Yes it's by far the most common model. I leave Thursday at 4, but don't get home until 11

How the hell are you guys pulling off leaving the client site at 2-3 on Thurs? Are your flights >3.5hrs?

I try to leave at whatever time will get me to my apartment by 9pm or so. If my project is a short flight away, that may mean leaving the office at 5. However, if my project is a long flight away, that may mean leaving the office at 2:30.

anywhere after 3 is usually acceptable. depends on the circumstances. always clear with your SM.

What time do you get to the client site on Mondays?

Typically have an option of around 4 and around 6 flight. Typically take the latter unless I have a good reason (lands around 8:30).

Haha, cali to Chicago is a long flight

Please include origin and destination. It would not be meaningful to describe travel from JFK to SFO against DTW to TPA.

Hey all, so I was initially informed my hiring process would be the following (Apple) HM interview -> Case study -> On site I completed case study last week and was informed it would take 1-2 weeks to hear back. I felt like I bombed the interview but ended up hearing back relatively quickly that I’ll be passed on for another interview (not on site). Since I am fed an additional interview before the on-site, does this mean my feedback was neutral?

I need some advice on my next steps after being laid off. It’s a bit complicated but for 5 month out of this past year I was forced to give up my billable hours in order to help “load balance” our team. I went from billing 100% to 58% (safe zone). Billable hours were given to other team members who didn’t have work. This was designed to help average out hours to prevent layoffs. I agreed to do this but felt it was unethical and would affect my performance review. How would you approach HR?
