Only two types of people carry the orange and gray PwC bags: new associates and partners. I can’t explain the latter.

I think when you reach a certain age / level you stop caring about stupid things like how cool your bag is and you’re just like yeah this free bag does the job, my expertise speaks for itself and that’s what matters

My dad was a partner at pwc once a upon a time, and he used to only drink the free coffee from the pwc machines... when I asked him why doesn't he buy coffee.. he said it was the same thing, but took quarter of the time and that people are wasting their little money they have on something that is free. Needless to say, I still buy my coffees because I like the taste of good coffee - but I think as p1 said, the older you get, the less you give a fuck about what's trendy...and you go with what's the most practical/ efficient.

@A1, I am ready to mingle 😘

Can someone take a picture of this damn bag that I keep hearing about in other posts?

I just don’t like that it’s too heavy! Heavier than my laptop.

I don’t remember it being heavy but I got rid of mine shortly after joining. I got a cool and super professional bag and then I realized it was stupid after a few years and I bought a GR1 backpack. Not the prettiest bag but I take it mountain biking, hiking, use it as a weekend bag for short trips out of town, and every day in the office. At some point utility just takes a front seat to fashion and you roll your eyes at the dudes who dress up for each other
