What should I request for Mother's Day? And why is it always Mom's job to come up with gift ideas, even gifts for herself? Wish my husband and 12 y.o. would put some thought into it & surprise me instead of asking me to pick my gift every year.
11 hrs on a workday can expense dinner but 4 hrs on a weekend or holiday can expense lunch. Am I supposed to be working 7 hrs every workday or 1-2 hrs every weekend 🤔
The more I look at this COVID executive order the more it looks like a scam. Similar to the cool toy or trip a parent promises that never happens. Also like your toxic ex who likes to deflect blame. •Money is coming from FEMA. Hello Hurricane season?!? •Months to set up. •Feds are only paying 75% and wanting States to handle more.
Why is partner comp so opaque? I can’t think of any other job where they expect you to go for promotion with such little understanding of what you’re actually going for, how long you have to stay etc.

I have an opportunity to go in-house at a huge beauty/fashion brand. I’ve only been in advertising for 3 yrs but am getting sick of it already. Haven’t gotten my promised raise and the current agency is a mess with layoffs/raise freezes plus the horrific hours and not making work I love. Am I too soon to leave advertising? Do I give it another shot? Or is it smart to go in-house because the industry is suffering? This new job offers a title bump, the salary I want, and better hours but also...
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?

VENT: I took a month off between jobs to finally get a break for the first time in 20 years. In that month I have had one single day off. All the other days have been doing house projects, managing our rentals, or taking care of sick kids. I even went on a vacation with my husband for a week where he had a depression breakdown so I was stuck taking care of his emotional well-being the entire time. I’m FRIGGIN EXHAUSTED. I’m so tired of taking care of everyone else. Rant over.

KPMG M&A Strategy folks - what type cases should one expect to see in the interviews. Asking for a friend. Thank you ! KPMG My guess is maybe a market sizing case? Anything else?
Spinoff question... I know FMLA technically only covers you if you've worked for 12 months at your employer but has anyone actually had their employer say "sorry you we only here for 10 months so you can take your two weeks of accrued vacation, after that we'll expect you back." ? Since FMLA is unpaid anyway, I would imagine most employers would at least let you have unpaid time off.

Anyone here at Lyft? Wanted to talk about a role there but have questions about hiring despite the recent layoffs. TIA
For my 401k I have a section that shows Roth contributions and earnings. I have a different section that is labeled “nontaxable balances” and just shows Roth contributions. The Roth contributions number is smaller than the Roth contributions and earnings (which is expected since my contributions have grown). But why aren’t my Roth contributions AND earnings showing in the nontaxable balances section?

While attending Catholic school in the first grade I was really naughty and sneaked in the empty classroom during recess with a friend. We raided the treasure chest full of goodies (candy, stickers, snacks) and stuffed them in our backbacks. When it was time for class, our teacher noticed the missing treasures and made us all sit in silence until one of us cracked. Someone ratted on my friend, I was in the clear, and my friend never told on me. I still feel bad about it. : (
What an upgrade! Thank you Bonvoy for maintaining my status despite not travelling for a year and a half!

My firm has been pushing us to go back to the office since June, and every single day now they are sending pro-office propaganda. You can convince me there are benefits to being in the office, but good grief, let us work from home once or twice a week! Otherwise I’m out.
Both my husband and I have been remote since April 2020. We’re both very independent and do things alone here and there but I feel like working from home for so long has caused a bit of co-dependency. Recently, I’ve gone into the office a few times and I’ve noticed that I have a lot of anxiety about everything when I’m in the office - from work, the commute, my husband, how he’s doing, what he’s doing, etc. Has any one else dealt with this?
