How can I set firmer boundaries/expectations so that my CDs and PMs respect my time more? Ex. late vague feedback + general project mis-management = consistent work (like this one) over weekends

Best way to avoid working on weekends is to say you’ve: “Got personal family commitments and you can’t work. I’m afraid it’ll have to wait until next week. Sorry.” I’m frankly fed up of this expectation that weekends are up for grabs. I get paid to work 5 days a week, so that’s all I do. And that’s all my team do because I tell them to respond in exactly the same way. Mis-management and general incompetence is their problem, not yours.

“I’m sorry, I have personal plans this weekend and can’t work. I could clear my Monday to prioritize this? “

It is called Labor Day after all.

I ended up quitting my last job because of it, some people were even expected to be online during their vacation while HR keept saying that’s a no no and should be brought up to them. At the end nothing changed, and the 55hr work week is never worth it.

And, if it’s not urgent I would simply not reply until the next morning or business day.
