Lol just take your mobile with you and you can go wherever. Go into the office a day a week for optics

You can't. Your availability becomes public don't it? People will find out you are available. Always end up a list somewhere.

Just rolled off an engagement where I worked 3 weeks of 80s, with a month of 60s before that. Now this new job I’m on is looking like it’ll be 60-80 for the next month too and I’m having a hard time focusing. Anyone else deal with this? What’s your strategy for staying productive. Feel like I’m dragging the new team down.

Seems like a lot of questions on partner comp and net worth. Here is the rule of thumb: 1) Big 4 partners make $600K to $1.5m based on seniority and practice. 2) MBB partners make $1m -3m based on seniority Typically your expenses are between $100-300k. Add Taxes to it, that’s the amount you add every year. About 6-10% return yearly on the savings. So net worth of partners are probably between $3m to $20m depending on which company and seniority, investment profile, etc. Where am I wrong?
