Vacation ideas for Thanksgiving? Six of us (ages 25 to 60) and everyone’s vaccinated. Thought about going to the Caribbean but I guess it’s the wet/hurricane season at that time. We’d be traveling from LA and Chicago and it’s only for a week if that helps. Any places you’ve enjoyed during late November?

Aruba is just south of the hurricane area, so a safe bet for Thanksgiving

It’s been years but we have done St kitts, Dominican, and Cozumel over thanksgiving before. 12 of us same age range. I was in middle school at the time so it was fun for me. All places were all inclusive marriotts and flew from NYC/Boston

Thanksgiving has previously been my favorite time to travel. Hawaii, Mexico, or Virgin Islands would be my recommendations if you only have a week. Portugal also had decent weather in November.

Portugal would be great. Might be a bit far for the people traveling from LA. I would recommend The Azores - probably one of my favorite destinations I’ve been to. I’ll check out the other options you mentioned

Bermuda

Costa Rica!

Airlines typically have business class fare sales (<$2,000 roundtrip) to Europe that week since there’s little business travel.

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.

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). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.

So is my H1B only till Feb 2023 or it can extended to allow for the remaining period?
