It’s a little bit quieter but not much. More facemask wearers than makes me comfortable lol.

As normal and only spotted two face masks total at SFO and SJC. And they were the blue surgical ones too, go figure... In other words it’s just another day at the airport.

Kinda quiet at DCA and BOS this morning. And no traffic to the client site, which is very rare for a Monday morning!

Go enjoy your vacation. Take the standard precautions and you will be fine.

short TSA lines!

Been through LHR, LCY, FRA, and ZRH in the past 2 weeks. Very empty. I’m one of the last few in my company who started on an overseas work trip before the coronavirus travel clampdown and I’m afraid that if I go back to my place in the US just once, I’ll not be able to come back for months. All of my clients are overseas.

I flew out of sfo for my vacation. Same as above. Quiet but normal.

Fairly normal going through ORD. A little less crowded in the lounge, but not unusually so. Biggest surprise was clearing my CPU on a hub-hub flight as a UA plat.

Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out. It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
