I received an offer I can’t turn down. My company had a few others leave recently, and my close counterpart is on vacation until October, so the GC and rest of the company will likely be in disarray after I leave.
Any advice on how to put in my 2 weeks? I’d prefer to leave on a good note and not a sour one…

My final paycheck last year got cut on 12/31, including about a $2500 401(k) contribution. That deposit did not hit my 401(k) account until Jan. 3, 2022 because of the holiday. Does that get counted against my 2021 or 2022 contribution limit?
Is it normal to feel numb around the holidays? I'm tired, dealing with seasonal affective disorder and a really tough caseload right now. Not in the holiday spirit at all and honestly don't even want to be, I just want to spend the weekend resting. Is it bad that I don't care about it at all this year?
How do your firms do payroll? This is like the 5th time in 26 months that paychecks weren’t timely deposited. Allegedly, the boss did everything right and this is something in the payroll company. But his stuff is getting crazy and everyone is out on PTO, I’m kinda like: meet minimum ethical obligations and no more. Once or twice, I understand. But this is becoming regular.
Infosys I've joined infosys and I have some queries.
1. I know my manager name as mentioned in infyme app but how can I contact him?
2. Holiday calendar is different for every infosys DC?
I’m really concerned about this company if the “head of global well-being” is having a full blown panic attack about returning to work following a holiday 🤨
Found myself in a conversation with the branch manager (white male pushing thru his late 60's) about holiday decorations. I just told him how I've been directed by corporate to keep the winter holiday decorations as non denominational and he nearly exploded. Starts saying how Christmas is the "American Way" and "nobody is going to take MY Christmas" and "this is MY BRANCH, I will decorate for CHRISTMAS" and so much more. I'm just flabbergasted, frustrated but not surprised.
Tax friends, putting in my notice post 10/15. Is it frowned upon to take a PTO day during that two week notice?
I have an offer for a newly created collections strategy project manager at a mid sized credit union for $95k, 7-9% bonus, and 3 weeks PTO.
I did ask to go up to $100k, but was told my offer was already above the target range.
I like the company and my colleagues to be.
How much should I charge a friend to watch 4 dogs at their home over Christmas weekend (2 nights)? The dogs don't have any special needs or medications. I've dog sat for other people in the past but always for free. I also have had dogs of my own for most of my life. I want to start charging people for my services but also want to be reasonable since this is a friend and don't plan to charge a holiday fee. We live in St. Louis. Would $40 per day/night be reasonable?

For moms having their second, third etc child during this pandemic, how did you decide who was going to watch/take care of your older children when you were giving birth?

I don’t know if any family members will quarantine if need be or if anyone will actually do what we want them too. My husband told me it will be fine but we can’t expect
