2 months on the bench now, and I'm starting to freak out. Projects are picking people that are either local or have more relevant experience than me.
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?
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. 💪🏽
Has it ever occurred that EY HR system count sick days as our PTOs. My recent sick days at all counted as vacations in EY vacation calendar and my sick day time stays as same.
Slalom Seattle - How’s growth going? Any increase in benefits - 401k match or standard PTO? Heard it’s on low side.
Just put in my pto for after busy season and decided on a whim to go to Europe. Well, it's something to look forward to!
Man, i just found out i have a leak in my house water mainline. I am shocked to see the estimated cost. $1100. That will be the highest repair cost that i have to face. Man owning home can incurre lot of repairment cost. There goes my vacation budget in a drain.
Any thoughts on Maurice LaCroix? Just curious...had picked this one up on the whim while window shopping on the streets of Interlaken during the Swiss holiday a few years back. Didn't know much about watches then (and, even now!), but it just felt nice.
Too depressed to get out of bed. I'll just respond to emails from my phone. Too late to take some PTO?
Just got a call from my Mom asking me how to read a pivot table breaking down the vacation itinerary I sent her 🙈 😳
Being on the bench is triggering my anxiety in a way I’ve never experienced before. I’m in a constant state of panic, have chest tightness, feel like I am short of breath or someone is strangling me..
Have you ever worked with a partner that points out every error you make (regardless if it’s nothing or a bigger error) but never points out anything good you do or says thank you? How do you not let it slowly chip away at your confidence and self-worth? I try to let it roll off my back, but it does ultimately affect me and my enjoyment of my job.
When you're taking PTO and communicate you will be unreachable during that time due to personal reasons, so co-workers slide into your IG DMs with work chat because you don't respond via Slack or email 🥴
Last day to roll off, my watch has ended. 🤘🏻
This message comes to you from 35,000 over the Atlantic from a massaging business class seat bought with miles earned this year. All hail PTO
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
I’ve been asked to interview an engineer for a role at my company. They’ve already had an interview with the hiring manager so what questions should I be asking? I’ve never interviewed an engineer before
Retirement question. New industry job. No Roth 401k. Just normal and after tax 401k. What should %s should I put in for each? Can do ~25% of comp into retirement. New Roth IRA? 401k rollover?
WFH/Remote Covid Poll
Hey fishes, based on your own experience during Covid, any idea on how much time it takes under standard processing for H1B transfers? Mine was filed mid September.

What is the general reception to the Siegfried Group? High comp and an out from B4 but that isn’t worth it to me if it’s at the cost of development and career progression. Any tips for someone who is trying to jump ship from B4 as soon as possible?
So I was hired exactly 2 months prior to this covid epidemic and as a result it has made learning how to be a lawyer quite a rollercoaster. I’m trying to learn how things are supposed to be but in all actuality, I’m having to be flexible and figure out how things are working at the moment...which is fine, but it’s hard to predict much of anything when you have nothing to compare it to. Being a law student and interning is nothing compared to practicing. Any advice!?

S2 about to be a S3 in a high COL city making 84k in FDD (top 10 firm) without CPA. Raises are being communicated this week... is it reasonable to counter offer if my raise is not where I want it to be and how could I approach this topic respectfully? I'm really hoping to be in the 94k+ range especially since I've been a key player in my groups biggest client for the last year. I'm considering quiting to pass my exams in the next few months if my raise is not where I want it to be...
