How many unused vacation days did ya’ll throw away in 2017? Most of the M’s/SM’s/PPMD’s I know have saved the max and take less than two weeks each year. Wondering if this is common across the D.
What is a standard amount personal paid of time off in consulting (excluding national holidays)? Asking in days per year. Current offer is for 10 but that’s less than my old firm. However this is my first job switch so I’m not sure what’s considered average.

Everyone and their mama has been raving about air fryers. They said it's a healthier alternative to deep frying. Any recommendations? I want one for my holiday meals.

EY - ladies, what to wear to the holiday party?!
What do you guys do when you’re feeling extremely burnt out from work? Been working crazy hours and projects have been bumpy. Could really use a break but got no more vacation days left...
I’m miserable at my job but want to wait it out until I take an upcoming vacation in July. Is it stupid that I’m not looking for jobs when I’m completely bored, uninspiring and irritated everyday?
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.

Is it normal for PwC to downgrade you from a sr position you applied on their job portal to a experienced associate? I was told I will be fast tracked and the offer they gave me is on par with the base salary of a SA. Seems like I can’t negotiate the position.

If Trump is re-elected, healthcare will be gone and covid will stay for 4 more years causing suicides from depression and more deaths! But don’t worry, it’s all fake news and a hoax!
I graduated with my bachelor's in HRM and I'm wondering if there are any certifications or trainings I could do before I lock down on the SHRM-CP. I recently became HIPAA certified for my company and that got me thinking about what else I could do to add to my resume. Looking for good stepping stone certificates.

Switching from audit to advisory. Have offer internally. How much of a premium would you negotiate for to move externally to another big 4 advisory over and above the internal advisory offer?

I just finished my final interview with a partner this past Wednesday and my recruiter told me I should hear back with feedbacks on Thursday. Today is Friday and I was wondering if I should follow up with my recruiter? I have a pending offer from a different firm and she knows that I don’t have much time. She did expedite my interviews due to this reason but I feel like I’m just rushing her every time. Do you guys think it’s fine to follow up and see what the current status is or wait?PwC
Just withdrew right before my interviews with Amazon and Microsoft this week. Still remember the good old days when I used to worship em and ask everyone for a referral but now just happy with non-FAANG industry exit, significant bump and amazing WLF.
