I feel like this is all so 1998. These days isn’t it way more effective for everyone to work remote Monday and fly Monday afternoon?

Aside from the fact that they will never think you are doing enough just set up an early pod and cc them on a couple emails. Problem solved.

My favorite:
6:00 EDT wake
8:15 EDT flight
10:30 CDT arrive... sometimes I could sneak a nap in the hotel and still make it before lunchtime
Gain an hour on Mondays, lose it Thu.

Lately:
5:45wake
8:00train (long commute to train)
11:00arrive

I sleep the entire trip no matter what.

The 3:45am wake ups are for the birds but what can you do?

Once you ask for any onsite opportunities, the manager will tell you that "SORRY" there are no vacancies now / we can't release you from this project / other priority candidates there like that.

Once we put the paper you will surprise like you will get calls/emails from every country or every continent or if any chances you will get calls from another GALAXY also.....

Still, I cant understand the logic behind it.....
