Anybody else plan on taking a vacation or staycation during Election Day to get away from the negative energy, and keep your mental state better?
Took PTO to make it a four day weekend...first few hours back today and I already feel stressed out, anxious and like I want to quit. Burn out or just advertising?
To all the 🐠 who serve/d our country and their families - thank you for this holiday weekend. 🇺🇸
What would you do if you had 2 weeks of bench time or vacation right now? Go to India to meet family or roam around US by yourself
What’s your sweet spot for number/days of vacation per year while also striving toward FIRE?
What's the average cost you've spent on a vacation between the travel and stay over the past few years (cost per person) International or domestic?
I’ve been on PTO since yesterday but I keep checking my emails through my phone... what is wrong with me 😣
Feeling really demotivated lately... probably burnt out. I can't really use up vacation days in case family wants to go on a big trip next summer, so have to save up PTO (cont).
Had an offer for 30% more , a promotion to manager, extra week of vacation to switch firms. I love where I am at with my clients and there is a lot of potential there. Should I stay the course?
I have two incredible opportunities for week long trips in February, but I am nervous about taking a week of PTO, working for a week, and then another week of PTO. I have enough PTO. Thoughts?
Dumb question but if I’m taking PTO Friday-Monday, is my end time at 12AM on that Monday or Tuesday on outlook?
Did everyone take a day or two off to celebrate the holiday? Does anyone feel pressure to work on the holidays? It seems like major meetings get schedules with no thought about the high holidays
Random doubt on my head: How do firms even count PTOs? What stops people from telling their manager that they took a PTO and not adding it to their DTE/ Staffit, especially when on bench ?
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
Crispin has layoffs a couple of weeks ago. They announced it at a virtual town hall. The CEO did the usual “good people, hard to see them go” routine. Then he pivoted to the fact that he had safely made it to his Swedish vacation home and proceeded to walk around with his laptop and show it off to everyone.
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.
Hi 🐟🐠- when leaving ACN, is there any advantage to PTO payout vs. staying employed and taking PTO?
Got laid off but found a job. Unfortunately I can’t start for like 2 months. Any ideas on jobs I could do in the meantime? Can’t drive so no Uber. Willing to do minimum wage, anything will help
I FINALLY have a start date for IVF STIMs 11/5 and my company is requiring us to RTO on 11/1. I’ve expressed concerns and have asked to extend WFH for a period of time due to medical necessity (if I get sick, the cycle is cancelled and I’m out $$$$ and my sanity) but HR is asking me and my doctor to fill out forms that essentially say I’m unwilling to get the vaccine, which isn’t true. Does anyone have advice on how to handle? They’re saying this is the only form that’s applicable.
I have my next and final (7th) interview for a TM position with the VP of sales coming up. Any suggestions for this scenario and closing the deal?

One of my client is the greater Philadelphia area is looking to fill two roles: 1. Senior Manager Category Management, 8+ YoE 2. Procurement analyst 2-4 YoE.
I’m looking for advice. I’m with a company that will be going through an exit soon-ish. It’ll be big. I have a fair amount of equity and I’m fully vested. But I’m so burned out from the pace and the stress of getting us across this finish line. Has anyone left a job before getting through the transaction? I know there could be a bonus at the time of the transaction or benefits of staying after the transaction, but I am not doing my best work and I want to be motivated and inspired again. Cont’d:

Deloitte fish: what’s the policy for when business class seats are allowed for flights when traveling? International travel only? Does this kind of policy vary per project? E.g. McK consultants can buy biz class when their flight is 3.5 hours or greater. BGE is allowed when 1.5 hours or greater. What’s ours? Deloitte
