Do you find working remotely during this time that you’re having a harder time staying on top of everything that’s going on? With the scattered communication and a boss who hasn’t been as focused and can be hard to pin down, I sometimes think I’m giving 150% but something ends up lagging and I’m just wiped out. What are some of your tactics to avoid missed items and stay active and on top of everything through the Covid funk?

I’m being forced back into the office. No one is wearing masks. I’ve found that I get considerably more done, and more efficiently, when I’m not constantly worried about dying.

I’ll be honest. I want to be back in the office. Much more productive and focused

No, I find that I like it better except that I miss the interaction with colleagues. But not everyone handles it well or likes it and it sounds like your boss is struggling, making your job harder.

I hate WFH, but I wouldn't want to be forced back. I also have a hard time staying focused, and it's really lonely (I live alone). Unfortunately, I also don't have any good suggestions.

Nope... quite the opposite actually. I love working from home! I get so much more done, and my executives said that they like that I'm able to do so because they've noticed my response time has increased and they feel like they get more work time from me. Lol! I love not having all of the office interruptions.

Right there with you. I find it a struggle to be motivated at home. I’m doing my job well, but I felt that I actually enjoyed it at the office.

Benefits Question: how is the health insurance where you are? How does your employer handle it?

This has become one of the most important things when interviewing for me. My last employer went from having no insurance option to giving us one terrible plan that they contributed 50% towards. My current employer works with Gravie so we get so much per month and can use it towards any plan on the marketplace. Only thing that sucks is the contributions are post-tax so it counts as income.

Hi all,

I just got a job with Delta airlines and I had an accomodation request to work remotely as I am Immunocompromised. I provided all the neccesary documents to back up my request and letters and documents from my Dr. aswell. My request was denied because the team said they wanted me to have face time and one on one interactions with people from other team (which defeats the purpose of my request) because I have to limit those interactions to reduce the risk of infection. What do I do?

Pros:

- fairly decent place to work (from someone who worked with the Vancouver and San Jose offices). never met a blue badger (permanent employee) who had awful things to say.

- Ashley Goodall (their SVP, Methods & Intelligence) co-authored a brilliant book on leadership and people management called “Nine Lies About Work” that makes me believe they can be an awesome place to work

Cons:

- red badgers had low morale since they’re contract workers and can be terminated at any time
