Is having sex with four girls on vacation while being in a relationship of 4 years considered cheating? I don't think it counts.
The Great Resignation. What are you thoughts? Do you feel more comfort in resigning/taking time off before searching for the next role? Do you think industries will become more employee-centric?
How do u bill for ruined vacation due to client work. I was called all the way out of the country because folks waited until the last minute and I ended up working remotely.
have any of you taken maternity leave/any type of leave except for PTO, before baby was due? If so, how much in advance ?
Going to a wedding in Sharm el-Sheikh in May. I'm limited on vacation days but was thinking of doing Cairo for a couple days beforehand. Good idea? Any better suggestions?
Any folk who love their debt finance practice? I’m at a V50. I like my firm culture (mostly) but don’t like the fact that I have to find cover each time I take a vacation. Is that common practice? Also, any partner can staff you so I’m not sure how it works cause we keep submitting capacity to the assigning partners but staffing seldom seems fair.
Which firms other than EY give you a 4 days off holiday weekend for Labor Day and Memorial Day?
Don’t allow that inner voice to torment you if you are not having the “traditional” holiday experience. There is still beauty in this day and in your existence! Make it what you want!
First year associate in nyc big law. What do we give our secretaries as holiday gifts? Wine? Cash?

Deloitte folks who recently resigned.
How much time does it take to receive the final settlement amount (incl. unused PTO payout, last week salary, any claw backs)
Let’s keep in mind I’m in industry. I am fairly certain even though I warned my boss , had someone cover for me ect I think the boss is pissed off I went on vacation this weekend took a long weekend. How do I handle this , come back from it ect? Or is this a sign I need to leave the company
When is the best time to notify a company during the interview process of an extended vacation where plane tickets have already been bought due to PTO being approved by previous company? (7 days off)
Getting Married next March in Mexico, I work for a company I am no longer happy to work for. Should I stay working for a company that I am not happy at because I need to use PTO? Or should I start applying and let future employers I need time off?
If you are on the bench and have a scheduled vacation day coming up, would you charge G&A or the vacation code?
Got an offer for the same total comp, but MAYBE less stressful than my current job (fewer deadlines but similar hours due to larger deal size/more complex and less volume; vacation time to be respected) with maybe less upside potential. Been at my current job for a year, it’s bearable but I am not happy (previous jobs were mostly neutral). When the (new company) HR said what I’m feeling is called being burnt out I almost cried. Understand it’s personal choice, which would you choose?
What would the better exit opportunity be between these two companies (Deloitte and Amazon)? Deloitte (CBO) I would get more exposure to technologies and hope I'll get a non-crappy project or Amazon which puts me in a smaller niche but I would get more development experience? I have consulting experience in the past with a vendor.. WLB seems the same.. PTO is better at Deloitte.
Amazon TC - 240K (NDE)
Deloitte TC - 200K (170 + 17%) (SS)
Any agency producers getting requests to find “podcast solutions or vendors”? Are there any out there? What are people looking to for help? It’s such an odd thing to budget. I could simply show up with a zoom recorder, we could spend money to build a suite, or we can go to a place. This is for more the technical side. But curious if others are getting this kind of request.

What is the reputation of West Monroe Partners M&A practice? How does their deal flow compare to larger/less ‘boutique’ firms? What are their strongest industries/markets?
Is DDB responsible for the "I don't need to smoke because I have JUUL" ads? That's some kind of evil right there.
Does anybody have experience with case interviews at Slalom Consulting for OE? I’m having one for their change management practice and I want to know if there are any tips or tricks to ace that
This is how CAs from NIRC do protest against the arrest of 2 CAs in Gurgaon.
I honestly find this particular 'clownish' dance funny. They can do better 🤦♂️
Then they are like CA ko aisw bolte hai waise bolte hai. Who will take this protest seriously 😒
Has anyone stayed at the resort communities in Orlando. Reunion, Windsor at west gate, champions gate, solterra, etc. Which is the one I want? I’m traveling with 2 other families so we would need a 6-8 bed.

As a super liberal, I find the rising hatred of people who identify with a religion (by other liberals) concerning. I get not being religious but don’t bash good people who are! Especially since most of the world and marginalized groups you claim to support are religious
