Word of warning, check your employee handbook about unused PTO. Apparently in New York State, even with labor laws protecting unpaid PTO, if it’s written in any employee handbook or material that unused PTO is waived when you quit, that‘s all the employer has to do to get out of paying you.
Just remember that, at the base of it, every Jewish holiday makes it a mitzvah to get drunk
I am highly offended by these “Halloween Houses”. Stop trying to mix holidays! Once they merge they can no longer be unmerged and then what? We have one super holiday once a year?! Unbelievable.
Love those nacelles on the GEnx engines. Also, flying for PTO automatically makes it more enjoyable
When this is over, imma need a 3 day holiday to catch up on happy hours, house parties, and hang overs
Co-worker just messaged me on Slack - it's her first year with us - CW: "Hey, how does holiday time work? Christmas is a saturday. Do we get the week off?"
Is it possible to pass REG in a month of studying? I am going to take vacation about 2 weeks before the exam as well.
Have taken an unpaid leave to spend time/vacation with family in my home country. It’s caused an issue with my manager which is making me anxious and depressed. How can I compartmentalize my anxiety and be present with family for the next few weeks before going back to the office?
Guys wanna plan some nice vacation during Christmas. Preferably on east coast and trying to avoid flights if possible. Me and my wife and some couple friends might join. Any suggestions? Have you guys started traveling for leisure? What are some fund safe things ya’ll have been doing? Really need to get out of this routine! TIA
Can someone please post the EY GDS holiday list for Gurgaon/Noida offices in November and December? TIA
Hi everyone! I recently accepted a new job with a Big 4 and am also newly engaged. I have a couple of concerns… the main one being that I may not have enough time off for 2022 to cover taking off for the wedding, honeymoon, and then a couple of other weddings where I’m supposed to be a bridesmaid. Do you think there would be any wiggle room with managers allowing time off, or is it generally pretty strict? (Continued in comments)
AA staff denied my boarding through One World Ruby (even though I showed her my Privilege Club card) very unprofessionally because it doesn't show on my boarding pass. Gotta love holiday travels.
Did Netflix set the House of Cards release for tomorrow to prevent us from binge watching over the holiday weekend?
I’ve always been a social person and enjoy the team environment. However, as I move up in the firm and over the past few months, I’ve become very anxious for both internal and external meetings/calls and work in general. I’ve been working long hours since August and will continue to do so until April. The holiday breaks are making me anxious, as I’m expecting to be asked to work and not be able to disconnect. Not looking for sympathy, just some late night PA thoughts.
Were you ever asked to burn your PTO and work just because your chargeability was not priced to win the work??? Happy Holidays yeh..!!
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
What does M&A consulting at big 4 look like, especially at the entry level? All my previous experience is in audit/tax and I know nothing about consulting, just wanted to try something new. I liked my finance courses in undergrad, but not sure how relevant that is. Would I have ANY transferable skills from my accounting background? Can you explain what the work is like for a new hire? Especially if you've made a similar switch?
40 years in Big 4 - worked for 5 of the old Big 8 in three different parts of the country. Glad to answer any questions. Fire away.
Anybody know base + commission/target salary for an account executive at Netsuite? I am expecting an offer tomorrow. 5 YOE. TIA!

MBB folks: when you refer a candidate what do you look for? I feel that I have a strong background and I just need to land on that interview to win
Got a 4 in my first year but not on a PIP. My current project is going very well. Is there any chance for me to get promoted next year ?
Client asks us to design a poster for an IMAX movie that features how blockbuster movies are made. One of the key features in the movie is King Kong so we featured it prominently on the poster as well. Client asks seriously whether we need to be concerned about offending an African American audience. I shit you not! Arguably my most jaw dropping moment in this business.
Show of hands; who has been laid off because your agency lost a big client? Also, when you interviewed for your next job did you feel comfortable saying that? And do other agencies understand?
Hi fishes, How many of you have an MBA in HR. And how important an MBA in HR is to excel in the field of HR. Because I'm pretty mba in Marketing isn't that important to get you a Marketing job.
