I quit my job and enjoying my first week of vacation between jobs. Today I measured my blood pressure, first time under 130/80 in years. LOL
Does Deloitte offer sick days in addition to the PTO or we have to account for them in the yearly PTO?
If I have been staffed for pretty much the entire year (barring a couple of weeks) and I fall to 90% utilization because of PTO, trainings etc. will I be fine come year end?
Partner came on the call and told everyone that family was number 1 and asked people to spend time with family and even take time off to do so. Then he thanked people who were pulling 70 hours a week and he ended a call with asking half of the 50 people to work the upcoming weekend too. What kind of sociopathic skills do I need to be able to inspire to become a partner one day.
Book recommendations for an upcoming vacation? Into smart, suspense novels, interesting nonfiction, or anything really. What have you read recently that you loved?
Maybe a dumb question but does Deloitte gets paid time to look for a next job? And other big four?
😲 Cathy just emailed all of Deloitte with a Holiday Video -- and the corny soundtrack music 🎶 features a guy who just keeps repeating "PremiumBeat dot com" every 10 sec as an audio watermark 😆
Whoever does not post anonymously here will receive great Christmas and/or Holiday presents this year
Do any media agencies offer unlimited PTO? Seems like only new aged social or creative agencies have that option.
PSA: reminder to schedule a day or two off in the upcoming weeks for a 4 day weekend (heck maybe even an entire week). It can do wonders for alleviating stress. Today I’ve gotten my oil changed, taken my dog to the vet, cleaned up my unibrow & have a facial scheduled. The rest of my day will be applying to jobs. I’ve only checked my email once and it feels so ridiculously good not to be tied to a laptop Monday morning. Take that time off ladies!
Does your firm have traditional PTO or “unlimited paid time-off”? If the latter, do you and your colleagues take vacation? My friend who specializes inHR/organizational management said even though the intentions may be good in offering “unlimited” PTO, in practice most firms and companies always see a significant decline in people taking vacation because they no longer feel entitled to their PTO. Is there a way to take advantage of the policy within reason (5-10 days/year) or is it a total scam?
Need suggestions on where to travel to in June. That is the only time next year I'm not chargeable and going to use pto to take most of the month off.
Just got an offer right before my PTO. Do I say something now and give 3 weeks including PTO or wait til I get back and give 1 as the new place has a specific start date. Not looking to burn bridges.
recently I've been taking time off for my depression and anxiety. reading alot of books and really recommend those of you in talk therapy to see a psychosomatic therapist. this includes:
Does anyone know if OCI for infants is lifetime? It says visa “lifetime" on the card, but website says it needs to be renewed every 5 years or so (similar to the validity of the US passport).
🎏 fam: I'm an analyst on a project where I can gain some serious data visualization skills. Is this a hot skillset to have? Should I look to become an expert with Tableau/Spotfire, cont
Do you think interviewing with no intention to leave is a waste of time or do you see that as a way to assess your market value and continuously polish your interview skills? Cont.
Any ms outlook productivity trick to share? I’ll go first. Started using insights. Find it pretty useful for analyzing quality metrics and simple tools to organize vacation time, lunch time, emails that need attention. It’s been only a week but will update again.
Thanks to a recent late filing night, I’ve noticed some of the older support staff in my office are not computer proficient (see comments). Is there any training I can have them do online while WFH?
Has anyone filed a police report with LA county that have video evidence and the faces of the criminals? Any lessons learned? I recently got my bike stolen and I want to make sure the footage I have gets seen by an officer.
Been performing like a high performer on my client up to this point and all the sudden I find myself looking up a therapist and being almost useless to my team (maybe useless is harsh, but I can’t will myself to get basic stuff done at this point). Literally happened within a split moment; in the morning I was taking the lead on calls and sometime around noon, it just hit and hit hard. Don’t know how to explain it yet, but I wanted to come here and vent. Anyone else experience this?
Hello Everyone, Hope you are doing well. I need a small help and advice from advice from all of you. Recently I received an offer from MNC but a some what wierd clause is included if I get rejected in the client interview company will decide my further deployment and engagement. Quote : "For the employees who are not so selected by Client for the offers; we will discuss further deployments and engagements with the Company at that point of time." Please help me understand it.
I left my former employer in Q4 2019 but didn’t rollover my Roth 401k prior to the crash, so I’ve left it there this whole time and it’s rebuilt nicely (not back to where it was, but closer)...cont
