My senior has a very "my staff works hard so that I don't have to" attitude and I'm kinda sick of it.

Are you sure your senior is not picking up the manager’s slack? My senior always used to have his hands full with the managers work and I would be dealing with all of his work

Wait till you understand what it’s like to be a senior, then you will get it. They’re most likely delegating down so they can do their manager’s work.

There’s been a lot of negativity recently around here re: FB people are biased against staff, so in the interest of fairness, I’ll ask - did your senior ever actually say those things out loud or express them in any way? Most seniors are really busy either manager’s work or actually just project managing/coaching. I remember some days when I would sit with multiple associates for over an hour to explain work to them, and at the end felt like I had nothing to do myself until their work came in for review. But those days were rare, and usually at the beginning of an audit. But I think those things happen and they usually mean your senior is investing in enabling you to do the work they were doing as an associate and letting go. That said, I’ve also witnessed some managers who said “Now that I’m a manager, I will only review, and won’t ever start work myself,” which is...a terrible attitude. So I’m curious where your senior falls on this scale.

My first 2 busy season jobs ended (SA) and I am only booked on my new job for 20 hours this week.. I scheduled all my doctors apts for this week & am also dealing with a severe crohns diagnosis/treatment plan as well as mental health issues. Is it ok to take sick days (unlimited) for most the week this week to take care of myself? Or do I have to use vacation.. (which I don’t have much of since I got back from maternity leave in oct)

Posting here since the other bowls are mostly about CTCs. I've been out of therapy for a while and I think I'm depressed again. I don't eat, I can't sleep. I'm going through a quarter life crisis and just can't pull out. The therapist advised to not let the failures define myself. I tried to work things out but I feel like I'm failing again. What's worse, sick, not working, or a wrecked family? When I introspect, I fathom I lived a wasted year. Isn't it paradoxical to want to live and die?

When taking a personal LOA, how much detail do you need to provide to your company on why you need it? I’ve been seriously considering taking extended time off for mental health reasons mostly but do not have any specific diagnosis, I’m just beyond burnt out and just can’t keep going. Using PTO hasn’t helped. I’m worried about what the perception will be of me after that, and if I need a reason for leave that can be backed by something specific such as a medical reason.

There are students all over the world that seem to get along just fine without senior activities.

10 years ago today I had my tubes tied. It was the best thing I ever did for myself. It took years standing up to practitioners, reiterating my preference, and fighting for medical decisions over my own body. Ten years later and it was all worth it. No hormones, no condoms, no risk of making the hard decisions some I know have had to make. For anyone contemplating it, for anyone fighting with their docs, don’t give up if it’s what you really want.
