Paid team currently complaining about which vendors didn’t send them holiday gifts this year 🙄
Going to be in Madrid for the next 4 days on vacation. Any recommendations?? Used points so will be staying at the Westin Palace Madrid.
Anyone else annoyed with the darn holiday cards with everyone's picture perfect families? Dont get me wrong, there are some I genuinely like bc I like them. Some just feel like its rubbing it in. Or all in my head :(
I want to go from Tech Consulting to Commercial Law (UK). I know that I need to apply for Vacation Schemes, or try my luck with a Training Contract. Any advice would be much appreciated!
Do you guys prefer to take breaks while staffed on an active study or wait until the study closes and schedule vacation for a week or whatever term between studies?
I’ve never been a regular vacation-taker, but now I’m resolved to become one. Especially because my company has an unlimited PTO policy. Would 4 weeks of total vacation per year be considered a lot/excessive at your company? I’m thinking of doing two one week vacations, and one two week vacation, and booking them far in advance.
During this time last year, stores were putting up holiday stuff and we would complain that every year the holiday shopping started earlier and earlier. (._. )
Which agency offers the most time off?
Does D still penalize you for taking PTO? Did they change it recently? What is the utilization target for D Ms? How many days can you carry over to next year?
Everyone and their mama has been raving about air fryers. They said it's a healthier alternative to deep frying. Any recommendations? I want one for my holiday meals. I am currently looking at this one on Macys. https://www.macys.com/shop/product/crux-6.3-quart-digital-touchscreen-electric-air-fryer-created-for-macys?ID=11304871&pla_country=US&CAGPSPN=pla&cm_mmc=Google_SH_PLA_Cookware-_-GS_Cookware_PLA_Crux-_-293719126716-_-pg1050674350_m_kclickid__kenshoo_clickid__KID_EMPTY_1546922786_61770717587_293719126716_aud-37409341359

Office is dead. Everyone is on vacation.
I left my BigLaw job earlier this year to take some time off and/or retire early. I now have an offer from an old colleague, now at a boutique, to write briefs on a contracting basis. We haven’t discussed pay yet—what would be a reasonable hourly rate to ask for?
I’m miserable at my job but want to wait it out until I take an upcoming vacation in July. Is it stupid that I’m not looking for jobs when I’m completely bored, uninspiring and irritated everyday?
Anyone know if companies are doing virtual holiday parties and if so, what are they doing? I’m tasked with planning mine, but if I have to sit on another awkward zoom happy hour I might just explode. Open to suggestions or ideas. My team is spread out internationally, so even sending a stupid “swag” gift is next to impossible.
Anyone else stuck and not feeling very inspired? I just realized that I have been staring at my computer for 10 minutes and not processed a single thing the person talking has said. I need a vacation from working @ home!
