I took a month off once. Firm shutdown was almost two weeks and then tagged on another two weeks in January. It was awesome.

Doesn't matter. You can even go in negative vacation hours and be okay.

If you're working during the holidays, use those codes. I'd say 3 weeks and use about 40-50 hours of PTO. I maybe wrong and it depends on your accumulated vacation.

Depending on how much PTO you will have left for the year?? Come on OP.

Holidays meaning during the summer time etc.

I took 3-3.5 wks last year, including shut down, and leading into new year (I will say, it helped my engagement slowed down around then)

Utilization gets hurt guys

Firm shutdown?

Just got a lateral offer, and know that conflicts/background check will take a little bit of time, and i’m hoping to take a week or two off in between jobs. My question is: would you take a vacation now or in the next few weeks before giving notice? Already losing motivation haha

I know this varies based on the company but besides project needs from the hiring manager, does anybody take multiple months between when your background check clears and you actually start? I don’t want to immediately jump from job to job but not sure if taking some time off is generally accepted.

EY 🐠, your winter/summer breaks say “use 3 days of vacation or personal days”. So for winter break Dec 25-Jan 1, do you have off that entire break, but just have to use 3 days of PTO and charge the rest to Holiday? Am I reading this right? Also I see $60/month reimbursement for cell phones, does this mean if your phone bill ever goes over $60/month you’re on the hook for the difference?
