    This isn't true.
    A really stylish man doesn't need a watch at all, because his time is always the right one.

    My employer typically does also. People have weekend plans and are less likely to attend Fridays.

    Yeah. When you're a young junior employee you're kinda like "wtf is this shit" (and you take off friday or come in super hungover and are unproductive). But when you've got a family and are going to go home by 9pm anyways...it saves you a precious weekend night, sitters are easier to find, etc. Also a little easier to manage for our handful of remote workers and other-office brass who want to come in (unless their dream is to take a December weekend trip to go to a work holiday party...).

    I'd say it is because we are cheap, but I'm not even sure that's true. We're on billable hours, so unless the cost savings are really significant, I can't imagine they outweigh the lost revenue. Nobody works late on the day of the holiday party, and lots of people take the next day off or come in late.

    My buddy moved to a competitor that has a much more culty atmosphere and a higher ratio of young staff...they do a saturday party and it runs until midnight.

    I prefer company parties during the week. I don't have kids, but I want to go home on Friday and spend time with my wife.

    A few years ago Mrs. Piob's prior place had their company party at a really nice historic resort but across the metroplex from the Piob Palace. We rented an entire guest house at the resort, three bed/bath, huge wood burning fireplace, complimentary stocked wetbar and 1/3 of the party was at our rental by 8:30 pm. Party went until about 3 am and apparently those not on Mrs. Piob's guest list were butthurt on Monday hearing stories about our after party...including two of the three owners.
