Do you fly out to family for the holidays or do they come to you? We're hosting Christmas for the first time and having the entire family come to town for it. What are some can't miss holiday events in the city? Ideally accessible because my father is in a wheelchair.
Has anyone ever been to the delta hotel by Marriott nayarit? My SO wants to go to an all inclusive so there's less vacation stress with planning meals and such. Looking to find a place that's close to beach and also nature.
If anyone's been or has great reviews for other marriot all-inclusive hotels I'd love to hear your reviews. TIA!

🎄How do you plan to recharge over the holiday? Is your company giving you time off?

Tell me if this is selfish or not. I adore my family, but since they're doing a very lowkey Christmas situation this year, I really would rather take a weeks vacation on my own. Obviously the holidays are about spending time with those you love, but I'm tired! And I see my entire family at least once a month for a group dinner. Am I a bad daughter/sister if I choose vacation this one time?
Found myself in a conversation with the branch manager (white male pushing thru his late 60's) about holiday decorations. I just told him how I've been directed by corporate to keep the winter holiday decorations as non denominational and he nearly exploded. Starts saying how Christmas is the "American Way" and "nobody is going to take MY Christmas" and "this is MY BRANCH, I will decorate for CHRISTMAS" and so much more. I'm just flabbergasted, frustrated but not surprised.
I hit rock bottom (I mean it) and in 6 weeks I managed a vacation, landed a new job, found a great guy, and landed a bomb apartment. Everything can change at the drop of a hat - keep your chin up.
I have an offer for a newly created collections strategy project manager at a mid sized credit union for $95k, 7-9% bonus, and 3 weeks PTO.
I did ask to go up to $100k, but was told my offer was already above the target range.
I like the company and my colleagues to be.
How much should I charge a friend to watch 4 dogs at their home over Christmas weekend (2 nights)? The dogs don't have any special needs or medications. I've dog sat for other people in the past but always for free. I also have had dogs of my own for most of my life. I want to start charging people for my services but also want to be reasonable since this is a friend and don't plan to charge a holiday fee. We live in St. Louis. Would $40 per day/night be reasonable?
I’m really concerned about this company if the “head of global well-being” is having a full blown panic attack about returning to work following a holiday 🤨

Senior PM at Havas in New York— could I ask for 125k and what could I negotiate for more PTO?
Are ya’ll getting holiday gifts for your judge & JA and if so, what are you getting for them? The culture of my court is definitely a gift-giving one, and I really like my JA and my judge so I want to get both of them something small (like a plant, but not a plant lol).
How do your firms do payroll? This is like the 5th time in 26 months that paychecks weren’t timely deposited. Allegedly, the boss did everything right and this is something in the payroll company. But his stuff is getting crazy and everyone is out on PTO, I’m kinda like: meet minimum ethical obligations and no more. Once or twice, I understand. But this is becoming regular.
Ladies into jewelry, help please. Looking for a tennis necklace to go with an outfit I’m thinking of putting together for a holiday party coming up. Can’t afford the nice real diamonds but I’m seeing some options online for “graduated” diamonds, lab-grown, etc. in the $300-$500 range, which is doable for me. Any advice on what to go with or what to look for? Also, this would be my first time spending that type of money on jewelry - is it a risk trying to buy it online? TIA
The fact that I received an email on a Sunday from my senior manager asking me to not take PTO that I've earned and reserved MONTHS ago because of poor planning on his part has officially given me the push to start looking for another job. Even the partner said that it's "very important" that I be available those weeks. I'm going on a road trip with my fiancé to get away from work and have a mental break. I have been working at least 60 hours since February, but now I'm officially done.
Just got a promotion to go to 105k + 10% bonus unlimited PTO (trust me when I say I really use my PTO.. 😂) for embedded software engineer in Melbourne Fl. Should I start looking for a new job?
Is Wealth Mgmt dying? Have an opp to join an existing team and eventually take over the book of business at a large, well known firm. The potential upside is great, but I worry about automation.
I was told that I was the chosen candidate for a new role that I applied for which will be promotion, I just recently received my offer and was surprised and decided to start negotiating. My boss immediately said that this is offer, either take it or lose it and no negotiating, and was only given a day to decide whether I want it or not, so he repost the position, and was also told that I was going about it the wrong way for trying to negotiate, Is this wrong of me to negotiate?

Conduent HR is ghosting even after sending a salary break up. When I finally got hold of her she told me to send the counter offer through mail. She is not responding to my mails when I'm nearing lwd, very unprofessional behaviour from Conduent. They at least should have the basic decency to get back if rejected or on hold so I could pursue other opportunities. Why drag until lwd? Conduent Tata Consultancy Deloitte India Techie

Pregnant with my first baby and I’m having the WORST sciatic nerve pain. I had a back injury with nerve damage when I was in my early 20s and at 18 weeks pregnant, it’s almost unbearable. I’ve increased my prenatal workouts like yoga, Pilates and walking because my doctor said that helps but it’s not helping. Any advice from the momma fishes? 🙏🏻
Are there any firms trying to up their game and compete with the Deloitte Human Capital behemoth? EY, KPMG, and PWC’s HC offerings just seem pathetic. I have heard PWC is trying something new.

Question for the boys! How concerned are you about your spouse’s past? I’ve talked to men who care a lot and want details to see if they can stomach it basically. And in Islam, you don’t have to disclose anything and I’m leaning towards concealing as much as I can because I don’t want to be judged by it and also my Islamic right to keep it to myself.

If you work at a small agency in NYC, could you tell me what your monthly health insurance premiums are for families? I'm at a small agency in NYC and the health benefits for a family are almost prohibitively expensive, ~1,500/mo with a high deductible. Would love to know if we're competitive or not and if not, share that info with our HR and bosses.

Being the guy who brings coke is never a good look. Save it for the after party, and even then keep it quiet
This. The amount of gossip about the folks doing coke at the party is insane. And they tend to look like fools because most other folks are semi-sober. After party. And still subtle.
Wait for someone in the C suite to break out the good stuff.

Uhm maybe if you work at GameStop then yes do drugs at your office party
Cannabis is just like “medication” now, right?
WELL you seem new here. #cokeatworkbadconcept
Find your after-party crowd before the day of the party. Make sure you've all got your own bags. Give the coke fiend a different address for afters.
Save it for the after party and the funeral.
