🎄How do you plan to recharge over the holiday? Are you taking time off? Do you plan to reset or rest at all before the New Year?
What are some easy to make, low stress holiday meals for a school holiday staff party? I was "volunteered" by our principal to set it up this year (🙄). I'm making decorated sugar cookies but kind of drawing a blank when it comes to savory dishes. Bonus points if you have any adult holiday themed games or fun drinks to suggest! It's off school property and there will be a bar (thank god), for context.
Why does Deloitte penalize its employees for paid time off? Is it fair that the denominator of our utilization doesn't account for PTO?
I wonder, why everyone is not applying for FAANG and they’re happy with startups or other companies? (Not talking about who are not able to clear the interviews )
Does everyone here accurately track their weekly non billable hours? I only include BD and holidays/PTO when appropriate. Should I be tracking time spent on WBLs, company events, travel, etc?
How far in advance would you get to DCA with holiday traffic? I usually get there an hour/hour and half before boarding time.

Taking some time off over the next few weeks and decided to start potty training my two year old. Any tips/tricks that have worked for any moms on here? TIA! :)
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.
Aside from all the usual benefits like paid vacation time, health insurance, 401k matching program, have you ever seen a truly unique business perk?
hi doston, in my project my lead has fixed sun-mon as off for me. Aur ab diwali hi hai monday ko toh bol raha hai ki you wont get additional holiday as you are not working on diwali. Can anyone help me i think i am being tricked into wasting one day off. Please give your guidance mitron.
Finally hit my breaking point. Been nothing but irritable & pissed off these past few weeks. Coach asked me on Friday when I’ll be taking time off & I just broke down. I’m a top performer & a workhorse. I’ve put so much effort into making sure my team is okay I forgot about myself. Now I am buried in work, performance is dropping & I can’t stop crying randomly. I kept telling people I am drowning but no one was listening. Coach is leaning to tell everyone to backoff thankfully.
Looking for a vacation home/weekend rentals next weekend in any of the western suburbs, preferably Naperville. Any ideas on alternative sites to search? Not too many options on Airbnb or vrbo
HR or Payroll:
I had resigned from a job a few weeks ago. I’m entitled to 2 weeks (10 days) of vacation pay. I used 1.5 since January 1st. Will I be paid out the vacation pay that I earned from Jan-June, or the full 8.5 days that I would’ve had left?
How does your firm deal with underperforming associates? We are crazy busy but have a couple first-years on vacation, 50-100 hours per month, and thinking we are a "lifestyle" firm. I don't want to just fire them, at least not yet, but I want to see a change. How many second chances do you give? How many months under budget?
Is it unethical as realtors working in an office to block chunks of time off for personal reasons? Some of my coworkers stay in their desks for up to 10 hours, but I've taken up the habit of blocking at least 1 hour daily for lunch, breaks, and other issues that may arise. Do you do this as well or do you prefer to work straight through your day?
Any idea is the vacation reward policy extended for this year as well? After june 2022? @Pwc AC/SDCPwC
Does your firm have an employee resource group at work for women or other minorities? Mine doesn't and I'm wondering if it's awkward to just walk up to other women at the office and ask them if they want to get together. I think it'd be useful to have a place to discuss the things we're dealing with at work and how we feel at the firm. Would you join an ERG at your firm for women if there was one?
I loathe tax, I want to work to live not live to work. Switching fields means starting all over again. I feel torn. Anyone have success stories? Advice?
