Boss of mine way back in the day did. She negotiated for extra PTO in lieu of a raise when she got a promotion.

Thanks MD1. Just to clarify, I’m expecting an offer shortly and company typically offers new employees 3 weeks to start.

I have but it was from 2 to 3 weeks. Ultimately declined the offer. IMO it can't hurt to try.

Nice, what was your script?

Did everyone take a day or two off to celebrate the holiday? Does anyone feel pressure to work on the holidays? It seems like major meetings get schedules with no thought about the high holidays

Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.

There is a paralegal (not mine) in my firm that is making everyone miserable. She cries at her desk, complains about being overworked and is rude to the other paralegals, staff, and a couple of the attorneys. She is so disrespectful to me that I recently asked to work from home for a month (I am dealing with some other mental health issues and she is too much). My request was granted, and last Friday I was in the office to make sure several motions were filed properly. Continued in comment:
