Are stub years supposed to give Holiday bonuses to their assistants? I haven’t even met mine, dunno if it would be weird.
If I'm forced to use my vacation, floater, etc. towards my study leave for CFE but I have vacation booked for right after CFE, will PwC still let me take that vacation as a "leave of absence"?
WHO approaches all consulting firms asking them to provide a solution to omicron, what do they bring to the table? Thoughts? McK: “hear me out, what if we give people this pill that gets rid of the pain?” BCG: “the real question is how much money pharma can make, let me show you this growth matrix” Bain: “forgot to submit solution as they were all hanging out with their friends in Nantucket” S&: still working 24/7 on a solution with no time off for its employees D: annoyed that I put S& first

How do LMM/MM/UMM firms in Europe (London & EU) differ from NA in terms of WLB? Know it will vary by fund and city but would be curious for some data points - have anecdotally heard of fewer full sprint weekends, fewer 3/4 am nights, and more protected vacation. Know the opposite tends to be true in consulting - so is this a one off or true more broadly?

What would you wear to a law association holiday party? It’s not a sit down dinner - more of a mingle, hors d’oeurves sort of event.
I have a holiday party with my group at work (small group of 20) and their plus ones. I invited the girl I'm seeing and she said yes. I want to bring her and show her off, and plus, she's a great conversationalist. We're seeing each other exclusively but haven't dtr'ed. I'm also new to this group so I haven't really come out to anyone yet because it hasn't come up in conversation. How would you introduce her? Are people gonna ask a bunch of questions if I just say "this is X?"

Any tropical vacation destination ideas with a 1 year old? I want to plan a vacation - either Caribbean or Central America I think - that’s a bit adventurous but also relaxing. Please send ideas if you have any. (I’m currently thinking Costa Rica)
I have an offer to start at a new firm 3rd week of January and am trying to figure out timing on when to give a two week notice. For context I’m in consulting and our current projects are wrapping up by year end/we don’t get a busy season surge. I have two weeks of PTO to end the calendar year scheduled, and am afraid if I say anything before the break they’ll cut me off before my time off. Is giving notice first thing next year the best idea given my constraints?

Wife and I are on H1B making combined income of about $370k, with $300k in cash savings. Green card will likely take decades so not really something to depend on. Given all the uncertainty that comes with living in US on visa, where do you invest?

Hello, if I already applied to a job posting, can I still get someone to put in a reference for me? Or should I have gotten the reference first? Lastly, would withdrawing my application and then getting someone to refer me work, or would it look odd to the Big 4 firm’s HR/recruiting team?
This might be a dumb question…But if you are currently in consulting, do you have to do case interviews for exit opportunities? Like to be an experience hire at another firm? Or is the interviews different?

Hi there! I need some guidance. HR and global leadership rolled out some amazing new initiatives like not starting until 10 am on Mondays, no meeting Fridays and required 2 additional summer days a month. The problem is, my boss refuses to comply with the initiatives. He constantly scheduled meetings before 8 am on Mondays and after 7 pm on Fridays. He also doesn’t let me take time off. Should I go to HR? I’m really not one to complain but I’m tired and extremely burnt out. Thanks for your help!
Need tips for dating someone with a kid
I recently became PMP certified and am working as a Project Coordinator on a large ERP project. I’ve been in the position for 2 months, enjoy the work, and would like more responsibility and work from home. The director made an inappropriate (sexual) comment; it was so inappropriate that I don’t want to work with the company and am looking for a new opportunity. I would like to get into IT, but I don’t have a speciality. What are tech companies looking for in a Project/Product Manager?
Why are there no professional associations or unions in management consulting? We don’t have to study the same way lawyers/accountants/doctors do but surely we’d still benefit from having a professional society?

What are the other viable options in this case? TIA!!

Junior copywriter salary with a Copywriter title ? Normal ? Same thing? Someone talk to me!
I haven’t been feeling good about myself lately. Been depressed about my weight, my job search, and my health but I’m going to try to make a change. Today I decided to start being healthy again. I went to the gym this morning, got 8 hrs of sleep last night, and even made plans to hang out with friends this weekend. It’s not much but it’s a start and hopefully the beginning of a consistent and successful journey. To anyone going through the same thing, it will get better! We have to push through❤️
