Didn’t get extended officially and asked my manager but he didn’t give confirmation and I don’t wanna risk missing on the flight deal

How often are you go-lives on schedule. It is likely your planned vacation will be the month before go live so you should take it.

Client email just came in on this holiday weekend. Nothing urgent but they do want a deliverable. Targeting closing late next week. Reasonable to wait until Monday/Tuesday or would you run back home to your computer and mess up your plans?

I seriously forgot what it's like to work a normal 40 hours. I've been working at least 50 hours (billable) since last summer due to staff cuts with my only breaks being thanksgiving and Christmas and some PTO sprinkled here and there. It feels like this is the new normal for a lot of people in public

Is a firm allowed to only give you 1 month notice before they change their PTO policy - they went from 6 weeks PTO and carry over allowed to now starting in January it will be unlimited and obviously carry over would be meaningless. People had saved multiple weeks and didn’t take off in 2021 so they could take that extended time off - they are mentioning that “oh it’s discretionary now so you can take all you want” but I feel like we’re getting cheated and they should have to pay us out balance
