The best thing about getting laid off before the holiday party is that you don’t have to worry about getting fired after the holiday party.

Friendly reminder to negotiate your PTO!

Go ahead and ask for that additional week of PTO.

It's something my companies have always said yes to, with no hesitation. Plus your PTO most likely won't change until you get those tenure increases (5 years, 10 years...) so DO IT. The worst thing they can say is that it's against company policy to change PTO policy for 1 person.

Any firms hiring in the healthcare space? Was laid off due to covid-19 a few months ago and would love some help getting back to work. Thank you In advance for the help/suggestions.

Joined Deloitte recently. PDM model.
Couple days ago found out that PTO not counted towards utilization.
I need to go to my home country and get married this December.
I don’t think I can bill more than 40 hours.
So people do not take vacation/PTO in PDM model? Is changing job the only option or there is some other way. Please advice. (except ‘you shouldn’t have joined on PDM’ please)
Thanks.

Industry vets - in your experience how recession proof is insurance? I was not yet in the job market last recession but I watched my mom get laid off and struggle to find employment during that time for the next 1.5 years. I was wanting to hit the job market towards the end of this year, but now I worry that if I do move companies, the recession could put me in position of last one hired first one fired. Is it better to stay put?
