Anyone have suggestions for holiday gifts for their secretary? I am a first year associate and one of several attorneys she works for. I have not been with the firm very long and haven’t asked her to do too much (so I don’t know her very well to get a personalized gift) but would like to send her something. Thanks!
My SO’s family invited me on a European vacation and I’m going. However, I am terrified of telling my mother. My parents aren’t the most financially stable. My mom has a lot of regret about how her life turned out and often exhibits a lot of toxic jealousy toward people with more money than them. She especially is jealous of how others get to travel. I’m worried that telling her will make her feel shitty, uncomfortable, and like she can’t keep up with her potential future in-laws … (1/2)
Currently on PIP but have to take vacations for two and half weeks due to family issues. I’m worried if I’ll give a bad impression and fail my pip because of my vacation days. What should I do?
How much time off is everyone taking between now and the new year? Me: 2 weeks but I’m guessing others taking way more.
Au pair users - how many weeks vacation do they get/do you give? Is it via agency or at your discretion? Do you adjust pay if more than a couple weeks?
Who has ever had work put pressure on them to cancel a pre-planned holiday that had been approved with plenty of notice? Thank you.
What’s the common etiquette on taking vacation before you quit? Is it okay or is it better to just quit and not take vacation? I’m working for a ~20 person firm
I’m sure many of you have vacations that had to be canceled. I’m currently out of range but how did you all get your money back? (Mid May - mid June vacation planned to Europe)
Just got pregnant. My baby supposed to come May 2022. I work at pwc and we have busy season Jan-March. I wanted to do my baby moon end of March and take a 2 week vacation. I m so scared to even ask HR if that’s okay. This is my first pregnancy btw. Has anyone ever done this? TIA
Do your firms allow you to “earn” extra pto days after long stretches of work? I just finished a two week stretch of 14 hr/days and asked for this Friday off, only to be told it would be a pto day...
Going back to work after vacation is so hard.
Wait a minute... do you accrue PTO in your last two weeks after providing two weeks notice?
Working for an RFP while on forced PTO. Working yesterday and today. I really want to lint my CV and find another job.
Looking to buy a vacation home on the west coast not in a major city. West coast so it doesn’t take too long to get there. Could consider other areas, but don’t want to spend too much time traveling there. Budget is under $700k for 3 bedroom, at least 2k sqft. Any ideas?
Do you include unrealized PTO into your net worth if your company pay it out once terminated/you leave and you don’t lose it at the end of each year? Essentially guaranteed money if you don’t use it so not sure why one wouldn’t include it 🤔
Since raises are cancelled at many companies, are there ones giving any alternative rewards with this spring cycle? Extra PTO?
Go-to vacation destinations for family with younger kids (8 and 5) for spring break time frame?
My firm’s IT (especially system saving and file locating function) is so bad 😐😞 and they keep doing updates no one asked them for just to mess with the stuff we already got a hang of without doing anything about the issues we actually need fixed. Anyone else in a similar boat? Do you bill the client for the time it takes to fix the IT issue (or IT inefficiency generally, like time taken to find a file in a convoluted system)? Or is that supposed to be our non-billable time?
What are your thoughts on sending out company/region-wide farewell slack messages when quitting? What’s a good way to announce but not be annoying in this remote world? I was gonna do an Irish goodbye but felt that was a little disrespectful.
Tough day. Layoffs at JL, Ogilvy, huge and R/GA
