Utilization targets for me.

As I was thinking today that I only have 3 weeks of work left this year, I realized I don’t really know how much vacation I officially have each year. Clearly I don’t take that much but really looking forward to 2 weeks off over the holidays.

Not sure how to quantify it given the weeks off in July and December. If you include those, I'll be taking a total of 6 weeks and 3 days.

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…

Someone correct me if I’m wrong… for PDM Analysts/Senior Analysts with 93% utilization target, working 40 hours a week, factoring in holidays/collective disconnect days… there’s 1 day of PTO available across the entire performance year in order to meet utilization by Jan 8? Is that even legal? Lol

How many days of PTO do you take? I’m a second year partner and have struggled to step away for more than a couple of days at a time. I take around 15 days total for the year. This is a mentality carried over from being a senior manager and working constantly to sell and build a ledger to make partner. My team has doubled in size and ledger continues to grow. I fear burnout with pressure to keep pace of growth no additional incentive to work this hard because of equal sharing comp model.
