How long can you do the weekly travel before you need a break? I just hit 20 weeks including lots of Fridays at the client and weekend trips and wondering if it’s unreasonable to ask for a remote week
If one is on a long workshop call (not an optional one and spanning more than a few hours) that spans across the lunch time period, does your firm or client generally provide for lunch when it's been in-person, or reimburse for lunch when it's been in-person or working from home (the latter particularly due to COVID)?

I am a Senior Consultant on an engagement for a client I would like to work for. The client is back office and the job is front office. Does anyone have any experience with this?
Very thankful to have a week each month remote on my project. Let's be real, we don't need to be on the client site every week.
A male colleague of mine, who just joined the team this week, has made inappropriate advancements towards me during a team event, touching my leg while talking to me and saying how pretty I am. Worst thing is he’s joining my project too… It’s a no brainer that this is unacceptable, but it’s the first time this happened to me in a work setting and I’m unsure how to handle it. What steps should I take first? Report to HR immediately or speak to my team’s partner first? Any advice is appreciated
Hey 🐠 I'm in the bench this week and a confirmed project next week. Any recommendations to do with free time in NY? Should I even bother going to the office?
The Senior reporting into me has clearly been taking advantage of being semi on the bench even though we are working on a small project. It's 10 a.m. on the East Coast. Wake up, John Doe!!

What is the appropriate way to provide your two week notice? Should you have a conversation with your coach or project leads beforehand, or should you just go on your internal company page and hit that resign button and go through whatever processes you are prompted to do? What steps do you take before after submitting your notice as a general practice?
I heard you speak at the ad age small business conf. where you said you didn’t have a client yet. I was wondering how did you get your clients? Previous relationships? They sought you out? Search?
What’s the weirdest (SFW) thing huge done while on a WFH conference call so far? I just cut my toenails while listening to a client talk for 30 minutes.
First day on the project and the partner takes out an hour to teach me how to configure (1:1). Uncle D rocks!!!
Happy Friday fellow comsultanites! Friday is like putting your first foot into the proverbial weekend hot tub. List something you’re pumped to do with your precious time outside of client pain

Any tips for a first-timer? I'm just starting and plan on hitting up the grocery store at the client site. Any must-have grocery items you recommend?
Hi everyone! I’m a young CPA, relocating to Raleigh. I made the decision to transition into sales after realizing that I want to bring more fun into my career. I’m currently reading sales books, watching Keenan’s YouTube channel, and learning all I can. I’m relentlessly applying for SDR positions but I’m having trouble landing interviews (been applying through LinkedIn). I would appreciate advice from anyone who transitioned from another industry into sales. How did you break the barrier?

Anyone else really pack on the pounds during work from home? I really blew up - probably gained 40-45 pounds. I feel so bloated and sluggish all the time and none of my clothes fit anymore. I hope I’m not alone.

I have a good girlfriend who is 7 mos pregnant. Her current gig just cut her salary due to Covid, but offers 3 mos paid maternity leave. She has an upcoming zoom interview with a company with whom she think she’d be a good fit. She’s wondering if she should disclose her pregnancy at a call back interview or after an offer is made. Thanks for any insight you all have!
Better to be a big fish in a small pond or a little fish in a big pond for MBA apps (I.e. superstar at B4 or mediocre/below average at MBB; metaphorically speaking ofc, ik the B4 is technically bigger in terms of size but you understand the point in terms of competitiveness)?
Thinking to transfer my status from AA and try United or Delta. I am platinum with AA, pretty sure I won't make Exec and don't plan to do a mileage run. Pros and cons of both please?
How much leeway do you have when negotiating start dates? I would like to start in Jan since I save most of my PTO for the holidays. If I start in Nov/Dec I either won’t be able to take it or will start in a hole. Plus new job offers WAY less PTO (VP thought it was 10 days to start vs my current 25, but am currently waiting for formal offer from HR).

My husband just recovered from covid but still has lingering symptoms- loss of appetite, fatigue, memory lapse. If you had covid, did you experience symptoms after testing negative? How long did it take you to fully recover? He got covid a week after getting first vaccine so his case was mild.
