This holiday party sucks
When you screw yourself over by volunteering for +1s and end up having to work during PTO.
Supposed to be on vacation in South America, but sitting in my hotel room writing proposals for a partner who is likely sippin margaritas #thisiswhyimstillsingle
Best Marriott Resort for vacation. (Have about 500k in points, looking for Caribbean, upscale, classy)
I think Canvas took the holiday today
Got to ask, do any of you who travel, are you required to stay on site on a friday if the client is off on monday due to a holiday?
PTO doesn't come soon enough #tootired
Had to take PTO today due to a debilitating case of March madness. Anyone else at the bar right now?
When you look back at your time sheet and see a 40 hour week and wonder "what was that week" to open it and realize that was the week you took PTO for the flu. 65 hour weeks 😭
Long tiring day. I get a vodka and coke and the AA airhostess goes, "Are you on a holiday?" I don't even feel like taking one.
Getting emails from India resources regarding "emergency PTO with no access to email" after Thursday's Indian holiday. So deliverables due at noon today are going to do themselves! #thanksfornothing
I was wondering why the parking lot was so empty today; and then I remembered, apparently it's a holiday.
Love having the SO in my project city. Feels like a vacation, since I haven't actually spent any time exploring since I've been here.
Getting urgent emails at 7pm on a Fri before a holiday weekend sucks. But not so bad since I'm pretending to be offline.
TFW when you finally meet the other executive suite inhabitant while on a quick holiday in Bali - another 23 year old consultant that also got upgraded. I salute you, fair lady. 👊🏾

Thinking about quitting without another job lined up to do small contracts for peanuts just for the sake of my sanity. Please talk me out of it.
Do you tip on top of the pre-fixed gratuity that some places have (eg 20% included in the bill)?
Anyone here from a product talent model? Have an opportunity for switchover from traditional talent model and seeking perspectives if this is a right move. Please DM me if you are open for a chat.
Possibility of moving to EY-P for Management Consulting from EY Tech Consulting? Not from a target Ivy school or anything however More on the basis of managing multiple family businesses (20mil+ in hotels & franchise restaurants) since the age of 16, everything from internal mgmt to external strategic planning for future business propositions, etc. Strong managerial background from experience in that sense, stuff college could never have taught me. Would mgmt consulting be a good fit?
What are the best shows on Netflix to binge watch? Trying to pretend like it’s a Friday night not Sunday with only a few hours left before the work week starts
Help me understand Data Warehousing. If I’m taking a bunch of data from a bunch of sources, cleaning/transforming it, and putting it in a single, aggregated table (or series of tables) for multiple people to draw from, is that a data warehouse?
My lawn gets very muddy at the slightest hint of rain. Grass doesn’t seem very healthy either. Anyone know how to remedy this? Looking into aeration but not sure if that would be enough.
i'm about to start a consulting job with pretty good pay but (i anticipate) there will be pretty poor work-life balance. i don't want it to be like this for more than 5 years; is this realistic? i.e., does it ever get better later, or is the consultant life one constantly encumbered with work?
Just got invited to a back to back interview and case study with 2 days notice at Boston Consulting Group. How are they doing virtual case studies? screen share with excel, pen and paper only, a combination of the two, etc?
