Does anyone else hate these audit milestones as much as I do? All the partners are on vacation and didn't review anything. So much stress for August.

Or they give you deadlines so that they have time to review but don't review until the day before. Why did I bust my ass all month?

That's exactly what happened. Everything has been done for months and I'm just praying no one has review notes so I don't need to ask the client for additional information.

Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out. It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
