Left on vacation with the boyfriend, 1 hour into the drive realized I forgot my Switch at home 🤦🏼♀️ Effectively adding 2 hours to our trip to go back for it, hope this dumb sea otter event doesn’t lead to me getting dumped on vacay 🙃
Starting a new industry job next week and this is my first non-consulting job. What should I expect in the first couple weeks, especially given that it’s the start of holiday season?
Is it bad or weird that I actually kinda miss work? Just a teeeeeeeny bit. I've been abroad on vacation for about 2 weeks now.
How do I lessen the resentment I feel towards associates who do subpar work, or take lots of vacation? Being more successful and making more money only goes so far.
How does the holiday weekend impact your quota? Still the same? It's still the same for me, which I feel is unfair.
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.
Anyone else frustrated that their friends don't have enough money or PTO to do anything fun? I'm 28, single, and I really want to jetset at least a LITTLE after this whole pandemic, but I don't have any adventure buddies :( not trying to sound spoiled- in the case of my friends, they just chose more restrictive career paths. I'm afraid to lose these years before people are married and having kids and REALLY can't do anything
Denver Fishes - I need some serious help. I got an email from my future employer, Accenture, to get my i9 authorization done while I am here on vacation. The issue is that they need someone to be an authorizing agent, a physically present adult who can verify that I have the documents(passport card). This needs tp be done in the next two days. I don’t know too many folks here. By any chance could someone help me out with this? I can send you the info and coffee/lunch is on me.
It’s that time of the month and symptoms are so bad that I want to request PTO and take off for the rest of the day. What’s the most appropriate response to give to my male boss as to why I am requesting this PTO? Do I just be blunt or should I say I’m experiencing “lady problems.”
Hey all, I remember seeing a email where it states PTO this year will not effect utilization.. But i see it resulting in a low utilization for me.. Both standard and adjusted are at 75%..Can someone please help me understand this.. Thanks
One day before vacation, I got an okay project review today. I am stressed out about finding a new job and performing better at my current job. I lost excitement for my vacation. Someone cheer me up!!
I need perspective. I was scheduled for a bunch of spa services today before a vacation. Early in the morning, a spa lady calls me to reschedule. I tell her I can’t reschedule due to my job. She replies that she remembers me mentioning that from a previous appointment she “helped me rescue.” She never acknowledged knowing me prior to that comment. I was offended as it came across as judging my stress level and availability based on a service I received years ago. Did I get unreasonably upset?

Any insight into Jackson Lewis? Especially the smaller offices? Do Associates generally get promoted to Partner? Do they match 401K contributions? Quality of life? PTO?
Going on 10 day vacation to Europe and it’s taking about a week to shop,prep, pack. My DH thinks I am overthinking and I should be all packed and ready in 30 minutes.
IPG folks: have any of you switched to a different agency within the network? Were you able to "bring" your benefits with you to the new agency? Things like 401(k) matching, vacation days, etc?
Starting MBB soon and would appreciate any recommendations on preparing myself for success on my first day? I’ve got a number of weeks until I start and will take some time off, but I’d also like to stay sharp and come in feeling confident. Any suggestions are welcome.

Anyone have success renting a one-way car rental for the upcoming weeks? All major car rental companies are showing as sold out no matter which location I select- which I find strange. I tried post holiday dates just to see but no results still. I’m not trying to go cross country, just NE to SE.
Hi Fishes! All help appreciated I received an offer from my dream co. - McKinsey. Have another discussion with HR for comp. & joining details, once I accept the offer. I want to join after 4 months (2m of notice period at Deloitte & 2m I want for personal self). How do I take that up? How much deferral of joining is normal? Suggest some reasons (something that sounds genuine | Honestly want to sit home for 2 months and relax, but not sure if HR will accept it) Share experiences if anyone?

Hey 🐠 I’m an MBA student and consultant getting ready for on campus recruiting. I have upcoming interviews at a Tier 2 strategy firm and one of the FAANGs for internal strategy, but I’m looking to recruit as much as possible to increase my odds given the current economic climate. Would anyone from the MBB firms be willing to send a referral to my school’s campus recruiting lead (I have their names and can draft an email to save you time). Please and thanks!
