Getting back from a two week 'vacation' exhausted and just as much in need of a break as I was before I left... FML
Been in Consulting for over 25 years. Looking for a change. Love stock and options trading. Have been doing system functional and integration testing and like it. Led teams of people (even clients and client contractors). I like to coach, mentor, and motivate. Getting tired of working 60+ hours a week , needing to do +1s and 0 to 2% increases for “great work” but still bring a positive attitude to the team. Just taking PTO and reevaluating next steps. Company/BU recommendations?
Going on a team vacation to the beach and I think I’m kind of into this one female coworker I work closely with. What should I do fam?
For the first two years at PwC do you get 10/month of vacation? Then starting your third year do you accrue 15/month?
Crispin has layoffs a couple of weeks ago. They announced it at a virtual town hall. The CEO did the usual “good people, hard to see them go” routine. Then he pivoted to the fact that he had safely made it to his Swedish vacation home and proceeded to walk around with his laptop and show it off to everyone.
What would you do if you had 2 weeks of bench time or vacation right now? Go to India to meet family or roam around US by yourself

Can any of the MDPs / Partners on this bowl ensure that Jaime and the rest of the MDPs join this bowl?? To ensure that the leadership can listen to any concerns being raised here. This is like an office level PTO
My clients asked me if I can work during my vacation in Mexico. They approved my vacation arrange three months ago. And they are asking me one day before I left? Seriously?!
I’ve been totally buried in work for the last 2.5ish months and it’s taken a toll on me. I’m feeling very burned out, to the point where my productivity has tapered off over the past two weeks and I’m no longer able to bill the hours I want. I genuinely try, but at a certain point each day (usually around 6.5 hours) I just feel like I can’t do it anymore. My family is urging me to take PTO to recharge, but I’m too scared about losing more hours to actually do it. Does anyone have any advice?
Spinoff question... I know FMLA technically only covers you if you've worked for 12 months at your employer but has anyone actually had their employer say "sorry you we only here for 10 months so you can take your two weeks of accrued vacation, after that we'll expect you back." ? Since FMLA is unpaid anyway, I would imagine most employers would at least let you have unpaid time off.
Did you wait for your background check to be completed before giving your notice? What about the final step of contacting the current employer? I have been emailing the team regularly to find out the status so I can give my notice and take some time off

Hi fiserv, How is bench policy in mphasis. I have heard that if you are more than one month on bench then they not give any salary till u assigned with any project. Is it true?
For those who exit to industry, do you find recruiters lowball? They often quote a salary based on YOE and their standard pay - often lower because their salary progression is slower. 4YOE at consulting you make $120k~$150k but they quote $100k because that’s how they pay their homegrown analysts. Nobody thus far thinks 4y at consulting is worth 5-6 YOE, I’ve even met someone who only match me to their 2-3 YOE analyst because they think their program is more prestigious and want to hold me back.

Where’s the best consultancy to work at for digital people? Who has a great culture and supports there people? Convince me why I should work at your company.
I recently got a verbal offer from KPMG strategy. Is that more prestigious than like, most other firms? Like, I know MBB is done with recruiting; I feel like below MBB for name recognition is the Big 4 and other firms aren’t as reputable. I’m trying to decide whether or not I should interview and apply to other firms or just take this one (assuming a written offer ever comes along). Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.
I’m supposed to roll off next week because my work stream is ending so I pinged an md and said I’m free for a new project in a week. Today, I’m reading the new sow and I find out that the project is keeping me on a few more weeks. Pretty messed up that I wasn’t told about this in person. Do I have to stay?
