When you're the only one in your Lync contacts still online at 9PM the night before a holiday. Thanks, guys.
My former PM actually told me he rolled off my team because I wouldn't reschedule my PTO. I had this PTO scheduled since June. Another person took 3 weeks of PTO and she was retained. Unethical?
When you send an email to your MD and SM that you are on PTO for the rest of the week and 3 hours later you get an email to participate in Orals .... On Monday. Hahahahahaha PTO
PTO finally starting!
Cheesy client holiday t-shirt reads, "Now watch me sip...on chardon-nay-nay." Welcome to the holidays folks 😐🔫
PTO should stand for "Potty Time Out" because I now have to secure bathroom breaks with my Outlook calendar.
Absolutely dreading a meeting this afternoon. Holiday break and this app are keeping me sane.
Just got a gift from a co worker. Guess I'll make that my holiday bonus by a degree of separation. Thanks Accenture.
Supposed to be on vacation in South America, but sitting in my hotel room writing proposals for a partner who is likely sippin margaritas #thisiswhyimstillsingle
What's the longest you've sat on the bench? For me it was almost 3 months and I got promoted that year. I don't have a need to ever use my vacation days....
Anyone else decide to give up PTO to work on interesting proposal work for the next two weeks, or is that just me?
Thoughts on hitting utilization targets? Our Consultant target is 90% but PTO available accounts for 10% of the year and is not subtracted from the available hours pool of the equation 😪
Returning from 2 weeks PTO and questioning every life decision that has led me to where I am today
Do you ever work while on vacation in order to not have to take the actual days off to maximize your PTO?
When you have to take a client call from your vacation because the client knows the Sr. Mgr has no clue what is going on.

I was talking to a first year at a different consulting firm who mentioned that even as a first year, he gets plenty of project staffing options. Is this the norm? I got pigeonholed early
It took a semester in college to become a domain expert on a topic. It takes 4 weeks here.
So I find out uber is not in San Antonio anymore. #%^ Then when I get a cab the guy is chomping on his whopper while crossing lanes! Can't make this stuff up.
When you realize half this job is swatting sh.. out of the way so you can focus on the stuff that actually moves the needle for the client.
When I get invited to Thursday happy hours I tell people I'm busy. I'm really just crashing on my couch and ordering takeout from my favorite thai spot.
Funny how some firms have analysts at entry level that then get promoted to consultants, and others vice-versa. Wonder if it affects exit-opportunities at all 😛
When your hotel's wifi is so unreliable that you give up connecting and use your phone as a hotspot... 😡
What certifications/professional designations (NOT graduate degrees and not CPA) are most valuable for advancement at your firm?
Just hit lifetime Gold on SPG. I'm either gonna be lifetime Rich or lifetime Regretful now. Which do y'all think it's gonna be?
