Mine was 56 hours straight with no break—and the partner was more than a jerk when I was saying no more at the 30 hour point.

And it is one reason (of so many reasons) why this job can suck so much! At least I got a good bonus...

Was invited to apply for a lateral in another group at my company - transactional (I’m in lit now). I have a lot of experience in what I do now and am getting good development opportunities within my group. However, I’ve been passed over for a deserved promotion 3 times and am doing work two salary bands above where I am now.
