Thank you! I’ll look into this

Also, there’s nothing they can do to you if you quit early even if you said you’d stay a year — you can say you had planned to work all the way till med school but left early for some personal time before school. My lab in undergrad had quite a bit of churn so PIs kind of expect it

Hey habibis expats! The market in Dubai is obscure when it comes to compensation and benefits. I suggest we add clarity by posting salaries, role/position and years of experience here and anything else you want to add such as benefits. I’ll start:

- Industry: tech
- Role: finance manager
- YOE: 5 years
- Comp: 270k aed/year + 5% bonus
- Other benefits: work from Europe/US 1 month/year, 30 vacation days

Does anyone know if Lewis brisbois pays out unused vacation days if you leave the firm?

AITA? I live abroad. Invited a friend to come over for free, for vacation while I’m working so that they can explore the city. Result is they’re not independent and struggle exploring alone. they just spend all day playing video games or watching tv next to me when I’m working (my desk is in the living room). They knew upfront I was going to be working. This is super annoying. Can’t go into the office (not at EY anymore).
Ithink I’ll never invite friends to stay with me when I’m working lol

Burnout is because you did something consistently for an extended period. You can do quick fixes like go on vacation, get some sleep, exercise more. But they may only help temporarily, depending on your level of Burnout.

I’ve worked at places that all have different holiday policies. EA has at minimum a nice 10 day shutdown from Christmas Eve through New Years. It’s great to know that there will be no slack messages or an exploded inbox to come back to while away. I’ve been at other studios that only give you Christmas Eve & Day and New Years Eve & Day and then the rest is up to you to request for PTO and this is obviously the suck.

Wonder what it’s like for you?

I'm shocked at Amazon's PTO offering..
10days to start with another 5 days of personal time...
A total of 3 weeks? Plus like 7 holidays Is this the norm with other larger tech companies?

Currently at EY and I get
- Unlimited PTO (I've stuck to 4ish weeks without any frowns since after the change to unlimited)
- 10 days sick
- 20 holidays (including summer and winter shutdowns)
