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!
Does your firm make allowances to billable hours for PTO/sick leave? Every firm I’ve been to has been “billing 9-12 hours a day until you make up the deficit.” That shit ain’t right, but curious if others have a different experience.
Can someone please explain the rules/laws underpinning the need to go on a 'tax holiday' while on a long term project? EY does not have a mobility team like other firms that provides employees advice.
Has anyone done the math about whether it is more cost effective to quit and cash out PTO or run out PTO and then quit in NYC?
Do you all check/reply your emails even when you take some time off/are off sick? I feel like I live in constant FOMO. Like something super important/urgent is going to happen even if I don’t have any trials or Ct deadlines coming up. If you do, how do you switch off?
So has anyone decorated their door or room for the holidays? We have a contest at our school - My room will lose to the guy with the real tree and working fireplace, but I think it turned out pretty well. Does anyone have some holiday decor they’d like to share?
I’m full time at an agency but have lots of unused vacation. Is it okay to freelance at another agency for a week or two?
I know MA requires payout of accrued PTO if you leave. That said, Accenture typically only pays out up to 240 hrs (annual rollover cap). If l leave with 280, will they be forced to pay out extra 40?
A depressing holiday by any measure
Would you leave before busy season if you get an offer in December before the holiday break or would you negotiate your start date to try to stay through the busy season (6 weeks) due to staff shortages? I feel like I’m fucking my team over but also am so over audit and all the hours/work they’re giving me due to staff shortages.
Does deloitte pay out all your unused PTO when you leave the firm? I may be moving to a new company and I'm trying to look this up.

So the expense policy says Thursday night dinners in between the airport and your house are “typically not reimbursable.” Who gets to make that call? I’ve always picked up takeout on the way home but
Thoughts on interviewing somewhere just as a means to use it as a counter-offer negotiating tactic for other opportunities?
Does anyone have any experience with the United Chase Explorer card? Does the free checked bag apply to international flights (specifically to Europe)? If I book basic economy, would I still get that checked bag + a carry on? How does seat selection work on basic? What priority boarding group is associated with this card? I’m assuming the card alone will not make you eligible for upgrades, does the united club card do this? The explorer card is pretty cheap annually, but is this even worth it?

Has there ever been an effort to organize/unionize adworkers the way we see with the Writer's Guild? There are a lot more people in this business than in entertainment. Healthcare access?
Need honest advice from B4 women who worked a busy season during their third trimester. What boundaries did you set (if any)? How did you communicate this to your team (email or face-to-face/video? And how did you word it?) Was your team supportive or were you pressured to work? How did the busy season impact your pregnancy? What do you wish you did differently? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.
