How do you spread your vacation days out over the course of the year?

I generally try to plan one vacation that is at least a week long. Then I look at all the known days (weddings, events, etc.). After that I plan for 1-2 days at Thanksgiving and Christmas each. The rest of the time (which there may not be if I take longer than a week for one vacation) I spread out and try to use more as a last minute thing whenever I feel like really I need a day off.

Just returned from my combined family vacation with my SO. I initially thought it would be a great idea to being our parents along to show them a new country and give back for everything they’ve given us in life. Fast forward I’m more exhausted than before the vacation. My mother has been toxic all the way and didn’t miss out on a single opportunity to criticize my relationship. My in-laws were either talking all the time about random stuff or fighting between each other. Continuing…

What's the etiquette around reminders about pre-Thanksgiving emails/tasks/etc?

Interviewing with a small internal strat team (currently 3 FTEs) led by the CSO. One VP was awesome, Ex MBB really energetic/excited is with 1.5 yrs in tenure. Then interviewed with the other VP and Manager. They weren’t great, overall not quite at the same level as the VP in terms of professionalism and pedigree. They were very tactical and felt more like middle managers without vision. The latter two seem to have grown up in the company (3-4 years)

Late post but I’m thankful for the Controller who made the big4transparency.com website! It may have helped a few souls realize they’re underpaid and looked for greener pastures which then contributed to the movement in the market and therefore the firms’ drive to make compensation competitive. I hope everyone updates the sheet with their adjusted comps in the past few months to make it more recent!

Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?
