Any suggestions for a family-friendly vacation spot this summer? In the Midwest / east coast / southeastern coast (NC SC GA FL) areas? Really looking for somewhere we can rent a house and mainly just walk to local restaurants, shops, etc.
Here we go! Traveling on vacation for the next week and didn’t bring my Adderall (which I’ve been abusing for the past year). Hoping to wean myself off of it during the vacation. Wish me luck￼￼￼￼￼￼
Sending positive vibes to all as we quickly approach Q4 BF/CM Holiday Hell + EOY incremental budgets + Q1 launches. You got this 💯
How do you feel about your firm's benefits package, on retirement (401K), PTO, parental leave, and health insurance? Curious to see whether and how you think your firm needs to make adjustments.
At an all inclusive resort for vacation and honestly struggling to fully enjoy myself because I keep worrying about being unhealthy if I take advantage of all the food and drink, but isn’t that what I paid for??
Anyone ever brought a same-sex plus one to a company holiday party? How was it perceived?
What is the PTO policy for WPP agencies? If Someone resigns with approved unused PTOs? Will they get paid? Also if they resign and PTOs would fall during their notice period would it be perceived as leaving on bad terms?
Pre-Covid: how many vacation trips do y’all take a year? Any idea of yearly budget for vacation trips? I’m a fresh graduate and I’m not exactly sure how I should budget/if I even should have a yearly budget for travelling leisurely.
Need to work today but am prepping for a huge holiday party (family friends, not firm) and can't concentrate on anything work related.
My experience at Equifax. I was there for less than 6 months. During that time my manager yelled at me in front of everyone twice, I worked every holiday and weekend from October-March. My training was awful and I was put under a microscope. Every little thing I did wrong would be turned into a big deal while I watched others make bigger mistakes. My manager would tell me one thing, while my supervisor would say another (I was a contractor but that line gets crossed daily at Equifax)
Going back to work on Monday and I really want to quit and take time off. I feel burnt out and not interested in doing advertising/design anymore. Even after a long Xmas/NY break, I feel refreshed mentally but know that within a week or two I'll be drained again. Has anyone ever quit to take time off or taken a low stress/casual job elsewhere to reset their brain?
I heard some folks at EY need to request a vacation 2 weeks in advance for a 2-day vacation. Can someone share some insights?
How many times in the last 2 weeks have I had to remind my teams that it’s (some pretty important) Jewish holiday season? I wouldn’t schedule you for meetings on Christmas or Easter....(cont)
Taking PTO today. Manager texted me to join a call and sent a request asking for 5 slides to be created before noon Monday (it’s now 7:30pm Friday). This task will take a day. Suck it up or push back?
What skin care, hair care, or beauty tools will you be purchasing for Black Friday? I bought myself an olaplex holiday kit at Nordstrom.
I’ve always been a social person and enjoy the team environment. However, as I move up in the firm and over the past few months, I’ve become very anxious for both internal and external meetings/calls and work in general. I’ve been working long hours since August and will continue to do so until April. The holiday breaks are making me anxious, as I’m expecting to be asked to work and not be able to disconnect. Not looking for sympathy, just some late night PA thoughts.
Are we only allowed to charge sick days when we’re actually sick / have a doctors appointment? EY offers 15 vacation days and 10 sick days while many other firms offer 25 days PTO... cont
Thinking about thru hiking the AT - is it hard to use all my PTO then take a leave of absence for the rest of the time on the trail?
What's your favorite Europe spot for vacation?

Nice! The post animation looks good!
Please tell me something good that happened to you in 2020, trying to lift everyone’s holiday spirit.
My wife is giving birth in a few months to our first child. Should I take the full 16 weeks? Four months seems like an extremely long time. What about utilization and bonus? Getting replaced in projects and initiatives?
Let's inject a little reality into the conversation. I'm 25. $82k salary. Net worth: -$15K But I'm working on it.
McKinsey and Bain 🐠, do you feel like your firm values you? I really like consulting, but I’m considering a switch since BCG’s culture is somewhat toxic.
