Do holiday weekends like Labor Day make job posters / recruiters want to close on a job posting and make a decision beforehand or does that usually have no weight in decision timelines?
I see a very faint second line testing on the day of my period.. low key freaking out because in the last week on vacation I have dyed my hair with balayage, eaten sushi, drank a beer or cocktail with dinner every night and had two cups of coffee every morning. Obviously ceasing all of this but have I already caused damage?
I got my first full time job back in March 2019. It’s my dream job in terms of work, team + industry. (I work for a travel agency doing their social). The only downside is the PTO. (Cont)
Need some inspiration...fam keeps asking for my holiday gift list and I have very few ideas for myself (34M). Have a few crutches I can lean on from wardrobe/hobbies (golf etc.). Anyone have any go-to, can’t-live-without items they recommend? (Budget <$500 per item)
Does anyone else find it ridiculous that firms require a minimum daily time entry? For example, my firm requires us to bill 6 hours a day, whether or not it’s billable work, we have to have a minimum of 6.0 in our time entry system every day or we get flagged. If we’re on vacation we have to pre-bill 6.0 a day. Why the hell do firms do this???
I’m a mid level lit associate. Headed out on a vacation tomorrow and feeling guilty leaving my case team behind who are all drowning. I know vacations need to be respected, but is it ok to feel this way?
Any former Slalom 🐠 know whether unused PTO is paid out when you leave? I assume yes but don’t wanna ask and reveal myself as on the way out lol. Thx
Is it a good idea to tell my lead that I am about to have a mental breakdown? I am going through something personal, and this busy season hasn’t been easy for me. I requested pto, but basically was told that it is not appropriate to use pto in busy season. I am on the edge of quitting , but I think I should at least try to talk to someone before I give my notice. Any advice for this situation?
Is it possible to designate your last day of employment over a holiday? Say Thanksgiving this year (11/26/2021) to take advantage of the holiday benefit and get that paycheck?
Does anyone know how much of balanced vacation/PTOs gets paid when you leave Accenture in California ? Is it capped at 240 ? I have 350 hours or so. Thank you
How long after starting a new gig can you request PTO? Started this month but planning a trip in June.
I just wanna talk about my PTO 😭😭
Anyone ever feel awkward or bad letting folks know you’re out for a religious holiday? Yom Kippur is on Monday this year and there’s virtually no other Jews in my group, so it feels like an inconvenience to the rest of my team that I’ll be out on a random Monday.
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
What is the general opinion on increasing salary: is it easier to do from within or jumping to another firm?
I'm looking to exit to a start-up. The appeal of wearing many hats draws me in. How do I go about finding one? I'm looking for an Accounting/Finance Manager role.
Am I too old? Too old to chase a wild dream of living in a beach town? Too old to follow a hunch? Too old to sell everything and start over somewhere else? Some days I feel like I am. With parents in failing health and a grandpa that is lonely most of the time, I feel obligated to stay here. To keep living the life that “makes sense”. I’m 32 single, no kids, own my home, essentially have life by the tail. I live an hour from where I grew up. Feel like I don’t fit in with my friends anymore…
I have close to 9 years of experience with technology consulting across India and the US with Deloitte US( I was hired at the india offices of Deloitte US). I have been admitted to Ivey business school for 2023 batch. Post MBA, I want to make a move to management consulting as that was one of the biggest driving factor for me to purse an MBA. From my research I gathered that getting into MBB is extremely difficult due to very few openings. What can I do to boost my chances of getting into MBB?
just bc I saw some uneducated BCG consultant go off on affirmative action today ...affirmative action/diversity hiring doesnt tip the scale in favor of minorities, it balances the scale

Has anyone gone from Deloitte (or other Big4 firms) to Vista Cons Group? What’s the culture and work like? Background is in MC
Im a recent grad on a tech implementation project for a small firm. I’m finding it challenging because I’m expected to know how to solution a user problem based on the system that I really don’t know all the ins and outs of. I enjoy the req gathering/PMO activities, but thinking of data mapping and integrations is such a new way of thinking than a typical strategy-based case study. Do strategy ppl find these tech implementation difficult?
Temporarily traveled to SC. Matched with a guy on app and we’ve been talking for about a month. We are planning to meet up in DC where I live. He wants to go to a Dallas game but I’m not trying to pay $400 for a ticket (not into football). I also feel selfish for not wanting to spend that amount since he will have to buy a flight ticket and pay for a hotel. It sucks because I just want a dinner date but he’s putting in a lot of time and money to meet me. Should I just buy the ticket?
What is the base salary for experience associate 3 for PwC CMAAS in NYC? How about senior 1?
New to this NY freeze - so when does an agency just call it quits and have everyone work from home? Or is this wishful thinking?

Is one allowed to perform an audit under his own CPA license on the side while working for a CPA (Big 4) firm in the Audit service line. Is this policy discussed anywhere in EY’s policy?
Why does PwC Law take almost 2 years as compared to other companies such as Apple, Google, Amazon etc. take only 1-1.5 years for the whole I140 approval process. Does all Big 4 make you wait for long to get your I140?
Does MBB or IB banks ask for gmat/ GRE scores from 1st yr MBA students interviewing for internships? Or even full-time roles? I’ve heard a lot of conflicting information...
