Unless you’ll be committing malpractice by taking time off, here’s a reminder: you can’t take care of your clients if you’re burnt out. Turn your phone off, you don’t owe anyone an explanation.
Looking for some advice.. I am a Tech Recruiter with over 10 years of experience in the agency world. I’m hearing some scary rumblings about my current company that I have spent my entire Tech Recruiting career with and I think I should start looking. Work/life balance, flexible schedule, unlimited time off, and great culture are most important to me. Any suggestions on where I should look/apply? I want to stay away from agency recruiting. Thank you!!
Has anyone in partner ranks been able to take an actual, fully disconnected vacation of at least a full work week in the last 18 months? Genuinely curious.
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Hello fishes, How many days does Deutsche Bank HR take to roll out the offer letter? One of my close friends attended the interview on 24th of January. The next day got a call from the HR team that they will roll out the offer letter very soon but 26th Jan. being a holiday, she informed my friend to wait for some days. Now my friend who is waiting for the offer letter wants to know when she can expect the offer letter and she can proceed for putting her paper in her current organisation.
Throughout pretty much my entire career, I've never taken a true extended vacation. I'm about to take nearly 2.5 weeks off and actually be mostly away from work to focus on my wife and kids. To be honest, I actually have some anxiety about it. Any sage wisdom from others on disconnecting?
Would you rather: (1) stay in big law (V100), collect your checks, keep billing 1900+ annually, knowing you’ll likely only progress to non-equity partner but stable pipelines for work; or (2) transition to boutique firm with no billable requirements, no minimum salary, on a pure revenue split (half of collections), option for equity partner in 16 months? In this scenario you’ve been practicing for 10 years but took some time off for babies and to lateral.
I heard most of us are off for some holiday next week, so enjoy the day off to prepare for the holiday!
What is the company PTO rollover policy?

Job offer for attorney position in Raleigh at USCIR. The offer is 65k and the hiring attorney indicated that 65 is the max. Has anyone had success negotiating higher salary or increased benefits (eg maternity leave, PTO, WFH, etc) - 3 years of experience in immigration law
When's the best time to take PTO ... when you're staffed on a long project or on the bench
Why is it that every time I try to take time off EVERY TEAM pops out of the woodwork for something to do before I leave? Even the quiet teams. It’s Monday and I’ve already logged 20 hours for the week.
Need gift ideas! I’ve been crashing at two of my good friend’s place for the past month and a half and I want to get something to thank them for letting me stay/holiday gift. Budget probably in the $100–150 range combined for both of them. They are both pretty outdoorsy 24 year olds so I was thinking something along those lines but can’t think of anything. All I have so far is a nice bottle of scotch. Please help!
I know this varies based on the company but besides project needs from the hiring manager, does anybody take multiple months between when your background check clears and you actually start? I don’t want to immediately jump from job to job but not sure if taking some time off is generally accepted.
Do I tell my manager I’m leaving the company before their 5 day birthday PTO or after? If I tell, it would be the day before their last day. If I hold on to it will be 2 weeks before my last day. I want to help interview for replacement if they want me to. Also wrapping up my project and Demi going into surge support work, which I expect to do while they’re OOO.
Any thoughts ? My H1B transfer is in process and I’m trying to understand if it even makes to sense to get PTO paid out after the hike
How is RSM PTO? Understand it’s unlimited, which limits more than accrued, but any insight on what you like/dislike?
SM on my project stepped away on paternity leave. SM was the one who led partner discussions and most of the client meetings. We're a week from a client deadline. As a manager, I'm stepping but incredibly stress with the amount of moving parts. I don't have a strong rapport with the partner (Neither did the SM) to be open and transparent on how stressful I'm feeling without downgrading myself. I'm sick to the stomach and very anxious, stressed at the suddenness of the thrust. Help!
Can one quit after taking paternity leave or is there something that say you need to come back for a certain time period in PwC policy?
