One hell of a productive ‘vacation day’! Spent catching up on all the training requirements and pending client work! #YayPwC!
Any advice on how to go on vacation (beach) with two kids (1 and 3)? My husband and I like adventure and I can't imagine leaving kids with relatives.. do you hire a caretaker for when we want to do more adventurous things during the day?

PwC peeps: I have over 135% utilization. Has anybody used G&A code instead of the vacation code? Since I don't see that I'll be on the bench anytime soon and that 30% has to go somewhere. Tips, ideas?
How many unused vacation days did ya’ll throw away in 2017? Most of the M’s/SM’s/PPMD’s I know have saved the max and take less than two weeks each year. Wondering if this is common across the D.
What do you all do once you hit hours and want to coast (or just not work at all) for the rest of the year? I recently took vacation so feel weird taking another back to back, and my existing matters are still busy. Should I just do it? Could probably take 3 weeks completely off and still hit hours.
I learned the other day that Deloitte counts PTO against your chargeability. Is this common with most firms? (ACN doesn't count PTO in chargeability calculations.)

Left a job in government (prosecution), currently at a mid-size firm. I’m really starting to not only hate law firm life, but the practice of law generally. Is this part of the transition? I left my last job because I was on-call 24/7. Now I’m 24/7 again but due to billable requirements. I have no hobbies, no free time, and only spend about an hour/day with my kids. Not sure I want this life. At least I had insane PTO for govt work.
How is Deloitte with PTO? If I need to take a Thursday/Friday off- do they let me fly back on a Wednesday instead?

Lots of post about kids so I’ll offer one that’s been on my mind. Why more than one kid? I grew up with a sibling. She is my best best friend but as I’ve gotten older realized we were more of the exception. Lucky that we are same gender (which I do think impacts closeness), that we are close in age, and just clicked like bffs. Have since met so many sibs with non existent and toxic relationships. More kids = more expense. After passing on genes and getting love of a child, why have more than one

We shouldn’t go back to the classroom this Fall. I got positive for COVID from just hugging my sister who was asymptotic. This is Day 5 after I started showing symptoms. The first two days were hell. The hardest thing about this virus is how it affects your mental state.
Been getting approached by multiple recruiters for boutique consulting firms, and salary expectations never seem to align (mine are too high). I’m an experienced A in S& up for promotion fairly soon, which is why I benchmarked my salary expectation to SA level (140k base - even gave a slight discount there). More details: I’m happy where I am, with no great desire to move. Should I generally be setting lower expectations? What would your considerations be?
