The culture around PTO on my 6-7 person team is one where: 1) no one (besides me) takes more than 1-2 days off a year, 2) people frequently brag about how little time off they take…”I only took one day off for my child being born”, 3) people make comments that I’m “always on vacation” (in the last 2.5 years working at my company, I’ve taken cumulatively ~4 weeks off). Team workflow is deal-based so it’s difficult to plan in advance for taking time off as deals often come up unexpectedly. Cont…
I hit rock bottom (I mean it) and in 6 weeks I managed a vacation, landed a new job, found a great guy, and landed a bomb apartment. Everything can change at the drop of a hat - keep your chin up.

I have chronic health issues and I’m severely depressed. I can’t even get myself to work anymore. If I don’t quit, I’m in serious danger of being fired. I feel that I need to just quit and take time off to get better but feel that it will be a stain on my career. I’m a pretty junior lawyer. Any advice. I just can’t do any work at all and I’m my anxiety and depression is spiraling out of control. I see a therapist I try to cope and it’s not working.

Curious what people’s firm’s vacation policy is? Do you have to jump through a lot of hoops to get it approved or is it more of a “use your judgment” approach?

“The analogue headphone jack has been with us for a very long time. But the reason to move on is courage. The courage to move on and do something new that betters all of us.” How ridiculous
Received feedback from a fellow black colleague (new to the team) that I am too direct. Today is also my last day with the company. In the past month or so, this colleague has continuously ignored my emails, requests, direct mentions in group chats. Today they mentioned that they put up a wall due to a comment I made during stand up several months ago. I don't even recall the comment. But why wait until today?? The microagressions we deal with at work is stressful enough.

I am high key obsessed with my 2 year old pup. I’m thinking about getting another dog solely so that he has someone to play with. But I’m mostly anxious about getting a second dog because I don’t want to lose or diminish the special connection I have with my boy. He rides shotgun, sleeps next to me, travels with me, etc. Anyone been through this before? Are my concerns unwarranted?

Need some advice. I am super burnt out due to work, covid, etc. My firm offers a 3month internal rotation that is very popular - you keep full pay while having predictable hours & no client work. I’ve always been interested in it and the timing seems right. My main Partner is NOT supportive and says I should take medical leave instead or drop to part-time. He doesn’t have a project for me to work on but doesn’t want me doing anything else. Should I take the role at a risk to this relationship?
