My local Safeway is already stocking Valentine's Day chocolates. What would they do without holiday candy to sell? Is this their main purpose? I wonder what they do in off season (if that exists)
How awesome would it be if the amount of overtime you worked translated to additional vacation? Say you worked 200 hours overtime = 5 weeks extra vacay
Is it frowned upon to start a new job with already 2 weeks of vacation planned within a week of starting? Seen it done, unsure if it looks bad or not. Insight please!

With the holidays rolling around, what were some of the funnest client holiday activities you've participated in? Let's include Halloween too.
Looking at My People Link for my vacation/personal/and sick hours. With the new sick policy, are y'all using all 80 hrs regardless of situation? I feel like the mentality is "use it or lose it".
Been in US for the last 7 years. Currently in two minds on whether to stay here or move back to India. Every time I go back home for a vacation, it’s getting harder to come back to US (1/2)
A close family member died suddenly. She had stage 4 cancer that was asymptomatic. Never smoked in her life. Never even coughed. We were extremely close. Her sudden death has shook me to my core. On top of that I have to move my mother, who has been sick for sometime, into hospice this weekend. I’m finding it hard to gather the motivation I need to work the way I used to. I will add that I didn’t really take any time off so maybe that’s what I need but I hate when work builds up.
Question for BAH - are you able to expense taxi/uber for after hour safety from your holiday event to home? I know most companies let you and so does Deloitte. Asking for a Booz friend.
Looking for a holiday after party venue for my practice (about 80 people) near Lincoln Park. Also open to river north - any suggestions?
I’ve been on PTO since Friday & won’t return until next week. It’s been scheduled for months & was on our project calendar. My OOO response is on. Since 5PM Fri, I’ve received 4 lengthy emails....
So apparently EY believes that moving to unlimited PTO will provide a first mover/differentiator advantage amongst the big 4.. I’d advise Deloitte, PWC, and KPMG folks to let EY stand alone on this one! None of us asked for this and they are doing it primarily to reduce PTO accrual liability for layoffs/in states where employers are limited in taking away earned PTO
How consistent are your executives with their holiday gifts? one partner I support gave me $250 my first year with him and $500 last year. I really go above and beyond for him and in my feedback this month he told me I am the best EA he has ever had, so I was expecting at least the same. He has given me nothing this year (always gives it mid december or before I go on break -which I am now) also always give an e-gift card so not like it got lost in the mail. Not sure what to think...
Has anyone done an MBA and was it helpful?
I’m a 6-year Canadian lawyer working in a regional but fairly large firm (Canadian standard). I am thinking of taking time off and go do an MBA and transition into an in-house position, at a managerial level. I understand that an mba won’t make myself a better lawyer, but I am curious to know if having an mba and a law degree would make myself a more suitable candidate for in-house positions. Thank you!
Do any of you at EY ever have issues actually taking your vacation? Given we work with people across regions on multiple projects at once, who do you ask for approval for longer vacations? I feel like I usually just add it in ARMS and tell people I won’t be there X days. Rarely do I ever get pushback (but rarely do I ever take all my vacation days)
Saying no to extra work, taking planned vacations,
maintaining a good work life balance, leaving the office on
time, taking time off if you're not well...
..does not mean you are not a hard worker.
It just means you have a life beyond work as well. And that is
It took me a while to realize this.
Do not make the same mistake.

I resigned Friday from my current employer for multiple reasons, mostly because I am going in a new direction. I'm getting goodbyes already because I have a coworker who is also a very close friend who is giving me a "proper send off". I've been there a very long time, and I count a lot of my coworkers as friends as well, so the goodbyes are tearing me up. How do you cope with the mixed emotions? I've never been in this position before. I've been in tears several times today.
