I started my job couple months ago and I want to go see my family in another country for two weeks.
I also want to focus on my work since I am working at a slow pace and my manager has also showed concerns. So I really don’t want to take a 2 week vacation right now.
Originally I asked my manager for a vacation and it didn’t have the best outcome so I canceled my plans. But my manager has recently said that he’s fine with me taking this “vacation” so I am wondering does it still look bad to go so soon after joining, if I continue to work while im away? (Some people in my team are still 100% remote so it can work) and I will be able to attend all the team meetings as well.
If anyone has taken work-from-anywhere weeks, my other concern is that realistically is it possible to focus on work while being in a mix vacation/work situation because I do not want to compromise my work during this trip. (I had problems in the past with remote work from home)
How can I phrase this request while not sounding like I am putting less priority on my work.
