Anyone working at starcom, how generous are they with holidays/summer days off, PTO, benefits , 401k matching etc
When is it either allowed or seen as OK to start using FTO? I recently started here and while I’m not looking to slack off and take time off, I just want to know how it works. (Plus, I don’t want to not use something that I can or should use.) Elementary stuff, I know. But I’ve freelanced my whole career until now. Thanks
Thats it! Tmw I'm going to "Doc Holiday" Distance Learning! "Well "DL" you look like someone just walk over your grave" Stay strong teachers!
Maxed PTO several months ago but am the in-charge... can't roll off engagements without breaking commitment to clients...
About to join FDD/TAS at a big 4. Should I plan on working 13+ hour days Monday through Thursday every week for the rest of the year? About to sign a new lease and not sure if I should budget to splurge on a comfortable work space/easy commute to office. Sounds like there might not be much time to socialize/vacation so that might help my costs lol
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).
Lol don’t know why I interviewed on a Friday before a holiday. Going to take much longer to hear back haha
Anyone taken bereavement for a miscarriage? It’s not our first but this one is hitting me abnormally hard. I know I can use PTO but it feels wrong to do PTO when grieving time is needed.
Do you have to use PTO for religious holidays that aren’t given off company-wide? How do you go about asking to take off without using your PTO days?
Got offer from BCG for ECT. Read numerous comments about ECT being not attractive compared to Generalist track. Also heard challenges about billability/utilization. Any views/ guidance appreciated!
I am not super keen to become a partner (selling) and main reason to join will be working with different clients, smart talented people and a good brand. End goal (at the moment atleast) is to stay for few years and return to the industry. 15 YOE
I’m struggling. I left an agency I liked last year due to growth limitations and since then I’ve worked at 2 different agencies and can’t seem to find my footing. The first one seemed like a good fit at first but then it turned out to not be the best place for me so I left. At my current agency I feel super undervalued. I’m always raising my hand and offering to help where I can and no matter what I do, I don’t feel utilized or valued or part of the team.It’s really taken a toll on my confidence

Applied for just a few roles at Salesforce a little over 2 weeks back now with a referral. I saw I’m “in consideration” for 2 roles on the portal and one says “no longer in consideration”. Does it usually take this long to hear from a recruiter for SE roles?
I was not a fan of the JIF/GIF jar stunt. But I happened to see this Funny Or Die collaboration with JIF, and I must admit that this video was well written. It got a chuckle out of me. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WLDvLOiCSl0
