Nanny question - we provide 2 weeks PTO and 5 days sick time per year. If the nanny doesn’t take PTO or sick time, do you pay this as extra? Or do we request that she must use it? Just realized we did not have this specified...
Soo how are we feeling about first generation Africans being the star panelists for several of these corporate Juneteenth panels? Before anyone starts accusing me of wanting to drive division, it just strikes me as being as an inappropriate as asking me, an African-American descendant of slaves to star on a panel about life in Africa just because I’ve visited a couple times (which I have). So, I’m seriously trying to make sense of it
Has anyone ever quit to just take some time off? I’m financially stable and thinking seriously about doing it. I feel like my current gig is killing me and I can’t escape.
A friend of mine has a wedding scheduled on Sunday evening in the west coast (we are in the east coast) and my husband is saying he can’t go because he has work on Monday (not remote). He is a doctor and is saying his schedule has 0 flexibility for change. Does anyone have any insight on how credible what he’s saying is? I’m just so frustrated that he isnt even trying to change his schedule - how can something be absolutely fixed?! Do doctors just miss all life events/friend’s weddings?!

Thoughts on giving notice while on vacation?
How do others recover when they’re 100% burnt out in the moment? Of course, we can plan to take time off with 2+ weeks notice to the appropriate teams we work with, but what do you do when you’ve had enough *right now* and need to pull through until you can schedule a day off?
🎄How do you plan to recharge over the holiday? Are you taking time off? Do you plan to reset or rest at all before the New Year? Drop your plans or ideas below! 👇
How does a person know if they actually have it good job wise currently? I always feel like I have it so bad due to not having staff, not being able to use vacation in the winter, the stress, the drama, etc, but I never leave because I think I’m just being a baby.
Is it rude to tell my best friend I want my own hotel room with my fiance when we attend a best friend couples destination wedding? The price is cheaper with more people in a room. She’s the only single one left out of the bunch.. feel bad.. but I value vacation time with my future hubs since were always so busy.
Is there a limit on how much pto you can take at once before it's considered a leave of absence?
Ever wonder if someone is throwing you under the bus? Basically, I’m on PTO, and my colleague sent a document over to execs in my absence. Since we are on the same team, usually we use words like “we, our, us” as in here is our draft of xyz. Well, today, my colleague said, I’m sending this over on “————‘s (my first name) behalf. I’m wondering if they’re throwing me under the bus (email was sent to c suite execs) or if they want me to get recognition since I was spearheading the doc. Thoughts?
Thinking about buying matching Patagonia jackets for my parents this holiday season. Anyone have recommendations for jackets or parkas? Looking to spend under $300 each. Thanks ❤️
I need a little tax guidance. I left a job in Dec 2019 and they had to pay me back some unused PTO. My bank statement says they made me that payment on Dec 30, 2019. But my 2019 W-2 does not include this amount, and Payroll claims this $ got processed on Jan 2, 2020. I have a couple more weeks of extension to file my 2019 taxes and they haven’t responded about amending the W2. What do I do?
Been interviewing for months and finally found an opportunity I want to take. How can I minimize the backlash leaving especially during the holiday season?
What is your firms PTO policy?
There’s nothing wrong with my job I just don’t want to work or live this life any longer? My favorite money is Last Holiday where she blows her life savings over two weeks bc she thinks she has a terminal illness and I’d love to go out like that.
Beyond 2 lines the text in each post card is cut off. I wonder how many lines in the comment section?

Hey guys so I'm a consultant y2 at D and really wanted to get a Ferragamo belt (worth $400) but my GF feels I'm too young in my career to wear such brands at work and it will look snobbish. Thoughts?
Friend trying to decide between Wells Fargo credit risk and EY credit risk? Any pointers? Unsure about the trade-off between travel and exit options? What are some typical exit ops for EY credit risk?
Without saying your age, what is something you remember from your childhood that a younger person would not understand?
No weird flexes. What’s your emergency savings (no stocks pls) and how many months is it designed to cover? Bonus: what’s your current salary.
CNN and other outlets really screwed up the reporting of this dress code story with united. It's ridiculous.
Has anyone made a move between Deloitte Consulting and EY Advisory in the HC/people area and have useful experience to share about the pros/cons?
How quickly does PwC consulting extend an offer from the time the last interview completes?
Worst consulting joke I've heard. Walking in the airport when someone drops their carry on and it opens and spills. My colleague looks at me and says "He must have an upset Tumi."
I’m a new joiner and came to ACN as part of an acquisition. I’m working in a business group that I don’t find particularly enjoyable or exciting. My grandfathered salary is also substantially lower than what new referrals are being offered. Can and how do I make a move laterally outside of this business unit? How long do I have to wait? How much time should I wait before contacting HR about the salary renegotiation, if at all?
What’s a good way to ask what role this is for without coming off like a fool? Or am I overthinking it? Was sent an email by an individual at Microsoft to ask to do an interview on their team. The email specified the overall products/team I’d be supporting but nothing anywhere about the role. I’ve applied to three roles with Microsoft and none of them in the application portal give any inclination if they are aligned to the person who reached out asking to interview me.
