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
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.
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?
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?
On vacation but really spending 12 hours a day working on bschool apps. It's worth it but I'm bummed I can't enjoy the break with family. Anyone else with me?
Can any of the MDPs / Partners on this bowl ensure that Jaime and the rest of the MDPs join this bowl?? To ensure that the leadership can listen to any concerns being raised here. This is like an office level PTO
Is it common for agencies/companies to require you to start at their base vacation days even if you have more at your current job? What’s been your experience negotiating more vacation?
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.
Do people manage to use vacation homes with school age children, or just rent them out most of the year?
We spend our careers trying to get people to go places in their minds. Do a good one for yourself today: go find the sun lotion you used on your last vacation...(continued)
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...
Would a company allow you to sign an offer and take PTO your second week (full week planned already) or would they prefer you start after the planned holiday and potentially not sign until then / risk getting other offers?
I’ve been on PTO since yesterday but I keep checking my emails through my phone... what is wrong with me 😣
Got an offer for a job that will start in February of 2022. I’m planning on giving my 2 weeks soon and taking a 2-3 month break before the next position starts to just relax and take some time off. I’m young now (mid 20s) and I don’t think I’ll get a chance to take several months off between jobs again after this. Will this gap in employment be a potential issue down the road? I may be thinking too much into this, but would like some advice. TIA
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?
For HR folks, what do companies do when you resign during the holiday shutdown period? Do they let you go immediately?
Resigning fish - what if you had spent more vacation days than pro-rated? Do you have to give back salaries accordingly?
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.
Any big companies offer same pto time as big four? I find myself at a smaller company struggling to get to even enjoy my pto as I’m always on

10 YOE (8 Corp finance / 2 consulting), M7 MBA. Don’t think consulting is for me long-term, but don’t have a clue wtf to do next. Any ideas?
Fairly new to the whole consulting game and really switched careers to consulting to specifically work at McKinsey (long story there but in short, admire the work they do). Got to last round interviews in 2019 but didn’t close:/ started a job at Accenture, fairly new here but just curious about tips on how to plan to reapply to McKinsey and if a shift like that would even be possible without an MBA?
Didn’t do well in my interview today. It’s definitely one of the hardest interviews I’ve had but i am just disappointed at myself. I don’t know if I have a way out of public. 😭
