Hi…question for CVS workers, how many days of pto a new employee usually gets? Thank you
Is it unethical as realtors working in an office to block chunks of time off for personal reasons? Some of my coworkers stay in their desks for up to 10 hours, but I've taken up the habit of blocking at least 1 hour daily for lunch, breaks, and other issues that may arise. Do you do this as well or do you prefer to work straight through your day?
Recent law grad here, looking for a firm job. Can others share what I should be looking for in a compensation package nowadays? What's typical and what's not? (e.g. 401k match, health/dental/vision, paid time off, vacation). And how does that change based on: small firm, midsize firm, big firm? Thanks in advance!
Any litigation paralegals here?
If you’ve ever had to do a doc review exercise with time pressure, did you get paid overtime or were you just expected to do extra hours?
My firm keeps putting pressure on us to do more hours but giving nothing in exchange! (No overtime pay nor extra time off).
How should I bring up that I’d be happy to do overtime hours only if they pay?
Is it normal to feel numb around the holidays? I'm tired, dealing with seasonal affective disorder and a really tough caseload right now. Not in the holiday spirit at all and honestly don't even want to be, I just want to spend the weekend resting. Is it bad that I don't care about it at all this year?
Will the optional holiday be auto approved or do I need to get it approved by my manager?
New joinee here
29 - single since 3L year. After spending a few years working on myself, I’m re-committing to dating. But ppl with “normal” jobs have apparently decided to only do 1st dates on weeknights? Bc weekends sacrifice their “quality” time? I work til 11 every night and would literally have to find coverage/take time off to pull off a weeknight date. How are single folks working big law hours making time? Every other associate in my group is married to ppl they met pre-work.
Do they decorate for the holidays where you work? I work at a pretty large hospital and they do the eaves and the trees outside, but I'm thinking of making some paper snowflakes and maybe getting a mini tree for the nurses station. Good idea? I don't want to offend anyone just thought it could bring some holiday cheer as corny as that is.
Hello! I’m based in NYC and looking for my next role. I work in the digital strategy/brand strategy space. I have experience across multiple industries (tech/telecom/Pharma (dermatology)/beauty and skin care and I am looking for a Director or VP role (my last job was a VP). I would like to keep my base of at least $180k (is this reasonable if I look for Director positions too?) Would love to land something soon before we hit the holiday season. Do you think what I am looking for is reasonable?
When do our vacation days reset? 10/1 or 1/1?
Out of curiosity what are some perks/benefits offered at your company that you are happy with or would like to be implemented? Could be anything (i.e better vacation time, 401k matching, company outings, free food)
Hi! Would love to receive some input from fellow professionals. I recently received two job offers:
1. Marketing Specialist $60K + $3K sign on bonus, amazing company benefits, flex time off, remote position, great people thus far (starting was $55K for this role) TX
2. Marketing Specialist $67.5K with above average company benefits, accrued hours, in office 3x week, so far people seem nice (starting was $65K) IL
I love the idea of more money but is that always the way to go?? Help please!
COVID policy for interns. How are you handling? Paid time off? Case-by-case? Are you sharing a specific policy (yes, I know it differs state-to-state)?
Which job would you choose given the two choices right now?
- VP at JPMC
- high performance, specialized IC role
- ~205k TC
- 4-week vacation and tons of benefits
- Back office role 35-40 hrs a week
- lots of learning opportunities
- smart, competent coworkers
- chill boss, who is empowering and giving a lot of autonomy
- way too many VPs to compete with, will not be easy to get to ED
- Could be more exit/external opportunities at ED level in 3-5 years

Had the craziest experience today at 1st ultrasound. Measured 6w5d (what I should be based on FET) but sonographer told me HR was 87 (low). I was hysterical (had a previous MMC after an initial low HR) and doctor came in and rescanned and said everything looked perfect and HR was 119 BPM! I am trying so hard to take comfort in the second scan but this is so stressful. Please send positive vibes my way 😭😭

For the first time in my entire professional career, not only has my company not bothered to look at a calendar when planning things, but they scheduled a major meeting *on* Yom Kippur. Uhhh...I've worked a bunch of places and this has never been an issue. Lack of foresight or genuine not giving a shit about employees? (Not talking Sukkot here, but Major High Holyday that even the most non-observant acknowledge because Day of Atonement, you know?) Anyone else?
Holidays are coming up. Need to make sure I put in for the days! And then remind all the gentiles fifty times not to schedule important meetings those days

How was everyone’s Pesach? I went to an Orthodox seder at my rabbi’s home on night one that was surprisingly really fun, and then hosted a humanist (non-religious) seder at my home. It was a good mix!

Declined and scrambling to find coverage for it
Have an easy fast
Did you make them reschedule, will you be declining or were you forced to attend?
