Technically unassigned this week, but ended up working from home on random shit I needed to finish or start; how to tell boss I want Friday off? just don't turn on computer? PTO maxed
Deloitte - Do you have Fourth of July week off? About to accept my offer and have PTO planned.
How is the proposed tax holiday going to work? You don't pay taxes now but owe it by April 15 2021?
Deloitte my S&A offer has 23 vacation days. Will I actually be able to use any of that? Does it count against my utilization? What’s the cultural expectation around using PTO?
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
I got horribly bitten by mosquitoes during the holiday weekend. Though the scars from those bites on my face have lightened since then they are still pretty visible. Any recommendations for something that would help fade them faster?
Anyone have experience using MS Teams chat over Southwest in-flight Wi-Fi? Not planning on being “that person” attending a meeting on a plane, just responding to any MS Teams chats that come my way so I don’t have to take PTO.
What’s worse? One week notice or two week notice then go on vacation for those last two weeks??
Any recommendations for where to stay and things to do in New England in early Oct? Looking for a couples getaway type of vacation
Looking for vacation spots using points. Where would I get the best bang for Marriott points. I’ve heard Thailand has some great resorts from Marriott. Any others spots around the world?
Does anyone here use Evolve to manager their vacation rental? If so, how is your experience using them.
What’s the “last straw” that prompted you to start looking for other jobs? I’ll start - I put in my vacation for this entire week, more than a month ago. It was on the team calendar and people were made aware. Friday of last week, my manager says “hey I’m taking 3 weeks off so I’ll need you to cover for me next week. Youre the only one that knows this platform. You’re working right?”
What I think on holiday weekend Mondays: "it's the least wonderful time of the year." Good luck, comrades!
A resource I'm overseeing is ghosting PTO hours - i.e. not charging any for half days or lumping in 45 hours for M-Th with 0 hours on Friday. Is this something you'd escalate to management?
Anyone from Databricks Professional services? Looking for info around hierarchy, WLB & total comp.
This is my life. I haven’t stepped back (partly because I don’t want to lose the autonomy and independence making a good salary gives me) but man I feel the rub so much more than my husband does. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/26/upshot/women-long-hours-greedy-professions.html
Who is responsible for putting out all these "Welcome back America" ads? Is every media department unaware or ignorant to the country setting new records for new single-day increases in COVID cases?? Am I going insane???
I need to find a job asap as I was let go and on a Visa. Any recommendations what firms to look at? Have exhausted my leads. M&A Tech is my background
For every 10 PI cases you have handled over the years, how many were cases where you actually helped somebody (client wouldn’t have gotten the result without a lawyer) versus how many just added attorney’s fees and medical treatment that the client probably didn’t really need or didn’t really benefit from (just more expenses in their settlement award)?
Are you more or less healthy now than pre-COVID?
Anyone have any insights into KPMG's life sciences practice? Vision? Growth? Culture? Type of work? Work ethic? WLB? Perception among life sciences companies?
Anyone know anything about Room 214 agency in Boulder? A buddy is interviewing there - is it a good place to work?
Any advice?: Just finished long term W2 freelance role (since Jan) + I also have a small 1099 side project that‘ll be finishing up in 2ish wks. If we are talking >10k on 1099 (i.e. not enough to justify filing for SCorp) + <160-200k on W2 — is there any real tax advantage of opening LLC vs paying me directly outside of the “protects personal assets if ever sued”, etc? Technically I *could* open LLC quickly b4 invoicing- but dunno if worth $ to do so for such small amount of 1099 coming in?
🐟 family, need some suggestions. Wife got offer from PWC (new team; technology focus; 0%-20% travel role) to join San Jose or Chicago office. We are currently in Seattle. What say you??
Tough spot where I am grateful I got a role that I know a lot of people would want but am wondering if i could do any better if that makes sense.
We have HHI of 260k excluding bonus. Currently own a house (current value is 440k) with 45% mortgage remaining. Planning to buy a new house of 500k. Combined mortgage of both house would be approx 4.7k per month. We both max out 401k and I normally invest 25k via megadoor roth + 2 529s for both kids. Q is Can I afford new house or should I sell current buy and book the profit since realty mkt is so high and our house has the max value currently?
Does anyone have a comprehensive timeline of how layoffs happened in 08? Lots of firms seem to promise no layoffs just like they did in 08.
Can someone who has done the research let me know what supplements are worth it (if any)? My general understanding is vitamins are not proven to change basically anything unless you have a real deficiency and are best obtained through diet. Is there anything else that has proven benefits? Thinking of upping my morning smoothie game, would love tips.
Poll: IPad Pro 11” vs IPad Pro12.9” Why: Because I have Best Buy points I need to use in 2 days. How many: $500 equivalent. Use: Just traveling, reading, etc. have a MacBook Pro, so definitely nota supplement to a laptop. Commenters: “you can buy something other than iPad”. Yes, I can but I have most electronic gadgets I need and I rent, so no big appliances. But open to suggestions if there’s something very out of the ordinary from Best Buy. Thank you in advance :)
Wow interviewing sucks, felt so good about one role and got to the last stage and the person interviewing me was completely lifeless and we did not connect at all. Great end to my week 🥲
