Thoughts on Google RTO office date? Will it be pushed back more than Jan 10 with the holiday season and all? Don’t want to relocate if we will be postponing RTO
Does anybody here own a holiday home and rent it out? Thinking of building one but given there's barely any tourism I'm thinking my funds could go further elsewhere.

Has anyone bought a vacation rental in Orlando? Any tips? Looking at reunion, windsors, champions gate. It’s all a little overwhelming. I’d plan to rent it out part of the time on vrbo and stay there maybe a month a year.

My boyfriend of 3 years broke up with me yesterday (he moved back home recently, we were doing long distance, and he decided he wanted to focus his time on rebuilding relationships with family/friends he lost touch with). Do any of you have tips of coping with heartbreak while also trying to manage work? I have too much on my plate to take time off, but I’m worried my focus isn’t going to be there on Monday.

Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?

Best places to learn SQL and/or Python for free? I heard of code academy and started there but once I got a couple lessons in it asked me start a free trial/pay for the pro version. I don’t mind paying to learn either but just wanted know if I’m going pay should I still use code academy or something else?
I know it’s petty of me but I am so jealous of my 8 month old relationship with his grandma! It’s beautiful, don’t get me wrong but I wish that he loved me the same way or atleast had similar reaction towards me as well. It’s especially hard because I am FTM, sleep deprived, hormonal and hating my job because it is taking me away from my kid! I try to prioritize (trust me I really really try) but between pumping, managing household and ill health…

Health question: Does anyone else suffer from nerve pain in their butt/hips from sitting all day? My research tells me it’s piriformis pain. It means my sit bones are irritating my butt muscle, which irritates my sciatic nerve. It can be excruciating and hurt even when I stand. I bought a fancy seat cushion for my office chair, and I have a standing desk. Nothing helps. The pain has been around for about a month. Anyone else?? What did you do?
I have a doctors note for diagnosis with depression and anxiety. Can I get extra time on my CPA exam?

Is getting CFE worth it? I’ve failed the 3 different sections of the CPA and I am giving up. But I would like some kind of certification to look a tad more marketable. Thoughts?
Would you ever ask an interviewer “what do you consider my weaknesses as a potential candidate?” Or something of that nature? I’ve been advised to ask it before and am curious. Of course this will be an opportunity to “defend” yourself or highlight your strengths, or propose what you’re doing to improve in those areas. Interested in some other perspective as I have a final interview later this week
For those in big 4, how much time between accepting an offer and start date have you been able to ask for? Is a month feasible/how should one phrase it? Two weeks just doesn’t feel like enough with this heavy burnout/having to wrap up deals at old firm
