I put my 2 weeks in and I literally have no billable work right now. Are they watching my billables? Can I just chalk this up as part of my "unlimited" vacation time? I'm available if needed, but also working remote, so could get away with doing bare minimum, I think.

You think they’re going to call you and tell you to bring your billables up? Enjoy it. Don’t use vacation time. Transition your matters and take a nap.

All I did in the last couple weeks of my notice period was catch up on CLEs and write very detailed transition memos.

Why would you or they care if you already quit? I would do as little as possible during the notice period.

I’m 17 weeks pregnant and started a new job this summer- leading a very large team who’ve been without a leader for months. My boss is well aware but the team doesn’t know. I’m showing now and after a few weeks of holiday I’m gonna be showing enough to have to say something. (For context: Heavy male team, 6 months mat leave policy) I don’t want their reaction to be negative but it does suck to lose two leaders -even if only temp- in one year. Looking for advice on how to word my announcement?
