See you in January. Time for PTO 🏃♂️
About to take an offer at EY. Want a baby soon and saw the great news about increased parental leave. Question is, can u use vacation time consecutively with it? Right now most on leave take 5 months
How many unused vacation days did ya’ll throw away in 2017? Most of the M’s/SM’s/PPMD’s I know have saved the max and take less than two weeks each year. Wondering if this is common across the D.
EY - ladies, what to wear to the holiday party?!
I want to go from Tech Consulting to Commercial Law (UK). I know that I need to apply for Vacation Schemes, or try my luck with a Training Contract. Any advice would be much appreciated!
My grandpa is very close to passing away and I’m starting to feel intense grief. For those who have lost someone, how did you approach work? Did you take additional time off?
I learned the other day that Deloitte counts PTO against your chargeability. Is this common with most firms? (ACN doesn't count PTO in chargeability calculations.)
Anyone else at a shop that makes PTO for creatives a total rat race? Only 9 creatives per day.
Is it okay to give one week notice if your last week is a training week and your unassigned the following week? I’ve already used up all my PTO. I’m just afraid of burning bridges
Since the last day of month is a federal holiday (Memorial Day), will direct deposits hit the following day?
Proposal touch point near EOD. I will be PTO tomorrow and unavailable most of the evening. Does it make sense to still attend or should I just decline the invite? I’m kind of nervous saying that I’ll be unavailable for action items. First proposal so sorry for the newb question.
Family member suggested we get $80 headphones for his kids (5 and 3 years old) as holiday gift! I find this excessive! Thoughts?
I’m miserable at my job but want to wait it out until I take an upcoming vacation in July. Is it stupid that I’m not looking for jobs when I’m completely bored, uninspiring and irritated everyday?
Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode. Open to suggestions or ideas. My team is spread out internationally, so even sending a stupid “swag” gift is next to impossible.
Sometimes I volunteer to go on business trips I don't need to go on because that hour or two by myself in the hotel room is the only actual vacation I ever get.
Need advice. Trying to move to industry in bay area. What parts of compensation are negotiable? And how to offset for cost of living?
Hi Fishes , Any program/project managers here ? What do you think is the future of technical program management in India ? Is it for mba grads who are comfortable with technology Or should only pure techies get into it ?
So today I was promoted to senior associate after just over 5 years at the firm. But I still want to leave. So my question is this - how many months should I stay for the guilt (explained below) to fade away before I leave? Guilt - the firm allowed me to work remotely in another country as I pursue a postgraduate degree. There are better opportunities in this country and the salary I would get as a starting salary here can never be matched by the firm.

Has anyone ever requested a weekend interview for a PE or credit fund shop? Are people amenable to that?
I know this is a story that repeats in this bowl but I’ve finally reached my end with this industry. While the pay is great, I’ve grown to dread work. I understand that client side isn’t utopia but where else does a “seasoned” ad person end up?
Someone sent me a copy of their resume and I know there test scores are inflated. It’s not my resume so I don’t care what they do but curious about how inflated test scores are detected when applying
Just accepted my dream job in DC. Unfortunately, I now have to sit for the DC bar this fall (worth it). Used barbri successfully right out of law school to pass the bar in my current state. Should I bite the bullet and pay for another barbri course, or does anyone have recommendations for a more affordable course? Do you think it’s worth trying to get a discount since I’ve already taken one course with them?
I was doing real consulting work for a Wealth Management tech firm and took a job at another tech firm for twice the money. They hired me to the Org because they wanted to stand up a new team that actually worked with customers and consulted for new opportunities. The current Org's 'consulting' title is really glorified onboarding. The point in hiring me was to help with enablement, and eventually manage a team. Con't
I had a dream that I forgot to mute on a weekend firmwide call, began gossiping with my roommie about who's fucking who & what a fluid-covered mess it was, &my boss fake fired me to teach me a lesson
I get there is no such thing as optimal 401k contribution as it varies by person but is 20% too much for someone just starting out? No ROTH offered
What is the comp should I ask for FDD senior in middle market firms right now? Location is considered a relatively HCOL. Can anyone share their experience if you have recently negotiated and accepted the offer?
Do you believe in the idea that you should always be looking/applying for roles, even if you’re content where you’re at? If so, what’s the motivator behind it?
Alright - for the ladies who found other jobs while on mat leave: when did you give notice - on your first day back? And was that essentially your last day at the firm, or did you stick around for a few days to wrap things up? (The new gig doesn’t start for a few months, so that I can be childcare.) I suspect my firm won’t want to pay me for two weeks to just stick around without a project, correct? Thanks in advance for any anecdotes or helpful tips.
5.5 months pregnant. I’ve been having some insanely vivid dreams about breastfeeding my future baby. Weird
Would you rather have a smart client or dumb client? I prefer dumb because they’re easier to please usually
