Could some of the moms share their favorite Christmas traditions and activities? Looking for some positivity this holiday and would love to learn about special things that you do with your families.
Moved into a new building a couple months ago. There’s a doorman who will see me struggling with packages or bags and never offers to help (automatic door so he’s not even actually opening the door). Am I really expected to give him a holiday bonus at the end of the year??
My dog is the biggest mamas boy. We will be out of town for a week soon and when we took this vacation last year, he wouldn't walk with anyone but me. I want my cousins kids to be able to walk him this year, any ideas on how to do this?
Just got a call from my Mom asking me how to read a pivot table breaking down the vacation itinerary I sent her 🙈 😳
Hi y’all, I need some advice. I went on a vacation recently with my boyfriend’s family and feel uncomfortable around his younger sister. She’s a few years older then me and I caught her just blatantly staring at me a couple times. She doesn’t acknowledge my existence in a group setting like she’ll look at everyone else except me. She didn’t try to talk to me at all until she had to. I would mainly try to start conversation and even then she didn’t continue it. She lives a couple hours away so I

Hi everyone. Starting my MBA in the fall and have some time off beforehand. For those who are in an MBA program or who already completed theirs, is there anything you wish you brought to campus? I’m thinking specific clothes, technology, etc.? Kind of random, I know, but want to set myself up for success. I’m F and will be going to school somewhere with winter.
Went through a bad burnout a few months ago and ended up taking some time off during the Christmas holidays to recover. Now that I am back, I feel disengaged and can’t help but constantly feel like I don’t belong here. Anyone else go through a similar experience?
Has anyone flew this week? What is it like at the airports? I’m supposed to travel to North California this week for vacation but don’t know if I should go anymore
Any suggestions for neighborhoods/streets/displays of holiday decorations and lighting? Back in LA there were neighborhoods known to have the best decorations and we’d do a drive through it. Anything like that here?
There is a deli that I visit everyday for its salad bar and the guy at the salad bar is so nice, prompt, cheerful and overall great service. But I always pay for it at the counter (not at the salad bar). I do want to give him a huge tip for the holiday season, is this weird if I just give it to him?

Is it fine to decline a virtual holiday party that goes from 5:30 - 7:00 PM? I like my team but I also don’t feel like staring at a screen for another 1.5 hours longer than I have to.

How do you all handle stress at work? I’m on a though project and feeling sort of hung out to figure it all myself. My stomach is in knots and I’m waking up in the middle of the night thinking about the case.
I have an interview with Deloitte Strategy & Analytics for a Senior Consultant role. What can I expect in the case? Is it a regular case? Or something new? The email I got is throwing me off. Help, thanks :)
Wild that conservatives think they're on the right side of history after supporting officials who let tens of thousands die needlessly and will now try to take away people's healthcare.

Are there any married couples working at two different big 4 firms? How did you make sure your finances were compliant with both?
I’m a 2nd year and effectively just ran a deal on my own with the partner. It ran smoothly, I got praise from the partner, and the partner said that they trust me to do most stuff without their sign off (so no need to check with them in future unless I’m really unsure). Generally there is one or two mid levels above me, and I find it way harder to do my job when they are managing me. They like to keep me on the bench, get me to do minor tasks and don’t let me take responsibility and ownership.
Potentially have an offer from a local tech startup. I’m 24, currently make ~$95K base and ~$50K, with an additional ~$20K in profit sharing (so total comp around $160-170K). Offer would likely (cont)
Had a final round interview with B4 consulting on Monday and spoke with a partner for 10 min. When is it okay to follow up with them about a final decision? Currently staffed and they wanted me to start in March. So wanted to give my team maximum time to backfill my position.
I made limited EQ partner in 2019 . This week I was told I’m getting moved to counsel effective Jan 1. My hours were negatively impacted in 2019 by an ill parent (only child) and in 2020 multiple clients said pencils down for half the year (& additional family illness & a death), + kids. I know nothing about the counsel role. What terms/arrangements have people negotiated? I don’t know what negotiation ability I’ll have, but wanted to be better informed.

Hi all, would love to get your opinion on an estimated market rate for a employee like me, as I’m thinking about asking for a raise in January but haven’t done this before. 1 YOE TS/SCI Full-Scope Clearance 1/2 thru Masters program (Analytics Georgia Tech) Been lead data scientist on team for 5+ months 2 AWS and Tableau cert (sorry had to throw that in there lol) I know this is a tough task without all the context but I’m currently making $95k and that seems to be the lowest on my team.
