I have the next 20 days off from work and in an extreme lockdown in Germany. What can I do to stay productive, learn, grow/ build a hobby from home? I'm 25 and do not want to waste this vacation doing nothing at home
Deloitte my S&A offer has 23 vacation days. Will I actually be able to use any of that? Does it count against my utilization? What’s the cultural expectation around using PTO?
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
What’s worse? One week notice or two week notice then go on vacation for those last two weeks??

Help! Need high end Marriott property for a beachy/relaxing vacation in late Oct (using points). Reservation at Solaz Los Cabos was cancelled due to infrastructure issues that shut down hotel indefinitely! What are the best properties out there?! Ideally in North America.
What’s the “last straw” that prompted you to start looking for other jobs? I’ll start - I put in my vacation for this entire week, more than a month ago. It was on the team calendar and people were made aware. Friday of last week, my manager says “hey I’m taking 3 weeks off so I’ll need you to cover for me next week. Youre the only one that knows this platform. You’re working right?”
How is the proposed tax holiday going to work? You don't pay taxes now but owe it by April 15 2021?
Jerusalem or Caribbean cruise (round trip out of PR) over the holiday shut down in December? Cost is not a factor, family is paying for it
I’m sure this has been asked before—but how do you get through work when going through a breakup with a long term SO? I have a new male boss & cant really tell him what’s going on. I’ve been taking PTO scattered. I live alone and NYC Covid winter alone is already feeling so overwhelmingly sad and lonely on top of everything else.
My dog is the biggest mamas boy. We will be out of town for a week soon and when we took this vacation last year, he wouldn't walk with anyone but me. I want my cousins kids to be able to walk him this year, any ideas on how to do this?

Anyone know when holiday layoffs are being scheduled for this year? First week of December or end of January?
We have a fixed PTO time plan (very generous) but leftover rates by now are enormous. It’s gonna be about 160 hours of unused PTO per employee in the end of the year, and we only rollover 80. We thought about rolling over everything, but then accruals get too high. Does anyone have creative ideas how we can roll over excessive hours and don’t make them wages at the same time...

Told an intern at my firm in a different group that reached out to try and join my team that he should be prepared to work 60-70 hours. He smugly laughed and said everyone he knows at our firm works that many hours (we are a B4 and it’s certainly not the case). Then he proceeded to tell me he leads a 10 person workstream. Then he asked me to refer him to managers to get him transitioned into our group. Posting so others can also get a kick out of this.
I have to take a drug test (my first one) for a new job, and it’s described as a “drug and health screening”. Is the health part standard? I understand a drug test, but general health seems invasive.
