Do any firms give you “billable time” equivalent for taking vacation or time off? I think it’s kinda scammy that firms offer “unlimited pto” but still expect you to meet your hours without giving any hours equivalent for that PTO time you took. In reality, you’re not really taking PAID time off because you’ll have to make up those hours at some point in the year anyway.
Boarded my plane, then had to get off due to "technical issues". Now my flight is delayed over 6 hours. What is reasonable to request from United for this? Never had to do this
With less travel happening, and more people spending time wfh than office, has anyone really invested in a good home office setup? I have the extra space and want to create a productive setup. Would love to hear your advice/ input. Thanks! 🙏

Hi everyone. Would any of the MBB firms let me live in a city that doesn’t have an office as long as I’m willing to travel weekly? Thank you in advance!
Did everyone take a day or two off to celebrate the holiday? Does anyone feel pressure to work on the holidays? It seems like major meetings get schedules with no thought about the high holidays
Hi ladies! I just got an offer and want the insight I don’t get from my non-mom friends. My background is in investigations but I’m a consultant and not really hugely passionate about it. I got an offer from Deloitte to do background investigations but it would be a pay cut. Not huge…and OT would make up some of the difference. The work/life balance would drastically improve and the guaranteed PTO/holidays would be a huge improvement over having to consider utilization. Help me weigh my options!

I need help. I'm dealing with multiple losses in the same week and having a hard time... I took some time off from work but I have no motivation to do anything. I don't want to go back to work and don't care about my work right now. I want to quit but I don't want to make a rash decision but need a long break. It's also not fair to my team that I can't give it my 100%. What can I do?
Do any of the top consulting firms have analytics roles (preferably not super technical) that don’t require weekly travel?
Renegotiating my contract and curious about maternity leave policies at other practices/hospitals. Do you get paid leave? If so how much time off & are you getting full pay? We are a group of about 75 employees, 6 docs with 5 PA’s and only unpaid 12 weeks off.

I'm planning on leaving my current company soon. I'm a little concerned that if I put in my two weeks they will fire me. What notice would you give? I'm not currently responsible for any big projects that would leave them hanging.
New to TX and got pulled over on my way home from the grocery store. Cop gave me a ticket for rolling through a stop sign. I would think cops have bigger fish to fry but apparently not. How do these things go in TX? Should I pay it and move on? Fight it? Will my car insurance go up? I haven’t gotten a ticket in over 5 years before this.
Has anyone ever had to cut ties with a guy friend before? One of mine has been pushing the boundaries of what I’m comfortable with in friendship with a guy and saying comments that don’t sit well with me. He keeps trying to force plans that only involve the two of us and always asks if he can come over and we can cook and watch a movie. I always say no and take my time responding back. He “jokingly” said he wished we had a private phone line so he could always get in touch with me…
