What's the first place you want to go on vacation when you feel safe traveling again? For me, it's Hawaii. Beautiful place and the tourism industry there will be in real need of some help.
Serious question, I am a first year investment banking analyst and I was wondering if it would be appropriate for me to ask for 1 week off of vacation. My dad is suffering from a lot of health issues and he really wants to do a trip, and I don’t know if he will be in a condition to travel a year from now. It will mark 10 months at this firm when I ask for this vacation. Thoughts?
Ok so I know this seems sketch but how would I go about getting a $300k loan by Friday from abroad? Long story short but I’m on vacation and just stumbled on an amazing investment property (no it really is!) that I want to get but I’m a little cash short right now. I have enough for the down payment, but I’m not pre-approved for a loan (I’ve never tried to get one) and I don’t know how long/difficult the process is. Bidding is going on right now and I leave the country on Friday. I’m screwed?
Where can I find the most accurate pto balance at PwC? Me@pwc has a different number that myMetrics. Not sure what the most accurate count is.
Anyone here have experience with overtraining/fatigue? I’m an experienced lifter, but I was a long vacation, got back, and hit PPL 2x/week (3 days strength, 3 days hypertrophy) with 1 rest day. I’m on a deficit, eating a lot of protein, sleeping fine, etc. Last week I hit a wall where I have trouble concentrating, low libido, issues sleeping, find it difficult to enjoy things, and struggle through workouts. It started around 6-7 weeks in. Thinking it’s time for a deload. Thoughts?
Traveling to Bogota and Cartagena on a holiday soon. I have Cartagena figured out but any hotel and area recommendations for Bogota will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
SPY calls for next Thursday? Think we might trend up through the holiday. UNLESS we close under $300 today
Can I get some guidance? I have reg and bec passed. They expire in 2021 June. I failed audit with 73, then 66. I am studying for far now. I am about half way thru the material. I have some time off of work and was considering completing the material by end of next week. Then revising for 2 weeks and taking exam in nov. for audit I will start studying for it right after far exam and try to take it end of November. My goal is to get these done before tax season starts in february.
For any of those that have a vacation rental how do you manage? I can’t seem to find a property manager but need to juggle cleaning schedules and check ins. Who checks on the condition of the house for damages or stolen if you are out of state?
Planning to take parents and in laws for vacation in November. We are South Indian vegetarians. Any recommendations other than Thailand and Singapore?
Why would ur bosses want you to take a vacation?
PwC folks - do you know if we get the $$ for the vacation balance left when quitting the firm? If yes, do you get it in the last paycheck? Asking for a friend who is not on fb.
For anyone who has young kids (0-8), how understanding are firms/partners with respecting time off and how often do you get home in time for bed time?
I wish I could opt out of christmas and holiday marketing and everything. Not feeling the cheer.
My company provides a Care@work subsidy and Im currently using it for 3 days while our regular childcare provider is on vacation. Should I tip the care provider at the end of the 3 days? If so, how much? I actually do not know her rate through care.com, only the discounted rate that I pay.
What is your firms PTO, vacation, sick pay, etc. policy? BDOers, I know what the policy is and what it will be, please don’t post.
For anyone that transferred offices, what was the entire process like? Who did you speak with to push it through, did you have an interview, did you get time off for the move, what was your adjustment
All inclusive resorts are a weird thing. Rich guests come from around the world to over indulge on food and drink for a week repeatedly while being waited on by a staff who will most likely never be able to afford that type of vacation.
Strange predicament…my boyfriend ‘retired’ around 36, having been one of the initial employees of a multi-billion dollar startup. He now wants to spend time bouncing from country to country, having fun for months at a time, and would like me to join him. I can’t join him bc I have a career to maintain, and I suspect this might lead to the end of our relationship. Any suggestions on negotiation an approach with this? I’m trying to gather my ‘asks’ before having a serious conversation with him.
How does this sound?

ZSers Anyone at the East Coast PAM meeting?
In your opinion what is a better life - being really rich like making $500k a year or more but no serious relationship. Or having a partner and family but making below $200k?
I have a colleague who always shows up on our morning meetings with wet hair from where it’s clear she just got out of the shower before the call. Our manager took her aside and apparently told her that it didn’t look professional on client video meetings. I wouldn’t have even known or thought about it but someone else in our team was talking about it. It seems like a nonevent but I am curious what everyone else is thinking about experiences and expectations for dress on client video calls?
Tips for moving into product management when those kinds of roles are typically pretty hard to come by in consulting?
Got an offer for L.E.K. Consulting but with a 6 month “pilot” as a lateral hire. I want to take it. LEKers, any insights or thoughts about this program?

Asked to write a case study (along with a solution showing data programs used) for an interview. I’ve only ever been asked to solve a case study. Anyone know how I should start?
I haven’t interviewed externally since entering consulting. Don’t intend to leave but am thinking it could be good to interview somewhere to see what the process is. Rude to interview if not leaving?
