I did it! I just resigned without a solid backup plan. I will take some time off, chill, go on vacation, will get inspired again and am looking forward to new adventures and challenges.
On vacation but really spending 12 hours a day working on bschool apps. It's worth it but I'm bummed I can't enjoy the break with family. Anyone else with me?
Hi 🐟🐠- when leaving ACN, is there any advantage to PTO payout vs. staying employed and taking PTO?
Anyone else feel like being “encouraged” to take time off when things are slow is a bit disingenuous from leaderships. When I really need time off is when I am working 60 hour weeks back to back for 3 months Karen, not now during a week I’m unassigned.
Tfw youre going on vacation but still have a crap load of work unfinished and a lot more new work waiting for you when you come back... And of course I’ll be thinking about that while on “vacation”..
Dear Leadership: No, I will not cancel my vacation to continue to drive a broken plan. If "optics" seems like the best lever to pull, it is clear to me why we are where we are. #workSmarter
Took PTO to make it a four day weekend...first few hours back today and I already feel stressed out, anxious and like I want to quit. Burn out or just advertising?
Plan to leave the firm within the next 6 months and use my PTO every other Friday because I can’t handle this work any longer—it has destroyed my mental health, along with the pandemic and all the shit going on in the world. I’m grateful to have a job but I can’t do this any more. I’m fully staffed on an engagement, but can I still request PTO every 2 weeks (just trying to use them up at this point)? Don’t care about promos, don’t care about this line of work and industry
Would a company allow you to sign an offer and take PTO your second week (full week planned already) or would they prefer you start after the planned holiday and potentially not sign until then / risk getting other offers?
We spend our careers trying to get people to go places in their minds. Do a good one for yourself today: go find the sun lotion you used on your last vacation...(continued)
How does a person not get tired of public accounting always wanting more, more, more? Can’t even take a day of vacation and feel good about it. It’s a double edged sword for me because I’m very driven and career focused but damn this is always killing my vibe.
Did everyone take a day or two off to celebrate the holiday? Does anyone feel pressure to work on the holidays? It seems like major meetings get schedules with no thought about the high holidays
Getting back from a two week 'vacation' exhausted and just as much in need of a break as I was before I left... FML
1 month and 5 days until I go on vacation. What countdowns do you currently have? Marriage, pregnancy, etc
S&P Global india Holiday calendar pls....
My firm doesn't have a set maternity/paternity leave policy at my firm and I'm trying to get an idea of what types of policies mid-sized firms in New Jersey offer to their employees. How many weeks of paid time by the firm (not FMLA) is the norm?
Should an agency have a $600,000 holiday party budget and subsequently conduct layoffs before said holiday? #HotSportsOpinion

I am currently in the final stage of a process for a customer (sales) engineer position at Google cloud. The recruiter has asked me to think about my ideal compensation in terms of base salary, bonus and equity, to then have a more details discussion with her about it. Anyone with knowledge on how bonus for a sales position and equity works at Google could give some tips/guidance? Thanks!
Question for anyone who knows, I have a Europe trip coming up next year and I am trying to travel to 4 different countries (Spain, Italy, France & London.) I saw an American didn’t need a visa for these four countries but my wife is saying she was told we WILL need a visa if we want to visit multiple European countries in a month span?
I’m finding (as a new teacher) slowly purging my classroom and organizing small corners is making my transition to the end of the year a lot smoother. Any more tips?!
A partner called me from SF to NYC to discuss the deck for a client meeting on Wednesday. He just 'forgot' to tell me he's working remote for today and tomorrow..bitch!

For incoming/graduating/graduated MBAs- how did u finance your MBA between savings, loans, scholarships (%s)? If you took loans, how much did u take? Would you suggest using 401k/IRA money if needed?
can we talk about the silent rule of eating time & utilization?? especially when the client budget is low (individuals, private companies..)
Client offering you a job can be one of the best endorsements a consultant can have. If I decide not to take the offer and stick to Consulting, will my org leadership appreciate me more if (Contd.)
Which MBA programs have the most known brands? For instance while Haas and Tuck may be ranked higher than stern, I’d argue the stern name is more widely known
Any openings for Project Manager or Senior Project Manager with good experience on Agile as well. Thanks. YOE 13 Location Noida preferably or WFA type FYI serving notice period.. 2 month remaining
I’ve been a high performing IC at my company for 5 years, and every time a manager role comes up that I want to go for, I’m told that ‘it will be a pay cut’ and ‘I might be bored moving to management’ etc…I’m already the most senior sales rep in the office & regularly help out teammates. I feel ready to try and make the move to manager, but I’m always told to ‘hang in there as things might come up that will be more fitting later’. I feel I won’t ever get the opportunity to lead. Any advice?
