I’m a Junior corporate associate…just started a few weeks ago. I know my biggest value is in being available. Am I actually expected to be checking emails and working at 9:30 pm, or if something is given to me, can I respond in the morning?
I want to set proper boundaries but I don’t want to be the only one not pulling my weight.

For anyone debating whether to go in house, I recently went in house, and the mental health benefit of not having to worry about billable hours is completely worth the switch. It's great not having to worry about catching up on hours when I'm out for a doctor's appointment, vacation, etc. It's more of a mental health relief than I guessed it would be.

How do you handle feeling bad for inconveniencing juniors? I’m a third year and got tasked at 7 PM last night (Saturday) with handling an emergency, which included staffing first years. I emailed all first years and asked for help if they were available. None of them were free, so I did it myself. It was a very late night and I’m frustrated at the partner for making me staff them when I have no authority. And at myself for being passive in my email asking for help.

But yet, we make good money and are in a well-established and trusted profession, so I feel like a whiner. Thx for listening
