Going back to work after vacation is so hard.
👀 Still looking for an apartment swap in NYC. I have a clean apartment in Mexico City. The dates are October 27th to November 3rd, Day of the Dead holiday weekend. With LOTS happening. Located in the best area of Mexico City with a ton of restaurants, cafes, and parks. High speed internet with standing desk, large TV, external monitor, and more. Message me your email or phone number and we can text to exchange pictures and more information.
Who has ever had work put pressure on them to cancel a pre-planned holiday that had been approved with plenty of notice? Thank you.
Taking a half day of PTO this Friday. Cheers to everyone who can get out of the office early today after a crazy week of grinding. To those who can’t, may the PPT winds always be at your back.
Wait a minute... do you accrue PTO in your last two weeks after providing two weeks notice?
Gave 2 wk notice, last day 7/20. Lead 2 analysts - 1 will be on pto today until 7/20 (so today is last day w him) other will be here. How to communicate departure? (Contd...)
You guys getting your legal assistant anything for Valentine’s Day? I was thinking something small. She’s single and I know most women (myself too) appreciate a little something on this Hallmark holiday.
Can someone do something big so we have a holiday sometime between tomorrow and May? I have my faith in y’all.
When's the best time to take PTO ... when you're staffed on a long project or on the bench
Is your Christmas decor still up? I got rid of the holiday decor in my classroom to usher in a fresh start, but still clinging to the holiday joy at home!
Anyone have mandatory PTO during the holidays? Our leadership is making us use PTO days if we don't have billable work between Xmas & NYE. I don't even celebrate Xmas, kind of annoyed
I’ll be giving my notice around when I have off for a long weekend & when I start my new job I have a vacation planned for a few days. Should I change my plans or keep my personal commitments?
Curious what people’s firm’s vacation policy is? Do you have to jump through a lot of hoops to get it approved or is it more of a “use your judgment” approach?
My SO’s family invited me on a European vacation and I’m going. However, I am terrified of telling my mother. My parents aren’t the most financially stable. My mom has a lot of regret about how her life turned out and often exhibits a lot of toxic jealousy toward people with more money than them. She especially is jealous of how others get to travel. I’m worried that telling her will make her feel shitty, uncomfortable, and like she can’t keep up with her potential future in-laws … (1/2)
How much time off is everyone taking between now and the new year? Me: 2 weeks but I’m guessing others taking way more.
For those of you with unlimited PTO, how many weeks out of the year would you say you’re on PTO?
Kind of aggravated with the example male leadership is setting right now with regard to parenting at CV. At least 5 men in leadership have had new babies in the last month and it seems like some have taken no time off or only the bare minimum. We have 12 weeks and should be encouraged to use it! If leadership isn’t taking advantage of their own policy, what does that say to the rest of the staff? In my perspective, this is likely further contributing to the gender disparity in CV leadership

How do you tell if an employer is okay with visa sponsorship on linkedin job posting? Some employers clearly mention that they are okay with this. For the ones that don’t, how do you find this info? Is the default assumption that an employer doesn’t sponsor? Looking at product roles in tech/startups.
