Okay I’m going to say it if hasn’t been said before: I want the option to go back to the office now. I get some of you have kids or prefer wfh but I can’t stand it.

Honestly the process has made me so stressed. I'm interviewing with another company at the same time and their process feels warm & they take their time answering
