Some people are under the delusion that they are indispensable to the company. Thing is.. when you drop dead at your desk, the work will only be held up for as long as it takes to coroner to remove your body from the seat so that someone else can get in there and finish your work for you. Stop working while you are on vacation. Unplug

I've never worked on vacation and the 60% that aren't doing it are not getting fired. Set the expectation upfront that you are not available and stick to it.

Yes and then get promptly fired. You think they want to work on vacation?

I just don't respond. Easy as that. Ignore their emails and calls. When you get back, ask everyone who bugged you if they still need help - $100 they solved it without you. If someone complains, just ask them what their expectations are next time you are on vacation. Be firm about it, it's your vacation that you earned. Let them explain in detail their expectations so they have to be specific about their jerkness.

I'm a millenial and my team is explicit about not working during vacation. Maybe its just the culture my partner sets, but in my office unless a manager or senior manager and something is blowing up which truly requires your input, its pretty rare for people to do so. And no one has gotten in trouble for not doing so. If you're a yes man and let yourself be steamrolled then sure, maybe. Stick up for yourself - we work to live, not live to work you nerds.

KPMG fires you for working on vacation?

Not a millennial and not working every day of vacation ... that's just poor management on their part if you can't at least get out of work on vacation (I'm guessing those people work the entire weekend too??)

Where are you getting your statistics?

Thankfully I took a screenshot as soon as I got it.
