Are there any blackout days for vacation at EY? If I have a vacation in my ARMS for months, can somebody push back and say we need you? I spent a lot of money and time planning this trip...
Everyone and their mama has been raving about air fryers. They said it's a healthier alternative to deep frying. Any recommendations? I want one for my holiday meals. I am currently looking at this one on Macys. https://www.macys.com/shop/product/crux-6.3-quart-digital-touchscreen-electric-air-fryer-created-for-macys?ID=11304871&pla_country=US&CAGPSPN=pla&cm_mmc=Google_SH_PLA_Cookware-_-GS_Cookware_PLA_Crux-_-293719126716-_-pg1050674350_m_kclickid__kenshoo_clickid__KID_EMPTY_1546922786_61770717587_293719126716_aud-37409341359
EY - ladies, what to wear to the holiday party?!
43/F traveling solo to Monterey, CA this Friday for a weekend conference. This will be my first vacation in 6 years. I've been to Cannery Row and the aquarium but that's about it. Any recommendations for good restaurants/things to do?
Pwc - new joiner, how do we do vacation this week? I got the email but 2 days of vacation Monday and Tuesday is that the same as floating holiday? Or so I use a different WBS for floating holiday?
I want to go from Tech Consulting to Commercial Law (UK). I know that I need to apply for Vacation Schemes, or try my luck with a Training Contract. Any advice would be much appreciated!
We often talk about European OOO msgs in this group, turns out there are challenges. "As costs ballooned, officials were "stunned" by the French taking a month vacation each summer." www.yahoo.com/news/budget-overruns-culture-clashes-over-121033257.html
I’ve never been a regular vacation-taker, but now I’m resolved to become one. Especially because my company has an unlimited PTO policy. Would 4 weeks of total vacation per year be considered a lot/excessive at your company? I’m thinking of doing two one week vacations, and one two week vacation, and booking them far in advance.
Currently have my vaca. balance maxed out, but I'm going to take a 3 week vacation in 2 months. Anyway to "spend" my vacation in advance w/o actually taking it so I can continue to accrue more vaca???

So in my first organization my last working day was 23rd oct 2017 and for my 2 nd organization my joining date is 25 sept 2017....these dates are overlapping because my 1st organization had vacation concept(bench without pay).....

I left my BigLaw job earlier this year to take some time off and/or retire early. I now have an offer from an old colleague, now at a boutique, to write briefs on a contracting basis. We haven’t discussed pay yet—what would be a reasonable hourly rate to ask for?
If I put in my two weeks notice, can I just not come into work some days? They can’t do anything if I’m already quitting right? I assume it’d come out of my PTO
I saw a retail establishment fully decked out in Christmas decorations a few days ago. I, too, love the holiday season. But it's not the season yet!!
Is there anything wrong with taking vacation in one of my final weeks at my job ? I don’t want to have any gaps in pay .
Can they disburse excess PTO for those who get fired on 11/16 to the rest of us?? It’s just in time for thanksgiving AND Christmas, too?!

What are some of the top boutique HR consulting firms (talent strategy, organizational culture, organizational development)?
it feels like every survey about working from home is (poorly) designed to answer the useless question "would you rather work from home or from the office." I submit that the set of people who prefers to have only one of those two options, always and forever, is the null set. which means it DOES NOT MATTER because the correct answer is always going to be "make both possible." you're welcome, HR departments everywhere.

Does Deloitte provide work from home allowance to new joiners? If yes, how much? Any other joining benefits?
Does the WLB get better when you move up? Or does it get worse with increased travel, more hours, and weekend work? Wondering if it’s even worth pursuing partnership.
Final FP&A interview tomorrow with the director. Have already had one interview with the hiring manager, and two interviews with the team. What should I expect for tomorrow? Recruiter who scheduled the interview said keep doing what you’re doing and be yourself. Does that mean the team didn’t think I was myself during their interviews? Or am I reading into this too much?
My husband and I (both 27) max out our Roth IRAs each year, have a complete emergency fund, and I’m able to start maxing my 401K this year (he contributes 10% to his 401K - it isn’t possible for him to max his based on his current pay). We contribute 18% extra towards principal on our mortgage each month. We now have about $20k of additional savings we want to figure out what to do with. What would you recommend to someone who is new to stocks/investments?
Is it true that generally companies pay employees with MBAs more than they would employees without for the same position? In other words just for having an MBA employers put MBAs at the top end of a pay band vs. non-MBAs?
I have an on-site interview that's on a Friday. Is it reasonable to ask the company to fly me back on a Sunday instead of Friday so I can explore the city I'd be moving to?
Hard money loan for a buy, rehab rent project: 168k principal, 8% interest, 2.9% loan cost (4.8k) and 4 points (6.7k) The upfront cost seems a bit excessive to me or is this normal today?

For those, who are immigrants, what made you stay in New York? Would be especially interested to hear from those who didn’t come for economical reasons. I am told the excitement about the city wears off 😅 I am European, just came 2 years ago and am still loving it, but also start to wonder if staying in a job I don’t like it’s all worth it (I am on L1 visa, so no way to find a new job). Life in Europe isn’t too bad either.
If I had to pick my most hated concourse of any concourse I've ever been in, it'd be G at ORD T3. What about you?
