Everyone on my team feels guilty about taking vacation days, and we are often put in situations where we stop accruing because of the workload.

Nope! At EY teammembers who have been to the places that I'm planning to visit give me pointers, team wishes me luck and have fun notes on email, usually they would keep copying me on emails for ongoing tasks while I'm away to keep me in loop but no expectation for a same day response, when i get back I'm asked about my trip and how it went. I'm sure it's the same everywhere because generally all people have similar values. Just be sensitive to when you take vacation so as to not put your team in a tight spot, that's just common decency.

Jesus ppl take your vacation! You work hard and should not feel guilty as long as you communicate your plans a your team if there is a deadline around that time. I go negative every year 😂😂
