My SO is always adjusting our lives to accommodate his family - from our holiday plans, to where we may settle down, etc. however whenever he needs help he reaches out to my family. It really really bothers me but whenever I say it he says I’m so transactional in mindset about my family helping. Not the case imo but yes it bothers me that he has my sister help him with things but plans life to convenience his brother
Are there any other Project Managers who have ADHD ? What type of PM work do you do? Outside of it just not being what I want for a career path if I advance / I don’t find it rewarding anymore, I have greatly struggled as I’ve moved up and now with the simplest things. I’m turning in my notice this week because of how badly it affects my well being especially the last year and a half. I plan to take a long time off and look for something once I have resigned. Any insight is appreciated.
Career Tip: Martyrdom is not rewarded in the workplace. Take your PTO. Take care of your body & your mind. Have interests and strong relationships outside of work so that you do not attach undue importance to the people at work. Protect your peace.
Do they decorate for the holidays where you work? I work at a pretty large hospital and they do the eaves and the trees outside, but I'm thinking of making some paper snowflakes and maybe getting a mini tree for the nurses station. Good idea? I don't want to offend anyone just thought it could bring some holiday cheer as corny as that is.
Parents don’t really celebrate Christmas and decided to take their own last minute vacation for the holidays without me (last minute cheap deals). Anyone else’s family do this type of last minute “planning” like mine? And anyone else left to their own devices for the holidays?
Could someone explain the difference between a firm policy that sets a specific amount of paid vacation time for associates versus a firm policy that has unlimited vacation time? Specifically with respect to how this impacts billable requirements. Thank you!
Does anyone know how many days of PTO (Vacation) KPMG offers Senior Associates that are external hires?
Anyone else seriously exhausted by the holiday season? With work, cleaning & decorating, making travel plans and shopping for presents I just feel run down and tired and we're not even close to Christmas yet. My husband tries his best but I feel like so much of the holiday season falls on women's shoulders to handle. Am I wrong?
How do you plan out your dates for maternity leave? I do not want to work up until my due date because I do not want the added stress prior to birth. I also want to give the people covering for me some clear instructions and don’t want to deal with going into labor while still in the middle of managing projects. My company does STD for the first 6 weeks but there is a one week “waiting period” that’s unpaid unless you put in PTO. How do you plan your last day knowing baby could come anytime?
What are you doing for holiday gifting?

Since we're headed towards cold weather and the holiday season, let's talk about how we can take care of ourselves during the fall/winter and beyond. For example, I'm buying a sun lamp because it's about to be 50 degrees and raining for 6 months 🤦🏻♀️.

Hey y’all. I’ve been tasked with helping an NPO run a virtual conference, which may lead to multiple throughout the year. The conference will have around 1k participants with multiple sessions and trainings going on in addition to the “main stage” over the course of the weekend. What are some of the things you would/have considered for a full virtual weekend? And what do you think the cost would be to run something like this in house? Vs third party?

Anyone else feel more disconnected from the younger people after mid 40s? I understood their plight, knew the lingo, knew what kind of in-person gatherings would be fun, etc. All of a sudden I feel like I have no idea how to connect. I want them to get off my lawn and I’ve never felt that way before. Just looking for an ear.
