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

Any tropical vacation destination ideas with a 1 year old? I want to plan a vacation - either Caribbean or Central America I think - that’s a bit adventurous but also relaxing. Please send ideas if you have any. (I’m currently thinking Costa Rica)
Would you bring your partner to your work holiday party? I meant, I’m not in the closet, but I don’t declare that I’m gay to everyone at work, like straight people don’t do. I’m wondering if I should bring my partner, go there solo, or just not go.
Recently received comparable offers to Capgemini Invent and Accenture Strategy (comparable title, pay, vacation days). Now what 🐟? Thoughts? Other points to consider?
Is time off/vacation and sick time negotiable with WPP? Specifically Ogilvy NY prior to accepting an offer? Heard it’s only 10 days of PTO. That’s crazy 🥴

If somebody were to put in their 2 week notice prior to the Holiday shutdown, would you get paid for the holidays or would they terminate your employment once you log off for break?
What's the etiquette around reminders about pre-Thanksgiving emails/tasks/etc? On one hand, I don't want to be the guy who emails people a reminder at 8am on the Monday after the holiday weekend as if they weren't busy, but on the other hand, the people had 1-3 business days (after considering PTO and holiday time, because the tasks are from the 19th and 22nd) to handle or reply, and they have not yet.
Work holiday party dress ideas?
What's a reasonable amount of vacation time to take off each year? Feeling guilty when I use my time, and also feel the expectation is to be checking in.
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 is on your holiday wish list? My SO is asking me to give him gift ideas but I feel like I have everything I need and can’t think of what I would ask for (~$500). Would love to get some inspiration from you all on what you’re looking at!
So real talk, what's the culture like at GUT? Are the people nice? Mentorship happening? How much of Miami would I actually be able to enjoy?
Have a little over an hour in LAX to clear customs and make my connection. Too bad the brain surgeon driving the jet bridge can't figure it out and I'm stuck on my arriving plane. #unitedsucks

Hey Fishbowl, I’m looking to pivot into consulting. I have a job interview coming up with Deloitte for an IT audit senior consultant role. Was wondering what the compensation band/salary range would be at that level? I have 5 YOE between audit and compliance and live in a HCOL city.
I have a pyramid event tomorrow but I feel sick and I have a severe cold. Tickets have been purchased already, I am 100% certain it’s not covid because I took a test already. However, I don’t want to get anyone sick with cold. How do I handle this situation? Is it possible to let them know I can’t attend because of my cold even if the tickets have been purchased? I feel bad.

How many people changed careers or wanted to change careers as soon as you returned from maternity leave? You or people you know? I couldn’t care less about advertising right now. Does that feeling go away?
By close of eyes is not a reasonable time for any deliverable to be due. You work from home not 24/7. Let’s normalize standard working hours; if work isn’t done within eight to nine hours in day then it’s time for evaluate systems, if all those Zoom calls were necessary and staff utilization.
Looking to lateral to another firm. I’m a 3rd year at a mid size firm. Any advice/insight on what a firm requires when applying/interviewing.
