By close of eyes? I have never heard that given as a deadline.

I hadn’t either until I heard that from my mom the other day. I thought she was joking and she’s like no, there’s EOD and by close of eyes. 🙄😱 An expectation like that seems more of a bullying tactic from those who cannot get their work done within a normal workday timeframe.

Agreed! I’m honestly at the point that if a client asks for something on a rush I almost always give some light pushback and explain our standard operating procedures. If they want quality they can wait an extra day.

The doors of the company won’t close if someone needs a few more hours.

Hi there - my company is returning to office next month. Hybrid to begin before they ramp up to 5 days back in office by end of year. I think the fact they want to bring us back 5 days is disrespectful considering how much work we’ve put in remotely over the last year. Not to mention productivity studies say people who WFH (and have no kids) are substantially more productive. All that being said, does anyone work at a FinTech/Tech company whose RTTO policy is more flexible? Looking to leave

How does your firm calculate utilization? My firm’s billable requirement is 1850, but our utilization percentage is calculated based on 40 hours billed per week (2080/year). Pro bono work counts towards billable requirement , but isn’t included in our utilization numbers. This seems out of sorts… Yearly requirement is fine, but it just feels like the numbers don’t match up. I don’t feel like my utilization expectations/work are being accurately accounted for.

Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations. Ask questions here, in this safe space.
