Don’t take PTO, just leave at lunch every Friday! I’ve done my 40 hours by Thursday usually so it’s guilt free!

100% agree

It is funny how the only way to get a guilt-free day off is if you are sick or if you kid is sick and you have to stay home. :)

It gets tougher when you hit SM and Director levels

I probably work MAYBE 2 to 3 hours EVERY Friday. It’s work from home mostly, and I don’t take PTO. #consultingconfessions
