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)
Has someone ever quit during a short-term disability leave? How did you go about it? Just emailed someone saying you won't be coming back...?
Posting here since the other bowls are mostly about CTCs. I've been out of therapy for a while and I think I'm depressed again. I don't eat, I can't sleep. I'm going through a quarter life crisis and just can't pull out. The therapist advised to not let the failures define myself. I tried to work things out but I feel like I'm failing again. What's worse, sick, not working, or a wrecked family? When I introspect, I fathom I lived a wasted year. Isn't it paradoxical to want to live and die?
Who has the Acura account? These anime spots are sick and remind me of Akira (which I’m guessing was the inspiration)
When taking a personal LOA, how much detail do you need to provide to your company on why you need it? I’ve been seriously considering taking extended time off for mental health reasons mostly but do not have any specific diagnosis, I’m just beyond burnt out and just can’t keep going. Using PTO hasn’t helped. I’m worried about what the perception will be of me after that, and if I need a reason for leave that can be backed by something specific such as a medical reason.
Has anyone had experience with a service dog? Either as your own or a coworkers. I’m looking into getting one for my ADA-approved disability, but I don’t know how EY will feel about it (even though it’s covered under the law). It would be great to hear your experience!
How to handle potential backlash over mandatory mask wearing? We have an employee who refused based on having COPD. We had him fill out medical accommodation paperwork, and then put him on leave.
Is anyone else tired of hearing people talk about all of the things our seniors are missing out on? I’m so tired of this entitlement situation. Yes, it would be nice to have a graduation and end of the year activities. But these things are not owed to anyone. How about being grateful for survival? There are students all over the world that seem to get along just fine without senior activities.
Does anyone work for Circle Medical?
What are your thoughts of medical marijuana?
Deloitte - what's the number of PTO days offered at a specialist master level ? Separate vacation and sick days ? Considering an offer and the recruiter isn't sure if it's 20 or 25 days
Is your school requiring all employees to be vaccinated? Mine just did. If we don’t comply we will no long have a job after Christmas break.
Has anyone had or been to a microwedding? Been engaged for a year, sick of not having any plans and people asking, just basically want it over but want to give parents some form of a wedding. Fiance is on the same page no matter how lame this makes us sound haha. It'd be about 10 people, immediate family that doesn't know each other only. Any tips to make this not boring or terribly awkward?
Just witnessed a mess on flight with flight attendants escalating a 2.5 year old not wearing a mask. We need to drop mask mandates for kids. It’s completely impractical and causing chaos for travelers and flight attendants. Europe is age 5 and that seems way more reasonable.
10 years ago today I had my tubes tied. It was the best thing I ever did for myself. It took years standing up to practitioners, reiterating my preference, and fighting for medical decisions over my own body. Ten years later and it was all worth it. No hormones, no condoms, no risk of making the hard decisions some I know have had to make. For anyone contemplating it, for anyone fighting with their docs, don’t give up if it’s what you really want.
First year associate fee/salary enquiry: I work at a civil litigation firm for the plaintiff (personal injury/medical malpractice). I’d like to get insight regarding whether their proposed fee/salary offer is fair/reasonable. TIA
I'm so sick of hearing from people who aren't scientists or infectious disease doctors stating that hydroxycholoroquine works. From every healthcare professional I've met, it doesn't. What is happening?
Can anyone recommend a psychiatrist? Been in a funk for some time and I’m getting sick of it...although I’m sure it’s work related...
Got a manager meeting on today about returning to office in NYC. I’m not comfortable doing so because I live far and take 2 trains and a subway which is a lot of public transportation back and forth.. I also have a mom with asthma I’m worried about, none of us have been sick.. I’m worried and I don’t feel comfortable going back yet especially since yesterday we AGAIN broke the record with cases in US.. but I don’t want to look bad in my boss eyes too :/ I try to be on top and above my work..
outside Wharton, what are other mba programs are good for breaking into business side of medical industry. fwiw, no experience / degrees in medical but have liked all my healthcare cases and would like to continue testing out this interest
Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...
Why there are so many stupid ass on the project? People don't even think before asking questions or sending out emails. Ruined my Sunday night! 👿

PwC peeps: thoughts on Project Fit?
I get really hung up over minor negative feedback. I know I'm doing well, I know the client likes me, I know it shouldn't bother me too much but it really sticks in my mind. How do I deal with it?
Did Booz drop Hamilton from their name?
Are stock market gains/losses only taxable if you sell? Novice to the investing scene and want to start thinking about year-end strategies...
If you were young (mid twenties) and already making 6 figures and a SME for several 'hot' technologies, would you go back to school for a top MBA? My concern is 2 years off the market will disconnect
iPhone 7 or 7 Plus? Any thoughts?
Worst client meltdown/blowup you've seen?
I'm on an L1A (Indian citizen), and on an international project. I flew back in this past Friday (one day before the travel ban thing). I now have to fly back again this Sat, bit nervous..
Who here has experienced a panic attack while delivering a client presentation? How did you deal with it and any recommended remedies?
Briggs and Riley luggage. . Anyone using this? How does it compare to Tumi (who no longer seems to have a lifetime warranty) .
First day in World of Hyatt
It's a crock of shit that ACN cares about their people. Have had talks with SM and MD about my dead end long project and how unhappy I am.. all with nothing actionable, aside from challenge yourself..
