How many weeks out from roll off do you check out? My last week is currently scheduled for mid December and I have never cared less about doing quality work in my life. Took a nap at 3 PM yesterday and didn’t even bother to set up a fake meeting on my calendar first.
ACN-on the bench how do I record my time spent on Netflix,Sleeping and watching some training videos? Since unassigned time is frowned upon.
How have you rolled off of an engagement? I started the conversation with my Sr and I was told "staff don't tell Sr's what to do." can you see why I want a change?
Hi folks, While resigning, should I talk to my TL first or should I talk straight to the SM of my service area. Also, I want to know if we can negotiate for early relieving (say 1 month) while on bench.
Worst roll off story?
Been on the bench for 5 weeks. What should I be working on? Reaching out to people but still no bites on initiative work. Do I just sit here?
Two weeks since I rolled off an engagement, more trips to the gym and eating healthy. Muscles are popping up and I feel great. Will this last?
Rolled off a really cool team member off my engagement this week. It really sucked to see them go. Client was a turd. Will try to do better for them next time. And I hope theres a next time
Anyone willing to help me update my talent link to better sell myself for future engagements? Recent hire, been on the bench for a few weeks and wanna get my stuff right.
What firms do you think do the best job of staffing wherein you're able to get off the bench easily have the most flexibility in choosing projects outside your team?
On the bench. It's storming. It's...what day is it? And I'm drunk. I can't think of a better thing than this.

I constantly get talked down in this new team, I hate everything about this project and I can’t take it anymore. I am a single mom and I am very depressed out of this situation. I am about to quit right now, I am all in tears and don’t know what to do. I always try my best and feel like nothing is good enough. I can’t have insurance for my baby, what should I do 😭😭
Really struggling to get enough protein when striving for a relatively high-protein diet. Everyone relies so heavily on protein shakes and bars but when I consume too much at once I feel bloated and nauseous. Like I can’t get through half a protein shake before feeling ill, or half a protein bar. Has anyone else struggled in the same way? Are there certain products you found that were better than others in terms of digestibility… or do I just need to eat a bunch of chicken every day? 😂
Hey guys. I have a technical interview with AlixPartners restructuring and turnaround team. This is for their summer intern position. I didn’t come from a restructuring background. Does anyone have an idea of what might get asked in the interview? Is it going to be very restructuring specific or some general accounting/ finance/ operational sides of topics.

Interested in perspectives on training a very inexperienced person (high school graduate) to be the assistant you want them to be (requiring patience and training to develop skills the person may or may not be able to develop) versus hiring an experienced executive assistant (20+ years experience known to be excellent) for a partner slowly developing book but rapidly developing leadership (on executive level) at the firm.
If anyone is interested senior associate and manager roles within Asset & Wealth Management Tax or Real Estate Tax at PwC, dm me! Our team is rapidly growing, offering competitive salaries, WFH for the long term, great performance year bonuses, real time recognition $ and amazing benefits (generous maternity leave, Flex schedule, 401k retirement matching, health insurance, student loan pay down, numerous well-being programs and support, etc)
Maternity Leave? I’m trying to plan some time out to have my first child and work predominately with older men so this is unchartered territory. Any tips?
Serious question. I constantly see income reports published that indicate only ~5% of the US population make over $250k, ~1% over $500k, etc. Is this actual W2 reported income? Do corporations have ways to compensate individuals so that their total comp does NOT show on their W2 (RSUs, Deferred Compensation, etc.)? Reason I ask is because I see great wealth all around me. I feel like these reports do not always tell the whole story in terms of TC & investment income.
I am starting in a classroom next week for my first teaching job. Any suggestions on how to be successful? I've reread First Days of School again, but any other reading suggestions or experiences I can learn from? I'm transitioning from a Classified Position.
Slightly panicking 😳 realized I’m going to be the sole client facing resource for most of next week when my team is on PTO. Implementing two products that I am still learning. Anyone ever experience? How did it turn out?

If FAANG PM roles are the new “prestige”, what graduate programs guarantee employment into FAANG at the same rate M7 lines you up for roles at MBB? Coding bootcamps don’t seem to be answer....neither does “Master in X”🧐
I have $4K in cash that I got from family as a gift while traveling home country. I want to deposit this into my US bank. Would it raise red flag for IRS/bank if I deposit 4k in one sitting or through ATM? Do I need to fill out anything from tax perspective Fyi- another family member wired $6K into my account two weeks ago (2021 Dec), if it matters
I’m accepting a job offer tomorrow, and the new company has 5 less PTO days per year than my current company, and it’s prorated based on my start date. I have my full year planned out with my current PTO schedule, and the majority of my PTO is in the latter half of my year (1 week vacation, 3 days for sisters bachelorette party, 2 days for 2 separate wedding out of town). We already negotiated, and I feel bad going back to ask for more PTO, but I need it. What would you do? How to approach?
