I need to go into the office next week. But I still have beads in my hair from vacation. Okay if I leave them in or should I take them out? It’s also a new job so first time meeting them.
Anyone else feel guilty about taking PTO? I have months of time I need to take but it seems frowned upon to take any time off. How did I get so caught up in a toxic work environment?
I have spent almost all vacation time at home, trying to go out in the few days left.....what are your top sites to visit within Manhattan???
Rallied hard this year, but feeling really burned out. I have a few weeks of vacation left and I really need a reset before another year of chasing my number. If you had 3 weeks of vacation left would you - take every Monday and Friday off from Nov 1 until Dec 15 or take a week at a time separately? Or something else? The last two weeks of the year will be really quiet anyway, so no need to use PTO.
Punta Cana or Tulum for a one-week vacation? I will be traveling with a 6-year old and a 1-year old.
AITA? I live abroad. Invited a friend to come over for free, for vacation while I’m working so that they can explore the city. Result is they’re not independent and struggle exploring alone. they just spend all day playing video games or watching tv next to me when I’m working (my desk is in the living room). They knew upfront I was going to be working. This is super annoying. Can’t go into the office (not at EY anymore).
Ithink I’ll never invite friends to stay with me when I’m working lol
How many vacation days have you been able to negotiate?
Are you in a market that pays you for unused days?
Do your days roll over to next year?
If unlimited, how many do you actually take?

Hi ladies! I just got an offer and want the insight I don’t get from my non-mom friends. My background is in investigations but I’m a consultant and not really hugely passionate about it. I got an offer from Deloitte to do background investigations but it would be a pay cut. Not huge…and OT would make up some of the difference. The work/life balance would drastically improve and the guaranteed PTO/holidays would be a huge improvement over having to consider utilization. Help me weigh my options!
Company closed our Office location after 16 years. HR told me that “they don’t pay out” our remaining PTO (I have 103 hours). Is there anything legally that I can do to get my EARNED Hours paid out to me???
I am (a woman) all about supporting other women in the workplace but sometimes it's bloody annoying. My MD asked me to work on my PTO (which I was fine with), and I said let's get on the call early morning so we can finish early. She refused cause she had to host Xmas party for kids while not on PTO. So now I have to accommodate her, but she's not accommodating others. And I can't say anything cause it's her kids and our firm is supposed to support women with family and all. Aaargh
Never have I been able to charge more than 40 hrs on any project I have done (though I was expected to work more). Every day of bench and pto hurts my utilization 😭
How my holiday “break” went : RFI issued on December 22. Submission on the 26. Pitch on January 3. 😐
I had an interview with aws for a marketing role. Is it true that they offer 10 days PTO for your first year?? How is this possible?
I feel like the expectation at my firm is to go go go at 100% all day, every day. But i go through periods where i’m extremely burned out. And i feel like I’m constantly running behind a bus, and trying to catch it, but it never stops.
Everyone says mental health is “so important”, but why don’t they realize the constant work with hardly any downtime is contributing to this? I feel like a vacation cannot cure the burnout and i’m only a junior. Idk if i can do this for 50 years.
I hit rock bottom (I mean it) and in 6 weeks I managed a vacation, landed a new job, found a great guy, and landed a bomb apartment. Everything can change at the drop of a hat - keep your chin up.
I received an offer from Deloitte as a Consultant - the offer letter didn’t specify amount of PTO. Should I clarify this with the recruiter or is it standard at every level?
