No - and I've never asked anyone, and yes, I'll cheerfully take on any who suggests our people should. Call Ethics & Compliance. This IS a pretty huge violation of our code.

Never code hours to PTO if you're working. You're losing yourself and the form money. At worst you should charge BD.

You hit the project WBS for every hour you work on the project - let leadership sort out the PPAs and overages. Simple.

Btw - what *should* happen here is the business will make a decision as to where to take the hit. CCI adjustment, BD or MD&I investment etc - either way, whoever screwed up the estimating (inadvertently or deliberately) will need to own up and where the problem - not the team.

Not that simple A2. Call me when you hit manager.

Never PTO though, BD .

Happening right now to me...
