We laid a bunch of people off before Christmas last year. Oh wait, that was the worst present.

💵 💵 💵 and an extra vacation day.

The week off...hypothetically but always have worked through half of it.

MacBook Air. Oh, the good ol days of Ad Tech in 2013

Surprise “resignations” here.

Can y’all get specific with the dollar amounts?! 😝

Ounce of gold

One year, at Saatchi, the executives sent a memo out that since the economy was bad, they were foregoing bonuses. They put out a press release. It was millions of dollars. None of us peons even knew they got such bonuses. But now, we knew that they had. So generous and selfless of them. We also got a self-published Kevin Roberts book. Went right in trash

A change in upper management.

week off

Cash and an Apple Watch, I think it was a tax evasion scheme though.

Cash.

Can you take of the first week of January in industry? I am thinking about leaving PA for industry, but my SO’s family booked family vacation for the first week of January 2022 and I didn’t get a say in the dates. Will companies let me take off the first week of January even though they will most likely be closing the books? Do I stay completely miserable in PA for another year knowing I would be able to get that week off?? Any advice is welcome!

At what point is it a good time to buy a second (vacation) home? Don’t plan to use as a rental. Would be great to get advice from those that have done it.

We have been talking about this for a while, we are both super cheap given how we grew up and are having a hard time pulling the trigger.
