London office we’re all working like nothing has happened, no precautionary measures, just that they’ll ‘keep us informed’! It’s worrying tbh given other companies are being more proactive. Hope they don’t regret it...

Right? I guess they don’t care about the health of workers until it’s too late

Aight holiday gifts/tips for staff (mainly my PA) - I had heard as junior that it’s $100 per class year, so for example if ur a 3rd year it’s $300 to your PA.

I love my PA but this year with WFH I really did not give her any work, but also we all get paid more what with covid bonuses so it seems extra grinch to not pay out. What’s your plan?

By close of eyes is not a reasonable time for any deliverable to be due. You work from home not 24/7. Let’s normalize standard working hours; if work isn’t done within eight to nine hours in day then it’s time for evaluate systems, if all those Zoom calls were necessary and staff utilization.
