I took PTO today (to my job) and worked today (to my family) and just sat in my home office on the internet
Single M. Burnt out with extreme work and a micromanaging boss. Taking a week of vacation for July 4th with no plans. Any travel ideas/suggestions for a solo traveler from TX? Flights/hotels can be covered with points to anywhere within US. So no constraints. Any group tour suggestions are welcome too
Planning to accept another job soon but have a scheduled 1 week vacation starting next week. When should I put in 2 weeks notice that I’m leaving? Is it a risk that they withdraw approval of my long-approved PTO? New job wants me to start ASAP so I’d feel bad delaying start dat over a month if the solution is to wait until after vacation to give 2weeks notice
Does the Rosslyn office have a holiday party... or do anything? Just moved here (not federal).
Is it possible to pass REG in a month of studying? I am going to take vacation about 2 weeks before the exam as well.
If you had the chance to become financially independent (i.e. interest from savings covers all expenses) within ~10 years, what would you be willing to sacrifice for that? Eg building and maintaining close relationships, free time to spend on your hobbies, time to go on vacation/relax, etc?
Love those nacelles on the GEnx engines. Also, flying for PTO automatically makes it more enjoyable
Any good shows to get into for the upcoming holiday break? Something similar to Succession perhaps but open to any suggestions
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Has anyone bought a vacation rental in Orlando? Any tips? Looking at reunion, windsors, champions gate. It’s all a little overwhelming. I’d plan to rent it out part of the time on vrbo and stay there maybe a month a year.
Just remember that, at the base of it, every Jewish holiday makes it a mitzvah to get drunk
About to take an offer at EY. Want a baby soon and saw the great news about increased parental leave. Question is, can u use vacation time consecutively with it? Right now most on leave take 5 months
Somewhere between wanting to take a lengthy vacation, but not wanting my utilization to drop
Joining Strategy&/PwC soon but have a pre planned vacation. Recruiter had mentioned that it shouldn't be a problem and we can talk as we get closer to joining date to finalize. Has anyone been in the situation before and what do you recommend I do? I'm worried that once onboarded, I won't get my vacation approved
Feeling burnt out, like I’m not doing great work, in need of a major life change, and that I’m just in survival mode until the Holiday break. Meanwhile I feel guilt of having a stable remote job unlike so many others around the country. Someone tell me that I’m not alone
Just got back from the cook islands and looking for my next island vacation. What is your favorite island to visit? Best sand beaches? Good snorkeling or diving?
Can someone share the holiday schedule through Labor Day for PWC? Joining soon and want to double check my planned trips.
My psychologist, whom I have been seeing for close to a year, has called me out for cancelling too many appointments (all were because I was out of town for work, vacation and weddings). I felt attacked. I always have her notice and blocked the time in my calendar and never missed when in town. She also included in my cancelled appointments some that she had to cancel due to emergency and she cancelled last week due to vacation. I totally understand her time off but feel like I am being blamed
Can you let me know if the salary package of Php 80,000/month for staff 4 at EY is okay?
This has extreme 'bargaining with a child' energy.
would you take a 1 year long contracting role (hourly with no benefits and no RSUs) if the hiring manager said they want to make this a FTE and know they need a team, but just need to make a business case with a contractor before going to the head honchos. very attracted to the company and the people ive interviewed so far
Me with my video off on a 6:30 AM Zoom

The number of apps/utility tools we’re using is ridiculous. I probably spend an hour of my day just reading Basecamp 2, Basecamp 3, Wrike, Microsoft Teams, and slack notifications
Editing my cv for FAANG strategy roles (specifically Google and Facebook). Any tips on what to emphasise? Mckinsey + IB background with LBS EMBA; South African so would need that visa sponsership.
Upcoming Business and Technical screen interview with PwC, anyone know what I should expect? I would really appreciate any input
How much salary I can ask in deloitte USI for 3.5 yr exp as SAP SD consultant? I am holding one offer as of now.
Have people had success applying to FAANG, MBB, VC etc roles on LinkedIn or should I be going about this another way?
I'm looking at applying for a job with a company that is apparently an audit client. I'm in international tax but wasn't really aware that the application would ask me if I was employed by the company's auditor in the past 3 years and if I have a financial or business relationship or affiliation with the Company’s outside audit firm or its members (partners, managers). I think the answer is yes to both. Will this cause an issue with my application?
Hi everyone, I need your advice. I've been interviewing with MBB and Tier 2 firms over the past few years. However I was never well prepared for case studies. I now decided to take 6-8 months and seriously prepare for cases/mental math and try them again next year. I currently have Victor Chengs book and few others. What else would you recommend for me? How can i lay out a plan to study? Any source you can recommend free or paid?

Never been on the bench. Always been 90+% utilization rate. Can I just be on the bench so I can study for CPA 🤣😭
In real estate private equity, 5 years experience as asset mgr. Should I stay at a firm with zero brand name recognition (new boutique started in 2018 outside of a major financial center with 750m AUM) where I am the main asset mgr as well as right hand man of the CFO but with 30% less than average comp. Or should I move to a bigger name with less responsibility/title prestige but with competitive comp and that brand name recognition? I plan to start my own firm in 5-10 years.
Is it worth it to get an executive mba if I’m not working in the field I want while I’m getting it?
Best LAX shuttle service? Used Uber for every trip, but would prefer something with terminal pickup. Might as well book both ways elsewhere. Cost not the biggest factor but reliability.
In your experience, do any agencies foster a culture of mentorship? Meaning mentorship is encouraged, celebrated, and incentivized? So many have mentorship programs that go unused, but I’m curious if there are any agencies that bake it into their culture.
For those with an HSA, what docs do you keep for your current medical expenses so that you can cash them out later? Is it the receipt? Is it the bill? What is the best way to store those to keep them organized so you have them in the future?
During the interview, my reporting manager told me that I need to relocate to the city where the Job is, now that I've accepted the offer, can I ask to be remote and if it cannot be granted, can I back up from the offer?
