Any idea what’s the holiday schedule like for SDC folks in India? Or where can we find it? I can’t see it on Sparkpad.

I’m having severe anxiety about my job search. I verbally accepted a job offer. Hours later I got a call from another job I was more interested in with better pay, double vacation time, and double 401k match. They know I accepted something else and were motivated to move quickly. I’m freaking out about potentially backing out of my accepted offer assuming all goes well with this other company.....

A senior manager sent me a text today to ask if I had sent an email last week, and if not, they would send it right now. I am on PTO today. Am I wrong to feel that was not appropriate? Why couldn’t that have waited. Is it not an acceptable boundary to expect to be left alone when on PTO? How do I properly communicate that to a level above without it coming across badly?

I could use some perspective from my fellow 🐠: had an interview with a Deputy GC a little over 2 weeks ago. They said at the end of the interview that they were going on vacation so it might take a little longer than usual to hear back. They did not provide a timeline for next steps otherwise.

Is this code that they want to move the process forward with other candidates first, or am I overthinking things? Should I follow up or just let the process play out?

Employer requires use of vacation for sick days for non-exempt salaried employees, then surprises everyone with a forced, unpaid week at the end of the year due to shutdowns. At this point, most people that can afford to plan for the week of vacation time they have to use at the end of the year.

Is this common practice? I am pretty sure it is completely legal, but still seems like a bad policy.

I have a possible opportunity at Protiviti. Coming from big4 and wondering if Protiviti has fairly similar perks. I’ve read the 2022 benefits guide and it gave a oddly low PTO count of 16 days. Is this true and what about a holiday disconnect in the December time period? Are there any other hidden perks that are awesome? Already heard WLB is better and the culture, but I feel like I’ve gotta find that out first hand. Protiviti

How consistent are your executives with their holiday gifts? one partner I support gave me $250 my first year with him and $500 last year. I really go above and beyond for him and in my feedback this month he told me I am the best EA he has ever had, so I was expecting at least the same. He has given me nothing this year (always gives it mid december or before I go on break -which I am now) also always give an e-gift card so not like it got lost in the mail. Not sure what to think...

Should I stay with my current company? I have an offer on the table from another company and an offer internally for a different group. Pay about equal. That being said, the perks are slightly different. I’m losing a lot of perks like less PTO at the new place but better insurance overall. What are your thoughts?

Attending a company holiday party where they're doing a white elephant gift exchange. I barely know anyone except through emails and IMs given that most of us WFH. Fun but office appropriate gift ideas $30 or under?

I am currently at a firm and received an in-house offer. Aside from main items like comp and big ticket benefits like PTO/health insurance/401k, what other items do I need to think about discussing/negotiating? For example, fees to keep bar licensure, professional association fees, CLEs, etc. I feel like there is so much on that end I currently take for granted being covered at my firm. Anything else I should consider?

Anyone have experience with a required on-site final interview for a fully remote job? I'll have already had an interview with the hiring manager and a teammate and a presentation of a case study. So with some of the team being fully remote and the role I'm interviewing for being fully remote I'm not sure what I should prepare for the on-site. I really want the role and want to respect their process but it's hard to justify visiting (across the country) and getting time off my current role.

Have a somewhat confusing question hoping to get some insight. I had to cancel a Southwest flight last year due to covid. They issued a credit but informed me I had to book a flight that was before 9/22/21 or the credit would be lost. Here’s my question: if I book the flight so it is before the 22nd and use the credit to pay for it, if I decide to change flight dates to after 9/22 would that transfer over? Or would I have to forfeit the credit and pay for the flight. Hope this makes sense!
