What’s the “last straw” that prompted you to start looking for other jobs? I’ll start - I put in my vacation for this entire week, more than a month ago. It was on the team calendar and people were made aware. Friday of last week, my manager says “hey I’m taking 3 weeks off so I’ll need you to cover for me next week. Youre the only one that knows this platform. You’re working right?”

Vacation ideas for Thanksgiving? Six of us (ages 25 to 60) and everyone’s vaccinated. Thought about going to the Caribbean but I guess it’s the wet/hurricane season at that time.

Going through a difficult time in my life (e.g. breakup, family health issues) and it's messing with my work. 🐠, apart from taking PTO, any tricks to help compartmentalise personal issues from work?
We have a fixed PTO time plan (very generous) but leftover rates by now are enormous. It’s gonna be about 160 hours of unused PTO per employee in the end of the year, and we only rollover 80. We thought about rolling over everything, but then accruals get too high. Does anyone have creative ideas how we can roll over excessive hours and don’t make them wages at the same time...

Ad copywriter who’s freelancing outside of agency world, who do I ask for a reference/review from when finishing up a project? Project leader (who I had minimal interaction with) or day-to-day contact who is lower ranking but actually worked with me beyond the initial interview?
