I don't do tux. Suit + bow tie 🍾

And try to make the bow tie match my SO's dress

Yes it is. I go tux and not the only one

I was so pissed last year when they changed the Christmas party dress code from black tie to 'ski theme'!

like

Depends on dress code. Ours was Gatsby last year :)

Tux - black not powder blue. Am considering white tie this year

On matching Bow Tie - don't do it! (Unless of course it mean you can not wear a tie........ 😳)

Why not? It's usually something simple, for ex. I'm in a black suit and she's in a red dress so I wear a red bow tie. Black dress, black bow tie. We got lots of compliments throughout the years.

Black Tie = black bow tie.... simple!
White Tie = white bow tie, tails, etc.....

.... I'm sure you get compliments for color coordinating.... just not my thing! You're the wearer bugger the starer!

Oh - and only black cummerbunds.... ever.

Black tie. Black. Always.

Need some advice please - So before the holidays I was working on a project and data flow was extremely slow from the client. The firm I work for gives us the 24th to 3rd off for the holidays. Yesterday I noticed that the SM has been working as we received important data two days ago. I’ve been seeing emails come through as well. Does this mean I should be working as well even if the firm is shut down for the holidays? Should I be reaching out to ask if he needs help? I’m also on vacation. TIA

PTO means time off.

Not kind of time off. Not "hey could you do this one thing for me". Not "trying to save the client money so use your PTO but you'll be working". Not "let's turn everything into an emergency so they have to work".

It isn't a suggestion that they are unavailable. They are unavailable.

If you don't respect their time off, then why should anyone respect yours?

Do not be reaching out to your teammates that are on PTO.

Whatever it is, it can wait.

How do you guys schedule your hours?
Say I need to hit 200 hours per month. Currently I take the amount of working days in a month (M-F) and divide it by 200 to get how many hours I need to bill per day. For example, May has 20 working days, so I need to bill 10hrs./day M-F.

I’ve done exactly that thus far and have been able to stick to a pretty consistent schedule. But I know a lot work on weekends. For instance, if I worked Saturdays too there are 25 billable days which means 8hrs/day.
