Varies greatly almost to the person. I had a seven year stint where I didn’t have a client in the city I lived in. Now, as a SM, I’m generally at 1 hotel night a week.

Varies. Personally I’ve traveled maybe 4 weeks the last 2 years and two of those were for training. However I know some road warriors who travel 50-100%.

For those that don’t travel, did you communicate that you don’t want to travel when hired? I am ok with traveling once in a while but am scared of getting stuck on a long term out of town engagement.

I communicated I didn’t want to travel with the EM during our kickoff call when I started. Has held up well thus far but YMMV.

Depends on your clients but mostly not that much. Most clients are based in NY or NJ local

Depends on the time of year. I mainly travel for 4-6 months out of the year and then no travel the remaining months

Are promotion notices online (TOD, RPM, etc.)? Or is it just a call with our counselor?

Ex B4 , transitioned to a boutique consulting firm where the travel is significantly lesser. The problem is, I constantly resent my partner who still lives the M-Th life. Anyone else been there?

Resignation letter advice? Do you say where you’re going (going in house from biglaw and don’t want hurt feelings) and effective resignation date? Did you keep it to verbal notice? More/less info?
