One of my favorite perks at salesforce is that we get 56 hours a year of volunteer time off (and really good donation matching). What other companies have something similar?
Hello: I received my last pay stub but have not received my PTO balance yet. Will it come in the upcoming pay period? Can someone help me with this question please? Thank you!
What’s a good travel backpack that can double as a nice comfortable day hike backpack as well? Any deals that you’ve seen this holiday seen would be great to hear about them too, TIA :)
How many days of PTO does PwC have?
I’m excited for next week’s “vacation” so I can just be depressed by myself and sleep till I never wake up and no one bothers me with constant work pings
After a year of unemployment post-college Ive now been working as an Assistant MP for 2 full months and have officially started feeling burnout. Haven’t taken PTO yet. Today and this past week have been ROUGH, despite the average work load. Actually overslept for the first time today. Anyone have tips for motivation? Feeling a bit of shock setting in as my routine changed so rapidly. I really just wanna ensure that I can keep the motivation needed to move up in the industry long term. Thanks :)
When a recruiter asks you, in the middle of a screening, how long it would take you to start before being given an offer, what's a reasonable timeframe? I want time to 1) get and compare with other ops, 2) time to give notice to my team, and 3) a bit of vacation time in between jobs. But I don't want to be ridiculous.
I’ve barely had any time off in the past several months and my SO wants to visit his sis this weekend. Spending the entire weekend there, sleeping on an air mattress doesn’t feel relaxing to me. Help
My SO picked up a part time master program two years ago. It was fine before the pandemic because we had trips planned and he could take breaks. However, he has been working nonstop since the pandemic. We haven’t had any real vacation. He told me he feels burnt out from work and stressed from school. What can I do to help? I suggested him taking a couple of emergency days off, which he did.
How to navigate 2 weeks notice? Have a start date set with a start up for 9/20, submitted background check today, with the Holiday it’ll probably be back on Tuesday which makes 2 weeks a little short.. Should I wait and give 9 business days notice of leaving my job or risk it and give 2 weeks prior to background check clearing?
If you're getting laid off, do you think the firm will allow you to "stay employed" and let you take your pto instead of paying in out just so it gives you time to find a job while "still employed"?
I'm not moving this year and I don't have kids to take care of. How can I use my personal days to ensure I get all of my PTO?
Are your firms still giving you Memorial Day and Independence Day off? We are getting Memorial Day, but Independence Day might be a floating holiday, due to the 7/15 tax deadline.
I know with WFH there is really nowhere else to go, but work has been driving me crazy and I haven’t taken any time off since February. Would it be unreasonable of me to ask for a week off in the next few weeks to celebrate my SO’s birthday and to just decompress? For background, I’m part of a very small in-house team which makes it harder for me to not feel guilty for taking time off. I also have been dreading asking my boss this question and feel like if I don’t ask now, it’ll never happen...
I had my Amazon loop last week on Thursday. Today (Friday) would be 5 business days since Monday was a holiday. Recruiter said yesterday that a result is imminent. It's now almost 5pm pacific and no update. Is it bad news for sure now? Should I email recruiter again?
Didn’t even realize tomorrow was a holiday until all of my friends with normal people jobs and hours were talking about having off
Following the Gates divorce announcement, what’s your take on this? Apparently he also takes his ex girlfriend on weeklong Spring vacation every year... https://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-news/bill-gates-insisted-taking-ex-24035163

Sitting at a bar waiting to go to a concert. Manager texts me "Call me". Ignore or call? 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔
Does anyone else’s hotel room shower just not get hot enough? I don’t want to just shower, I want to boil off the evil from the day
Anyone work any part-time weekend jobs? Have some big expenses coming up that won't necessarily be covered by my primary role and curious to hear some anecdotes.
A coworker of mine just got a standing desk at work. First I laughed it off... but now I find myself peering enviously over 😒
Any Kearney fish willing to provide a referral? Saw a posting. Can share my quick BG profile! Thanks in advance!
I am having a midweek, long outstanding argument with my SO about the money that she spent during the holidays tipping our doormen. We moved into our apartment in Manhattan 6-mo before Christmas. TBC
Reading the meeting agenda 10 seconds before the meeting only to find out you have to present... And still killed it
I'm starting to rack up a bunch of United miles, as I have to fly Lufthansa a lot these days (and credit to UA). Never had status with them. From what I see online, their top statuses (cont.)
Has anyone been put on a PIP and successfully gotten through it? Seeking advice & support on how to navigate this. Please no jokes or jabs.
