Hi, we are currently updating our Apprenticeship Policy and I wanted to understand what other organisations offer in regards to: 1. Rewards for exam passes 2. Holiday allowance during study Any detail would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Why is it that every time I try to take time off EVERY TEAM pops out of the woodwork for something to do before I leave? Even the quiet teams. It’s Monday and I’ve already logged 20 hours for the week.
I heard most of us are off for some holiday next week, so enjoy the day off to prepare for the holiday!
How is RSM PTO? Understand it’s unlimited, which limits more than accrued, but any insight on what you like/dislike?
Reminder to everyone: use your 2021 vacation time. Don’t let it pass you by just because you’re not traveling. Take a long weekend once a month to nap and eat chips in sweat pants all day. We all need to do our part to normalize self care, and sitting at home doing “nothing” is just as worthy of a vacation day as pina coladas on the beach.
Hi all. Posted this in a different bowl and not getting any replies. Hoping you all can help. What benefits are smaller companies (under 50 employees) offering? How much pto? How big of a contribution to health, dental? Any spousal or dependent coverage? Any other less common benefits? Basically looking for ways to remain competitive to the degree possible with larger employers. Thanks!
What are you doing for holiday gifting?
I've noticed that a lot of angel group meetings happen during the work day. My understanding is that most angels have other day jobs. Do people just take time off work to go to these meetings? Are most angels entrepreneurs themselves?
Does the denominator for utilization rate take into account PTO? So if I am allowed 4 weeks of vacation time and (rounded) 10 holidays, is the denominator 2080 or 1840 (2080-80 for holidays - 200 PTO)?
Do I tell my manager I’m leaving the company before their 5 day birthday PTO or after? If I tell, it would be the day before their last day. If I hold on to it will be 2 weeks before my last day. I want to help interview for replacement if they want me to. Also wrapping up my project and Demi going into surge support work, which I expect to do while they’re OOO.
Been at my current company for over 10 years, been remote for the last 2 and they are pushing to get everyone back in the office. I have no intentions of ever going back to a cubicle or a shared computer station… Since I’ve been at my current company a long time, I’ve built up quite a bit of vacation annually, in your experience, how willing are companies to negotiate on annual vacation? What’s “too much” to ask for?
I know this varies based on the company but besides project needs from the hiring manager, does anybody take multiple months between when your background check clears and you actually start? I don’t want to immediately jump from job to job but not sure if taking some time off is generally accepted.
Everyone’s holiday party looks so lit on snap 😩😩😩 ..hey 🐠 s can I crash one of your holiday parties, I mean we’re all consultants I can fit in.
Need gift ideas! I’ve been crashing at two of my good friend’s place for the past month and a half and I want to get something to thank them for letting me stay/holiday gift. Budget probably in the $100–150 range combined for both of them. They are both pretty outdoorsy 24 year olds so I was thinking something along those lines but can’t think of anything. All I have so far is a nice bottle of scotch. Please help!
I purchased something from a high street store online and it arrived in the post with the security tags. Given it is now lockdown in the UK and stores are closed, no way to get it taken off. Anyone had similar experiences and how best to proceed short of just calling them up and asking for a new item?
Is QEF inclusion dividend or not? Sometimes, I see QEF inclusion reported on Line 11i and sometimes on Line 6a. I think we can rely on Sec. 1293(c) but I think it’s not foolproof. My hunch is since QEF regime is tailored to treat the PFIC similar to domestic mutual funds, we should not treat the QEF inclusion as dividends. Any help is appreciated.

Promotion from Manager to SM grade - how much of a jump in compensation is it in general?
Upstairs neighbor is super loud because he has full hard wood floors and walks around like he doesn’t care. I knocked on his door for the first time and told him he’s being super loud and asked him to be more mindful. He agreed, but I don’t think it’s going to change since he’s just walking. My complex has an 80% carpet rule that he’s not following (I literally saw nothing but hardwood floor in his place when he opened his door). I’m trying not to be a Karen about it, but my whole apartment…

I don’t really know what consultants do…like MBB, what do you guys do? Don’t mean this in on offensive way, generally never gave it thought. If someone asked me, I’d say “companies hire them to do a bunch of market research and advise on what business decisions they should make”. What do you do all day? I just think of a bunch of PowerPoint decks - why are you all so busy?
