Me. I hate getting dressed to go out.

My daily commute was 3-3.5 hours per day before this. I've gained a lot of extra sleep.

Definitely. I find I get so much more done without distractions of people stopping by or random office chit chat. I still get in plenty of BS, but when I log off at the end of the day, I’m not stressing over how much I didn’t get to that day.

Yeah it took me like 3 weeks but I got the hang of this now

Yes Bc I have a tot and no commute adds time to my day. Also I don't mind sending work mostly overseas and putting in extra communication efforts to my team from home

Easily. No commute, no need to worry about being presentable, and fewer distractions make it ideal.

No. Not a homebody...need to socialize LIVE

Absolutely yes. Saves so much time not having to put on makeup and do my hair. The great gender equalizer

Yes. Have bad ADD and get very little done in the office

How do you all think remote working is influencing gender dynamics in your teams? I wonder if/how relying on virtual comms with no in-person interactions will help or hurt things.

How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.

What are your strategies for completing work efficiently? How do you figure out how long projects should take? A consistent piece of feedback on my yearly reviews has been that I over-bill & spend too much time on assignments. It’s something I actively work on, but I still have no concrete sense of how long I should spend on basic tasks (e.g., drafting a motion to dismiss). My firm is right to expect that I manage my time better as a mid-level associate. WFH has made my time management worse.
