Does anybody else feel like “welcome back!” emails and messages are just people passive aggressively telling you that they know you took time off?
Let’s say I plan on quitting/putting in my two weeks notice august 2 (Monday) can I take pto off for the week of my last week before I quit? - august 9-13? Just so I don’t have to deal with them giving me a bunch of assignments and I still give them a week
Caribbean vacation ideas with a few friends? Something different than Atlantis. Would like the option for water sports - sailing, jet skiing, and obviously a beautiful beach. Thanks!
Open up? Sure, I think it's time. But to relax mask requirements just as we are returning from a spring vacation? I don't think it's a good idea...
Is it easier to take vacation in transactional vs lit? I’m in lit and because our cases can take years, we don’t get coverage for vacations beyond our case team and we’re expected to wait for a lull to take time off. But just when one case gets quiet, another heats up and I can never find a time when all my cases are quiet. I’m wondering if this is different in corporate since it’s easier to onboard people for coverage. Specifically interested in specialist groups but any answers are welcome!
Has it ever occurred that EY HR system count sick days as our PTOs. My recent sick days at all counted as vacations in EY vacation calendar and my sick day time stays as same.
Any holiday recs? OPT in the US and need to be able to return to the US. Criteria: no quarantine requirement in the destination country, relatively ok in terms of covid, not banned by the US for the 14 days requirements. TYIA!
made a mistake, left my job for another and it didn’t pan out. took the first offer that came my way to make ends meet but after a week i know i will hate this place bc of the expected time commitments (24/7 on call, 15 min response to every email) i need mental and career advice, i feel like im spiraling over my career future, i don’t know how i will ever be able to apply anywhere with a crazy resume now. id love to take time off but can’t afford
What differences have to seen between consulting and industry in regards to optics? I.E don’t tell a person you’re going on PTO it looks bad, don’t question certain persons opinion etc
As a new grad who has been at a company for just a couple months, how free should I be about using my benefits - taking time off etc?
I'm a new hire and have no idea what to wear for the office holiday party. Any (serious) thoughts?
If putting in your notice while on PTO/bench, would you propose that the last day be the last date of your PTO (given it’s more than 2 weeks away)? Or sooner / 2 weeks from now?
Man, i just found out i have a leak in my house water mainline. I am shocked to see the estimated cost. $1100. That will be the highest repair cost that i have to face. Man owning home can incurre lot of repairment cost. There goes my vacation budget in a drain.
Planning a 2 week vacation in August - Ireland or Germany? Haven't spent significant time in either.
Agreed to take a 30 minute call despite having scheduled PTO...3 hours later I finally closed my laptop. This job definitely takes whatever you’re willing to give and then some...
For those of you who have left BAH, at what point in the separation process do they advise you how much of your educational assistance you owe? Before or after you're final paycheck/ PTO payout?

Salam all! Wanted to ask how you schedule your PTOs around Eid + Ramadan. Especially any of you who have flex time off; would you WFH the entirety of Ramadan? Would you go on PTO all of Ramadan?
Have a trip planned to Portugal in late September. How concerned should I be that travel may be restricted for Americans again due to the Delta variant? Are people still planning international trips for the fall? Or waiting to see how this pans out? We are fully vaccinated. This is a trip we rebooked after having to cancel in April 2020. Will be so sad if we have to cancel again 😢
Anyone know anything about accounting jobs at Northrop Grumman? How is the WLB over there?
Hi Big4 Fishes, My KPMG HR had verbally told me that I would be eligible for the relocation benefits once office resumes...and a annual bonus ranging from 10-30% of CTC But there's no mention of that in the OL... Shall I ask her to generate a new OL or not required? Thank you🙏🏾

Any recommendations on consulting firms that work with lower middle market pe firms? Mbb, big 4 rates are too expensive so most likely looking for boutiques
Has anyone heard a firm-wide policy that ALL time spent billing is to be self-written off by associates and is not bonus eligible? Have heard from a friend that a firm I am considering lateraling to has such a policy. Red flag?

How did you teach yourself the substance? Partners are way too busy to give you a lot of insight (always get tidbits). Did you have mentors? Self study? Books?
HELP ASAP pls!! I negotiated an offer as I’ll be moving out and saving money living at home but she told me she’d get back to me on the number. I think what I asked for was reasonable with the moving and all but what if she says no. I still really want this job even if it’s the lower salary. It seems many people just say no bc they think they’re worth more but I just want to take this job I hate my current one.
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Have an average book at best. Somehow an okay agency hired and then fired me. I acquired lots of credit card debt in a short amount of time. Now I don’t feel I’ll get a chance again. I really don’t want to work menial job again but that seems it will soon be my only option.
All, would be happy if you can critique or provide advice to my IBKR portfolio allocation & actual ETF/stock choice. Buying to hold for 5+ years, not short-term trading.
