Do any of you save specifically for vacation every year? Husband and making a case for saving about 10% for yearly family vacations. We currently save or invest 40% of our income. Thoughts? Best practices for yearly vacations?
What’s your favorite holiday commercial this year? Mine is the Mercedes commercial with the puppy, i smile like an idiot every time it’s so adorable: https://youtu.be/LpuUtgOqVLk
I am on PTO this week and my manager keeps Slacking, texting and emailing me asking questions that I believe can wait until next next week. She has also asked me to take a minute and send a quote. I am trying to do better and when I take PTO I’m focused on really taking time off and spending time with my family. Any suggestions on how to handle this?
There should be an election holiday every four years to make sure people exercise their right to vote!!
I was just told by my manager that taking a 2 week vacation would look bad while staffed on a client project. I’ve already been on this project for over a year and another extension is coming. Take 1week, he said. My husband and I planned to travel to Europe from the west coast which is expensive and time consuming. We don’t want to limit ourselves to 1 week. Has anyone else run into this type of situation? Can management really dictate how long you can get away - if you have the days accrued?
I found out today that someone I used to hookup with is going to be joining the company when we come back from holiday and might report into me. How should I deal with this?
What is it about clients that obligates them to go on vacation as we’re preparing to close on a deal (or they decide to leave the country the morning of closing)? Is it something in the water?
Coca-Cola holiday commercial with Polar Bears and a Puffin... is it weird they used a straw?
Is it weird to go to the holiday party stag?
We are in NYC and wondering what everyone is doing about staff holiday parties. We obviously skipped it last year but not sure about this year. We fly in the team from all our offices which means this event is the only time everyone gets to meet face to face so it’s a popular event.
If somebody were to put in their 2 week notice prior to the Holiday shutdown, would you get paid for the holidays or would they terminate your employment once you log off for break?
I have a question i and my wife make 400k pre tax in nj. How much should i be spending on vacation each year including yearly trip to India.

Mondays post vacation are so fucking depressing

Not crashing anymore.
This may be a hot take - but as a younger person, working with parents of small kids (especially new parents) is so frustrating. I frequently find myself responsible for picking up the slack due to their family commitments - it’s also somehow completely socially acceptable for kids to barge into zoom meetings screaming. I wouldn’t find it nearly as bothersome if I felt like leadership and parent colleagues took my issues and non work commitments seriously in addition to that of parents and kids
Anyone from ZS willing to submit a referral?
I just accepted an offer at another big4 and I feel so blessed to be making $130k in LOCL as a 23 year old with less than 1.25 YOE. And I find it funny that I'm gonna be "senior" consultant/associate at my age and YOE. I don't know jack shit, and will completely understand if my clients/senior peers don't give me any respect at all. Thank you covid and the great resignation for this wonderous and hilarious opportunity.
How to begin exercising? Anyone have any good plans for absolute beginners? I've just never been into exercising and don't even know where to start
BING CHILLING 🥶
Anyone here ever successfully asked for a raise or promo in their current firm? How did you navigate the balance of asking firmly but also politely without making the situation awkward?
Is it expected that consultants don’t make plans on weeknights? We have night calls to close out the day at 6pm every night but there’s always actions to come out of it. Is it just assumed we are available 24/7 M-F? This is so toxic. I had a friends birthday dinner tonight and the whole night I was anxious about what I’m supposed to be doing tonight.
Attended FTI super day a week ago but still haven’t heard back, is it a reject? Thought the super day went very well!
