If I’m on PTO (out of the country) and my manager requires me to do some work, can I bill my internet expense to the project?

Uhhhh.... tell them you’re out of pocket with limited access to the internet. Why did you even tell them you have your work laptop? (Mistake#1)
If they require you to work, yes you make them pay the bill or you don’t work...

Yeah why would you take your laptop. Why would check your email, text voicemail from manager. If you did check it why would you reply. So many rookie mistake, I can't handle this many screw ups.

Ok ok I didn’t leave yet, they don’t know if I’ll have my laptops (but my manager sucks and would assume). So let’s start over, I’m in PTO I should just ghost?

Don’t ghost. Put the hour it takes. Location is home address. Bill internet. And kudos for being a team player.

Like A3 I always take my laptop & rarely use it. It's about being part of team.

like

Isn’t it technically illegal to work outside of a country that you don’t possess a work visa for?

D1- It’s not about being always connected, I rarely open my laptop on vacation. But if I’m on a team and they need something that takes me 5 min to send over instead of having them rebuild it/track it down, I’m gonna take time to do it. Maybe not asap but I’m not trying to leave anyone out to dey

Ey1- over 400k you mean. Lol

OP I'd ghost if they're inconsiderate generally and it's not urgent. Otherwise, I'd help out (hopefully via mobile and not on my laptop)

Actually. If they just wanted me to send something- cool. If they wanted me to *do* something? Ehhhhn.

But what is you take a request and it turns into something bigger and now you'll look a douche for saying you'll do it and then can't. So just unplug and fuck the world. Plus if you're the only one with a copy of a file then that's just horrible planning on your and you're team's part.

Ghost em

A recruiter for a company that I was excited to work for has ghosted on me (it’s been a week since they have given me updates). I’ve been told that things are delayed bc several key folks are on vacation atm.

How should I approach this situation? Several other companies I’m interviewing with is reaching final rounds, but tbh I’m not as interested in those roles. Plus I’m getting antsy being unemployed for several weeks since I was laid off.

I joined my new company six months ago (non product). I’m really conflicted. There’s a lot of interesting projects and I have a good team and am getting paid very well. However, an opportunity to pivot into a new role (product) just came up. That company and I have been talking casually for the past few months and they leveled up and made an offer that is pretty solid for a first timer in that role (and very little paycut). What should I do? I like what I have but also feel I don’t wanna miss it
