Hi Fishes, need your advice.
I have the below offers. My only priority is WLB and org culture. Money is of the least importance. (Mentioning the CTC so that you get an idea)
Tech: Power BI, SQL,ETL
YEO : 4.5
1. H&R Block - 16.8 + 80k VP and 50K JB.
2. EY GDS - 18 LPA + 1 L VP + 1L JB.
3. Deloitte India - 19 LPA plus 1L JB.
Now, I'm inclined to join H&R Block for the below reason;
32 DAYS PAID LEAVE/yr + 1 week holiday in July.
This means I work for 10.5 months a year and get paid for 12.


Are your kids checked out already? Are you checked out? What are you looking forward to most during the holiday break?

What are the best pieces to include in your "book"?

BACKGROUND: I transitioned from medical copy editing (7 years) to medical content/news writing (2 years) to pharma/medical copywriting (1.5 years). I'm currently a senior copywriter for FCB working on a new drug launch. I've created the Day 0 splash page (US), brand style guide (global), HCP and patient Day 1 & Day 14 emails (US), and an HCP Thought Leader Liaison slide deck. My journey has been non-traditional so I don't have a book per se.


Did any of you have a combined holiday party with the CSPs?

I am currently a social worker with Fresenius Medical Care in DC. Does anyone else work for Fresenius and if so what is yours salary?


Please clarify for me. I say if the salary for the position is $52,000, that's what you include when posting the job opening. Ie: Marketing Assistant: $52K. My supervisor says no, the salary is actually 74,000, because she's including health benefits and PTO on top of the 52.. I said if you post 74,000 and the person finds out it's actually 52 (probably with a take home pay of only 38) they will walk. Who's right?


Do you bring your work phone or laptop on vacation with you? Going away with partner for first time since covid hit and we both want to leave our work phones behind.


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?

Going to Tahoe to ski in Feb. I have the option of a 1.5 layover in PHX or 3.5 hours in AUS.

Is 1.5 hours enough in PHX for bags to transfer? I really don’t want my ski equipment to miss the transfer but 3.5 hours seems overkill. My layovers will both be around 5pm local time if that matters.

Eventhough I have sent rejection mail to the HR yesterday night that I won't be joining Them they are still sending me welcome and onboarding mails. My friend is saying don't pick any of their calls.
What could be the consequences ? Will they black list me for future opportunities ? Please suggest..


Absolutely rubbish management and appraisal cycle, after 10 months of rating and reviews, hikes are just announced, not even disclosed how much % for how much rating. They just kill your interests by giving you a support project where there is no growth in your earlier career days when you need them the most and want employees to to work for 10 hours.
