So did the senior analyst I interviewed last week every time his math didn’t seem right. I’ve interviewed a lot of people but have never had one who dropped the f-bomb to himself while cracking through the case. Didn’t think he was a good fit for our service line.

I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.

I got hired as a freelancer on a project. 2 days in and we’re off to a slow start getting access to what I need. It’s paid hourly. I blocked out time to work a full day knowing I’d dive right in but that’s not how it turned out. My question is do I bill the full day even though I only put in a few hours of kick off calls and contacting folks to get access to the things I need? It’s not my fault they were disorganized. What would you do?

Need advice on if there's anything I can or should do in this situation. Was managing a project for 6mo with a Client contact who was a *major* problem.

The entire situation is a true mirror of how flawed our law enforcement system is to deal with crisis situations or DV disturbances.

I’m pretty sure colleagues at my firm are inflating their billable hours. Is this the norm? I suspect many of you will think this is obvious and/or that I’m naive but wtf?

I don’t want to sound self-righteous but if most are lying just to make the requirement, then maybe the requirement should be lower.
