Consulting

I feel like some SMs are brainwashed by the client. One I am working with doesn't like people leaving or wfh or going to the home office. Dude I gotta go catch up on my PD work.

What....no don't leave the client site to do PD. Do pd work at the client site. That way you get to charge your 40 hours, you get face time and you get to build your PD work on the clients dime. Yes its shady...but its how business is done

No this is a bit extreme. I also want to go to my home office to get face time with my partner.
