Sunday. Then after I do a good job, I request Monday night red eyes or some other form of flex. But it's really hard to miss a full day Monday.

Just giving a bit of Gyan to fellow fishers Please please do not ever use CTC comparison between current and next company. If you get an offer, do an in hand calculation. Some companies add Retirals like Employer PF, Gratuity along with Insurance, furniture allowance as part of your CTC. Others don't. Sone also have higher variable package. So when you do a CTC delta you may get a 20% hike but when you discount the above things you will fall short and may end up making less. So choose wisely.

I proposed to account that they put together a few slides that help guide a conversation with a client. This client has been known to go off on tangents and provide relatively unclear direction. The call happened today and the account dir opened up the call by saying “X has some slides they want to share to help with today’s call”. Putting me on the spot. This call was by no means to serve strategic work, and I was there as solely as support. How would you have handled this situation?
