Does anyone have experience with asking for a lower hour requirement and a proportional salary decrease? (E.g. staff attorney, counsel, etc.) I don’t have kids (yet) but I’m fortunate in that my husband and I both have great salaries and we talk a lot about “How much money is enough” for us and would just rather have more time off/more flexibility. Life is short. 💕

It's that time to review utilization again! I absolutely love the math that takes place here:

2080 Available work hours in a year at 40 hour work week
144 hours of PTO (18x 8 hour days)
1936
104 hours for 13 paid holidays (published on ToD)
1832
40 hours mandatory CED
1792

Target utilization - 90% of 2080 hours - 1872 (published figure for SS, SC, C,A,PD)

hmmm...

(and yes, I've heard at AHMs that it's based on a 45-hour work week, just making a point here)
