I can’t stand my client. I can’t stand my project. I can’t stand this job. My teammates are starting to get annoying. I need a break but I can’t afford to take a LOA and I have too much work to do to take a vacation. Yay me! Hope everyone else is having a great day :)

Yikes. Please take a day off right away. Say you feel sick and need a day off. We’re not saving lives here, they’ll be fine without you on this random Tuesday.

+1 to this = mental health day is so much more important if you feel this way. Go take a walk/get a coffee/sleep in, give yourself a real sick day to just BE and don't put the pressure on yourself to get anything done.

Not taking pto is like choosing not to invoice a client. It’s part of your comp and more importantly you need it to maintain your health. Send an outlook invite today blocking a week (or two)

You can definitely take LOA, we always think work NEEDS to be done but in the end.. it doesn’t really matter.

If you need more time, tell your lead. You want out anyway, what's the worst that can happen? A bad performance review or getting rolled off which won't matter since you are interviewing anyway? We put so much pressure on ourselves in these jobs, but just miss a deadline if you have to for the sake of your mental health. I've been there too and wished I had done this when I was billing 90 hours a week.

I told myself even if I get a better offer I would consider staying but I am definitely leaving if I get a better offer. My project is not enjoyable anymore and it’s definitely not what I want to do in my career. It’s just difficult for me to not care because I’m so used to putting out quality work and always meeting deadlines and requests

How long until the end of the engagement? I have been you. Lost vacation. Was miserable every day. Still did my work though to keep client happy. Project then ended and now I am in a better place. If you have a short time until it ends maybe stick it out. Either way, take a few mental health days. Call out sick a few days. And dont check email during your time away!

On one hand the client isn’t asking questions about the attribution windows but it’s hurting overall performance for the client. What to do?

Ending this belief in our unerring exceptionalism might actually be the thing that saves us. There’s a lot we can learn from the success of other countries (be in healthcare, education, infrastructure investment), but for a long time we turned a blind eye to it because “we are the best”. Countries like Germany, which don’t endlessly praise their own history, have been liberated from the constraints of the past and have been able to make far healthier societies.
