What to do with excess cash? Already have a rainy day fund, saved up for vacation, and maxed out 401k, ira, and hsa. I don't have any debt and I can't trade in anything but funds.
I will never understand grown ups that don’t have children that still choose to vacation at Disney
How did you all handle like a family matter or traumatic event that happened while super busy at work? I’m finding myself being very unmotivated and unable to focus, but feel like I can’t take time off.
About to take an offer at EY. Want a baby soon and saw the great news about increased parental leave. Question is, can u use vacation time consecutively with it? Right now most on leave take 5 months

Anyone successfully negotiate their vacation time? I have never had more than 3 weeks off and well past 10 YOE...
I go back tomorrow after a week's vacation. When is it expected I start catching up on email? Tonight? Tomorrow?
How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
"Who was your plus-one to that previous company event? Bring them to the holiday party!" "Yeah I'd love to but we actually stopped seeing eac--" "Anyway can't wait to see them at the holiday party!"
When you start planning your vacation in excel 🙃 and the worst part is it’s actually making it easier
Any moms take off a few weeks during first trimester? How did it work? Can you use STD instead of PTO? If yes, does that then reduce the STD you have for mat leave? I live in CA if that makes a difference.
Taking a half day of PTO this Friday. Cheers to everyone who can get out of the office early today after a crazy week of grinding. To those who can’t, may the PPT winds always be at your back.
Proposal touch point near EOD. I will be PTO tomorrow and unavailable most of the evening. Does it make sense to still attend or should I just decline the invite? I’m kind of nervous saying that I’ll be unavailable for action items. First proposal so sorry for the newb question.
Anyone have experience using MS Teams chat over Southwest in-flight Wi-Fi? Not planning on being “that person” attending a meeting on a plane, just responding to any MS Teams chats that come my way so I don’t have to take PTO.
Do you guys usually do mobile check in on the bonvoy app when on vacation? Is there a better chance of getting upgraded when you check in in person?
My company is changing to unlimited vacation days. Will they pay out the people who still have vacations saved up? They are being super secretive. Has anyone gone through this?
I’m unable to focus on work and I keep dropping the ball on some projects. I hate to put this on my personal life but I’ve experienced three family deaths (including a parent) and a death of a good friend all within the last five months. I feel like I should have taken significant time off but I think now it’s too late with end of the year financials etc. Does anyone have any tips on how to bounce back up?
What should I do during the 3 weeks I have before starting my new job? I feel like my mental health at my current one hasn’t been the greatest so I would somehow like to maximize the time off
When it takes you two weeks of working to catch up from one week of vacation...seems like it should be the other way around ☠️

Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories.

Hoping for some perspectives.
