By close of eyes is not a reasonable time for any deliverable to be due. You work from home not 24/7. Let’s normalize standard working hours; if work isn’t done within eight to nine hours in day then it’s time for evaluate systems, if all those Zoom calls were necessary and staff utilization.

Hi, I work for a company which has been spun off and sold to a new company a few months back. Recently, a member of my team and myself, accidentally found the base and retention bonus for most people in the company.
