Been on vacation for a week and I don’t want to go back tomorrow. Spending time outside, chilling with my dog and endless Netflix is so much better. 🙈
“So we’ve cut their pay, axed most of their friends, what’s next?” “Ohhh ohhh, their PTO, but make it seem like it’s a good thing”

Planning to accept another job soon but have a scheduled 1 week vacation starting next week. When should I put in 2 weeks notice that I’m leaving? Is it a risk that they withdraw approval of my long-approved PTO? New job wants me to start ASAP so I’d feel bad delaying start dat over a month if the solution is to wait until after vacation to give 2weeks notice

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.
How do other consultants factor in company engagement in employee happiness? If a company has poor PTO benefits, that’s a huge red flag for me
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.

Has anyone here ever left a big 4 graduate scheme early? Were there negative consequences? How was it perceived ? Looking to go into something very different, as big corporate life is not for me..
Does staying at a job too long make you less marketable? A CFO who worked at a company for over a decade and was fired because of cut backs was hired for temp work. An accounting manager of 6 years was hired for tech support. How does this happen?
What's the earliest in someone's tenure you've seen them fired from MBB and why? (Looking for validation that the feeling like I'm doing a sub-par job, but trying to be coachable, 7 months into my job doesn't equate to getting fired in the next 5-17 months...)
When it comes to recruiting, is it good for the industry when the first word out of HR is "diversity" and not "talent?"
