Does anyone on the West Coast work for a tech company on the East Coast? If so, are you expected to work on EST?

This is completely up to the company and varies by how much they embrace remote. If most of the company is based in EST, then you can expect to have crossover with those hours.


Yep, I worked 7AM to 3PM, it's sounds whack but prefer it over 9-5, because then you have more time after work


As an east coaster looking at some of the West Coast companies, they're still expecting PST hours; so I’d assume it would work the same way.

I imagine it is only for meetings and such. Actual working time can be asynchronous.

I work for an east coast company and was able to talk my manager into letting me work closer to central hours but attend any mandatory meetings that happen outside of that. It’s not too bad doing 9-5 eastern, though, because you’re done so much earlier. Just need to make sure you have very bright lights in your workspace and quick access to caffeine

Any women here with lean PCOS? I do not ovulate on my own (metformin regulated my periods but I still don’t ovulate) and am moving from three cycles of Clomid/IUI to IVF soon. No other issues have been found other than my PCOS (HSG shows tubes open). Curious about your experiences. And the reason I mentioned lean PCOS is because it seems for others with PCOS part of the fertility path is diet/exercise/weight loss but I am already very tiny.

I have been invited for a new interview today with another team, and I am hoping 4th time is the charm. Any tips on how to do better next time?
