Is time off/vacation and sick time negotiable with WPP? Specifically Ogilvy NY prior to accepting an offer? Heard it’s only 10 days of PTO. That’s crazy 🥴

I negotiated to 15 when I started at Ogilvy NY. Entering Partners [Ogilvy’s version of a VP] start at 20.

Negotiate for sure.

Just use your sick days as PTO and call it a day.

Got offered 10 and negotiated 15. Not counting sick days which is another 5.

15 PTO + 5 sick

You can negotiate up, but PTO caps at 20 days.

I had 4 weeks there. You can negotiate what you want.

Does it depend on your level?

Stumbled across this group a little earlier than I should have (husband and I are just starting to try!) Does anyone have any advice when it comes to alcohol, specifically having a few drinks the week of ovulation? I’ve cut it off cold turkey the past few months but will be on vacation for the first time in a while during the week we will officially start trying. I’ve read some articles that say one drink is okay, but others say not to. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
