Just had a look at some start-ups that are hiring and a lot of them offer unlimited vacation days... think this is a good practice?

That sounds a lot like an "undefined" number of vacation days. Start ups are small enough to make sure that policy isn't abused.

My roommate works for a start up with unlimited vacations. She took less days than I did last year - almost every time she asked to take a block off they told her she couldn't because her current project was mission critical.

We have unlimited sick days but vacation is capped with good rollover and we have super flexible work schedules. Agreed with those here saying unlimited vacation tends to mean less is taken because it's up to managers and coverage (versus being your specific benefit).

I’ve always been a social person and enjoy the team environment. However, as I move up in the firm and over the past few months, I’ve become very anxious for both internal and external meetings/calls and work in general. I’ve been working long hours since August and will continue to do so until April. The holiday breaks are making me anxious, as I’m expecting to be asked to work and not be able to disconnect. Not looking for sympathy, just some late night PA thoughts.

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
