No, in US it’s called “you’ll still be working 3 days...can you dial in from PTO?”

funny

People are respectful of your PTO if you set the appropriate boundaries. If my team asked me to take a call on PTO, my answer is no.

That said, I do everything I can in advance to make sure there is zero reason for anyone to reach out to me on PTO, such as:
-for any PTO that is more than a day, planning it months in advance
-making the project aware of my planned PTO in the very first staffing call, before I am even locked into the project
-putting my PTO on the team's calendar day 1 of the project
-setting expectations in the weeks prior to the PTO that I will not be available
-Laying out a clear plan for coveragr while I am out

Hi everyone,
I was hoping someone could give me some advice. I’ve been taking care of my extremely sick (literally on the verge of dying) dog. I work from home so it’s not too much of a nuisance but I feel distracted all day long and can hardly get anything done because I worry about my dog. I feel like I’d benefit from a day off or even half a day off but I’ve only been working for my firm for a month now, plus I have “discretionary time off.” Would it be okay for me to ask for a day off?

Anyone else tired of the assumption that because you’re a partner you have to think a certain way and believe certain things. I’m talking about wokeness, work from home, and the recent ever constant pushing of the needle to the left or risk getting “cancelled”. I’m fairly liberal politically so for me to be saying this I think may say something for the current climate. I should be able to hold and express my own opinions without being quashed because I’m not “woke” enough.

Is it possible? Manageable? Any insight would be helpful.

Should one add their personal technology that are currently used for remote work on their resume? Seems most companies will provide the hardware and software needed. However, it’s unclear if the employer will provide this through Teamviewer/VPN connection or will send an actual computer. Along with this, would it be pertinent to add your internet capability (speed, fios/cable/satellite/dsl)?

Anyone know of any places hiring remote case manager work in the DMV area, making OVER 55k? Please send any suggestions you may have!

Dilemma… I left my old company 4 months ago. Today, they’ve reached out to me to ask me to come back at a higher role, Operations Manager. I would’ve jumped on this opportunity if they asked me before. However, this role would be hybrid (2x in office) and come along with more responsibilities and hours than my current WFH role which is very chill. The pay is only 15% more than I currently make. Any thoughts?
