How is your vacation request structured. Does it include your days off, or are days off a separate request? We are required to request days off separate from our vacation, making it a 2 step process.
Is it rude to tell my best friend I want my own hotel room with my fiance when we attend a best friend couples destination wedding? The price is cheaper with more people in a room. She’s the only single one left out of the bunch.. feel bad.. but I value vacation time with my future hubs since were always so busy.
Need some vacation advice. I’m at an all-inclusive that was billed as “luxury”, but food and service are mediocre, the resort is run down, and we’ve had mult instances with other guests making drunken scenes. My wife and I have been doing the all-inclusive route for a while now and I think we’ve come to the conclusion that we need to just go to an expensive, pay as you go resort to get the food, service, and higher caliber of guests. Suggestions on such a place? Carribean preferred. Thanks.
Work Holiday party appropriate, styled like this with boots? I know it’s probably too soon but this came up as I was browsing for dresses and wanted to get it while it was available!
Why are salaries in Europe so much lower vs the US? US compensation is literally double the one in Europe.. Even in big cities like London and Paris. Not to mention the redicolous amounts paid in Spain or Italy
What's your firm's time entry policy? Recently was told we had to release our time daily or we could lose our PTO. Before this we had to release it once a week. Anyone else have such a policy?
🙋♂️Who isn't done (or hasn't even started) their holiday shopping? I blame the demands of teaching!
All right, Partners. You make a lot of money. We know it. You know it. Clients know it. All the Partners I've seen are very modest and down to earth. But tell us how you spurlge! Where are the ones with Ferraris, Lambos, a $10M house in LA, or an NYC penthouse? Show us your Pateks or ⛵! Curoius to see how you all spend your high income. Don't be shy...
Planning to take time off work (quit) to travel and explore life. I have money saved but would love to do contract/gig type work while traveling (maybe 10-30 hours a week depending upon what I have going on) to stay busy and have some type of income. I currently work in data and analytics consulting. Any ideas on how I could approach finding work while working remote and out of the country? Open to any ideas!
TFW your friend from high school instagrams a generic "going on vacation" pic of their passport/ticket and you immediately notice they're zone 6 coach with no frequent flier number added...
Is there a video conferencing platform that simulates virtual networking well? Not zoom breakout rooms. I’m thinking more like lots of dynamic rooms that people can always see who is in that room and then freely come and go. In-person equivalent would be like networking circles at a cocktail reception and you migrate from circle to circle based on interest or holiday parties based on wanting to catch up with those people.
Don't you just love when a parent comes in to say that they're going on vacation for more than a week and need all of the worksheets/activities we'll be doing right this minute? I'm just trying to prepare for tomorrow! How many teachers have all of thei copies made for weeks in advance????
Hi! For people who have started with EY US recently, how long did it take you from signing the offer, completing background check, to transferring H1B visa? I'm supposed to start in mid-Jan and trying to gauge the timeline so I can put in notice with my current company and plan other stuff. Given that holiday is coming and EY immigration seems pretty slow. TIA!
Can I title my vacation property under my LLc ? We purchased the property recently and are making rental money on it. Is there a way we can transfer it to our LLC ? We want to take advantage of taxes
Is BEC doable with 8 days of studying? I will be studying all day as I am taking vacation.
Hi Mamas, trigger warning… we have lost our baby at 23 weeks. I’ve already told everyone at work about the pregnancy… anyone who has gone through this, how did you tell people what happened? We’ve told our close family what has happened and it was so hard…. I am dreading telling other people… my mind right now is - do I send out a note? Do I just have my admin let my LT know? Do I just take my time off and let folks assume?
I just got an offer for a project management role in LS that’s +50% of my current salary! WLB trade off seems like it’ll really suck though. Any tips on negotiating PTO or flex work? Currently I’ll have about 8 weeks this year because of PTO rollover with 25 days standard yearly and they offered me 15 days. I work fully remote and this offer is expected full time in the office “once we are able and everyone feels comfortable”. I live away from my family so working remote has been important to me

Girl on my project picks whatever airline is cheapest every week. Does she think whoever saves the firm the most money gets an award?

Happened a few months ago, but the moment you noticed you won't make top status due to a client on the same coast. #nomorefreeskyclub 😭😭😭
