As a lower end dev, only dev 1 or 2, I feel that my work life balance is very good. As you progress up the corporate ladder will this grow to be worse and worse? It seems like my manager is working about 50hrs per week

Yeah, I believe that's the usual trend, but at some point, you reach a level at which most of your job becomes "strategizing," and "big picture" planning so you just delegate all the work to underlings and end up working less for more.

Yeah that’s true. The higher ups on my team still do a lot of programming but also they’re 5x as fast as me because of the years of experience

I’ve been getting invaluable experience at a boutique litigation firm. The only things is, the firm hasn’t evolved with work culture. The official policy is that everyone WFH one day each week with no choice of which day. Sometimes I’ll work from home more than one day a week and when I do, I feel paranoid because when I’m in the office, the partners will “walk the halls.” I would appreciate more flexibility and have a big law interview scheduled. Is this worth leaving? Btw, I’m a first year.
