Planning a 2 week vacation in August - Ireland or Germany? Haven't spent significant time in either.
ACN peeps...I want to take PTO while on the bench. Is there anyone besides CC/TFS that I should notify?
Resigning fish - what if you had spent more vacation days than pro-rated? Do you have to give back salaries accordingly?
I know I should take days off, but I’m struggling to find a reason to. It’s not like I can go anywhere, and I’ll be bombarded with emails and calls either way. Anyone else saving your PTO for end of the year?
Any fun family holiday ideas on the east coast (New England or NY preferably)? Looking for a mix of outdoor activities and sightseeing
I work in a group that has had to come in to the office regularly during COVID (lots of work with original documents and wet ink signatures). It’s real estate and title companies still require wet ink documents. One junior has refused to come in because he says he’s concerned about COVID. We all wear masks, close our doors, and socially distance. We’ve all had to pick up the slack for him. Just found out he’s taking his second vacation during COVID and visiting family in FL. I could scream.
Caribbean vacation ideas with a few friends? Something different than Atlantis. Would like the option for water sports - sailing, jet skiing, and obviously a beautiful beach. Thanks!
Does anybody else feel like “welcome back!” emails and messages are just people passive aggressively telling you that they know you took time off?
Open up? Sure, I think it's time. But to relax mask requirements just as we are returning from a spring vacation? I don't think it's a good idea...
7 days until vacation
What differences have to seen between consulting and industry in regards to optics? I.E don’t tell a person you’re going on PTO it looks bad, don’t question certain persons opinion etc
Holiday bonuses? Just got notice of ours and it seems very skimpy... wondering if B4 or other companies give staff holiday bonuses?
If you have a flight, block the dang time off on your calendar. It's not hard. And don't sass me and say your calendar is up to date, when it ain't.
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
A&M fishes do you feel pressure while taking vacations as your comp is tied to billable hours? Also what’s the policy on remote work, can people work from another country (eg. Canada or Europe ) for a few days if they are supporting during US work hours. Big 4 is strict about international work location, so just curious.
Anyone with a CSR Use the KLM lounge in IAH? The wait crew is ridiculous/ OCD. Picks up my teacup multiple times to check if it's empty. HANDS OFF BRAH 🙄 Happens every week
Interviewing for a Slalom industry MD role, managing and growing a portfolio. Anyone know how base and bonus ranges look? (Managing a 20mm industry portfolio?)
What is with people at EVP level who use efficiency as an excuse to be curt and unkind? Bonus points if you can explain why they’d humiliate coworkers in front of the client.
Had a dream where I was in an alternate reality. Everyone hated me, I had been fired from Deloitte for incompetence, and I was somehow part-owner of an Arena Football team. What the hell does that mean
Experienced hire difficulties I’ve been trying to get an opportunity within one of the Big 4 since May. Networked into phone conversations with multiple partners in my area of expertise. Con’t

Just received a verbal beat down from the client for something that is specifically listed in our agreement as theirs to own. Headed to dinner to mainline some wine. 🙋🏻♀️🍷
Offered a position on strategy team of Fortune50. Pay would be only a few thousand more. Want to try for B-school in a year. Should I stay in consulting or take offer to try/learn something new?
LAX's rental car system is awful
Is this behavior normal? I just left a call with the SM, and Partner of a project, and the SM threw my manager under the bus. My M wasn’t on the call to defend himself, & I know for a fact that the fault was more on the SM not being present on the project, not communicating details he got from client to rest of team. M is also my coach and has been awesome at mentoring me and taking me under his wing, but he’s leaving for industry because the hours and WLB has brutal for him & he has a family.
Is there any point to applying to places right now? Or is everyone on a hiring freeze? I unfortunately got laid off :/
Has anyone heard of layoffs happening yet? Not trying to stir the pot, just genuinely want to know

I'm platinum on delta. If I book a flight for my friend who has no status will she get any of the perks? Specifically wondering about the 3 free checked bags. Thanks
This project is running itself to the ground faster than coffee with milk running through my lactose intolerant body.
So I am a W-2 salaried CFP at a small IRA and I have a neighbor who runs his own practice and asked if I knew anyone who would be looking for part time paraplanning work. After thinking about it I got to wondering if its compliant and okay for an advisor to do something like that on the side for extra income or would that be considered a conflict on interest as an OBA?
