How do I as a staff push back against supervisors wanting me to work overtime/weekends outside of busy season? We just had an awful busy season. I was the most utilized staff in my office. I don’t have it in me to work overtime until the next busy season. I’m at my breaking point.
What kind of work is done in Microsoft Dynamics CRM in Big4 ? I am getting calls from all of them. I am in a service based organisation now. What kind of changes I need to embrace if I move to Big 4. I am purely on the technical side with a YoE of 7. Also few of my colleagues are saying to avoid Big4 and go for Service based MNCs only. Really confused.

I’m looking for feedback on PEOs, specifically for our EMEA expansion. We are taking to Globalization Partners, Velocity Global, Safeguard Global and potentially Insperity.

How do I check my actual utilization (not the effective one). Mybusiness only tells me the effective utilization
Wasting many hours on mundane tasks of data extrapolation and formatting in Excel and PowerPoint (due to limited junior staff and programmers). Has been happening for a while due to us being short-staffed. I don't see myself "above" these tasks per se, but it's taking nearly 50%+ of my time. The mundane tasks can't be automated simply either (I have no programming background). I don't feel like I'm being utilized well given my background/experience. Is this a dead end? Common experience?

I have rented out my flat in India, approx Rs. 15K per month. Do I need to report this income to IRS? Working on H1B here
When people talk about savings, do they mean including 401k (with it without the match) or is it only what’s additional on top of 401k which is assumed to be maxed out? I ask because I hear people saving 30-40k and im wondering if that’s ~20k in 401k and 20k otherwise.

Do you/your team members ever use a platform that's not company sanctioned? We like Slack but the company has everyone on Teams. We communicate with other people on Teams and it doesn't harm our productivity but we just work really well on Slack within ourselves. Don't know if that's a problem.
