Is it possible to designate your last day of employment over a holiday? Say Thanksgiving this year (11/26/2021) to take advantage of the holiday benefit and get that paycheck?

Sure you can. But, there’s no guarantee your employer will accept it. The employer may terminate your employment the very next day, if they choose. They may also terminate you early and give you 2 weeks pay. It’s totally up to them. Which is why you need to be prepared for all possibilities when you give your notice.

Make it Monday, 11/29/2021. You get paid for the holiday and almost a full month of pay.

Wouldn’t your last day have to be a work day? So make it some time the week after the holiday.

Yup

Good morning, Salesforce! I know this is a pretty general ask but could anyone who works in Finance at Salesforce shed some light on work life balance in the org? How often do you find yourself working on the weekends? Do you actually get to use your vacation?

Need advice is this healthy behavior? It strikes me as possessive and toxic. MIL & FIL are demanding husband and I go on a trip with them and brother in law as a family.

Flipped out at dinner last bright because we want to do NYEs together as a couple instead of go on a trip with them + extended family to middle of nowhere canadA. Started gossiping about us on the other side of the room, in front of extended family.

PSA: if you’re having holiday parties this season, consider hosting a canned food drive for your local food shelter. It’s easy - just search & register on your city’s food bank website and they provide all the bins & instructions. You can ask each guest to bring 1 non perishable food item. Attached is an example for Houston

Going from audit to advisory to a competitive firm after 1 year of audit. However, start date is not until Jan 10 at new firm. When do I put in my 2 weeks given the holiday break and busy season beginning? Note: I’m not looking for a “take three weeks off as a mental break” type solution. My wife is still in grad school, so I’m the only earner and we will have lots of loans soon. so even missing 2-3 weeks of pay is missing out on a big opportunity of loan pay down.

I read somewhere that MBB have a “moral veto” clause where any consultant can opt out of a case if it violates their own sense of morality. An example might be a vegan taking on a meat processing client. Can anyone verify? Is this formalised or just a cultural thing?
