At what point in the day do you consider it “after hours” and don’t feel pressured to work/look at emails?

Whenever I log off for the day. If it’s 5:30, so be it. If I respond after that, no one is going to respond to me until the morning anyways. That way it’s flexible when I’m on a deadline and when I’m not. When I step away from my desk for the night, I’m off the clock. Email and all.

I don’t feel pressured to respond to anything other than direct msgs from my boss after 6. I consider “after hours” as about 20 minutes after my last call wraps (global so we take evening or morning calls several days a week) I usually wrap up early, around 4.30 or 5, on night call days — or take a couple hours midday for life stuff

I usually stop looking at 7. If it’s that important someone will text me.

Whenever I decide to close my laptop. Lots of performative messages get sent after hours by insecure people. Especially people who fell into their lofty titles and are constantly trying to make up for that fact by 'PRing' themselves late at night/while they're on annual leave, because they spent all day talking about their new dog/cat/lizard rather than doing actual work. So tacky. If you know you're done for the day dont let people less knowledge than you about your job worry you if you know you're all good and done everything you needed to.

6. But I pretty much look at slack all night randomly on my phone if something pops up. I won’t necessarily answer unless it’s important.

How do people in industry get promoted so fast? I have friends at fortune 500s who get promoted once a year or even less. Even my younger cousin just graduated last year, and at 8 months got promoted to “customer success manager” whereas in Big 4 I’ll be in my late 20s by manager

Current comp is $140k in Texas, which is just salary and bonus. Have offer for $200k in California, which includes base, bonus and RSUs for large tech company.

Obviously risk with that assumption, but curious how others approach these decisions in change in comp structure.
