Still early in my pregnancy and don’t want tell our friends yet. Will go to a holiday party with friends with lots of alcohol. I’m never one to not have a glass of drink - what are some good excuses to tell friends on why I’m not drinking?
When do you guys think we can start going on a vacation? Safely. I am soo bored and tired of washing groceries!! How do you guys plan to utilise your leaves??
Advice needed! I am currently in a toxic work environment making $60k (commission structure is okay, no 401k match, in office 4 days/week and 10 days PTO), I am in the final rounds for a role at an awesome company with great culture and upward mobility, but the pay is $55k (equity, uncapped commission, remote, and unlimited PTO). I think I would love the role, and I’m sure the total comp with equity and commission would be very similar to my current role, but I am still hung up the lower salary
Spouse and I are about to book a riviera maya vacation for early November 2021. We’re both vaccinated, we know we’ll need to produce a negative test. Any other reason it would be unwise to go? I want to make sure we aren’t overlooking any factors. Thank you!
I'm amazed at how many people walk through the door with no idea how to behave in an interview. Look, I get it. This is for a warehouse job and we're hiring like crazy in anticipation for the holiday season, so my expectations aren't mega-high. But... holy shit. Here's a short list of what I've seen in my three days: 1) I've interviewed maybe twenty people, and our unit all together has had maybe 150 since I've arrived. Of those, THREE people showed up in appropriate interview attire. A lady came in wearing a juicy couture tracksuit today. A maroon one. 2) One guy tried to sell me weed. During his interview. 3) One guy commented that I was "nice for a white person". Then he tried to hit on me. During the interview.
Is it realistic in big law to take 20 days of mostly uninterrupted vacation time a year? My firm has unlimited and my group doesn’t take more than a couple days off a year. I like the work and people but there’s no way I can or will stay long term without being able to take 20 days of real vacation a year for my health and to live my life. Firm policy says while vacation is unlimited they encourage 20 days. What’s the temperature in the room on this ?
For anyone who has left public accounting, anything you wish you had done before leaving? e.g. using corporate discounts, PTO, etc.?
I have a 2 week vacation ahead in June but want to give notice to go to a competitor. Will they let me take my days or will they just dismiss me?
Tips on preparing for the California Bar? I’m writing in July and my firm has given me 6 weeks paid time off to prepare, but don’t know if that’s sufficient time or if I should self study in advance while working as well.

Best shows to binge on Netflix/Hulu to get me through the holiday season? I feel the Christmas noose beginning to tighten.
Is anyone taking vacation during quarantine
I work in a group where no one takes vacation...my group is small with 4 people and because none of them ever take it I feel weird doing so myself. Even if they do take vacation, they NEVER have their out of the office on, I guess maybe for optics, so I never really know. Has anyone dealt with similar situation? Advice on how to handle?
One of my friends bought 600 bitcoins in 2013. He's turning his notice today, and planning to take a long vacation. I want to be happy for him, but all I can feel is anger.
Only place I know of where I can ask a question, and hopefully not sound like a creep... so here it goes. I am on vacation with some family and got a massage. My male cousin mentioned he has only had massages with happy endings and asked if women do the same. I said I had never, but now I am curious, does that actually happen? Do women get happy endings too?
My grandma passed away yesterday and it’s been tough to focus. Today & tmrw, it’s only my partner and me who haven’t planned on taking PTO on my team. He’s been understanding, but (Continued)

I have an upcoming interview with EY for an advisory consultant role in the government space. EY employees / alumni, what should I know about EY that differentiates them from other Big4 companies? Anything happen in the news that’s noteworthy?
Are you hostile or pleasant when you meet another set of consultants in the client lobby?
Curious to see what junior staff thinks separates good mangers vs shitty managers. Example: Too much micro management on deliverables, etc
Why don't more (white collar) Americans take breaks in-between jobs? Like a month or two summer break. Is this mindset that you need to work all the time a vestige from back when people would work at the same company for 40 years until they die?
If a partner sent out a racist email and it got forwarded to you, would you report it to ethics? He basically suggested a team name that equates to something along the lines of "ching chang chong".
I don't understand the level of bitching on this app. Do you guys really work that much? I haven't done shit all weekend for the second year. Am I just lucky? I feel people just create work...
