Omicron and God laughing


Party pooper smh

I worry about travel right now. What if the countries involved implement new measures while you're gone and you end up having to get two vaccines in a random airport parking lot before spending a forced month in some expensive but uncomfortable quarantine hotel, despite doing everything you should have before leaving? It just doesn't seem like it would be fun.



Did you see the news? I am traveling to my home town and scared like hell

For what?? It's more contagous but not more deadly.

Risky tbh

I hope you have a positive trip that is not affected by covid

Where OP? Hope you have fun!

Has anyone ever taken a leave of absence/sabbatical due to burnout/exhaustion/depression? I'm feeling at my wits end with everything right now and have an appointment with my dr tomorrow. I feel like some time off away from everything would do me some good - I also have some other medical problems - but I'm afraid of what it might do to my career, what my co-workers/family will think, etc.


Reminder to everyone: use your 2021 vacation time. Don’t let it pass you by just because you’re not traveling. Take a long weekend once a month to nap and eat chips in sweat pants all day. We all need to do our part to normalize self care, and sitting at home doing “nothing” is just as worthy of a vacation day as pina coladas on the beach.


How is RSM PTO? Understand it’s unlimited, which limits more than accrued, but any insight on what you like/dislike?

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!

Considering an offer from EY. Can any current EY'ers advise on the following: 1) Unlimited PTO: I will be aiming for around 5 weeks (200 hours) of PTO in addition to the paid holidays and the summer and winter shutdowns (19 days). Is this feasible? 2) Any feedback on the 1Manhattan West office? Looks really nice and new. 3) Are you allowed to work from abroad occasionally? 4) Anything else I should know ( little-known perks / benefits / things that suck)


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?


Anyone interested in joining my team as a contract recruiter? The role can be remote but must be based on the east coast. This is a long term assignment with the possibility to go perm (if you’re willing to go to the office when the dust settles). Otherwise it’s for a large redoubtable investment firm in PA. $60/hr and you will hit overtime and receive healthcare (plenty of OT to make up for no PTO). Must have technical recruiting experience and our team is awesome.


I’m on the GPS PDM town hall and they seem to be ignoring the fact that the PTO impacts the PDM track whereas other tracks do not…. Unless they answered and I missed it
