PTO is more efficient to say.

Haha!! A recruiter called me today and when I told him I was on LOA from work, he went, "oh, matleave??". Um. No.

My PTO was denied because I’m taking some time after I come back from maternity leave two months prior to the PTO.

TGL?

Generally, you need to make sure a project is staffed properly to take PTO. If multiple members of a team are out or Go-Live is happening it can be denied.

Positive spin: they want to ensure you are fully reintegrated after a long break! Reality, your approver is an ahole.

Would you leave before busy season if you get an offer in December before the holiday break or would you negotiate your start date to try to stay through the busy season (6 weeks) due to staff shortages? I feel like I’m fucking my team over but also am so over audit and all the hours/work they’re giving me due to staff shortages.

Looking at making a move from a top 20 city to PNW farm style living. Work from home permanently and live peacefully.

Also,has anyone sold their house to an institutional buyer? Obviously, you may get less cash, but it will also take longer to sell, so you are paying holding costs, etc and taking on more market risk.

Does contributing to 401k beyond the match make sense? You can’t touch it until you’re 59.5. If i were to invest on my own in various etfs Ill pay the 22% tax upfront and then cap gains would be 15% when i sell. I’d have freedom to use that money to invest in real estate. when i pull my yearly salary out in retirement I’d Atleast be in the 22% bracket if not higher. Since the last 3 dem presidents have increased spending like crazy i expect massive tax hikes in the future. Am i wrong?
