We opened as of this week but only 10% at the moment. And absolutely voluntarily. For people who need to use bigger/more screens, or their working conditions at home aren’t great. Only one floor is open and you have to book a “hot desk” 48 hrs in advance that will be completely sanitized after.

Thx for sharing.

So crazy. Folks see a title and think that it’s a magical immunity shield from the BS.

Yes this is true but it’s 100% voluntary.

Exactly!!

We’re open. Limited capacity, 25% I think, strict rules, voluntary. No one on my team has gone in or plans to until forced.

A few people in Chicago going in voluntarily but not many. Max 30%. We might get to 5%, in reality.

The biggest problem is, are you going to close again when flu season + cases spike in the fall? Or is it just better to wait until next year?

Imagine if the US was like Japan and people always wore a mask when they felt sick. We could cut down severe flu outbreaks at work, too. The open office plan was such a mistake on so many levels.

We aren’t open. Think there may be very limited amounts of voluntary workers allowed back in a month or so

For everyone who (helpfully) replied with their reopening intel, is mask wearing mandatory? We are trying to advise on why not to open but have stated that mask wearing shouldn’t be optional if we go above 10% capacity (unless you are in a room with a door) and are getting a surprisingly hard amount of push back on this.

In Chicago, it’s mandatory for us everywhere but when you’re sitting at your desk. If someone comes near you, you need to put it on.

Hi all! So I made the switch to industry 8 weeks ago and took on a completely new role (I’ve got about 6.5 YOE.)I love the org and my new supervisor, however I got paired with a colleague who has made it clear she doesn’t enjoy working with me and has serious issues with my working style. She’s a very senior and experienced person so feels bad that she thinks so negatively of me already. I want to improve, but it will take some time as I’m still relatively new. (Cont)

Was hired into a company at a level that was more junior than my skills (Was out of work due to pandemic for a year). I’ve been at the company 5 months. We’re going through a reorg and my new position will really be leveraging my years of experience more so than other role. Is it appropriate to discuss a raise/adding senior to title? Or should I do the job and then prove myself then talk about raise. I have more experience than the senior members of my team.
