Aight holiday gifts/tips for staff (mainly my PA) - I had heard as junior that it’s $100 per class year, so for example if ur a 3rd year it’s $300 to your PA. Is that the norm for your firm too, and same rule all the way up to senior year (so 6th year is $600…?) I love my PA but this year with WFH I really did not give her any work, but also we all get paid more what with covid bonuses so it seems extra grinch to not pay out. What’s your plan?
Whats the best holiday gift you have gotten from the company you work for? And Whats the worst? lol
If somebody were to put in their 2 week notice prior to the Holiday shutdown, would you get paid for the holidays or would they terminate your employment once you log off for break?
Anyone else putting their two weeks before the Holiday Big 4 Break? Currently in busy season and worried how mad they will be. Going to a compeititor so not sure how long they will let me stay. Anyone have experience doing this?
Good morning, Salesforce! I know this is a pretty general ask but could anyone who works in Finance at Salesforce shed some light on work life balance in the org? How often do you find yourself working on the weekends? Do you actually get to use your vacation?

Any other single people do a photo Christmas/Holiday card with their dog? Or am I the only one? 🤷🏼♀️
Going from audit to advisory to a competitive firm after 1 year of audit. However, start date is not until Jan 10 at new firm. When do I put in my 2 weeks given the holiday break and busy season beginning? Note: I’m not looking for a “take three weeks off as a mental break” type solution. My wife is still in grad school, so I’m the only earner and we will have lots of loans soon. so even missing 2-3 weeks of pay is missing out on a big opportunity of loan pay down.
First time in a really long time that there's no line for TSA PreCheck. Guess the other road warriors are on vacation.
What do people typically wear to holiday parties? This is my first one since I began working so just want an idea. Thanks!
Looking to do an international trip next year with my girlfriend. Both around 26 yrs old. We’re kind of all over the map, from Croatia to Peru for spots to pick. Any suggestions? We don’t need a hostel type budget, but want to be frugal. Probably wouldn’t do a pure beach vacation, looking for some cultural experiences as well
Job A or B? A = 135k normal hours 50ish a week. 15 days PTO. Better room for growth / advancement. B = 115k 30-35 a week - unlimited PTO. Only person in my department, less growth.

So I’ve finally booked a good amount of PTO and got it approved. I’m stressing about taking the PTO. Is this what peak burnout/consulting feels like?
Has anyone else ever thought of moving overseas? Just came back from vacation, so I'm not sure if it's me dreading work or if I really like the country.
5:30am flight, chose window seat so I could keep the window closed and sleep. 2 teenagers traveling for vacation leaned over me while I’m sleeping to open the window TWICE before 7am. Happy Monday
What does everyone think is an appropriate amount of PTO (we have an open pto policy) to take for my honeymoon next year?
Is this an acceptable out-of-office reply? “Thank you for your email. I am currently “in the office” (WFH, not PTO), but I am urgently occupied in observance of CyberMonday. I will respond to your email as soon as I close these deals. If you need urgent assistance, please contact one of my more responsible colleagues, or a competing firm. Thank you for your patience and understanding.”

Parents will be visiting me from out of town for a week. I have a 750 sq foot 1 bedroom so will be sleeping on the couch. Would it be rude if I just got them a hotel or airbnb for half the week? I love them but know that I will go bat ish crazy having to work and balance being crammed in an apartment with them. For context I’m first generation so the responsibility falls on me to entertain, plan their activities and drive them around.
As social distancing continues and busy season approaches us, anyone interested in doing a virtual accountability group? I’ll have a excel google doc we share minutes exercised, record productivity, health eating ect then every other week we do a virtual happy hour 🍻?
Consulting was never my end game, always planned to exit after manager at some point for a program manager/strategy role in industry. I am currently a year 2 consultant who would be up for manager next year and could be making around 150k. I have an offer to exit to industry for 140k (10k higher than current salary), trying to decide if it’s better to leave now or hold out for the manager tittle. (Base compensation)
I have just completed my first of 12 CIMA exams and I can’t seem to motivate myself to study at the expense of my side hustle when I don’t see myself in Consulting long term. I know I will gain some valuable lessons from CIMA for future ventures but it is a 3 year qualification alongside a demanding job with minimal downtime. Should I try and qualify or focus on saving money and my side hustles? Also, do I need to qualify to work as a consultant in Big 4 or can I opt not to sit exams?

Need advice—I feel comfortable, but stagnant. I’ve been at my agency for three years and barely made any work for my portfolio, and haven’t been to a single production. However, I love my team, manager, and agency culture, and know that’s hard to come by… what would you do?
For those of you that left big 4 accounting to do MBA, did you leave at Senior level (3-4 YOE) or at the Manager level (5 YOE). I would assume to leave at manager level would be more ideal as when you come back to the workforce you should at the very least be ready to come in at manager or above at your next job? Thoughts?
