Before people come at me, I typically don’t take much PTO so I’m not entirely sure how this works. If I am one or two days short of what I have left would I just go into a deficit? Or will it not allow me to even put the request in?
My PTO was approved for the Thanksgiving & Christmas weeks but I’m totally clueless about the vacation spot given the pandemic situation. Requesting your recommendations. Warm places preferably! Thinking of Hawaii/Keywest
Second year analyst who got staffed on a 2-3 week engagement with potential to get extended but not confirmed. Planning a vacation that happens to be the month of go live, is it fair for me to take it
EY what’s the catch with unlimited PTO? Is it actually unlimited? Recent hire and just trying to figure out PTO for the holidays
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.
Non public accounting professionals, how much PTO do you get? And how hard/easy is it to take? (I.e., need formal approval far in advance, or can you decide last minute to take a couple days off any given week, etc)
This is more of a sanity check, but ending the billable year at around 2550 is absurdly high, right? I have two weeks to go and am easily going to hit 50 hours by then…I know this year has been bad for everyone (I’m in a rising 6th year in a finance group), but I feel like I’ve been extra crushed with work (And I’ve been removed off 3 matters earlier this year, due to lack of time). For what it’s worth, I was in 2800+ pace until I took a vacation in late August….
When did you stop traveling and stay put in your home town?? Assuming things are normal by spring my family has a vacation planned in early may, I’m due in June. I’ll check and consult with dr too 🙂
How are firms handling the economic downturn in terms of billable hour requirements for associates? Are annual billable requirements being updated or mitigated in any way? Curious to see how other firms are handling this issue, and also afraid of not being able to take any time off until 2021 😳
Deloitte moms, how much of your 6 month mat leave is made up of short term disability and how much is paid parental time off?
I took a positive pregnancy test this morning (yay!) after a four-day vacation that involved way more than my fair share of drinking. I’d taken a pregnancy test the day I left for vacation and it was negative. While I am so excited about the positive test, especially after miscarrying several months ago, I can’t help but feel totally guilty and worried I may have affected the baby. Please tell me I’m not the only one who has experienced this and whether my anxiety is warranted!
Are holidays (unlike vacation days) excluded from the denominator of the utilization formula?

I love orange is the new black but can’t stand how the inmates make pop culture references that they wouldn’t even know had they been in prison since at least 2013.

Generalist🐠at MBB: do corp dev roles at FAANG, or operational VC/PE roles, care that you were a “generalist” when exiting? I’ve been approached for data analytics roles at MBB (some specialized), but everyone tells me to go generalist when starting....
I’ve been told that I’m going to be teaching “in person” on Dec 2. We have been Remote since March 13th. Just the “high needs SPED and ELL”will be in class. I have 2 kids out of my 6-sub-separate developmentally delayed students and the ELL teacher will have 3 out of her 14. We will both be in separate classrooms and the adults will change-not the kids- we share one student. I was told if we are at least 8 ft apart the students can take off their masks... anyone else hear this?
