Been on vacation for 3 weeks now and was just assigned to a project for when I get back. Had to log in to sign background checks but completely forgot my password since it's been so long...
Do you guys truly disconnect on vacations? Is it frowned upon? I have a vacation next week but feel like the expectation is for me to be available
So.. my husband and I live across the country from my family, including my young nieces. We haven’t seen them since before COVID and are not seeing anyone inside who is not vaccinated in our life, and this has not been a problem. We made a plan to vacation with my family to see them again this summer. My BIL is refusing to get vaccinated. Everyone else is vaccinated. My parents and sister aren’t happy about it but feel there is nothing they can do.
so nice to have partners and managers that are explicitly appreciative about hard work. Yes, we've worked ~45 hours since Sunday - despite monday holiday- but feels nice to celebrate as a full team!
Is there anyone from Gartner who can tell what they think about the benefits. How many days pto, what is the 401k like?, healthcare etc? Any idea how many days PTO dies an associate partner get?

Suggestions for end of sept vacation in Algarve (Portugal)? Looking to hike/be outdoors as much as possible.
Is there a studio in the dmv area where I can go get a holiday photo taken with my husband? We did a photo shoot in the summer and really don’t want a full fledged photo shoot right now. Just a couple of photos in a studio with some sort of Christmas/ holiday set up. They always show stuff like this in movies, wondering if it’s real lol
Not so fun one: drank too much at the holiday party and feel like a total idiot. Nothing happened but still, lesson learned. Any advice on how to recover?

We risk exposure and bringing it home to our families every time we walk into work, yet are limited to time off work without penalty. What's your sick leave policy?
Asalamualaikum everyone, hope everyone had a great thanksgiving holiday and some Black Friday shopping with family and friends? This is my first time in this bowl and I’m liking what I see so far.
Any fun holiday gift ideas for my SO of 3 years(gay man)? Nothing too expensive, but all ideas welcome! :)
Has anyone ever used the Samaritans? My therapist is on holiday and I badly need help. My boyfriend is ghosting me after a fight and I have the strong feeling it’s over and he’s just being cruel. My self esteem and outlook are zero. I’ve been told EAP is terrible for this so need a temporary option that is free or very cheap. I’m based in the UK in case that helps.
I love the holiday pie 🥧

How do you get past the “guilt” of leaving a company full of people who you like and respect? Currently on a project where I really cannot be replaced this last minute & have the project end successfully. My managers have also repeatedly checked in on me and made it very clear that they want to keep me / are doing everything they can to help me grow at the company. Still, I am not passionate about the work at ALL and want to leave. Just can’t make myself start looking because I feel so guilty.

Potentially stupid but serious question alert: I want to move my money from checking to an index fund (e.g., SP500 type) to build passively vs. it just sitting in my bank. My questions arise around how liquid is this (e.g., if I need to make a large purchase and take a portion of the investment) and what are tax implications for short term withdrawals/selling (e.g., I invest 10k, sell 2k to make a purchase, does this actually help financially or does short term taxes /other negate any benefits)?
