What are some easy to make, low stress holiday meals for a school holiday staff party? I was "volunteered" by our principal to set it up this year (🙄). I'm making decorated sugar cookies but kind of drawing a blank when it comes to savory dishes. Bonus points if you have any adult holiday themed games or fun drinks to suggest! It's off school property and there will be a bar (thank god), for context.
Fortunate enough to have 2 offers on the table 1) In-office Finance Director for 110k 2) Remote Rev Manager for 120k. Remote position also offers more benefits (pto, holidays & sick days). Remote position seems like the better comp package but like the responsibilities more for option 1. Should I try and negotiate with 1 by showing the offering from option 2? Or is remote option the better route?
Working through nanny contract right now. Anything you wish you had put in up front that you didn’t? Also- wrt vacation, how do you handle additional days you take off? We are giving our nanny (cont’d
Please clarify for me. I say if the salary for the position is $52,000, that's what you include when posting the job opening. Ie: Marketing Assistant: $52K. My supervisor says no, the salary is actually 74,000, because she's including health benefits and PTO on top of the 52.. I said if you post 74,000 and the person finds out it's actually 52 (probably with a take home pay of only 38) they will walk. Who's right?
I wonder, why everyone is not applying for FAANG and they’re happy with startups or other companies? (Not talking about who are not able to clear the interviews )
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Please share IQVIA holiday calendar.
Need to plan holidays and functions to attend before joining.
EY folks - we're on holiday tomorrow, right?
Sooo who else isn’t getting a holiday party or a bonus? Want to throw our own party on agency misfit island?
Working my entire vacation in a hotel room...what's the point of all this PTO if we never get to use it 😩
I signed an offer today at another firm (woohoo) going from a large consulting firm to a industry specific M&A firm. Start date is after Labor Day. Not sure now when to put my two weeks notice in. 170 hours of PTO to use or cash out, but I’m in the middle of a project so can’t necessarily just take it. If you were in my shoes, when would you give your two weeks?
I have 3 weeks of vacation that will expire if I don’t take them by July 1st. Any ideas for what to do with the time off? I’m sure intl travel will be impossible, but what about domestic in late June?
I want to call-in sick a couple days next week, but I feel guilty doing so unexpectedly. I’ve only used a couple of my sick days this entire year and they don’t roll over. I could really use the extra time off to re-charge, but I hate letting people down. Should I take them anyway?
Nailed my yearly review. Got at raise and a bonus. Holiday party is tomorrow. So, I may or may not be sitting in my office doing sod all until I can leave for the party tomorrow.
Is it okay to take 3 days of unpaid time off during your two weeks notice if the alternative is giving one week's notice? I'll be out of the country.
Why is it that every time I make plans or have an out of town guest or I am about to go on a holiday, I have to cancel them because of these quick turnaround asks from clients? ALWAYS UNDERSTAFFED.

What do you tell yourself to get over the sticker shock of weddings? I make $220K and my fiancé makes $200k. I know we are both incredibly lucky to have great jobs, but we both have loans and I can’t shake the feeling that we are wasting our money on this wedding. The costs add up SOO fast.

Hi everyone, I’m currently a tax associate and just graduated back in May. I’m starting to feel really burnt out and dislike what I do and want to get out of accounting completely. I can’t deal with the hours and the strictness of billing time. My degree is in business admin (I concentrated in accounting) and want to try something else. I’m currently looking into marketing, diff. analyst positions, and some other stuff. Any suggestions/advice would be helpful! Thank you.
I know Big4 sucks, especially during busy season, but now is the time to join PwC!!! Crazy salaries increases are happening there right now!!!😂

How hard is it for a Staff II in audit to transition to Tech Risk Management at EY or the other big 4 for that matter? Or would it be easier to move to a mid sized firm for a position like that.
Do you guys think that when you make the switch to industry you should try to land a job at a public company? I want to make $300-$400k eventually as a CFO one day and I think that going into a public company will get me there instead of switch to a private. What do you think?
Why are head hunters reaching out to me with middle market investment banking/consulting roles when I am in audit? Not even a CPA. They claim they hire auditors from big four and train them from ground up. Would I be stupid not to ask for more information? Or don’t waste my time. Senior in audit. Thx.

So I’m in the middle of completing my offer. Background check and drug testing are awaiting results. I’m putting in my two week notice tomorrow. Do I disclose where I’m going to next if those items haven’t cleared? I don’t have an official start date yet. I’m not worried about my results but anything can happen over the next two weeks. Don’t wanna put down a future employer without 100% certainty.
Do you always submit a cover letter?
Was so close to switching from IT Audit to software engineering and then a global crisis occurs. Tough to keep my head up.
