Should an agency have a $600,000 holiday party budget and subsequently conduct layoffs before said holiday? #HotSportsOpinion
Dumb question but if I’m taking PTO Friday-Monday, is my end time at 12AM on that Monday or Tuesday on outlook?
Feeling really demotivated lately... probably burnt out. I can't really use up vacation days in case family wants to go on a big trip next summer, so have to save up PTO (cont).
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.
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?
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.
What would you do if you had 2 weeks of bench time or vacation right now? Go to India to meet family or roam around US by yourself
What's the average cost you've spent on a vacation between the travel and stay over the past few years (cost per person) International or domestic?
Can someone from Deloitte help me to know exactly how many hours I must work in a year to achieve exactly 95 percent utilization? I'm trying to understand the difference between holidays vs. PTO hours
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.
What’s your sweet spot for number/days of vacation per year while also striving toward FIRE?
on PTO today. ate a gummy after lunch. remembered right after it kicked in that i had a client presentation in 15 minutes. with the cmo 🙃
Had an offer for 30% more , a promotion to manager, extra week of vacation to switch firms. I love where I am at with my clients and there is a lot of potential there. Should I stay the course?
Anyone have perspective on how MBB (specifically Bain) benefits are better than big 4? I heard Bain contributes 4.5% of salary to your 401k regardless of any employee contributions, which is great. Any other big perks that make their benefits package superior to others (eg. Big 4)?
Anyone have any suggestions for accounting, finance, or data analysis books or online material to prepare for an MBA? I’m accepted to LBS but my background is in entrepreneurship so I know a lot of random stuff but I want to be prepared for the required core courses.
Heard some people got H1B lottery results already. Hope we all get selected! Best of luck folks 🤠
Decoded needs a couple of mid/senior designers for an LTF project starting next week. Send links to email@example.com and I’ll pass them along. Thanks!
It’s 2020, are men still expected to pay on the first date or is it acceptable to split 50-50? Not trying to start a whole debate on modern gender dynamics, I just need practical advice.
Joined a Big 4 out of college. Been two full years with A-123 IT internal audit with experience in tool dev./sharepoint/vba. Will have my CISA w/in a year. What are my exit choices besides audit?
Guys - Any good insurance suggestion for parents that covers both Canada and US and good number of in-network doctors. Father might need to get checked up here as he got sick last time he was here
can I get into stern MBA with admin assistant experience at a NYU school? I went to NYU for undergrad with Econ major.
Has anyone flown westjet? Trying to go to canada and thats the only option for return flights that doesn’t cost $1000+ for non-stop air canada/united. P.S. not flexing as I’m local 😞
Do I get the same MQD and miles if I fly a Jetblue ticketed flight (Mint class) using my AA number vs flying a AA ticketed flight operated by Jetblue? For some reasons I see 2 seats on Jetblue but it says sold out on AA site.
😡 They fired my counselee and didn't tell me. Been working on his year-end prep for no reason 😡
This week we dive into the book of our awesome Summer Intern, Summer Campbell. Check it out. She’s currently looking for a designer/art director J.O.B. https://youtu.be/tQcbQdn64BA
Is it rude/will it rub folks the wrong way if you tell an HR rep what salary you want to move to a new firm, you interview, it goes well, they make a formal offer near your ask, but then you ask...
My brother has an internship in the LA/Torrance area this summer. Any advice on short term rentals in the area? Where should he look besides Craigslist and Airbnb? Thanks in advance for your help!
Pregnant, just got a new job offer. I need to drop the pregnancy bomb now (I’m 24 weeks along). Really looking for any advice on how to say this in negotiations. I really want to see if I can negotiate our maternity leave. Also want to break the news in a way where they don’t feel deceived.
I have an exit offer to a major PharmaCo, really excited about the offer and company in another state. The problem is that the start date is right when my wife is due with our first child. Normally nbd, but we just found out that my wife has developed a heart condition because of the pregnancy. OBGYN and Cardiologist both have said that it would be ultra high risk for to move before the baby comes and will be safe 1-2month after. Tips moving the start date without getting the offer pulled?
Does the workload lesson over time, or do you just get used to the longer hours? Hmmmm...
