Need some advice. I am super burnt out due to work, covid, etc. My firm offers a 3month internal rotation that is very popular - you keep full pay while having predictable hours & no client work. I’ve always been interested in it and the timing seems right. My main Partner is NOT supportive and says I should take medical leave instead or drop to part-time. He doesn’t have a project for me to work on but doesn’t want me doing anything else. Should I take the role at a risk to this relationship?
