So I’ve finally booked a good amount of PTO and got it approved. I’m stressing about taking the PTO. Is this what peak burnout/consulting feels like?

Nah, I don’t care about this job. All it does is pay me. When I’m on PTO I’m unreachable and my job is the last thing on my mind.

Just spent two weeks in South America. By the end of the first week I had some low grade anxiety about my utilization, and by the time I got back it was really impacting me. Consulting messes with you.

Sorry to hear that mate. I’m hoping to travel a bit and maybe meet a few friends. It’s nuts that we can’t really switch off even during PTO

I don't think that's what burn out feels like. Sounds like you are just not able to turn off but that's different than burnout.

Just have to set boundaries like not taking/turning off your work computer and not even looking at email. To be blunt, as an analyst, the team can get by without you for a couple days. Enjoy your time off to recharge

PTO is excluded from utilization. You’re allowed to have a life outside work. Do not feel stressed, enjoy the time off, you deserved it.

Looking for some advice.. I am a Tech Recruiter with over 10 years of experience in the agency world.

How much is appropriate for a restaurant gift card from an associate to a partner?
