Client's assistant won't shut up about buying a villa in Tuscany. Bitch, I know how much you make. A weekend at The Holiday Inn would be stretching it. #backdowntoearthplease
Just back from vacation and hit with a fresh realization of how bullshit my job is. All. I. Do. Is. Format. And. Email. Time to start looking outside of consulting, I guess.
Dear Client, I really appreciate you pay for my food when I'm on the road. Happy holiday! Truly Yours, consultant.
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...
Teachers leaving school on Friday’s and holiday breaks 😂😂😂 https://www.instagram.com/p/CTxwMgdDEzN/?utm_medium=share_sheet

We risk exposure and bringing it home to our families every time we walk into work, yet are limited to time off work without penalty. What's your sick leave policy?
Has anyone bought a vacation rental in Orlando? Any tips? Looking at reunion, windsors, champions gate. It’s all a little overwhelming. I’d plan to rent it out part of the time on vrbo and stay there maybe a month a year.
There’s a scene in the 3rd season of the west wing where josh is talking to Leo about wanting to go away on vacation to Tahiti with a woman he’s dating. Josh is reluctant to take time off, as a lot..
Does anyone own a second home for vacation? If so, how did you finance/purchase it? Considering doing some serious research on the prospect, and would not rent it out, but simply use on weekends and such.
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 successfully negotiate their vacation time? I have never had more than 3 weeks off and well past 10 YOE...
Just got an offer to work someplace else. Pay, PTO, medical and 401k seem good. What else could I try to negotiate?
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
Any moms here living in WA state and availed the 12 weeks parental leave( baby bonding time off) offered by the state recently?
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.
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!
What is the salary difference between an L10 Senior Recruiting Analyst and an L9 Recruiting Specialist??
I accepted an offer from another firm and gave notice to my direct partner on Friday. He asked me to wait a few days as a courtesy before giving notice to the firm’s managing partner. The partner I work for knows several of the attorneys at the firm where I got the offer. He is now coming back to me and saying my current firm will match the salary, offer better hours, better title, etc. Needless to say, I’m torn. How bad is it to walk back on an accepted offer? We are in a smaller legal market.
How does everyone feel about the online SHRM learning for SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP for Certification? Do you skip around? Do you follow the path? Where does one start?
What expense have you gotten away with
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
If the next administration makes it easier for high skilled immigrants to work in the US, do you expect SWE and tech comp packages to drop a ton due to increased supply of labor?
First time on bench since I joined last year. Feels weird to have pretty much nothing to do but really needed the time off. Should I try to find a project right away or wait for one more week? ⛱
Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
Any ladies work for Huron? How is the culture, pay, and work life balance? How about the company culture?
Possible overseas role. Have family I can stay with instead of hotel. Should I mention it to project manager as a cost saving so I will get staffed there?
Anyone aware of a Delta fast track I could sign up for? Not a status match, just a from scratch fast track. Know they have done this in the past often aimed at specific companies. Thanks :)
Are you supposed to save up for an MBA or do most people finance it with loans? I have loans from UG too.
For people managers, will you choose to downgrade to individual contributors at FAANG or continue being a people manager in traditional industries (e.g., finance, healthcare)?
