Reminder to everyone: use your 2021 vacation time. Don’t let it pass you by just because you’re not traveling. Take a long weekend once a month to nap and eat chips in sweat pants all day. We all need to do our part to normalize self care, and sitting at home doing “nothing” is just as worthy of a vacation day as pina coladas on the beach.
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Has anyone ever taken a leave of absence/sabbatical due to burnout/exhaustion/depression? I'm feeling at my wits end with everything right now and have an appointment with my dr tomorrow. I feel like some time off away from everything would do me some good - I also have some other medical problems - but I'm afraid of what it might do to my career, what my co-workers/family will think, etc.
If buy the partners you work with regularly a holiday gift, how much do you spend? Usually I get baked goods or food items which you can’t tell the actual amount spent on. This year, though, I’d like to support local restaurants by encouraging people to order takeout—hence, giving gift cards. How much is appropriate for a restaurant gift card from an associate to a partner?
Leaving a company and starting somewhere new means having to start all over with vacation accrual, learning all the tools and resources/ins and outs to navigate through company support. What other things are kind of annoying but not when starting someplace new?
Throughout pretty much my entire career, I've never taken a true extended vacation. I'm about to take nearly 2.5 weeks off and actually be mostly away from work to focus on my wife and kids. To be honest, I actually have some anxiety about it. Any sage wisdom from others on disconnecting?

BCG friends - what exactly does the PTO (Predictability, Teaming, and Openness) role do? What does the role entail / how do they work with consulting project teams?
Me and girlfriends are planning a girls trip to Cabo for spring break. I'm also going to be working at full-time at LEK as an associate. Will it be possible to balance vacation with work (e.g. Take a few hours off mid-day, get off at 10 pm to go to the clubs) without anyone noticing? I can't take time off because it'll be my first case.
Do I tell my manager I’m leaving the company before their 5 day birthday PTO or after? If I tell, it would be the day before their last day. If I hold on to it will be 2 weeks before my last day. I want to help interview for replacement if they want me to. Also wrapping up my project and Demi going into surge support work, which I expect to do while they’re OOO.
