My PTO was approved for the Thanksgiving & Christmas weeks but I’m totally clueless about the vacation spot given the pandemic situation. Requesting your recommendations. Warm places preferably! Thinking of Hawaii/Keywest
I started last October as a junior (moved over after 3 years in B4 accounting). Have worked nearly every day since then except for the occasional Sunday when I decided to blow off work I probably should have been doing. I desperately need a vacation, but have no clue what that even looks like with Covid, WFH, and Biglaw life in general. It also feels super hard to take a break because it seems like no one in my group ever does. Not sure whether I'm posting to gripe or seeking advice...
Do people manage to use vacation homes with school age children, or just rent them out most of the year?
Hi Rachel! Holiday question - How should I balance my personal “wants” vs. family obligations during the holidays? I am exhausted, want to stay home and rest, do my hobbies, while SO wants to fly to the Midwest to spend time with his large extended family. I would like to set expectations but am unsure how to approach the conversation.
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.
Question for the ladies: what is an appropriate dress for firm holiday parties? I'm naturally curvy so most dresses look like they come with an HR complaint on me. Lol help!

Ive been on high intensity projects since June of 2020 and I am so grateful but I am exhausted....I need time off, but my current team seems really intense and doesn’t take well to people taking off. What can I do?
EY what’s the catch with unlimited PTO? Is it actually unlimited? Recent hire and just trying to figure out PTO for the holidays
Never have I been able to charge more than 40 hrs on any project I have done (though I was expected to work more). Every day of bench and pto hurts my utilization 😭
When did you stop traveling and stay put in your home town?? Assuming things are normal by spring my family has a vacation planned in early may, I’m due in June. I’ll check and consult with dr too 🙂
My wife has had complications with her pregnancy recently, so I've been taking advantage of my unlimited PTO to stay at the hospital. My boss has begun complaining that it's been too frequent and the team needs me. How do I balance being there for my wife and my team?
My dad is in his 80s and just had a stroke. He is in the hospital getting better one day and worse the next. My job has been really understanding and are giving me time off, but I recently started there and don’t want to feel like I’m taking too much time off. Between my brother and I, we take turns going to the hospital, but he seems to be taking less responsibilities knowing that I am here to talk to doctors and be there for dad. I also have my own family and my husband is a little frustrated
Is there an ideal time of year to leave a job? I left my last job in May and it totally screwed up that summer because I couldn’t really take a whole bunch of PTO. Now I know I’m going to leave sometime this year and don’t want a repeat of last time, but not sure I can make it another 6 months.
If company offers unlimited PTO, what else beside salary can you negotiate on an offer? Benefit package is standard (health insurance) and they do not offer 401k matching yet.
My contract has 4 week notice for leaving the job, and the new job I’m about to accept would like me to start asap (and so would I). How shitty is it to do 4 week notice with 2 of those being vacation? Wouldn’t want to burn a bridge but 4 weeks, jeez.

Hi FB! I’m looking to fill a Sr. Account Director role. It’s a boutique agency based in NYC, but remote is ok as we’re all remote at the moment. Luxury car experience is a plus!! Please DM me if you’re interested or know anyone who might be!
I’ve been off my last billable project for about a month, but my firm has had me putting in full days to work on important internal initiatives and business development that are being taken very seriously, and that include deadlines, etc. very similar to the work I’d do while on a project. Is it likely I’ll be laid off if this continues for another couple of months? How long do you think my firm might let me stay employed like this if they continue to have this much non-billable work for me?

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!
