Does anyone else feel like they’re always busy but not billing nearly as much as they should be? I have been billing like 45 hours a week but feel overwhelmed trying to balance work, seeing my friends/family/boyfriend, and chores/sleep. Anyone else in the same boat?

45 charged hours is like 55-70 actual hours

^ this :/

There is a certain point in which a sustained period of time even at 45 hours feels challenging to get everything done. I feel like busy seasons and the associated hours it was known that those other things just weren’t going to happen, but we needed some kind of offset to allow us to get back to those things. I feel like the demand to just always do as much work as possible is always there year round now. I don’t even have kids or pets or anything and often feel like I’m failing at keeping the house clean, the lawn mowed, paying bills on time, getting enough sleep, etc

What is your non billable time? Do you feel pressured to work those hours when work comes in, which might put more hours at night vs during the normal 9-5?

Yes

Same!

Hello fishes,

I have 6 and half YOE in front end development. (angular and hybrid applications). I joined my current organization ( product based) in Feb for 24LPA. The work here is too stressful and there is absolutely zero WLB. So I decided to start looking out again. However I am not getting good interview calls. Are most companies not hiring now ? Or could it because my CTC is too high ?
