What consulting firms have the best WLB? How many hours per week do you work? Are weekends safe? Is vacation safe?
¡Feliz Día de Acción de Gracias!/Happy Thanksgivings! How do you and your family celebrate this holiday? What are some of your traditions (old, new or remixed ones)? What dishes do you like to make?
My school has seen combinations of f2f, hybrid, and remote teaching/learning throughout the first half of the school year. After the MLK holiday, our district is returning to traditional f2f teaching 100%. I have 4 band classes (1 beginning, 2 intermediate, & 1 advanced), and as far as content pacing is concerned, we’re 1 9-week grading period behind. Is it a far fetched goal to get my students where they need to be by the end of the school year? How would you handle a situation like this?
Wayfair Wants us to work Black Friday week but says we have to make up our free thanksgiving holiday they gave us for regular pay first before we can get double pay, is it just me or that sneaky? I’d rather get double to work the holiday! 😡 thoughts? Wayfair
Been itching for a trip. Want to do something solo, drop the locations for best solo destinations. I have 22 PTO days so want to start exploring
About to start work travel again and will be traveling to WA from NY. Also, going to Asia in a few weeks for vacation (Cathay flight). I have a bit of points on AA. But thinking if I should switch to Alaska or Cathay? Idk if it matters and am new to this so hoping someone can steer me in thinking this out
Happy Holidays to all! (Aren’t we glad that 2020 is almost over?) Hopefully you are all on a well deserved break by now. Did you do anything holiday CTE related with your scholars?
Planning a vacation in late June, any recommendations for somewhere with lots of golf and with a bit of nightlife/near beach and if not a beach - a resort with a nice pool. Ive been to Miami already. Would be for ~5 days
I have been in sales even before college. I'm reaching a burn out. I feel like the expectations get higher the more work I put in and that ends with me putting on many hats to get done. I can't catch a break, let alone allowed a decent vacation without having to negotiate based on performance. I honestly don't want to be in sales forever. I'm versatile when it comes to any tasks due to the nature of wearing many hats. Any suggestions?
Anyone else with intermittent FMLA feel guilty when they use their time off? I have legitimate reasons for using it but feel so guilty when I do.
Would you go on an international vacation shortly after a frozen embryo transfer (5-10 days after)? It is looking like my first transfer opportunity will be shortly before a trip I already have planned. I’d rather not wait, and the one time I have been pregnant before I implanted on a international vacation but I don’t know if this is a stupid thing to do? I have a very stressful job so maybe it would be good to be away from work?? Curious what others think.

for those who have recently found new jobs, where did you primarily look/ what worked for you? Did you use a recruiter or search on your own? I’ve been looking on LinkedIn and Glassdoor and feel kinda overwhelmed and I wanna get out before busy season
For Air Canada - If I don't select a seat ($$), are my wife and I likely to still be next to each other if purchased together? Most of the flight is still empty, don't care where on the plane we sit, but don't want to pay $60+ each way to sit together.
HR gave a verbal offer Monday and stated yesterday they are waiting on one more piece of information, then should have the written offer. I have a clean criminal background and was transparent about former education and work experiences. Should I just put in my two weeks at my current employer tomorrow despite not have the tangible letter?
I’m about to put my two weeks in at my company and will be starting at a firm I’ve really admired and heard great things about.

Should I be rolling my old 401k accounts (opened through past employers) into my IRA? If so, does it have to be a new IRA or can it be to one I already have opened? I just heard someone mention this and didn’t know this was a thing.
Help. I’m afraid to have kids. I have ADHD & work really hard to function. My husband has ADHD too, but affects him differently & he functions better. Our kids will likely have it too & between all of us I’m afraid I won’t be able to handle it. Anxiety is one of my co-morbidities & i perseverate on things- events, ideas, etc. I’m honestly scared I will run away and leave everyone. Torn between wanting kids & knowing I’d be a good mom but afraid it’ll turn me into a anxious depressive wreck.
RE: Day rates and exempt status. Any problems working way over 40 hours in media especially? It’s been about 7 years since I last freelanced but was able to claim overtime then. (cont’d)
Staffed most of the year but low utilization (<40%) due to partners asking team not to bill. I have read other posts that say to ask for non-charge code when this happens. If projects are (continued)
