It's not exciting but Finance companies are still hiring EA roles Citibank and Morgan Stanley. They seem pretty recession proof. So many big tech companies are laying off now. And blame Zuck for pouring in billions for a Meta world no one wanted or asked for.

We have a fixed PTO time plan (very generous) but leftover rates by now are enormous. It’s gonna be about 160 hours of unused PTO per employee in the end of the year, and we only rollover 80. We thought about rolling over everything, but then accruals get too high. Does anyone have creative ideas how we can roll over excessive hours and don’t make them wages at the same time...
