PTO Dilemma: I have over 100 hours of PTO remaining from hours carried over from last year that must be used before 12/31. I scheduled out days to use the hours. However, when I put my scheduled PTO in the Utilization Tracker, and include the Thanksgiving holiday and the Collective Disconnect days, I end up below my utilization target. How is that possible? Is it me or is there really something wrong with how utilization is calculated?-

Happy Holidays Everyone!
For those that got COVID, how much time off did you take from work to fully recover? I still have it and took 5 days but not sure if I take more than that is pushing it. I can WFH and do work but I’m scared if I go back to the grind of stressful work and long hours it’ll delay my recovery.
Who has MLK off as a firm holiday?
Got called three times by an Engagement Manager today. Is it wrong that I didn't answer because I'm enjoying my holiday. Should I call her back?

Is anyone at EY actually happy with the PTO change? (Especially since they will not be paying out accrued PTO prior to the change. Historically other transitioning firms at least had the decency to do this).

What should the next steps be in order to get out of this and get a bump? Is 2 months to start looking for a new job discouraged? The probation period hasnt ended yet either

Partners, how do you take the guess work out of YoY sales + revenue growth to the firm? How do you drive a book of business consistently? What keeps you sharp? How do you elevate yourself to C-Suite?
Partners - could you provide some insight how much big 4 partners make? Whether you're in big 4 or not - pretty sure you'd have an idea. Maybe give some kind of a range of what new partners earn ? Just want to know if it's worth it getting to the top.
Also would love to hear your opinion if years of slogging it upward is actually worth it. Do you feel partnership is everything you thought it would be ? (Prestige, money, status, etc)?
Thanks in advance !
If you are a partner 3 years in, how complicated is it to resolve the equity and move to another firm?
Is being located in a tier 2 city (tiny buyer pool) always going to feel like a handicap? Keen to hear from partners who have been successful in a similar situation and guiding principles that helped👍
I’ve recently left the world of consulting and joined a tech startup and my role is to build partnerships with consulting companies and SIs. My working hypothesis is that referral bonuses won’t be enough of an incentive in formalizing a partnership with the likes of Deloitte Digital. You all make your money on implementation but our product is pretty simple right now and easy to implement. How else can startups create relationships with you? We want referrals & for you tell clients about us.
Just have to say Partner Bowl, I love the Buggs Bunny picture for the bowl. It perfectly encapsulates partnership from a plebes point of view. 😂
Do you regret following the partner path vs. stepping out of consulting world to join a startup or something?
I recently joined a niche function in an industry role, and think it could translate to consulting well. What are the things you (partners or equivalent) would want to know before pushing to build a new (sub-)practice area?

Job sharing in professional services is becoming more common. Would it make sense to offer job sharing at the partner level? Benefits a) employee retention (including women 30+ that often choose family over Partner track), b) more available Partner spots which increases retention, c) work life balance, d) 2 vs 1 partner tapping into their network to sell, e) 50% comp but ideally 6 months off. Why wouldn’t it work? Trying to hear different perspectives for and against partner job sharing?
New to Fishbowl?

In the winter I get a monthly facial, massage or acupuncture.
I also spend an extra 15-20 min on skin care & hair care (hair mask in the shower, treatment on my ends, Gua sha routine for puffiness, etc)
I also prioritize going to workout classes more in the winter because it helps boost my endorphins and it’s a good stress relief
You work at fishbowl?
At least OP is honest.
I’ve always been of the opinion that 20% of the threads on this site were intentionally seeded by Fishbowl so as to keep the buzz going and generate traffic.

Acupuncture. Have tried a couple of 30 minute sessions - just for relaxation and better sleep and it has done wonders.
