Right there with you - I feel like WFH has increased the amount of admin/non-revenue generating activity I have to do by a large margin

I didn't elaborate on the order taking but we sell several products and it's super easy to sell multiple products/the more expensive ones.

Same here... Can you transition the conversation to discover if there is any latent pain or is the process all around getting the order and rolling with it?

My MIL has made remarks to my husband that she doesn’t understand why we need a nanny for our infant since I am able to WFH (I’m a biglaw associate). She also doesn’t get why we have a cleaner and dog walker and seems to imply we’re wasting our money by outsourcing funds on things we can do. She was a SAHM so I guess I understand why she feels that way, but how do I explain to her why these things are necessary? I actually love my MIL but this is driving me nuts.

Is a firm allowed to only give you 1 month notice before they change their PTO policy - they went from 6 weeks PTO and carry over allowed to now starting in January it will be unlimited and obviously carry over would be meaningless. People had saved multiple weeks and didn’t take off in 2021 so they could take that extended time off - they are mentioning that “oh it’s discretionary now so you can take all you want” but I feel like we’re getting cheated and they should have to pay us out balance

I hope everyone at EY will book vacation in November/December to use the accrued hours they EARNED. This PTO thing really is a shame, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the other B4 follow suit. The one thing we all have in common is leadership finding creative ways to screw over employees.
