First time having president’s day holiday in the company but still worked. I guess that’s the life of an accountant- No president’s day holiday.
My contract has 4 week notice for leaving the job, and the new job I’m about to accept would like me to start asap (and so would I). How shitty is it to do 4 week notice with 2 of those being vacation? Wouldn’t want to burn a bridge but 4 weeks, jeez.
EY - What is the maternity leave breakdown? 2 weeks prior to DD + X disability + 16 weeks parental leave + up to 3 weeks PTO? Is the usual 6-8 week disability/medical separate from the 16 week bonding leave?
Time for the annual vacation reminder. Carry-over vacation expires at the end of June. Please check if you have any and book some time off. Every year someone loses a week...
Dumb question but if I’m taking PTO Friday-Monday, is my end time at 12AM on that Monday or Tuesday on outlook?
Can someone from Deloitte help me to know exactly how many hours I must work in a year to achieve exactly 95 percent utilization? I'm trying to understand the difference between holidays vs. PTO hours
I did it! I just resigned without a solid backup plan. I will take some time off, chill, go on vacation, will get inspired again and am looking forward to new adventures and challenges.
To all the 🐠 who serve/d our country and their families - thank you for this holiday weekend. 🇺🇸
Plan to leave the firm within the next 6 months and use my PTO every other Friday because I can’t handle this work any longer—it has destroyed my mental health, along with the pandemic and all the shit going on in the world. I’m grateful to have a job but I can’t do this any more. I’m fully staffed on an engagement, but can I still request PTO every 2 weeks (just trying to use them up at this point)? Don’t care about promos, don’t care about this line of work and industry
Looking to take a family vacation out west in August and my mom really want to go to Big Sky. I really want to do Yellowstone, but I feel like it’s best to stay in the park for a couple of nights to really experience Yellowstone, rather than a day trip in from Big Sky. Thinking we should do a couple nights in Big Sky and a couple nights in Yellowstone. Planning to fly in and out of Bozeman. Any recommendations for Big Sky or Yellowstone? Anyone stayed in Yellowstone?

Hi 🐟🐠- when leaving ACN, is there any advantage to PTO payout vs. staying employed and taking PTO?
What’s the maximum PTO payout if I quit? I’ve got a ton of hours saved up. Like 8 weeks. Will I get all of it?
Any agencies giving people time off for the one-year anniversary of WFH? I heard WK is completely closed today.
Has anyone used Turo for car rentals for personal / vacation rentals, and if so any takeaways? Recommend or not recommend? Things to watch out for?
Anyone else feel like being “encouraged” to take time off when things are slow is a bit disingenuous from leaderships. When I really need time off is when I am working 60 hour weeks back to back for 3 months Karen, not now during a week I’m unassigned.
Coming off of my first real, full week of PTO in my 10+ year career (my fault... that was self- imposed) and WOW. I actually feel refreshed, comfortable with returning tomorrow and grateful that my firm and team did not once try to grab my attention for literally anything. Take your PTO, folks. I'm serious. It helps.
Anyone have any good educational materials for participants in a 401k that you provide education for? Thanks

Started a new job and trying to decide whether to rollover my 401k from my old firm at schwab to my new firm at fidelity or invest in a roth 401k. i've had a company 401k since I was 22 yo almost 15 years ago but the balance is embarrassingly low. Maybe i'll have better control in a roth? thoughts ?
Just wanted to point out that the "I have a micromanaging manager" post below didn't call out the manager's gender, the way that people do when they're complaining about their female managers.
Has anyone here made the move from agency life to tech? I have a job offer from a unicorn series G company for a senior design program manager role and need help understanding if the equity they’ve offered is fair. Would appreciate the help as I need to get back to them ASAP.
I really am thankful for how embracing my firms culture is to virtual meetings, but I’m looking forward to in person conversation again, grabbing coffee here and there, a team dinner or two, and a newfound respect for a blended wfh policy.
Ever interviewed for a job you don't intend to take even if offered? Should I go, even if my interest is more curiosity and I'm 99% sure they can't make an offer that would be more attractive to me than what I already have?
