Booz Allen doesn’t pay us enough to pull all nighters. If you’re doing that with any regularity than you’re Booz Allening wrong. I’ve worked late occasionally but have never been close to pulling anything near an all nighter.

Did 2 all nighters in the first year of my career, at a different firm....0 in the next 2 years, at firm 2....and 3 in week at firm 3 (a serious clusterfuck and I placed out shortly after).

Not since grad school. I wish I cared enough about my job to pull an all nighter.

@SC1 definitely not pulling all nighters, just asking generally

@SA1 Absolutely. Description is based on a friend I know who works for an investment banking company in NY and pulled one a week. That’s where the timeframe stems from.

1 every other 2 weeks. Don’t do hybrid agile

Only for my own stupid reasons - def not work

Because you are often really forced to agree to all three parts of the triangle cost, time, and scope is hybrid agile and everything works in two week sprints, you end up pushing too much into sprints and having a day of hell at the end of every sprint.

Zero. Stopped that in my twenties

Generally once a week

I don’t think all nighters should ever be thought of on a weekly basis regardless of firm, that should absolutely be a once in a blue moon kind of situation. In 3 years of consulting I’ve done 2 all nighters, both with very specific project reasons.

@D1 hybrid Agile?

I have an interview next week and want to vet the new law firm with questions to determine if there’s a good work-life balance, respect for how work is delegated (i.e., attorneys are not routinely asked to do obvious paralegal work), and what overall systems/structures are in place to make it a functional/successful environment. What sorts of questions do you think would get this info and also cut through the usual bs of “we’re a family here” when in reality no one talks to each other?

Anyone else feeling burnout/depression working from home? I’ve been wfh for 2 years now. I like my job, it’s easy, but I feel like I’m kind of drifting. Every day feels the same. I’ve tried working from coffee shops, etc, but it doesn’t seem to help. These people aren’t my colleagues. So I’m around people but don’t interact with them. Has anyone else experienced this ? How did you fix it? You see so many articles about embracing wfh flexibility on the internet but I just don’t get it.

I think I may have a jerk boss.
