I think the holidays have gotten much more stressful since I got engaged and need to divide up holiday time with my SO’s big family and my big family. Can’t wait for a large house of my own where I can just have everyone over at once.
The culture around PTO on my 6-7 person team is one where: 1) no one (besides me) takes more than 1-2 days off a year, 2) people frequently brag about how little time off they take…”I only took one day off for my child being born”, 3) people make comments that I’m “always on vacation” (in the last 2.5 years working at my company, I’ve taken cumulatively ~4 weeks off).

Hello Deloitte H-1B fishes, Traveling abroad and don’t have a Deloitte phone. I was told I can access webmail and DTE on a personal device. Is there anything else to be concerned about?

I’m also in the middle of a PERM application so not sure if BAL would need other documents from Deloitte’s system while on PTO.
Does EY pay out vacation hours when you leave?
ACN: how is our chargeability calculated? I find it hard to believe mine dropped 10% in a month where I only had 4 days unassigned and holidays/PTO.
For the past month our house has been in a constant state of quarantine (kids under five) and now stomach flu has hit. My hours suck and I’m exhausted. I truly enjoy my job but life keeps getting in the way! I’ll be lucky if I hit 120 hours this month…can I take a vacation?

Curious what people’s firm’s vacation policy is? Do you have to jump through a lot of hoops to get it approved or is it more of a “use your judgment” approach?

Tomorrow will be my first day at Boston Consulting Group and I really look forward to it. I’ve always wanted to break into data science + consulting, and still vividly remember how disappointed I was when Boston Consulting Group and McKinsey & Company both rejected me in first/final rounds 2 years ago (Bain & Company didn’t even care to interview me😊). At the end of the day it’s just a job, but I just want to encourage everyone: stick to your goals,do the hard work and it will pay off
