What are peoples opinions on work from home? It seems to be an unpopular opinion but as a junior I despise it. I work 3 feet from my bed, I find the barriers of a phone/email between me and a senior to add a huge amount of stress to my life and I think it’s stunting my career development at my firm because I can’t build relationships as effectively. I’ve never at all had mental health issues before but now am really starting to feel burnt out and anxious most of the time. What do you think?

What level of heels are appropriate for the office, and are form-fitting dresses with a blazer looked down on? I wore some heels that were kind of high last week and got seriously dirty looks from the older women in the office. I thought I was dressing professionally but now I'm worried. Haven't been here very long and I don't want to make a bad impression.
