Take PTO during project or roll off then PTO?

Planning to accept another job soon but have a scheduled 1 week vacation starting next week. When should I put in 2 weeks notice that I’m leaving? Is it a risk that they withdraw approval of my long-approved PTO? New job wants me to start ASAP so I’d feel bad delaying start dat over a month if the solution is to wait until after vacation to give 2weeks notice

About to wrap up a week+ vacation and instead of feeling well-rested and ready to work again, the thought of going back gives me so much dread. I’m not sure if I’m burnt out or depressed or just over where I work. Does anyone else feel like this? If I wasn’t saving for a down payment, I think I would want to take a leave of absence.

I am having the hardest time in my life. Depression and anxiety have become unmanageable from the pressure to bill with only a ten vacation day policy. I don’t sleep anymore. I cry every single day.

My body physically aches from the lack of sleep and pure state of stress I’m constantly in. Any encouragement? Something?

How do you manage sleep when traveling with a toddler? My daughter just turned two and she had been sleep trained and is an excellent sleeper BUT only sleeps in her own crib. I rock her until she falls asleep and put her in her crib. But this has to be in her room. If I rock her in my bedroom, she won't fall asleep. I want to take a vacation and I'm really afraid that she won't fall asleep in the hotel and will cry a lot. She sort of understands when we talk to her so I can communicate...

Do any of you at EY ever have issues actually taking your vacation? Given we work with people across regions on multiple projects at once, who do you ask for approval for longer vacations?

Does the amount of "Breakthrough Cases" rising among those fully vaccinated make anyone... wonder? Now there's a "Delta+" variant?
