Fo you guys respond to emails on PTO? So far I've gotten my inbox blown up the first two days of my vacation with "urgent" emails and emergencies. starting to resent literally everything.
From your experience what do you think my older self would be telling me know while I’m in this situation fyi just under 30 no kids - should I either stay in my dead end job that owns decent money and good benefits, and wlb is good and I can do my fun activities but really not growing, learning or interested in it at all. Or try find another career path that I could be interested and can learn grow but may give up WLB?
What is Accenture's parental leave policy..
If I start a new job this month and contributed 17k to my Big4 401k this year, do I just tell the new 401k how much % to take from each pay check to hit 2500 from now till Jan? How will they be able to know if I accidentally go over?
I feel like a made a mistake turning down a job offer that had better benefits a bit more money.
Do you all check/reply your emails even when you take some time off/are off sick? I feel like I live in constant FOMO. Like something super important/urgent is going to happen even if I don’t have any trials or Ct deadlines coming up. If you do, how do you switch off?
8 weeks pregnant and had some spotting yesterday. Drs office is closed for the long weekend but I talked to the on-call nurse who said to call back if it gets heavier. Anyone else had this experience? Trying to stay calm but quite worried.

Just got a lateral offer, and know that conflicts/background check will take a little bit of time, and i’m hoping to take a week or two off in between jobs. My question is: would you take a vacation now or in the next few weeks before giving notice? Already losing motivation haha

Anyone here have step kids? Would appreciate any advice on how you went about splitting inheritance amongst biological and step children. My wife and I are drafting our wills, and between my own money and family’s money (from my father), we have quite a bit to pass down. I do not feel my step children are entitled to the same split as my biological children, but my wife feels differently. This is a very delicate situation and I want to ensure a fair outcome for all.
Called a friend yesterday to congratulate him about his wife’s pregnancy... his response: “All 3 of us are really happy about it... my wife, me, and the father...” 🤔

Would a previous undergrad internship at a firm help with my chances of securing a job offer? Previously interned with EY and didn’t know if that would help me lateral there. I did reject their offer in favor of Deloitte after graduating though, so not sure if that would leave a sour taste in their mouth (did it professionally and respectfully of course, no reneging or being rude).
Does anyone else absolutely hate talking to recruiters to turn down roles? I had two offers come in, had to turn one down. Spent 30 minutes with recruiter saying no thank you, then he put 30 minutes on my calendar with the hiring manager. Then a couple of people that I interviewed with texted and emailed me to see if I could talk. I’m trying to my gracious and thankful, but saying no just gives me so much anxiety because I’m a true conflict avoider

Hi ladies, Is the 6 month mark too early to ask for a raise? I have been required to over step my job role in almost every capacity. My bosses boss is contacting my personal phone on this weekend as the main point of contact for crisis comms on social media. I am also helping more senior social media members often. I have received 5 pieces of overwhelmingly positive written feedback from colleagues and these will be reviewed at the end of probation talk. I just don't know how to ask. 😔
Should I be concerned for my career with lack of billable projects? Background: Analyst hired out of undergrad in July 2020. I have worked on 3 proposals in the last 2 weeks, and 5 in the last 2 months. In the past year since I was hired, I have 8 months of billable work which is actually slightly higher than the other Analysts I joined with. Should I keep collecting paychecks and hoping for projects, or is this a serious issue that should prompt an exit strategy?
Hi Fishes A bit off topic but relevant. Did anyone hear abt TekFog & Persistent Systems Limited ? Did they develop it ? What's going on ? I wanted to apply (location preference) but am worried now if company is into these sort of unethical activities even more so if they don't even know about it. Does anyone has any insights into it beyond the company blog post claiming they are not involved. Also how is the work culture there, are these sort things even believable for such company ?
