What firms have unlimited PTO?
Question: The company that you are working for offers cloud managed services and has been approached by a potential client. What are some areas (or red flags) you would consider before responding to their RFP? ( I started putting together a response but would love to get your insights) Answer: 1) Understanding of current annual spending vs spending if they adopted our cloud services 2) Clients expected growth rate 3) Regulatory requirements depending on industry (medical, fed etc)
Good water shoes? Something that has some semblance of balance between form and fashion for a week long beach vacation? Or is asking this a sign that I’m old? 🤔
Anyone have any ideas or great responses from a client for a Retirement Gift you purchased them? TIA
Need points help: current Delta gold, only 7000 MQMs from plat for 2017 but current project ends soon and expecting to fly Star Alliance. Should I stop before hitting plat to carry MQMs for 2018?
Remember the good old Thursday’s heading out of the client site and smashing vodka sodas in the sky club before flying home. Please take me back....
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.
I rolled off a project and after 3 weeks they staffed me back. Just the thought of going back gave me a headache and a knot in my stomach :(. Just wanted to vent.
If I put in my two weeks and the last week is PTO I already had planned (at an unlimited PTO firm) will they just tell me they're not paying me for the last week?
New job offer: client side, lower title, more pay, no travel (more time with my little ones). Current job: promotion in a few months (expected to still have lower pay than the new offer). Thoughts?
A pharma client requires a urine drug test. Will my ADHD meds make me test "positive"? If so, is there a chance to provide my prescription to a medical officer to clarify? (cont)
When crafting your resume for B school admissions, do you only include project samples for your consulting roles? Let’s say you also lead the Health committee at work - would you use a bullet point on your resume to say that you do, under that job title? Or do you only put sample projects there
Project sent out an WFH ‘rules’ email that asks for us to be readily available for >10 hours during the day. We definitely are asked to charge 45hr a week. Should I bring up the conversation?
Live in NJ but based out of our NY office. Had over a month PTO in 2018. For tax return would allocating number of days worked in NY lower my taxes?
I am the sole income earner in a family of four. I need the health insurance for my disabled son. With that said: I am terrified that I am going to be kicked off my project for not being able to do three roles at once while getting zero sympathy from my managers for my stressful personal life. I work 45 hours per week and that is all I can give.
Shouldn't industry M&A folks be given a preference over IB M&A in PE recruiting, given they're actually buying companies and not just advising some random client to buy one?
10+ YOE, experienced hire, and up for promotion to SC this year. My current project is straight up analyst work (absolutely no disrespect). I spend my days doing nothing but updating excel sheets, producing reports for slides, and doing extremely boring work (go into 100+ folders/excels and report back on who's completed what). I not only feel like this is BS, but I feel like it's going to screw up my promotion. I've never asked any analyst I have worked with to do this stuff, yet here I am...
I can't stop being angry and disappointed in myself. I'm on PTO and decided to take care a few of the household chores. I multi-task all of the time and can't help it. I forgot that I turned on the water to fill up the ultility sink in the basement and ran back upstairs to do something else. Well 2 hours later as I turn on the shower, I wonder why it's not getting hot. Then I remembered the basement. Obviously it overflowed and I had .25 inches of water on the floor (concrete) Cont

Has anyone here ever successfully complained about the performance rating and bonus their MD gave them at the end of the year? What's the best way of going about it without killing your career?

Hey Fishbowl community! Looking for referrals to MBB Toronto or NYC. Have 2 years of experience as an analyst at Accenture Toronto (1 month away from promo) - please DM if you can help :)
I went back to the office this month (3/4 days per week) and it’s been a positive experience. Plus it seems that some partners who are going in appreciated it. But the office is a 15 min drive away for me. Some people need to commute an hour plus to be there. Will they be at a disadvantage if they actually try to take advantage of hybrid WFH in the future?
I have a H1B visa (valid until Sep 2022) but I recently quit my job in the US and moved to Canada on PR. I’m currently planning a trip with a flight stop in NYC. Do I need to apply for a C visa to transit through the US or am I good since my H1 visa is valid?
Thoughts on investing into rental properties vs putting money into market? Had 2 HUD rented properties and currently selling them and unsure whether to invest in purchasing another one or just use that money to buy stocks. I’m worried that low income renters will struggle with paying rent due to losing jobs because of COVID. Thoughts?

What is the benefit of working for a big 4 over a mid size? From what I’ve seen the money is comparable and work life balance seems to favor mid size. If you aren’t worried about exit opportunities it seems like mid size is a better option.
