You shouldn’t be working weekends. If you’re working weekends then the project is not staffed right or managed well. Things will get better as you develop experience and become quicker with your work. I have done many midnight days but these are not the norm and your experience will vary depending on your project team

Burning the bridge usually refers to your teams - do you want to leave them hanging? Do they have the potential to be useful connections down the road? Up to you.

I'm in the same position, and have decided to put in 45-50 charge hours until the end. I agree it is unreasonable to expect you to put in the same effort. However, I did also let some of my close team members know 3-4 weeks in advance so that there is time to look for someone else/plan ahead.

I just received a good offer to move from ID to PI. The only thing is the firms main offices are in other cities in my state. In order to bring me on, they offered to create my office at their current office space in my city (currently only used to meet clients) and hire a paralegal to be with me. This is obviously super accommodating. My question is what do you think about me working by myself? A great way to avoid toxic office BS or kind of lonely? WWYD?

Tips on work life balance is this instance? My acct is only about 7 months old & considered a huge win/growth driver for my agency. The high stress, adhoc requests never stop. My GAD is so hands off — Never picks up slack, just delegates, never says no. Then comes in at the last hour to nitpick yet not help. My clients & team (minus my GAD) are good people but it’s hard to live with such a high volume stress. Any strategies for surviving this acct? Not native to the fact this is agency life :/

I’m traveling again for work and while it took me a while to get back into it, I’m almost as efficient as I was pre-Covid. My issue is that when I get home, I am exhausted.

I know travel disrupts sleep and I eat heavier food when I’m on the road, so I’m watching that, but any other tips to not come home feeling like a shell? Or how to bounce back faster?
