Taking some time off before a new job. Feels like absolute freedom. How would you spend such a month? Looking for some more ideas other than my list which includes simplifying life/minimalism.
Driving teenagers on vacation around today meant hearing variations of “Ew, Facebook is for old people” at least half a dozen times, unprovoked.
My Accenture folks, my project just wrapped up I have been chargeable since. Now for next Monday and Tuesday I don’t want to take pto but rather knock out my TQ and other trainings. Is that possible?
How much did you bill in April?
How many days of PTO do you all actually take a year? I'd say I probably average around 8 days (not including holidays)
Dating an older man (he’s mid 40s, I’m mid 20s). We are pretty serious so we are having open conversations about money and whatnot. We just split the cost of a trip 50/50, which was a bit of a push for me but I did it anyways. When talking about future trips, I mentioned that I cannot always split the cost down the middle because I can’t afford as much as he can. I make 100k, he makes ~900k. He retorted that he has so many more expenses than me (which is true... mortgages, etc.) but that (cont.)
How much per head is a good contribution towards Holiday Fund for this year for a downtown high rise condo building with very few rentals? The entire building staff showed up all year in the pandemic; really grateful and want to acknowledge. Looking for suggestions.
Just found out PTO at EY doesn’t impact utilization... is that true? What is the utilization goal in tax at the staff and senior level?
What’s the most amount of PTO you’ve requested for a single trip? Trying to see how crazy I can go with this backpacking trip I’m planning EOY.
Strange predicament…my boyfriend ‘retired’ around 36, having been one of the initial employees of a multi-billion dollar startup. He now wants to spend time bouncing from country to country, having fun for months at a time, and would like me to join him. I can’t join him bc I have a career to maintain, and I suspect this might lead to the end of our relationship. Any suggestions on negotiation an approach with this? I’m trying to gather my ‘asks’ before having a serious conversation with him.
Isn’t it great having a Holiday smack dab in the middle of the week?! Seems a lot of people are calling in “sick” today. How empty is your office today?
Urgent: I am visiting Boston next week for Holiday. I want to know if I can get away with renting a car from Turo in terms of stress and finding parking when I go out to bars and sight seeing.

Am I crazy? I recently moved in with my girlfriend of 6 years. I am jewish - I go to temple and celebrate jewish holidays. Technically, she is half jewish half christian. She does not go to temple or church and basically only celebrates Christmas. Continued…
Big Law Dads: How much time do you usually take off when your wife has a baby? And do you actually get to take off, or do you just end up working from home half the time? My wife is due Mid-December, and I’m staffed on 4 M&A deals trying to close by year end, so it’s not looking promising.
My wife is giving birth in a few months to our first child. Should I take the full 16 weeks? Four months seems like an extremely long time. What about utilization and bonus? Getting replaced in projects and initiatives?
I told myself I would not be that person who quits during busy season but I am reaching my limit with PA. My mental health has been in shambles for years and I have found the years passing by with me doing nothing but work. I am anxious all the time even when on PTO, and I'm so close to just quitting with nothing lined up to take a mental break. Just wanted to rant.
I haven’t had anything resembling a vacation since 2017, so I booked one for August. Today, I received notice that a trail is scheduled to begin two days after I return. Why? Why God why?
I said out loud just now "I want to die" after having literally one of the worst weeks I've had in a long time. (And to anyone saying I'm overreacting, thanks. I am rationally aware that it will be okay, but I am quite emotional at the moment) I started a new project this week after coming back from vacation and also thrown onto an RFP response. Been working day and night doing the RFP as I am currently shadowing on the project. However the AP I am shadowing is also on the RFP. (Cnt. To comment)

How long is Deloitte officially remote? Joining the firm soon and curious when office visits and travel are expected to return.
Leaving L.E.K. as an associate for Deloitte S&O as a consultant...good move or no? As of now, thinking of staying in consulting.
I sometimes envy shorter people for having a lot more room to work with their laptop mid flight.
Does every firm end the year with endless amounts of “Holiday Philosophy “ emails from senior leadership, or is it just Deloitte?

Is $50k a crazy budget for a car? 275k household income, no debt other than mortgage (which is 1800/month), healthy emergency fund, maxing 401k.
Okay 🐟, based on a few funny comments I made on a couple posts over the weekend, someone recommended that I should start a funny blog about consulting. I think I'm going to do a quick post, and if
