When is it either allowed or seen as OK to start using FTO? I recently started here and while I’m not looking to slack off and take time off, I just want to know how it works. (Plus, I don’t want to not use something that I can or should use.) Elementary stuff, I know. But I’ve freelanced my whole career until now. Thanks

I love what I do and where I work - I’ve grown a great network/ reputation throughout the entire company, but it’s getting to that point in my life where we want to build a family. My company offers zero paid leave and has confirmed that policy will stay in place. Not to mention we cannot accumulate PTO and most only get 2-3 weeks off a year AND the company blocked FMLA because it’s owned and operated on tribal land. I’m just not sure if it’s worth seeking new opportunities or sticking it out?

A senior manager sent me a text today to ask if I had sent an email last week, and if not, they would send it right now. I am on PTO today. Am I wrong to feel that was not appropriate? Why couldn’t that have waited. Is it not an acceptable boundary to expect to be left alone when on PTO? How do I properly communicate that to a level above without it coming across badly?

I am on PTO this week and my manager keeps Slacking, texting and emailing me asking questions that I believe can wait until next next week. She has also asked me to take a minute and send a quote. I am trying to do better and when I take PTO I’m focused on really taking time off and spending time with my family. Any suggestions on how to handle this?

I’m based in the US for a company based in Israel. September and October are FULL of Jewish holidays that the entire HQ office will be getting off. All offices there will be closed.

I was told that I might have to take PTO to participate in 2 of those holidays (3 days in total). Can they do that? I imagine that I should not be penalized because of my location.

All insight is appreciated!

Is there an average number of billable hours for first year associates? I’m about 2 months into clerking and get barred in about 2 weeks and the firm I’m at has me set at a fairly high billable minimum. I haven’t hit it yet and I’m getting nervous because I’m starting month 3 and gonna try to hit it so I don’t start facing possible adverse affects (losing vacation days, getting bumped from salaries to hourly, etc.). It’s a very small firm...

I hope everyone at EY will book vacation in November/December to use the accrued hours they EARNED. This PTO thing really is a shame, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the other B4 follow suit. The one thing we all have in common is leadership finding creative ways to screw over employees.
