How much did you spend per person on holiday gifts this year? Curious what most people are doing. Talking to friends I feel cheap. Although I’m a proud miser and don’t care, I’m just curious.
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.
Looking to plan a family resort getaway next spring. Will be first trip/legit vacation in two+ years by that point. May bring our nanny with us to help with our three young kids so we can relax some too. What do you consider reasonable cost for a ~4 day nice resort getaway (with airfare) for family of five + nanny? I know an Airbnb is cheaper but we’re looking to feel a little spoiled. My quick research is something like $5-10k… is that nuts for a four day vacation?
After 2 weeks of PTO, I don't feel rested at all. In fact it made me realize how much I look forward to being retired..

Was it a weak year for vendor holiday gifts?
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
Any recommendations for Marriott properties in Caribbean or Central America to spend points for the family vacation? May. Everything seems to be blacked out.
Are there jobs in advertising (or out for that matter) where taking vacation time doesn't feel bad?
Where to get the energy/time to job search while on the job? Thinking of weekends then booking a week of PTO for formal/informal interviews
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...
People who schedule their wedding on holiday weekends are the worst. I’m not changing my holiday plans for you…

Does anyone else feel as though they ought to either (1) quit your job or (2) cry when senior folks in your department boast somehow (or complain) they’ve not taken a week+ long vacation in two years?
Is it acceptable to give your 2 weeks with some days that encompass a holiday (I.e. Memorial Day and the Friday before).
Spinning off an earlier post, is it better to quit or get laid off? I would think quitting and using the time to "re-center" (i.e. Travel for a few months) then job hunt would look better than lay off

I'm racking up a backlog of points that I'm not spending, SPG, Marriott, Amex, Chase(SR), AA and Dellta. What's the best way to keep track of them all and manage for best redemption?
Is it wrong to not want a promotion? Ive been told I’m on track for one soon but I still have sooo much to learn at this level and I don’t feel ready to move up. I am, in fact, terrified of the next step and the responsibilities that come with it. Has anyone turned down a promotion and regretted it? Been glad about it?

Is your company doing annual raises this year? If so, what’s the typical annual raise (%)?
Tax savvy people, i have questions. my employer reduced everyones salary during the first 6 months of covid, but offered a “bonus” (aka back to normal rate) if you were required to travel during this time. How will the temporary salary cut + travel bonus affect my filing? Idk I’m feeling petty
Forget Glassdoor. The government publicly reports the salaries of H1B visa employees. http://h1bdata.info/index.php?em=&job=&city=&year=All
I feel trapped. We work hard, break glass ceilings, put in all the blood, sweat and tears needed to "make it". Usually twice as fast, with a babe on a hip - cooking, running a call. I'm over 50, solo and a parent & over the rat race. I've been putting out feelers and feeling the over 50 burn. I don't need to lead the world - a small piece would be nice, ok money. Fun people, easy roll, smart work, build smart people - cool teams. I get "you'll be bored here - we can't afford you". What2do?
Has anyone used or considered using MyConsultingOffer (MCO)? Do you think it was worth it and if not, what would you do instead? Currently working at a Big4 but would like to make a move to a MBB/T2 firm. Appreciate any input you may have!

In my early thirties, still an Engagement Manager only making $355k basic, plus benefits and guarenteed minimum bonus of $100k. What did I do wrong? #Satire #DoesAnyoneElseFeelThisTypeOfDiscussionHappensWayToMuchHere? #WhyDoSoManyPeepsNeedValidation? Not trying to put people down, but seems there are far too many people on the hamster wheel just churning and in need of validation. Any thoughts? Am I off base?
