We risk exposure and bringing it home to our families every time we walk into work, yet are limited to time off work without penalty. What's your sick leave policy?
When it takes you two weeks of working to catch up from one week of vacation...seems like it should be the other way around ☠️
Any Dubai recs? I'm thinking about braving the August desert heat and taking a spontaneous vacation.
Is MLK Day not a holiday for some firms?
What is the salary day of your company? Mine is 24th of every month(if it’s a holiday then the work day before it) and could see nothing left in account by 1st lol😂
"Who was your plus-one to that previous company event? Bring them to the holiday party!" "Yeah I'd love to but we actually stopped seeing eac--" "Anyway can't wait to see them at the holiday party!"
I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
Got an offer from the government and they are asking me to complete the pre-employment requirements. Start date will be established after we find out that I meet those equipments. I want to negotiate the step and vacation time. Do I negotiate before or after completing those pre-employment requirements? Also any tip on how to negotiate is appreciated!
Our nanny is taking vacation soon and my mom is watching our 2 kids. A friend’s nanny offered to drive our oldest to/from preschool and watch her over lunch so that my mom isn’t racing around (cont)
Monday and not even noon and I am so exhausted I just want to lie down. Toddler woke me up at two am and I basically couldn’t fall back asleep after that because I was so stressed about the week. MDP came back from a week of vacation and had a bunch of things he didn’t like and chewed me out about this morning. I just feel super over it all. Hard to imagine continuing in this business. Those who have left for corporate work do you find it less stressful, more sustainable?
Does anyone else feel as though they ought to either (1) quit your job or (2) cry when senior folks in your department boast somehow (or complain) they’ve not taken a week+ long vacation in two years?
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.
Project leadership is telling teams that they need to fly in the week of thanksgiving and possible Christmas as well. The assumption is that we fly home the day prior to the actual holiday. 😂
Lots of PTO to burn thru before the end of the year. Think my manager will mind if I take PTO every Monday, fly in Tuesday and then leave Thursday? 🤣
Has anyone here ever not negotiated for a higher salary when given an offer? Looking at one that is 25% higher than my current salary and I'm pretty happy about it but I always hear to always negotiate for more.
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
Anyone can tell me about BDO tax experienced senior role in Norfolk Va? Consider moving to the area.
Has anyone here had a breakthrough Covid case who also received the Moderna vaccine? Anecdotally - went to a small wedding last weekend and a TON of the guests are testing positive for Covid now. Everyone at my table has symptoms or a positive test at this point - except me. I had a negative test and got moderna. They all received Pfizer. Other guests at different tables are seeing the same thing, including married couples with different vaccinations.
I’m frustrated that I’m always expected to do everything for our LO since I’m working from home. Five days a week, I do all the drop offs and pickups. When the baby is napping, I prep all her bottles and solids to pack with for daycare. Today, on top of everything else I had to take our dog to the vet. My husband hasn’t even offered to do anything because it’s easier for me to do it.
Any new parents, did you decide to circumcise your baby boy? Why and why not? I am conflicted, It’s not required in my culture , No one in my family had done it but looking at some benefits I am not sure if I should get it done for my newborn.

For Google, how is the Global Solutions ladder (Global Product Lead role) compared to a Strategy and Operations role / ladder in terms of compensation and exit opportunities? I’d like to figure out which one to apply to, both seem to fit well with consultant skill sets.
For a strategy-esque (non-PM) career trajectory in FAANG/tech, what’s the comp trajectory look like? Can one ever reach MBB partner-like comp? MBB’s pay trajectory is too good to leave, but maybe I’m being naive

Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
