I’ve been planning to resign next week but my manager has left on premature maternity leave. The level above is on vacation. What is the best way to go about this?

Just leave, since the 2 levels above you are gone no other options. Seriously, does your company have a HR department?

OP what’s your question? Is it: A) is it ethical to resign when half your team is gone on leave (ethical dilemma) B) who do you talk to about resigning (process question)

Thanks S1! Actually moving from industry back to consulting so there are no partners. The level after the one on vacation is csuite so seems a bit over the top. Just not sure how hard I should try to get someone to talk to in person or if an email would be fine ... :/

Should I try to get someone on the phone? Or would an email be sufficient? @m1 yes there is HR @m2 no mentor program

A process question. With the immigration issues, I’ve waited too long.

Sorry to hear you’re an international OP. Sucks to be us. I would say talk to the partner you have worked with most recently. Then talk to HR

Arrow Icon

Aah I thought you’re in consulting. You should do this in person ideally but if nobody is there then you have no option. At least try giving your boss a call. Even if they’re on vacation (not the maternity leave one - I think for her send her a text saying you are leaving and want to talk on the phone if possible). I just believe personal bonds in the workplace go a long way so a conversation is worth it even if they’re sitting in the Bahamas. A phone call won’t take much away from their time off if they care about you :)

Arrow Icon

Of course if none of that works then email and bounce. Whatever

Arrow Icon

Just talk to HR

OP- seems like they dont want you to leave! Haha. Good luck and Congrats!

I think being in US dominated chats makes it difficult for us to gage consultant compensation outside of US. I know the TC amounts to a lot less compared to US due to job market & better state welfare, but if you are MBB~Big 4 consultant in London, is it possible to have an upper-middle class life (let’s say ~3 kids, spouse doing ~50k job, detached house in Home Counties, HMC private schools, nice holiday once every few years, Rover and a mini)?

PSA: reminder to schedule a day or two off in the upcoming weeks for a 4 day weekend (heck maybe even an entire week). It can do wonders for alleviating stress. Today I’ve gotten my oil changed, taken my dog to the vet, cleaned up my unibrow & have a facial scheduled. The rest of my day will be applying to jobs. I’ve only checked my email once and it feels so ridiculously good not to be tied to a laptop Monday morning. Take that time off ladies!

Any ways to get around this?

Need advice: So I met this guy (who also happens to live in New York) via grindr at Southern Decadence. Over a night of causally meeting for drinks and getting to know him, I feel like I'm already falling for the guy. It's never happened to me before. I'm extremely rational and measured in my dating life (explains why I'm single). Regardless, he wants to be friends and / or friends with benefits. Definitely not looking for a relationship right now (he's recently single after 12 years). I'm potentially seeing him over the weekend during the day. Two things - what would be a good activity / date plan? And how do I approach this? I don't want to alienate the guy because of what I feel already (which realize can change over time). Thanks!

Partners - Do you ever take vacations? I have been at my current firm for about 1.5 years, and in that entire time the partner in my group hasn't been out of the office a single time. Is that normal? I can't tell if it's standard for big law partners to not take time off, if the dynamics for my group may be different (only 1 partner in the entire group), or it the partner I work with is just a masochist.
