Take your vacation. I took a month off this year and travelled - got promoted too.

the MBA which I've worked so hard for. Anyone have advice for feeling trapped?

Definitely agree with taking vacation but I'm on the route to potentially qualify for GSAP and I'm afraid that if I take too much time off it'll hurt my rating. Plus my SM is pretty strict about time off

Spend 4 weeks in europe drinking and partying ever summer. Works for me every year

Go. Friends at IBs quit and are now 10 months into backpacking around SE Asia. I'm jealous, but also, not sure what they're going to do when they get back! However. Hiring managers usually don't like to hear about quitting your job to travel the world. Those kinds of millennials give us a bad name :(

I was saving up my PTO to plan a trip to home country in December. Now the immigration team has started an immigration case so I cannot travel in December. I know as per policy I can only carry forward 10 days of PTO. Is it worth to try to get an exception? I know policies like these are non-negotiable. Has anyone ever tried anything like this and got a positive result?

Looking to take a family vacation out west in August and my mom really want to go to Big Sky.

Thinking we should do a couple nights in Big Sky and a couple nights in Yellowstone. Planning to fly in and out of Bozeman. Any recommendations for Big Sky or Yellowstone?
