Need advice on pet issue…have a 15 y/o Morkie and 7 y/o Yorkie…both female and spayed about 5lbs each. Have had the older dog from a pup and rescued the Yorkie about 5 yrs ago. Took a year (and me to go on a 2 week vacation and left them with my husband) for them to co-exist without killing each other. Yorkie is on Prozac after behavioral therapy at Penn…she has a lot of jealous issues but I don’t think the Prozac does much. They would have maybe 1 fight/mo
How long does it usually take to hear back about an EY TAS interview? Interviewed last Monday night and sent the interviewer a thank you Tuesday. He said the talent team will be in touch shortly. I do know it was a holiday weekend though.

How much PTO do you typically take in a year? I've only been taking about 1.5-2 weeks and I'm starting to feel burnt out, but it doesn't seem like anyone on my team takes more!
The owners of our company like to do a holiday handout at Thanksgiving each year. They used to do a whole Thanksgiving meal (turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, pie). Last year there was a lack of available turkeys in the quantity we needed, so we switched it up and did a bottle of sparkling cider with a $25 gift card. This year the owners want to do something different but they are not sure what. Does anyone have any suggestions? We have about 300 employees in one location. Thanks!!

I'm in the process of applying to senior-level digital advertising jobs in San Diego and could use some help. I've been in higher-ed marketing for 10 years.
Partners in my practice group recently communicated that we (non-partners) are not supposed to take vacation days unless they are in large blocks. This is presumably to avoid having us be unavailable on Fridays/Mondays where we take long weekends. Am I crazy for thinking that is totally ridiculous? Obviously coverage is easier to obtain for larger blocks but this unofficial “policy” seems extreme.
This is our first holiday season in the Nashville area, any suggestions on family activities/light displays we should check out? Our kids our 8, 5, and 3.
My SO and I have been together for almost two years and his brother is getting married in a few months. His brother’s fiancée is hosting several events for the wedding party and their SOs on the Friday before the wedding and has invited me. I will be starting a new job around that time and do not want to take time off to attend these events that are during the day (10 am - 7 pm)… is it rude to decline? Would you be offended?
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

Hey everyone! I need some advice. I’ve accepted an offer for a new job, but I’m in a bit of a rush to get out of the position I’m working right now. I start the new job July 18. My job now doesn’t care about their employees, and it’s a health risk for my family and I due to unsafe COVID policies (i.e. forcing you to come in even if you’re sick, making you use PTO for COVID even if working from home, etc). Is there anything short term I can do until July? Or should I stay until then?

Urgent question, if anyone knows the answer. I found out a petition I filed is being rejected due to incorrect filing fee, but I haven’t received the rejection package yet.

So I am a W-2 salaried CFP at a small IRA and I have a neighbor who runs his own practice and asked if I knew anyone who would be looking for part time paraplanning work. After thinking about it I got to wondering if its compliant and okay for an advisor to do something like that on the side for extra income or would that be considered a conflict on interest as an OBA?
