If it's at your home airport, yes, it's worth it. Especially during the holidays. If traveling internationally, get Global Entry.

Hi,

Can someone please let me know how is the annual appraisal and growth in SLC?

I have gone through lot of posts in Glassdoor where existing employees are not happy with increments and slow growth.

I found out on Oct 7 that an in person “summit” was planned my job. I signed up for back up care so that I could send my LO there while I went to the meetings. That hasn’t panned out and I’ve found out that others got notified last minute that the back up care couldn’t be honored. My flight is tomorrow. I’m stressing about what to do in this situation. Additionally, my husband’s probation period at his new job isn’t over so he can’t take off and we don’t have any family close to help out.

Finally, now that WFH is more accepted (thanks 2020), do you think more industries will “reimagine” this arbitrary 40+ hr. work week?

Some orgs tried/have proven to be more productive with less (e.g. 6hr work days, 4 day work weeks) but I don’t know if consulting leaders are enthusiastic about normalizing this since “it’s the land of billable hours”...
