Agreed to take a 30 minute call despite having scheduled PTO...3 hours later I finally closed my laptop. This job definitely takes whatever you’re willing to give and then some...
A resource I'm overseeing is ghosting PTO hours - i.e. not charging any for half days or lumping in 45 hours for M-Th with 0 hours on Friday. Is this something you'd escalate to management?
Recommendations for a family friendly (preferably all inclusive) resort in Asia? Looking to go on vacation with husband and in laws and 8-month old, and not completely break the bank.
I got horribly bitten by mosquitoes during the holiday weekend. Though the scars from those bites on my face have lightened since then they are still pretty visible. Any recommendations for something that would help fade them faster?
Anyone have experience using MS Teams chat over Southwest in-flight Wi-Fi? Not planning on being “that person” attending a meeting on a plane, just responding to any MS Teams chats that come my way so I don’t have to take PTO.
Deloitte - Do you have Fourth of July week off? About to accept my offer and have PTO planned.

There is a deli that I visit everyday for its salad bar and the guy at the salad bar is so nice, prompt, cheerful and overall great service. But I always pay for it at the counter (not at the salad bar). I do want to give him a huge tip for the holiday season, is this weird if I just give it to him?

Vacation ideas for Thanksgiving? Six of us (ages 25 to 60) and everyone’s vaccinated. Thought about going to the Caribbean but I guess it’s the wet/hurricane season at that time. We’d be traveling from LA and Chicago and it’s only for a week if that helps. Any places you’ve enjoyed during late November?

Went through a bad burnout a few months ago and ended up taking some time off during the Christmas holidays to recover. Now that I am back, I feel disengaged and can’t help but constantly feel like I don’t belong here. Anyone else go through a similar experience?

Moving into a 1bedroom apartment and it’ll be my first time living alone! I’m excited to have my own space, but I’m afraid of feeling cooped up and lonely since I’ll be WFH for the foreseeable future. Any advice, tips, or must-have items to make it more bearable??
On my current project we are working directly for the ceo and coo. I tend to think that whenever you present something to someone at this level, it needs to look good. Even if it’s an early draft things need to be professional. I don’t want to lose their attention or our credibility by showing bad stuff. My teammates on the other hand think it’s ok to show rough work because we are “co-creating” and they are normal people too.... who do you side with

Any advice?: Just finished long term W2 freelance role (since Jan) + I also have a small 1099 side project that‘ll be finishing up in 2ish wks. If we are talking >10k on 1099 (i.e. not enough to justify filing for SCorp) + <160-200k on W2 — is there any real tax advantage of opening LLC vs paying me directly outside of the “protects personal assets if ever sued”, etc? Technically I *could* open LLC quickly b4 invoicing- but dunno if worth $ to do so for such small amount of 1099 coming in?
Likely moving from EY to an M&A tax role at Alvarez & Marsal. I’m wrapping up my third year as a manager at EY in a niche practice. Trying to understand the levels at Alvarez.
