Im a second yr at a firm with a "flexible vacation policy" how many days would be acceptable to take off? I have never taken a day off and im on track to bill over 2200 hours (1900 requirement).
Help! Being offered 265k base at a competing firm at SM with more pto, more bonus potential and in general better benefits, but longer path to partner. Sounds like my firm is willing to counter at $260k. I’m about 3 years from partner here with a decent but not amazing network. Thoughts?
I met on Tinder 4 this ago. We’ve been seeing each other pretty much every day since our first date and this this weekend we went abroad for a short trip. Everything was fine and we had a good time. We have not labeled our relationship but he said he’s not seeing anybody else (neither am I). But, while on holiday, I noticed he was still on tinder. What does this mean? Is he just “checking” or is it a sign that he’s not into me?
Does everyone have a vacation home EXCEPT me? Chime in — good investment/bad? How often used? Kids? Pets?
Being from a Protestant background, my celebrated holiday is Christmas, and I don’t have experience in celebrating others. Some of my colleagues celebrate Hanukkah, and I’d like to give them gifts in a way that is comfortable to them, but I’m not sure what that is. Anyone have experience with how I might do this? Am I overthinking this?
I am new to fishbowl and recently got an offer from Publicis Sapient for a senior associate. They are offering $136k with unlimited pto benefits. As I am from the industry and haven't heard about this company before, I would like some comments or thoughts about working for this company? How do they invest in their employees (like pay raise, promotions, etc)?
I took PTO in early Mar and now taking PTO in late May, 1 week each. Am I being unreasonable? Assume there is someone that can handle the workload without me he just has to do 1.5x the work same as I do when he’s gone and the team is being told months in advance.
Which company is giving optional holiday or Holiday from 27th to 31st dec 2021?
Conducting a survey. Your answers will be really helpful.
Please share your thoughts on what to do : got a decent offer from company A, $18k over my current pay. Have fast track interview tomorrow with company B. Expect similar package as company A. Will go out of country for vacation for two weeks, company C (big 4) is scheduling interviews in 2 weeks. Just had initial talk with Company D recruiter this morning. Role at A/B/D are senior tech roles while company C is a senior manager role. TBC below.
Is it a bad look to take a week vacation only 2 months after I took a week off? (Current engagement will be over)
Anyone working at starcom, how generous are they with holidays/summer days off, PTO, benefits , 401k matching etc
Looking to give my 2 week notice on the 18. Will that cover 2 week pay from December 21-January 1 since a portion of those days are during the holiday?
My firm is implementing an unlimited PTO policy so for those of you who’s companys already have it - do you like it, how does it work, and what is the max number of days that you would take off?
Leaving for a week vacation and feeling stressed about taking this much time off consecutively. Only in finance.
How do you feel about public holiday gatherings? I felt like such a crummy mother for not taking my kids out to see a parade or fireworks yesterday. But then with the tragedy in Illinois and (on a much smaller scale) the number of local fires because of fireworks (which are banned in my town, btw), I feel so much safer having my kids at home.
So I need help ! I received an offer for director position at pharma. How do I negotiate my offer? They are asking if I will be moving away from stock options, bonus and vacation. Can I lie about my bonus even though I have already received it? Will it convince them to give me a signing offer? Let me know please

I started a new job and at the same time entered a depressive episode coupled with an unhealthy and stressful new living situation. The end result has been a terrible performance review that I’m worried is going to follow me around in this job. I’ve already put in for emergency time off and I go to therapy, but I don’t know what else to do. I can’t seperate what’s mental health and what’s actually wrong/what I have control over anymore.
Do you use the same carry on luggage for work when traveling for vacation? If not, what brand do you use?

I filed my STEM OPT report late this year due to delays from the legal team and my intl advisor encouraged me to retain proofs in case I get in trouble filing for h1b or green card in the future.
