Hi, Ben Analyst with 2.5 YOE. Anyone here graduate with a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies? Has that held you back in your career and what degree or cert did you obtain when furthering your career? I am looking to grow in benefits and I've reviewed CEBs, PHR and was interested in obtaining my MA, in HRM? Feedback?

I am in the process of finishing up my MBA but considering also getting my SPHR or PHR cert. Is it even worth it or a waste of time and money?
I just got offered a job with a firm that has billable hour requirements. I’ve never had had billable hours. Is is appropriate to ask what the billable requirements are? I have a good idea from someone I know who works in a different department but want to confirm what they told me. They also provided vacation time of 3-5 weeks. I’m assuming that’s work weeks, but is that appropriate to ask for clarification? I don’t want them to think that’s all I care about, but these are important to me.
Am I the only person excited to go back to the office? I know everyone on here is anti-office but I’m actually looking forward to seeing everyone in person.

Has anyone transitioned from direct sales to indirect (channel, solutions consulting, etc.)?

There is a partner at my firm who literally makes it seem like it is beneath him to even have to talk to you while giving you an assignment. Like I apologize that my existence is so taxing for you but thanks for the work. It’s not even like we have personal issues, he just completely lacks the ability not to make you feel like your presence is beneath him.
What is a good ratio of billable hours to total hours?

My goal has been to spend at least 75% of my time on billable work. Reasonable?

Just needed to vent for a minute about another day of men treating me and other women on our team like their lackeys and ignoring what we say and then doing exactly what we said and pawning it off as their idea. Sigh. Some days it just gets to me more than others.

Moral of the ICC trophy story is you can NEVER underestimate Aussies, can always overestimate Indian side and Kiwis will be underdogs for the most part to only surprise you with their quality bowling+fielding or never say never attitude. Looking forward to next year and hope this changes.

Has anyone else had a mentor (assigned to them by the Company) who seemed to have it out for you? I mean downright sabotage to make you look bad left and right. I didn’t realize it at first. She was fake friendly, but she was discrete too. Some of the executives thought she was amazing, but I had to clean up her work all the time. She wasn’t above me either on the chain of command. Later I found out she had tried for the exec assistant role and they didn’t choose her, they wanted me instead.
