Holiday gift exchange at work (virtual, so we’ll be mailing things to people’s houses like a secret Santa). $20-30 suggested price range. I was thinking of sending a 45 miscellaneous assortment pack of little snacks, like a bag of cheez it’s, rice krispy treats, cookies, granola bar, nuts etc. Yay / nay?
Teachers leaving school on Friday’s and holiday breaks 😂😂😂 https://www.instagram.com/p/CTxwMgdDEzN/?utm_medium=share_sheet
Been with the firm 5 years. Leaving for m vacation tonight and not taking my laptop with me for the first time ever. Such a strange feeling
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
Wondering if any of you typically get a holiday gift for the Exec you support, and if you do, what do you typically gift them?
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?
When you’re planning for PTO, do you ask your managers if it’ll be okay to take time off those dates or do you just give them kind of a heads up?
Notice etiquete question. If you give your 2 weeks’ notice on a Monday, is your last day a Monday (2 weeks later) or can it be the previous Friday? Does your answer change depending on the time (morning/ afternoon) notice is given? If I don’t want to potentially burn any bridges, should I just have my notice period end on a Monday and just take that day out of my scheduled vacation before starting my next job? First time giving notice - would be interested in hearing what others have done.
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?
I hope to switch teams as a staff 1 after busy season. I also have all my vacation days for the year that I would like to use. Would you all be able to advise me the best way to efficiently switch ?
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
Should I work a bit during holiday break to get my areas in good shape or just say f this and take time off because audit is going to get done no matter what. I inherited messy area from a person who recently left the firm and leadership was saying we (as in I) need to put in extra effort to close down review notes that the previous girl left (there’s about 89 open as of now lol)
“So we’ve cut their pay, axed most of their friends, what’s next?” “Ohhh ohhh, their PTO, but make it seem like it’s a good thing”
Me after a day of PTO
How did you all handle like a family matter or traumatic event that happened while super busy at work? I’m finding myself being very unmotivated and unable to focus, but feel like I can’t take time off.
How do other consultants factor in company engagement in employee happiness? If a company has poor PTO benefits, that’s a huge red flag for me
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.
Been on mat leave since March and plan on going back in September. What do I tell co workers (friends at work) who keep asking when I will be back? Should I be honest or just stall? I am feeling super guilty about being on mat leave

Getting rid of my Platinum Delta SkyMiles AMEX. Spoke with Delta - it doesn't help my priority for upgrades unless I spend more than $25k on the card. Only Delta Reserve AMEX helps priority.
For those who did get promoted, esp. from Senior to Manager, how did you feel about your chances throughout the promotion year? Any signs at all or you are just in the dark until they tell you?
