I sent an email out stating that we will eventually return to the office. If anyone wanted to continue to WFH, let me know and we could discuss. I was open to the idea if the person was more productive working from home. Interestingly, not one attorney wanted to continue working from home.

This is exactly how I feel. The flexibility is gold.

I think you are not going to see a lot of firm policies on it. I spoke to the partners I work with and they’re totally fine with WFH (with the occasional day in to socialize), and if the partners I work with are ok with it, the firm is ok with it.

Also wondering what consensus is. Don’t even know what mine is.

Is there a time when people generally “start” work remotely? Back when I was a summer before the pandemic, I commonly saw people go in between 9-10 am but I didn’t know what the norm is now that we are remote. I see emails at 8 am and I’m not sure if I’m expected to respond then or not. Also if you are on a deal where some of the members are in NY and you’re in the Midwest, are you expected to go by their times and be on when they are on?

What is it about law that glorifies morning people so much? I am NOT one and wfh has been so great for me in terms of being able to set my own schedule, but now that we’re starting to go back to the office I’ve noticed some pointed comments about people not being in by 8am. I bill as much (generally more) than other associates, so why does it matter if I start at 9 and work late?? I’m finding it hard to go back to the arbitrary-feeling 8am office start when I know I’m not going to be productive.
