My dad is in his 80s and just had a stroke. He is in the hospital getting better one day and worse the next. My job has been really understanding and are giving me time off, but I recently started there and don’t want to feel like I’m taking too much time off. Between my brother and I, we take turns going to the hospital, but he seems to be taking less responsibilities knowing that I am here to talk to doctors and be there for dad. I also have my own family and my husband is a little frustrated
How many days of vacation do you have left?
I’ve had a very interesting experience with my manager as a new hire out of college. I’m all for constructive criticism, but feel like this is really destructive criticism with no aims of helping. One month within being hired, she told me that because I was so slow on picking up things, that she will have to work through her vacation to get things done on time. She constantly rejects my spreadsheets for things such as my font being Times New Roman 12 instead of 10, cont..
People who left accenture in recent times, how much PTO does accenture pay out? Is it limited with the 240 or 200 hours cap? Or is all paid out in full?
Is there an ideal time of year to leave a job? I left my last job in May and it totally screwed up that summer because I couldn’t really take a whole bunch of PTO. Now I know I’m going to leave sometime this year and don’t want a repeat of last time, but not sure I can make it another 6 months.
Hi Rachel! Holiday question - How should I balance my personal “wants” vs. family obligations during the holidays? I am exhausted, want to stay home and rest, do my hobbies, while SO wants to fly to the Midwest to spend time with his large extended family. I would like to set expectations but am unsure how to approach the conversation.
Ladies, what are you planning on wearing to the holiday party? I never know what to wear to 'festive' work events.
Holiday party stories anyone? 🍿🍿🍿
Just got an industry offer for 15% bump - do you think it's fine to put my notice now effective Jan or will they let me go earlier to avoid holiday pay?
Considering breaking off from the mothership and being independent contractor. Only issue is I have a 1 week vacation in March with the fam I don't want to miss how does vacation work?
Would you think it’s rather rude to call it quits and resign from one’s job while on holiday?
We have an AMAZING nanny - we adore her and she is so great with our child. We are just using her for 6 months while we wait for our daughter to get into a nursery program. We didn’t talk about this up front - but, typically, what do you do in these situations for vacation/holidays? If she goes on vacation, do we still pay her for those days? If we go on vacation, do we still pay her for those days (supposing we give plenty of heads up)?
Best place to go for a solo vacation?
I put PTO on my schedule in July to go out of town for a concert & haven't purchased tickets yet. Should I be willing to cancel those plans to free up my time for an engagement that needs staffing?
I jst started with PwC ... How does charging G&A vs Vacation vs sick day affect your utilization? And what about this "paid time off"....Is that just vacation or is that another code we charge?
So sick and tired of my work. Not burnt out and just went on vacation but hate what I do. Still studying for my CPA but have to imagine there’s something better out there than accounting.
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.
If I'm forced to use my vacation, floater, etc. towards my study leave for CFE but I have vacation booked for right after CFE, will PwC still let me take that vacation as a "leave of absence"?
Question for the ladies: what is an appropriate dress for firm holiday parties? I'm naturally curvy so most dresses look like they come with an HR complaint on me. Lol help!

Is it weird that minutes after getting an offer from a Big 4, the office managing partner is inviting you out for coffee and top golf? I hadn’t even read the offer letter yet 🤣 Are audit seniors needed this badly?
What's the going rate for b4 managers these days with 7-8 yoe? Considering a boomerang but might be seen as green for a director role since I left b4 as an SA.

Dfw terminal c Precheck - get it together!
Expecting someone to operate at the senior associate level for a year and not paying them as a senior associate salary is the most toxic behavior of public accounting firms.
So, with the whole SCOTUS thing being done. I again ask the questions. Whats the value of keeping the union together? We have a radical fundamentalist minority who contributes little to nothing but get to make choices on behalf and against the wishes of the majority of the country. Whats the value for states like New York, Illinois, and California to remain in an union with states like Kentucky, Missisipi, and Missouri?
Anyone with experience with the GT public practice? Any insight? And senior associate salary? Would be in advisory. Know it’ll vary by market but just looking for input, Glassdoor seems low :(

Hey Londoners - Visiting from the US in November after a stopover in Paris. If I'm understanding correctly, I have to take a day 2 COVID test. Is it pretty easy to find a testing center? Have any of you been taking the Eurostar and dealing with this? Thanks!
Claim unemployment or try to find your hardest to find a job in the next month and omit the layoff? I want to rush but not settle. Definitely don't want to go back into consulting.
I work as a quant/associate at a large (>300 billion aum) long only mutual fund. Ive been here for about a year, but seeing how crazy the job market is, I’m wondering if I should put feelers out again. I like my coworkers and I work good hours. I get 110k as base, and got a 10k sign-on bonus. They said min bonus is 15k, but I’m not sure what the range is as I haven’t been around for a bonus cycle. This in a HCOL city. I also get 30% match in my retirement accounts. I have ~2 YOE. Thoughts?
Anyone in banking ever see a product management role that is for actual products (eg loan or credit card offerings) vs the typical tech focus (eg LOS or digital POS)? Looking at a role description at Ally that seems ambiguous.
I am actively looking for job change. I would be fit for the roles like- healthcare consultant, knowledge management, pre-sales analyst, business development, strategy planning. Please help with the same.
Hi Fishes, I got a call from a TCS manager last week and he interviewed me saying he received my CV from an external source. He shared his tcs email id, asked me to make minor modifications in the CV and then there will be a client interview. He said he will get back to me. I reached out to him 2 days later and he informed they were evaluating my eligibility with TCS. It has been 4 days since that and I have not heard from them. What does this actually mean? TIA.
just got put onto a project, but planned on putting in my two weeks by the end of the month. project expected to go past then. is it bad to put in your two weeks mid project?
Directors - I'm interviewing for a director role next week and re-reading the description realize it's possibly an individual contributor role, which would be disappointing. Do you have a team or are you the doer? Product management if that matters.
