In EY atleast, you can block your time for 1 week after PPED approval.

So by next Monday, if the SOW doesn't get signed should my ARMs be cleared of the engagement (I am EY too- and haven't had billable work since end of June, so I am worried about utilization)

You will need to make noise if the SOW doesn't get signed. If your RMs are anything like what I see, then you will be stuck on that code forever.

I need to get something off my chest. I am in a senior role in the company, mother and extreme professional. This senior partner one days calls me comment on my dressing sense that I need to dress more professional and appropriate. I am shocked and stunned. I am in my mid 30s, mother and professional. I never ever dress inappropriately. I asked him I don't understand the context here. A guy would have never received this kind of call. He goes "yes, there are double standards in the society for a women". Are you kidding me! Oh and by the way he couldn't notice I was working until midnight everyday to make the project successful. Give me your reactions please!!:)

How do you all manage the months when you couldn't travel every week (doctor's rec) but were not yet on maternity leave? Given my industry focus and home office, I have very limited local project options. Did anyone go internal for 1-2 years and how did that play out for promotion?
