Live in Nome but firm office is in Anchorage. Needless to say, > 500 mile dog sled commute can be a bit of a bear.

@D1: I saw an assignment posted once in Anchorage. They were asking someone to relocate there for 18 months. A bit aggressive.

There are a couple people in our office who live 150-200mi away. They're present on Fridays about as often as the folks who live a 15 min walk away

I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?
