I go to my in-laws where they make the typical thanksgiving meal and eat early AF. I bring the best part...the flan 🍮!

Tradition: early workout with my Fam of 15+ day of, soccer tournament or 5k run. Food: pozole, tamales or turkey (this year it's turkey 😞). Married a salvi so we have a 2nd dinner with his Fam and eat panes con pavo. Excited for it all!!! Feliz día a todos.

What can I do if my manager keeps rejecting my pto? The excuse is that “we can’t have two people out at the same time” but the manager has broken this rule so many times.

Time to get to work at 9 on a Sunday to try to finish off an engagement while the manager and partner both go on 2 weeks of vacation.

KPMG folks, if you log 8 hours as PTO on a given day and then also log billable hours on the same day, will that inflate your adjusted utilization %?

Real talk: I’m part of an affinity bar association and we have weekly happy hours. There’s a white dude (who is a partner at his firm) who always shows up. I guess he’s an “ally” but I feel like I can’t be candid about some things because he’s there. Also, at my firm we have a diversity retreat and recently this white associate complained she couldn’t participate. Thoughts?
