  1. I think this is kind of shitty, but 8pm isn’t TOO bad, especially if it’s during a busy season. 9pm would be too late for a demand like this.

  2. B4 Sr. Manager here. Good job. That is excessive. Responding within a few hours when you can/are working is fine, but the expectation shouldn’t always be there.

  3. Agreed, I work in the public sector now and anything sent after 5 pm counts as sent the next day. If you email me at 8PM and need a response, you better call me and tell me why it was not urgent enough to communicate during the business day.
