What's happened to everyone's pay? How have your companies dealt with it ?

Thoughts on going back to the office?

How’s the editing scene seeming for everyone? Seems to be picking up some (I’m in NYC). Hoping it’s a real trend and not a fluke.

Do we think supervised sessions will be as common once we’re all back in the office? Or will clients be more comfortable having us work on our own? Almost everything I’m doing now is unsupervised and … more
