I just moved to industry from PA and it feels great not having to deal with timesheets.... no budgets/eating time. Plus not working on the weekends, login off at 5 on Fridays. I’m not going back to PA ever

I submit mine on Friday if it’s a good week. Usually I wait until Sunday afternoon.

funny

Some firms have a Sunday afternoon deadline for time submission

Yea for me that is retirement.

There is NO way I'd last that long in PA lol
