Hehehe damn it, mouse juggler got disabled

I’m on the bench 😒

Feel like everyone is working more with the WFH orders, sometime I get jealous of my colleagues who are on the bench

I just got “kicked off” a project for not being able to be available “full time” because I’m on another project with “minimal hours” and have a kid to care for during daycare closures... so yeah semi “enjoying” being minimally staffed on billable work for the last month and probably gonna get out of consulting for good after this :/

SC1, I thought you were me based on your answer! Sorry you are going through this.

Fully billable, kicked off an assessment the week the safe at home order went into effect.

Anyone here in a spiral of apathy and zero productivity? I was on the bench in consulting for three months and then exited making about twice what I feel I’m worth. Having a hard time jumping in when it feels so easy to scrape by doing very little. I maybe have one productive hour a day and I’m worried it’s going to catch up with me now, but it feels impossible to work a full day.

Partners or whomever can help me understand about billing and hours. To keep things simple, let’s say you only have one staff to work 1,700 billable hours a year on a $60k salary and you have only one job that and the rate charged to the client is $300/hour and an projected hours budget of 1,700 hours. So ideally you would have revenue of $510k. If the staff takes less time partners make less money and if they take more time partners make more money while the staff keeps the same salary?

Im a third year associate and I’m frequently asked to give presentations (on new case law, legislation, ect.) during a weekly meeting for my section. There’s a first year associate and a law clerk in my section who are never asked to present. Should I push back on this? Would it look bad if I delegate some of the work to the others? I spend a lot of non billable time prepping for these presentations...it seems unfair that I’m the only one who has to do them.
