Before photo booths were a thing... two colleagues made out in the booth, took their prints of their secret smooch with them only to discover that a link to all the pics would be sent to the entire agency the following morning...

Does anyone work for Children’s medical center of Dallas on this form ? I know we recently had a “employee appreciation” bonus last month before Thanksgiving but not sure if that counts as one whole holiday bonus including Christmas , or it it’s safe to expect another in mid December ? What seems to be the latter in the past ? Any thoughts are appreciated !

The person is inconsistent with their attitude/ service. Ex: One day they are very friendly, the other day is talking on the phone and doesn't open the door. Not professional. Not amazed with the service but don't want to be on bad terms either.

Everyone is hiring at AAE-AS level it seems. And everyone here says “pay more” to get good people. To everyone who has hired or has changed agencies in the last six months, what else made the difference? The specific accounts/brands? PTO policy? Other perks? Personal reco from someone at the agency?

So i work at this company in coimbatore (india) and we have a very poor work life balance. We have a 6 day working policy and no vacation or sick leaves just 1 day casual leave a month. We usualy had to work around 10 to 12 hrs and no leaves even during govt holidays. How can i make them understand this is killing our personal life. I have already shared a couple of emails to hr and CFO of our company to no avail. Please advice on what should I do next

Curious how many people have come across an employer expecting 30 day notice for quitting. Have to provide 30 days notice otherwise vacation balance is not paid out and would not be considered for rehire

hi all, hope all is well

i left deloitte risk advisory due to personal reasons in sep 2021 (time off since july 2021) as the work got a bit much and my situation at home was complex.

i applied for a snr consultant role in consulting (strategy & ops, indus. redesign & innov.) and saw my app. got shortlisted. this role looks more suited for me and im super interested in it, more so than my prev. exp at D but you never know haha. whats the process like/how likely will i progress?

Employer requires use of vacation for sick days for non-exempt salaried employees, then surprises everyone with a forced, unpaid week at the end of the year due to shutdowns. At this point, most people that can afford to plan for the week of vacation time they have to use at the end of the year.

Is this common practice? I am pretty sure it is completely legal, but still seems like a bad policy.

How many of you have paid maternity leave at your firm? I’m at a firm that gives male attorneys 12 weeks paid paternity leave but gives full time staff nothing. It’s infuriating to know that I could have a baby the same time one of my male associates has one, and he can take off for 12 weeks , fully paid, while I (the one who just pushed out the baby!) get nothing. They did tell me I could use my vacation time (thanks so much!).
