When is it either allowed or seen as OK to start using FTO? I recently started here and while I’m not looking to slack off and take time off, I just want to know how it works. (Plus, I don’t want to not use something that I can or should use.) Elementary stuff, I know. But I’ve freelanced my whole career until now. Thanks
I haven't taken a single vacation or sick day in over a year. I'll lateraling to another firm next month (pending conflicts). Would it be in poor taste schedule a vacation prior to giving my two weeks notice? I love my group and I don't want to burn bridges.
Hi all. Posted this in a different bowl and not getting any replies. Hoping you all can help. What benefits are smaller companies (under 50 employees) offering? How much pto? How big of a contribution to health, dental? Any spousal or dependent coverage? Any other less common benefits? Basically looking for ways to remain competitive to the degree possible with larger employers. Thanks!
26F, born and raised in the Midwest, Indian American, Sunni, constantly counting days till my next vacation, non-Hijabi/dress modestly/don't drink/don't smoke/pray 5x (may be late on some)
What is the company PTO rollover policy?
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.
How is RSM PTO? Understand it’s unlimited, which limits more than accrued, but any insight on what you like/dislike?
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.
Hi Rachel! Holiday question - How should I balance my personal “wants” vs. family obligations during the holidays? I am exhausted, want to stay home and rest, do my hobbies, while SO wants to fly to the Midwest to spend time with his large extended family. I would like to set expectations but am unsure how to approach the conversation.

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?
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 quit KPMG at the end of 2020 but they paid out my PTO in Jan 2021. Will they send me a w-2? Do i need to go bug someone to get it for me?
I finally got round to taking that second dose of the Pfizer Vaccine and God .......what an interesting experience...the chills the next day had me thinking I was actually sick. How rough was the second dose for you? ( First dose early December 2021 and Second 20 January 2022) PS: To those asking why I took long to take the vaccine...I relocated to another country in the middle of the pandemic and could not get the vaccine for free until I become a resident.
How would you invest 75k in cash?

Not in IB or ER, but I have to ask (per CFA study), how common is it to run in to troublesome pension accounting issues? It seems like most companies have/are going the way of DC plans and away frm DB
2021 was a tough year for me but looking towards 2022 with much hope since it’s a year of laying the groundwork for more personal & professional transformation. Thankful to the people who were there for me during the challenging times, & even if we don’t have the same friendship now that we had early this year, still grateful. I learned a lot about myself and our discussions helped prepare me to take on the future from a better, even more confident vantage point - & always with a smile! 🙂 ✌️

I’m 50yo and have maybe a 70/30 ratio of stocks to bonds. I want to streamline the number of bond funds/ETFs and am not sure about the right allocation of bond sectors. Who can give me a suggested sub portfolio of bond funds and ETFs, and please explain why allocating to each holding? Thanks fishies.
Anyone in the industry that can offer some advice/insight: Recently graduated with a BA in General Design this past Spring ‘21. And currently finishing a certificate in UX.

Thoughts on having a wealth manager? I hired one two years ago and have seen 20% returns to date. The S&P 500 has seen 25% gains over the same period of time. Wondering if I I’ve got something good or if I should go at it alone...
