PwC Director Sabbatical is a joke. They tell you it is 4 weeks, it is actually 3 weeks plus one week of your vacation, and good luck trying to take it.

Why can't you take it? Straight from firm leadership - they tell everyone to take it. And don't whine about it being 3 plus a week of your own vacation. Most firms get nothing like this. Schedule it in advance, plan ahead and check out.

Sorry 😐

Can you still take it if you were hired as a director (vs promo)?

Well that sucks! I get the 5 years of service but why would a promo be required?

Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.

Thoughts on vacations: is it unrealistic to be left alone while you’re on vacation, even if it’s planned well in advance? Starting to feel like time away is impossible & slowly creeping into burnout

I have this feeling of anxiety always running in the background. Any advise to cope with it? 😔 I tried meditation, which helps - but only at the time I’m doing it. The anxiety comes back not long after. It’s not fun to feel like I’m on overdrive all the time. I’m unable to concentrate both on the job, and outside of that as well. Anxiety is situational mainly due to a project that’s toxic. Can’t leave as leadership isn’t letting me roll off for now.
