Just found out my firm bases bonuses on billed out hours rather than actual billed hours. Any work a partner cuts before the bill is sent to the client or any non billable work does not count for the bonus. I am not happy. Is this enough to move firms over? This isn’t standard practice as far as I know?

I freelance and charge per hour. My client is requesting that I travel to shoot a video. How do I charge for this? Do a charge for 24 hours per day or just for time working? This is my first time and I would like to know how freelancers typically charge for projects that include travel and overnight stay. Help 😅

Would you rather stay in a niche that you’ve been doing well in, but you happen to find not too interesting, or try new areas and risk not doing as well? Ive been in pharma analytics for the last 4 years, receive good client feedback, good raises / promotion and have learned a lot. But I’m not sure if I want to continue in pharma long term.
