Great exit opportunity to a national NGO to lead their transformation COE. $ marginally less than what I make now, but overall better WLB. 5 weeks vacation, 15 sick days, reduced summer hours & they're looking to see if they can give me the extra 30k to pay back my signing bonus (since I'm leaving Acn within the year). It sounds amazing and meaningful work! A tiny part of me has Stockholm syndrome and nervous leaving Acn...
Taking 2 weeks of PTO in September to study for FAR. Already failed once. What are good tips to maximize this time if I plan to sit by dec 10 when the window closes for the year?
I have put in my 2 weeks resignation at EY and I have this overwhelming sense of relief. The stress of busy season will be behind me. Doing CPEs on my vacation time is over. Not sitting at my computer at 10:00 in the night and on weekends. Looking forward to quality of life. Am I the only one that feels this way?
Disclosed my depression/anxiety to my boss this week. He was sympathetic and said it would never change his opinion of me. I believe him. We came up with a plan of what to do if I need time off due to my depression/how I should tell him. Not complaining, just showing you all that there are good bosses out there who don’t suck. :)
How is your company dealing with Covid.
(Please no arguing but I’m curious)
Our company is making Vaxxed people come into the office but non vaccinated are required to wfh.… I support choice of vaccination or not and this isn’t a post trying to lean to any side.
But I’m more confused as this feels like punishment for getting the vaccine while those who chose not too are allowed to wfh during the holiday season. Our company is required all vaccinated people to come in 3x a week but those who
I took PTO in early Mar and now taking PTO in late May, 1 week each. Am I being unreasonable? Assume there is someone that can handle the workload without me he just has to do 1.5x the work same as I do when he’s gone and the team is being told months in advance.
Husband ordered holiday cards and went with “Merry Christmas from the X Family.” Is it inappropriate to send something Xmas specific to colleagues? E.g., versus the neutral “happy holidays”
Looking at My People Link for my vacation/personal/and sick hours. With the new sick policy, are y'all using all 80 hrs regardless of situation? I feel like the mentality is "use it or lose it".
When is it either allowed or seen as OK to start using FTO? I recently started here and while I’m not looking to slack off and take time off, I just want to know how it works. (Plus, I don’t want to not use something that I can or should use.) Elementary stuff, I know. But I’ve freelanced my whole career until now. Thanks
I’m getting so much salt from managers on my team for taking PTO. They kept asking me the reason and laughed at the reason I gave. Totally unacceptable. Also, I don’t have any more hours onthe project

US/Canada based fishbowlers, I'd love some insight. How do you feel about the fact that most jobs only give 10ish vacation days off a year and no state-paid parental leave? I'm based in Europe and as part of my Masters, I'm currently studying the concepts of work/life balance and the ideal worker norm (the covert norm that employers expect you to adhere to e.g. Work is top priority, devoted to work, always available, never lets other commitments get in the way of work, goes above and beyond...
I know y’all are on vacation this week, but is anyone from PwC Workforce Transformation willing to chat re a potential referral? Thanks! PwC

Hoping it passes but how do I get in touch with American Airlines to potentially change my flight in the case that he is actually sick? Flight is tomorrow but current ETA for a call back is Weds. They should be able to issue credits or change the flight days after we no-show?
Also I’m guessing the airline will not allow us to get on the plane given these symptoms even if he wears a mask?
