if you can choose: 1. audit with definitely (know firsthand from a close friend) amazing company culture - mid market (overtime not encouraged, if you do need to do overtime you get hourly pay for it or can choose to exchange it as holiday, can potentially do secondment to FDD in the future but not guaranteed in terms of timeline 2. FDD with potentially shit company culture (partner scream at you for not rec ing excel sheets properly, sexist comments made - but all these info was from contd’
Started a new job this week and it’s super strange meeting people virtually. Not sure if there’s another thread out there about this but does anyone have any tips? I’m waiting until a non holiday week to reach out to people for a quick chat, but it feels so not personable
We risk exposure and bringing it home to our families every time we walk into work, yet are limited to time off work without penalty. What's your sick leave policy?
Our nanny is taking vacation soon and my mom is watching our 2 kids. A friend’s nanny offered to drive our oldest to/from preschool and watch her over lunch so that my mom isn’t racing around (cont)
TIL: Just attended the kickoff session of a Flexibility and Predictability committee for a multi-project account. They mentioned that Booz and McKinsey exclude PTO from utilization calculation.
Hey could use some honest opinions on this because I’m still in shock. I was preparing to give in my resignation + 2 weeks from EY on Monday to jump ship to Deloitte. I accepted the offer from Deloitte on Friday, and I just got hit with a bomb today that my brother has cancer and we have no idea what stage it’s at. Should I just rescind my acceptance from Deloitte? I don’t know how it would be taken if I start at a new firm and immediately need substantial flexibility and time off.
Teachers leaving school on Friday’s and holiday breaks 😂😂😂 https://www.instagram.com/p/CTxwMgdDEzN/?utm_medium=share_sheet
Anyone know Accenture’s PTO Policy?
First year C here. Button down + chinos + blazer okay for the holiday party? Too casual?
How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
"Who was your plus-one to that previous company event? Bring them to the holiday party!" "Yeah I'd love to but we actually stopped seeing eac--" "Anyway can't wait to see them at the holiday party!"
What should I do during the 3 weeks I have before starting my new job? I feel like my mental health at my current one hasn’t been the greatest so I would somehow like to maximize the time off
Is MLK Day not a holiday for some firms?
I will never understand grown ups that don’t have children that still choose to vacation at Disney
Your vacation isn’t “well-deserved”. It’s in your offer letter and it’s contractual. So take those goddamn days.
Thoughts on Google RTO office date? Will it be pushed back more than Jan 10 with the holiday season and all? Don’t want to relocate if we will be postponing RTO
I get too distracted by reddit, youtube and google to make WFH a viable solution. I’m also struggling to focus on work when I see client tasks as inconsequential in the face of COVID. What do?
Not so fun one: drank too much at the holiday party and feel like a total idiot. Nothing happened but still, lesson learned. Any advice on how to recover?
Booz Allen: sorry for the repost but I need to add details. 4 years consulting experience, MBA, doing general management consulting. Need info so I can negotiate my salary increase.
Any one gotten any updates from EY LAW about H1B decisions ? I got fast tracked and I’m pretty sure it’s been 15 days already
I would love a post-busy season bonus, even an extra $1000 would go a long way and would be a nice way to say "thank you"
People on FishBowl be like: “Hey 🐠, I’m 33 and just got a $2.5 million inheritance. I’m thinking about going back to get my MBA, but I also want to retire and move to a foreign country. Also just found out my wife’s been cheating on me with my brother. What should I name my first born child? 😀”
Looking to get a few certifications, I have worked in both IT and HR consulting and am trying to decide between ITIL, SHRM, and PMP. Any thoughts on which would be best for future, quickest to get, hardest test? I get the cert paid for and a bonus upon completion, so trying to decide which one to pursue or the order if I want multiple.
My roommate and best friend refuses to get the covid vaccine whenever it’s available because she believes vaccines gave her sister autism. We’re reaching a point of tension where I can’t bring anything up with her that isn’t topical because she’s going through a lot and becomes easily triggered by anything foreign to her. I can’t move out right now. And it also makes me sad that she’s so close minded about the world. Any advice for coexisting/coping? I predict winter will be tough. TIA...♥️
Does anyone feel like there is some wage compression going on for HR professionals these days? College recruits/entry level are receiving higher pay, meanwhile those of us with 10+ years of experience often have difficulty making more money.
Hiring Managers: if you have a candidate who has done the exact same job before and interviewed well, and another candidate who hasn’t done the exact same job before but has transferable skills, what would make you pick the second candidate? When I get feedback from interviews, it’s often ‘we are looking for someone who has done this role before’, and I don’t know how to move into a slightly different career if I can’t seem to land a job to begin to get experience in it.
I have completed my technical interview and HR discussion package everything finalized yesterday with Accenture today when I check the portal it's showing due to their is no immediate Business demand, on - hold Kind of status I could see. What it means then? I have left with only 3 weeks left in my notice period
My client just told me that their company will fail if our deliverables don’t get the job done 😅
Interviewing for copywriter position, I applied a year ago and was declined based on my book and site. I updated it, and they liked it this time. Is this a gut check or should I expect the wringer?
What’s the best diversity and inclusion programme you folks have seen? Looking for inspiration
I'm sorry if this is out of place, but is anyone interested in coming on my veteran podcast? I work for a Nonprofit Organization that provides supportive services to veterans in CA, NV and AZ and our podcast discusses issues relevant to veterans. I'm organically searching for veterans who are willing to talk about their experiences, mental health and healthcare, employment, case management, housing for the homeless, etc. We don't require you to be an expert on anything.
