Is Hill holiday NY all healthcare clients?
I got horribly bitten by mosquitoes during the holiday weekend. Though the scars from those bites on my face have lightened since then they are still pretty visible. Any recommendations for something that would help fade them faster?
We have a fixed PTO time plan (very generous) but leftover rates by now are enormous. It’s gonna be about 160 hours of unused PTO per employee in the end of the year, and we only rollover 80. We thought about rolling over everything, but then accruals get too high. Does anyone have creative ideas how we can roll over excessive hours and don’t make them wages at the same time...

I’m sure this has been asked before—but how do you get through work when going through a breakup with a long term SO? I have a new male boss & cant really tell him what’s going on.

My dog is the biggest mamas boy. We will be out of town for a week soon and when we took this vacation last year, he wouldn't walk with anyone but me. I want my cousins kids to be able to walk him this year, any ideas on how to do this?
A resource I'm overseeing is ghosting PTO hours - i.e. not charging any for half days or lumping in 45 hours for M-Th with 0 hours on Friday. Is this something you'd escalate to management?
So, even though I'm on vacation in the mountains, drinking scotch under the stars, & remembering my brothers/sisters in arms (+ the customary bashing each other's branch), I still make time 4 u mofos.
Finally taking a vacation (granted only the weekend) and now getting blown up to work during it - and all at the same time getting shit from superiors for not being flexible. Like wtf, I’m working on a holiday/vacation weekend...What more do they want? What y’all doing in this case?
Does it make sense to ask Amazon if I can start start work in two months ? I want to use all my vacation (4.5 weeks) and 1 month sabbatical before leaving my current employer.
Is unlimited PTO a curse or a blessing!

I’m seeing so many graduates from the U.K. advertising schools with LinkedIn resumes full of 1-2 years of ‘Creative Placements’ at the big agencies. Is it really normal to intern for that long?

Am I missing something? I’ve picked up Four Roses bottlings at various price points ($30-$90) and I find it consistently burn-your-gag-reflex-and-choke unpleasant regardless of age. I swear it makes me cough every time I drink it, and I don’t find this in other bourbons from my stash (Blantons, Michters, Makers, Knob Creek, Bulliet). It’s not an ABV issue either as I’ve enjoyed many cask-strength bottles. What’s with the Four Roses love?
