What’s my responsibility for checking emails while I’m on vacation? I have great producer coverage for all my projects while I’m gone but I’ve never gone complete radio silence for an entire week.

If you have great coverage, gracefully back away and enjoy your week off

Put in your vacation responder that you won’t be checking email. You’re good.

Radio silence. Enjoy your vaca. It’s hard when you’re invested, but you have to do it to keep sane

This is your time off. Time for you to reset. Do not check your email, not worth it, especially when you have someone covering for you

Ask someone outside of our industry this question and you’ll get laughed at or puzzled looks. That’s your answer. Take a vacation. You get vacation days for a reason. If you don’t properly use them and have a life then you’re not helping the addictive nature of our culture. Go and enjoy. No emails.

I give my covering producer my info to reach me in case of emergency and trust that they’ll use it wisely. I also set expectations via the auto responder that I won’t be checking my email so there’s not assumption

You need to take your time. If you have good coverage, your coverage should be able to figure it out regardless! It’s healthy to detach and refresh for a little while. I know we all have trouble letting go and not being in control of what’s happening with projects we’re all involved in, but decompressing is necessary.

None.

Do not check email on vacation. Period. If you are checking email, you are working. If you are working you are NOT on vacation by definition. Do not check email

Would you go on an international vacation shortly after a frozen embryo transfer (5-10 days after)? It is looking like my first transfer opportunity will be shortly before a trip I already have planned. I’d rather not wait, and the one time I have been pregnant before I implanted on a international vacation but I don’t know if this is a stupid thing to do? I have a very stressful job so maybe it would be good to be away from work?? Curious what others think.

I have been in sales even before college. I'm reaching a burn out. I feel like the expectations get higher the more work I put in and that ends with me putting on many hats to get done. I can't catch a break, let alone allowed a decent vacation without having to negotiate based on performance. I honestly don't want to be in sales forever. I'm versatile when it comes to any tasks due to the nature of wearing many hats. Any suggestions?

Considering a move to NTT Data in a healthcare consulting role. Mixed reviews in the bowls. Major concerns are bench policy, staff aug roles, 2 week PTO, and high turnover due to job dissatisfaction. Recruiter and mgr had great things to say around growth and opportunity, which doesn’t align with feedback from the bowls or Glassdoor. Understanding things have changed there in the last few months, I need un-biased advice from fellow fish who have recently joined or can speak to recent changes
