Wouldn’t call it dumb, but you need to decide what’s best for you!

what’s the offer/level/role if you don’t mind sharing?

I left PwC, making great cash now with a better upward progression. Do it. Trust your gut.

Protiviti, same point thought, make the move!

Not dumb at all, I'm currently trying to do that. If you're tired and care about WLB, then maybe you should look for an exit op instead.

Yes only because you said your sick of consulting. Leave ACN for industry

If you’re sick of consulting it won’t resolve your issues. So then the question is can you bear it for 12-18 months and will that get you closer to a goal / or help with a bettter exit ?

Has anyone taken Wellbutrin and experienced side effects? I’m 3 weeks into trying it out, and it’s worked better and faster than my prior antidepressants.

I don’t know if it’s just the latest physical symptom of burnout (which has been making me sick a lot lately) or if I’m experiencing some kind of side effect from the new meds.

Hello all! Changing from Vacation and Sick Time to just plain PTO starting in Jan. Staff can save up to 40hrs of their accrued Sick Time banks to use in 2022 in addition to their new PTO. We have a part-time employee with more than 40 sick hours who will try to use as much of their Sick Time as they can before Jan 1. If this person has an avg weekly schedule of 17.5 hrs, can we stop them using sick time if their sick + work time will take them over their 17.5 scheduled hours? Thanks!!

I’m eligible for 401k %match from my employer on aug 1 2021. The max total amount I could get from them for 2021 is ~$420. I plan on maxing out & my 401k has an aggressive strategy. Would you wait to contribute until later in the year in order to maximize the match, or invest early in the year for the compound interest gains? Am I wrong to think the latter?
