How about we start with a 5 day work week first.

That will just lead to us working 3 day weekends. This is more of a private concept, public has a total hours problem. Metrics are already asking for an avg of 47 hours a week through out the year.

Yep, if you take all your PTO then you'd have to avg about 47 hrs a week to meet hour metrics. This also assumes you work overtime while in training.

I’m excited to get back to the 5 day work week personally.

The concept is great if the firm functions on a solid # of hours basis. The problem is we are a “work till your tasks are completed.” You will still have the same hours of tasks so you would need to work 4 10hour days to complete it plus some additional probably on Friday rather than 5 8hour days So you are not really cutting down on hours. Another issues is that when you are onsite at a client, that extra day helps in wrapping up and closing look since client is not necessarily there 10 hours a day. If it’s an occasional issue, you can do it without it being a formal policy or taking PTO if you have right permissions.

Not possible lol

AM1: Isn't that the entire point of this thread? We should work as many hours but over four days rather than five! No hit to firm revenue but we get more work-life balance.

We do 4 days a week in the summer. Its awesome

Sounds great, doesnt work.

Please elaborate

Anyone have an idea of a pair of ear muffs or equivalent exist that look decent/“professional”? My hair is decently tall and hats flatten it which looks terrible. Thanks y’all!

I bounced from consulting last year, but very much hate my current role. The company is well known and large, but not very transparent or concerned about treating employees well. I have a vacation planned for end of August, but I got an offer this week. PTO is not paid out and I can't quit and use vacation to extend my 2 week notice.

Thoughts on how to handle? Give 1 week notice. Give notice 1 week before vacation and offer to work 1 week after vacation. Don't want to lose my 7 PTO days.
