Took PTO to make it a four day weekend...first few hours back today and I already feel stressed out, anxious and like I want to quit. Burn out or just advertising?
Should I give my colleagues holiday presents?
I received an offer from Deloitte as a Consultant - the offer letter didn’t specify amount of PTO. Should I clarify this with the recruiter or is it standard at every level?
I wish we had an actual holiday party that wasn't at the office. Accenture is so cheap.
Did everyone take a day or two off to celebrate the holiday? Does anyone feel pressure to work on the holidays? It seems like major meetings get schedules with no thought about the high holidays
I got let go from my job while on vacation. Found out through emails removing my access to brand pages and then received confirmation about it. I’m overwhelmed and can’t focus on the positive just yet
S&P Global india Holiday calendar pls....
Is your PTO payout when you leave taxed at your normal paycheck tax rate or is it higher?
EY PTO... I'm so confused. 3 personal days + 22 days. That's 2 days a month earned every month except???
Looking to take a family vacation out west in August and my mom really want to go to Big Sky. I really want to do Yellowstone, but I feel like it’s best to stay in the park for a couple of nights to really experience Yellowstone, rather than a day trip in from Big Sky. Thinking we should do a couple nights in Big Sky and a couple nights in Yellowstone. Planning to fly in and out of Bozeman. Any recommendations for Big Sky or Yellowstone? Anyone stayed in Yellowstone?
My firm doesn't have a set maternity/paternity leave policy at my firm and I'm trying to get an idea of what types of policies mid-sized firms in New Jersey offer to their employees. How many weeks of paid time by the firm (not FMLA) is the norm?
How early should you notify your team of upcoming PTO days? Does 4 week advance notice seem reasonable?
Good morning, Salesforce! I know this is a pretty general ask but could anyone who works in Finance at Salesforce shed some light on work life balance in the org? How often do you find yourself working on the weekends? Do you actually get to use your vacation?
So, it's my birthday today. I don't have very many good memories associated with it, so it tends to be a pretty shitty day. Same with most major holidays. How do you cope with holiday-linked trauma?
Dumb question but if I’m taking PTO Friday-Monday, is my end time at 12AM on that Monday or Tuesday on outlook?
Banks have been expanding parental leave policies with some offering the same amount of time to both primary and secondary parents. Do you think your company provides sufficient time off? Most importantly, would you be willing to take the full amount of time - without fearing repercussions?
Thinking of downloading my GMAT books in my work laptop (using the ‘Bookshelf’ app) so I can study on the go w/o having to bring my personal laptop. Is this safe or would it raise a flag?

Quick question...do Indian citizens need transit visa if passing through UK? Flight is from NY to AMS with a stopover in LHR (T3 to T5 transfer). Have US and Schengen visa...online forums are unclear.
🧐Up for debate: who gets the largest pile of scraps of PE/VC due diligence (or pure strat) work after MBB: OW, LEK, ATK, S&, EY-P, or Deloitte? What order would you put?
I recently received two offers: (1) Deloitte (S&O); and Accenture (Technology Consulting). Which would be more aligned to MBB/FAANG?
Curious what other people's parental leave looks like for companies of a similar size and industry. We are about 150 employees in the CPG (beverage) space. We want to improve/expand our paid leave. How much paid time do you give your employees? Do you give the same amount for the primary and secondary caregiver? Please include your company size and industry.
Can someone explain the difference between FB’s Partner Solutions Manager and the Strategic Partner Manager? From an initial recruiter call, it seems the SPM provides the consultative product recs while the PSM onboards the client onto that product and tracks performance to provide actionable recs as needed. Anyone know career growth and salary for these two? I don’t want a sales heavy/only lateral growth role like their client solutions manager roles so these seem like good compromises?
I’m looking at an opportunity at Crowe. What is the environment, culture, people and work life balance like at Crowe in Bay Area location? How is the firm Perk and Benefits?
What happens if you don't get promoted to senior after 2 years? Are you pretty much blacklisted at that point? Do you still get a raise?
Would love some advice—I’ve spent the last 2 yrs in sr level role doing policy work I enjoy. early on I discovered I was srsly underpaid & had to fight to fix it. Then leadership changed & things were good, until recently they dangled a promotion only to tell me it wouldn’t come with a raise for at least 6 mons. Then a diff agency asked me to apply for a role that pays a lot more but the work sounds so boring. Do I follow the money or do I keep doing work I like while feeling undervalued?
You have a male and female and they are the same level on a project. In my experience 90% of the time, why is the male always given the facilitator role?
Any thoughts on what to ask for as a Junior Art Director with a few years experience in Toronto? Salary vs freelance day rate vs freelance hourly? Asking for a friend!
thoughts on switching to clearview hcp from ZS? Wlb seems to be a pain point (not sure how much to be worried tbh), but the comp also much more attractive. Rest looks similar? Thinking of going at AP level.. so far people seem nice (+ impressive vault reviews)
Why do you teach? What gifts and talents do you bring to your classroom, your school, the profession?
M here. I’ve done a lot therapy and reflection and realized I grew up believing in traditional gender roles. Although I logically believe in equality, I find myself desiring a traditional “wife stays at home and tends to the house” life. I’m ashamed of it, especially since my SO is a strong, intelligent, highly independent woman who likes to work, and I wouldn’t want to change anything about her.
