Since we're bragging... I now work 100% remote, bill 20 hrs a week but actually work about 10 hrs and make $75k. I feel like I have unlocked all the cheat codes and beat the game. #blessed 🙏
For people at remote-first companies (I’m in industry, not deloitte anymore), how do you feel about optional in-person events for employees that live close to the optional office? Especially wondering about the feelings of people who chose to live in a different city, and therefore can’t attend.
I make over a quarter of a million dollars a year working in finance and since wfh over half my "work hours" time I'm just playing video games or reading a book.

Suggestions for ergonomical WFH equipment? Heard people struggling with general discomfort during WFH due to their equipment (chair, desk, mouse, etc) and want to get ahead of the curb to avoid this.
I’m fully remote for 2 years now. More productive than ever. Present for my family like never before. Have met more people from my company than I would’ve if I’d rely only on bumping into them. Have a much more focused, open and dynamic creative process with my teams. My company doubled size. Why would anyone consider going to a physical place to do work that’s delivered digitally ever again, even if for a day per year?
COVID WFH has put me several time zones away from my client (I’m further west and their culture is to start the day early anyway). It’s a new project so I don’t have relationships built up. How much pushback on morning meetings is reasonable? I know the project can’t operate totally around me but these start times aren’t sustainable...
I’ve been ending my work days at 12 AM (I wfh), but bright side is that I don’t work weekends. Basically, when do the long nights end? Does it get easier? I’m a first year
Any recommendations for a hybrid robot vacuum in terms of price-performance Ratio or important buying criteria? WFH makes it necessary and I want to treat myself :). Key information: floor is parquet, so I guess it should have dry/wet/wiping functions, don’t have any pets, thought I want to spend 300€ max. but no clue if investing more is worth it. Highly appreciate any input :)!
Fishes, Hiw many development centers does dell have in bangalore? Could you please help me with the locations? And is dell planning to come up with a permenent remote option?
How did you set your rent budget when moving in with a partner? I make £125k base (£167k inc bonus), and my boyfriend makes £95k base (£105k inc bonus). I’m used to allocating 30% of my take-home pay to rent, which is about £1800/mo for a charming neighbourhood in zone 1, but my bf’s used to paying closer to £1000/mo to live in zone 6 and balks at the rent prices I think are reasonable given our incomes and locations we want (zone 2). We both wfh so ideally want a 3BR. (Continued in comments)
Facebook has extended its remote work policy through July 2021, but I'm told I'd still have to relocate by the end of the year if I accept an offer. I have an infant so this is risky. Can I request an exception or will they look for someone else then?
Bain fish, what’s the work from home policy? Do you have to live within a certain distance of your home office?
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
Quick poll. If you work remote, does your company reimburse internet? Mine has reimbursed it for years, and took it away this year. Seems like a weird move to do that now, so just curious about other's experience.

I joined ACN last January. I had an awful manager who bullied me. Told me I would never make it at the company, that my coworkers hated me. I was just told I was not given a raise or a bonus Bc...
