I need some time off, but I’ve been applying for other jobs. When should I let the firm know? After the offer?
Having a hard time justifying wanting time off for mental health reasons while others on my team are full time parenting & teaching their children in addition to working. Anyone else?
I had some major life events this year for which I had to take a large chunk of time off, and with half the year already gone, I’m getting worried about making the hours for my bonus. Is it always an “all or nothing” or do firms give prorated bonuses in certain situations?
How much should I charge a friend to watch 4 dogs at their home over Christmas weekend (2 nights)? The dogs don't have any special needs or medications. I've dog sat for other people in the past but always for free. I also have had dogs of my own for most of my life. I want to start charging people for my services but also want to be reasonable since this is a friend and don't plan to charge a holiday fee. We live in St. Louis. Would $40 per day/night be reasonable?
hi all, hope all is well
i left deloitte risk advisory due to personal reasons in sep 2021 (time off since july 2021) as the work got a bit much and my situation at home was complex.
i applied for a snr consultant role in consulting (strategy & ops, indus. redesign & innov.) and saw my app. got shortlisted. this role looks more suited for me and im super interested in it, more so than my prev. exp at D but you never know haha. whats the process like/how likely will i progress?
Please clarify for me. I say if the salary for the position is $52,000, that's what you include when posting the job opening. Ie: Marketing Assistant: $52K. My supervisor says no, the salary is actually 74,000, because she's including health benefits and PTO on top of the 52.. I said if you post 74,000 and the person finds out it's actually 52 (probably with a take home pay of only 38) they will walk. Who's right?
Why does it seem that no holiday regardless of length or location seems to be enough to rejuvenate, rest and recover?! Send tips…
Anyone taken bereavement for a miscarriage? It’s not our first but this one is hitting me abnormally hard. I know I can use PTO but it feels wrong to do PTO when grieving time is needed.
I completed my final Google PM interviews 5 weeks ago, and followed up the recruiter at the end of week 4 (no response yet).
Any suggestions on hearing any feedback or an offer? I’m hoping no news is good news at this point?? 😂
I know the thanksgiving holiday may have delayed, but seems to be taking a while?
Has anyone considered making the move to the corporate world? I work in admin for my nonprofit right now so I make a decent amount (53k) my benefits are unbeatable. PTO & sick time PLUS self care days. Flexibility. Etc. the one thing we’re lacking is structure and honestly im burnt out and overwhelmed with my work load and I know I could be getting paid around 10-15k more for similar work. Anyone gone to corporate and regretted it? Loved it?
How long after you ETS’d did you go to work?
Thinking of taking of 6-12 months before going into the work force.
For context: getting out at 12 years, been special operations for 10 of those years, 7 deployments; 3young kids who I’ve missed a lot of their lives already; have more than enough savings to sustain a 12 month break in between ETS & new job; would be finishing a masters in that time off as well.
What does this look like from the employer perspective? Other factors I overlooked?
Are any of you being treated differently by friends and family because you’re taking care of positive and PUI Covid patients? I almost feel like it’s a crime bring an RN right now. No one will come near me. All my family that lives out of state cancelled my summer vacation trips to come see them. The family that lives close by me won’t let me In their houses. I’m feeling so alone and very isolated.
I asked 3 of my higher ups to write me letters of recommendation a month ago when I put in my resignation. I went on PTO for a couple weeks & followed up with my manager today. He told me “actually I was told we aren’t allowed to write them for you. Sorry.”
I asked why and he just shrugged and continued the conversation...
Has anyone heard of anything like this? Bosses “not being allowed” to write LORs for exiting employees? I’m leaving on my own terms & good standing.
Long holiday weekends remind me how disconnected from home-city friends consulting (travel) has made me. This is more of a negative than the long hours. Anyone else feel similarly? 😕
What’s the lowest I can put down for a second home/mortgage? I plan on renting out my condo and buying a second home to live in. Can I finance it as a vacation/second home?
I had an interview with aws for a marketing role. Is it true that they offer 10 days PTO for your first year?? How is this possible?
What is the most important part of the compensation package to you besides base pay and why? Is it bonus, 401k match/vesting, PTO, Paternity/Maternity leave, healthcare, etc?

Hi all, need some help here. Very new to stock/tech industry (not google but not sure where else i can ask): I will be joining tech in a few weeks time and wanted to know how do we calculate average monthly stocks.
I will join in mid June and they will grant (not vest) me the stocks units based on the average price in May. I know I can calculate one by one by adding all the May stock closing price and average it out, but is there a quicker tool to do this / website that shows this?
Has anyone taken Humira to treat HS? Or in general? Any bad side effects you’ve experienced?
I hate how Twitter is now immediately loading ads at the very top of the TL.
I don’t mind scrolling through when ads are mixed in, but it doesn’t even feel like I’m opening Twitter anymore. It’s just like opening an ad. Makes me want to close out before I even start scrolling.
Hi all moms. I am pregnant, 20 weeks and wanted to know until which week are we allowed to travel based on pwc travel policy. Thanks.

Hey - currently an investment banking analyst looking for a referral to a cool role I’m interested in at Yahoo. Thanks in advance
Why. Why. Why. Do people set deadlines against themselves. And then blow them?!!!?! If the client didn't insist on you doing something "this morning," why volunteer it only to blow right past it??? Just say you'll do it today!
I’m 27 & going to go to back to college for my bachelors. I have worked in the legal field for about 8 years & I’m burnt out. After a lot of research an thought I am leaning towards either architecture or interior design. I wanted to ask some advice from anyone working as an architect or interior designer. How do you feel about the field? What are the stress levels like? Do you enjoy it? Are you working at firm or are you working independently? Any info helps! Thanks 😊
I was promised a promotion by my manager for this Q1 after much discussion and delay. That manager has since left the agency. Current manager has my performance reviews and told me that based on the mess the previous manager left behind, their word doesn’t mean much and that their own standards are higher and I’m not ready. While there’s some truth to this, how should I approach this? I also have an higher offer, same title, that I don’t intend to take.
In which region should I get transfer?
EMEIA is toxic I have been part of it. And it's literally screwing my mind.

Salaam. Does getting married make loneliness go away?
Whenever I talk about being lonely or bored, family says it’s time for me to get married, that will solve everything. I don’t believe that. For context, I am a Indian M, 30.
Is bank interest riba?
I have been researching into this these days and there is literature that shares how lending worked in pre-Islamic Arabia. When the time to pay back a loan came, the lender would ask "would you pay or will you increase?" And that increase was usually doubling the loan. Subsequently ever year the loan wasn't paid it was doubled from the previous year.
Anyone else experience this? On Muzmatch/minder, you match with a nice girl. Conversations go great for a few days. Once they find out you’re brought up outside US, you’re ghosted! This is pretty sad

For clients in industries you do not agree with, what do you normally do in the situation? I'd like to hear perspectives from Muslim of all levels to see your opinions. Example from my side - made my intent clear early on that I wanted to avoid working with an alcoholic beverage client and wasn't staffed on the project.
So I finally found time to have a haircut today but I can’t stop thinking about how a woman cut my hair. As a Muslim male, is it ok to have a non-mahram woman cut my hair? What do you guys think?
