What is time off? I'm joking. We're actually fairly organized about it.

If you're organized about it, it's fine. It's hard with smaller teams because of overlaps etc but we do manage

We are such a small team, taking time off is tough. I wish it was different.

It's tough, I haven't gotten any time off since starting a year ago

You mean you didn’t ask for time off, or your manager didn’t approve it?

Just had a very uncomfortable conversation with a partner. I have some time off booked to go to my brother’s wedding (I’m the best man). We were chatting and I mentioned that my brother’s future husband is so nice and really a great guy, and we already consider him a member of our family. Partner’s tone immediately shifts and as we’re ending the call he says, “Okay, enjoy the time with your family at the civil ceremony.” Like… girl you live in California, you cannot be this backward.

I averaged 250+ billables for Q1. Took a vacation in April and since being back, work has been pretty chill (~35/week) and I havent taken any new work. However, I am finding myself not very productive and the smallest things are taking me way longer than they should. Cant get myself to do these things but then that makes me anxious. Feeling stuck. Has anyone else experienced a similar situation and what did you do? I’m a junior associate in corporate.

Does Bain handle projects in those areas?
Is Riyadh that bad?
