How do you take time off during the day to see a therapist? I haven't gone since I freelanced (when time was flexible) and I really feel like I need to go back.
Can I get a pto day without my email blowing up?
I, a childless woman who does not plan to have kids, am jealous of the parental leave parents get to take from work from choosing to have a child (a big life event). I 100% understand that they are working in a different way by taking care of the baby and being deliriously worn out in the process, but it makes me sort of jealous that unless I have a kid there is no life event that I can take ~3 months away from work to focus on and enjoy, plus have my hours prorated and a job to come back to.
MDs came back from conferences and sales engagements across the world. Now they're too sick to function on calls and blow their noses on mic instead of just taking time off. Do it rly be like that??

Going to Italy for vacation. Rome > Pompeii > Amalfi Coast > Florence > Milan > Venice. Too much for 13 days? Any advice would be hugely appreciated!
Serious question and I’m not a lawyer so no one come for me. Is there any legal action that could be taken to make them payout our unused vacation? Class action lawsuit? I mean this vacation is literally included as part of our total compensation in our benefits summary. We are for lack of a better word, ENTITLED to it. I don’t know where I would look to see what the options would be.
Let’s say you make between 200-250k, 40-45 hr/week with ~6 weeks PTO, interested in owning a home, enjoy traveling for leisure.￼ And you prefer a warmer climate. What US city would you live in, why?
Are there any Marriotts that are ski lodges or near one (<30 min away)? Looking to use points for a ski vacation. Beginner slopes appreciated 😀
Do folks negotiate and get more PTO these days? Considering a move but don’t want to start at the bottom (10+ years with my current employer).
Indie voter since 1997. Why don’t the Dems and GOP just trade horses? Dems give in on Voter ID; GOP give in on a National Election Day (federal holiday) or a weekend voting day? Seems like a no-brained.
My SO is always adjusting our lives to accommodate his family - from our holiday plans, to where we may settle down, etc. however whenever he needs help he reaches out to my family. It really really bothers me but whenever I say it he says I’m so transactional in mindset about my family helping. Not the case imo but yes it bothers me that he has my sister help him with things but plans life to convenience his brother

How much does YOE matter? 3 YOE out of undergrad and I just got the manager promotion at a B4 consulting shop (FB hasn’t updated companies but I used to be at D 😅) Will my lack of experience hurt me when I’m looking for exit ops (ideally to tech)?
CPI officially 7% for 2021! The scary part is this number is going to keep climbing well into 2022. The Feds plans to raise rates will only help so much but not solve the problem! What are people doing to hedge?
Current comp is near the top of the band for a role I was offered. If I jumped I would be taking a ~7% increase while I was hoping for something closer to 20%. Is it possible to counter and push past the band? I was offered a raise during my interview process so the original jump of 15% was decreased to 7% based on my new salary.
Has anyone been fired/let go/asked to leave from their company because of their company’s return to work policies? What was your experience?
