same.  well, not daily.
well if I'm being honest...it's not daily, but that's the expectation
and yes another system for PTO (plus you have to update a company cal and have to update an in/out board)

I'm salaried and fill out time sheets everyday...so we can bill the clients

same.  well, not daily - i have to log my hours once a week in one system, and separately twice a month in another system, and i have to use yet a third to track PTO. 

don't nobody know my troubles but god... and two different HR dept.
What is this inefficient trickery.

Fair enough on the "we have to bill clients" for those in the MSP/legal/etc world, but what is this three-systems nonsense?

As executive management, if I work even one hour a day, I do not take PTO.  PTO for me is only when I take an entire day off, and yes I burn a lot of vacation at the end of every year.

I'll be doing one of those next Thursday, and my timesheet will reflect that.

Less then you would imagine because I'm also an "at-will" employee.  But I do have one on Thursday, which was supposed to be a full day off but I've been asked to cover a meeting before we leave, so it's a bit of a double edged sword.

agreed that it's inefficient, but such is my current life as a consultant:
  • system#1 ("log my hours once a week") is the client's internal budgeting system.  they have a budget against which my hours are drawn down.  this tells my sponsor when it's time to go get more funding to keep me around.
  • system#2 ("separately twice a month in another system") is my consulting firm's billing system.  they invoice the client twice a month.  not all our clients use this billing system.  the invoices from system#2 are fed into system#1.
  • system #3 ("yet a third to track PTO") is my consulting company's HR system that tracks how much time off i have.  with some clients i wouldn't use system#2 at all, all my time-tracking would be done in system#3 - depends on their requirements.
now you may say "this could all be done in one system" or "why don't you integrate".  answer to #1 is "we are separate companies, hence separate systems", and answer to #2 is "it's not worth the investment."  and overall, my company needs the flexibility to serve all sorts of clients - this modular approach allow us to tailor timekeeping and billing to anyone.  or so i'm told.  i dunno, i just work here.  sometimes.

Survived our second earthquake last night. Oh wait, I meant experienced.

Anyone else feel it?

guess i need to hand in my card as a mediocre white guy... and trust me i'm as mediocre and white as them come... 

but i just can't bring myself to criticize talented female athletes...  clearly i missed that day of training

anyways last time i checked scoring two goals in a game isn't "playing terribly", but the lard assed leader of mediocre white guys seems to think so.

guess i'll be content with barely existent white guy..
