Q for the people that like WFH and never want to go back - what is your living situation? I hate WFH and can’t wait to be back in the office, so curious if other people have adapted better or if their environments are just more conducive to being successful (house with home office and family vs being alone in a 1BR apartment).
I know this gets discussed periodically, but: I’ve always been very ambitious. I’ve never wanted to be a stay at home mom. But after baby 3 I am just exhausted and it’s hard to see why I should be busting my a$$ for some dumb client on some random project. But I feel like my identity can’t do a full 180. Are there many options to do a legit but part time job? Has anyone made this successful, either in consulting or in industry?

Just joined and got on a project with unrealistic deadline. The other two experienced dev and I have already talked internally and to the project manager. M does not seem to appreciate the complexity or how unrealistic it is.
We are gonna try to do it once more with the M and narrow the scope but I am concerned that M won't listen.
I think the other 2 dev is realizing the situation and active trying to leverage their network to get out. This is my 1sr project....

Would you consider a FIFO job for 20% more pay? Currently at $100k TC @40h/week, and received an offer at a northern Ontario mine site for $120k on a 14/14 fly-in-fly out agreement.
Pros of offer:
-direct site experience
Cons of offer:
-will be away from home for 50% of the year
For everyone holding multiple offers and asking about which company to join, doesn't everything ultimately depend on the project which you are joining and your manager there irrespective of which company you join?
The client doesn't do their easy task for 2 months- but the day after the client asks you for a massive, complex deliverable & it isn't final yet, they freak out. #doublestandards #goaway
Does every excuse include the word 'client'? "Late because of client call" "Tied down with client work" etc?

Any advice for negotiation? I made the mistake of accidentally letting slip my current salary and now I’m in final rounds at Facebook and the salary that was disclosed to me by the recruiter is lower than expected and now they’re saying it’s essentially non-negotiable? I don’t have the job yet, so I didn’t ask too many questions, but I’m worried I won’t have much leverage when the time comes.
