I'll start - How much do benefits factor into your job search and deciding on an offer? For me, the vacation is critical, and it reflects the extent of the agency's culture of trust.
I'm currently working as an HR Director for a New Jersey non-profit of about 165 employees. I have been with the company 7 years and have a total of 10 years in the HR world. I have my Master's in HRM, my SHRM-CP, and am currently making $87k yearly. I have 7 weeks PTO, flex scheduling, and the ability to work remotely at my own discretion.
My father in law thinks I'm worth at least $40k-$50k more than I'm being paid currently. I don't know if he's right. What do you think?
My agency is implementing a new PTO process that includes getting your PTO request “signed off on” by HR. Is that normal?! (We currently have unlimited PTO)

Evaluating D consulting offer for an M.

My school has seen combinations of f2f, hybrid, and remote teaching/learning throughout the first half of the school year. After the MLK holiday, our district is returning to traditional f2f teaching 100%. I have 4 band classes (1 beginning, 2 intermediate, & 1 advanced), and as far as content pacing is concerned, we’re 1 9-week grading period behind. Is it a far fetched goal to get my students where they need to be by the end of the school year? How would you handle a situation like this?
With everyone taking vacation finally have enough energy to go to the gym after work! Have to love the holiday season.
I’m attending a “holiday reception” hosted by a bunch of different firms for all of the attorneys in a certain practice area. It’s at a restaurant in the evening, but there is no dress code listed anywhere and I have no idea what to wear. Is a simple cocktail dress OK? Should I wear normal work attire? I’m a new attorney so I have no context for these things. My firm is not hosting, so I don’t have anyone I could ask about it.
Expats from the US or elsewhere outside Australia/NZ, how do you navigate the holiday season? Do you fly home, or fly people out to you? If you stay in Australia how do the seasonal holiday celebrations differ from back home? Trying to decide what to do, first year living in Sydney.
I want to ask for a week off this summer for a local family trip. Any tips to bring it up in light of hours being down with covid? For context, I haven’t used any vacation days this year.
👀 Still looking for an apartment swap in NYC. I have a clean apartment in Mexico City. The dates are October 27th to November 3rd, Day of the Dead holiday weekend. With LOTS happening. Located in the best area of Mexico City with a ton of restaurants, cafes, and parks. High speed internet with standing desk, large TV, external monitor, and more. Message me your email or phone number and we can text to exchange pictures and more information.
How do you define vacation days and how many a year do you take? Could you please also state the company? Thanks a lot!!
Do you work a lot of overtime during flu season/the holiday season? My manager says with travelers and people needing shots + antibiotics we'll get swamped for like the next 3 months. Do I just work somewhere understaffed or is there a "busy season?"

I resigned from civil service a couple months ago with the ambition of finding a private sector consulting gig to concurrently gain enough experience to start my own small business. Wondering if anyone would be willing to look at my resume and provide feedback to get my foot in the door in the private sector. I've had it looked at a couple times by general resume reviewers but I can't seem to break through. Of note, I am starting a job with a public university that contracts with the federal gov
I have an accepted an offer from Oracle and around 8 days are left for my joining. But right after getting Oracle's offer I received an offer from another company with similar package but my preference is to join the second company.
The manager of Oracle is really kind and always followed up with me during the whole procedure and I am really feeling bad and thinking how to say I won't be joining. Can you please suggest some most possible polite words of how to convey this to him?
I have an offer on the table that I’m likely going to accept (I have some time before the deadline) but the recruiter is reaching out practically daily to see if I’ve signed (3rd party recruiting firm). Anyone have similar experiences?

I tend to be emotionally not stable and easily get anxious before my period. I recognize my feelings, and I understand that I need to be professional so I am trying hard to hold my emotions back at work, but sometimes it’s hard!!! I think this is an issue only women can understand.
I returned to my job after leaving, and was told that I wouldn't get a 6 month raise since I was a returning employee. I was passed up for a promotion/ payraise for by someone who has been here less than half the time. I am a top performer and have incredible numbers to back that up. How do I go about asking for a raise?

I recently applied for an external job at a company where I don’t have any personal contacts. I found the hiring manager and recruiter via LinkedIn though. Is it acceptable to reach out to them via LinkedIn message after a week or so post application submission to check status/re-express interest in the role even though we don’t know each other?

I need some advice. My manager made a big deal about me being in the bathroom for 10 minutes today. This is just another micromanaging tactic of his - lately everything I do is a problem. Next week is my final week until I start my new job and I’d had enough of the crap. I explained that if me going to the bathroom is a problem, I’d be glad to provide a doctors note and get with HR. He said he would show HR my emails. I said please do, as I have the right to use the bathroom. I’m not away

Was previously working as an advisor growing a nice book and left to move 18hrs away to be close to family. I was pregnant and desperate to take what would move us and now I’m a planner working for FAs and I’m making $130k. Was fine at first while I got thru pregnancy but now I’m not happy & regret accepting the job and pay. I’m supporting others who are making 3-4times my salary. I have 10 yrs experience and CFP, often more than FAs I’m helping. Ask for more $$ or start over being an FA?

I work in investment banking and am just going to be returning from maternity leave in one week. I was recruited from another bank to join my firm at the beginning of 2022 on the verbal promise I’d be promoted to VP by end of year, and am worried that because I was off for ~3 month Mat leave I will be held back from promotion to VP and a good bonus. What do you think? If this plays out for the worst (ie no promo and bad bonus), do I have grounds for legal action? Just curious
Hi everyone! Currently in Mortgage ops and looking to transition into sales (loan origination) but without experience I want to start at a company that can provide the leads - has anyone managed to go from ops to sales recently?
