For those with unlimited PTO policies, what have you done about people who are taking advantage? I know we can decline requests but other than that, how have you addressed that conversation of trending high in time off?

Hey everyone! Wanted some advice - got an offer from a big ad agency for a Planning Manager role. Base salary is $90K (more than satisfactory, I have 2.5-3 years of total agency exp), but their PTO is severely lacking especially compared to my unlimited PTO benefit at my current job - they offered 10 actual PTO days, which are even prorated since it's mid-year. Assuming their PTO allowance is negotiable, any advice for how to handle the email follow-up to the written offer/how much to ask for?

I have family visiting and requested about a month ago for a few days off after Christmas but it wasn’t granted since my other teammate has that time off.

How would you approach this?

I did a quick estimation and there’s a possibility that the egg retrieval day might be in the end of my client project. The difficulty is that you don’t know which day it is until maybe 2or3 days ahead. How do you guys handle this last-minute PTO day? Taking the whole week off doesn’t make sense either since it’s end the of project. Thank you!

How do we feel about creatives/agencies who took/are taking de facto blood money to work on things like Juul, Facebook, other brands who have (debatably) proven to be various levels of dangerous to people/society?

Personally I will blackball anyone who worked on FB, Juul etc from my agency/hiring funnel.

I’ve had many interviews, followed by many rejections. They always ask the same thing: how far along are you in your job search or with interviews with other companies? Do they ask this because they like you and want to make sure they don’t lose you to another offer or because if you’re actively looking they don’t want to get into any battles? Not sure how to even answer this, I’ve been honest in the past but not sure if it’s hurt me.
