When do our vacation days reset? 10/1 or 1/1?
Aside from all the usual benefits like paid vacation time, health insurance, 401k matching program, have you ever seen a truly unique business perk?
Let's support local businesses this holiday season! I'm starting a thread where we can share our favorite small/local businesses we want others to know about!

Has anyone been able to bypass paying a negative PTO balance after they leave? Specifically asking for KPMG
Multiple scrum teams spending time hanging holiday decorations. Yesterday we were told we would have to work on saturdays in january because we are red.
Do you fully disconnect during vacation?
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?
I am an elementary school teacher. My oldest son is feeling drawn to ECE. He loves children, loves to help in vacation bible school, wants to work directly with people to help them. Thoughts?
Has anyone in partner ranks been able to take an actual, fully disconnected vacation of at least a full work week in the last 18 months? Genuinely curious.
Let's start a thread to highlight which industries and/or companies are doing right by their employees this holiday season. Share your job title and what kind of year-end bonus you are getting. (Feel free to share your company's name if you are comfortable doing that)
How may leaves do we get in EY? PTO and sick leave. How many can we roll forward to the next year?
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?
Need a holiday miracle that is getting my i-485 approved…don’t know what else to do besides manifesting
Has anyone bought a property to be a vacation rental income and NOT been successful? If so, what went wrong?
I’m hearing about so many company holiday parties. We’ve never had one and it makes me so bummed out! Is it just my group/dept? Do any of you oracle peeps have a holiday party??
One of those days when your client keeps wanting and demanding more and more than what they are currently paying, and all of your seniors are out on vacation so you have to bear all the brunt of the client's frustration for your team for the rest of the evening 😔

Celebrating a zoom birthday tonight with some brown-drink friends. Second-to-last friend to have a COVID birthday. Can’t wait until we can celebrate in person again with some really special bottles to make up for lost time.
I feel like every company lies about “working your way up.” You’re never allowed to blatantly say that you don’t like your position and you’d like to transition to HR or Finance. It’s almost as if once you get in claims, you’re stuck.
If you’re a manager and you see an employee that wants to branch out into a different department, why would you keep them boxed in for 2+ years?
Are there some background mechanics that I’m missing?
Pretty Man! Be my night 🤗

Not sure about others but I feel like acct management can be a tricky side. Ever since I was an AAE up until now, I never had a manager who taught me things. I just learned on my own and went with it, made mistakes, learned. I sometimes wish I had a mentor or teacher who guided me. I’m already an account group sup but I want to do better and learn. Do you recommend getting a mentor?
Hertz or any rental car corporate codes?

How is your school year going so far? I would like to know if you find another job at a new school and you signed a contract at a collaborative site joined by the district can the administration make stay at the school you signed the contract for?
Me? Addicted to caffeine? No, it’s a necessity
What's a polite way to ask another teacher to stop sharing their home life problems with you? My coworker has been unhappy in her marriage for a long time (she talks about it a lot). It's always been a little awkward, but now her son is in my class which means I see her husband a lot more often at drop off/pick up, and I have to talk to him. It's hard to look him in the eye knowing the stuff his wife has said about him to me, how can I get her to stop without making her feel bad?
I love what I do. But I just want Administration to have our backs. Last semester I had 4-5 unruly students I begged and pleaded for them to get them out of my class. They did nothing for the whole semester. I told the school board I refuse to teach at that school with that administration there. I don't trust them and I have no faith in them Administration is supposed to have our backs.
Whomever wrote about Blended learning must be in Admin.
Just another new slang about the old way of teaching
Me during the trainings today. 😂😂😂
Should have been an email…
I do not know if Socrates actually said this, but in my opinion it is a great rule of thumb: Socrates, the great Greek philosopher, was once stopped by an acquaintance as he passed through the markets.
“I’ve something important to tell you,” he said. “It’s about your friend.”
“That’s very kind of you,” Socrates said. “But, don’t tell me just yet. I run all information through the Three Filters Test to ascertain if I want to know it.”

I don’t think you should feel guilty at all. See this is the problem administrators and parents like to make teachers feel guilty; so that they work harder. The truth is students should be working harder than the teachers.￼
You need time for yourself! Close and enjoy to your vacation . We have to stop buying into this idea that teachers are to put aside their personal life and work every living minute we have. This idea that we are some martyrs is getting out of hand. Yes, we are an important part of society but we are also human. When I started my career I would work all day and get home late but now I have priorities but I recognize that I need to draw a clear line between work and home. It does not help that most of us are working from home but for our own mental health we need to take a break.
You have earned this rest, and you need it!! Teaching during Covid is exhausting to say the least. Don’t feel guilty...your students need you at your best and reenergized ❤️
Do not feel guilty about not doing work, but perhaps encourage your students to take a break and enjoy family. Teach them how wonderful it is to be all caught up so they don’t have to work in their time off. When we perpetuate this standard of working when we should be resting, we are putting that unnecessary pressure on to ourselves as well. Enjoy your down time!! This is what it’s all about ❤️
I keep walking by my computer like it’s apart of the table🤣 Don’t even feel guilty!
Don’t feel guilty! You’ve done your work and if students had kept up, theirs would be finished as well. (I understand there are extenuating circumstances.) It is catch up time for them and rest and relax time for you! Don’t let anyone make you feel guilty!
Lol our admin told us to not touch the computer til Monday.
I haven’t done anything as well. On one hand I feel guilty. On the other, I feel refreshed. So I’m going to take the break and give myself permission to recharge. Happy Thanksgiving!🦃
Nope! Several years ago, I made the conscious decision to create a boundary between home and work for the sake of my family and my mental health! Use this time to rest and rejuvenate!
Good for you!!! Enjoy your break.😉
You are not alone. We could probably work the entire break and never be caught up on all the grading and planning it takes...at least that’s what I keep telling myself. Drink that extra cup of coffee. Watch the Christmas movies. Stay in your pajamas. You deserve it. ☕️ 🎅🏼
I’ve been sick the entire time. I might start to prep Sunday or my kids are working on homework packets I sent home and never left their backpacks. I have a meeting Monday. I’m not too worried about that either. I needed this time off even if it was just to be sick in peace.
Good for you. You need to be sick, in order to get healthy. I’m glad you’re letting your body heal
Wow you get a long break! We have Thursday and Friday then our weekend. Back at it in November 30th / if it weren’t for the excess of students with behaviors I’d have energy to bring to my job. Behavior challenged students zap my energy. I handle it but it comes at a price.
I love that I am in the same position. I’ve been getting Google Classroom notifications for assignments being turned in, and I haven’t touched grading. 😳
That’s a great thing. We as teachers do so much. We need time for ourselves. Don’t feel guilty. Enjoy the rest. Before you know it will be over.
I haven't either. I think it's okay for us to totally escape sometimes! We need it!
You're not alone on this one.
Enjoy the break
I'm the same. I brought home work. Heck i haven't seen it at all
We more than ever deserve this awaited break. Work will never be done even if you think you're done.
I’m right there with you. Now on to the Christmas break countdown
We have earned our time off!!!! Relax and enjoy your famiky!
Had a school dream last night. So it’s getting closer to return time. I was missing data from one of my classes!
I haven't done any schoolwork yet, either. I was focusing on cleaning the house for company, spending time with family, Thanksgiving, and Black Friday Christmas shopping online.
Now I'm stressing about all I have to do for Monday: lesson plans, grading, entering grades, paperwork, etc.
