Take the weekend off. That’s it’s purpose

Get ahead secretly, so you don’t get assigned more

Exactly, some people are terrible, if they know your done they will give you more. So be secretive about it. What I like to do is do some work over the weekend and then like review it before I send to manager during the weekday. This way I dealt with any headaches that pop up and have a proper idea as to how long it will take to complete. Then leave at 9/10....


I’m completely lying, I feel guilty all weekend then Sunday afternoon start going thru stuff. It still helps as you are a bit more ahead the 5 hours on Sunday are like 10 weekday hours due to nobody bothering you

There is always work to do. Take it off.

I personally feel better doing a bit of work over the weekend, but take some time to rest as well. Everyone is different, so do whatever suits yourself!

Hi Folks
I have been offered a position of Senior Developer- Senior Associate 1 in PwC AC Bangalore with 19LPA fixed.
I would like to understand what this role is. I am currently a Consultant in EY with 5.8 YoE. Am I being lowballed by PwC? Or is this fair?
Also HR said that I can work from Anywhere so it means I need not relocate. Is this true?
Any clarity would be appreciated!

I just spoke with a software architect that went back to school to learn software engineering after law school because it was more lucrative and had less hours. He’s worked his way up and has the skills and authority to work 6:30am-10am and gets to work remotely. We discussed that results/outputs is better than billable time like in law and public accounting. Yet, his parents and others would view him as “lazy” but he does his job and makes a fantastic living. Time>Money and Results>Hours
