I recently got a job offer while the salary is good they are only offering 40hours of PTO until the first year is up then they offer 80hours, is this normal? If not how should I go about asking for more? I thought it was fairly average for someone to get 10 days especially since Ive been in the industry for 7 years.

First time Dad and my 15 month old keeps running up the stairs at my in-laws place and they keep encouraging it. Stairs are almost 10 inches high with nothing underneath and I’m worried that he might slip and fall in between the stairs. My FIL is a bit of a know-it-all and keeps insisting it’s safe and I don’t agree. What do I do? Don’t want to fight the entire house full of people about this and kid enjoys it too much and cries a lot if I/we prevent him from climbing

My client is a bully and treats me badly. He forces me to work till late by giving unrealistic timelines. Sometimes I end up working 18 hrs a day. From past 6 months, I haven't taken a proper vacation and now when I decided to take a 3 day leave during Thanksgiving, he questioned that. I'll take the leave anyway but all this impacts my mental health. I can't quit due to visa issues. Any tips to handle a bully?

I work for a Fortune 500 company, publicly traded. It has no maternity leave, 6 holidays. No sick days (must use PTO). Total of 15 PTO. No summer hours. Is this the worst benefit you see out there?

Hi all! I was asked coordinate a local happy hour for my team. The issue I’m having is that I’m currently pregnant and am not sure if I’m comfortable to hang out with strangers. What’s the most professional way to say no without hurting feelings / burning bridges? Or should I suck it up and go?

Have you ever changed your mind a week after turning down the job offer? It’s so hard when you’ve got small children getting sick all the time and you want to start fresh with no PTO.

But I just called their HR Dept to ask if the job is still available. They just signed a contract with a temp agency. However, they’re looking into reversing it and will let me know.
Where would I go from here??? I’d essentially be giving my boss less than a week’s notice. And I look flippant. :(

I gave my two weeks notice to my boss this week. But he’s pretty upset that I didn’t give more time or more advanced notice that I was leaving.

It makes me feel sick to my stomach that he feels this way and I certainly didn’t mean for it to be like that. I feel like I really screwed up.
