Hey managers and above - do you get to take all of your vacation time? Does vacation still kill utilization? And do you get to be actually off on your days off, or is it just working from some place nicer?

I what do yoga mean does vacation kill utilization? I have over 300 hours right now and am over my util target currently. I've taken some PTO this year but have had massive proposals each time that prevented me from taking a significant amount of legit disconnected time. I hate wasn't online and dealing with day to day client stuff or client /
Team meetings. It's mostly independent work, or proposal stuff when I have to work during previously planned time off.

There are definitely Ms and SMs who take all their PTO and are totally disconnected tho, and props to them! If you want to do that, it's definitely possible and within your ability.

I can also spell. I do not do yoga. I wish I did.

funny

I definitely take all my vacation time. I’m able to totally disconnect certain times of the year. If I have to respond to something, it is usually to move it forward (so someone else can pick up the ball when I’m out).

That's encouraging. I've worked through a vacation twice and really don't want to do it again haha

All depends on your client, project team ….

I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.
