I FINALLY have a start date for IVF STIMs 11/5 and my company is requiring us to RTO on 11/1. I’ve expressed concerns and have asked to extend WFH for a period of time due to medical necessity (if I get sick, the cycle is cancelled and I’m out $$$$ and my sanity) but HR is asking me and my doctor to fill out forms that essentially say I’m unwilling to get the vaccine, which isn’t true. Does anyone have advice on how to handle? They’re saying this is the only form that’s applicable.
Any non-contract remote PM roles out there? Or is this as rare as a unicorn? Would appreciate any referrals. 4+ of PM, finishing up MBA w/PM concentration, almost 15 YOE DoD. TS/SCI.
Two questions: 1) I’m pregnant with my first baby (16 weeks), any advice on when to disclose? 2) Does that timing advice change given our current COVID circumstances? I’ve been WFH since March, and while the Firm hasn’t indicated it’s going to require us back in, a handful of partners I work have started to mention it. I’d like to nip that talk in the bud and feel like a reasonable way to do that is to disclose. Thanks in advance for any thoughts?

Seriously considering buying a used camper, doing a light renovation, and taking it out west and just working remote next summer. Put all of my belongings in storage, set my parents address as mailing address, and just be a nomad for at least next summer. I would get a Verizon router for WFH. Am I crazy to be seriously considering doing this? Single M 🐠, 26.
If a firm sent you free tech for WFH (monitors, docking station, keyboard, and mouse), are you obligated to return it once you leave? Obviously will return the laptop, but was wondering if it’s normal/expected to keep everything else. Insights appreciated! (Relatedly: laterals, do your new firms send you stuff or give you a stipend for your home office? Assuming at least partial remote for now)
Might seem like a silly question but do any of your firms, or do you know of any firms, that have fairly progressive cultures? WFH has made me realize how incredibly stifled I felt in the office. I want to be able to show some tattoos, have a purple streak in my hair, wear artistic clothing etc and still be taken seriously. Does this kind of utopia exist or am I being extremely naive? I'm originally an artist. I hate how much I've realized that I've stifled my personality for this industry.
Do you think firms will update expense policies to allow for reimbursable overtime meals in the remote environment (rather than only allowing reimbursement for meals consumed on site)?
