Agreed. Also hours after 8pm and on weekends. Maybe they’d think twice about whether things were actually emergencies

like

Agreed, but for hours towards my 2000 threshold. I don't care if the client is billed the normal amount, I want the firm to give me extra credit 😂

I'm on day 15 in a row of billing (will get to 19 if I am lucky enough to actually get next weekend off), so I'm a bit bitter 🙃😂

like

It’s like a punch card. 19 days in a row for a day off.

Agreed, if you already bill the minimum hours for the week. Same should apply for overtime, not just holidays.

I completely agree. Have clients in who seem to purposefully ruin holidays for made-up deadlines, and I lose so much good will with my associates. I hate it and wish there was some cost-related reason for them to think twice. (I am a junior partner I have no control over most of these client relationships, but still burn so much good will with my associates)

Hell yeah. I have a (non-U.S.) client who has contacted me every single holiday since I started working with them. It’s always like “oh, I didn’t know 4th of July was a thing. Could you just…” or “I know it’s a holiday weekend but this non-issue is urgent so I would appreciate a call at 7:30am your time on Sunday”

If I could double-bill for time spent on weekends and holidays, I’d have hit bonus target by now (probably gonna hit it in October).

Have an interesting be possible offer. The salary "might" be on the low end of my desire number, the health benefits won't start right away; takes 60 days then they begin on the first of the month following the 60 days. 401k contributions don't start until 6 months. PTO is only 10 days plus a number of company holidays.

Other than more base salary, are the things negotiable, like more PTO? What about also basking for compensation to cover Cobra payments during the transition phase?
