Over the holiday shut down I want to really do some things to have alone time and relax. Anyone have a recommendation for a great spa anywhere that’s easy to get to? Either in NYC or an easy place to get to outside? I would love a spot with a serenity room and with hot tubs etc. please share anything you know and if you recommend a specific massage therapist or treatment or anything. Or if you have other spots like Buddhist temples or anything where I can get some relaxation. Thanks!
Does anyone know how much roughly the PTO pay out would be if I quit and didn’t use all my vacation days? I live in California.
Holiday presents for daycare teachers- giving gift cards but have absolutely no idea how much to spend. What is normal these days?
My confession is… I’m spending too much this Christmas on presents. Like, almost 1 months worth of pay, after tax. So, what are you getting your loved ones this holiday?
My friends - let’s say you have an offer slated to start in a couple of months. would you use up your vacation time at existing company? Or resign, get paid the vacation from current company and then go on your vacation after your last day?
I’m in industry with 3 direct reports and another 6 indirect reports. What small holiday gift can I send them? Trying to stay under $250 total.
I had multiple mediations recently. I do management side employment law. Overall I’m walking away feeling like what the heck are we paying the mediators for? I’m tired of the mediators saying they don’t want to hear about the merits of the case. The merits are DIRECTLY tied to the amount of settlement authority I have. I feel like our clients are getting worked way more than the plaintiffs side. Also plaintiffs have followed up every single settlement with “can we get the funds before holiday?”
I was planning a West Coast vacation between Christmas and new year. All bookings done. Now with the new Covid variant - I don’t really know!! Super sad to think i might have to cancel it
NYC Lash Recs Please!!! My sister and I want to get our lashes done before the holiday! Mai Lashes is completely booked otherwise we would go there! Lol I didn’t love my lashes at the Lash Loft in flatiron.
For people that tested positive for COVID, did you take time off even if the symptoms were mild? Or did you just power through it?
Several PPMD and Senior Manager level colleagues that I’ve worked with over the past year have recently asked for my mailing address. My assumption is that I’ll receive a holiday card from these people or… a gift? 0 expectations here but is this a common practice? Should I be sending them something in return?
How much do you tip your building for XMas/holiday bonus? The doorman/staff have been awesome so want to make sure I’m tipping a good amount after a tough year.
What are people’s comfort levels with Office Holiday parties this year given the new covid cases etc?
Can one take vacation during notice period? Given year end I don’t want to lose my vacation days
Having second thoughts about going to my office’s holiday party indoors in NYC after reading https://www.google.com/amp/s/abovethelaw.com/2021/12/biglaw-holiday-party-turns-into-covid-outbreak/%3famp=1 . Is everyone attending their office parties?
Had multiple negative rapid tests and an initial negative PCR tests last week. Only to get a call this AM from local urgent care saying a glitch in the portal system falsely reported negative PCR test results, and the results are positive. I recently attended my company’s holiday party. I’m fully vaxxed w/ no symptoms, I’ve already contacted work and friends I was w/ over the weekend. What do I do now?
Since the thanksgiving holiday I have zero motivation to work. I’ve just been watching Netflix 🥲
Curious do you guys celebrate Christmas, other holidays? And not looking for religious bashing. Just curious for eg. I am big on Christmas/ holiday spirit. I get a tree, lighting, gifts, sweaters. But similarly I have family who get very mad at wishing Merry Christmas. I am curious where you guy’s heads are at. Any cultural differences between eg black vs Arab vs south Asian Muslims etc.
Are you entitled to parental leave benefits from Day 1 at Accenture? We will have a baby within the first year of me working at Accenture…trying to confirm whether I’ll be eligible for leave benefits.

Does anyone work at FTI Consulting in their Corporate Reputation group? Can anyone speak to the work and culture?
A college hire analyst just threw my Chick Fil A bag in the trash at the airport and lectured me about inclusion. Not sure how to respond right now just went to the other side of the boarding area.
Is that true EY just laid of people that are on visa and called it “performance” related?
Do any firms offer medical insurance benefits that cover IVF, freezing eggs, or surrogate assistance?
I have 1 yr 7 months tax experience with 2 offers, BDO exp associate 78k in core tax, a smaller firm as a tax semi senior 75k with 3k sign on bonus. This is NYC just want to know If the comps are fair and thoughts…. Smaller firm caps busy season at 50 hrs with possible promotion to senior next year
How long does H1B transfer LCA approval take these days? I know the normal processing time is 7 business days. Anyone got it faster?
Any EY folks know how PAS interviews (experienced staff role) are structured? Is it just standard behavioral and case interview?

AA ✈️💺 Benchmarking: I’m often curious as to the spend for folks above / below on the upgrade list. Perhaps others are also curious, too? Would AA folks post: Home airport / EQD / EQM / EQS?
TCS, IBM or WIPRO?? TCS and IBM: similar take home salary WIPRO : around 10k more than TCS and IBM. Need suggestions on WLB, hikes and benefits. Thanks in advance.
McKinsey folks - someone referred me for a BA intern role but I’ve applied for a BA role. Will the recruiter team still the referral on my application?
Confused Working Mom. Should I opt for the Operations Support or Project tasks? Need WLB but afraid of missing on latest tech if I keep working on mundane tasks in Operations. I hate the repetitive work too. Was working on implementation projects prior to Switching companies. But now getting only support projects. Just an above average performer in implementation. YOE : 8.6
Still on my parents insurance plan - can I set up an HSA and max it out? Currently max my 401k and Roth IRA. Is it through the ibm portal or can I just set up fidelity
