0. If you leave PTO on the table you're honestly too fucking stupid to be successful in this industry, toodles.

I've lost 0 since I've joined. Sometimes it's just the team. If you're stuck with the same team, I suggest communicating it well ahead of time and make sure you max out to not lose any hours. Otherwise, look for another team.

0. I would not let that happen if at all preventable.

If they don't let you take PTO, I would escalate that to a PPD or Talent.

How do you survive being on a project that is failing? Can’t leave, was just brought on to lead the team. Am doing all damage control possible in terms of delivery but wondering if others who have been on struggling projects have recommendations of how to maintain reputation and mental health?

I have stepped into December with total apathy towards work. Just came back from vacation so I don’t feel like I need to rest. Just no desire at all to do anything and I can’t find the motivation. I am also in the process of looking for other job opportunities but nothing seems to excite me. Has anyone ever felt the same way? Maybe it’s just a period that will pass on its own?
Any advice will be appreciated🙏

First day in industry and go to look at my time sheet....

What? There’s only one code I need to put my time to if I’m working? I can submit it weekly? And I don’t need to give at least 2 weeks advance for PTO when I’m requesting it? Oh me oh my why did I not make this move sooner!

Would you rather work at Apple, with an in office policy of 3 days no fully remote option. Or work for a Consulting company that offers 100% remote and unlimited PTO as long as it doesn’t interfere with projects and such. I would really love to have Apple on my resume as I am now in an Ivy League school. But as a single parent with 3 kids I really find it hard to work for a company that is not flexible. I enjoy being in the office as needed but don’t know how I feel about it being required.
