    Well this is fun......not.

    It's goddamn 4.30am and I'm still at my desk. What's more our client is still upstairs in one of our meeting rooms going through documents. The woman must be a robot!

    Do I win the longest working day award or are there any junior doctors on here?

    [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/sleep.gif[/img] = primary goal right now!

    Sympathy appreciated.

    That is pretty awful though as well. My last 4 days have been:

    Friday: 9am - Midnight
    Saturday: 9am - 2am
    Sunday: 9am - 11pm
    Monday: 9am - 6am.

    Kinda hurts right now.

    I'm a finance lawyer.

    Re: Well this is fun......not.

    Quick question to all those with really long hours... do you feel your pay reflects these hours? Normally I am 9 till 6, and only have to work late about 10 nights a month, so nothing drastic... but it is reflected in my pay... which is quite frankly a large cotton pair of pants (not literally of course)!

    Youll be a lawyer then as description suggests.

    Long hours are not something I do, and refuse to do also.

    Re: Well this is fun......not.

    No my pay does definitely not reflect this!

    My basic is pretty good by most standards but there's no overtime, you have to contract out of your rights under the working time directive and the bonus target is (a) hard to achieve and (b) worth a maximum of 10% of my basic pre-tax and thus is assuredly not worth the effort.

    Everyone thinks lawyers rake it in and swan about having long lunches. Well not in this place that's for sure. Unless you are really senior and then you do rake it sickening amounts and become extremely fat from too many s****y lunches. Which I guess is the carrot.

    Re: Well this is fun......not.

    Yeah the hard work is def not reflected in my pay. I'm saleried so no over time there. Plus I had to sign the opt out for working hours.

    Ho hum, but package is good though for my age so I'm not too fussed, plus my hours can be flexible sometime depending on work load and clients to see.

    Taffy - I need to change my profile. No longer a QS, I'm a project / Site Manager, currently completing the transition from one contrat to another. Hopefully things will slow down once the systems and procedures are in place.

    Fingers crossed.
