Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode. Open to suggestions or ideas. My team is spread out internationally, so even sending a stupid “swag” gift is next to impossible.
If I take a week to visit family (without taking time off) do I need to file another LCA for my new location?
Proposal touch point near EOD. I will be PTO tomorrow and unavailable most of the evening. Does it make sense to still attend or should I just decline the invite? I’m kind of nervous saying that I’ll be unavailable for action items. First proposal so sorry for the newb question.
I learned the other day that Deloitte counts PTO against your chargeability. Is this common with most firms? (ACN doesn't count PTO in chargeability calculations.)
Checking in emails during time off, yes or no? It helps me to relax knowing everything is fine. Looking for feedback, thanks
Going on vacation tomorrow! Anyone have any good audiobook suggestions for the long flight?
I want to go from Tech Consulting to Commercial Law (UK). I know that I need to apply for Vacation Schemes, or try my luck with a Training Contract. Any advice would be much appreciated!
EY - ladies, what to wear to the holiday party?!
I’ve been planning to resign next week but my manager has left on premature maternity leave. The level above is on vacation. What is the best way to go about this?

So in my first organization my last working day was 23rd oct 2017 and for my 2 nd organization my joining date is 25 sept 2017....these dates are overlapping because my 1st organization had vacation concept(bench without pay)..... So i served notice period there and my second organization asked me join immediately. Will this overlapping affect my bgv in wipro? Everything is genuine. Any suggestions?
I want to get my start into marketing/advertising as a junior strategist and so I was wondering if anyone had tips when it comes to resume, portfolio, interviewing, etc.? Especially considering my lack of direct m/a background (mostly self-taught) compared to folks from miami ad school or vcu
My client has an opening that I'm really interested in. But we work with their team (internal audit) It's gonna be awkward either I get the job or not. 😢
Can you create a new delta sky miles account and sign up for your companies fast track promotion challenge again if you didn’t achieve it last time? Or can they block you from doing so?
Has anyone done new hire meet and greets in a remote setting? If so, were they useful? What went well and what went poorly?
Do yall keep the timer running when on standby? (I.e. not exactly drafting but waiting for emails or dig pages to come in on closing day)
If I’ve been asked to take a drug screen after I’ve already been confirmed and have used Marijuana in the last several days, will the client even care if it’s just some pot?
For those back in office are y’all just wearing masks indoors and is it affecting the way you work? I’m pro-vaccine and masks indoors when crowded. But can’t help think it being uncomfortable having the mask on working 8+ hours and taking client calls when you could have it off working at home 🏠
2 hour conference call while remote was an excellent way to listen while also cleaning out my pantry. #multitasking
Hi fishes, Need one advice. My brother is Economics graduate. During lockdown due to covid, since both of us were at home, I taught him Salesforce, just for fun. Now he has grown to have an interest in the technology and wants to pursue a career on Salesforce. But all job posting I see, always ask for BTech, MTech and such degrees to apply for openings. Any company out there willing to take a Economics graduate based on knowledge only? Any other courses in INDIA, that may facilitate this?
So I have 150k saved at 26, am I behind if I wanna get to $1 million by 35? Any advice on how to get there and whether a top mba is worth it?
Could use your help. I’m reviewing a contract for a new (in-house, freelance) gig, and the following 3 things I want to counter — or at least I’m curious if these are common: 1) Non-compete for 2 years for same industry 2) Must have liability insurance for up to 2 million while there (didn’t know this existed honestly) 3) Must give 30 day notice if leaving (I’m fine with 2 weeks…but 30 days?!) …Any advice on if these are standard and how to best negotiate them?
Which firms have the best maternity/paternity packages? Do any cover some of the cost of surrogacy? I have a medical condition that would make actually carrying a child dangerous, so wondering if some firms offer help in that area (I’ve heard of some covering IVF costs).
New to implementations but got stuck managing/doing configurations. I’m not the PM but I deal with engineers and client face almost every. Best book for this type of role besides the Phoenix project?
To the folks who pivoted from tech consulting pre-MBA to IB post-graduation, how has your experience been? What would have been helpful for you to know prior to making the switch?
Deciding on a stroller as a FTM. Read a lot of the comments in this thread. I’ll be having a winter baby in a very snowy place and won’t be doing walking outside until baby is maybe 5 months. I’m not sure I’d need a bassinet. What stroller would you recommend? If Uppababy, is it still worth it even though the Bassinet isn’t really going to be used?
How easy is it to move from a tax client service internship into a fulltime advisory role upon graduation?
