Considering leaving my firm due to having to work vacations.

I have been super burnt out lately and needed a week away. Do your jobs respect your vacation time? How to do you set boundaries?

I hope everyone at EY will book vacation in November/December to use the accrued hours they EARNED. This PTO thing really is a shame, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the other B4 follow suit. The one thing we all have in common is leadership finding creative ways to screw over employees.

Convince me travel isn’t all bad rn: just talked to a coworker who came back from Greece. Trip itself was fine but the travel was horrible: Lost bags on the way, long lines for everything, missed/delayed/cancelled flights, entire group of 8 (who all went home to different destinations) had 1-2 days added to travel back and slept in the airport. Is this happening to everyone? Is this only effecting certain destinations/layover airports? I’m type A plans for everything so this is making me feel 😬😭
