Unlimited PTO: how many days/weeks do you usually take? Do you use it in bulk (1-2 weeks at a time) or scatter it around the calendar?
It's been 20+ months of remote. The world had changed. Accept it. How to be a competative employer in the New Normal: -Remote completely -Yearly company wide team building week in an exotic resort (think Deloitte University) + Quarterly team based meetup at a WeWork -WFH setup & wifi / cell phone paid + $X stipend for coffee / lunch etc. Virtual hh. -training budget -good team culture and reasonable WLB -holiday time shut down for min 1 week -leverage Slack, GSuite, Jira, Asana, etc
How do you spread your vacation days out over the course of the year? (Not interested in the gunners or lackies who don’t take any)
How is RSM PTO? Understand it’s unlimited, which limits more than accrued, but any insight on what you like/dislike?
Do we have holiday for holi this year in Microsoft, Bangalore? Can anyone please share me the holiday list of Marchb at Microsoft? I need it to negotiate joining date of mine. Microsoft
Does anyone work for Trinity Health Corporate? Specifically Epic? Curious how work life balance is working fully remote? How salary compares to other hospital systems? I have an Epic certification. I saw online that pto benefits are less than ideal for new employees.
Here we go! Traveling on vacation for the next week and didn’t bring my Adderall (which I’ve been abusing for the past year). Hoping to wean myself off of it during the vacation. Wish me luck￼￼￼￼￼￼
Need to work today but am prepping for a huge holiday party (family friends, not firm) and can't concentrate on anything work related.
Anyone ever brought a same-sex plus one to a company holiday party? How was it perceived?
A depressing holiday by any measure
Thoughts please? I have two offers on the table. One for $75k another for $68k. I like the lesser paying job much better. They actually bumped their offer 8K after I told them I had a better offer. They’re checking in tomorrow to see if I’ve made a decision but I would like them to go a little higher -even if it’s just 70k or even add a week of vacation (the higher paying employers package is better) Is it worth it to ask the lesser paying job for more again?
Anyone have advice on taking/requesting time off for a family member’s illness? I’ve used my vacation days for the year and just trying to gauge general response for additional time off (a week tops)
Bain is hosting holiday party at Joy District Club in Chicago… KPMG needs to step it up…
How many vacation days do you get?
Finally hit my breaking point. Been nothing but irritable & pissed off these past few weeks. Coach asked me on Friday when I’ll be taking time off & I just broke down. I’m a top performer & a workhorse. I’ve put so much effort into making sure my team is okay I forgot about myself. Now I am buried in work, performance is dropping & I can’t stop crying randomly. I kept telling people I am drowning but no one was listening. Coach is leaning to tell everyone to backoff thankfully.
Just started work half a year ago but hitting a rough patch and finding it hard to function. Realistically I may need time off but don’t feel comfortable asking for that ... how to go about at work?
Nice! The post animation looks good!

I’m in Dallas right now and have an offer in Chicago (work in Chicago is much more interesting to me, quite similar base pay for the first few months and then increase 20%). Is it worth it to move?
How do I postpone an offer? I’m waiting to find out about 4 other opportunities that make more financial (and fun) sense but the other 4 are being slow and company 1 is really persistent. 😞
Google is providing all US-based employees weekly COVID tests by mail using bioiQ. Any consulting firms out there doing the same? Seems like a great perk.
So… is Strategy& getting Monitor’d? Looks like the beginning of a massive reorg from the outside.
