The regional model is having minimal impact on staffing, folks. I have 7 out-of-region resources on my team, including myself. No roles are unfilled because of it. All the regional model does is add a check for regional resources before staffing out of region. You wanna travel out of region? Then kick ass in your region and make yourself valuable enough to be sought after.

Got a really great PMO role, great work life balance, software implementation. Travel to Grand Rapids, Wyoming! Will take any DTE, even non-strategy folks. A bit of a stretch role...but great role for senior analyst promo story

Need advice for resigning while on bench. I already have a start date with the new employer. Should I do a traditional two week notice or give <=1 week notice instead?

I’ve read on here that sometimes they will let you go day of and pay you out for two weeks but I don’t see why any firm would do that for somebody not currently performing billable work...

Do you think your peers bill their time accurately? I’ve been using the timer on my time management website and trying to keep myself honest for my Instagram breaks, but my mentor (I’m a first year) said he just estimates time based on how many hours he worked that day. Our NYC V-5 firm always does block billing so it’s incredibly easy to say “8 hours on matter X”. Anyway, especially with work from home increasing distractions, do you keep yourself honest with billing?
