How to get more offers while on notice period? I have 1.5 months left and hardly had one other interview and HR ghosted there as well. I am looking for counter offers to increase my package.
Is there any hiring freeze or slow down due to holiday season?
Any tips and tricks to get more interview calls are appreciated.
Thoughts on unlimited PTO?
I am new to fishbowl and recently got an offer from Publicis Sapient for a senior associate. They are offering $136k with unlimited pto benefits. As I am from the industry and haven't heard about this company before, I would like some comments or thoughts about working for this company? How do they invest in their employees (like pay raise, promotions, etc)?

Just started a company in the holiday working industry, aiming at (a) offering tailored accomodations and services to remote workers in selected beautiful Italian towns and (b) empowering remote workers/locals communities, with both economic and social positive impact.
We already have ~140 hosts and first B2B customers.
What is in your opinion the best way of reaching out to companies / corporate benefits platforms out of our personal networks to accelerate B2B sales?
Pec holiday party!! Live updates!!
Unlimited PTO is not working for me.
Flexibility is great but I need a max limit of days to make sure I’m safe. Anyone having the same issues?
I have PTO to use by the end of the year, or I’ll lose it. I’m worried that it will effect my low utilization if I use it. What should I do?
Is my boss BSing me?
I work at a tech company.
After 4 years working on the same team being the only 1 designer for all design related matters, ~230 projects, directed many of them with talented artist, studios.
Approximately 60-70hrs a week. No time for vacation, always working over weekends, no holiday break (there’s no back up).
I’m still rated as junior - low level designer ;)
I was told that I’m not experienced enough because I didn’t learn from any directors.
Are you using pto hours if you’re not fully productive all day? Watching 3 kids, no childcare, shift work with wfh husband. doing the best I can but not sure how closely I should be tracking my hours
Dude 1: I only took a week off because I took a chainsaw to my leg. And even then, I came back a week before I was supposed to.
Dude 2: I had surgery on my ear where they pulled it back until it almost touched my eye. I scheduled it on Friday, because it was a holiday and came back to work on Monday when I was supposed to be off for 2 weeks. I win!
Why is disregarding medical advice and not missing work a contest?? Unfortunately, you both lose at life.....
Pretty sure PTO stands for "paid time on."
My firm is implementing an unlimited PTO policy so for those of you who’s companys already have it - do you like it, how does it work, and what is the max number of days that you would take off?
Husband ordered holiday cards and went with “Merry Christmas from the X Family.” Is it inappropriate to send something Xmas specific to colleagues? E.g., versus the neutral “happy holidays”
Does anyone ever feel like they are always waiting for their next break/pto/slow week? I’m really starting to feel the burnout these days.
Took PTO to make it a four day weekend...first few hours back today and I already feel stressed out, anxious and like I want to quit. Burn out or just advertising?
How do y’all handle balancing obligations with your personal wants during the holiday season?
I just want to enjoy the holidays at home, do self care, hobbies, enjoy the firm shutdown, etc. meanwhile SO wants to spend time with his giant extended family in the Midwest. Ugh!

How do y’all feel about networking marketing/MLM. There’s tons of companies some good some bad. But I find people’s responses hilarious. Both sides be bashing each other literally saying the same thing. 😂

Here's a small story. I come from a tier 3 city, graduated from a tier 3 college, started out at a criminally underpaid consultancy firm, worked my way up by one switch after another, learned DSA, AI, Python, MLOps along the way. It has been 7 years, today I earn 20 times what I earned at first job for the first year. In our crazy industry I am sure I am not alone, if you have a similar story, do share. Below is the chart annual earning (as per my ITR), 2022 is projected
So, I interviewed for this job that I really want and then it got put on hold. I checked back with them since it had been a month and they said it was still on hold and mentioned how it sucked because all their writers have been really busy and they needed the extra help.
I don't really know how these things work but would it make sense to offer to help them as a part time freelance copywriter? Or if the budget isn't their for that position does freelance not work either?

Trumps behavior is the quintessential example of white privilege. I can’t even imagine Obama getting away with payment to porn stars. He barely got away with attending a fiery preachers church
I’ve had, on average, 2 all nighters a week for the last 2-3 months… and I’m not sure I can take it anymore.
I have recently joined EY after having worked with two other companies. In those companies, the hikes are applicable retrospectively from the financial year beginning.
Why does EY provide the hikes only from October while it should ideally be from July?
Any memes about EPIC v Apple Trial?
I just discovered I have vision tracking issues: my eyes don’t converge together in close-up work and they don’t track together. My brain apparently handles this by ignoring the signal from one of my eyes - and alternates throughout the day which eye signal it ignores. The treatment involves vision therapy (eye exercises). Apparently getting this fixed may help with concentration issues since my brain won’t be fighting me sitting still and reading all day. Has anyone done this? Did it help?
Here we go. GSB or HBS?
