Tfw youre going on vacation but still have a crap load of work unfinished and a lot more new work waiting for you when you come back... And of course I’ll be thinking about that while on “vacation”..
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?
Have taken an unpaid leave to spend time/vacation with family in my home country. It’s caused an issue with my manager which is making me anxious and depressed. How can I compartmentalize my anxiety and be present with family for the next few weeks before going back to the office?
Took PTO to make it a four day weekend...first few hours back today and I already feel stressed out, anxious and like I want to quit. Burn out or just advertising?
To all the 🐠 who serve/d our country and their families - thank you for this holiday weekend. 🇺🇸
How often do you take a vacation?
Anyone ever put off using PTO days and instead “worked from home” during a planned vacation before they resigned in order to cash out the PTO later? I really don’t want to carry my work laptop when I leave on vacation, but the idea of cashing out the PTO when I end up leaving the job (not yet planned or official) is real nice.
What’s the maximum PTO payout if I quit? I’ve got a ton of hours saved up. Like 8 weeks. Will I get all of it?
Dumb question but if I’m taking PTO Friday-Monday, is my end time at 12AM on that Monday or Tuesday on outlook?
Did you wait for your background check to be completed before giving your notice? What about the final step of contacting the current employer? I have been emailing the team regularly to find out the status so I can give my notice and take some time off
Going on a team vacation to the beach and I think I’m kind of into this one female coworker I work closely with. What should I do fam?
What are chances of getting rejected after PDM round accepting salary which was offered. As there is no call from HR and not picking my call from 3 weeks.
I’ve been totally buried in work for the last 2.5ish months and it’s taken a toll on me. I’m feeling very burned out, to the point where my productivity has tapered off over the past two weeks and I’m no longer able to bill the hours I want. I genuinely try, but at a certain point each day (usually around 6.5 hours) I just feel like I can’t do it anymore. My family is urging me to take PTO to recharge, but I’m too scared about losing more hours to actually do it. Does anyone have any advice?
That time HRC and Liz Warren invited the KPMG intern to a 3some and the KPMG intern replied,"but but but Bernie and Bill are my sugar daddies"
Got a screener with a recruiting person. What are some of the differences in the approach to the interview as opposed to having a screener with an attorney? Do I basically treat the interview the same way? Are there any specific questions that I should ask in this type of interview? Any input and anecdotes are appreciated!
I got a fat raise and promotion this year but that hasn’t cured my depression. Considering leaving and a paycut to just make it to next year alive.
Hello! I’m currently in Talent Acquisition Operations, and although I do love Operations and all things related to process/efficiency, I really want to pivot away from Talent Acquisition/Recruitment. After some research and initial soul searching, I have started the Google UX Design Certification… but I’m wondering if anyone has any other recommendations of careers that might blend my love of process improvement with the opportunity to be creative? Thanks!
Hi D&A 🐟, I’ve been thinking of doing a career pivot from cyber security to data science. My current role is very technical and have experience with Python, PowerShell, AWS (SAA cert), Azure (Security Engineer cert in progress), and a bunch of other cyber security related technical skills. I have experience doing basic data analysis but not at the level of a data scientist. What would you recommend I do to gain these data scientist skills? I think the end goal would be to transition from cybe
Friend was laid off last year and said you get 2 months severance for every year with the firm -- can anyone validate? Is this the case for all levels?
Does anyone else’s shoulders and neck get super stiff/tired within a day of working? I stretch, foam roll everyday and have an ergonomic chair with my monitors at eye level. Not sure what else to do.
This might be a silly question, but I’m joining a local project and want to get a notebook. How do I ask my project for one?
My husband (non-adv) just got a job in San Diego. I’ll be looking soon then. Looks like vitro is the biggest game in town? Anyone have first-hand knowledge of the good and bad there? Specifics appreciated!
I have a friend who unfortunately was just laid off as a bank teller. He has four years of experience, but has never done consulting. Is this something that he could try his hand at? Or do you think that he should have more experience or certifications under his belt first? Trying to see if he can start as a consultant.
Has anyone attempted to or actually yoloed by billing 2k hours for the year then just going awol on an extended vacation until the next year? Put that unlimited vacation time and those minimum hours to the test. Honestly can't see why I should essentially do work for free after hitting hours.

Are you guys working remotely? How do you think this will affect us? Will executives find we are no longer essential? I’m happy we are WFH but am nervous our jobs will be the first cuts made.
