I'd prefer a pre-holiday deadline, if possible. Otherwise you're just holding it over their heads during a time meant for relaxation.

And the people with work due are already out.

Hmm well if it's due, it's due. If you think the workload is something than can easily be done in that 1 day, prolly best not to say anything. But if you're worried about missing the deadline, your hands are kinda tied. You just have to tell em, and as shitty as it sounds, hope that they get an early jump on the work. If that's the route you go, just make sure you adequately reward/praise the guys who take proactive measures during their vacation. Nothing worse than going above and beyond for a partner mandated deadline only to have those efforts ignored. That's a fast track to resentment.

Btw, that's super shitty of your partner. Like, textbook asshole 101 move.

GT1 Too late. Partner moved the deadline to after.

As project manager , it'd be your job to figure out how to resource it so it does get done, especially if you see the shitstorm coming.

Figure out other resources to use.

For those of you that believe in prenups (ONLY), at what net worth disparity do you believe a prenup to be necessary (assuming no family inheritances, trust funds, etc.)?
For example, if you and your partner were new grads and preparing to get married with $10K & $5K net worths, a prenup wouldn’t be worth it. But what about -$20K & +$30K?, $0 & $50K, $25K & $100K? When is a prenup worth it? If you are against prenups, I respect your opinion. However, this is not the post for your disagreement.

Advice? I was hired into a startup because they needed someone with healthcare experience "develop FP&A processes." The thought of getting to use my 15+ years of experience + MBA in HC data analytics really appealed. But now I'm here, and I've realized...my boss is a MICRO manager. She has no industry experience, and simply refuses to think that I may have a better understanding of "best practice" for processes. I thought at first it was because I was new, but there's no sign of it changing.
