Reflecting on this past year - I have not worked hard at all. Short days, no weekends, really easy work and getting praised for it... tons of wfh and vacation. Is it time for a new challenge?

I’m leaving my current job and immediately starting a new one. I’m essentially maxing out my current 401k (just shy of 19k/ yr) and will definitely at my next one. When I leave, I will get a big PTO payout and I assume extra will go into my current 401k. I’m going to roll that over and then max out my new employer (the full 19.5k in 10.5 months). I assume when I do my 2021 taxes I will have an excess contribution? What will happen then? Will I have to pull money back out? Or will it matter?

Any advice on how to actually take PTO? Every time I’ve tried, I get booked on a client and told I’ll need to work through my PTO. I have literally taken 2 days of PTO the entire year. I keep scheduling well in advance and at times when there is nothing on my schedule close to the requested PTO (so shouldn’t end up with runoff work). I even tried telling them the moment I noticed I was scheduled during PTO. They tell me to cancel because I’ll have time for it later. I’m now booked through 12/31

REFUSE TO RETURN TO THE OFFICE (unless you really want to)!

Despite proving ourselves as more than capable of WFH, agencies will try to force us back to the old ways. Do not budge. If enough of us refuse, they must accept a hybrid model.

Hybrid models are supported by the same finance jerks who gave us open offices and hotdesking. They also know hiring new talent is expensive—pointless even, if most of the labor force demands WFH. We have the upper hand here.

Agencies need to adapt, not us.
