FCB just gave unlimited PTO?
My wife is asked to take unpaid time off for an indefinite amount of time vs. being officially furloughed. Is this disadvantageous to her since she can’t get unemployment benefits?
How often does your engagement leader pressure you to work while on PTO? Don’t understand why they can’t pull someone else who isn’t on PTO to pickup the work. After all, people are very replaceable in our industry...
I’m 9 days out from a desperately needed week-long vacation. I’m so unbelievably burned out that I can’t focus. I have so much to do before my trip, but I can’t seem to get anything done. I just sit at my desk and stare at my computer. Any recommendations for how to force myself to be productive for the next week or so?
I can’t stand people who are “taking time off” and are online doing work. Like, why?!? Have some boundaries for yourself. No one thinks you’re a hero for doing this.
Need help deciding on a location for my family's vacation. It would be my family and my brother's family (4 adults&3kids). I am thinking PR, Mexico or Hawaii. What do you guys recommend? Open to other kid friendly beach locations as well. TIA

Anyone have managers / leadership (non consulting) who seems disengaged? We all hate micro managers, but on the other side of the spectrum my manager signs on at 10am, doesn’t respond to requests for input, takes a ton of PTO yet still is angry that my project is on fire and gives me tons of extra work, it makes me feel very demotivated - why should I kill myself and work hard if they don’t give a shit, just makes me feel dumb for putting in effort.
I work at a boutique firm and they are re-evaluating their PTO policy. How many PTO days does your firm offer?
I haven’t worked with a therapist before but know I’m totally burnt out and need some time off from work. Has anyone successfully started a relationship with a therapist and gotten their support to do an LOA shortly after starting with them? I’m worried because I don’t have a long standing relationship with a therapist, they’ll be resistant to supporting this. Would appreciate any advice
