Sounds like a good way to leave on a bad note, but if you don't care about that then go for it

Defeats the purpose of "two weeks notice". Two weeks notice is to allow your team to adjust for your future absense. If you take PTO instead, then you may as well just leave on the spot

In industry not consulting… Manager level Team member did that and I (analyst at the time) had to take over her [off track] project with 1 day notice. Was quite the learning experience for me… 😬

No. But you take the payout and try to push out your start date to have a gap, which is similar.

I have 4 weeks notice and took a week of leave at the end (so I was in office 3 weeks and 1 week of leave). If you do it right and make sure your squared away before you take leave it shouldn’t be an issue.

I’m getting so much salt from managers on my team for taking PTO. They kept asking me the reason and laughed at the reason I gave. Totally unacceptable. Also, I don’t have any more hours onthe project

How do you feel about public holiday gatherings? I felt like such a crummy mother for not taking my kids out to see a parade or fireworks yesterday. But then with the tragedy in Illinois and (on a much smaller scale) the number of local fires because of fireworks (which are banned in my town, btw), I feel so much safer having my kids at home.

Debate:
If you’re interviewing for a new position outside the firm and the interviewer is unavailable after your billable hours (staff augmentation project). Typically for appointments (dentist, doctor), we make up the time outside of working hours. Would you A) block off the time on your calendar as an appointment and make up the 30 min outside of normal working hours
OR B) take 30 minutes of PTO for interview

Is it typical to get a year end raise, even if you are not getting promoted? For example, I’ve been at my current rank for one year and am close to next level. My value is higher since I am more experienced but still billed as a senior analyst. Is it reasonable to ask my employer for a raise? My reasoning as follows:
- My work quality has significantly improved since last year
- 90% utilized this year
- Current pay is below market value
- No harm in asking
