Not immediately upon return but within 6 months I scaled back to 80% and took Fridays off. It was tremendous for my own mental health to have a bit more balance. Kids in childcare, Fridays became my day to actually take care of myself and life chores. Some clients were great with it (less fees for them!) but I also took some internal roles while doing this. I’m back to 100% now and miss it. You have to be very clear and firm about your boundaries, though!

Honestly don't understand why people are so opposed to going into the office. Is this because you think spending 20-60 min commuting each way costs you billables? Personally I need separation between work and home. It helps my mental health but the anger I see in some posts about having to go to the office is strange to me.

Let's start an argument. Working 100% remote absolutely downgrades your interpersonal relationships with coworkers, execs, and clients while also keeping you within your own bubble of assigned areas and not allowing you to hear conversations about other areas to develop you further. We need to be back in the office 3-4 days a week for our own best interest. Yes we've proven we can do audits virtually, but our staff have suffered tremendously in their development these past 2 years.

Am I overreacting? My former boss texted me last night asking if I would be able to work on a landing page project over the night. For some context I left the company a month ago because I was severely underpaid and with no benefits. I’m 30 and I’ve been there for over 5 years paying for health insurance out of pocket and a 50k salary. I offered to help with a few side projects but now I feel like he’s leaning on me again and thinks because I’m so nice I’ll say yes and slave away for him anytime
