If I’m starting on a 100% travel engagement and my parents live an hour away from my home office & they’ve been begging me to move on back home, is it worth keeping an empty in my home city?
What is the Deloitte Marriott corporate code?
First day in industry and go to look at my time sheet.... What? There’s only one code I need to put my time to if I’m working? I can submit it weekly? And I don’t need to give at least 2 weeks advance for PTO when I’m requesting it? Oh me oh my why did I not make this move sooner!
Wanted to provide an Amex plat airline credit data point . Booked a flight to PR for $390 paid a part of it with delta gift card. I got reimbursed for the reminder of my credit ($141). Cont.
Went to kids holiday party using Lyft. My son gets car sick easily so I warn the driver right away. Lots of traffic + he breaks pretty hard = my 2yo threw up 2 blocks before we get off. 5 min later ..
Why do companies plan holiday parties at 5PM/6PM? Does anyone actually get off work that early
How do you expense room service for a meal? It seems like it would just increase the hotel bill in the expense buffer.
Key West vs Miami for a baby moon in December / January? Any Marriott recommendations for a low key getaway in either location?
I’m waiting on my offer letter from Deloitte and coming in as a senior. I was just wondering what some of the perks are (pto, etc).
How is the Canadian consulting market like, do Toronto consultants stay on local clients for the most part? So no airline miles and hotel points? Asking since Toronto has disproportionate population and economy share in Canada. I am from the US firm.
“So we’ve cut their pay, axed most of their friends, what’s next?” “Ohhh ohhh, their PTO, but make it seem like it’s a good thing”
Do you go to bars alone? Not the hotel bar where you drink/work, an actual bar where you have college kids partying it up
There’s a scene in the 3rd season of the west wing where josh is talking to Leo about wanting to go away on vacation to Tahiti with a woman he’s dating. Josh is reluctant to take time off, as a lot..
Have taken an unpaid leave to spend time/vacation with family in my home country. It’s caused an issue with my manager which is making me anxious and depressed. How can I compartmentalize my anxiety and be present with family for the next few weeks before going back to the office?
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.
If you have 10 days PTO left, can you just serve your last 2 weeks on PTO if you give two weeks notice? Or would you have to take the PTO after your two weeks notice?
How would you make the business case for adding more diversity to the workforce. I think we take it as a given that people will support this, but some people need to see $$ and #s to be moved.
Poll: When will the Big 4: A) reopen offices B) have mandatory return to office Please include your city in your post.
Does it bother you that the job market is so faddish? When I left college (pre-crisis) most wanted to work for a bank or MBB. Now all I hear about is FANG (but mostly G) and startups.
Does anyone have insight into why some consulting firms have better h1b approval than others? Post-mba consultant at D and I’m seeing friends at other firms with much better approval rates after graduation from mba but I imagine we do very similar types of work
Section chair sent me a job offer. Before I accept, he lowers it because apparently he lacked the authority to offer me that much and had gotten overruled by someone higher up the chain. What the heck
Producers, what changes are you making in your roles to promote lasting social change? Demanding diversity in reels? Pushing representation in casting? How can we be (and do) better? All ideas are welcome.
Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out. It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
I recently transitioned to wfh full-time, in house. Amazing gig - I’m not complaining - but I literally never have to wear suits or anything fancy. Coworkers wear t-shirts, rarely blouses. My background is litigation, so I’m used to wearing sweaters, cardigans, suits, dresses. I don’t want to be the only one wearing business casual outfits but I can’t bring myself to wear a tank top/t-shirt and sweats/leggings every day. Advice for what to wear to wfh now that I’m just dressing for me? (Cont.)
I’m in second trimester. I just came from my grandfather’s funeral, outside. My aunt was around her 2 siblings last week that had Covid and she hasn’t been vaxed. She hugged me and mom (4 weeks from her last chemo session) and only told us about her siblings after. I’m so mad. I guess I’m just venting but the potential complications for the baby, me, and my mom make me worry. Any comforting words?
How much compensation I can expect/ask at Deloitte for technical specialist (.Net Azure) role. My TOE is 9. My current CTC is 19 LPA
I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.
How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
I I have a interview with ey for a sap finance role. Can anyone help me with what the interview process looks like
I had a recruiter from EY contact me for a Manager role. What’s the culture like at EY? How’s the WLB? Would you recommend working there or should I run? 😅
I’m trying very hard to break into tech within marketing sector. Can anyone help and direct me to the right next steps? I started finishing up couple books about product, and applying to jobs for a year now
Not proud of it, but I was hooking up with a co-worker/friend pre-COVID. I left the state when wfh started and we still talk every day, but nothing romantic. He made it clear at the beginning that he didn’t want to date because we’re co-workers. Stung a bit when I went on a dating app this morning and saw his profile. The rational part of me knows we’re only ever going to be buddies and that if he actually wanted me, then he’d make something happen. Looking for advice on how to get over this.
