How did you all handle like a family matter or traumatic event that happened while super busy at work? I’m finding myself being very unmotivated and unable to focus, but feel like I can’t take time off.
When is the new manager milestone week? I guess December right? Will plan my vacation around it.
I need a vacation 😩
I hate that PTO means something completely different for BCGers. How did this not come up when they were naming the program?
Went to kids holiday party using Lyft. My son gets car sick easily so I warn the driver right away. Lots of traffic + he breaks pretty hard = my 2yo threw up 2 blocks before we get off. 5 min later ..
Is it possible to pass REG in a month of studying? I am going to take vacation about 2 weeks before the exam as well.
Anyone free to chat? I am on vacation and have nowhere to go.. Could use a company... M here (Disclaimer since I know some of may ask that lol)
KPMG firm-wide update re PTO: we aren’t AT THIS TIME considering the unlimited PTO policy EY just rolled out, we think our current policy is the right policy for our people even though it has a balance sheet impact.
I'm off work for the next three months. My CPA title will be rolling in soon, and I'm wondering what I can do to stay mentally/professionally active during my time off. Any suggestions?
I’m on vacation (only 3 days) - how do I stop looking at my email and thinking about all the work I’ll come back to?!
Teachers leaving school on Friday’s and holiday breaks 😂😂😂 https://www.instagram.com/p/CTxwMgdDEzN/?utm_medium=share_sheet
Project leadership is telling teams that they need to fly in the week of thanksgiving and possible Christmas as well. The assumption is that we fly home the day prior to the actual holiday. 😂
KPMG > EY, its official no entitled unlimited PTO... “Please fix” and revise all future big 4 memes to adjust accordingly
How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
I will never understand grown ups that don’t have children that still choose to vacation at Disney
How long did others take to study for the GMAT? If I have 2 concentrated weeks of full-time study (taking vacation) would that be sufficient? Thank you!
Hey could use some honest opinions on this because I’m still in shock. I was preparing to give in my resignation + 2 weeks from EY on Monday to jump ship to Deloitte. I accepted the offer from Deloitte on Friday, and I just got hit with a bomb today that my brother has cancer and we have no idea what stage it’s at. Should I just rescind my acceptance from Deloitte? I don’t know how it would be taken if I start at a new firm and immediately need substantial flexibility and time off.
So, work from home, mindless spreadsheet work, no more meetings today. Acceptable to have a beer or two while I slog through?

has anyone ever interned as KPMG’s Lighthouse Data Engineer and Developer? I’m trying to find out how the work is and if there’s a wide range of exit opportunities. Would you recommend starting off at B4 or just work at a tech comp? KPMG
Mulling over an offer. Is work at MBB way more work / significantly more intense than Big 4? I feel like I have a good brand/rep at EY; not sure if effort to rebuild all of that at MBB is worth it?
Any one got any information about Point B consulting? Any information regarding the work they do, the culture, growth scale would be appreciated. TIA!!
Hi all! Does anyone have any advice/resources on how to prep for business intelligence roles interviews? For example, data analytics/viz quesions (not necessarily coding on spot but explain how I would approach a data related request). So far I have been answering based on my work experience, but want to do a more systematic prep if possible
PSA for all you jokers languishing at LGA taxi entrance: Have your driver get off an exit or two earlier and take the city streets to the Marriott LGA where a ped bridge awaits. Can save you 60 min+

Really sad knowing that it will be hard to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas this year due to COVID19...
I currently make $132k and have not had a IRA. Is it worth opening one if I expect my next raise to bring me above $139K (which is the income limit for a single)?
