Do you guys sometimes think you’re not living life right? Like you’re some type of robot. I think the 40 hour work week + PTO constraints is a bit much.

Depends on who you surround myself with. I was aspired to work long hours when half of my friends we’re in banking and consulting.

I agree guys, the firm may have a lot to do with how I am feeling. Long, long hours!

Before consulting I worked in industry and will say that as the Tech manager for large scale implementations, I frequently worked 12 hour days and plenty of weekends. Hours aren’t that much different now.

If you don’t like what you’re doing, then you will feel like a bot. For me, even if something is a lot of hours, I don’t feel like a bot if it’s something I want to do. When I feel like a bot, it’s time to move on

PWC1, consider RSM? 35 is the stated goal. Weekend work isn’t praised. WFH is all good as long as you’re not in some product that is mainly onsite with clients

@RSM1 Which group / location are you in?

Business applications. Midwest

@BA1 maybe if you had more work/life balance you wouldn’t make that kind of mistake.

@RSM1.....uhhh....not sure what BA team you're on but I see weekend work happen regularly, most of the people I work with work way more than 35 billable hours a week, and half the time we're working when we're supposed to be on PTO. Like don't get me wrong I love working here but being realistic...no 35 billables a week isn't really the goal it's the bare minimum. That being said we really do try to make sure people aren't overworked but...I think most consulting positions are gonna have you working long hours.

RSM 2, I don’t disagree. I wouldn’t say we have a culture of grinding 60+ hours out of people regularly though.

^ that's fair

Any United health group remote employees here? I recently accepted an accounting job and some of the onboard makes it seem like I’m only allowed to work from my home office.

I’ve been waiting for security clearance since July and just found out I’m pregnant after trying for a year. I’m hoping clearance will be granted in early spring 2021 and I can start work soon after. Thankfully taking unpaid time off isn’t a big issue (won’t be eligible for FMLA or parental leave), but worried about timing and telling HR & my supervisor. I’m planning to tell them once I start; know timing isn’t ideal and stressed about starting off on the wrong foot. Any advice?
