My first year of travelling and I’m thinking of getting small holiday gifts for the hotel/lounge staff that help me each week. Would that be weird?
My dad is in his 80s and just had a stroke. He is in the hospital getting better one day and worse the next. My job has been really understanding and are giving me time off, but I recently started there and don’t want to feel like I’m taking too much time off. Between my brother and I, we take turns going to the hospital, but he seems to be taking less responsibilities knowing that I am here to talk to doctors and be there for dad. I also have my own family and my husband is a little frustrated
Question for the ladies: what is an appropriate dress for firm holiday parties? I'm naturally curvy so most dresses look like they come with an HR complaint on me. Lol help!
We have an AMAZING nanny - we adore her and she is so great with our child. We are just using her for 6 months while we wait for our daughter to get into a nursery program. We didn’t talk about this up front - but, typically, what do you do in these situations for vacation/holidays? If she goes on vacation, do we still pay her for those days? If we go on vacation, do we still pay her for those days (supposing we give plenty of heads up)?
Hi, any recommendations for family vacation which is less than 10-12 hours drive from Dallas?
EY needs to revisit their “unlimited” PTO policy! Even new job postings have been edited to reflect the new term “flexible” time off. Do you equate this to stack ranking during the performance review cycle? Positioning teams and peers against each other due to pressure not to take time off unless on the bench which you can’t exactly plan or predict.
Do you holiday tip Hotel Lounge staff? Very nice, attentive etc... Stayed at the same hotel the full year and wondering how much would a good amount be.
Taking a week long PTO next month. How acceptable is completely unplugging? They all say "completely sign off". But folks generally don't. Help!

Banks have been expanding parental leave policies with some offering the same amount of time to both primary and secondary parents. Do you think your company provides sufficient time off? Most importantly, would you be willing to take the full amount of time - without fearing repercussions?
Do you holiday tip your building staff? We rent in a condo building in SF and have doormen (~4-5) and other staff (~3-4) that are employed by the building. What’s an appropriate holiday tip for each?
This may be odd, but I really suck at throwing out birthday cards, wedding invites, holiday cards from friends. I feel like one day I'll want to read them again. Any tips on storing/organizing these?
How do you get over/prevent burnout? I can’t even take one day of PTO without feeling like I’m letting my whole team down. Even when I’m not technically assigned to something. I am having such a hard time being productive because I haven’t stopped in 4+ months. Help ☹️
Market Prediction: Holiday Cards are going to be bought and sent in droves this Holiday Season. Photograph services like Shutterfly, etc. are going to see surges of families uploading photos to cards. It’s going to be a USPS Christmas 🎄
In your opinion, is it better to use all PTO when possible, or roll some over? I know people who swear by both
Created a design app prototype that’s meant to be a holiday virtual card for my girlfriend who I haven’t seen in a couple weeks since the recent covid spike. Anyone care to user test it before I send the link to her?
Anyone had a firm do a background check done using RAI? It’s been over a week and I haven’t heard anything. I’m surprised it’s taking this long because there’s nothing in my background that would raise any issues.
Does anyone want 2016 APICS CSCP exam materials? Totally free, asking for the shipping cost tho. They haven’t been used, someone gave me their version and I used those to study
Losing focus and desire to work today. Is it because it’s Monday or because it’s week 8 working remote? 🤷♀️
For those who left big law - is there such a thing as a 9-5 legal job? Doesn’t have to pay nearly close to big law salary, as long as I’m free to have dinner with my family and watch my kid grow up. No hate, please - I know big law is not for everyone and it’s definitely not for me. For context, I have no debt and I’m about to have my first child. I’m a 4th year corporate associate.
Is it possible to breastfeed only if you get a baby nurse? I am due in December and contemplating getting a baby nurse, but want to know if baby nurses make more sense if you’re pumping or giving formula.

Being the only expert around? Hey everyone, I’m looking to head in-house in the next 12 months, but I work in a specialized area with v few openings. I just noticed a job posting for a senior counsel role at a startup. This would be my first in-house role so I was wondering if anyone could speak to their experience as the only expert/specialist in their area at a company? Recognize it’s a massive growth opportunity but also scared of the big jump in responsibility/no safety net.
Just had a mental breakdown about work. I’m incapacitated mentally. I know some people are advising against quitting without a job lined up, but I can’t sleep, exercise, really be happy at all because of anxiety about work (this is the first time happening to me with 4yoe). How screwed am I if I do this? At a startup consulting company for context- 3 YoE at big 4 and other big consulting company
I completed my final round of interviews with my #1 opportunity the other day. Today the recruiter called to confirm my interest, comp expectations, availability to work hybrid, etc and said he would play back to the HM and revert early next week. Does this mean they're going to make me an offer?
Not having my career outlook until mid July. Is there anyway to find out my compensation before hand given they go into effect today
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Hi fishes, I have cleared all interviews 2 weeks back and uploaded documents in portal. How long does Accenture take to release an offer?

I’ve added a BBDO ECD on LinkedIn and send him email asking him to see my work. Never replied or accepted my LinkedIn invitation. Now that he got laid off, he accepted my invitation to connect. 🤔
