Everyone and their mama has been raving about air fryers. They said it's a healthier alternative to deep frying. Any recommendations? I want one for my holiday meals. I am currently looking at this one on Macys. https://www.macys.com/shop/product/crux-6.3-quart-digital-touchscreen-electric-air-fryer-created-for-macys?ID=11304871&pla_country=US&CAGPSPN=pla&cm_mmc=Google_SH_PLA_Cookware-_-GS_Cookware_PLA_Crux-_-293719126716-_-pg1050674350_m_kclickid__kenshoo_clickid__KID_EMPTY_1546922786_61770717587_293719126716_aud-37409341359
What happens to our vacation/holiday hours after the fiscal year ends? We don't lose them do we?!
Managers, Directors, and above, is the money worth the stress and workload? Do you find yourself not sleeping, working on the weekends, and working on vacation?
Planning to accept another job soon but have a scheduled 1 week vacation starting next week. When should I put in 2 weeks notice that I’m leaving? Is it a risk that they withdraw approval of my long-approved PTO? New job wants me to start ASAP so I’d feel bad delaying start dat over a month if the solution is to wait until after vacation to give 2weeks notice
Just wanted to say I’m in your beautiful city on vacation right now and have met the nicest people! Everyone has been so friendly and helpful with recommendations on where to go. That’s not always the case with places I have been to before. Anyways, loving it here and all the great people that live here! Shout out to y’all!!!
Has anyone successfully taken unpaid leave after short term disability? I think my doctor’s willingness to continue filling out my paperwork for STD is reaching an end but I’m having panic attacks even thinking about returning to work so I’d like to take more time off. I’m willing to take unpaid leave but not sure if broaching this with HR will just cause my company to fire me
If I put in my notice right before the holiday weekend, will they ask me to leave that day or should I just wait till we get back?
There’s a scene in the 3rd season of the west wing where josh is talking to Leo about wanting to go away on vacation to Tahiti with a woman he’s dating. Josh is reluctant to take time off, as a lot..
How is Deloitte with PTO? If I need to take a Thursday/Friday off- do they let me fly back on a Wednesday instead?
We often talk about European OOO msgs in this group, turns out there are challenges. "As costs ballooned, officials were "stunned" by the French taking a month vacation each summer." www.yahoo.com/news/budget-overruns-culture-clashes-over-121033257.html
Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode. Open to suggestions or ideas. My team is spread out internationally, so even sending a stupid “swag” gift is next to impossible.
Do you guys prefer to take breaks while staffed on an active study or wait until the study closes and schedule vacation for a week or whatever term between studies?

What can I do if my manager keeps rejecting my pto? The excuse is that “we can’t have two people out at the same time” but the manager has broken this rule so many times.
Proposal touch point near EOD. I will be PTO tomorrow and unavailable most of the evening. Does it make sense to still attend or should I just decline the invite? I’m kind of nervous saying that I’ll be unavailable for action items. First proposal so sorry for the newb question.
On PTO during CRT results time. Don't want PTO spoiled by it, good or bad. Ask partner for it so it's before I leave? Or wait until after 4th of July holiday? 🤔
For those who took time off (e.g. leave or extended time off) to take care of your mental health, how did you spend that time? What helped? What didn't? How long did you take time off for? Did you notice you got better when you came back to work?
Got my sign on bonus paid today. 46% withheld by tax. That is high! Is it because bonus is withheld at a higher tax rate regardless of what my tax bracket is?
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

Hi 👋🏻 I’m new here! For people working in big 4 risk assurance, how many clients do you generally juggle at a time and how many hours do you typically work in a week? I just started a few months ago in an IA role for a company after working in external audit. I like the work, but it’s just not a great culture fit and I’m thinking of boomeranging back to public but for IA to get more of that experience.
This might be a dumb question but when folks say max out 401k contributions, do they mean the full 19.5k per year? I usually do the 5% to get my company match.
I got an offer from ACN and wanted to negotiate. It’s 130k, but heard a data science consultant role in NYC for a PhD grad can go up to 160k-170k. Before I accept the offer, they send me the background check link and other onboarding docs. Is this ok? Have they thought I’ve accepted the offer as is?
I’m currently on PIP b/c low utilization and “Performance trends” during my first pregnancy. I’m pregnant again, I was not promoted due to PIP, does that mean I won’t be eligible for paid mat. leave?

How long did it take to get tested for COVID at citymd? Are you required to be a nyc resident? Asking because my parents are in NJ and all the test sites are unavailable and my dad is feeling a little sick. O2 is at 92.
Worth buying a home right now? I’m In the MW & breakeven on a townhome vs renting apt is ~3 yrs. Mortgage (+taxes) vs rent ~=. The caveat: can wait 1 yr where supply MIGHT catch up a little to flatten out this crazy market while interest rates still haven’t crept up to that 4-5% average. Ill have more buying power with prices POTENTIALLY decreasing and more money saved for down payment.can skip starter and go straight for forever home. Or i can buy now and take the risk of selling lower in 5 yr

I saw that Accenture is looking to hire pen testers. I know that salary isn’t listed, but what is a range I can expect? I’m just not trying to be taken advantage of and be drastically under paid like my previous employer.
