Don't have any intel but I'd love to know this too. Seems most places are going "remote work - but you should probably show your face around here once or twice a week." Or "remote work - unless there's a meeting we really want you to join." I'm looking for more "remote work - feel free to move several hours outside Toronto's commutable distance."

Naturally, because my salary is perfectly tooled to support a $1.6m Toronto mortgage.but would be ludicrous for a mere $1.2m Waterloo dwelling.

But really, thanks for the info, the more we talk about forces like this, the better. Preference would be to start somewhere with a more progressive remote work policy and everything laid out at the onset.

What firms allow fully remote, including for paralegals? I see lots of remote opportunities for attorneys, but then they require all paralegals in person?!? We bill too so it seems we are just as trackable with productivity. I've been remote since March 2020 (maintaining and even exceeding billable requirements), but my firm wouldn't let me stay remote since I'm moving to a state where we do not have a physical office.

Hello folks, has Mindtree started with Return to office or hybrid working model? Can I get longterm wfh even after office starts? Or say 1 week of wfh as per our need with manager's approval? How much is the flexibility in this regard?

I am curious if many of you have, or currently work from home? My goal is to work at home to keep costs low until renting a space becomes financially prudent.
