I’m not pregnant but I am in family planning mode. Is it worth going full time for maternity leave benefits? Does anyone have insight or experience with self funding your own maternity leave? I’d love to hear about others experience if they did. Thanks!
What could your employer do to make you happy and want to stay? I go first 🙋🏽 more time off and leadership be an example by discouraging unrealistic overtime work
I've been temping all pandemic for a school district as an HR specialist, how can I get out of education & make this work in HR? My degree a decade back was Psychology and I've been in non-profits and upper academia since. DFW all around clerical looking for a FT with decent benefits and pay.
Currently in Strategy for a big firm but considering the benefits if going boutique. Any thoughts?
Has anyone taken one of those online executive courses, like the Harvard Extension School offers? Looking to use my $5k of tuition reimbursement and already have an MBA. Worth it? Best programs?
In California, employees are entitled to paid sick leave. Does anyone know why interns/temp/part time workers in get paid sick time but full time employees have to use PTO? Is this a Public Accounting or just an RSM thing?
EY folks please help me. I am confused. For maternity leave in the state of CA: We have disability leave, EY parental leave, and optional CA paid family leave. Which one comes first? Say I want to....
To all the 🐠 who serve/d our country and their families - thank you for this holiday weekend. 🇺🇸
EY Parental leave question: how many weeks were you actually out? When I took my leave 3 years ago, I counted total of 21 weeks of leave. That’s including one firm winter holiday week. I remember I initially thought I would be back after 16 weeks, but then in the middle of my time off I got an email from Leave Team with the breakdown and it actually was 21 weeks. Can someone who took leave recently tell me the actual number of weeks?
Expecting a baby this summer. Should I still be looking for other job opportunities? EY has a very generous paternity leave if you’ve been with the firm for 1+ years, but not sure if I would have the same opportunity to take 2-3 months leave if I switch jobs. Can I potentially work parental leave into negotiations?
Smart or not to move my 401k from Vanguard target fund entirely to SPY , or similar? Mid 20s
Dumb question but if I’m taking PTO Friday-Monday, is my end time at 12AM on that Monday or Tuesday on outlook?
My clients asked me if I can work during my vacation in Mexico. They approved my vacation arrange three months ago. And they are asking me one day before I left? Seriously?!
Not counting the unlimited PTO folks, how many vacation days do you have? Trying to figure out what’s a fair ask when more money’s not an option.
How do you know when you have enough money? I got laid off in the spring, but don’t feel a pressing need to get a new job right away. Have 3 rental properties, all paid off, get about $3k/mth net from that, have about $200k in a 401k and another $200k in more-liquid investments. I spend less than $2k/mth and feel happy and comfortable. Not married and no kids... but would like that one day, so thinking of maybe saving some more money for that. Anyone been in a similar situation? Any advice?
Hey 🐠, looking for some advice - what’s the best way to approach a conversation with a more junior team member about being out of office frequently? Since they were hired back in May they’ve taken off 1-2 days per week for various reasons (plus 1.5 weeks for vacation)… I understand that things come up, people get sick, etc. but it’s impacting delivery / I never know when they will ping in the morning and say that they won’t be in so I have to have someone else, or me, pick up the slack…
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
The 3 weeks of pto that do not affect utilization are also for USDC? I took a 6 days recently and my utilization went down…
Consultants in their respective federal practices - are you on extended holiday? Or are there still projects that are actively being worked on
Fucking Delta lounge at LGA is packed
If putting in your notice while on PTO/bench, would you propose that the last day be the last date of your PTO (given it’s more than 2 weeks away)? Or sooner / 2 weeks from now?
Help! We think our 2.5 yo is dealing with asthma and doctors won’t seem to do much. He’s always sick/terrible cough and poor guy can’t get sleep and is out of school a lot. anyone experience this?
Well fuck. I got laid off. Just when you think you’re in the clear, 2020 brings the pain. Guess it’s true that the big title comes with a big target.
Nanny cam recommendations please. We have a 3 bedroom apartment so never really bought a baby monitor .
Just got on the bench.. How long can I prolong this beach time until I get a warning? Analyst level and 100% chargeability YTD
Considering most of my college friends make a salary that is half what I make and have no potential for raises or bonuses each year makes me thankful I work in such a rewarding industry. 🦃
My boss and mentor was recently laid off with the cuts made last week, and I have a gut feeling I’m next. I’ve tried my best to stay positive with my current agency, but it’s time to move on. I need a change of pace. Understand just about every shop is on a hiring freeze, but anyone need a strategist?
Wife got lawyer, and I am interviewing lawyers starting tomorrow. I am primary breadwinner (95%), but she is citing at-fault divorce. I have been having substance abuse issues and anger issues (no physical violence). Need help. She is okay about negotiating outside lawyers. Can anyone recommend a divorce lawyer in ATL area? Any pointers? No kids. Married for 3 years. I paid her student loans and put her through school.
For any AA platinum members - is it worth it? Flying from DCA to ORD. Thinking about the status challenge but $500 for plat challenge + plat now is steep. Sick of united silver.
I didn’t get any stimulus checks, and I didn’t get any sort of raise for recent inflation. I am significantly more poor than I was before covid because of this nonsense. Thanks, government.
Got laid off this week—any freelance opportunities floating around for an Art Director? I’ll literally take anything at this point.
Hey, Looking to help a candidate with MBA in HR and 2+ Years of experience. Please reply so that I can forward the details as soon as possible for faster employment.
What is everyone’s employer 401k match like? I feel like EY’s is lacking but maybe it’s just public accounting in general (cont.)
What do you do on Monday to get your week set up? I feel like I spend so much time helping my team get their pipelines in shape for the week / setting up a plan.
If COVID has taught me anything, it’s that I don’t trust anyone to keep me safe. Especially some of you losers in the bowl who don’t have a brain and refuse to believe this virus is real
