I just discovered (duh, in retrospect) that I am burned out. I’m going to up my exercise and meditation game. Any other suggestions from those on the other side of their burnout?
Am I crazy? I recently moved in with my girlfriend of 6 years. I am jewish - I go to temple and celebrate jewish holidays. Technically, she is half jewish half christian. She does not go to temple or church and basically only celebrates Christmas. Continued…
This holiday break has made me seriously consider leaving the Big 4 and going to industry. Anyone left Big 4 cyber for industry recently? Any regrets or things you miss? Is the pay better?
New to NYC! Anyone have tips for navigating subway? Know nothing about it but have taken it last few days as I’ve been running errands to set up my apartment (vacation from work) and it’s almost always delayed. Any trains to avoid or something?
PwC - I'm a first year (started last Aug). I think I have 4 days left of holiday when I look in Kcurve. does this expire at the end of June? It doesn't roll over year over year?
Shot in the dark — COVID-safe girls’ day out ideas for Jan in (gulp) Miami? My MIL is one of my dearest friends and I want to treat her in thanks for the incredible season of holiday hosting she pulls together.
What is some spicy card games that I can play with bae on vacation? - Nothing boring please haha
PwC people - if I am going international for a vacation, can I use data on my company paid phone for personal use?
Need a nice, reasonably priced beach vacation from Boston. Four days. Don’t need a ton of activities but having some scenery would be helpful!
cpa review course expires in 6 mo. & I have yet to study for/pass any exams. I’m considering taking time off right after busy season to try to at least pass something, any advice on what I could do?
I’m supposed to go to Tokyo in about two weeks for vacation. Given the current situation with the coronavirus there, would you still go or should I consider canceling?
How long is the duration of your trips/vacations usually and how often do you take them? Trying to gauge a general workplace etiquette for taking PTO. Thanks!
Singe mom WFH with two kids at home 24/7 and it feels like an impossible task to keep up with work / keep the kids happy / manage it all... no idea how I’ve done it these past 9 months but can’t imagine keeping it up for another who-knows-how-many-months. Any other parents struggling with being grateful to be employed but also so overwhelmed they almost wish they were furloughed? I’m use PTO to try and find some balance but it’s still overwhelming... I know I’m privileged to be in this postition
Just got a “verbal warning of poor performance” I know there’s no excuse but I’ve had extra mental health issues recently on top of family members illnesses and a breakup- I also initially applied for a different role and took this one assuming it wouldn’t be permanent.. my current boss (who never interviewed me) also told me to “reconsider my vacation days”… thoughts on anything?
I’m accepting a job offer tomorrow, and the new company has 5 less PTO days per year than my current company, and it’s prorated based on my start date. I have my full year planned out with my current PTO schedule, and the majority of my PTO is in the latter half of my year (1 week vacation, 3 days for sisters bachelorette party, 2 days for 2 separate wedding out of town). We already negotiated, and I feel bad going back to ask for more PTO, but I need it. What would you do? How to approach?
How does a person know if they actually have it good job wise currently? I always feel like I have it so bad due to not having staff, not being able to use vacation in the winter, the stress, the drama, etc, but I never leave because I think I’m just being a baby.

Didn't know I was supposed to be tipping the entire time I've been on this project (3 months). This is my last week, how much should I leave the bellmen, housekeeping, etc? Apparently I can expense it
What's the Average starting salary for manager in big 4 with about 5 years of consulting experience?
Teacher: Tell the class what's your dad's job? 4yo: He's a Consultant. Teacher: What does he do at work? 4yo: Some people tell him to do things & then he tells other people to do those things 🤦♂️😂
Do you give our Christmas presents to EA?
Any good movie / netflix show recommendations?
When I take calls with students I try to give them candid feedback, eg if they say they want to do consulting because they enjoy travel, I tell them that’s not a good reason for your “story.” Thoughts
Merry Christmas emails to past project partners and senior managers. Good way to keep in touch or sucking up too much?
I was just listening to a podcast and the person said they left their room in such a mess, they left a bigger to tip than usual for the housekeeper. Are you supposed to leave a tip for housekeepers?
