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)
Has anyone used Turo for car rentals for personal / vacation rentals, and if so any takeaways? Recommend or not recommend? Things to watch out for?
Anxiety during time off - I’m currently (& usually) worried about going back to work during the break. just anxious of all that I need to do. Any advice? I just want to enjoy this this holiday break
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?
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
Can any of the MDPs / Partners on this bowl ensure that Jaime and the rest of the MDPs join this bowl?? To ensure that the leadership can listen to any concerns being raised here. This is like an office level PTO
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.
Do people manage to use vacation homes with school age children, or just rent them out most of the year?
My contract has 4 week notice for leaving the job, and the new job I’m about to accept would like me to start asap (and so would I). How shitty is it to do 4 week notice with 2 of those being vacation? Wouldn’t want to burn a bridge but 4 weeks, jeez.
I’ve been on PTO since yesterday but I keep checking my emails through my phone... what is wrong with me 😣
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?
I got let go from my job while on vacation. Found out through emails removing my access to brand pages and then received confirmation about it. I’m overwhelmed and can’t focus on the positive just yet
Curious what other people's parental leave looks like for companies of a similar size and industry. We are about 150 employees in the CPG (beverage) space. We want to improve/expand our paid leave. How much paid time do you give your employees? Do you give the same amount for the primary and secondary caregiver? Please include your company size and industry.
I’ve been on PTO since Friday & won’t return until next week. It’s been scheduled for months & was on our project calendar. My OOO response is on. Since 5PM Fri, I’ve received 4 lengthy emails....
For HR folks, what do companies do when you resign during the holiday shutdown period? Do they let you go immediately?
Resigning fish - what if you had spent more vacation days than pro-rated? Do you have to give back salaries accordingly?
Coming off of my first real, full week of PTO in my 10+ year career (my fault... that was self- imposed) and WOW. I actually feel refreshed, comfortable with returning tomorrow and grateful that my firm and team did not once try to grab my attention for literally anything. Take your PTO, folks. I'm serious. It helps.
Any big companies offer same pto time as big four? I find myself at a smaller company struggling to get to even enjoy my pto as I’m always on
Best bang for your buck vacation -- looking for a decent beach immediately after busy season. Ideas??
We are just getting into single stocks. While I have a major in Economics & Finance I am new to the practical world of doing. When do you close a position. I’ve read some articles but looking.. ct’
Can anyone in (previously in) the Accenture Consulting Development Program explain the interview process during remote environment?
Has anyone done a 2-hr roundtrip daily commute for years? Unfortunately in this situation due to location of spouse’s job -it’s fairly rural and that area doesn’t have the same level of education (kid is about to start K), diversity, convenience, jobs opps me, stuff to do or parks as our current city has. Switching jobs is not an option for him unfortunately. I do feel very guilty about the long commute for him though.
Does anyone know how to leave your skype status as available when the computer is off? Asking for a friend :-)
Prior to the pandemic, I was transferring to our London office (now paused). I’ve always wanted to live a few years abroad, perhaps through global expansion at my current firm or applying for other jobs globally, even B-school. I know it sounds a bit idealistic and perhaps even unrealistic given the current situation - but for the nomads/expats, is it possible to work abroad remotely at this time? Perhaps moving from country to country? I work in tech rn.
Just found out that my godmother passed away from covid. She helped raise me. Feel awkward telling my manager that I need a mental health day.
Two years of experience out of undergrad in tech consulting. What are my chances of switching to strategy at different firm? Currently at Big 4. Thanks
What is a typical Tax Senior 1 salary at the Big 4 in the Bay Area? Looking to relocate and need to negotiate compensation.
As an ADC applying this summer for 2022 start, I haven’t gotten a chance to connect with any L.E.K. Consulting members and I really want to get to know the company better before moving on with my application. Any L.E.K. Consulting fish out there willing to spare a few minutes to chat about their work, the company, the culture etc? Thanks!
Happy Friday fishes! I landed my first product manager interview next week - coming from a non technical background. How to best prepare for it? Any resources you would recommend (aside from cracking the PM interview)? TIA!
Didn’t do well in my interview today. It’s definitely one of the hardest interviews I’ve had but i am just disappointed at myself. I don’t know if I have a way out of public. 😭
So Facebook and Google reached out asking me to apply for jobs. I am currently interviewing at Google and said “no” to Facebook temporarily. Am I dumb? I am not sure I could work for Mark Z. Thoughts?
What are MBB offices like? Are they similar to Big 4 offices? Why have I never seen 'McKinsey' written on a building like I see with Big 4
