I compare # of days to each other, but you can also divide your salary by 2040 to get your hourly wage and multiply that by (8 * the # of vacation days) to get a dollar estimate for the vacation days

If you use this method, make sure you multiply it by a factor that approximates what portion of it you will realistically take in a given year. Hopefully it’s 100%

I look at it a bit opposite. Factor yearly work hours (total hours - holidays - leave). Take your total comp divided by that to get a comparison number.

Hi- where I currently work is very toxic and I was recently offered a new job at an entirely different place (big change!). Seems like an easy move? Well not really- one of my closest colleagues is my direct coworker and struggles with a piece of the job that is key to the role. With me leaving, I would be abandoning them. I’m very conflicted because I very much want this new job, but I’m feeling extremely guilty for leaving a dear friend to fend for their self. Any advice on what to do?

I work at an agency that prides itself on doing the right thing and partnering with clients to figure out a problem.

We have a client that is typically less-than-engaged but on a retainer. When she's eager and engaged, she takes up a lot of time... a lot of time that takes away from others in her org.

Is it typical to credit a client on retainer for unused hours i.e. work more because they were unresponsive.

I understand the principle, but it makes it hard to service other clients.

I am pretty confident and know how to be appropriately assertive, but other than that I am wondering if anyone has thoughts or advice.
