Need Advice: I’m taking a 1 week vacation during the next month ans I just got invited to an all day training for 3 days starting the day after I return.
Am I crazy for asking my manager to go to the non mandatory training and leaving my SC to defend for themselves for almost 2 weeks?
Considering an exit opportunity to industry, however the PTO time available with public accounting is so much better than the two weeks granted with my potential industry role. Have others been able to successfully negotiate additional PTO right from the start upon changing to a new industry position?
I completed my final Google PM interviews 5 weeks ago, and followed up the recruiter at the end of week 4 (no response yet).
Any suggestions on hearing any feedback or an offer? I’m hoping no news is good news at this point?? 😂
I know the thanksgiving holiday may have delayed, but seems to be taking a while?
So I got a job offer with minimal PTO and the hiring manager said it’s company policy they can’t do more. But then said he’s ok with me not putting it in the system so I can take more days. These seems like 🚩 but am I overthinking it?
How awkward would it be to give notice on Jan 4 (the first Mon after holiday break) and say my last day is Fri, Jan 15? I would say Jan 18, but that's MLK day (cont)
Im a second yr at a firm with a "flexible vacation policy" how many days would be acceptable to take off? I have never taken a day off and im on track to bill over 2200 hours (1900 requirement).
EY folks how does the unlimited PTO work? What would be considered “too much” and does it go against your utilization?
Hi all: Received a Technical Recruiter offer from a retained search firm located in the US. Is this a good offer? I renegotiated once and this is the offer I received today.
Monthly Commission: 10% of client fee once placed ($25k avg client fee)
Retainer fee: 10% of 5% client fee paid up front
First 6mths: No commission on first $15k but paid 10% commission on difference. Ex: If the fee is $25k, will be paid 10% commission on only $10k ($25k - 15k = $10k)
Im so confused by maternity leave policies and Reed can’t answer any of my questions. So, I can take 4 weeks before delivery and 6 weeks after delivery through California disability leave in addition to 12 weeks parental leave. If I deliver early, does it mean I have more time off after delivery? How about I deliver late? Another question, my due date falls on Christmas time, can I stop my disability leave and use holiday time and continue with the disability leave?

When did it become acceptable to go shoeless during meetings? Three in the same meeting...one was actually barefoot and curled up in a chair as if on a beach vacation. 😳
Considering holiday break and not burning any bridges: If starting a new job in the beginning of January, what would be the best approach to submitting notice and not miss out on a paycheck?
Does everyone have a vacation home EXCEPT me? Chime in — good investment/bad? How often used? Kids? Pets?
If I gave a recruiter a salary figure (not a range), and that’s the number ultimately offered, can/should I still try to ask for more?
Where else could I negotiate other than PTO?
I know y’all are on vacation this week, but is anyone from PwC Workforce Transformation willing to chat re a potential referral? Thanks! PwC
I am on vacation but I can't relax.
Just dreamed that my least favorite GCD gave me a lap dance, to which I conceded.
How’s your holiday break?
Where would you go and what would you do if you could take a one week vacation on your own this summer ?

I recently was let go (in lieu of accepting my two weeks) and I should have received my March expense check by the end of April per the employment agreement (submitted the report April 1, let go before mid April). I have emailed HR but haven't heard anything. I've got a feeling someone at the top is putting a hold on it.
