I have the next 20 days off from work and in an extreme lockdown in Germany. What can I do to stay productive, learn, grow/ build a hobby from home? I'm 25 and do not want to waste this vacation doing nothing at home
Tips on how to cheer yourself up when you feel alone and tired? Been thinking about taking a vacation by myself but I feel like that might just fuel my emotions about feeling alone. To clarify, I feel
Pros and cons of unlimited PTO?
Is it frowned upon to start a new job with already 2 weeks of vacation planned within a week of starting? Seen it done, unsure if it looks bad or not. Insight please!
Question for BAH - are you able to expense taxi/uber for after hour safety from your holiday event to home? I know most companies let you and so does Deloitte. Asking for a Booz friend.
I recently joined Citi, where to find the list of holiday s for chennai Citi corp. Available leave balances and career related progression inside citi.

Feeling hopeful for a job offer in the coming week(s).
Would be my first entry to the ‘VP’ level, officially leading my own team and strategy without a CMO.
Curious where I should begin with compensation requests - no stock options avail. What’s a realistic salary without cutting myself short? Reasonable to request a signing bonus for loss of end of year bonus by leaving in Q4? What percentage of salary? Does PTO scale up at that level as well?
NYC, 10 years exp, Masters, great role fit
Company closed our Office location after 16 years. HR told me that “they don’t pay out” our remaining PTO (I have 103 hours). Is there anything legally that I can do to get my EARNED Hours paid out to me???
Will the optional holiday be auto approved or do I need to get it approved by my manager?

If your wanting a mix of salary increase and work / life benefit increase, what are some things you negotiate for that you now have in your job? More pto? Flex time? Other special arrangements? Has any one negotiated periods of time off ( around a month) based on certain objectives met? Was thinking perhaps negotiating unpaid leave for pursuing other interests / family time. Job is in medical IT, Midwest, 10 years. Thanks
Just came back from my three week vacation and was so so happy not having to work and didn’t feel depressed for a minute. Literally can’t take this job a second longer
I’m a first year analyst and am not quite sure what to wear to the holiday party. How formal should my dress be? Is there such thing as overdressing? Have my eyes on a pretty gown.
Where in the US can I go this weekend (from DC) for an impromptu fun vacation where I won't freeze my ass off? Trying to surprise the wife for her birthday..
My job can easily be done from home, which my boss has acknowledged, but wants to be “fair” to those in operations who need to be on-site. Today is a very slow work day, many took PTO. I have some tasks to complete, but thought this to be a good WFH day. Why commute close to an hour both ways just to sit at my desk? I was told that it wouldn’t be fair to the team. This was mere hours after being asked to complete a task in 24 hours that the 3 managers assigned to it weeks ago failed to do. Fair?
Monday and not even noon and I am so exhausted I just want to lie down. Toddler woke me up at two am and I basically couldn’t fall back asleep after that because I was so stressed about the week. MDP came back from a week of vacation and had a bunch of things he didn’t like and chewed me out about this morning. I just feel super over it all. Hard to imagine continuing in this business. Those who have left for corporate work do you find it less stressful, more sustainable?
Curious what you do for your hair stylist and salon at holiday. I have an appointment tomorrow. Bigger tip? Anything necessary beyond the usual big tip?
Had covid recently and it knocked me out for a few days. I also have upcoming long-planned PTO next week. Any tips on how to still take this time off without my team hating me for being out so much?

As a parent how are you feeling mentally and emotionally ??? Are you Frustrated or Angry with government messaging and managing expectations.
How are you feeling overall ? Would be interesting to know how you feel.
