How is PTO truly unlimited if leaders are notified when people take too much (whatever that means) PTO and will tell employees to not take more PTO? Isn’t that just limited PTO except instead of it being documented it’s just up to whether your leadership thinks you’ve been taking too much PTO and/or if they like you?

I’m so unhappy at my company and I have been for awhile. In January when we won a new client I was promised I’d be owning the work but now I work “under” a Strategy Director who has been unprofessional, awful, and generally inept. I’m doing all the work to clean up the messes she’s making, but no one sees her mess and she gets the credit for my success. I’ve brought it up to leadership and they just say “we’re aware and we’re doing what we can” but it’s been months and no action has been taken.

A friend’s having a holiday party at her apt, and I’m feeling torn about going with the increase in omicron cases. 18 people going now (originally smaller).

Not concerned as much about getting sick myself as transmitting to others (may be seeing elderly parents next week). Just curious how others have been approaching these situations. (Be nice please)

So I just accidentally found out that the senior associate in our office makes almost 3x the amount I do per month. For background, we have 4 attorneys, the senior associate has about 9 years more experience than I do (I have 6). This person should be paid more than me, I have no problem with that. Is it normal for there to be that big of a difference in pay? I just want to know if I’m getting screwed.

Hoping there’s some miracle solve I haven’t thought of🤞 🤞. I’m stuck in the permalance gig from hell bc I was stupid and signed up for their insurance so now if I leave I don’t have insurance again until I can get my own in open enrollment in the fall. And of course I suddenly have a ton of medical issues so definitely need insurance. Any ideas of how to escape this?! Other than jump to another company with insurance.
