Good food

Nah

Not horrible. Sandia is a good casino.

Sandia Ridge has some nice hiking trails -- once you're up it feels almost like you're in the Pacific Northwest instead of the Southwest. Also, New Mexico is one of the best places in the world to fly experimental planes/rockets/missiles which is why you have so many UFO sightings there. I went on a glider ride down in Moriarty and had a blast

Great breweries and surprisingly good food options.

Get ready for green chilies in errythang!

Got signed off from work a couple of weeks back due to work related stress (severe anxiety). I was the lead on a multi million pound project and the stress got to me. Firm was supportive. However, ive decided that I definitely do not want to continue working at my current firm (the stress is just not worth it) and am considering handing in my notice during my time off. Any thoughts on whether thats a step too far? Should i return to office full time before handing in my 3 month notice

My manager doesn’t seem to have any boundaries - always saying yes to additional unnecessary work from the client and always working through weekends/nights/PTO/holidays.

My last post was taken down, so I’ll restate my question here. I found out that someone was terminated from PwC for having a foot fetish and an online presence being honest about this fetish. Do you believe that PwC acted with integrity when deciding to terminate the employee who worked two internships and three years with the company. Just want to know what PwC’s stance is on ethics and wrongful termination when it comes to obscure situations such as this one.
