Plan to leave the firm within the next 6 months and use my PTO every other Friday because I can’t handle this work any longer—it has destroyed my mental health, along with the pandemic and all the shit going on in the world. I’m grateful to have a job but I can’t do this any more. I’m fully staffed on an engagement, but can I still request PTO every 2 weeks (just trying to use them up at this point)? Don’t care about promos, don’t care about this line of work and industry
First time having president’s day holiday in the company but still worked. I guess that’s the life of an accountant- No president’s day holiday.
Looking to take a family vacation out west in August and my mom really want to go to Big Sky. I really want to do Yellowstone, but I feel like it’s best to stay in the park for a couple of nights to really experience Yellowstone, rather than a day trip in from Big Sky. Thinking we should do a couple nights in Big Sky and a couple nights in Yellowstone. Planning to fly in and out of Bozeman. Any recommendations for Big Sky or Yellowstone? Anyone stayed in Yellowstone?
I did it! I just resigned without a solid backup plan. I will take some time off, chill, go on vacation, will get inspired again and am looking forward to new adventures and challenges.
I got let go from my job while on vacation. Found out through emails removing my access to brand pages and then received confirmation about it. I’m overwhelmed and can’t focus on the positive just yet
👀 Still looking for an apartment swap in NYC. I have a clean apartment in Mexico City. The dates are October 27th to November 3rd, Day of the Dead holiday weekend. With LOTS happening.

To all the 🐠 who serve/d our country and their families - thank you for this holiday weekend. 🇺🇸
Anyone else feel like being “encouraged” to take time off when things are slow is a bit disingenuous from leaderships. When I really need time off is when I am working 60 hour weeks back to back for 3 months Karen, not now during a week I’m unassigned.
Labor Day according to Wikipedia is an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers. Labor Day has its origins in the labor union movement which advocated for 8 hours of work a day. Me: *laughs in PA
Coming off of my first real, full week of PTO in my 10+ year career (my fault... that was self- imposed) and WOW. I actually feel refreshed, comfortable with returning tomorrow and grateful that my firm and team did not once try to grab my attention for literally anything. Take your PTO, folks. I'm serious. It helps.

Junior working with ex v5 senior in M&A. He consistently asks me to turn major deliverables at the worst hours, think 10 pm Friday/Sat/Sun night “tonight” or “by tomorrow morning” even when there is no closing date in sight. When I push back he says my behavior is unacceptable. The times when I have been able to actually meet his expectations and give him the deliverable for review, he will get back to me with comments at least a week later. Sick of these false deadlines. Help
