Been on vacation for 3 weeks now and was just assigned to a project for when I get back. Had to log in to sign background checks but completely forgot my password since it's been so long...
I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
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.
Is MLK Day not a holiday for some firms?
I go back tomorrow after a week's vacation. When is it expected I start catching up on email? Tonight? Tomorrow?

When the firm pays out your PTO, are taxes withheld at the typical paycheck rate or the higher rate you see with bonuses? Also do firms account for 401K for PTO payout (not the match, your own)?
Asalamualaikum everyone, hope everyone had a great thanksgiving holiday and some Black Friday shopping with family and friends? This is my first time in this bowl and I’m liking what I see so far.
Headed to a holiday party. quick: give me three interesting non controversial topics to talk about
We risk exposure and bringing it home to our families every time we walk into work, yet are limited to time off work without penalty. What's your sick leave policy?
You know you’re moving up in the world when you have to let more and more people know about your upcoming PTO
Has My People Link been updated for vacation days with the transition to Mercury? Also, if you’re carrying over vacation from the prior year, when do you have to use it by?
What do people do on vacation? First day of vacation and I can't rest - constant feeling of missing something important from work
Who is starting the holiday weekend early?!?! I am! Didn’t get permission, just made a conscious decision to stop working
How do you all feel about splitting vacations 50/50 in a relationship and dates 60/40? I might be old fashioned but this rubs me the wrong way. I feel like I have to work 2x as hard to be taken seriously at work as a woman and pay for all kinds of crap like hair appts, nails, makeup, outfits to be viewed positively by men. Not to mention, expensive birth control, periods, and eventually potentially having a child. 50/50 makes me feel like a friend and not that valued. Thoughts?
I will never understand grown ups that don’t have children that still choose to vacation at Disney
How do I give my two week notice? Through initiating resignation on DNet? I’m also going to be away on vacation until 1.5 weeks before...
First year C here. Button down + chinos + blazer okay for the holiday party? Too casual?
If my firm violated employment law and now I want to leave, how do I negotiate/value a severance?
In the revised compensation letter which we received on June 3, there was a reward section showing an amount of 20k ,just below the Bonus amount. But i don't see that showing up on this month's salary slip under the earnings section. Did anyone else notice this? Am i missing something here?
Anyone a black inclusion network lead for D&I?
When you have a manager so bad, you and everyone under them quit, and HR questions the team about “leadership culture”, but they still get promoted to SM -_-
Does Alaska Airlines have a status challenge? Need to fly with them for a few weeks - no other flight options.
Applying to positions at Google / Microsoft / LinkedIn / a few smaller startups Is it very detrimental to my app if I don’t have a referral & just cold apply on the site?
Someone already posted this but: Delta or American. Heard Delta is nicer but I can do a status challenge for American. Project starts Monday, help! Thank you😘
What a SPEECH!! So excited for the Biden Administration! And they’re hitting the ground running! Biden Coronavirus task force incoming on Monday! Let’s get this virus under control so that we can safely open up our economy!
Why do companies that clearly desperately need people think that assigning a take home case study that takes 10 hours will help their cause.... I will drop out in a heartbeat lol
6 months in at a new firm. 4th year attorney. Completely new practice area from what I did previously. The partner often sends the random potential client call ins my way. Many times, they have questions related to things I’ve never done and he only provides guidance if I can pull him away from something else to ask. I’m super low on hours but feel that it would be ethically wrong to take on a case involving an issue Im totally unfamiliar with and not confident handling. Wrong approach?
Curious the pay difference. What general pay range (US) can someone with 3-5 years of PMO/functional consulting for SAP S4HANA Cloud & On Prem experience expect at a big 4 firm with an MBA(not that having the MBA matters a ton)?
Looking 2 move into industry but most stats on this forum are 4 USD. Directors/partners in the US make 300K-1M - ones here probably make 200K-500K. What salary range is good for senior industry roles.
What do you feel about comments like “ diversity/inclusion/female/Asian initiative are overrated, people should be hired and promoted based on work quality” want to hear both pro and oppose sides
Currently have 2.5 yrs of audit experience (1.5 with pwc) thinking to move to another big 4 as a senior? (Deloitte) (pwc is a bit wishy washy about my promotion timeline) or jump to industry? What roles in industry is best for career growth?
Best way to move up quickly in my position?
How’s the work/life balance and salary at the company you’re at now compared to where you’ve been previously?
Is there a studio in the dmv area where I can go get a holiday photo taken with my husband? We did a photo shoot in the summer and really don’t want a full fledged photo shoot right now. Just a couple of photos in a studio with some sort of Christmas/ holiday set up. They always show stuff like this in movies, wondering if it’s real lol
Going to Cabo in April with my husband! Looking to do more adventure travel, but also take advantage of all these Bonvoy points I have. Anyone have any recs for great properties there?
No work travel in the immediate future on current engagement. AA Platinum Pro status going to expire if I don’t get $2,000 EQD’s by year-end. Think I’ll hit ~$1,200-$1,300 with personal travel. Worth spending $700-800 more to retain status by paying for full fare first class on 1-2 of my personal trips?
