Two parter, maybe three. First year partner looking to move out of Illinois.
1. What to partners typically spend on their house (wife doesn't work)? Something in the 1-2mm range seems reasonable, but maybe over the top also, curious to hear opinions
2. Considering moving to the Orlando area, we vacation there a lot with young kids. Interested to hear any POVs you may have
🎄How do you plan to recharge over the holiday? Are you taking time off? Do you plan to reset or rest at all before the New Year?

I work for a small (yet quickly scaling) tech startup that is fully remote regardless of Covid. Outside of healthcare and vacation, what benefits do others in similar companies have? Or even better, what do you expect? We are going to be hiring a lot of people while watching our dollars (limited investment dollars available) but need to make sure we are competitive. Do you have things like matching 401ks, office allowance, phone/internet stipend, etc.
How many vacation days do first year associates at PwC get? I know we accrue hours per month but don’t know how many it is
Any suggestions for a calm, quiet relaxing vacation last two weeks of December? Prefer warm over cold weather and can’t travel outside US
My colleagues and I had been notified that we would be required to work an extra weekend or after hours shift each month for the next four months. What our bosses forgot to tell us was that we would not be paid for this time. Administration is not taking pay cuts, only primary care doctors. First, we get no PPE; then, no PTO; now, no pay. I am grateful to have a job and this may not be justified, but I’m feeling bitter about this.
How’s your firm’s vacation policy/culture?
We technically get 15 days PTO, but I’ve been frustrated at (i) pressure not to take it ‘because we’re busy,’ (ii) folks glorifying not taking it - ‘I haven’t taken a day off since x!’, and (iii) pressure to do menial work (live deals obviously an exception) and join pointless checkin calls when away.
I'm in my last night of a beach vacation and I posted a nice selfie for the sunset and now I'm worried it seems tasteless in light of today's news.
Are happy posts allowed at the moment? I usually say no and refrain from posting but I dunno I just needed to feel myself for a min. I'm a very rare poster btw.
How much PTO do you typically take in a year? I've only been taking about 1.5-2 weeks and I'm starting to feel burnt out, but it doesn't seem like anyone on my team takes more!
I started last October as a junior (moved over after 3 years in B4 accounting). Have worked nearly every day since then except for the occasional Sunday when I decided to blow off work I probably should have been doing.
I desperately need a vacation, but have no clue what that even looks like with Covid, WFH, and Biglaw life in general. It also feels super hard to take a break because it seems like no one in my group ever does.
Not sure whether I'm posting to gripe or seeking advice...
Does anyone has any feedback what it's like to work at Fingerpaint? Wondering on culture, benefits, time off, atmosphere.
Thank you in advance
Has anyone considered or pursued short term disability/FMLA as an option for anxiety/depression? Especially right now with lingering covid stress and anxiety? I am feeling so burnt out and incapable of doing work. I want to take a leave of absence but am afraid of the impact it my have on my job. I really don’t want to get fired but I really, really need a break that is longer than a vacation. I also don’t have enough financial float to take a significant amount of unpaid time. Any other ideas?

Hi…question for CVS workers, how many days of pto a new employee usually gets? Thank you
Tell me if this is selfish or not. I adore my family, but since they're doing a very lowkey Christmas situation this year, I really would rather take a weeks vacation on my own. Obviously the holidays are about spending time with those you love, but I'm tired! And I see my entire family at least once a month for a group dinner. Am I a bad daughter/sister if I choose vacation this one time?
People in Canada, which travel credit card do you prefer for flights, hotels bookings and would you use the same for international transactions while on vacation?
Flights are cheap - anyone up for a spontaneous group holiday to Tulum/Cancun? 😊
Had a PL first round interview last Friday (8/26). Should I give it two full weeks before reaching out? Hoping that I haven't heard back because of people being busy with closing up quarter end and getting ready for the holiday. Boston Consulting Group

Hey y’all, looking to change firms. Have a Masters Degree and couple months experience. New to field. Any ideas on what companies or positions I should apply for? Don’t know if I should do consultant or analysis. Completely open to location.
Looking for ideas on how to handle the following: 10 attorney firm. Founding partner in his 80s and still comes in. Lately, he has become abusive to staff, angry, and making office miserable. 3 paralegals have complained about his fits.
Not sure how to change/approach this. I’m a junior partner who gets stuck with the fallout, hiring if people leave, and my life is now being made to be miserable too.
This person is not involved in the day-to-day anymore so when they come in, it's chaos.
How much payscale can we expect in Accenture for Technology Lead role as per current market ?
Growing up I’ve always wondered if I had some form of ADHD since I had a lot of trouble focusing in class. Lately I’ve found myself zoning out during meetings more often and started wondering again. Can anyone share their journey on how they got diagnosed, what your first steps were, and if you used any firm resources?
Equity. Equality. Tolerance. All three are important. All three are being overused and I fear people will become complacent due to this. What about ACEs? What about SEL? What about deferential instruction? School family? DAP? Achievement gap? Am I the only one who feels that way?

Got promoted to Associated Director. I feel like don’t look the part. I still have my new hire backpack! Is there a nice laptop bag that gives MD vibes? I don’t like the brown logo bags from LV though. Doesn’t have to be a brand name or expensive, just want to look polished and not transitory. Like I’ve finally arrived.
Putting on fat in tummy, looking bad in all my clothes. Any specific suggestions for reducing - other than no alcohol, oil and more exercise?

What a good news to have on Friday. IR35 repealed from April 23. Good old days of contracting are back. Good riddance from consulting companies who charge big rates and pay peanuts.

How gender diverse is your recruitment pipeline? Have been observing a year-on-year decline in female candidates as a % of total candidates. Recent few years have been in the low to mid 30s. Interested to see how other firms are going.
Hi guys! It's my first post on here :)
I finished engineering at uni (last year) and now work in engineering consulting, a lot of systems planning, feasibility studies, safety some high-lvl design. The thing is... It all feels like a pile of bs to me! Business playground where we chat obvious stuff that could be done by the first guy you ask from the campus. Is it just me? Any comments thoughts on that?
