Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out.

Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.

Any moms take off a few weeks during first trimester? How did it work? Can you use STD instead of PTO? If yes, does that then reduce the STD you have for mat leave? I live in CA if that makes a difference.
For utilization, if the denominator is fixed to 2080 (40 x 52), there is no way you can be a 100% utilized even if you're staffed throughout the year and bill 8 hours per business day?
New SM at a firm and asked to lead a difficult project with abrasive client that 6+ SMs before me have cycled through and all been rolled off. I don’t have much of a choice being new to the firm… or do I?
