Who else actually only works 10-15 hours a week? Be honest. I’m a highly levered manager and outsource everything. Bless up.

As you progress you generally have less project specific responsibilities - it makes sense from both a responsibility standpoint (eg manage client relationships, present deliverables), but on the practical end - eg if the higher level peeps bill more hours then the client will complain and the project is not leveraged correctly. If the SM does little on your project I would hope it’s because the SM is handling other engagements as well. When you’re more junior your role is to substantially deliver on one, maybe two projects - it’s a natural development.

Really depends what you want in life. Believe it or not, I know people that work less than OP and get paid more than me. Contrary to most posts on this app, work isn't always about hours, money, or money per hour. I work longish (40-50) hours to make sure I can learn the skills I want and eventually make a difference, however small, on the people of this planet. If OP values his own time with family (or hot tubbing) and wants to live his/her life like that, I respect that as well.

Didn’t expect this level of animosity from juniors hahahaha. I paid my dues, now enjoy the fruits. Good managers delegate, not execute. These suggestions I step in to help are preposterous.

If I saw a Manager on my team working only 10-15 hours due to outsourcing the work to juniors, they would not be on the engagement very long

Jealous of the schedule and depending on the project, it can be a value add to the junior team members. There are times where you need to build up the junior staff so you can move on to something else and the only way to do that is delegating the work to them and be there as a support in case a fire starts. For me, it has never been long term but there are times this happens and you should take advantage and enjoy it.

In my previous consultancy that I will not name, my team and I had a manager just like you. He delegated all his work onto us even though we were already grossly understaffed and made our life hell for months. It turns out he was doing this to many others in the office and was called the great delegator. We whistle-blowed on him and he resigned. Hopefully this story will help with perspective

They have yet to figure out the secret sauce lolll. It took me 5 years to do so. I was grinding with the mentality that maybe I’ll be seen and recognize, instead skipped for promotions. Then once I figured out the secret sauce I worked less, prompted, highest raises and AIP, and just worked the ‘people navigation’ angle.

10 years from now we will all end up in the same place and shout out to the ones that do it with less man hours 🔥

Good job OP.
Key to success is to look busy as if you are doing 75-80 hours a week but do only 10-15 hours a week. Don't drop the ball on optics of looking busy.

Don’t understand the hates in this thread. If the OP has a strong team, doesn’t throw his subordinates under the bus, give credits where they’re due, plus exposure, support to SCs, Cs and have them work less than 40 hours, all credits to OP frankly. It’s a win win for everyone. It’s not a zero sum game.
