Does it make sense to ask Amazon if I can start start work in two months ? I want to use all my vacation (4.5 weeks) and 1 month sabbatical before leaving my current employer.

Ask if it's possible to push your start date to your desired date. Should be perfectly fine.

i asked and they were not too happy. just your fyi

I guess it will depend on the role and how urgent is for them to hire. Asking would not hurt

Word of warning, check your employee handbook about unused PTO. Apparently in New York State, even with labor laws protecting unpaid PTO, if it’s written in any employee handbook or material that unused PTO is waived when you quit, that‘s all the employer has to do to get out of paying you.

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?

My husband and I have been wanting to start “trying” for a baby for a while now. However, I’m unhappy in my current role and would like to make a jump somewhere else. I have a few early interviews lined up but it’s still early days and no telling where they’ll go. Is it silly to put off trying until I find a new job? On the contrary, is it problematic if I accept a new role down the line while a few months pregnant? Either route feels like a compromise. Appreciate any input from mamas out there.

Every year around now I start looking to leave but never do because industry seems boring. Any advice? 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️
