Try it for a week and see how you like it?

Get a hotel. I had a daily 5hr RT commute to a client. It was awful

like

Have done it. Waking up early was OK for me, but coming home to no free time to cook and gym was a big thumbs down for me. Definitely get hotel if project allows. UNLESS you have kids/other loved ones you have to care for at home

Yes, 2 hours at least, each way... it was hard doing that every day (imo), but not too bad if it's only one in a while. Depends on what works for you and if you can maybe read in the train..

Am doing it ... but limiting to thrice a week

I’ve done 2.5 each way 1-2 times a week. Gets old fast. Make friends with the Acela crew.

I can’t tell if I’m being too sensitive or my seniors are really passive aggressive towards me all the time. Like I can’t lash out at micro-aggression, what am I supposed to say? Treat me the same way as you treat the other staff? My working environment has taken a toll on my mental health and my desire to stay in audit. And idk if it’s my fault or I’m just in a really toxic environment. I haven’t really been on other teams.
