Isn't your schedule in client sow?

First talk to your ACN leadership. Be prepared for your client to not accept you working from home on Fridays. I'm local and both my client and leadership (who I also don't see) expect me to be on-site.

Why work at home if it's local? Fridays at the client site are great - your clients will be in a good mood and all the other consultants will have flown away for the week.

Are there any firms out there that actually let you take all your PTO? I hate that we have to make up our PTO to meet utilization targets. Been on a capped 40-hour project for the last two years and it’s had a terrible effect on my utilization. Plus, any firms that don’t require more working for free (like all of our BS firm contributions here at D)?
