My first 2 busy season jobs ended (SA) and I am only booked on my new job for 20 hours this week.. I scheduled all my doctors apts for this week & am also dealing with a severe crohns diagnosis/treatment plan as well as mental health issues. Is it ok to take sick days (unlimited) for most the week this week to take care of myself? Or do I have to use vacation.. (which I don’t have much of since I got back from maternity leave in oct)

Personally, I’d use sick days. You’re taking the time off to deal with health issues.

Take sick days! You’re not going on a vacation don’t feel guilty for taking this time for your health.

Take sick days! If you need surgery at some point you might even be able to claim short term disability, I had coworkers that did that for small surgeries in the past but I’m not sure if crohns treatment require surgeries. Just wanted to share the idea

Hope your treatments go well and feel better soon!

Thank you! Thankfully I’m not doing surgery (yet) and just have to do infusions since my medications fail. But that is good to know - thank you again! ☺️

You should absolutely use sick leave. That’s why we have it!

Does HR know at PwC or other Big Four if you're getting therapy via your health insurance?

I am so beyond ready to leave my current job, but can’t yet, since bonuses are paid out in January. 😬

In the meantime, I’ve applied to a lot of similar roles (slightly higher) but have not heard - good or bad - from any. Is it common for companies to slow down hiring in December because of Q4 rush, people on holiday, etc.?

I'm curious to know if investment analyst type roles at family office roles are dead ends?

Was given an opportunity as an analyst at the family office for a well known but controversial Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur.

Due to the private nature and size, there aren't any Glassdoor reviews or insights I can find. Does anyone know if family offices are typically a dead end for progression? How is WLB?

Thanks!

Other than higher pay (I didn’t become a lawyer to get rich 🤣) what is the benefit of working for BigLaw, or private practice in general? As a government lawyer, I make 6 figures, have excellent benefits, no billable hours requirements, more time off than I know what to do with (including mental health days), a pension, a 401(K), option to chose whether to WFH or not, no weekend work, no working before 8am or after 5pm. It seems like so many lawyers in private practice are unhappy.
