Should I work a bit during holiday break to get my areas in good shape or just say f this and take time off because audit is going to get done no matter what. I inherited messy area from a person who recently left the firm and leadership was saying we (as in I) need to put in extra effort to close down review notes that the previous girl left (there’s about 89 open as of now lol)
Is there a studio in the dmv area where I can go get a holiday photo taken with my husband? We did a photo shoot in the summer and really don’t want a full fledged photo shoot right now. Just a couple of photos in a studio with some sort of Christmas/ holiday set up. They always show stuff like this in movies, wondering if it’s real lol

Anyone successfully negotiate their vacation time? I have never had more than 3 weeks off and well past 10 YOE...
Any moms here living in WA state and availed the 12 weeks parental leave( baby bonding time off) offered by the state recently?
Feeling burnt out, like I’m not doing great work, in need of a major life change, and that I’m just in survival mode until the Holiday break. Meanwhile I feel guilt of having a stable remote job unlike so many others around the country. Someone tell me that I’m not alone
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?!
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.
Teachers leaving school on Friday’s and holiday breaks 😂😂😂 https://www.instagram.com/p/CTxwMgdDEzN/?utm_medium=share_sheet
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!
First time on bench since I joined last year. Feels weird to have pretty much nothing to do but really needed the time off. Should I try to find a project right away or wait for one more week? ⛱
How do I give my two week notice? Through initiating resignation on DNet? I’m also going to be away on vacation until 1.5 weeks before...
Been on vacation for a week and I don’t want to go back tomorrow. Spending time outside, chilling with my dog and endless Netflix is so much better. 🙈
Has anyone had deviated septum surgery (especially with both sides and not just one deviated side)? How long did it take to recover and to be able to get back to work? How did you handle the time off with the firm? TIA
Recently got an offer from one of the MBB as entry level staff and I am wondering if the salary and benefits (PTO etc) are non-negotiable ？
Client's assistant won't shut up about buying a villa in Tuscany. Bitch, I know how much you make. A weekend at The Holiday Inn would be stretching it. #backdowntoearthplease
Notice etiquete question. If you give your 2 weeks’ notice on a Monday, is your last day a Monday (2 weeks later) or can it be the previous Friday? Does your answer change depending on the time (morning/ afternoon) notice is given? If I don’t want to potentially burn any bridges, should I just have my notice period end on a Monday and just take that day out of my scheduled vacation before starting my next job? First time giving notice - would be interested in hearing what others have done.
LA, what's good? I know basically every agency out here had layoffs last year, so is anyone looking to hire a mid-level AD?
8 weeks later and I am still testing positive for covid. But since I am symptom free for over 3 weeks I can return back to work. They say I am not contagious...i do have antibodies. But I am still nervous about spreading it.
Any advice for a strategist entering an internship with Droga, Anomaly, W+K, 72, etc, entering the new year? Thanks

Heard a rumor that PWC is cancelling their internship program but giving them full time offers. Can anyone confirm?
If you received candidate profile form does that typically mean that you will receive a first round interview or is it another filter?
Just received an offer I’m pretty excited about. On H1B with an approved I140 (since 2017). Planning to start at the new company by end of July. Any best practices to keep in mind? Specifically on what to communicate with /ask from the new organization (they are open to transferring h1b), when is it safe to resign from Deloitte, anything around the gc process with the new firm etc.? Thanks a lot in advance 🐠 family!

Okay I’m going to say it if hasn’t been said before: I want the option to go back to the office now. I get some of you have kids or prefer wfh but I can’t stand it. I hate being cramped up and some people also live with toxic family members. We should make it optional for those who want/need to come back
Can anyone shed some light on construction lien law in the commercial litigation context? Interesting? Horrible? It depends?
Hey Capgemini Consulting fish! How many people in Capgemini's US life sciences team? Any insights about their bench or pipeline would be really helpful. Many thanks!
Getting the vaccine tomorrow morning, just hit 17 weeks. SUPER nervous thanks to my conspiracy theorist dad but excited to protect myself and my baby girl!
An intern I manage is kinda slacking.. signing on late and I don't see the progress I want to see. I don't want to let them go, but how do I help them become better?
NOT A CONFESSION! SEEKING ADVICE HERE I know therapy is useful. How do we get most out of our therapy sessions? How do we track or monitor the progress with therapy? (FYI - I have always been a nerdy kid pressurized by parents. I am finding it a little difficult to maintain and handle friendships. I have realized that dealing with emotions is important. My manager from previous company was toxic. I had a recent break up. My grandfather died last month. Recent events have taken a toll on me)
