Hey all! How is your firm handling travel? Is it voluntary or they start shifting towards a “no choice” to decide model? Is there any incentive from the firms to start traveling? Financial, PTO?
Any former Slalom 🐠 know whether unused PTO is paid out when you leave? I assume yes but don’t wanna ask and reveal myself as on the way out lol. Thx
Know holiday tipping culture is big in NYC for doormen etc... for those currently with (or who previously had) a front desk at your residence building that handles security/packages/deliveries/etc, how much do/did you give?
Is it a good idea to tell my lead that I am about to have a mental breakdown? I am going through something personal, and this busy season hasn’t been easy for me. I requested pto, but basically was told that it is not appropriate to use pto in busy season. I am on the edge of quitting , but I think I should at least try to talk to someone before I give my notice. Any advice for this situation?
OH SHIT THE CLIENTS ARE ASKING FOR BULLSHIT HASHTAG HOLIDAY IDEAS AGAIN. What should I do?
I see a very faint second line testing on the day of my period.. low key freaking out because in the last week on vacation I have dyed my hair with balayage, eaten sushi, drank a beer or cocktail with dinner every night and had two cups of coffee every morning. Obviously ceasing all of this but have I already caused damage?
What does OOO stand for? Wrong answers only. (Inspired by PTO) thread. I’ll start with Observing Other Opportunities.

Is it possible to designate your last day of employment over a holiday? Say Thanksgiving this year (11/26/2021) to take advantage of the holiday benefit and get that paycheck?
Drove through downtown Santa Barbara last night. Restaurants were doing indoor dining and there were lots of crowds with no masks. What are you all seeing this holiday weekend?
What do you do when you legitimately have run out of PTO because you’re sick a lot? I take prescribed medication that weakens my immune system but don’t want to explain that if I can avoid it.
If you are no longer accruing vacation time, can you charge vacation instead of holiday over Thanksgiving and save your holiday time for another time? Does it matter?
Uber messaged me saying the driver reported damage for a ride I took with my coworkers after the holiday party. Scam? Anybody had similar experiences before?
Hello everyone, I have got 18 days of unused PTO and I am planning to initiate my resignation process in few days. Couple of questions - Does Deloitte payout all the unused PTO days ? Is there a limit to the number of pay out days ? - if answer to above question is no, how did you all handle this situation. Did you take PTO before notice period ? *trying to stay in good terms ! Appreciate the suggestions/insights. Deloitte
Anyone have experience using MS Teams chat over Southwest in-flight Wi-Fi? Not planning on being “that person” attending a meeting on a plane, just responding to any MS Teams chats that come my way so I don’t have to take PTO.

Thinking about joining tech. 🐠 What are the non-FAANG companies do you see the highest potential (thinking that joining FAANG today probably doesn’t provide that much upside)? From a preference standpoint, most interested in fin tech and health tech. But trying to solve for RSU potential above all
First World problem Been traveling while working remote for a year now and think I’m getting super depressed about it ending. I don’t know how I’m going to go back to the office grind and not constantly moving.

have an offer at a boutique consulting firm for a Director position with a 30% hike. i’m not sure if the non brand name will affect in the long run. from big 4 i’ve been able to get MBB interviews (which i wasn’t able convert) but will the boutique firm basically preclude me from top tier consulting offers? the boutique consulting firm usually does long term implementation projects and fewer core strategy projects but is the hike in pay and position worth it? anyone gone through a similar path?
Hypothetical situation - if your client is a health provider and you get an email from the CEO that says all health workers can get the vaccine. But you know that you will never see a patient and work from home at a computer. Do you get the vaccine by using your client ID or wait for the general public rollout?
How many days should I wait before I reach out to the recruiter to see what the thoughts of hiring team are?
Should I keep applying or give up? I graduated from a mediocre law school 10 years ago (cum laude) and have a tax llm from a good school but mediocre grades(3.1) . I am licensed. I work in public accounting and am at one of the large firms. I do tax controversy, writing, research, international. I applied for tax law firm job over the years - rejected. I interviewed with a small firm today - it's an intellectual step down - I can't do that. Big law still an option or stop disappointing myself?
