About 4 times a year and only one of the days.

Probably once a month and only one of the days. But a lot of those times it’s because I really rather get things done so I don’t kill myself to finish the deal.

Real weekends where I actually need to work to get the deal done is more like 5-6 times a year.

Full days? Rarely. Minor stuff? 50:50

Maybe once or twice a month. And when I do it’s because I have nothing better to do and want to make Monday morning less shitty

Never

funny

For me, the last three weekends. Both days. But I hear this is super uncommon

Typically only a couple weekends per year. Q3’20-Q1’21 was a different story.

How to deal with a Senior Associate who originates $300k to $400k annually but only bills 60-70 hours/month? This individual routinely "delegates" very simple assignments at 5pm due the next morning. Our firm has a 1900 billable requirement, which SA never gets remotely close to but they "bring in business." I'm well on track to hit my hours and find it extremely annoying that I need to keep sacrificing my evenings to work on dumb fire drills for someone that bills less than half what I do.

I just spoke with a software architect that went back to school to learn software engineering after law school because it was more lucrative and had less hours. He’s worked his way up and has the skills and authority to work 6:30am-10am and gets to work remotely. We discussed that results/outputs is better than billable time like in law and public accounting. Yet, his parents and others would view him as “lazy” but he does his job and makes a fantastic living. Time>Money and Results>Hours
