I've noticed that a lot of angel group meetings happen during the work day. My understanding is that most angels have other day jobs. Do people just take time off work to go to these meetings? Are most angels entrepreneurs themselves?
Just got dumped after 6 months. We had a serious connection so I thought, said we loved each other, talked about future, looked like I was everything he said he wanted. But he thought I was out of his league, more established, there was an age difference, I have older kids, he has one young child. I lurked on his IG and he is on vacation with someone else 😂🥺 I’m HEARTBROKEN. How tf do I recover?!?
My husbands mom lives with us and we usually get along fine, but today I am over it. WFH means being with her 24/7 and after the holiday's I am just done. I wish it was just the 2 of us again. Can I force his sister to take her? I want my house back, but I also don't want to be the crabby wife.
Been itching for a trip. Want to do something solo, drop the locations for best solo destinations. I have 22 PTO days so want to start exploring
If I have 21 RSUs vesting may 21 but another job offer (not from a FAANG but from a Series D SaaS), could I ask new company to “buy out” my RSUs? They want me to start May 1 so I can go on a company trip end of May. What are options people have tried? I don’t want to stay at Amazon until May 23 because will miss the trip with my new company and not have any time off in between jobs (I’m burnout). Amazon
Wayfair Wants us to work Black Friday week but says we have to make up our free thanksgiving holiday they gave us for regular pay first before we can get double pay, is it just me or that sneaky? I’d rather get double to work the holiday! 😡 thoughts? Wayfair
Would you go on an international vacation shortly after a frozen embryo transfer (5-10 days after)? It is looking like my first transfer opportunity will be shortly before a trip I already have planned. I’d rather not wait, and the one time I have been pregnant before I implanted on a international vacation but I don’t know if this is a stupid thing to do? I have a very stressful job so maybe it would be good to be away from work?? Curious what others think.
I’m hearing about so many company holiday parties. We’ve never had one and it makes me so bummed out! Is it just my group/dept? Do any of you oracle peeps have a holiday party??
Sooo ready for the holiday party on Friday.
A sign I need to fire some clients: when my out of office email reply hits the next reaction is to immediately call my cellphone. Nope. Call the number I left in the email to gain assistance. I cannot help you from jury duty, the doctor’s office, vacation, or anywhere else I might be when the auto replay directs you elsewhere.
Hi Ladies, Im in my end 20s and feel like my life is passing by and everyday feels the same. I just came back from a weekend trip with my family and I always feel that I can’t enjoy it 100%. My mind is not present. When I’m on vacation I think about work and want to get back to work and missing all the great quality time I supposed to have. When I’m working I want to go on vacation. I hate this feeling and it’s driving me insane. Do you have any advice?
POV: I’m a corporate junior associate and I am 250 hours behind my target to make hours this year (need 2k for bonus). Am I just SOL at this point? My fear is that I’m busting my ass and saying yes to every deal to try to make it up but if I don’t make my hours anyway, I didn’t have to try so hard and stress. (Also, I have about 2 weeks of vacation planned before the holidays so I’ll have to make that up too)
Inexpensive 2/3 day trips to take during the summer from LA? Trying to save up money/time off for a large Euro trip in fall but realize I need something to look forward to this summer.
What consulting firms have the best WLB? How many hours per week do you work? Are weekends safe? Is vacation safe?
Have seen comp for NACR (restructuring) listed at around 150-200 for analysts, 200-275 for associates, and one mention of senior associates at 375k. Supposedly NACR gets crushed in terms of hours. But i've also read that targets are around 2000 hours per year? Something doesn't add up.....e.g. Associate $550/hr * 25% cap rate * 2000 billable hrs = $275k.......but 2000 hours is slightly over 40 hours a week (including 4 weeks vacay), not the 80 hr/week. So is there a ton of time on vacation?
I had final techno manager round which was completed on 30 Mar, and after ugadi holiday, on 6th I have received the positive feedback and confirmation mail and asked to share the payslips and relevant documents.

Me: I told [the partner] I wouldn't tolerate his masturbatory condescension. I said it a little differently though. My Wife: Oh REALLY?! You didn't say it just like that?
Hi Steve. Thanks for taking the time. I was wondering how you decided to take, or maybe reconciled taking, a job at an often notorious agency beyond pay raise & title? Why fight for Gary #hustle Vee?
