I’m getting so much salt from managers on my team for taking PTO. They kept asking me the reason and laughed at the reason I gave. Totally unacceptable. Also, I don’t have any more hours onthe project

Do you need to explain it other than requesting the time off? PTO is PTO, whether you’re going abroad to help hurricane victims or sitting on your couch staring at the ceiling.

I can’t be the only one who now wants to know the reasoning...

That being said, yes totally unacceptable and unfair from your team. It’s weird that they kept asking you - and I’m sorry you were in that position

M2 - did you even read the second part of my statement? I said the position they were put in by their team asking repeatedly was inappropriate and unfair, meaning obviously you and I are on the same page. The first part was just a quip, it was a joke

No. This is wrong. The Denver OMP just put out a deck about PTO and how he realized everyone is entitled to it. I guess it hasn’t trickled down to your team yet.

It’s no ones business what you do during your PTO - HR will tell you this... you don’t have to explain anything to anyone, other than the fact that you’re taking PTO.

The reason is none of their business.

So can we know the reason?

This is counter to our People agenda and should be ignored. Any problems, call Tracy.
That said, painting the firm with a bad manager’s brush isn’t exactly the most mature response either. There is no place to go to escape the odd idiot/bad manager. Perspective.

Burnout is because you did something consistently for an extended period. You can do quick fixes like go on vacation, get some sleep, exercise more. But they may only help temporarily, depending on your level of Burnout.

Try adjusting your approach to work / life to a more sustainable, and ideally, enjoyable balance.

I found out that my firm does NOT have profit sharing. I approached the head partner of the firm and proposed a new potential client, this would be a really well paying company.
