When you're the only one in your Lync contacts still online at 9PM the night before a holiday. Thanks, guys.
Can we bring extra guest to the holiday party? How does that work? Is pwC strict on the guest list?
My former PM actually told me he rolled off my team because I wouldn't reschedule my PTO. I had this PTO scheduled since June. Another person took 3 weeks of PTO and she was retained. Unethical?
PTO Tip: Take PTO the last 2 weeks of November and December. Also take the1st week of January. Unlikely you get picked up the first weeks of December and holidays aren't PTO days #thetwoforonespecial
Toughest Consulting Break-Up: Informing your hotel front desk and coffee barista that today is the last day. Holiday Roll Offs.
Travel day 🙌🏼 but still another 2 cities before Holiday PTO that was suppose to start the 14th!
Absolutely dreading a meeting this afternoon. Holiday break and this app are keeping me sane.
The crushing despair upon learning last minute that you have to be at the client site for kickoff on Monday when you were planning to be on holiday. So much for my tan.
Definitely checked this app less often since my PTO started a few days ago, but Happy Holidays and Very Merry Christmas fellow consultants!
What's the longest you've sat on the bench? For me it was almost 3 months and I got promoted that year. I don't have a need to ever use my vacation days....
Just rolled out of bed and found out that people actually work today. Wasn't today a holiday? 🤔 *rolls back into bed*
I don't understand how my staff is on PTO while I have 60 hours on my schedule. #whoapprovedthisshit

PwC 🐠, how easy is it to relocate between offices to another city? What’s the process? Any chance they wouldn’t let me?
Strategy consultants: best sources to prep for mental math during interview process? Tips/shortcuts? Particularly, how do you divide 300 million by 50 thousand the fastest way in your head? 🙈
My OOO email message starting Monday: I will be out of the office from 9/21/15 until 9/28/15. If this is an emergency, tough luck.

What does your religion or culture teach about the afterlife? Things like, are there spirits? Do you pray for them? Should we/should we not communicate with them?

Serious question: I’m 27, GF is 24. Dating for 3 years. I’m ready to take the next step (move in together, engagement, etc.) in the near future (1-2 years) but she told me she’s not. I’m confused.
Anyone here from Chicago Deloitte HC? Any thoughts on culture, project type, etc. would be much appreciated.

I am thinking about relocating to another state to avoid taxes because I want to sell my condo (primary residence) that I’ve owned for less than a year. Has anyone ever relocated to avoid taxes or know of any other way to avoid short term capital gain taxes on a home sale?
What Tier (example: NYC - T1) or COL (example: NYC - high cost of living) would Orlando, FL fall under. I feel like even though it’s in FL it’s a Tier 2 city and MCOL… just curious on how people view it
Hi all, nearly 4 YOE in consulting and desperate to move into product management. Any tips on how to make it happen? Have done a bit of PM on one engagement
Anyone else hearing an echoey noise when someone speaks in a call who is using AirPods connected to a windows PC? Couple of colleagues (including myself) use AirPods during our calls but have noticed the echo being more pronounced as of recently. Not sure if it’s amplifying ambient noises or just a software/hardware issue. Want to see if this is an isolated issue or if someone has similar experiences and/or has found a solution!
Recently, I got an offer from BCG Platinion, Nordic office and was wondering whether it is a good option. I asked their manager in Nordic office whether consultants at Platinion will be treated as second-class, he said that it was more frequently happening in Germany and much better in Nordic countries. They usually work with BCG classic together. As the team in Nordic countries is quite small and lack of consultants, he doesn't feel like being mistreated. Any insights on Plation in Nordics?
