If Donald trump works from Trump Tower two days a week, is he remote and WFH? As his client, I am not ok with that since his billable rate is really high.

While I would argue he should be onsite all the time for a number of reasons, the billable rate argument is not particularly strong. At $400,000; 24 hours a day; 365 days a year... Rate is ~$45

Demanding client.

At least he's going to MAGA

I think what OP means that the cost if suffering and other trauma, the overall human price is too much to pay.

So far his cabinet is in disarray, the U.K. pM had trouble scheduling a call with him, and his son-in-law wants security clearance. Sorry Donald, no remote days for you.

Hi ladies. I work in IT consulting and we don’t typically have to put notes in for billable hours, but a few weeks ago my boss asked me to start entering notes, about what exactly I was working on for client A,B,and C. I just said sure and didn’t ask why. I found out today from other colleagues that no one else was asked to enter notes in for their time. What’s a good way to ask my boss why the new change? I’d at least like to know if I did something wrong so I can improve.

Useful tip: Try to maintain a file where you diligently update notes about all the projects you have worked on, what challenges did you face, your learnings, client/ manager testimonials etc. This will help you in your next interview. It is not humanly possible to remember every single detail.
