Bruh… it’s part of the game. Worked through 90% of my PTO. You don’t get paid $400-500k to have fund

Just worked every day of my week long pto this past week. Live deals don't care if you had vacation time booked

If you are on an active deal, you would likely need to cancel PTO. Part of it is also (trying) to manage not to get assigned when you are near PTO.

I would not work though PTO unless an active deal or an emergency. I’ll typically answer a few phone calls or will check email if asked during a long vacation (week +.) If this a random day off for the family, I won’t respond.

Damn thanks all for the perspectives. 3 of my friends took Friday off for me because I’m coming back in town so didn’t want to be an AH but yeah I’m on 3 active deals

All trying to close before year end but one likely to be pushed to Jan

At what age were your kids able to sleep alone in an unfamiliar place (e.g., room in vacation home)? Last time we traveled with our two and three year olds we found my husband needed to share the room with them and then they were happy and slept… but it meant he had to go to bed at like 8/830 pm which kind of sucks. They are now 4 and 2.5… should they be able to go to sleep in the room together without him there? Are they old enough to understand and cooperate?

ECG 🐠, how's work life balance for you?

The culture around PTO on my 6-7 person team is one where: 1) no one (besides me) takes more than 1-2 days off a year, 2) people frequently brag about how little time off they take…”I only took one day off for my child being born”, 3) people make comments that I’m “always on vacation” (in the last 2.5 years working at my company, I’ve taken cumulatively ~4 weeks off). Team workflow is deal-based so it’s difficult to plan in advance for taking time off as deals often come up unexpectedly. Cont…
