Headed to a holiday party. quick: give me three interesting non controversial topics to talk about
If you get laid off due to performance in a protected state, will you employer still be required to pay out accrued vacation, sick, and personal days?
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Does the Rosslyn office have a holiday party... or do anything? Just moved here (not federal).
Hey, it’s a holiday!
Do any of you at EY ever have issues actually taking your vacation? Given we work with people across regions on multiple projects at once, who do you ask for approval for longer vacations? I feel like I usually just add it in ARMS and tell people I won’t be there X days. Rarely do I ever get pushback (but rarely do I ever take all my vacation days)
Thoughts on vacations: is it unrealistic to be left alone while you’re on vacation, even if it’s planned well in advance? Starting to feel like time away is impossible & slowly creeping into burnout
How do I give my two week notice? Through initiating resignation on DNet? I’m also going to be away on vacation until 1.5 weeks before...
Love those nacelles on the GEnx engines. Also, flying for PTO automatically makes it more enjoyable
... Back from a week of vacation... Hit me McBee
PwC peeps: I have over 135% utilization. Has anybody used G&A code instead of the vacation code? Since I don't see that I'll be on the bench anytime soon and that 30% has to go somewhere. Tips, ideas?
Planning to accept another job soon but have a scheduled 1 week vacation starting next week. When should I put in 2 weeks notice that I’m leaving? Is it a risk that they withdraw approval of my long-approved PTO? New job wants me to start ASAP so I’d feel bad delaying start dat over a month if the solution is to wait until after vacation to give 2weeks notice
Has My People Link been updated for vacation days with the transition to Mercury? Also, if you’re carrying over vacation from the prior year, when do you have to use it by?
Taking a half day of PTO this Friday. Cheers to everyone who can get out of the office early today after a crazy week of grinding. To those who can’t, may the PPT winds always be at your back.
When you’re planning for PTO, do you ask your managers if it’ll be okay to take time off those dates or do you just give them kind of a heads up?
Does anybody here own a holiday home and rent it out? Thinking of building one but given there's barely any tourism I'm thinking my funds could go further elsewhere.
What kind of board do you have to write on in your classroom? White board, chalk board, or smart board?
For flight delays out of Europe, you apparently have rights to compensation. Article suggests you pay someone to do it for you: http://qz.com/779914/how-i-got-american-airlines-to-pay-me-e600-for-a-delayed-flight. Anyone try this?
Up for a promotion from SC to M. Just got an offer to work for a nonprofit doing the work I love, but with a 10-percent salary cut from my Deloitte base. Would of course have a better WLB. Thoughts?
Hey 🐠 - I’m looking to pivot from public sector to commercial, specifically in the health care space. Would anyone be willing to chat and potentially provide a referral if you’re hiring?
I didn’t send a thank you email following a third interview on Monday, because up until that point, everything had been so quick and I thought the interview went so great, that I would hear back quickly. It’s now Friday and no word. Did I just screw myself out of my dream job?
What should I look for as I apply to my first copywriting job? Culture? Awards? Creative directors' books?
Will high tax states reduce property taxes, and raise sales taxes to game the new tax scheme?
Have been wondering how much FAANG product managers get paid vs MBB for a like to like year of experience. Example, 4 years out of mba one would be Principal at BCG vs level 7 PM at Amazon. What does the delta look like at 8 years? 10 years etc?
Can somebody refer me at MBB, Accenture, EY and PwC? Victim of Deloitte layoff. Would appreciate any and all the help I can get!
Asking for a friend who is currently a consultant in Accenture’s security practice going up for promotion. What is the typical salary range for senior consultant’s in BCGs Platinion division?
I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card. My meal expenses are per diem so I'm thinking about the AmEx Gold card as it has 4x points on dining. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on personal cards for consultants and how to go about my corporate card as well! TIA
Just moved to industry and trying to understand pricing for pwc/Strat&, Chartis, Accenture and EY/Parthenon. How much would they each charge for a team of 1 manager and 2 analysts/associates for 5 weeks? And which one is more flexible to give discounts or fees at risk in the hope of winning another phase of project? How big is price difference vs bcg/Mck? Thanks for intel!
Any firms actively hiring candidates for public sector cloud? I have years of consulting experience serving civilian federal agencies (public trust), AWS-SAA and CSM certified. Looking for opportunities in PS cloud as a cloud consultant/solutions architect. Would love an internal referral and/or a chance to learn more about the opportunities. Can provide resume upon request. Anyone who has anything, please DM me! Thanks 🙏🏼
Is wlb for consulting in UK (London) better than that in US? Trying to convince myself that the pay parity is worth it. Also, could you please help me understand whether the total long term col (inc healthcare, childcare etc) in London is less than that in a hcol US city (say NYC), and thus the saving potential is similar? TIA!
My tech client wants a “Think Different” type of manifesto ad that will run for a year and magically increase their diversity hires while publicly making them look like (cont’d)
