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

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.

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?-

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.

We want referrals & for you tell clients about us.

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?
