My friend loves it.

Worked there for years. Plus side is you can live where you want and the profile of consultants tends to be more senior. The bad part is it is really a Tier 3 consultancy. Ruled by a tight click of men (only) going back 25 years to KPMG. Exceptionally political. Irregular raises and bonuses. Focused on public earnings. The ambitious exit. The slackers or those near the end of their careers stay. You could do worse, but you could do a LOT better.

It’s that time of the month and symptoms are so bad that I want to request PTO and take off for the rest of the day. What’s the most appropriate response to give to my male boss as to why I am requesting this PTO? Do I just be blunt or should I say I’m experiencing “lady problems.”
