Have taken an unpaid leave to spend time/vacation with family in my home country. It’s caused an issue with my manager which is making me anxious and depressed. How can I compartmentalize my anxiety and be present with family for the next few weeks before going back to the office?
I’m on vacation (only 3 days) - how do I stop looking at my email and thinking about all the work I’ll come back to?!
How did you all handle like a family matter or traumatic event that happened while super busy at work? I’m finding myself being very unmotivated and unable to focus, but feel like I can’t take time off.
Any recs for where to stay in San Diego?

I'm hitting my personal lowest. I'm taking vacation next week to just "be at home" and don't answer emails. I am on local project but pretty burned out so really all I want to do is anything but work.
First day in industry and go to look at my time sheet.... What? There’s only one code I need to put my time to if I’m working? I can submit it weekly? And I don’t need to give at least 2 weeks advance for PTO when I’m requesting it? Oh me oh my why did I not make this move sooner!
LGA rental car question - live in Brooklyn and picking car up from here. How best to get there? Uber to terminal or actual rental place? Internet has conflicting info! Thanks 🐠

KPMG firm-wide update re PTO: we aren’t AT THIS TIME considering the unlimited PTO policy EY just rolled out, we think our current policy is the right policy for our people even though it has a balance sheet impact.

Damn ATL back at it again with the sexy weather
AA staff denied my boarding through One World Ruby (even though I showed her my Privilege Club card) very unprofessionally because it doesn't show on my boarding pass. Gotta love holiday travels.
I'm off work for the next three months. My CPA title will be rolling in soon, and I'm wondering what I can do to stay mentally/professionally active during my time off. Any suggestions?

So I started at a new role at a known retailer about 2 months ago. I am their first hire in this role, as I have more than 5 years of relevant experience leading initiatives and optimizing process across departments. While I understand it takes time to adjust to the culture, its seems like all I have witnessed is resistance to change. I already feel myself not wanting to be here long, but I'm putting pressure on myself to not be a quitter. Would you stick it out or start looking?

14 months into my first agency job and I’ve been told from my CDs that I’ve been recommended for a raise. What should I ask for? I’m making 58k now and have had a bunch of work produced.

It is very difficult to do my job and think creatively when I’m living each day in constant fear of being laid off. I’m grateful to have a job, but damn, sometimes I feel like I’m coming apart at the seams. Happy Saturday, everyone.
Alright that’s it. I gotta get the hell out of advertising. If anyone is hiring a bad designer with no digital chops whatsoever because I’ve been working on campaigns for 6 years HMU.

This is for my real estate agents. I’m brand new into the business and I adore the work. What tips or pointers can you give to a new agent- I’m in Las Vegas if it helps to be specific. If anyone has any book recommendations that’d be awesome as well. I’m looking to learn anything and everything. For example, learning what I can and can’t do to make a deal close
Been logging serious hours from my home standing desk. Or, as I like to call it, the ironing board. WFH life hacks.

Hi San Fran fishies! I just landed a job in Sunnyvale/Cupertino. I’ve been told there’s plenty of public transport and shuttles. Would you suggest bringing my car from the midwest or sell it?
