on PTO today. ate a gummy after lunch. remembered right after it kicked in that i had a client presentation in 15 minutes. with the cmo 🙃
Can someone from Deloitte help me to know exactly how many hours I must work in a year to achieve exactly 95 percent utilization? I'm trying to understand the difference between holidays vs. PTO hours
Met this guy 4 weeks ago. He lives 4 hours away and has already been down to see me twice and stayed at the hotel for 2 nights each time. Pays for every date even though I offer to pay. He is awesome and I really like him! However, he was traveling for work last week so our communication went from checking in everyday to one 15 min call middle of the week. He joined this job during COVID so first time meeting his team.. he said they were out past 1am every night. Ummm? (Contd)
Anybody ever been so sick (e.g., food poisoning/stomach flew) you couldn't make your flight to you client?
I needed to find the appropriate bowl to brag. Not sure if this is the place, so forgive me if it is inappropriate. My 11th grade son was just waitlisted for a five day summer camp at his dream college: The United States Coast Guard Academy Even being waitlisted is a big accomplishment. I am so proud of him. If he doesn’t get invited to the summer camp, the Academy is suggesting a few other options, including an overnight stay this fall.
American Airlines: Group 4 ready to board.
If the flight you are on hasn't started deplaning when boarding is scheduled to start, can you still be on-time?
delta 7pm flight delayed til 8:45am close to 14 hour delay due to weather plus pilot timed out. can I ask delta for rebursements of hotel and transportation?
I realize I'm intolerant of other countries whenever I need to scroll to find "United States" in a webform.
If you achieve new platinum elite status on Marriott this week, how long does that last for?
Any way to quickly get to Silver Medallion status on Delta if I’ve used a status match within the past 3 years? Can I buy MQMs?

Consultants in their respective federal practices - are you on extended holiday? Or are there still projects that are actively being worked on
Anyone travel to Cabo recently? Going next week and curious about how they're handling Covid. Will be staying at the hotel the whole time, so not worried about venturing out
Took PTO to make it a four day weekend...first few hours back today and I already feel stressed out, anxious and like I want to quit. Burn out or just advertising?
Wife is 5mo pregnant. Is it a legit reason to turn down work travel? I have some discretion over whether I travel or not
Account/Client Services peeps—what do you love the most about your job? What do you dislike? Just curious.
How do you (personally) weigh compensation vs. factors like good culture/team/interesting work? I am underpaid but like everything else about my job. Is this just a nagging feeling I need to dispel?
Best exit opp you've seen a partner take ?
I really just want a 9-6 job. What’s stopping is my stupid af ego and the “promise” of better exit opportunities that comes with 1 more year.
Haven’t done a case interview in years. Are Case in Point / Victor Cheng still the go-tos? Any other good (preferably online or free) resources?
I need a new car and still waiting on the compensation damage (personal injury). Thinking about getting a lease to finance it and then pay it off once I receive the money. Any cons to this? I don’t want to put my savings into a car. Thank you!

Anyone witness slackers who got into companies you have no idea how? Had a coworker who does jack chit at work besides chatting on Facebook yet lands at a faang company? I guess if he brings the same work ethic he will be spit out for sure. Or maybe he just had no interest in doing project work.
Hi! I want to exit out of consulting with almost 4 years under my belt. I’m mainly looking for product manager roles but debating going into SWE (after studying). I’ve applied to so many roles externally but rarely get call backs. How can I increase the number of interviews I’m getting or be seen as a competitive applicant?
How difficult it is to actually switch from pre-sales to product management ? I am a MBA graduate who is currently working in business development at a services firm. I actually got interested in PM about a year back and from then I have been working on to improve my skill set for PM role. But, whenever I discuss this with people at my job they do make me feel like this direct job transition would be really difficult/almost impossible.
Unsure where to go post MBA graduation with offers to PwC (DDV), KPMG (Strategy), and ACN (Finance & Risk). Where would you go and why?
Working til 11pm....not for the client but for my wife (her resume) who’s applying for a new job. Selfless I know. Never mind that she’ll double her salary and open up a path to get out of the grind.
Are there any good ways to make money outside of a typical career job? I’ve tried audit and currently in advisory. The job just makes me depressed, and I’m thinking the accounting space just isn’t for me. My husband works, so I don’t have to worry with medical benefits etc if I quit. We don’t have kids yet so I need something to keep me busy, and I would like to still have an income and make decent money. Any ideas?
Any tips/ pointers for interview with Facebook tomorrow? 4 hours with 5 people. Non IT engineering role.
How do I get a sick leave for the next 2 weeks? Any ideas? Going through something at the moment. Not physically sick though
Amazon product manager ML interview coming. Any suggestions on ML/AI tech questions for loop interviews ?
