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)
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?
Time for the annual vacation reminder. Carry-over vacation expires at the end of June. Please check if you have any and book some time off. Every year someone loses a week...
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?
What’s the maximum PTO payout if I quit? I’ve got a ton of hours saved up. Like 8 weeks. Will I get all of it?
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.
Looking to take a family vacation out west in August and my mom really want to go to Big Sky. I really want to do Yellowstone, but I feel like it’s best to stay in the park for a couple of nights to really experience Yellowstone, rather than a day trip in from Big Sky. Thinking we should do a couple nights in Big Sky and a couple nights in Yellowstone. Planning to fly in and out of Bozeman. Any recommendations for Big Sky or Yellowstone? Anyone stayed in Yellowstone?
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
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.
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
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
To all the 🐠 who serve/d our country and their families - thank you for this holiday weekend. 🇺🇸
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.
How does a person not get tired of public accounting always wanting more, more, more? Can’t even take a day of vacation and feel good about it. It’s a double edged sword for me because I’m very driven and career focused but damn this is always killing my vibe.
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?
Is it rude to ask your RP to meet with you to talk about comp? because I am leaving for vacation next week and will be gone for 2 weeks. And I want to find out before I go on vacation.
For HR folks, what do companies do when you resign during the holiday shutdown period? Do they let you go immediately?
Junior working with ex v5 senior in M&A. He consistently asks me to turn major deliverables at the worst hours, think 10 pm Friday/Sat/Sun night “tonight” or “by tomorrow morning” even when there is no closing date in sight. When I push back he says my behavior is unacceptable. The times when I have been able to actually meet his expectations and give him the deliverable for review, he will get back to me with comments at least a week later. Sick of these false deadlines. Help
Have 1.5 YOE at a boutique and hoping to make a lateral to a MBB consumer/retail group if possible. Anyone have suggestions on where to start?
I've an interview scheduled for this week with EY for the role of Consultant - Performance Improvement. For first round I was asked to submit a case study solution. I wanted to know how many rounds of interviews would be there and how the overall process would be like since this would be my first experience for consulting interview. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated 😊
What’s your WFH outfit looking like? I’ve been sticking to a polo up top since I do some video conferences, but it’s been PJs and joggers down low
What percentage of your salary do you spend on rent? How much is the rent, size of the apartment and location. SO and I spend ~14% of our pre tax income on rent. $3650 for a 2b2b in Boston. Asking this question since this is the first time we are spending so much 😓
Best way to cash $2000 in visa gift cards?
Any fish here dealt with a lonely/toxic parent? I recently came to the realization that my mom is toxic (think guilt-tripping, saying mother-child bond is sacred, making comparisons, etc.) and has become very dependent of me, and as much as I want to be there I can only do so much since I have a family myself. She refuses to move to a nursing/retirement home, look for companionship, and seek professional help for tasks she needs done such as car maintenance, insurance inquiries, etc. (Cont’d)
Thoughts on Aruba for a long weekend? How does it compare to other islands in terms of sand quality, swimming in the ocean, hospitality, etc.? Marriott vs Ritz Carlton?
What are good apps to recommend for quick mental math needed for case interviews? I used math gym but doesn’t seem to be an app anymore
Why does PwC's severance package suck so much? I've never been through something like this previously, no I guess I have nothing to compare it to, but everyone who has keeps telling it's insulting. SA
Is it wrong that I like when people leave or get fired? Not like I get joy from misfortune but I love the drama and scoop
Sometimes I wish I could do more if this during WFH and less working 😂 He has the life.
I need to get 3,000 PQPs between now and Nov 30 to re-qualify for United 1K. Anyone have any great ideas how to do this - or know of any domestic flights that maximize the PQPs?
With all this extra, often unnecessary, communication while my company works remote, I’ve been having an awful time getting actual work done. So I’ve started to block off major chunks of my day every morning and put up an autorespond message saying I’m focusing on a deliverable, but will be available to respond at x time and if it’s an emergency to text. HOLY SHIT. What a game changer. I can actually get work done guilt free. I realize not everyone is able to do this, but if you can, do it.
Hi ladies. I was laid off about two months ago and can barely find a lead to a job. Anyone else having issues/going through something similar? Anyone have any leads? Advice? I need help 🥺
Anyone consistently and comfortably wear heels? How do you get out of the baby giraffe phase and not look/feel ridiculous?
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
