As a lawyer, this is textbook unethical billing and can get you disbarred.

Most major service providers (big4 law firms etc) do not have value bill models.

In the case of big4 where they do, it’s almost always a bad thing for them (very low margin work e.g. audits).

This tells me that neither client got 100% of your time and attention. You can split the time incurred in half and bill both.

Agree with this

Seems fair to me

What do you mean double book time? Do I work on other clients while on a call with another, sometimes. You can’t charge each of them for an hour though

Eh firms make their money by paying staff pennies to the dollar earned while demanding insane hours, when I have an opportunity to double bill my time and end the day early I take it. For me that’s during things like remote CPE though, I can’t multi task and sit in on client meetings and also do something else simultaneously. If I’m actively working on a client it has to be my focus.

Hi all, I just lost my job due to layoffs. This was my first official PM role. I have a lot of related experience but it is not formal project/program experience. Are there any courses/certifications you suggest I do while I job hunt in the PM field? I am not looking at PMP/PMI certification or a master’s or anything that time intensive or expensive. I would just like to take a few courses to boost my skills while I am not working.

I remember when I first started working on my thesis project. My adviser asked me to get some funding for it, but he didn't give me any advice about how to do that. He just told me that if I wanted money for my project, I'd have to go through some kind of committee process and submit an application for funding from them. Sure enough, after weeks of writing applications and waiting around for responses from the committee members (who were always too busy), I eventually got approved for funding!

Getting harder to resist snarky comments on over-promoted agency folks’ linkedin posts calling for emerging account leaders, culture disturbing creatives, brave clients, curious strategists and maker mindset producers.

Hi All- no question, but just sharing a (potentially very obvious) tip that has been working for my anxiety: cutting back on drinking a lot.
