Proposal touch point near EOD. I will be PTO tomorrow and unavailable most of the evening. Does it make sense to still attend or should I just decline the invite? I’m kind of nervous saying that I’ll be unavailable for action items. First proposal so sorry for the newb question.
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!
I’m waiting on my offer letter from Deloitte and coming in as a senior. I was just wondering what some of the perks are (pto, etc).
Is it bad that I’m going on vacation with my family in March and not telling the partner I work under that I’m doing so? Im a tax manager and my busiest time is Jan-March 15th, so I’m going to work by the pool/at night. I have Teams on my phone so I can stay green all day I think.
How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.
I currently am trying to take two days off, got a mediation statement from OC, naturally I had to read it, and then I emailed the partner offering to do any follow up on the statement tomorrow. Lawyers trying to take time off… what a joke. anyone else have this problem?? Amazingly partner replied enjoy your time off and we’ll circle around Wednesday
Anyone gonn be mad if I roll in late to the holiday party with S.O. even tho no +1 specified? His holiday party is also tmrw but he gets a +1, I wanna go to both & not have to ditch him halfway 🤔🎉
Holiday gift exchange at work (virtual, so we’ll be mailing things to people’s houses like a secret Santa). $20-30 suggested price range. I was thinking of sending a 45 miscellaneous assortment pack of little snacks, like a bag of cheez it’s, rice krispy treats, cookies, granola bar, nuts etc. Yay / nay?
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
2nd year in and having gone straight from undergrad to banking, cant imagine what it feels like to have a “normal job” (i.e. 9-5, weekend free, no work on vacation, can unplug completely off work)
Self-directed IRAs. So many questions! Have any of you ever tried a self directed IRA? I’m thinking about it in relation to investing in a company (to the tune of 150-200k) or possibly purchasing a vacation property as an investment in a location we’d like to retire (if I did that, could we use it to vacation personally occasionally in the meantime? Even if we needed to pay the IRA for the rental?) Thoughts? Warnings?
Were you ever asked to burn your PTO and work just because your chargeability was not priced to win the work??? Happy Holidays yeh..!!
Has My People Link been updated for vacation days with the transition to Mercury? Also, if you’re carrying over vacation from the prior year, when do you have to use it by?
I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
Those of you who have had their companies go from a certain number of days PTO to unlimited PTO, did you actually take more days off after the change or were you pressured to take less? Company and service line would be helpful but not necessary
Pre-covid did B4 have Holiday/New Years parties?

Your vacation isn’t “well-deserved”. It’s in your offer letter and it’s contractual. So take those goddamn days.

Chicago Tribune: Huge crowd gathers at Rotary Hill near Naperville District 203 offices to demand area schools reopen. Hundreds of Naperville-area parents & students rallied Monday to urge local school boards to bring students back to the classroom and the playing field. Hmm...so all these parents just want to send their kids into schools do die, right? And kill all the teachers and their families too. All out of pure selfishness.
