I work at a boutique firm and they are re-evaluating their PTO policy. How many PTO days does your firm offer?
I haven’t worked with a therapist before but know I’m totally burnt out and need some time off from work. Has anyone successfully started a relationship with a therapist and gotten their support to do an LOA shortly after starting with them? I’m worried because I don’t have a long standing relationship with a therapist, they’ll be resistant to supporting this. Would appreciate any advice
I can’t stand people who are “taking time off” and are online doing work. Like, why?!? Have some boundaries for yourself. No one thinks you’re a hero for doing this.
Does your agency give a holiday bonus?
Is this where we talk about how to low key dance to your favorite song at the holiday party but not be THE dancing negro? Lifelong problem.
I miss reading for fun. I need a vacation. Does anyone else ever fantasize about Jerry Maguire-ing outta here?
Any US employees have a house in an EU country where you spend a portion of your time? Looking to buy a vacation home in Spain and spend bench time/weekends there. How do you make it work?
What percentage of your day are y’all productively working? Lately I’ve been super distracted on my phone, personal email, holiday plans, posting about all the above on fishbowl, and I’m trying to figure out if it’s just me.
What could your employer do to make you happy and want to stay? I go first 🙋🏽 more time off and leadership be an example by discouraging unrealistic overtime work
Ladies, what are you planning on wearing to the holiday party? I never know what to wear to 'festive' work events.
I feel so stuck in my life (28F). I just want to find my person and start building a life together. I feel like I have nothing to look forward to. I just want to create holiday memories with my new family and instead, I’m looking at another season with my dysfunctional as hell family. I know a negative attitude and comparing myself to others isn’t helping me, but I can’t seem to lift myself out of my funk…
PwC 🐟 my rewards summary page shows I have holiday balance of 8 hours. This means that I messed up and didn't charge holiday hours properly last year right? How can I best use this 8 hours now? Cont.
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.
Is it possible to designate your last day of employment over a holiday? Say Thanksgiving this year (11/26/2021) to take advantage of the holiday benefit and get that paycheck?
I just wanna talk about my PTO 😭😭
If you wouldn't voluntarily spend a Sunday afternoon doing it, it's not your passion. Was chatting with a developer today saying I didn't want them to stay late tonight working on this Jira ticket right before a holiday weekend and they responded "why? This is what I do for fun!" Regardless of what time they log off today, that is what passion for what you do looks like. 🥳
Is anyone aware of case law or a statute in Florida that prevents an employer from discriminating against an employee for having a medical marijuana card?
In my previous work experience I had a gap after getting laid off. I held various temp roles. How would include this on resume or LinkedIn?

Hi all! I’m an MBA Candidate with 3.5 years on H1B. What consulting firms are still hiring internationals among MBB and Big 4?
I want to do a online/ part-time graduate program while doing my full-time job. Would like to know what non-MBA programs are other folks pursuing, if any.
20 year road warrior here. My wife & I made it work through teamwork & commitment. My weekends were spent at home. Doing family things. I know a guy who (pre COVID) traveled every week, yet found time to do 200 mile weekend biking trips with his ‘crew’. Almost every weekend. His family vacations always seemed to include a 500 mile bike race or some other extreme event. He is now doing this in Europe (according to IG). How do spouses put up with that?
Anyone have a great CFP that works with folks remotely (I.e., via Skype or FaceTime) or in Boston? Looking to learn about the unknown, e.g., tax loss harvesting, 529s and other similar vehicles, etc
What’s your advertising ‘sliding doors’ moment that would have transformed your life? The guaranteed Grand Prix that didn’t happen for a small reason, or the not listening to your parents telling you to take the job in finance.
Hi Fishes I am looking for job change in the field of External Audit & Financial Services. My experience is with PwC as an Senior Audit Analyst for 2.9 years. Also a part qualified ACCA. Any opportunities/referrals will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Dear recruiters - put your comp range in the email if you want a response. The Salesforce market is just so competitive that I’m sure just like all of you, I get dozens of inquiries a week. It just feels like a waste of everyone’s time if I don’t know what it is. Now that I’m actively looking it’s just hard to see where to start!

Thoughts on weaning - my sweet baby is now 13.5 months and was down to nursing twice a day after she turned one. The last ~2 weeks she’s either been too distracted or too tired to nurse in the evening
I was told that severance would be 1 months pay for every year at the agency. Just found out when they did layoffs recently they only gave 1 week for every year. Is that negotiable?!
Can someone tell me about the work life balance of a HR Talent Senior Associate at PWC ? Is it true growth in this role?
