Unless the SOW specifically mentions the holiday, you should work

I tell my teams it’s a good day take PTO. But if people choose to work we work from home/don’t travel and line up tasks to complete that don’t require client interaction. Usually ends up being a slower day.

Yup U work

Junior partner at a specialist boutique consulting firm (compete w/ MBB primarily in our verticals) with prior experience in PE on both deals and ops side, and corp dev. My career here is pretty stable and money is good enough without killing myself (500k+ cash) but I miss being an investor vs an advisor. Is there any path back to GE/PE at this stage? My gut says no unless it's a firm where I have a client relationship and I get lucky but hard to broach the subject given dynamics. Any advice?
