Gonna be cashing out my PTO since I’m moving to a new job. That’ll be around 7,500 after taxes. Should I just throw it all in VOO or buy some blue chips? Was looking at MSFT or maybe even V
Thoughts on new COVID variant and holiday trips? Undecided on whether to fly or just chill at home. Everything is so uncertain right now, smh.
Is a firm allowed to only give you 1 month notice before they change their PTO policy - they went from 6 weeks PTO and carry over allowed to now starting in January it will be unlimited and obviously carry over would be meaningless. People had saved multiple weeks and didn’t take off in 2021 so they could take that extended time off - they are mentioning that “oh it’s discretionary now so you can take all you want” but I feel like we’re getting cheated and they should have to pay us out balance
Is unlimited pto a scam? (In industry)
Need advice is this healthy behavior? It strikes me as possessive and toxic. MIL & FIL are demanding husband and I go on a trip with them and brother in law as a family. Are mad that we haven’t gone on a vacation together as a family ? Flipped out at dinner last bright because we want to do NYEs together as a couple instead of go on a trip with them + extended family to middle of nowhere canadA. Started gossiping about us on the other side of the room, in front of extended family.
I'm taking off next week. A partner asked if I could do a massive project I said yes but my bandwidth is limited till I get back from vacation. Why do I feel like I did something bad?
Why does trying to figure out my remaining vacation balance on mypeoplelink always leave me feeling like an idiot?
My Toronto peeps how are you handling lockdown a year into it? With work stress at an all time high and no exciting vacation or plans or even vaccine to look forward to I'm really starting to lose it. Seeing how Americans are pretty much back to normal makes it even worse 😩
How much PTO are you taking off for your wedding (and/or honeymoon)? I'm starting a new job and worried and want to take less but also don't want to regret taking more time for my honeymoon.
Boss wants the team to check emails during vacation if entire team is out on PTO at the same time since they want to make sure emails are responded to during that time. Is this reasonable?
I am 8 days post FET and the anxiety is getting to me. Because of the holiday weekend my blood test isn’t until next Monday. When is it safe to do a pee test? If it matters it was a 5-day blast (4AA and PGT-A tested).
If I resign in December and get paid my 2 weeks of unused vacation days will I also get paid for unused sick days?
Is the work culture at reliance bad?
I was interviewed by a company for a client complete 1-2 weeks. I cleared the rounds, they liked my profile but no updates. What shall I do?
If a company is using salary bands and I know them for the levels above me. Can I expect that I will at least receive the minimum of the band or are bands only used for external candidates and internal may receive even less.
3 years work ex and a masters Senior at 106k plus bonus Am I at a good, average or slightly below market pay level?
Hi 🐠! If I had received a 221g in the past, do I need to say “Yes” to have you been refused a visa in the past while filling out the DS-160 form? The visa was approved after they had asked for a few additional documents.
Anyone use Navy Federal Credit Union as their mortgage lender? How long did it take them to close? They are claiming 45-60 day closing right now. Is this true? I can't imagine taking that long to close. I can't see how a seller would agree to that. Thoughts?
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼
I feel sad when the guy I’m dating is downs I know he is going thru his mba program which adds stress and don’t think I’m a rebound from his ex..but I’m not sure if I can cheer him up or what to do
Deloitte is temporarily pausing the PERM application. Just curious what is the condition of the other Big 4 or consulting frims？
When is the next round of Deloitte layoffs?
How do you handle clients asking you to train their people to do your job to replace you? Not opposed to the helping/part but these people have absolutely no background/certification in what you do.
Based out of Atlanta and diamond on Delta (360 this year but unlikely to be next year) and super pissed with the low conversion rates. What other program would you suggest? (Or am I stuck with Delta)
What was the first true asset you bought (positive income generation) and how did you decide on it? Not talking about stocks or 401k, more secondary property to rent, small business, etc. Thanks!
Did a medical check-up since I’m home and family doctor says business has actually been slow. High blood pressure for the first time in my life - I’m glad I know. Encourage others to get checked out just to see how their body is absorbing additional stress.
