2 weeks ago I was asked by a partner if my PTO was flexible as a client sent us an urgent request. I stated no as I requested off 6 months ago. Today I woke up panicking that I jeopardized my career at this firm because I said no to being flexible of my PTO as a new college graduate and working less than a year at my current firm. Should be worrying or brush this off?
