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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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
