For all FB’s talk of hiring more remote workers, they’re also continuing to grab more NYC office space—Hudson yards and the Farley bldg next to Penn Station both recently announced. Real offices aren’t leaving us and thank the lord because WFH is awful.

I wouldn't worry about major hubs going away, there are a whole lot of companies that have said they're not going to do infinite WFH. To LCOL, these cities don't have high enough concentration of talent for large companies to hire en masse without opening a bunch of small dispersed offices--which is inefficient. Small companies in turn follow large companies, since flying sales people around is $$$.

What are peoples opinions on work from home? It seems to be an unpopular opinion but as a junior I despise it. I work 3 feet from my bed, I find the barriers of a phone/email between me and a senior to add a huge amount of stress to my life and I think it’s stunting my career development at my firm because I can’t build relationships as effectively. I’ve never at all had mental health issues before but now am really starting to feel burnt out and anxious most of the time. What do you think?
