Any tips on managing, avoiding or reducing tolerance besides “use less” or “take time off?”. Taking magnesium daily based on anecdotal evidence it helps.
Kicking off a week of PTO with moving. Never thought this day would come so early, taking PTO to *adult*
Drove through downtown Santa Barbara last night. Restaurants were doing indoor dining and there were lots of crowds with no masks. What are you all seeing this holiday weekend?
Any former Slalom 🐠 know whether unused PTO is paid out when you leave? I assume yes but don’t wanna ask and reveal myself as on the way out lol. Thx
Holiday Gifts 2019 Reflecting on this year's holidays. What was one great/significant gift you recieved or gave to a colleague or another Professional that you wanted to show much appreciation to?
I got my first full time job back in March 2019. It’s my dream job in terms of work, team + industry. (I work for a travel agency doing their social). The only downside is the PTO. (Cont)
Anyone interested in joining on a trip to Morocco and Egypt this december holiday break ?
Is it possible to designate your last day of employment over a holiday? Say Thanksgiving this year (11/26/2021) to take advantage of the holiday benefit and get that paycheck?
Getting ready to come back to work after a week of vacation. Definitely feeling imposter syndrome and that I’m not smart enough to come back to Int’l tax. Anyone else ever feel this way about their jobs?
Need some vacation advice. I’m at an all-inclusive that was billed as “luxury”, but food and service are mediocre, the resort is run down, and we’ve had mult instances with other guests making drunken scenes. My wife and I have been doing the all-inclusive route for a while now and I think we’ve come to the conclusion that we need to just go to an expensive, pay as you go resort to get the food, service, and higher caliber of guests. Suggestions on such a place? Carribean preferred. Thanks.
Need some inspiration...fam keeps asking for my holiday gift list and I have very few ideas for myself (34M). Have a few crutches I can lean on from wardrobe/hobbies (golf etc.). Anyone have any go-to, can’t-live-without items they recommend? (Budget <$500 per item)
How much money do you need to make a year to afford a $3 million dollar home, pay for 2.5 future children’s private school education, vacation well, and live and retire comfortably? (I have no students loans or debt and $650k in stocks + a modest amount in 401k. I’m 26.)
Industry peeps that have taken long term time off for either travel or to start your own thing, how much money did you save up before you dipped?
"Almost 40% of millennials work every day of their vacation" No offense but that's just f#*$ing stupid. Stop that.
To all you lovely 🏳️🌈 fish, wishing you a happy, healthy and restful holiday season filled with love❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
I haven’t worked with a therapist before but know I’m totally burnt out and need some time off from work. Has anyone successfully started a relationship with a therapist and gotten their support to do an LOA shortly after starting with them? I’m worried because I don’t have a long standing relationship with a therapist, they’ll be resistant to supporting this. Would appreciate any advice
I’m 9 days out from a desperately needed week-long vacation. I’m so unbelievably burned out that I can’t focus. I have so much to do before my trip, but I can’t seem to get anything done. I just sit at my desk and stare at my computer. Any recommendations for how to force myself to be productive for the next week or so?
OH (from a colleague) at the Warriors game in the beer queue: "they say that's $60, I say that's 60 SPG points." 🏀🍻
Client reached out and asked if I would be interested in joining his team last month. Said I’ll follow up in a week and didn’t. Is it ok to reach out a month later to see if the offer is still on?
I would appreciate any tips on training a paralegal/assistant while managing a heavy (Zoom) court and meeting schedule. My new assistant’s skill set is more narrow than I realized, and there is a lot to teach. I know training will pay off, but if there are some tried and true shortcuts I would love to hear them. My practice is almost exclusively family law.
Client offered a job. Under-qualified but they love me. Pay is great. Only 9 months at D. Feeling a little overwhelmed. Doubting myself. Bought a pack of cigs and taking a cab to Central Park.

TFW the other side comes back with a demand within your settlement authority. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 take that, Wednesday! Anyone else having a minor win today?
On the bench for the first time in a while. So happy I'm not waking up at 4:40 a.m. Good luck to the rest of you flying out tomorrow! I'm going to sit naked in my bed and build a few decks.
I’m seeing a lot of posts where leadership has been committed to making changes, but one thing I’ve noticed no one speaking about is transparency in pay equity. Ensuring there’s diversity in hiring future employees is great, but what are they doing to support pay equity with their current BIPOC employees. How can we ask leaders to release this type of data?
is 6 months too early to ask for a raise?
I’m going through the foster care training program to start fostering a child, but am wondering if there are any women out there who can talk to me about working in consulting & raising foster kids?
Any solutions architects here? If so, how did you get started in consulting. Best project/ worst project.
