United lost my son's car seat on a 3 hr flight. It was registered as a checked luggage with the proper csrseat tag and everything. After following up with an agent after we landed, they said it stayed in EWR and they are working to get it shipped to me in the next day or so while I'm on vacation. Anyway to get points for the inconvenience, I'm Premier platinum if it matters. They did give me a free loaner carseat until mine arrives but it's kinda crappy tbh.
Why is unlimited PTO a scam?
So I was diagnosed w cancer and have spent the last 6 months in surgery, chemo, rocs, etc. I’ve not stopped working accept for 2 weeks post surgery. My boss has been generally understanding about me taking some time when needed. I took a few extra pto during thxgiv week.

When I got back I was given poor feedback &told that “your inconsistent presence is hard to work with”… how do I react?
This time of year always reminds me of the year my boss gave each member of the team an ax (like for chopping wood) as a holiday gift with a note to “Stay Sharp” and I (the only female on the team) got pruning shears instead. What’s the best or worst holiday gift you’ve received at work?

How do most firms handle billable hour goals & PTO? I haven’t taken any pto all year and I would like to but I’m realizing for any pto I use I would need to make up hours to make sure I still hit my monthly goal.
Do you actually ask for PTO or just let them know? I’ve always just told me Manager when I plan on taking it and that’s it. Not really a “can I” but a “so I’ll be off these days”. Granted I usually

Is it ethical or safe for a fully vaxxed person to fly after confirmed, close exposure to covid during the Thanksgiving holiday and weekend? Does that travel pose a risk to others? Should they voluntarily quarantine for 14 days?
Just returned from my combined family vacation with my SO. I initially thought it would be a great idea to being our parents along to show them a new country and give back for everything they’ve given us in life. Fast forward I’m more exhausted than before the vacation. My mother has been toxic all the way and didn’t miss out on a single opportunity to criticize my relationship. My in-laws were either talking all the time about random stuff or fighting between each other. Continuing…

My husband and I started thinking about having kids. I am pretty nervous about it since it’s during a freaking pandemic.

Like dietary, clinical, financial and emotional preparation, etc. also with this pandemic, i don’t know if I will be able to join any moms group to meet new moms and babies...

How many SPG points do you have?
Which PWC practice area should I be preferring? I have prior experience in Healthcare consulting and I'm looking for a diverse experience. I'm applying for the Summer Associate positions in US, and I was hoping to get some guidance on the different practice areas. I do not wish to be in teams that focus mainly on implementation or operations and would prefer consulting projects. I have no clue what kind of work Delivering Deal Value M&A and other such practices entail.

Health Insurance? What are your premiums , deductibles and max out of pockets for a family plan w kids ?
Can someone walk me through how to do a backdoor Roth. I have a traditional IRA with Vanguard and with the max contributed for this year. But I don’t have a Roth account. Can I still roll the $$ over? Is there any point to rolling it over now while I’m above the Roth contribution limit? Or should I wait until I leave this job for a lower paying gig sometime in the next few years? Also, I I am maxing out my 401k and cannot take a dedication on the contributions to my traditional IRA.
I'm a Registered Nurse who's been working as a sales professional for the last 11yrs. Ironically, none of the sales jobs I've been recruited for have been in healthcare. They've all been in the industrial setting (O&G, Chemicals, etc). I just moved across the country for my husband's job, and the new job I found is terrible. I'm looking to get back to my roots in healthcare and apply my sales experience to that sector, but I'm not getting any calls back for this sector. What am I doing wrong?
