How does the holiday weekend impact your quota? Still the same? It's still the same for me, which I feel is unfair.

It likely depends on the sales cycle. If the sales cycle is short ( <= 1 month), the impact is understandable. If it’s a quarter or beyond a sales rep could plan for that in advance. Irrespective a sales organization should be able to plan for such a dip in advance. Not to mention most industries see a dip at the beginning of summer, something which is usually planned for in advance.

You know the 4th is coming, just like Christmas will fall on the same day every year. Make a plan that accounts for this.

I interviewed for a role for another team within my organization and went on PTO for 2 days. When I came back my director told me I didn’t get the role but there were better plans for me in the near future. I found out from HR after that I did get the role but the organization decided to pause the offer waiting for another one in the near future. How would you react if your Director and company make a career choice for you without consulting with you?

Maybe pension is worth $2.5M so I think that means I should have $5.7 total you want death to have no financial impact. Also was going to do $1M of that in perm w/ LTC rider. Sound right?
