Absolutely not.

I usually write a pleasant holiday card to each of them, thanking them for the past year and looking forward to the new. I can't find it in my budget /time to shop for grown men.

I usually give my boss a small gift ($10, something funny) but I’m not this year as she gives me nothing but a “enjoy your break.” My old boss used to give me a few thousand dollars in cash with the instruction to do something nice for myself.

Absolutely not. They make 7 figures. They don't need anything. They get a nice card.

Do they give gifts to you? I always feel uncomfortable receiving gifts if I don’t give one as well.

Please don’t feel bad at all

I like to get something small IF I find something I know they’d love. Chances are - if there is something they want, they’ll probably just buy it for themselves.

I give and receive.

Gift down, not up. A card will do. I always tell the people I support what I end up doing with what they give me, which I think makes them happy. I got an amazon gift card last year and I had been contemplating buying something that was a few hundred bucks, and the gift card made it a no brained, so I thanked my exec and told them how much the gift helped me.

No brainer ****

I did but stopped when I realized they didn't appreciate me at all after the amount I did for them all year long.

I’ve worked at places that all have different holiday policies. EA has at minimum a nice 10 day shutdown from Christmas Eve through New Years. It’s great to know that there will be no slack messages or an exploded inbox to come back to while away. I’ve been at other studios that only give you Christmas Eve & Day and New Years Eve & Day and then the rest is up to you to request for PTO and this is obviously the suck.

Wonder what it’s like for you?

I don’t know how I’m just realizing this now, but my job gives me anxiety. Over the past 5-6 years I turned into an anxious person with GERD and IBS. I thought that’s just who I am, but it seems like every time I take vacation I’m back to feeling ‘normal,’ until I start thinking about work. Any advice?

I have family visiting and requested about a month ago for a few days off after Christmas but it wasn’t granted since my other teammate has that time off. The main client we bill to has the entire season off so I’m not sure why I wasn’t given off. I indirectly let my manager know and was advised to hash it out with my team. How would you approach this?

Do you and members of your team work OT? If so, do you flex the time to take PTO? Currently, I have flexed full days of my OT to take off. I’m not sure if you can do so at Google but seems helpful since the PTO seems low (20 days, right)?

What are some subtle red flags to pass on working for a company/team?

One example was a panel of interviewers at a top tech company within FAANG (is it MAANG now?) constantly rubbing their temples in a stressful manner when talking about their day to day… Another was an interviewer telling me that the leader disregards other’s calendars, senior or not, because they should trust that whatever meeting she has is important… so thoughts?
