Raise your hand if you are back at work today🙋🏻♀️. Give a thumbs up if you're on vacation👍🏻!
Take a break from this crazy world and curl up with a good book! Not something you have to read, but something that you want to read because you chose it. Take your brain and imagination on a wonderful vacation to fantasy land. I'm doing some time travel to get away and dream. I hope you try it. Here's to coping skills!
For optional holiday there is no option in GT&E Timesheet.
Which Engagement & Activity code should i use ?
Thanks in advance
Can I leave my biglaw job 3 months before my COA clerkship? Not sure if it will look bad or like I have a gap in my resume. I’m going on 2 years at my firm and I can’t stand it. I’m burned out and the partners I work for told me not to take a vacation this year because of my upcoming clerkship. I have ALREADY billed 2,200 hours this year. I’m absolutely not coming back to this firm post-clerkship.
Looking for inspiration. Destination needed for a week long vacation, top budget 2.5k for two people. Prefer all inclusives, vaccinated and comfortable to fly. Home base NYC
I have put in my 2 weeks resignation at EY and I have this overwhelming sense of relief. The stress of busy season will be behind me. Doing CPEs on my vacation time is over. Not sitting at my computer at 10:00 in the night and on weekends. Looking forward to quality of life. Am I the only one that feels this way?
KPMG moms: I’m reading the maternity policy and just want to ensure that I am understanding it correctly. We get 26 weeks/six months of paid time off?

Does everyone have a vacation home EXCEPT me? Chime in — good investment/bad? How often used? Kids? Pets?
Any folks seeing effective practices to minimize burnout? Whether it’s agency wide or amongst teams or by managers or whatever?
And yes I know “more realistic scopes, better clients etc etc etc” but like serious answers please I want to help my folks out as best I can aside from enabling PTO and making no-meeting Fridays. 😬
I just took my first flight in 5 months to go on PTO. Went to Cancun and felt safer there than at home. I flew Delta and Jetblue and they are blocking middle seats and their cleaning procedures are good, everyone with masks - i would not fly American
Taking 2 weeks of PTO in September to study for FAR. Already failed once. What are good tips to maximize this time if I plan to sit by dec 10 when the window closes for the year?
Anyone here a new USDC virtual hire? Debating on accepting the offer or not. Currently at EY, senior SAP consultant, trying to compare a senior solution specialist role. Comp is 4K more so pretty much lateral move. Losing lots of PTO and sick time. The only benefit I’m see is the less travel whenever things go back to normal, whenever that is.
How are things at a USDC vs traditional consulting? Work life balance? Co workers? I like the idea of a remote role because travel was getting to be to
Quick question: will I get another check for all of my PTO Balance? My got my last pay stub but there was no PTO balance on it. Thanks! Accenture
Happy Labor Day holiday everyone!
If I gave a recruiter a salary figure (not a range), and that’s the number ultimately offered, can/should I still try to ask for more?
Where else could I negotiate other than PTO?

Am I aiming too high? I was an sr. account executive/broker in the financial field for the past 15 years. I focused on both retail and B2B for clients.

However, they are rarely progressing into the later rounds. Should I be applying to mid-market or lower to break into the tech space? Any input is appreciated!

Advice please! I left a firm with a strong reputation in my industry for a firm with amazing capabilities relevant to my industry, but without much of a presence in my industry and wants to build it. I had done a lot of sales at my old firm, but through leading RFP responses/orals and building on existing clients, I didn’t really have to source new net clients. I was transparent about this with my new firm and that I didn’t have relationships in their target geography. CONT
