I'd rather get a Christmas bonus than a holiday party
Looking for a vacation home/weekend rentals next weekend in any of the western suburbs, preferably Naperville. Any ideas on alternative sites to search? Not too many options on Airbnb or vrbo
Our company is moving to unlimited PTO starting next year. What’s the average time off you’ve taken per calendar year?
I ran into my ex a couple days ago and it’s just all screwed with my head. We are kinda talking and he invited me to his company holiday party to be his +1.
And then he’s been ignoring me.
Debating on whether or not I should get myself a financial advisor. I’m in my early 30’s, about to take a 30% jump in pay, and want to make up for lost time when I wasn’t able to save as much as I wanted and start investing. But I’m clueless! I plan to contribute more to my 401k/rIRA but also want to invest for some short and long term goals like buying a vacation home in 8-10 years and future children’s college funds.
Would an advisor be worth the cost?
Let's support local businesses this holiday season! I'm starting a thread where we can share our favorite small/local businesses we want others to know about!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
We need a vacation
Working through nanny contract right now. Anything you wish you had put in up front that you didn’t? Also- wrt vacation, how do you handle additional days you take off? We are giving our nanny (cont’d
Supervisor said I couldn’t have week off for vacation this summer bc another coworker of higher seniority asked off the same week and two people can’t go on vacation at the same time because of staffing. But this coworker that asked off works different shift than me? He works 1st shift I work second. We have a total of 8 workers and no more than 4 work a day. can easily be covered. This has never been a problem until this year (we got a new supervisor). we’re used to being short staffed anyway
Does anyone take day dates with their spouse/partner? By the time I get to bed, even on the weekends, I’m spent. I wonder if it would be more enjoyable to spend that time together during the day. We both work incredibly hard and are successful, but honestly I’m more the YOLO type and he probably would find it ridiculous to take this time off work. Has anyone found some enjoyment/benefit to spending time with your spouse like this?
Which Job Offer Would You Pick? I’m fortunate enough to have recently received 2 job offers. Which would you pick based on the following information?:
Job Offer 1 - Salary: 10,000 more per year than Job Offer 2, less PTO than Job Offer 2, better work place culture
Job Offer 2 - Salary: 10,000 less per year than Job Offer 1, more PTO than Job Offer 1, better benefits than Job Offer 1
Job duties are comparable. Feel free to ask questions to help you decide! Thanks for weighing in!
Going to a holiday party that s manager is having. They're doing the white elephant game and I need to bring a gift no more than $20. I want to bring something ppl would actually want. Ideas?
How does your firm deal with underperforming associates? We are crazy busy but have a couple first-years on vacation, 50-100 hours per month, and thinking we are a "lifestyle" firm. I don't want to just fire them, at least not yet, but I want to see a change. How many second chances do you give? How many months under budget?
Some people in audit just have no chill. Where do they get the energy to do the most all day every day and never take PTO? I can barely get out of bed before 9am
Starting to look for a part time nanny now we’re going back to office (3 days a week). Total newbs here and just starting the process. One potential nanny asked for PTO and vacation days (and being paid if we don’t need her one of the agreed upon days). This makes sense, but is this typical? I’m in LA.
What's the floating holiday policy in Accenture ? If I joined in April 21, how many floating holiday can I avail before 31st December ?
Aww too cute!
Looking for feedback, I'm updating my resume and I'm wondering at what point should I start removing past work experience. I've heard anything older than 10 years should go?
Any opening for a Tech-lead with 8 years of experience.
Current position: specialist in quality assurance.
I was just thinking about the "most successful women in advertising" lists and all the ilk of other minority issues. I don't intend this to come across as self-serving, but is there anything like that for LGBTQ? I can't think of one I've seen, and I would LOVE to see that. Thinking back to when I was a Jr AD, I feel like that would have had an immense impact on me.
Hey guys has TCS started calling employees to wfo. If we request extended wfh will they accept
Cleared my first round in HCL on 24th Feb, Second round on 4th March, HR discussion on 8th March, another HR discussion (CTC negotiation) on 24th March. Everytime I am getting a response that CTC is awaiting delivery approval. Now HR is not responding to my calls/mails. I have requested many times to provide status even if it's rejected, but no response at all.
Why is it that all the agencies that bark about culture are the ones that don’t get it?
I’ve had issues since high school, but just formally got diagnosed with ADHD. I’ve always managed to get by okay at work (I’m no super star), but remote meetings have been really difficult for me and I now feel like I’m barely hanging on. Trying meds now, but no benefits yet. Pros and Cons of disclosing the diagnosis to my team, partner, or firm? I’m torn.
A Business Insider article on $BTO:
Can anyone speak to how media planning is for pharma/health agencies? Had a recruiter reach out to me from FCB Health and want to know what to expect. I’ve heard creative is kinda soulless but I’ve honestly expected it working in advertising lmao
My wife said I could watch both of my kids this weekend or take one and go tailgating at Notre Dame....... 😳😳 I just purchased one of those child wrist leashes. Anyone other guys use those?
I’m so depressed, have been for years, and don’t see it getting better. I’ve tried everything from therapy, exercise, psychiatry, journaling, self help books, healthy diet, etc. what else is there?
Trying to evaluate monetary offers is difficult since I receive a significant bonus for maintaining my clearance (120k + 30k for the clearance). So I’m evaluating a non-cleared offer for 180k. I don’t want to hold the clearance anymore. Should I evaluate it against the 120 or the 150 in terms of answering the question “is the jump big enough to leave?” With bonus and without clearance, it’s a 40% or so jump, but only a 12-15% jump with only bonus and base included.
Ting tong, the door bell rang in middle of Zoom call. Leader (top dog) stood up only to realise his fancy lungi flashed on the screen. An awkward smile followed.
Any Zoom fails (fun) you witnessed recently?
1. How is IBM ISL is for job security, increment, work?
2. How much should I ask and get?
Applied for Cloud software architect (2nd technical round pending)
Previous exp: .net core, azure, aws
Current CTC : 16.5 lpa fixed
Currently holding offer of 29+1 jb lpa 16% VP included but didn't accepted it yet due to high VP.
For people that started recently, what is your utilization looking like? I joined in September and have 24% utilization. I have been staffed on 4 deals that all died within a week and it’s been pretty frustrating
