Anyone here from Point B? Is it true that you guys don't have PTO?

I think the name itself is suspect. Why be B when you could be A?

I've been recruited by them before and if I remember correctly they basically get paid "hourly" so a salary offer is based on an anticipated number of working hours (i.e. 1800 or something, I'm making that number up). If you work less than that because say, you took 12 weeks off (ie PTO but not called PTO) then you make less than your planned salary. I had great experiences meeting with Point B people.

I've asked about point b on here before and it seems they're a complete sham compared to the rest of our firms

I have 3 point bs on my engagement. All ex Big 4 / Accenture. All seemed to have good resumes and are experienced. Yet they all have variations of PMO roles

In what way? Can you elaborate? They seem to be pretty highly rated.

They seem to be highly rated on Glassdoor, etc. Their compensation structure does seem to be pretty weird.

If I wanted a change I'd consider going there. People seem happy. I really liked everyone I met. The work seemed interesting.

Do you expect true intimacy when hooking up casually/fwb? I have a hard time enjoying sex when I know I don’t genuinely want to be with someone/have a relationship with them, but I’m horny all the time. How much of an emotional connection do you have with that person before you hook up with them?
