Consulting

Has anyone received a letter from talent that their bonus would be reduced because of late time entry? Threshold is 90% and my friend had 88.4% because they could never connect to VPN. Fight it?

Fight it? Are you kidding, T&E is how we run the business AND how we bill our clients so we can pay everyone. You don't make it a priority, you should not meet expectations, earn a 4 and not even be bonus eligible- so count your lucky stars that it is simply reduced...

Concur that VPN excuse is lame, BS. Your friend should have engaged walked up tech support or called for support. It’s very clearly stated that late time entry will cause challenges during talent discussions

VPN line is bs. 1. There’s an app you can use for time entry. 2. I’ve never been connected to VPN to enter my time 3. You should lose your bonus if you can’t manage a simple task like entering time.

I agree, I call bill shit! VPN not required for time or expense entry. Tell your friend "suck it up buttercup" do the easiest thing there is to do at the firm!
