How much should I charge a friend to watch 4 dogs at their home over Christmas weekend (2 nights)? The dogs don't have any special needs or medications. I've dog sat for other people in the past but always for free. I also have had dogs of my own for most of my life. I want to start charging people for my services but also want to be reasonable since this is a friend and don't plan to charge a holiday fee. We live in St. Louis. Would $40 per day/night be reasonable?
Are there any legal concerns if I want to take a vacation to BC for a week and then extend that vacation a week and work remotely from there?
What is your utilization target? Please share company, title, and YOE. Also, how do holidays and vacation play into utilization for you?
Joined Deloitte recently. PDM model.
Couple days ago found out that PTO not counted towards utilization.
I need to go to my home country and get married this December.
I don’t think I can bill more than 40 hours.
So people do not take vacation/PTO in PDM model? Is changing job the only option or there is some other way. Please advice.
Planning to tip my building doormen, but also love making holiday cookies, do you think spreading a little extra cheer is still acceptable these days, or are people hesitant about homemade foods?

I am feeling a little guilty. Here it is 5 days into vacation and I have not even opened the computer to grade / prepare school work. And here I told the 8th graders to use their week off to catch up on all the missing work! Sheeeesh!! Double sheeeesh!!!
I was supposed to go on vacation this week but a case I’m on blew up and my boss basically pretended to forget about my vacation and kept expecting me to be available this weekend/next week. I emailed him this a.m. a nice short email saying “I love this job but I do need vacation. I haven’t taken a week off since I started a year and a half ago. I’d like to reschedule for later in March, can we make it work?” He responded “sure” several hours later. I’m annoyed. Is this annoying or am I crazy?

Long holiday weekends remind me how disconnected from home-city friends consulting (travel) has made me. This is more of a negative than the long hours. Anyone else feel similarly? 😕
Finished my power day @ capital one. I was actually told from HR another manager was really impressed with me and wanted to hire me for another position. Stated I don't have to interview again (I interviewed with this person during my power day) He said he was waiting for approval from his VP. Does anyone have personal experience with a situation like this? It's the holiday season so i understand people are in and out of the office. I just haven't had a situation like this before.
Does your firm make allowances to billable hours for PTO/sick leave? Every firm I’ve been to has been “billing 9-12 hours a day until you make up the deficit.” That shit ain’t right, but curious if others have a different experience.
