What could your employer do to make you happy and want to stay? I go first 🙋🏽 more time off and leadership be an example by discouraging unrealistic overtime work
Started a new job this week and it’s super strange meeting people virtually. Not sure if there’s another thread out there about this but does anyone have any tips? I’m waiting until a non holiday week to reach out to people for a quick chat, but it feels so not personable
Holiday presents for daycare teachers- giving gift cards but have absolutely no idea how much to spend. What is normal these days?
Over the holiday shut down I want to really do some things to have alone time and relax. Anyone have a recommendation for a great spa anywhere that’s easy to get to? Either in NYC or an easy place to get to outside? I would love a spot with a serenity room and with hot tubs etc. please share anything you know and if you recommend a specific massage therapist or treatment or anything. Or if you have other spots like Buddhist temples or anything where I can get some relaxation. Thanks!
Last week, I made a post about how my manager is suggesting I work through Christmas break to meet a deadline, despite me already letting my team know of my planned Christmas vacation. Well, I just saw that my manager will be on PTO starting the day I scheduled my vacation to start through the end of the year 😵💫 absolutely cannot wait to quit
I had multiple mediations recently. I do management side employment law. Overall I’m walking away feeling like what the heck are we paying the mediators for? I’m tired of the mediators saying they don’t want to hear about the merits of the case. The merits are DIRECTLY tied to the amount of settlement authority I have. I feel like our clients are getting worked way more than the plaintiffs side. Also plaintiffs have followed up every single settlement with “can we get the funds before holiday?”
Had multiple negative rapid tests and an initial negative PCR tests last week. Only to get a call this AM from local urgent care saying a glitch in the portal system falsely reported negative PCR test results, and the results are positive. I recently attended my company’s holiday party. I’m fully vaxxed w/ no symptoms, I’ve already contacted work and friends I was w/ over the weekend. What do I do now?
I was planning a West Coast vacation between Christmas and new year. All bookings done. Now with the new Covid variant - I don’t really know!! Super sad to think i might have to cancel it

Christmas/holiday gift ideas for assistants?
My confession is… I’m spending too much this Christmas on presents. Like, almost 1 months worth of pay, after tax. So, what are you getting your loved ones this holiday?
First year in a concierge building for me. I want to give two concierge staff and my maintenance guy a holiday tip. Also thinking it’s necessary to do the same for my property manager and asst property manager who are onsite and also great. How much is normal in DC?
How much do you tip your building for XMas/holiday bonus? The doorman/staff have been awesome so want to make sure I’m tipping a good amount after a tough year.
I’m in industry with 3 direct reports and another 6 indirect reports. What small holiday gift can I send them? Trying to stay under $250 total.
I’ve been in the hospital for a few days and will be returning to work this week in total I’ll be out 7-10 work days. Do I charge it as PTO? Would you recommend doing a take 5? Is there another way?
Holiday gift ideas for couples? Will be attending Xmas dinner with friends and want to give each couple something.
Writing the card for the company-wide holiday party at Topgolf and this might be the hardest I’ve worked all year.
We have a hollywood glam themed holiday party but it’s outside so I want to wear my long sleeve dress, but it’s yellow. Is that too spring-y? The style fits the glam vibe but not the holiday vibe. I know most of my team is not dressing to theme but I know yellow may be jarring at this time of year…thoughts? I just don’t wanna be cold 😩
Hi evey one, hope you guys are doing great. Currently I am working as a technical support associate in dell international Services. I am looking forward to work in remote desktop support,service desk, L2 role, or anything above to the current role. Any help or suggestions would be highly appreciated.
For those who are looking for exit opps, do you see more jobs allowing remote options? Located in smaller city so wondering if I can find something in major cities without moving
Got several offers and I narrow down to two best offers that are pretty close. Capital One ($124,600 with 7.5k signon bonus) and TMobile ($128,500 with 10k signon bonus). At this point, it’s hard to choose. Which company would you prefer? Can you give me some insights working with Capital One and T Mobile
Looking to get a few certifications, I have worked in both IT and HR consulting and am trying to decide between ITIL, SHRM, and PMP. Any thoughts on which would be best for future, quickest to get, hardest test? I get the cert paid for and a bonus upon completion, so trying to decide which one to pursue or the order if I want multiple.
Middle seat in comfort + on Delta or a window/aisle seat in the back of the plane.. decisions.
Have an Uber final round via zoom yet their whole interview lineup sits in my location. Is this typical? Starting to get spooked and thinking they’re using me for free analyst resources
How come 'Weekends' = 'A Reset Button' for some peoole? Like, how do you "forgot" ALL the feedback given in an internal TWO days ago?!?!????!
Delta broke my checked in luggage wheel and is reimbursing me around $150. What should I get? Domestic carry-on mostly.
During yesterday's all hands, Kelly said her "plan is to have Parthenon as the leader in pay across professional services" What are average bonus numbers for MBB ? Do you think bonuses will align with theirs and what do you think our average bonus numbers will be this year?
Any inside info on the McGuireWoods west LA office? Specifically the Healthcare transaction group. Interviewing this week.
Hey 🐠, what are your recommendations of books, articles, or practice tips to improve communication, both verbal and written?
I keep hearing that the CFP is worth it. What makes it worth it? The knowledge, the credibility, the confidence? All of the above I assume. Do you have prospects seek you out?
So these being fired for low utilization posts are freaking me out. Any EY 🐠 hear anything like this for this performance year yet? Is that automatically considered if you get below a 3?
I have a prospect who owns a trucking business looking to start a retirement plan. This is my first business retirement plan. What would you rec here and what other questions should I be asking?
ACN interviewer made a mistake and did case study interview for manager level role instead of consultant role. I have great feedback from 1st Interview and not so much from case interview because of this. I had a catch up with the recruiter this morning and he said they've now closed recruitment and have said they will get in touch with me towards end of January for Q2 recruitment and that I may need to do case interview again. Good prospects or bad?
I had a first round phone interview with a hiring manager last Friday (one week ago). I felt it went well. Is it okay to email the recruiter to see if there is an update? Or is it better to just wait?
