A friend works at Facebook and is unsatisfied with the work environment. She has a small kid + 60 hours work week so can't find time after work to prep. She wants to take about 6 weeks of sabbatical/unpaid time off to prep. Anyone did this before? Any hacks to get such a time off approved by manager/hr ? (not great relationship with manager)
