My company will be doing holiday party this year! It’s been three years since I went to a legit holiday party 🤣 I have been spoiled by past parties at the wardolf Astoria or tavern on the green and my last employer had really bad parties - think crappy dinner at a chain restaurant or white elephant exchange in the office. I am not making sense …
First freelancing gig going into the holidays... If the agency decides to close for the week btwn Xmas and NYE, are we just screwed out of being paid for days that aren’t on the official holiday cal?

I have working at the same brokerage firm for the last 27 years. I make $27 per hour with no annual bonus and I was just told I get no paid time of or sick leave. The “manager” was giving me 5 days of PTO to be “nice”. I have a series 7 and 63. Been licensed since 2000. Work 6 hours a day, which, btw, is only one hour less than the firm is open. Am I being swindled??

Going back to work on Monday and I really want to quit and take time off. I feel burnt out and not interested in doing advertising/design anymore. Even after a long Xmas/NY break, I feel refreshed mentally but know that within a week or two I'll be drained again. Has anyone ever quit to take time off or taken a low stress/casual job elsewhere to reset their brain?
SC brings up another point, do you let your team and supervisors know you are in recovery? I have always lived by the adage I may be the only Big Book anyone sees, so I always let my co-workers and management know I'm in recovery. I'm also a DCM so it helps book time off to go to Area Assemblies.

Especially interested in those at big four where the incentive already includes the cost of study materials, four exam fees, application fee, and a $5000/$3000 bonus if passed in 1 or 2 years from joining.
Bigger bonus (name your price)? Greater position on the team? More PTO? Exam fee forgiveness if you fail an exam? Etc?
