Told him I can't promise anything during PTO especially related to PRD. Then asked if I'm free to help out Sunday afternoon. I said I have a family engagement. Manager said, "ok, thanks, bye," and immediately hangs up.

Then emails at 3am this morning to jump on an 8am call related to PRD I didn't even sign up for, ask for, or have a say interest in. Haven't started the project yet, and I'm already terrified of what is coming next.

Yeah he's dumb AF. Wouldn't worry about him. Hold your ground.

What a manager! He is bully, don't budge!

Good for you OP! Hope that engagement doesn't last long. He sounds like the worst!! I've never had someone like that.

He doesn't understand a lot of things obviously. What a jackass manager

Good job holding your ground! Set expectations early. Leadership really needs to hear more about situations like this

Might be joining Deloitte soon. How does their paid time off work? Do you get a certain amount right when you start? Or do you have to wait for some period of time before you can accrue PTO?

Got to ask, do any of you who travel, are you required to stay on site on a friday if the client is off on monday due to a holiday?

You know you travel too much when: you get excited about all the space you have in the bag that you're checking for a PTO trip.
