Yes, and if they push back find somewhere else to work ASAP. If your firm values FaceTime over your health that's a bad sign. I can't even remember the last time I had a substantive face-to-face in the office anyways. People just call or email even if they're 20 feet away 🙄

It’s kind of strange but I feel like I could do 99% of this job in my apartment. At times, I can actually do it better because I don’t need to waste time commuting or dealing with dry cleaning.

I’ve gotten to the point in my career where I’m more comfortable in meetings full of people talking about ads. I dread social settings. My wife offered to put a ploycom on table during a dinner party.

How much of a salary increase (%) is standard or expected when switching consulting firms for a similar level / role? Currently at 150K and was offered 170K (13% increase) — obviously the total package needs to be considered but the base salary is arguably the most important factor. Appreciate your thoughts & any advice!
