What's your dream travel destination? Anyone traveling this summer or are you enjoying a lovely staycation?
When you’re comparing offers how you put a value against benefits like vacation allowance? Just calculate the value of a paid day as a % of base?
Anyone got their H1B stamped in Lisbon? How many days after the interview was your passport made available for pickup ? On the website right now it says 5 business days.
My start date is in less than two weeks but my international criminality check is still pending (4 weeks and counting). Will they let me join the firm while the security company runs this in the background? I have proof of no criminal record for 3 out of 4 countries where I worked and lived in. The 4th country is Hong Kong and request of no criminal conviction can only be made when applying for a work visa there.
Probably not suited for this bowl, anyone on H1B travelled to India from US recently? Does the ban conditions apply while re-entering if you alread have stamped visa? TIA

How does a person not get tired of public accounting always wanting more, more, more? Can’t even take a day of vacation and feel good about it. It’s a double edged sword for me because I’m very driven and career focused but damn this is always killing my vibe.

Starting a project next week after a long holiday break, I need to learn how to be a working professional again 😂
I’m sure this has been asked before—but how do you get through work when going through a breakup with a long term SO? I have a new male boss & cant really tell him what’s going on. I’ve been taking PTO scattered. I live alone and NYC Covid winter alone is already feeling so overwhelmingly sad and lonely on top of everything else.

Cannot think of a better day to take a PTO

I might actually work for the worst partner in BigLaw. Literally tries to crush my soul. And I’m not sure why, I always try to over deliver. I was planning on leaving for another firm but Covid happened. I feel stuck and helpless, but I’m thankful that I still have income. This isn’t a question, just a statement and cry for help.

A lead on my team mentioned she is pregnant and she hasn’t made the news public and just informing me as a friend. we go live in summer, she won’t be due until fall but I feel project might need back up given the crazy hours in go live, should I inform SM or PPMD in confidence and look for an additional member?

I am planning to travel to India during last week of dec . The best flight I am able to get right now is delta which is connecting through Paris . Anyone travelled the same recently ? Should I consider it ? I am on h1 and have my stamping done already .
*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid). I shared my target salary /lateral move & at the negotiation point, they came up slightly by way of qtrly bonus structure but also outlined path for growth incl. expected salary increases at said points. Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??
