Hi ladies. I work in IT consulting and we don’t typically have to put notes in for billable hours, but a few weeks ago my boss asked me to start entering notes, about what exactly I was working on for client A,B,and C. I just said sure and didn’t ask why. I found out today from other colleagues that no one else was asked to enter notes in for their time. What’s a good way to ask my boss why the new change? I’d at least like to know if I did something wrong so I can improve.

I've noticed this when I start charging too many hours. They love to live by the charge what you work but oh if it's over 8 hours, can you break down the hours and tell me what you were working on? It might be some of this

Do you feel like you can ask your manager why they are having you do this? It might be uncomfortable to talk about but better to feel discomfort for a few minutes than to feel anxious for weeks ans months

I get so annoyed when partners keep assigning me non-billable work to do and then I get scolded because of my billable hours… I’m still doing my job when I’m doing “non-billable” work I shouldn’t be penalized at the end of the year for being a junior associate who can’t say no to people.

I’m a newer attorney with not a ton of experience yet. A pro to the job in my mind is that the scope of work isn’t too large so I could get good/comfortable at the work hopefully pretty quickly. Pros and cons? Thanks!
