Honestly, for those of us that who work 70-80 hours a week. Is that really necessary? How much of that is really needed vs. due to inefficiency, bad planning, lack of the alignment of skill sets in terms of staffing, or most importantly bad culture and working style?

And more importantly...Wtf are you doing for those 10+hr days? Making slides???

Could also be having an entire army sitting on a call trying to make two slides for 2 hours! Honestly some of the working style and culture have gotten so bad lately!

My first job out of college (financial services world) our late nights were due to an imbalance in workload at year end, so like 70% of our work was packed into 4 months. At D, 90% of my crazy hour weeks were due to mismanagement of deadlines / expectations by my team. Clients are humans - they’re not going to kill themselves if they get a deliverable 8 hours - 1 day later than planned.

It’s definitely not necessary. I’ve been trying to cut back my hours which has been fine for the most part except a lot of work I could have gotten done in an 8 hour day isn’t because I’m waiting around for other people (who are also working those 70-80 hour weeks)

Some teams just make slides for no good reason.
