is with 1.5 yrs in tenure. Then interviewed with the other VP and Manager. They weren’t great, overall not quite at the same level as the VP in terms of professionalism and pedigree. They were very tactical and felt more like middle managers without vision. The latter two seem to have grown up in the company (3-4 years)
Hi everyone - I am looking for a new role and would appreciate your support. Thank you in advance for any connections, advice, or opportunities you can offer.
So many new hires coming in. I just don't get it, with all the layoffs that happened a few months back and a bench so deep..
Covid WFH... exactly this feeling
People who haven’t switched jobs during the pandemic: Are we requesting higher increases during annual comp discussions? Happy at my job but plan on leaving if comp increase is insufficient. Any success stories here?
Late post but I’m thankful for the Controller who made the big4transparency.com website! It may have helped a few souls realize they’re underpaid and looked for greener pastures which then contributed to the movement in the market and therefore the firms’ drive to make compensation competitive. I hope everyone updates the sheet with their adjusted comps in the past few months to make it more recent!
westin, W or another beachside spg/marriott in Fort Lauderdale? Long weekend with husband.
I want to exit to MBB but if that’s not a possibility what are the next best consulting firms? Looking for at least midsize firms (non-boutiques).
Have 46 nights on Marriott Bonvoy this year - no more work travel so if I want to get to 50 I’d have to stay 4 nights personal - have my plat status renewed for next year so staying the 4 nights would only be for getting the 5 suite night upgrades - never had them before so wondering if they’re worth spending ~$700 in essence just for them? What would u guys do?
Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?

Accenture 7.25 + 1.5(variable) - offer accepted Capegemini 9.5 fixed- offer might come anytime soon. Which one Would be better? Considering Work Culture Work Life Balance and Job Security
If I get a job offer and make a counter offer for a higher salary, is there any chance they would rescind the original offer? (asking for ~15% bump)
Any consulting firms that actually train their employees? I came from WM industry so consulting was a bit of a culture shock and i wish my company had invested time into training me so I’d be a better consultant. Hoping to make a move elsewhere to a company that spends a few weeks mentoring before putting you on a project.
