I want to take time off for my new baby, but my job doesn't offer maternal leave. Should I just quit and rely on my spouse for now?
Looking for ideas for a solo vacation. 30 year old guy. Somewhere warm/beaches/relaxing. 4 day trip to unplug.
People who left accenture in recent times, how much PTO does accenture pay out? Is it limited with the 240 or 200 hours cap? Or is all paid out in full?
Have 12 days of PTO left for the year and have already taken plenty of staycations. Assuming all precautions are taken, is it still heavily frowned upon to take a flight somewhere outdoorsy?
Happy Cinco De Mayo! Did you know that it's NOT an important holiday in Mexico? The More You Know!
If I have 30 days of PTO accrued, when I leave will I get 4 or 6 weeks paid out? I don’t do math outside of work.
How are our PR peeps managing optics ;or getting ahead of bad PR) for large holiday gatherings, talent feeling pressured to join a group celebration? Financial aspect of large event vs. raises at standstill, low headcount budget? Sounds like there are it if executive heads in the sand, despite December fast approaching.
I'd like to trade off a month of vacation during the end of the year for a lowered salary. Haven't asked my boss about it yet. Wish me luck!
I plan on traveling to Mexico for a vacation. I have an expired h1b visa based on an old h1b petition. My h1b was renewed after my last stamping so my valid h1b petition has a different petition number than that in my most recent visa stamp. Would this impact my eligibility for automatic visa revalidation?
Ladies how do you manage your relationship when your spouse holds you to what you promised you would do before you got married but then you realize you can’t do it. I had promised my husband I would fast with him for an entire day on a specific religious holiday, but when I did for the first time I had stomach pains, headache, and nausea. I told him I can’t do it for that long again but he said “we’ll see, you just need to push through”.
Happy holiday weekend FBers!! The next 4 days are yours!!! Go on that run, go on the hike, go on that boat, make breakfast, go on a date, it's your time!!! Enjoy yourself and decompress, love you all!
I think if someone has served the country, they should be granted Veteran's Day off as a paid holiday. Not forced to use their accrued PTO, or sick day. It's a holiday they earned for the rest of their lives. Call me crazy but this makes sense to me.
Flying for vacation this weekend. Get to EWR extra early expecting a zoo and...it's emptier than I've seen it in a long time. Guess I timed it right.
Ladies, how do you wind down in your vacation if you have no travel plans? Need some tips
Slight vent: I had saved up a bunch of PTO to travel a ton this year (long-term project) which obviously got kicked to the dust and I have a bunch expiring this year because of that. Was looking forward to next year (including a family trip that’s been on the calendar for 2 years), but 3 people just left the team, only 1 will be replaced, and 3 more announced parental leave in spring. I have go lives through February and feel like I’m sprinting a marathon and will never get a break now.
Does anyone else ever feel like Deloitte is a cult? Just took some PTO and as much as I like it here, I'm starting to wonder if I am submitting to some cult and whether I should be concerned

Just got a rejection (no interview, just flat out rejection) for a Capital One role that I feel I was very qualified for. I exceeded all of the basic qualifications, and met or exceeded all of the preferred. Feeling really down about it as I was super excited about this opportunity. Any potential insights as to why the rejection and how to move on? Having a hard time staying positive about recruiting altogether

Can't decide if this thinking is crazy or smart: Staying in consulting for another 1-1.5 years for good maternity healthcare benefits and smoother pathway to ramp off and back on work, with opportunity to extend leave further with limited professional risk (e.g., in corporate a backfill might become your permanent fill). Worried that this A.) could result in staying much longer than planned B.) would still ultimately result in crazy consulting hours and C.) wouldn't go as smoothly as idealized
