on a more serious note, Residence Inn/Sheraton are your best bets, if you want any decent food it'll be in Hoboken or take the ferry/bus to the city, LA Fitness/Walmart are close by and convenient

Not too bad! An extra 30 is ok for good food and a nice hotel. No different than any other DC commute I would do

I work in a 7-attorney firm with a national presence. Partly because I’m only a few months in, I work a roughly 8-6 day. I’m also new to billing and often find myself working all day and billing just 4 hours. Whenever I bring this up to the partner, he says it’s good we’re not over billing our client. We don’t have minimum billable hours so it doesn’t matter much for the firm’s sake but I think I’m missing out on learning the important skill of billing my time. Has anyone ever experienced this?

I love my new client side job. But the west coast based team is not considerate of my time zone. I’ve been here four weeks with no improvement despite being vocal about it (within reason). My manager works non stop so I am sympathetic to that. But it often means I go days without seeing my young kids after school. Any suggestions?
