Was I supposed to take my work with me?

If I go on vacation and still do whatever you need me to do, will I not have to use vacation days?

Is this just a difference between working for huge corporations and small companies?

I'm starting to consider calling a recruiter again.
I finally realized there's a reason why my husband's coworkers always go on cruises when they're on vacation. We''re saving for one because the last time my husband was "supposedly" on vacation...he wasn't.

I think this is more common in small companies like my husband's employer than it is in large corporations like my employer.
