You’re pretty much the scum of the industry if you make client strategic decisions based on who sent you a gift card for Christmas. Plus a lot of that shit is illegal if you accept gifts over a certain amount.

Anyone have managers / leadership (non consulting) who seems disengaged? We all hate micro managers, but on the other side of the spectrum my manager signs on at 10am, doesn’t respond to requests for input, takes a ton of PTO yet still is angry that my project is on fire and gives me tons of extra work, it makes me feel very demotivated - why should I kill myself and work hard if they don’t give a shit, just makes me feel dumb for putting in effort.

Lateraled to a new firm ~2 months ago and have a planned vacation coming up in 1 month (this was planned way before the move, even before I had considered interviewing). Recruiting and the head of my practice group gave me the OK on the vacation before I joined, but I’m still stressed about telling people I’m about to go on vacation as a new joiner to the firm. Words of advice/good vibes/etc., all greatly appreciated.

Ladies how do you manage your relationship when your spouse holds you to what you promised you would do before you got married but then you realize you can’t do it. I had promised my husband I would fast with him for an entire day on a specific religious holiday, but when I did for the first time I had stomach pains, headache, and nausea. I told him I can’t do it for that long again but he said “we’ll see, you just need to push through”.

So I just wrapped up an audit which pretty much brought an end to my busy season but now I have no work to do. I’ve reached out to my PML, my EM and other managers for work but they have nothing for me and have encouraged me to take PTO. I was planning on using my pto for later in March though so I don’t wanna use it just because I have no work. Any advice on what I should do?
