ask yourself: "how would anyone know?" and if the answer you come up with is "I'm not sure" or "they wouldn't", then I think you have your answer

Strong nay. Think about being a good business operator.

As long as you're not missing out on meetings that should be done in person. I'm indifferent to where someone decides to work from, while on the bench, as long as they're delivering better than expected results in terms of driving revenue.

probably also a good idea to complete a few online trainings while you're gone. you know, just in case someone asks

I would encourage you to think about the bigger picture when a question like this comes up. Ask yourself how does this impact our margin and would I prefer a better bonus as a result. The quicker people start running this as their own business the better well all be. Ok I'll get off my soapbox now.

I wouldn't go for entire week esp if not holiday week, bc things can come up when you are gone mid week when they need you on site asap. I usually book mon-wed pto if I m actually out of town
