Anyone else not as conservative with their billing when it is pro bono? I’m usually very conservative with my timer, but since this isn’t billed out, sometimes I’m not as precise. Just wondering what everyone else does.

Pro Bono padding seems like a common practice based on this thread:

I missed that. Thank you!

The opposite actually. Because I’m limited in how much pro bono counts towards my bonus I often forget to log it at all 🤷‍♀️. I do enough of it that I go over the amount allowed to count towards my bonus requirement every year. If I get a call from a client and didn’t start a timer, I might entirely forget to log the call.

When is the right time to ask for a raise in salary? Nearing the end of my first year at current tech startup. We don’t have a formal process to request a merit or cost of living salary increase that I know of… there’s less then 15 people in our company. I made a big no no when joining the company and did not negotiate the salary before accepting. Should I informally chat about future compensation to my boss? He’s a pretty laid back guy and I think he may be flexible with me.
