Curious what other people's parental leave looks like for companies of a similar size and industry. We are about 150 employees in the CPG (beverage) space. We want to improve/expand our paid leave. How much paid time do you give your employees? Do you give the same amount for the primary and secondary caregiver? Please include your company size and industry.

I developed a social media addiction since the first COVID lockdowns. I’m literally spending my evenings on social media. See, I’m even posting on social media now. How do you deal with that? I’m considering spending a full weekend in the countryside without my phone. I realized this when one of my friends asked smth like “but what do you do afterwork”. And I though about it and I was like.. social media. That’s sad honestly

Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out. It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
