1 month and 5 days until I go on vacation. What countdowns do you currently have? Marriage, pregnancy, etc
Desperately need some motivation to stop order taking. If I'm lucky, I'm barely gonna hit 100% this Q. I get a ton of leads and feel like I just need to give them what they want and go to the next. But in reality i do non work related shit for at least 1-2 hours per day. When I WFH, I normally wake up 5 mins before meetings. There's enough time but I'm burnt out having not taken vacation in 6+ years. I can't vacation now. I need to crush numbers and hopefully take some time off in January. HELP
What software companies offer great vacation benefits? I am tired of only getting 13 days pto. I am a hard worker, but I need my time to unplug, and that means taking a 2-3 week vacation once a year.
Spinoff question... I know FMLA technically only covers you if you've worked for 12 months at your employer but has anyone actually had their employer say "sorry you we only here for 10 months so you can take your two weeks of accrued vacation, after that we'll expect you back." ? Since FMLA is unpaid anyway, I would imagine most employers would at least let you have unpaid time off.

Anyone ever put off using PTO days and instead “worked from home” during a planned vacation before they resigned in order to cash out the PTO later? I really don’t want to carry my work laptop when I leave on vacation, but the idea of cashing out the PTO when I end up leaving the job (not yet planned or official) is real nice.

Has anyone attempted to or actually yoloed by billing 2k hours for the year then just going awol on an extended vacation until the next year? Put that unlimited vacation time and those minimum hours to the test. Honestly can't see why I should essentially do work for free after hitting hours.

Took PTO to make it a four day weekend...first few hours back today and I already feel stressed out, anxious and like I want to quit. Burn out or just advertising?
I’ve been totally buried in work for the last 2.5ish months and it’s taken a toll on me. I’m feeling very burned out, to the point where my productivity has tapered off over the past two weeks and I’m no longer able to bill the hours I want. I genuinely try, but at a certain point each day (usually around 6.5 hours) I just feel like I can’t do it anymore. My family is urging me to take PTO to recharge, but I’m too scared about losing more hours to actually do it. Does anyone have any advice?
