If you need it, you should definitely take it, no matter what people have to say about it. You have to prioritize your health over your work, if you want to have a sustainable career. I think people’s perception vary among firms, practice groups and at the individual level. You can’t control people’s perception. You should do what is right for you.

No right answer here; depends on who you work with and whether they have any human empathy. But my experience is that, if you’re a productive associate, no one is going to knock you. It’s a small window in a long career. But take it if you need it. And don’t forget the FMLA if it is something more than just a need for a break.

I work for an educational and outdoor recreation mobile platform, as a marketing partnership manager. When I started had a very little piece of equity, and the goal was to get acquired, which happened a year and a half ago. But now with our parent company, our salaries seem below average and curious on what I should be asking for compensation, since the upside of equity isn’t there anymore. Parent company seems pretty lean running (PE) and budgets are still tight.
