Has anyone tried working from home in Porto Rico, Hawaï or another US state that rhymes with vacation ? How was your experience ?
Im an Australian travelling to Hawaii for 7 days for holiday. What's your best recommendations on things to do or see?! Staying in Waikiki. Thanks!
The culture around PTO on my 6-7 person team is one where: 1) no one (besides me) takes more than 1-2 days off a year, 2) people frequently brag about how little time off they take…”I only took one day off for my child being born”, 3) people make comments that I’m “always on vacation” (in the last 2.5 years working at my company, I’ve taken cumulatively ~4 weeks off). Team workflow is deal-based so it’s difficult to plan in advance for taking time off as deals often come up unexpectedly. Cont…
I’m taking PTO on Monday to sleep in and get some work done without meetings. I told myself I’d start today (Sunday) to get some of it out of the way and since I’ve woken up this AM, I’ve cooked myself food and binge watched movies for 7 hours. I just feel like doing nothing
Necessary to bring laptop while on vacation? It will be at a developing country and we'll be moving around cities a lot, so I'm not comfortable carrying it around. What do you guys usually do?
Do you all check/reply your emails even when you take some time off/are off sick? I feel like I live in constant FOMO. Like something super important/urgent is going to happen even if I don’t have any trials or Ct deadlines coming up. If you do, how do you switch off?
For the past month our house has been in a constant state of quarantine (kids under five) and now stomach flu has hit. My hours suck and I’m exhausted. I truly enjoy my job but life keeps getting in the way! I’ll be lucky if I hit 120 hours this month…can I take a vacation?
Has anyone taken an unplanned vacation before? Asking for weeks off when just two days before you want it.
Solidarity idea: I want to donate a PTO day to black coworkers so they can protest, grieve, or practice self-care.
Planning on taking PTO for 2 weeks over the December holidays. Any designation suggestions?
One of my favorite things to do on vacation is to check out local gyms and fitness spots. In Arizona and swam laps at the local rec center.
Just got a lateral offer, and know that conflicts/background check will take a little bit of time, and i’m hoping to take a week or two off in between jobs. My question is: would you take a vacation now or in the next few weeks before giving notice? Already losing motivation haha
Curious what people’s firm’s vacation policy is? Do you have to jump through a lot of hoops to get it approved or is it more of a “use your judgment” approach?
I quit my job and enjoying my first week of vacation between jobs. Today I measured my blood pressure, first time under 130/80 in years. LOL
If you tell your employer that you need time off for your mental health is that respected?
Have a week of PTO to move cross country then start new engagement. New engagement manager hears this and says "Great, you'll have plenty of time to help next week when you're not packing." Continued
We offered our nanny the option to stay at home due to the cold weather. She decided to but we never clarified if we were paying her or using a PTO day. Normally we guarantee 40hr pay. Do we pay 4 day

Currently in Healthcare Analytics at Deloitte GPS Advisory. I enjoy it but want to explore other firms. What are other firms that would be strong to jump to? Debating mostly between Accenture and EY.
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
I have an offer from two companies and they are both very compelling. What should I look for when making my final decision on which company to join? Thanks in advance!

What would you do if you were me? Late 30s. Burned out. 1.4M invested in index funds (75% in in post tax accounts). 4k/month fixed housing expense. Untilites/insurance/subscriptions at 1k/month. After that it's food, clothing, and one-off expenses. Dual income family of 4. Monthly burn rate gets up to 9k when we're not paying attention so I'm not traditional FIRE yet. Coasting options? Sabbatical? A few more years in the salt mines? Rental properties or other time suck investments?
