I can’t stand my client. I can’t stand my project. I can’t stand this job. My teammates are starting to get annoying. I need a break but I can’t afford to take a LOA and I have too much work to do to take a vacation. Yay me! Hope everyone else is having a great day :)
On vacation but really spending 12 hours a day working on bschool apps. It's worth it but I'm bummed I can't enjoy the break with family. Anyone else with me?
How do you spread your vacation days out over the course of the year? (Not interested in the gunners or lackies who don’t take any)
CPA Question - for those who studied full-time for the CPA (40+ hours/week), how long did it take you to study for and pass each section? I am potentially taking some time off in the summer, and I’m curious how long I should take (up to 3 months).

Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Embarrassed to be posting this but I may need to get an abortion. Has anyone gone through it and have any advice? My main concern is recovery time. I’m back at the office full-time and want to avoid taking an extended period of time off.
Hi 🐟🐠- when leaving ACN, is there any advantage to PTO payout vs. staying employed and taking PTO?

I absolutely hate that HR essentially forces me to attend diversity workshops on how to be a successful Hispanic. Efforts should be focused not on race but economic background... am I the only one?
Has anyone here transitioned from Creative to Strategy, or know someone who has? I'm starting to think seriously about it. But it also looks like an uphill climb to pick up new skills and then start a job hunt in a whole new discipline. Hoping to hear any stories of past success, or failure!
Can any EYP fish refer me to strategy associate position? I recently joined pwc MC with 1 yoe. Thank you!

Currently working in tax consulting at a big4 considering making the switch to strat consulting since I have internship experience at an MBB or move to a stratops/ bizops role in tech. For context I have 2-3 years work experience and my goal is to have a somewhat decent WLB with an interesting team. Should I go through the process with strat consulting firms or directly look into stratops?
Hello fellow Freelancers! I’ve just quit my FT job as a senior accountant at a Big 4 accounting firm. My hope is to gain enough freelance work to continue working on my own and enjoy freedoms of being a freelancer. Please send me a message if you are looking for a freelance CPA!

Have a senior consultant offer from a Big 4 and a product manager offer from a pharmacy retailer (cvs, walgreens etc), but both are similar roles in digital PM/strategy. Which offer would be best to take to help me eventually exit to the tech industry in a similar role?
I’m currently at a mid tier firm as an experienced senior, just under five years in PA. Joined as a lateral hire about a year ago and compensated above market. I want to focus on tech industry but scheduled on all type of industries from nonprofit, healthcare, manufacturing, food and beverage and etc. it’s very hard to get out of the engagements I’m currently on and switched to tech exclusively. Should I consider moving to Big4 for better opportunities?
