Did everyone take a day or two off to celebrate the holiday? Does anyone feel pressure to work on the holidays? It seems like major meetings get schedules with no thought about the high holidays
I received an offer from Deloitte as a Consultant - the offer letter didn’t specify amount of PTO. Should I clarify this with the recruiter or is it standard at every level?
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.
Looking to take a family vacation out west in August and my mom really want to go to Big Sky. I really want to do Yellowstone, but I feel like it’s best to stay in the park for a couple of nights to really experience Yellowstone, rather than a day trip in from Big Sky. Thinking we should do a couple nights in Big Sky and a couple nights in Yellowstone. Planning to fly in and out of Bozeman. Any recommendations for Big Sky or Yellowstone? Anyone stayed in Yellowstone?
When your S.O. has a bad day and stress bakes some cookies, you eat 2 of them and say they're great even though they're way overcooked and stiff. Everyone enjoy the holiday weekend!
My firm is implementing an unlimited PTO policy so for those of you who’s companys already have it - do you like it, how does it work, and what is the max number of days that you would take off?
Tfw youre going on vacation but still have a crap load of work unfinished and a lot more new work waiting for you when you come back... And of course I’ll be thinking about that while on “vacation”..
i have to go back to work after a week of pto... i've never felt this devastated in my entire life
Took PTO to make it a four day weekend...first few hours back today and I already feel stressed out, anxious and like I want to quit. Burn out or just advertising?
To all the 🐠 who serve/d our country and their families - thank you for this holiday weekend. 🇺🇸
Any big companies offer same pto time as big four? I find myself at a smaller company struggling to get to even enjoy my pto as I’m always on
Is it typical in workforce implementations for the directos to all go out of office for weeks? Or is this just because it’s summer and vacation season…
Dear Leadership: No, I will not cancel my vacation to continue to drive a broken plan. If "optics" seems like the best lever to pull, it is clear to me why we are where we are. #workSmarter
Had an offer for 30% more , a promotion to manager, extra week of vacation to switch firms. I love where I am at with my clients and there is a lot of potential there. Should I stay the course?
Best bang for your buck vacation -- looking for a decent beach immediately after busy season. Ideas??
Dumb question but if I’m taking PTO Friday-Monday, is my end time at 12AM on that Monday or Tuesday on outlook?

How does one put in two weeks while on vacation? And is it customary to not start the two weeks until after one comes back?
Moving from big 4 to big 4 should you always counter their offer? Like what if it’s not the best offer in the market but above what you make now and you just want fo secure the position?
I’m up for promotion next year (will find out around February next year) and expecting my first baby in April. I get 16 weeks maternity leave and also considering whether to tack on a 3 month sabbatical or not. Should I take the sabbatical? I get 1/3 of my salary and can only use the sabbatical once every 5 years so I’m thinking it’s probably very unlikely I could take 3 months off in my career 5 years later….(cont)

Am interviewing at small to midsize accounting firms. I have passed my first trimester and am receiving positive responses from my interviewers. At what stage, if any, do I inform potential employers of my pregnancy?
>thought I trainwrecked an interview because i couldn't answer any technical questions ... > get offered r2 interview anyway because I have a 'good attitude' ... I'll take it 👌
Well fuck. I got laid off. Just when you think you’re in the clear, 2020 brings the pain. Guess it’s true that the big title comes with a big target.
Hi fishies, I had an approved I-539 for an L2 visa. Would I be eligible for Dropbox visa stamping? Any other ways to get stamped would be greatly appreciated as well. Thank you!
Anyone from PwC know if there's a way to escalate things to get into my 401k without PwC mailing me a PIN #? Forgot my external login PW and it'll take 7-10 business days to get it in the mail.
So, 100% of the times I’ve got further in the interview process and I’ve got an interview with the ECDs or CCOs, I got the job. Always. Except for the 2 last ones. And the only difference was...cont
With two years of consulting experience, I’m scared of looking for jobs. You may laugh at my imposter syndrome, but I developed an interview phobia. The last time I studied for case interviews was in the final semester of my MBA a bit over two years ago. After I’ve failed many interviews (cases), I got into my current job by cracking difficult cases. Now, busy with ongoing projects, I have no desire to study case interviews again. How much of practice would bring me back to proficiency? 3-4 mos?
Question: I withdrew from my 401K during COVID in Nov 2020 because I really needed the money. The penalty was waived bc of Covid. Does anyone know if I can put that money back into my account?
