Please, Take Your Paid Time Off (If You Have It)
Megan Reynolds

I take my paid time off, but it’s a bit of a tango. It’s the opposite of worry about job security: we’re chronically understaffed (constantly hiring, but it’s a hard job to train for and people wash out) and the work is time-dependent and infrastructure-critical. So getting a specific day or week of leave approved often means figuring out how to get somebody else to cover some annoying chunk of it. It’s pretty much a situation where I have to come up with a grandiose vacation plan to make it worth having to ask around, which can feel a bit like running a Kickstarter.
