My boyfriend of 3 years broke up with me yesterday (he moved back home recently, we were doing long distance, and he decided he wanted to focus his time on rebuilding relationships with family/friends he lost touch with). Do any of you have tips of coping with heartbreak while also trying to manage work? I have too much on my plate to take time off, but I’m worried my focus isn’t going to be there on Monday.
Love those nacelles on the GEnx engines. Also, flying for PTO automatically makes it more enjoyable
2nd year in and having gone straight from undergrad to banking, cant imagine what it feels like to have a “normal job” (i.e. 9-5, weekend free, no work on vacation, can unplug completely off work)
How much leeway do you have when negotiating start dates? I would like to start in Jan since I save most of my PTO for the holidays. If I start in Nov/Dec I either won’t be able to take it or will start in a hole. Plus new job offers WAY less PTO (VP thought it was 10 days to start vs my current 25, but am currently waiting for formal offer from HR).
How do you manage sleep when traveling with a toddler? My daughter just turned two and she had been sleep trained and is an excellent sleeper BUT only sleeps in her own crib. I rock her until she falls asleep and put her in her crib. But this has to be in her room. If I rock her in my bedroom, she won't fall asleep. I want to take a vacation and I'm really afraid that she won't fall asleep in the hotel and will cry a lot. She sort of understands when we talk to her so I can communicate...
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?
Me after a day of PTO
Any fun holiday gift ideas for my SO of 3 years(gay man)? Nothing too expensive, but all ideas welcome! :)
Let's raise our glasses to corporate cards, a month of PTO, and rapid advancement. Cheers to public accounting.
KPMG firm-wide update re PTO: we aren’t AT THIS TIME considering the unlimited PTO policy EY just rolled out, we think our current policy is the right policy for our people even though it has a balance sheet impact.
I will never understand grown ups that don’t have children that still choose to vacation at Disney
Has anyone rolled off a project to take vacation because the client didn’t approve the time off?
I have a holiday birthday and I resent my birthday every year. Coworkers never remember and are too wrapped up in the holiday mad rush. Friends can never coordinate a day to get together to celebrate
I am having the hardest time in my life. Depression and anxiety have become unmanageable from the pressure to bill with only a ten vacation day policy. I don’t sleep anymore. I cry every single day. I have pushed through so much mentally to keep going, To keep logging in and billing but after two years the burnout is real. I have no more will do anything. I’m mentally burnt. My body physically aches from the lack of sleep and pure state of stress I’m constantly in. Any encouragement? Something?
You know you’re moving up in the world when you have to let more and more people know about your upcoming PTO
How do I give my two week notice? Through initiating resignation on DNet? I’m also going to be away on vacation until 1.5 weeks before...
Joining Strategy&/PwC soon but have a pre planned vacation. Recruiter had mentioned that it shouldn't be a problem and we can talk as we get closer to joining date to finalize. Has anyone been in the situation before and what do you recommend I do? I'm worried that once onboarded, I won't get my vacation approved
Has anyone worked on Holidays lately? I remove the holiday code and added the client code. What happen to my 8 hours for holidays? Can I just use those hours later?

I feel so hopeless. All my friends are leaving Deloitte and I am still stuck here. I would like to exit to industry, but all the offers I receive are way too low, especially compared to the huge salary increases I see people here get. Where should I be looking as a strategy consultant with 3 YOE wanting a remote position?
Just hit 200k base with promotion to Director!
Would you leave a good project with guaranteed growth, good manager/leadership, good wlb for a role with a substantially (+40% of current) higher salary, uncertain wlb (60-80hr/week)

So had a great interview at a company & they said I made it to the next round. Didn’t hear after a week+, then followed up & still crickets from the recruiter. Do I email the planning director?
Debating between purchasing a house in Powder Springs vs Woodstock area. We are very much inclined towards diversity which includes some desi crowd as well. Opinions about these two areas will be greatly appreciated. TIA!
It’s restructuring season. KPMG, GT, and other firms have begun announcing layoffs. Everyone should take some time to polish off their resume. It’s a cold world out there and loyalty means nothing to your employer. Here’s to hoping that everyone lands on their feet and I’ll see y’all in a happier future.
Has anyone ever had their luggage lost by LOT airlines? If so, were you able to get any reimbursement?
I can't wait to hear the feedback on this one: Deloitte is nixing employee affinity groups for women and minorities—fixtures at many large companies—and replacing them with inclusion councils that have white men. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-07-19/deloitte-thinks-diversity-groups-are-pass
Why would a consultant in MBB switch to another MBB? Particularly between Mck and BCG. Outside looking in, they seem identical in experience and opps.
Any openings for manager or senior manager
Is it bad to have basic salary less compared to flexible pay. If the basic is 30% of gross, it's a government rule to have basic as 40 - 50% of gross which the company is not following and not ready to change the structure. I heard the advantage as in hand salary will be more in that case. But what are the disadvantages of this.
