Just got dumped after 6 months. We had a serious connection so I thought, said we loved each other, talked about future, looked like I was everything he said he wanted. But he thought I was out of his league, more established, there was an age difference, I have older kids, he has one young child. I lurked on his IG and he is on vacation with someone else 😂🥺 I’m HEARTBROKEN. How tf do I recover?!?
I've noticed that a lot of angel group meetings happen during the work day. My understanding is that most angels have other day jobs. Do people just take time off work to go to these meetings? Are most angels entrepreneurs themselves?
Am a new joiner and wanted to know whether we have holiday tomorrow and where can we find the holiday calendar?
Planning a vacation in late June, any recommendations for somewhere with lots of golf and with a bit of nightlife/near beach and if not a beach - a resort with a nice pool. Ive been to Miami already. Would be for ~5 days
Remember to book your PTO and use these codes
I don’t know what it is, but I cannot build energy to do any more work. Originally I was burnt out, took some PTO and traveled for a week. Came back, no change in my feelings.
Need advice. My sister is in a DV relationship. I haven’t seen her in over a decade. A friend reached out and let me know she was in trouble. I traveled from another city to check in on her and she was not at her house. I found out that she and her soon to be ex are in a secluded lake house and I don’t know the location of said vacation home. I feel like I need to do a wellness check on her but I’m not sure how to proceed. Any advice fellow Fishies?
I have been in sales even before college. I'm reaching a burn out. I feel like the expectations get higher the more work I put in and that ends with me putting on many hats to get done. I can't catch a break, let alone allowed a decent vacation without having to negotiate based on performance. I honestly don't want to be in sales forever. I'm versatile when it comes to any tasks due to the nature of wearing many hats. Any suggestions?
A sign I need to fire some clients: when my out of office email reply hits the next reaction is to immediately call my cellphone. Nope. Call the number I left in the email to gain assistance. I cannot help you from jury duty, the doctor’s office, vacation, or anywhere else I might be when the auto replay directs you elsewhere.
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?
If I have 21 RSUs vesting may 21 but another job offer (not from a FAANG but from a Series D SaaS), could I ask new company to “buy out” my RSUs? They want me to start May 1 so I can go on a company trip end of May. What are options people have tried? I don’t want to stay at Amazon until May 23 because will miss the trip with my new company and not have any time off in between jobs (I’m burnout). Amazon
Wayfair Wants us to work Black Friday week but says we have to make up our free thanksgiving holiday they gave us for regular pay first before we can get double pay, is it just me or that sneaky? I’d rather get double to work the holiday! 😡 thoughts? Wayfair
I have chronic health issues and I’m severely depressed. I can’t even get myself to work anymore. If I don’t quit, I’m in serious danger of being fired. I feel that I need to just quit and take time off to get better but feel that it will be a stain on my career. I’m a pretty junior lawyer. Any advice. I just can’t do any work at all and I’m my anxiety and depression is spiraling out of control. I see a therapist I try to cope and it’s not working.
Have seen comp for NACR (restructuring) listed at around 150-200 for analysts, 200-275 for associates, and one mention of senior associates at 375k. Supposedly NACR gets crushed in terms of hours. But i've also read that targets are around 2000 hours per year? Something doesn't add up.....e.g. Associate $550/hr * 25% cap rate * 2000 billable hrs = $275k.......but 2000 hours is slightly over 40 hours a week (including 4 weeks vacay), not the 80 hr/week. So is there a ton of time on vacation?
why do i feel guilty taking time off work … i’ve only been off for officially 1 day and I’m already on my laptop responding to emails the next
My school has seen combinations of f2f, hybrid, and remote teaching/learning throughout the first half of the school year. After the MLK holiday, our district is returning to traditional f2f teaching 100%. I have 4 band classes (1 beginning, 2 intermediate, & 1 advanced), and as far as content pacing is concerned, we’re 1 9-week grading period behind. Is it a far fetched goal to get my students where they need to be by the end of the school year? How would you handle a situation like this?
It’s been two years almost since I’ve Scuba dived due to covid and last vacation. Who else is excited but a little nervous about getting back out there? Any recommendations on where to get my fins wet again?

AWS or Salesforce?
How to deal with staff/seniors that appear to need micromanaging? I feel as if more micromanagement will be counterproductive and exacerbate the problems. But at the same time, work isn’t getting done timely enough or at a high enough quality.
Has anyone not gotten their stimulus check yet? I keep checking the IRS website and it’s leading me nowhere and am wondering what the issue is.
Has anyone here permanently moved to a lower COL area during COVID? If yes, where did you move from/to and did you have to take any sort of salary adjustment? Curious about how companies are handling this in our new remote working world....

How much money does one need per month to live a good life at Zürich? Let’s assume single, renting, eating out 2 meals everyday out of pocket (delivery because I won’t cook), and going for weekend trips once per month. Location of home depends, eg 30 mins away from Zurich by train. Thanks!
