Teachers leaving school on Friday’s and holiday breaks 😂😂😂 https://www.instagram.com/p/CTxwMgdDEzN/?utm_medium=share_sheet
How did you all handle like a family matter or traumatic event that happened while super busy at work? I’m finding myself being very unmotivated and unable to focus, but feel like I can’t take time off.
Project leadership is telling teams that they need to fly in the week of thanksgiving and possible Christmas as well. The assumption is that we fly home the day prior to the actual holiday. 😂
Has My People Link been updated for vacation days with the transition to Mercury? Also, if you’re carrying over vacation from the prior year, when do you have to use it by?
Anyone successfully negotiate their vacation time? I have never had more than 3 weeks off and well past 10 YOE...
Are holidays (unlike vacation days) excluded from the denominator of the utilization formula?
Wondering if any of you typically get a holiday gift for the Exec you support, and if you do, what do you typically gift them?
Hey could use some honest opinions on this because I’m still in shock. I was preparing to give in my resignation + 2 weeks from EY on Monday to jump ship to Deloitte. I accepted the offer from Deloitte on Friday, and I just got hit with a bomb today that my brother has cancer and we have no idea what stage it’s at. Should I just rescind my acceptance from Deloitte? I don’t know how it would be taken if I start at a new firm and immediately need substantial flexibility and time off.
Have taken an unpaid leave to spend time/vacation with family in my home country. It’s caused an issue with my manager which is making me anxious and depressed. How can I compartmentalize my anxiety and be present with family for the next few weeks before going back to the office?
Asalamualaikum everyone, hope everyone had a great thanksgiving holiday and some Black Friday shopping with family and friends? This is my first time in this bowl and I’m liking what I see so far.
When is the new manager milestone week? I guess December right? Will plan my vacation around it.
First time on bench since I joined last year. Feels weird to have pretty much nothing to do but really needed the time off. Should I try to find a project right away or wait for one more week? ⛱
I will never understand grown ups that don’t have children that still choose to vacation at Disney
Accounting bowl, kpmg just announced we’re finally getting 2 shutdowns, one at calendar YE and one around July 4th. They will do so by moving 5 PTO days into the holiday calendar. How would you feel?
Has anyone had deviated septum surgery (especially with both sides and not just one deviated side)? How long did it take to recover and to be able to get back to work? How did you handle the time off with the firm? TIA
I’m on vacation (only 3 days) - how do I stop looking at my email and thinking about all the work I’ll come back to?!
I'm hitting my personal lowest. I'm taking vacation next week to just "be at home" and don't answer emails. I am on local project but pretty burned out so really all I want to do is anything but work.
BCG 🐠, what’s the sector manager role like in your respective industries? In terms of percentage, how much is partner interaction vs case team?
I pity those who revel in the "accomplishment" of have 100+ YTD utilization. Y'all got suckered by the firm.

If I did an internship, should I remove it on LinkedIn to help recruiters? Because if recruiters just look at YOE, would they screen me out when looking at my dates being 1yr too long for my title?

Any pregnant people, have to have awkward conversations with friends about not hanging out? My bff is an amazing person and loves my 2 year old to death; but she’s also out a bars and living life as if it’s normal. She doesn’t know I’m pregnant yet, and is asking for moving help and sleepovers and stuff. Of course I want to help her any way I can, but am also slightly worried about being around her due to covid and being pregnant ..
Someone want to explain how everyone in consulting can be this duped... we accept promotions for more responsibilities without knowledge of compensation... that literally doesn’t happen anywhere else.
