If I’m available for a couple of weeks, is it ok to stay home 1 day without taking vacation? Is there a way HR will find out if I don’t come in?

I have no idea. Truth is, you’d probably only be caught if someone went looking for you.

Official policy in a lot of offices is that you are required to sign a physical availability sheet. Technically, if you charge the availability code and aren’t on the sheet. They could find out, but chances are slim. However, you are literally getting paid to watch YouTube videos of whatever else you desire...is it that hard to show up to the office for that?

How do they know you’re not at the office?

Can you not work from home lol

This just seems like very little reward for a risk that could get you fired if they figure out you deliberately scammed the system. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Depends on your office’s culture and scheduling policy!

I’m assuming you’re a first year, my staff has been asking this as summer comes. If there are also other people available for a length of time, work from home with your sound all the way up in case someone messages, and be available to come in to the office within an hour or so As an A3, I stay home whenever I’m available, which is all of 2 weeks a year. Enjoy it while you can.

It's a very chill job (9-5) with good people but limited opportunity to growth. 2) from a consulting company in NYC as a data science consultant, 130k + 10k signing bonus. Which one you choose? why?

I’ve never been a regular vacation-taker, but now I’m resolved to become one. Especially because my company has an unlimited PTO policy. Would 4 weeks of total vacation per year be considered a lot/excessive at your company? I’m thinking of doing two one week vacations, and one two week vacation, and booking them far in advance.
