I’m on PTO doing some final studying for my GMAT in 2 days but my PPMD is pinging me to help on something. I told him about this PTO well in advance (several months ago), but I don’t want to disclose that I’m taking the GMAT to him which is why I will not be doing work. What should I do?
That moment when you had all your projects out the door, ready to pack for your vacation and chill, but your client comes back with "urgent" changes. #fml #almostthere
Has anyone tried Glamsquad in NYC? Debating buying their 3 blowout package for holiday party season!
Every time I walk past Spirit gates, I get really good vibes. People waiting at those gates might not be frequent fliers, but they look so happy. Thats what vacation does to people i guess
Hello! I just received an offer from Deloitte USDC coming on as a Investigations Senior Consultant @ $110k, $5k signing bonus, 100% remote position (requested) Can Someone explain what benefits are afforded to me? Is the 401k match the same? Recruiter stated 3 weeks and 3 days of PTO…does that mean 18 days or 24 days? Also, can someone clarify the parental leave policy as compared to core? Can these be negotiated? I’ve been a 10 year Special Agent/Federal Agent and Officer with the military. Tx!
43/F traveling solo to Monterey, CA this Friday for a weekend conference. This will be my first vacation in 6 years. I've been to Cannery Row and the aquarium but that's about it. Any recommendations for good restaurants/things to do?
My fiancé’s family has a vacation planned at the end of June in Florida (small beach town about 45 mins from PCB). We’d be flying from California if we decide to attend. His family doesn’t seem concerned (ugh whole other story) and the “rules” in Florida are relatively relaxed now (restaurants open etc). I want to go for sanity reasons, but feel like it seems foolish too. What would y’all do? Just wait and see?

My T1 city holiday party doesn't include SOs. Most of my former firms have allowed them. It feels really cheap and also quite...impersonal. Was I just spoiled? What do your firms do?

Mandating health care for teachers...where will it stop? Once government starts mandating an area of our lives they rarely ever back off...they double down and mandate more...so again...where will it stop? Here is a for instance...if we look at days missed then pregnancy is certainly a huge factor...when will the State start mandating birth control for teachers or write contracts that births be scheduled during summer vacation time so as to not negatively impact the continuity in the classroom
How can I become more “okay” with being an average performer? I’m two years out of school and have been considered a high performer so far, but it’s taken a toll on my mental health and I feel anxious most days. I’ve realized that the cost of being a high performer outweighs the benefits, and am trying to loosen up and be more comfortable with coasting on occasion... I’m what people may consider an insecure overachiever. Has anybody here ever had the same feeling?
I never thought that I'd say this, but I want to see offices and cubes make a return to the workplace. Either that or 70-100% work from home. Only having the option of open workspaces is terrible.

Got to final round at McKinsey in January this year, didn't get an offer but got added to the Keep in Touch list, and the recruiter said I got good feedback but to wait a year before applying again. I started at Deloitte in October; if I decide to go for McKinsey again, is it weird to reach out again in January next year (having only worked for a few months at my current job), or should I go for it?
