I truly feel I can never take off. I’m out of office for the next week taking a bar exam and then going on a well needed vacation. After studying and taking another bar. However I’m still getting emails and meetings. So far I have 2 calls this week and I’m out of office.
Just out of curiosity, and if you’re comfortable sharing, has anyone here had minor plastic surgery and how did you request time off?
When you’re considering job offers and the benefits at each company, how many PTO days are the norm? What’s considered “good”? Is there an industry standard or average in the US?
In btw round 1 & R2 interviews with firm 1, there's a gap of 25 days. I got a interview at another firm during this period. Shld I tell the HR at firm 1 about the same in next intrvw? If yes, what to tell & what not? Also, in btw those 25 days, I had put in my papers at current firm bcoz needed time off due to personal reasons. I am afraid if I bring this up, they'll take it as if I am lyin/that I have offers somewhere else (bcoz that's when you resign) [cant hide bcoz will hv 2 tell sometime]
Came across the concept of “cash envelope stuffing” on youtube. Seems like a pretty good concept to avoid overspending on each category of expenses. I am trying to get some ideas to incorporate this concept using multiple bank accounts/ cards. Where I allocate a set budgeted amount of money each month, to each bank account tagged for a specific category (groceries, vacation, emergency fund, etc). Is this something you have tried or have any ideas on how to go about it? Do you recommend this?
ACN peeps...I want to take PTO while on the bench. Is there anyone besides CC/TFS that I should notify?
Felt good seeing the fireworks riding down I20 thru atlanta tonight. Enjoy the last 30 minutes of this holiday and we’ll keep going strong tomorrow. 💪🏽

Has anyone attempted to or actually yoloed by billing 2k hours for the year then just going awol on an extended vacation until the next year? Put that unlimited vacation time and those minimum hours to the test. Honestly can't see why I should essentially do work for free after hitting hours.
Agreed to take a 30 minute call despite having scheduled PTO...3 hours later I finally closed my laptop. This job definitely takes whatever you’re willing to give and then some...
Open up? Sure, I think it's time. But to relax mask requirements just as we are returning from a spring vacation? I don't think it's a good idea...
What agencies have flexible time off??
made a mistake, left my job for another and it didn’t pan out. took the first offer that came my way to make ends meet but after a week i know i will hate this place bc of the expected time commitments (24/7 on call, 15 min response to every email) i need mental and career advice, i feel like im spiraling over my career future, i don’t know how i will ever be able to apply anywhere with a crazy resume now. id love to take time off but can’t afford
Man, i just found out i have a leak in my house water mainline. I am shocked to see the estimated cost. $1100. That will be the highest repair cost that i have to face. Man owning home can incurre lot of repairment cost. There goes my vacation budget in a drain.
Got the official word that my baby girl is scheduled for her open heart surgery on 9/10 to repair her VSD. Knew this day was coming eventually but still so anxious and scared.
If putting in your notice while on PTO/bench, would you propose that the last day be the last date of your PTO (given it’s more than 2 weeks away)? Or sooner / 2 weeks from now?

How do you get your toddler to adjust to new nanny/au pair, especially if you are home with another kid or working? Our 2.5 year old loved our last au pair but always asked to be with me instead. I’ve been home with him now for a few months and new au pair comes in two weeks. I’ll still be on maternity leave till August so I’ll be home with him and infant and au pair…. Just trying to figure out how best to handle this without stressing him too much.
