Ever been so inundated with work and clients and rotating teams that you literally daydream about contracting a moderate to severe case of e. Coli so you can get some time off to apply to jobs? Orrrr
Trying to figure out if I dislike my job or if I’m just mad I had to come back from vacation😂
What’s the smarter option? Ask for another week of PTO in the contract or higher salary? 3 weeks vs 2 weeks.
@Accenture, What to do after switch to CDO? I was C&M and my PTO and benefits are going down now. My job will become more implementation b&tch work. I’m so mad but trying to channel my anger instead.
Just had a very uncomfortable conversation with a partner. I have some time off booked to go to my brother’s wedding (I’m the best man). We were chatting and I mentioned that my brother’s future husband is so nice and really a great guy, and we already consider him a member of our family. Partner’s tone immediately shifts and as we’re ending the call he says, “Okay, enjoy the time with your family at the civil ceremony.” Like… girl you live in California, you cannot be this backward.
Can I take 3 personal days before the Thanksgiving break? Does it count as regular vacation and not affect my Effective Util?
you guys my 1yr old dog keeps attacking people so we can’t take him out anymore, he’s unpredictable and we’ve had two vets experience this and tell us to put him down. he doesn’t attack us but we can’t never leave our house, never go on vacation again, never leave more than 4-5hrs at a time…. how big of a pos am i if i consider the advice??
For any of those that have a vacation rental how do you manage? I can’t seem to find a property manager but need to juggle cleaning schedules and check ins. Who checks on the condition of the house for damages or stolen if you are out of state?
I'm going to be fully vaccinated in a month and want to plan a Caribbean vacation for the Fall. Best islands to visit? Would love to do an all inclusive, but I have Marriott and Hilton points (and expiring status) I'd like to use.
Quick question: will I get another check for all of my PTO Balance? My got my last pay stub but there was no PTO balance on it. Thanks! Accenture
Throughout pretty much my entire career, I've never taken a true extended vacation. I'm about to take nearly 2.5 weeks off and actually be mostly away from work to focus on my wife and kids. To be honest, I actually have some anxiety about it. Any sage wisdom from others on disconnecting?
My local Safeway is already stocking Valentine's Day chocolates. What would they do without holiday candy to sell? Is this their main purpose? I wonder what they do in off season (if that exists)
Left consulting for tech a few months back. I now want to take 3 weeks vacation in May - June. Family wedding and then a friends wedding 10 days apart in Europe. Would like to attend both. How would you bring that up with manager on a reasonably new gig?
What would you guys do for vacation from Xmas to New Years? Rent an Airbnb in the Hamptons? Go to a skiing resort out of state? Something else? Trying to be safe
Should I be afraid or cautious if my work offers flexible vacation, but I would want to take a slightly longer than “typical” vacation period for a staff? I would come back to work for about another 2 months before I take a “week and a half” additional trip?
Does EY have a mandatory time off for all associates at the end of December ? I am sure D and PWC peeps used to go on week /2 week trips during this time ?
I feel guilty complaining because so many people have it so much worse, but I don’t like auditing, accounting, and working. I just really like the lifestyle those things afford me. ... Take your PTO, people. Some people live paycheck to paycheck, white collar workers live vacation to vacation. Unless you’re Steve Jobs, your career is barely a footnote in your obituary.
Am I crazy? I recently moved in with my girlfriend of 6 years. I am jewish - I go to temple and celebrate jewish holidays. Technically, she is half jewish half christian. She does not go to temple or church and basically only celebrates Christmas. Continued…

Not crashing anymore.

That moment when you think I turned down academia so I wouldn't have to spend my life writing proposals.
Recently, I applied for a consultant position. The initial interview (this was a technical interview). Cleared this interview and went for two more interviews, mostly focused on consulting skills, behavioral questions, fit etc. I really thought the interviews went well. However, I received the feedback that they are not moving ahead with me. Since I really thought the interviews went well, I needed to know what exactly went wrong. So I sent the recruiter an email thanking .. cont'd..
