Contractor 1- I’m making $30hr. How much are you making?
Contractor 2 - I’m making $50hr with 10days of pto *Contractor 1 asks for raise, gets fired from things contractor 2 did*
As a mid-level associate, what is an appropriate amount of notice to give your firm when you leave? I’m running a couple deals right now and do not want to leave my team in a bind...so 2 weeks seems far too short. That said, I also want to take some actual time off before starting a new role. Not sure how much time new employer is willing to give me before starting...I suspect max 6 weeks.
I am an elementary school teacher. My oldest son is feeling drawn to ECE. He loves children, loves to help in vacation bible school, wants to work directly with people to help them. Thoughts?
If we decided to leave the firm and put in a two week notice and were told to take PTO for the remainder of time, can we A. Say no? Or B. Quit immediately? The purpose of quitting would be to retain
I will be relocating to Bengaluru.
Just wanted to know if Deloitte will give me 3-4 days holiday to travel to base location and searching of new flat?

Shameless request (I'm not at McK anymore): traveling on vacation in Jan on Delta. Could use a couple drink vouchers. Please help.
Tackey request but I'm traveling with my overbearing mom
Booked a vacation months in advance using PTO. Just found out our sign off got pushed to the week I’m not here….what do I do? I already bought tickets and booked a hotel.
How long of a vacation is too long? In other words, as a partner or senior associate is there a duration where you’re like “wtf how can the mid level/junior expect to be out of commission for [•] days??”
Go to sandals or flip flops for the pool/beach? I have high arches so usually avoid flip flops if I have to walk any distance at all, but need something cute and comfy for upcoming vacation.
Slalom Consulting has very disappointing PTO plan and holidays for a company that likes to value work life balance
Dilute burnout through the winter with PTO or go all in on exit apps? Curious to hear how others are thinking about job security (in the event of a stronger correction), building traction at a new job (when you won’t meet your leadership team in person for a year), and stagnant comp (at places like Deloitte who aren’t concerned about retention).
I am feeling like I am the verge of a meltdown at my current job, and I have a variety of interviews but I’m having a really hard time making time for interviewing and my current responsibilities. I have plenty of money in the bank, and I sort of want to just quit and finish out my interviews, choose a job and get a little time off - but in some ways this seems crazy. Thoughts?
Is anyone else seeing their holiday and PTO wages being taxed by the state they're based out of (IL) even if you are a nonresident of that state? I've only worked in my base location 1 day this year. I would expect that I didn't meet the 30 working day threshold to be taxed on any wages, but HR is claiming those paycodes are taxable because of my base location.

She comes of passive aggressive but I just ignore because she is not my manager it’s temporary. I couldn’t let this slide without letting her know I felt her response was aggressive

Is it normal to get ghosted by an ECD after they show interest in hiring you? Chatted over Zoom with an NYC ECD earlier this year. They told me to get in touch with them in August about meeting in person. I did what they said. I've emailed once a week since the start of August, but have heard nothing. I understand that ECDs are busy, but I wonder if I should give up.
Can someone please hire me 😐 looking for either an Art Direction internship or Jr Art Director job. I am nearly finished with my FIT graphic design certificate and have completed an Art Director’s portfolio course at SVA. I graduated from Baruch College with a Bachelors in Advertising and Marketing Communications as well. I’ve worked for two huge agencies thus far, it’s just that it hasn’t been in creative, and that’s what I want. Anything will help ☺️ thank you so much!

A close friend started a fancy snack subscription box for $75/mo. I ordered the first time out of support but it’s not for me. I eat very specific diet and it’s too fancy for me (think $12 one serving cookies). I feel guilty and obligated but can’t bring myself to sign up for the annual. A lot of our friends have. I’ve had a side biz for 10 yrs and while it is a niche shes not part of, it’s not like she has supported my business. I could gift the box to someone else. But do I have to?
