We offered our nanny the option to stay at home due to the cold weather. She decided to but we never clarified if we were paying her or using a PTO day. Normally we guarantee 40hr pay. Do we pay 4 day
I’m > 1 year in and am already noticing there is no such thing as PTO because everyone still works during PTO. Is this the same in industry?

Had an interview at a firm where they have an unlimited vacation policy that’s just “speak with your deal teams in advance to get time off”. Anyone actually know in practice how many days is a normal amount to request in a @year? My current firm gives you 20 days and very much pushes you to take those days, so just wondering if anyone at a firm with a similar policy takes around 20 without issue.

Need advice- How do I make my LinkedIn profile more attractive to recruiters from FAANG or MBB apart from listing the relevant experience? It seems like all recruiters that are reaching out lately, are from small firms and for jobs with lower compensation than my current position. When I tell them my desired compensation they think it is too high.
Hi, looking for recommendations for a therapist, ideally NYC -based but also someone who does remote sessions. Mostly looking for help with severe anxiety, depression, and maybe cognitive behavior therapy. BCBS insurance. I’m a single parent, and I’m struggling. Thanks in advance.
How do you guys schedule your hours? Say I need to hit 200 hours per month. Currently I take the amount of working days in a month (M-F) and divide it by 200 to get how many hours I need to bill per day. For example, May has 20 working days, so I need to bill 10hrs./day M-F. I’ve done exactly that thus far and have been able to stick to a pretty consistent schedule. But I know a lot work on weekends. For instance, if I worked Saturdays too there are 25 billable days which means 8hrs/day.

Hello! A senior associate that I work for is expecting and she will be going on parental leave soon. She has been a great mentor to me and so I wanted to get/send her a gift congratulating her on the new baby once she goes on her leave. Any ideas for a gift? (We aren’t incredibly close so it doesn’t seem as easy as shopping for a friend/family member who just had a baby, if that makes sense) TIA!
