Full week. Three day weekends for true vacations are more expensive if you go anywhere and don’t give you enough of a break.

I take 3 day weekends pretty often without charging vacation because of flexing and only use vacation time for full weeks off.

I actually have no plans to go away until late this year, but by then my vacation time would restart back to 2 weeks.

I started this new job a few months ago and they give newbies like me one full week of vacation time to use before our year end, which is April 30th. Just trying to figure out if a week would be best or 3 day weekends 🤔

Stop talking about how busy and frantic you are with work on a holiday week. It’s not a badge of honor, and I’m not impressed. There are only two reasons why you’re busy:
1. You suck at planning.
2. You don’t know how to set boundaries.
3. You don’t care enough about your direct reports to set boundaries so that they can relax this week.
