Hi 🐠, need some advice. Was told by my manager that time doing research (for info related to my client) is not client billable and has to be charged to the overhead code. This strikes me as fundamentally wrong, esp bc this is a flat rate project so the hours will just affect my utilization / internal metrics, not how much the client is billed. I asked for a non-billable code that counts towards utilization but was told my utilization is fine even though I’d be billing <40hrs & to use OH code

This may be just a naive/dumb question, but how do you relax when you’ve got a really stressful file? I’m a junior and I’ve been putting in ~10ish billable hours a day recently, which is more than I’m used to. The evenings (post-8pm) are generally my time to decompress - read a book, watch dumb tv, whatever - but it’s been all work lately until 10 or 11pm and I struggle to go straight from work to bed. Any insight on what everyone else does?

Inspired by nanny posts. I have a toddler and a 4 month old. My nanny basically holds the baby all time and toddler is almost entertaining himself. She reads a book here and there, puts snack out for him - that’s it. My toddler doesn’t do screen time but when I see in the nanny cam he looks sad and zoned out, doesn’t speak a word. He is an extremely active kid and runs around when we were there or with the sitter we had during summer ( I was on ML with the baby ). She has 20 Plus experience
