At least in my opinion never met a single person who billed 90 hours to a client in a week

I bill to the tenth of an hour. If I open a client email that’s a .1. It adds up Plus weekend work helps

Just a random question to people from other firms - do people think your firms’ separation/lay-off decisions were somehow understandable and somehow managed appropriately? Reading EY bowl makes me feel anxious and wonder whether people feel the same at other firms. Thank you for your input.
