What’s wrong with telling people you are going on PTO? Anyone that challenges PTO is a c**t. It is in your contract. As long as you give enough notice (say, a few weeks) then no problem. If you don’t take your PTO then you are working for free. That makes you an idiot. Neither type of person is likely to add much value.

Deloitte OP: you need to let people know. What’s way worse is if the client asks about you and you aren’t there. Even if your manager can say “X is taking care of this” items just weird if you’re suddenly not available with warning or explanation.

PTO looks bad at my client. Long term, "premier" client. We are expected to not take vacations or training, and if we do, firedrills take precedent over those things. Drives me nuts but it looks too good on my resume, I cannot leave.

Yeah I’m sorry what? The fact that you take PTO has no bearing on your resume. Also, and this is NOT meant to come off as an insult, but you work at KPMG...not MBB...take your damn PTO unless they’re paying you enough not to.

Why wouldn’t you tell your client you’re going on PTO? So long as coverage is in place I’m sure they’d rather know you’re taking time off than to wonder why you have not shown up for an entire week or two.

Great exit opportunity to a national NGO to lead their transformation COE. $ marginally less than what I make now, but overall better WLB. 5 weeks vacation, 15 sick days, reduced summer hours & they're looking to see if they can give me the extra 30k to pay back my signing bonus (since I'm leaving Acn within the year). It sounds amazing and meaningful work! A tiny part of me has Stockholm syndrome and nervous leaving Acn...

Pencil dipped in paint and shoved in my new electric sharpener. There are acts of destruction daily in my classroom. Most of my classes are 25 kids in a small room. When my attention is taken for a second, someone does something like this. Gluing things to counters. Hiding paintbrushes instead of cleaning them. 15 years, I've tried everything to cultivate a respectful classroom culture, and they just don't care. I'm so tired. So, so tired. I don't know how much longer I can do this.

Debate: If you’re interviewing for a new position outside the firm and the interviewer is unavailable after your billable hours (staff augmentation project). Typically for appointments (dentist, doctor), we make up the time outside of working hours. Would you A) block off the time on your calendar as an appointment and make up the 30 min outside of normal working hours OR B) take 30 minutes of PTO for interview
