Don't bring a date unless it's someone who is personable/extroverted enough to have fun without you. Otherwise, they'll stick to you the whole time and you won't have as much fun.

Running in my 8th year in construction here in the SE. In my second job right now as a PM and Risk Management (5th year). I have a Masters Degree in Construction and additional certification programs from Cornell University, I think I am good with the pay I am getting (FOR NOW!) BUT

Currently get paid 10 PTO+6 holidays in addition to winter shutdowns from December 24th to Jan1st. Hence the PTO is limited to 10 for new hires upto completion of 5 years.

Is this a fair PTO for someone in year 8?

Currently on PTO (family vacation) and I keep having to deal with issues at work. I am an engineer at multiple buildings that have no one else who is cross-trained amongst them.

And should I ask for overtime for even having to deal with work issues while on PTO?

So…..my director has been in the position for a little over a year. We’ve been working our tails off and last quarter were informed of no bonuses. I understand that business is down and need to save money. The straw for us was a company holiday party. They completely forgot to have one and now taking us to a bar for drinks and appetizers. Someone asked if that includes a dinner and they said no. The optics is just so bad. Any advice? Really rethinking my current situation and need to reevaluate.

For example, I know UK companies have great PTO benefits, and I know of some companies that pay 100% of their employees benefits. TIA
