Is it just me or are there entirely too many people in Business Services, specifically TC’s, who are just folks from client service that don’t want to deal with hours and travel anymore but have no formal training in the Business Services function they transition to? It seems to me very few TC’s are professionals in HR with any background, training or certifications in HR.

Get used to it. There is a plan to reduce full time BS staff and have client service staff do a tour to better understand the business on their way to partnership.

What’s a TC?

I’ve had a very different experience. Everyone I interact with in BS seems very driven, sharp and knowledgeable.

TC=HR

That seems like a tremendous waste of time for all involved. I look forward to babysitting the partner track folks while they slum it with those of us in BS.

I agree, but Tim seems to think the Firm hasn't been successful in the last 150+ years and he needs to fix it.

Questions for my fellow EAs out there:
1. How many of you travel for your job? If so, are there stipulations?
2. My team is having an 2-day offsite meeting in another city and many folks outside of our team are all traveling in for it. Some are only attending for an hour. My exec told me yesterday I couldn’t attend (after weeks of asking him), citing that we couldn’t have excessive hours of OT (maybe 4 hrs). I do not feel valued as a team member.
Should I bring it up or let it go?
