Been with the firm 5 years. Leaving for m vacation tonight and not taking my laptop with me for the first time ever. Such a strange feeling
You know you’re moving up in the world when you have to let more and more people know about your upcoming PTO
Has anyone worked on Holidays lately? I remove the holiday code and added the client code. What happen to my 8 hours for holidays? Can I just use those hours later?
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.
Taking a half day of PTO this Friday. Cheers to everyone who can get out of the office early today after a crazy week of grinding. To those who can’t, may the PPT winds always be at your back.
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)
Any fun holiday gift ideas for my SO of 3 years(gay man)? Nothing too expensive, but all ideas welcome! :)
Please DM me if you are looking on selling Marriott points. I am short on points for a vacation
Were you ever asked to burn your PTO and work just because your chargeability was not priced to win the work??? Happy Holidays yeh..!!
I will never understand grown ups that don’t have children that still choose to vacation at Disney
How much leeway do you have when negotiating start dates? I would like to start in Jan since I save most of my PTO for the holidays. If I start in Nov/Dec I either won’t be able to take it or will start in a hole. Plus new job offers WAY less PTO (VP thought it was 10 days to start vs my current 25, but am currently waiting for formal offer from HR).
What should I do after a FET? What is the best practice? Anything you did/avoided? Eg are you on modified best rest? Do you take time off work to ensure that you are not stressed/sit too much?
How do I give my two week notice? Through initiating resignation on DNet? I’m also going to be away on vacation until 1.5 weeks before...
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
Has anyone ever actually used the word synergy in a client deck and it didn’t get immediately rejected?
Share your interview experience, a one to remember. I once did an interview where I had to go to the bathroom in the middle of the interview. The people interviewing laughed at me, came back and nailed it.
Thoughts on nomad lifestyle? My “home office” is 3 hrs from my parents. I want to see if others have done this success. I have friends that I can crash with occasionally on Thursdays, bus elsewhere.
Does Deloitte belong in MBB? DMBB?
Does anyone know anything about the real estate advisory practices within the big 4? Which are the best firms for it, cities, ect.
Anyone ever negotiated parental leave before? I have an offer on the table. Gave me what I asked for $ wise and PTO. But mat leave is not great. Not trying to have a baby now, but in the next 5 yrs.
Can anybody shed light on why I got bumped? I booked an award ticket (class YN), which I thought removed you from upgrade eligibility unless you have the Chase United card (have the no AF version).
Thinking outside the box: need H1B renewal stamping, eligible for Dropbox in my home country. However, going there is still risky in case of a 221g and consulates closed. Can I send my passport to my home country through a friend for Dropbox stamping? Once the stamping is done, I can travel to home country (after they courier my passport back) Is this possible or am I going crazy?
Hi Atlanta bowl, I’m an NYC creative & SCAD grad looking to move back home (to Atlanta) - what are your thoughts in the creative (Corp & agency) scene in ATL? Any words of advice?
Got an offer from a big firm. I’m currently working at a small firm. The pay increase would be about 20% not including bonus. My concern with big law is obviously the stress level and billable hours but the small firm life concerns me long term because there’s only currently 6 lawyers and we just lost an office.
Been interviewing with Delloite for a role in Risk and Financial Advisory - cyber risk infrastructure team, want to know if this a good area and what is work life balance ? Would be good to know what I am potentially getting myself into. Deloitte

Cleared first round and my on-site is next week. It just came to my notice something about visa sponsorship in JD. It states “This role is not eligible for immigration sponsorship.” I have H1B but I would need H1b transfer and GC sponsorship. Can anyone help me out here.
Very thankful to have a week each month remote on my project. Let's be real, we don't need to be on the client site every week.
