Two weeks is pretty low for an agency, even entry level. If you need the time now, I’d ask about the ability to borrow from next year or take unpaid leave. Bring up your ask of more leave at your next review. If that doesn’t work, ask about opportunities to work from home which would at least give you some flexibility to travel on Mondays/Fridays, even if you’re still working.

Awesome. Will definitely bring it up then! My boss does allow us to WFH but prefers everyone in office at all times... but let’s hope for the best. Thanks!!

Yeah that’s low I got three weeks after one year

Yeah 3 weeks feels nicer, let’s see what I can do!

It’s 2 weeks and becomes 3 after 5 years. With start up culture and companies competing to offer more time off, I definitely hoped for more. Given that I’m so new, would anyone suggest me talking to someone whether it’s my boss or HR about buying time off or something? They recently started summer fridays so they are striving to make changes but it’s becoming a bit stressful because I have like 5 different Indian weddings (which means 3-5 days of events). I know this sounds a bit bratty but I was genuinely curious if anyone had any advice or guidance or if I should just keep my mouth shut and look for a new job when I feel it a lot more?

Oh and side note: the parent company who owns us gives their employees the option to buy time but from what I know, my company doesn’t have that option.

Not sure if this has been shared on here, but looks like Bonvoy is updating point redemptions to align with cash value of rooms vs seasonal peaks / hotel categories. So for example a Category 8 hotel in peak season is 100k points/night, regardless of nightly rate (let’s say it’s $2,000/night). I’m speculating you’ll see that jump to something like a 1:100 exchange so that the same hotel room in 2022 will be 200k points / night.

I hope you all have a blessed and peaceful holiday break. I pray you all receive what you desire and 2020 be the year of countless blessings for all of you. -Z
