A small cut, yes. But I still have value. My work still has value. That has not changed. I don't think I should have to sacrifice to a high degree.

^^^ Took the words out of my mouth! WFH should be an option, not a privilege.

I would be willing, but not a massive cut. I think in this case the 20% mentioned above would be too much.

20% was just an example.

yes definitely

how much of a paycut are we talking? I've seen some people take 20% cut to have a 4-day week and am tempted to ask for that

Not more than 20%

It depends if it makes sense. The natural reaction would be yes, but I'm not one of those people who hate going to the office.

Yes, for the next couple of years. Once my kid goes to school, then I'll be back in office 100%.

So my roommate has been staying elsewhere since we began quarantining and has been returning intermittently. Roommate has been paying half the electricity bill, which I have felt weird even charging for, but my friends have insisted that it is still both our responsibilities. Given WFH is permanent as of now, the electricity has been a bit higher with me home for the 10 hours I’d normally be gone. And with summer approaching, AC is going to double that cost. Do I still keep charging half? AITA?

I can honestly say that working from home these last few years has been the best thing that’s happened to my career as a producer. I never realized how distracting being in an office was. Now, I actually can focus on bidding, scheduling, reviewing contracts, and all of the stressful parts of production WITHOUT having to factor in code switching and a commute. I left my agency producer role for a fully remote producing role and I’m just….thrilled. Anyone else refuse to go back to office? 😩

I feel like the usual consulting exit messaging to new employers used to be “need to get off the road”. For those exiting during the pandemic, how are you phrasing the decision to exit to potential employers? My concern with saying something like “need improved work-life balance” is that it equates to “I want to work less hard” given that many companies allow remote work right now which blurs the hours of operation. Am I overthinking this?
