I think it depends on the office. If your in a big one like NY I would to meet folks, but smaller offices don’t always have much going on mid week

Nope. No point

Nope. Moved out of state. Away from the physical bench

Was told during orientation that it’s mandatory but no one enforces it

I always do on Fridays. My friends do HH pretty regularly and it raises my spirits.

Yup

Yes.

No we call it the beach for a reason 🏖
