Just remember that they watch everything you do. That's a motivating factor for me 100%. Plus, there is the integrity piece. Doing what you should do when no one is watching (even though they 100% are tracking your every movements).

Remember: managers know all and see all

Junior working with ex v5 senior in M&A. He consistently asks me to turn major deliverables at the worst hours, think 10 pm Friday/Sat/Sun night “tonight” or “by tomorrow morning” even when there is no closing date in sight. When I push back he says my behavior is unacceptable. The times when I have been able to actually meet his expectations and give him the deliverable for review, he will get back to me with comments at least a week later. Sick of these false deadlines. Help
