Had a final round last Monday. When is it acceptable to reach out to the recruiter for an update since the tail end of last week was a holiday?
When you schedule a week of PTO, when do you consider it to be started? Saturday, or the following Monday?
What's the longest you've sat on the bench? For me it was almost 3 months and I got promoted that year. I don't have a need to ever use my vacation days....
If I'm forced to use my vacation, floater, etc. towards my study leave for CFE but I have vacation booked for right after CFE, will PwC still let me take that vacation as a "leave of absence"?
Have a week of PTO to move cross country then start new engagement. New engagement manager hears this and says "Great, you'll have plenty of time to help next week when you're not packing." Continued
Made by me for our "entitled" brothers/sisters at EY. Hope you all leave and get the respect/PTO you deserve.
United lost my son's car seat on a 3 hr flight. It was registered as a checked luggage with the proper csrseat tag and everything. After following up with an agent after we landed, they said it stayed in EWR and they are working to get it shipped to me in the next day or so while I'm on vacation. Anyway to get points for the inconvenience, I'm Premier platinum if it matters. They did give me a free loaner carseat until mine arrives but it's kinda crappy tbh.
When did you stop traveling and stay put in your home town?? Assuming things are normal by spring my family has a vacation planned in early may, I’m due in June. I’ll check and consult with dr too 🙂
Can anyone at Deloitte message me the PTO code. I’ve been here for a three months and feel wired to finally ask for it (and not sooner).
When you left accenture and cashed out your PTO days, how long after did it take for the $ to show up in your checking account ? I didn’t get it with my final paycheck
Google Home vs Amazon Alexa - Which platform will win for brands in 2017? Will AI be the gift to give this holiday season?
Currently have an active H1B stamp and I am inside the US. Does anyone know if we are allowed to leave the US for a vacation to a country not under travel ban and still return to the US?
Is it rude to ask your RP to meet with you to talk about comp? because I am leaving for vacation next week and will be gone for 2 weeks. And I want to find out before I go on vacation.
Taking vacation days and turns out it’s actually good timing because I’ve begun getting very anxious and emotional about Coronavirus and being alone in quarantine. I had been doing fine, but (1/..)
Do you guys sometimes think you’re not living life right? Like you’re some type of robot. I think the 40 hour work week + PTO constraints is a bit much.
Going to Austin for F1 race in October for the first time. Race is Friday-Sunday. Planning on staying and checking out Austin Monday and Tuesday. I’m on vacation 5 more days (thru sunday). Should I do hill country and San Antonio? Fly to Mexico? Thanks for any suggestions! And if you have race suggestions let me know!
Project schedule drastically changes 24/7 yet they need to know PTO way in advance. I need to do all day on-site final rounds but cant schedule interviews w/o knowing project schedule. What to do?
Ya'll it is Day 2 post-vacation and I am ready to SCREAM! Please tell me I'm not the only one.
WHY do big tech companies make the candidates write algorithms during interviews? I am a senior software engineer and I can say with surety that SSE rarely write algorithms unless you are working on building something totally unique (like a new search engine).
Finally found my exit to Google. Taking a step back in terms of responsibilities but going from 98K TC > 193K TC. Couldn’t be happier but hope I don’t get bored too quickly.
Hello Childfree Friends! Question (slightly grim but I intend for it to be lighthearted)— what do people without kids plan on doing with their estate/ wealth once you’re sniffing the daisies? People always talk about how they’re “working to leave something for the kids” and unfortunately I don’t think my fur baby legally counts. It’s been something on my mind lately & I’d love to hear what others who are child-free are planning. There’s obviously spouse, parents, siblings, but what else?
Asking for a friend - are any firms open to sponsoring H1B for foreign lawyers looking to move into legal services/management consulting on the state-side?
Current h1b stamp expires Jan 6th 2020 and have an approved petition for the next 3 yrs. Have limited time to get my stamping in December. Can I still reenter without new stamp before the 6th?
How flexible is Deloitte with the start date because of H1b processing time? I signed the offer mid-may for July 12 because it seemed realistic enough for premium H1b transfer. But the lawyers seem slower than what I was used to and July 12 does not seem likely. Is this going to be a problem?
That look when I receive an email about a new Teams Channel where I find an update instructing me to sign up for team updates via Yammer and training via Zoom.

Me in my classroom last week...
I am two months short of completing 2 years of service at the current firm. I got a good offer and looking to move. This means I will have to pay back about $6k in joining bonus. Is there anyway I can negotiate this? I have so much overtime work hours that can currently be tracked to about 500+ hours for this year alone. What are somethings I should be aware of when paying back the joining bonus?
