Advice needed: my stepmom pays for our vacation every year but she is a monster. I say we all pay our own way and dissolve her hold. The others say just deal with it for a free vacation. She is controlling, mean, and creates a stressful environment. I started getting my own hotel down the street but that made my siblings very mad. So I said Fine everyone pay next year and they folded. I hate it there. But they are my family.

Hey could use some honest opinions on this because I’m still in shock. I was preparing to give in my resignation + 2 weeks from EY on Monday to jump ship to Deloitte. I accepted the offer from Deloitte on Friday, and I just got hit with a bomb today that my brother has cancer and we have no idea what stage it’s at. Should I just rescind my acceptance from Deloitte? I don’t know how it would be taken if I start at a new firm and immediately need substantial flexibility and time off.

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.

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).

Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.

Hey guys.
