I am currently covering for someone on paternity leave. This means I've doubled the Sales Managers I'm supporting as well as the clients I'm supporting. I don't mind doing the work but I'd like to ask to be compensated for the increased workload. Has anyone done this? If so, how did you go about it? I'm relatively new to Tech so I'm not sure how to start the conversation.

Not fond of the idea of ranking the big 4 in terms of who is best to work for. It's just a matter of preference to the company. Besides, we all work terrible hours anyway. Same bull, different firm.
