Do you feel like your partner determines so much of your mood? My usual one is on PTO and I'm currently partnered with one that I just don't work well with. I'm so irritable as a result.

If anyone is looking to make the jump out of consulting, FBI is hiring Forensic Accountants across the country on fbijobs.gov. My friend was able to get a salary match and match on her PTO and loves the mostly 40 hour work weeks and overtime/comp time if she goes over that.
24/m I’m feeling really on edge lately. I’m not sure why. I literally yelled like a lunatic at the teams notification sound a few minutes ago
I’m not sure what’s wrong. But I think I’m frustrated with work and maybe the city I live in. I moved far away and I made a few friends but not a lot. I took a vacation a few weeks ago and thought it would help but I think it made it worse. It’s so cold outside that it’s hard to exercise. What would you all suggest
Been in US for the last 7 years. Currently in two minds on whether to stay here or move back to India. Every time I go back home for a vacation, it’s getting harder to come back to US (1/2)
Saying no to extra work, taking planned vacations,
maintaining a good work life balance, leaving the office on
time, taking time off if you're not well...
..does not mean you are not a hard worker.
It just means you have a life beyond work as well. And that is
It took me a while to realize this.
Do not make the same mistake.
Junior associate with deal closing tomorrow. Partner said that I need to cover for part of the day (despite the fact that I said I’m taking off for Yom Kippur) cause said partner is golfing. Also had to cancel a vacation for said partner a month ago. Sign to leave?
Are there any restrictions on how much time you can stay outside the country while on H1B? I want to combine 5 wk PTO with my paternity leave and go to India for 3 months next year. Is that going to create any issues with my H1B status ?
I work at a new, small firm. We get 10 days of PTO. For family/medical leave, we get 20 days paid and then 20 days unpaid. But policy says we have to take our PTO concurrently with paid family/medical leave. That’s weird, right? It’s like you end up losing paid leave days. It makes sense to do it concurrently with unpaid leave but not paid leave, right?
Please clarify for me. I say if the salary for the position is $52,000, that's what you include when posting the job opening. Ie: Marketing Assistant: $52K. My supervisor says no, the salary is actually 74,000, because she's including health benefits and PTO on top of the 52.. I said if you post 74,000 and the person finds out it's actually 52 (probably with a take home pay of only 38) they will walk. Who's right?
Morning! Being laid off sux, I been down this road 5x in my career it never bets easier.
Dust off contacts and make your rounds
* if you’re in a good position to take time off do some, seems we all need a mental break anyway
Tell me if this is selfish or not. I adore my family, but since they're doing a very lowkey Christmas situation this year, I really would rather take a weeks vacation on my own. Obviously the holidays are about spending time with those you love, but I'm tired! And I see my entire family at least once a month for a group dinner. Am I a bad daughter/sister if I choose vacation this one time?
Hey guys - I’ve recently returned to work from 8 months of maternity leave. I love where I work but some things I experienced while away made returning to work not as easy as it could have been. I want to help similar colleagues and also help the business with retention of staff so I’m volunteering to work on a maternity leave communication strategy with our HR Director. My question for you is - what did you or didn’t you like about how your work treated you when you had time off to have kids?
Dunno if any others in IB can relate to me
I've been going through a rough time personally and have severe depression. But given we're still early in the year, and I think also the keener in me, I'm somehow hesitant to take time off to give myself a mental health break because what would 1-2 days off really do?
A bit off topic: Suggestions on ideas for things to do on a long weekend from NYC? Hoping to take some vacation days this year (as I, like many, took just a couple of days off last year)... open to renting a car. Thank you!!
Hi…question for CVS workers, how many days of pto a new employee usually gets? Thank you
Hey guys, do you have a knack for planning stuff. You may have a hidden gift for Project/Program Management. The skill sets needed are similar to planning a move or a vacation. Those include pre-planning activities, budgeting, collaboration, negotiating etc.
This great resignation thing is REAL lol

What do you tell your direct reports when you’re leaving the company? Backstory: New team - everyone has been hired within the last 3-9 months. I have a large team of direct reports, all of whom I have a great work relationship with. I know they respect me and will be nervous / sad to see me go. But my boss is incredibly difficult to work with, I don’t have faith in leadership and the culture, and my discipline isn’t respected. How would you handle it when you announce?
