OP must be an M or above and not in client chargeable role. it’s normal at this level to support work while on PTO. Forced PTO happens for people in between projects as there is nothing for them to work on when office itself is closed and no training etc happening. Op could charge to BD but he chose PTO to increase his chargeability .

I'm "M and above" but in client chargeable role. Is it normal? No. Why trying to justify this complete sh*t? MDs are partner in crime of this way of working. HR only thinks about stupid topics and gender metrics. Maybe that's why ACN loses its best talent on the road.

Is it just me, or has a tech boom sucked a large amount of top resources away from consulting, leaving pretty much every firm scrambling for talent? Perhaps coupled with some downsizing during COVID has made this even more material.
