"Who was your plus-one to that previous company event? Bring them to the holiday party!" "Yeah I'd love to but we actually stopped seeing eac--" "Anyway can't wait to see them at the holiday party!"
How is everyone celebrating the holiday weekend?
What is your thought on disconnecting from work when on vacation? I see majority of colleagues take work computers on vacations and even logging on to answer emails for client. Im guilty of this!
Thoughts on vacations: is it unrealistic to be left alone while you’re on vacation, even if it’s planned well in advance? Starting to feel like time away is impossible & slowly creeping into burnout
Not so fun one: drank too much at the holiday party and feel like a total idiot. Nothing happened but still, lesson learned. Any advice on how to recover?
For those that are observing yom kippur, have an easy and meaningful fast. For those with Jewish people on your teams, don’t wish them a “happy Yom Kippur” or ask them to “enjoy the time”- it’s a solemn holiday. It’s also not the responsibility of the Jewish person on the team to teach you about the holiday - you have Google. And it’s really terrible to guilt them for signing off early/taking PTO to observe.
What happens if you overcharge holiday hours? I must have accidentally charged an extra holiday day and now have -8 hours showing.
I love the holiday pie 🥧
14 people on EY USA had been barred from coming to usa. Who knows, thet were out of country for vacation, maybe meeting an ill relative or even attending a funeral. But that's none of my business
Is there a studio in the dmv area where I can go get a holiday photo taken with my husband? We did a photo shoot in the summer and really don’t want a full fledged photo shoot right now. Just a couple of photos in a studio with some sort of Christmas/ holiday set up. They always show stuff like this in movies, wondering if it’s real lol
Pro tip: use your PTO to go all in on a personal hobby or side project for a week. It’s super refreshing, and you don’t have the stress of travel.
agile [ aj-uhl, -ahyl ] Creative department works through the summer while the account and strategy team goes on their annual summer vacation.
Does anyone else feel as though they ought to either (1) quit your job or (2) cry when senior folks in your department boast somehow (or complain) they’ve not taken a week+ long vacation in two years?
Looking to take some PTO in Quebec City. Restaurant, bnb, activity recommendations? Thanks!
How do you guys know when it’s time to take a vacation? Currently feeling burned out and wish I would’ve booked one sooner
Hi 🐠 moms! Currently on maternity leave, but considering extending to take additional time off as I've heard theres quite a bit of growth/development in the first 6 months. Thoughts/Opinions?
What are the best resources to prepare for product management interviews coming out of consulting?
While I understand the risk involved, am I right in saying that travel to India from the US is not banned and only requires a negative COVID test ? Anyone who travelled this week ? Indian passport holder and need to travel urgently.
Any book recommendations for soft skills at an agency/studio? For stuff like giving feedback, meetings, presentations, client interaction, etc.
Where do y’all see the future of M7 going? In the next 20-30 years. Will there still be an M7 or will MBAs be obsolete as more and more elite companies do direct promotion? Will HSW still exist or will the value prop of a brand name be diminished a ton with the continuous rise of tech/AI, etc?
I started as a life agent with insurance license and series 6. Looking at getting my 7 and 66 to become more of a true advisor and less of a salesperson. Could really use a seasoned mentor on (cont'd)
McKinsey has pretty traditionally been considered the best of MBB, followed by BCG, then Bain. Given all the scandals its dealt with this past few years do you think its standing within MBB will drop? I think its too big to fall out of the group but I definitely am leaning towards BCG being the new preferred/top option for people trying to break in to consulting.
Need to get the f out for my health and sanity. Small market issues finding something else.
What does a manager with 8-10 years in Big 4 consulting experience (5-6 years in FSI) make in the market today?
It seems like everyone is aiming to be financially independent and looking to retire early these days. Is that going to mess up the economy in a few years as most people retire earlier than ever? I want everyone else to live that YOLO life while I save up to FIRE in a few years, but it feels like everyone is saving up.
Are holidays (unlike vacation days) excluded from the denominator of the utilization formula?
Flying to Boston to beat the snow! First time on southwest in at least a decade. What a different experience from AA and the delt.
Any advice for someone looking to transition into a full HR Generalist role from Recruiting. I’m currently a Campus Recruiter with about 5 years of HR experience (Coordinator- Higher Ed). I received my PHR certification in September 2020 and sitting for my SHRM-CP in two weeks. I’m having a hard time transitioning into a full Generalist position.
Anyone from Guidehouse willing to connect about their healthcare work? Specifically health sector S & O or S & I? Trying to get an understanding of types of projects, culture, etc. Thanks!
Why is ACN strategy unnecessarily selective? They only recruit from a select few schools (no exceptions) even if at another top school. MBB/Deloitte/OW/Parthenon/LEK/ATK have much greater flexibility.
Does someone know if we can change jobs after the I140 is filed by current employer? Has anyone heard about Big 4 withdrawing I140 application if an employee leaves?
In the past year we switched to wearing jeans in the office and are now allowed to work remote from home when we don't have to be onsite. Just curious if this is standard practice now in the industry.
