How long should it take to get ramped up for a new job? Just started this week so day 3 in the books but feel so out of the loop since it’s a new industry and the company’s main product offering is a homegrown platform. I’m coming in as a Manager and report up to a recently promoted VP if that’s of any consolation.

I’ve been in my job 3 months, still learning as it’s a brand new industry with a very hands off manager who is an EVP (I’m only an analyst)

In 2020 I was diagnosed with epilepsy. I have a number of seizures a day but don’t knowwhen I’m having them (EEG detected it). I started on meds and am feeling much better, however the only way to know if meds are 100% working is to go to hospital for 3 day EEG. I’m supposed to try to live my daily life as much as possible during EEG so I need to work. But can’t do zoom calls. I hadn’t planned on disclosing my diagnosis to my boss but now feel like I’m backed in a corner here. (Cont in comments)

What are your strategies for completing work efficiently? How do you figure out how long projects should take? A consistent piece of feedback on my yearly reviews has been that I over-bill & spend too much time on assignments. It’s something I actively work on, but I still have no concrete sense of how long I should spend on basic tasks (e.g., drafting a motion to dismiss). My firm is right to expect that I manage my time better as a mid-level associate. WFH has made my time management worse.
