Some of my peers who are going for promotion got the call from our RP last week when I was on vacation. I haven't heat anything yet last/this week, does it mean I didn't get it? :/
what actions will big4 take in the foreseeable future? EY will have a performance separation effect on 7/1. What else? Pay cut? Lay off? Or mandatory PTO?
Is there an Accenture DC holiday party?
Can anyone at Deloitte message me the PTO code. I’ve been here for a three months and feel wired to finally ask for it (and not sooner).
If I put in my two weeks notice, can I just not come into work some days? They can’t do anything if I’m already quitting right? I assume it’d come out of my PTO

Anyone else at a shop that makes PTO for creatives a total rat race? Only 9 creatives per day.
If I put in my notice right before the holiday weekend, will they ask me to leave that day or should I just wait till we get back?
Which agency offers the most time off?

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
Do people front load their 401k contributions? I put in 30% for the first 6 months and then prorate up to the max for the last 6. Also, anyone know a way where we can put an explicit $ amount in instead of percent? I'd like to be at $19,500 to the cent at EOY

I am really struggling. I have a toddler and 1 yr old. We have childcare but I’m still finding it so hard to work and be a parent. My husband is a good partner we split household stuff but I’m so exhausted and haven’t been taking care of myself. I love working and aiming for partner one day but right now I’m contemplating taking a leave. I can’t keep waking up at 5 caring for LO working nonstop then struggling through dinner and bedtime back to work and then repeat. Any advice?
