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
One hellish project wrapped up yesterday, on my way to a Caribbean beach vacation 🎈🎉🍷💃🏻✈️
Have seen a lot of negative about Trump lately. Don't forget, if it wasn't for him, Juneteenth would still be an ignored holiday.
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!
Caribbean vacation ideas with a few friends? Something different than Atlantis. Would like the option for water sports - sailing, jet skiing, and obviously a beautiful beach. Thanks!
Just finalized and booked my wife and I to a vacation in Europe for end of the year. Feels amazing to call it our honeymoon after 4 years of marriage ❤️ Delayed gratification and totally worth it.
I’m waiting on my h1b transfer. If I got rfe, I really want to use the waiting time to visit my family (have more than enough pto left with my current employer). Anyone know if it’s possible to use my old I797 to get VISA stamp? Then putting notice after I’m back.
I was thinking about taking my 4 yo on a beach vacation and skipped going anywhere during peak summer season. Is there any place with low risk where I can spend some time away from home?
Does anyone have to work tomorrow (not given Friday off for the holiday? Or is their company giving Monday off instead? Or no holiday at all?
Any Deloitters know if you still have to confirm your schedule in STAFFIT If you're on Pto for the entire week, or no?
If I’m available for a couple of weeks, is it ok to stay home 1 day without taking vacation? Is there a way HR will find out if I don’t come in?
"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
Hi all, I’m planning to take my first exam in NY. I’m hesitating to take it 1-2 days right before the day of my flight (going on PTO) is it risky ? I know some people got their seat cancelled by Prometric. What are your thoughts ? Thanks
Trying to decide between Capgemeni and Deloitte - same level, both human capital consulting. The differences are comp and benefits - Capgemeni is 15% more in comp but half of Deloitte’s PTO days.
Cannot think of a better day to take a PTO
Definitely in a bad mood lately due to the increased work load. Considering PTO just to relax and figure out a better routine where my days aren’t just about work. How do you guys maintain a well balanced routine?
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'm an analyst who has been WFH the past year; however, client is making it mandatory for everyone to come back into the office within 2 months. I'm wondering how many WFH projects are out there and how flexible other clients have been. What's been your experience, or what have you been hearing?
The cyber folks have certifications of some form or the other. I once heard a partner in cyber say that you must target to get one certification per year. How relevant is it for data science/analytics? If it is, what certifications should we get?
Anyone got h1b stamping done recently in India? Need to get the first stamp done (currently on change of status) and exploring the feasibility of getting it done this year

If you are hired for a project at a big company but it’s not long-term, how would you position/announce it on your LinkedIn? Announce you’re freelancing/self-employed or as a consultant for the big company?
Applied for an SM position at pwc and interviewers mentioned that it is for an SM position as well. But the offer came out as M. Recruiter said it is just a title and doesn’t have any implications but more I look, it does look like an downgrade. Is this common? I am currently an SM and it is in tech consulting area.
Which tech firms apart from Amazon are open to take people without prior product background as product managers? I’ve seen Amazon is pretty open via the Product manager non tech route. Anyone know of other firms that give new PMs a chance? (I’m asking for post MBA 2 year MBB consulting experience) McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
I started doing 10 min easy HIIT in the morning before work and another 10 min HIIT in the early afternoon so that I don’t need to find time to do exercises in the evening. I really start to like this idea coz it gets me into a better mood in the morning and also gives me a break during the day. I also start dialing into calls that are not important and taking a walking while in the meeting. I love home office!
Can anyone speak on interviewing with Apple’s Global strategic sourcing team? Just had a recruiter reach out to me for a procurement role.
I have 50k in my 401k account and I am planning to move back to India by next year, I plan to be vested in the 401k for long term, hopefully till maturity. In that case, when I withdraw my 401k amount after 30 years will I be liable to pay taxes in India or USA?and will it make sense to convert the 401k to roth IRA?
Does anyone lie about their age to their client? I'm 26, and have meetings with some older client sometimes and the question of age sometimes comes up - I feel like my age loses me cred.
Anyone interested in a temp (6 month contract, likely extended) Org Effectiveness and Talent role in luxury retail in NYC? Looking for 5+ YOE, title / salary commensurate with experience. Feel free to DM!
Hey guys, got an offer from a niche consulting firm with a great reputation. Their pay is lower in comparison to market but is currently higher than mine. Would it be appropriate to ask them for future Green Card sponsorship / include it as part of the offer letter (obviously, upon meeting satisfaction requirements). Need your advice on negotiating here. BTW, I’m from the UK.
Everyone has the right to choose, but you do not get to choose the consequences of that choice. You can choose to not get vaccinated but the consequences might be that you have to change jobs or vaccinated people choose not to be around you. If you choose to not vaccinate your child then the consequence might be that you have to homeschool them. Choices all have consequences - whether good or bad.
Incompetent senior is up for promotion this year and is mostly likely gonna get promoted cuz she knows how to kiss asses. A couple people on her projects already quit and no associates want to (con’t)
