How do you all feel about team members (particularly analysts) who have scheduling/travel restrictions because they have a dog?

That you probably shouldn't be a consultant with a dog unless you have someone at home to take care of it because it isn't fair to the dog...

You shouldn't be in consulting that requires travel if you are going to put restrictions on your ability to travel.

I think we can completely put restrictions on our ability to travel. We work at firms with folks all over the country to put on projects and the ability to work remote. As long as the restrictions are communicated in advance, this should not be a problem. I would hate to be on one of your projects if this is your prevailing attitude

I can’t judge the full extent and trials of someone’s home life. There is usually a lot more going on than it would seem at the surface. I would give the person as much leeway as was reasonable up to the point it becomes a detriment to their work.

haha a team member couldn't travel to client because wife was our of town and dog needed to be watched.

My husband works from home and does the bulk of dog care but the times he’s had to travel for family stuff or is otherwise not available I don’t feel bad about saying I have to work from home or have time off. It’s more about planning for when you’re not available then the reason for unavailability.

I’m sure MBB expenses pet travel. Be it for emotional support or not.. It looks like Accenture has to improve their expensing/travel policy

I bought a VERY expensive flight yesterday without even considering how I could have used my miles. Turns out I could have traded my Marriott points for miles and ended up with like 50k miles for British airways. Ive never used miles so I’m not sure what this ends up being when paying with them. Anything I can do? Or just remember next time 🥴
