They usually don’t care. You just need to email your offices managing partner for approval

If we’re below manager they make us share a room.

At Deloitte it’s a “no.” At DU or otherwise during the program.

Exactly

Where you going

Yes, please do email your OMP for permission. Just make sure you won’t have a roommate and don’t worry about it. I know a lot of people who have brought wives / kids down to the milestone events in Orlando

Same, if below manager we share a room but we can pick our “roommate"

There are Annual trainings where below manager are required to share room but I have been to many other (non annual) trainings where I get my personal room. If you know you are getting your separate room take your significant with you. I don’t think there is any need to ask anyone for permission. I would not ask anyone as long as I am fully participating in required trainings or other events.

If you're not sharing a room with a colleague, no one cares who you have in there. But... every time I bring my husband to trainings I miss out on key networking events. Or I feel guilty I left my husband behind. Better to have them come on the end of the trip and stay a few extra days on vacation. (Unless they are just working from the pool and dont care if you do work stuff.)

It just feels like I can’t have anything.

I’m well-regarded but also not seen as the best/promotion material, at least yet. Just got scolded and it is so disheartening when I need to get myself motivated to work a ton this weekend regardless. Just venting, but happy to hear thoughts.
