For HR folks, what do companies do when you resign during the holiday shutdown period? Do they let you go immediately?

👀 Still looking for an apartment swap in NYC. I have a clean apartment in Mexico City. The dates are October 27th to November 3rd, Day of the Dead holiday weekend. With LOTS happening. Located in the best area of Mexico City with a ton of restaurants, cafes, and parks. High speed internet with standing desk, large TV, external monitor, and more. Message me your email or phone number and we can text to exchange pictures and more information.
Anyone else get anxious about requesting PTO? I know it's so stupid to feel anxious about it but I still do.
CPA Question - for those who studied full-time for the CPA (40+ hours/week), how long did it take you to study for and pass each section? I am potentially taking some time off in the summer, and I’m curious how long I should take (up to 3 months).
How are our PR peeps managing optics ;or getting ahead of bad PR) for large holiday gatherings, talent feeling pressured to join a group celebration? Financial aspect of large event vs. raises at standstill, low headcount budget? Sounds like there are it if executive heads in the sand, despite December fast approaching.
I want to wish everyone an amazing holiday season, whatever one you do celebrate. May one gift be relaxation for you all. I just want to say Merry Christmas and I hope that you have an amazing New Year.
Deloitte moms, I need your guidance. For some reason, someone (not sure which team) has marked my maternity leave (LOA) starting next week on DTE and I can’t update it to show PTO. I have repeatedly told the Leaves team and MetLife that I’m not starting LOA until the baby comes (due date 10/31, no baby yet). Whom do I contact to fix the DTE issue? If this happened to you, what did you do?
Best vacation city or places to visit during December? We have two kids( 5 & 2 years)…looking for better weather city, beaches , park and some outdoor activities

Ladies, what are you planning on wearing to the holiday party? I never know what to wear to 'festive' work events.
Curious what other people's parental leave looks like for companies of a similar size and industry. We are about 150 employees in the CPG (beverage) space. We want to improve/expand our paid leave. How much paid time do you give your employees? Do you give the same amount for the primary and secondary caregiver? Please include your company size and industry.
Anyone ever negotiated parental leave before? I have an offer on the table. Gave me what I asked for $ wise and PTO. But mat leave is not great. Not trying to have a baby now, but in the next 5 yrs.
If company offers unlimited PTO, what else beside salary can you negotiate on an offer? Benefit package is standard (health insurance) and they do not offer 401k matching yet.
Just got offered a new job. Ideally, I really want to help my current company as much as I can and be there through cyber week (11/30) before leaving. I also want to take time off between jobs because I am so burnt out. Is early December way too far away of a start date to propose to the new job? Will they look at me like I’m crazy?
I’m three emails away from a week long vacation and my outlook won’t open. Going on hour 2 of IT support. FML.
Ok, I’m feeling a bit defeated with the job hunt so coming here… how does one actually land an interview within FAANG?? I actually think my experience is applicable and my friends in FAANG always say how good of a fit I would be but for the love of God I can’t get past the resume screen. Can anyone who’s done this successfully provide advice?
Any insight on interview process for Human Capital? I have my first round scheduled with a DC manager. TIA
