I truly feel I can never take off. I’m out of office for the next week taking a bar exam and then going on a well needed vacation. After studying and taking another bar. However I’m still getting emails and meetings. So far I have 2 calls this week and I’m out of office.
Open up? Sure, I think it's time. But to relax mask requirements just as we are returning from a spring vacation? I don't think it's a good idea...
I finally got a job and am very excited..but wanted to understand: Is 20 day PTO and 10 day holiday good? I had grand ideas of getting unlimited pto and working remotely and feel I can’t do this with 20 days The pay is good-ish and I am trying to negotiate on that. Can I negotiate on holidays, or anything else?
How is the proposed tax holiday going to work? You don't pay taxes now but owe it by April 15 2021?
Should I feel bad about spending ~1k in food this month? I've been all alone this holiday season so food is my only comfort...
Any fish out there willing to share some background check horror stories? I’m waiting on mine to clear before submitting my resignation but can’t think of anything that could pop up to warrant not submitting sooner and taking some time off
PwC New York Metro holiday party invitation just went out. No longer allowed to bring +1s. Brutal.
Has anyone attempted to or actually yoloed by billing 2k hours for the year then just going awol on an extended vacation until the next year? Put that unlimited vacation time and those minimum hours to the test. Honestly can't see why I should essentially do work for free after hitting hours.
If your birthday falls on a weekday, do you take PTO or work? I’ve seen a fair amount of people take PTO on birthdays (I have not done this). Just curious what others do!
Pros and cons of bringing a +1 to the office holiday party? I'm young and new to the firm, and I have a vague sense that it seems unprofessional...what's the 🐠 take?
Came back from vacation... time to plow through 324 low priority emails while i was gone 😂
What agencies have flexible time off??
Everyday I think about quitting & how much I hate my job. When do I say enough is enough and quit? I have a family to support & a ton of student loans so it not like I can be unemployed. Just recently switched careers so it's unlikely I'd be able to find something better soon. I feel so trapped. Sometimes I have thoughts that if I'm seriously hurt I can take time off suddenly & have a real break but I know that's not good. (More in comments.)
Felt good seeing the fireworks riding down I20 thru atlanta tonight. Enjoy the last 30 minutes of this holiday and we’ll keep going strong tomorrow. 💪🏽
WTF Hill Holiday????
Also, how many times do you receive an “urgent request” before the client goes on vacation? Here’s this important stuff I need done, but won’t be around to answer questions until 2 days before due.
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Put on a bit of weight during COVID and have a pretty serious interview coming up this Friday. Any suggestions on dresses? Likely a size 16 at the moment - really want to look put together but I can’t find anything!
Got offered a consulting job with CFGI for a manager position (12% raise). I don’t like Audit anymore and it just makes me unhappy. It impacts my health a lot. Had to work till 4-5 am during busy time and some very busy days during this summer. Partners tried to help me move to Deals since beginning of the year but it won’t happen right away. They will ask me to do the audit for another year. My guts told me to move to CFGI but I’m nervous. Should I move now in Sept or wait for PwC uncertainly?
Anyone know the Deloitte Hilton code?
Does any of the MBB have a decent-sized life science strategy consulting practice? (In my region, I seem to only see IQVIA LEK ZS getting the projects)
What job opportunities exist outside of agency world for account people? I feel like all client jobs require an MBA or 5+ years of experience. I can’t see myself in agency world past 2 years from now
Our school is in 100% Remote learning right now. I have a kindergarten student whose goals are: Participating during circle time, completing a task before transitioning, and to play with his peers during unstructured play time. How can I support him during remote learning. Any ideas as to what I can send home? Thanks in advance!
Well folks according to Bloomberg, AT Kearney and Strategy& put everyone to dust for median pay for all Companies. Mck and BCG were there. No Bain or other Big 4. Google and Facebook also very strong.
Can I resign my first week on the job if I got another offer that is WAY better? What do I say? I’m beyond dreading this conversation. They are working to onboard me to a potential client already.
Trying to set up a nice home office camera with multiple displays. Can anyone recommend some options?
Have any of you been rejected after getting picked in the H1B lottery (and after being on RFE status) ? I just got a notification saying my H1B petition has been denied.
Anyone fly NYC to LAX? Starting this commute weekly next week. Have status with delta. What's the best airport to use? Any chance of Delta One upgrades for a Gold Medallion on this flight or never?
Friend has JD/MBA and 130k in student loans and after 3 months of looking just accepted a job for 72k. That’s a nightmare right there. Really adjusting my desire to go get my MBA now.
Here is my idea for a startup! I collect all the data from career transitions and use Data Analytics to predict the most likely career transitions. I could start with consulting. What do you guys think about this? I would be able to predict based on your firm(mbb, big4), your experience, which role you are likely to move (Faang pm, strategy manager, move to mbb). I have all the data to do this, but wanted your thoughts. Would the output of this be relevant to you?
I had almost ten people die in my friend group in the second half of 2020 and I got very depressed and started performing poorly at work. I didn’t tell my higher ups until it became an issue. I thought I could get through it and plus I figured they wouldn’t care.. It was decided that I get put on a PIP. Lesson learned to communicate.. 🙁 Anyone have tips for getting back on the right track
What is it like in industry if your role is SEC and SOX? Is that a good path or is it a dead end with Big 4 like hours?
Anybody try this work desk out? Would be terrified of falling asleep or at least my arms falling asleep 🤣.
