Second PWC1 —> Incompetent client + Incompetent project team = unhappy consultant. There are a few other formulas I can think of that = unhappy or burnt out consultant but most of them depend on the project/team they are surrounded with.

Hello All, Looking to learn how California employers are capping accrued vacation. Say accruals increase with years of service and at 10 years an employee accrues 4 weeks per year, versus at 1 year an employee accrues 2 weeks per year. What is the cap for the 1 year (2 weeks) versus the 10 year (4 weeks)? For example, do you cap at 1.5x across the board? Or, does the accrual cap change?
