I used to be a vocational counselor for people with mental illness. I encouraged my clients to disclose if there was some sort of accommodation they were looking to gain out of it. For example, a need to adjust work environment or schedule for whatever reason. Just remember that you are still expected to carry all responsibilities (I’m sure you know this but it helps to reassure the employer during disclosure). Sometimes an increased amount of understanding is what you want to gain from them, and that’s okay, too. Don’t be afraid to talk about it if it’s something you need to discuss. ADA protects your rights and the employer can actually get a tax break, too! Best of luck OP!

Take your time, no need to rush anything!

Thank you @A1!! I think the hard part for me is not being exactly sure which accommodations will be best for me. I know it helps when I’m really busy/engaged, but of course that can vary from project to project. I don’t want to approach the issue until I’m sure I know what will help

I accepted a new job, they said PTO was “generous.” I find out it’s 19 days a year of PTO (which includes sick days). I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts? I dont know if lack of PTO is a good reason to back out, is it?
