Are you serious? Did it explicitly say no guests? If that happens for our DC party, I would think at least half of the employees wouldn't bother coming at all. I guess that's a way to save a relatively tiny sum while making a big statement about firm leadership.

I sympathize, but it's better to be at the party alone than not be there because you were laid off so that they could pay for +1s! #mylife

I think Deloitte has been that way from what I've been told

That's a shame, let's all hope for a better year next year.

Wow, was bonkers 2 years ago. Top shelf booze and full dinner. #pwcisstruggling

2 years ago was Cipriani downtown (worst service ever - more coat check ppl than bartenders), then Marriott marquis, now Metropolitan Pavillion

Sometimes it has to do with venue size. But probably not

How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.

Imagine for a moment that all strategic consulting firms in the region would have consultants work no later than 9pm. Do you think the quality of the output would decrease?
