Merry Christmas for all those who believe in the reason for the season. Happy Holidays to all those who use this time to spend a holiday with our most precious, family, friends, fur babies and just taking care of yourself. The only thing you can control.
How many days of PTO does each of big 4 has? For some reason I thought all big 4 has unlimited PTO policy just to shake off the huge liabilities on their books, but apparently I was wrong based on my potential offer with one of them.
Having to cancel a PTO doesn't feel good!!
I need to go to India for a week but don’t want to take the PTO, so can I work from India or it is not allowed?
Anyone actually have any success managing time off for mental health at their firm? I’ve been working for about a year and a half and the hours and demands have been heavy, but manageable. The exhaustion and burnout of learning how to be a lawyer in the isolation of an apartment during the pandemic is finally catching up. There’s also layers of other personal issues. I don’t want my team to think less of me if I speak up but I’m really at a personal low. Would appreciate hearing about others
Got an offer from Deloitte for SC for a few thousand more than what I asked for. I would like a signing bonus, what are some ways to ask for that? PTO & 401k aren’t as great as what I have now.

What are ways to get more vacation time?
I’m feeling a little suffocated with the standard two weeks with all my family events this year.
I’m a JR, so it might be a dumb questions. My company has a separate amount of days for vacation and personal/sick. Am I allowed to use my personal/sick for mental health days?

I have a start date for my new job in two weeks, and I know I’ve passed all pre-boarding requirements. Still haven’t received onboarding paperwork/details. When does that typically get sent out? In my experience, it’s been pretty immediate upon completion of required tests and checks. Just curious to hear how others in HR handle this.
My firm has asked me to transition to a completely different practice because of the needs of the firm and volume of work. Any advice? Hours will be more and expectations greater.

I’m about to get my level 1 NDT Certifications very soon hopefully. I’ve also been seeing all these jobs like Target and Lyft Drivers making up to $28/hour, all while I’m only making $25/hour at my current state. What do you guys earn as NDT Techs? Or what do you guys think my title should be valued at?
Tested positive, what should I do?
But why is the number of cases rising if we’re properly quarantining? Is it that we aren’t? Or were they going to inevitably rise?
About to watch Mare of Easttown. The Covid shows are few and this is a good one. I am also loving the accents. I live in Baltimore and hearing a British woman and her fellow actors do American East Coast accents is giving me life.

I hate interviewing. Hate hate hate it. Absolutely despise the process, the questions, the anxiety, the need to find ways to communicate the value I bring daily.
Why can't we go back to the good old days? Where you joined a company and retired there with a nice pension. WTF is wrong with the world that we decided to take a perfectly nice thing, and ruin it with instability, anxiety and stress in the persuit of maybe more money but at higher tax?
Uhh. Bring back the 50s.
