I asked for work remote temporarily due to family obligations that recently changed my life drastically. Partner and I discussed and I was told I can go but my pay would be affected (no raise in pay). All my clients prefer electronic meetings and signing of returns, and all the staff ask their questions through teams, I set up video chats and share screen to help with those from other offices. My bet is the company is at a short fall and my evaluation will only match inflation only.

This is so unfortunate to hear. My firm has a hybrid concept. I help manage our tax department specifically and we don’t assess on remote since they lead with the remote structure . My department is now is at least 60% remote I believe and climbing as we grow our needs. We do not penalize since we promote inclusivity on all spectrums. Our culture is Family, Self, Firm. I’m 100% remote and come a few times a since I’m resource management.

But it got me thinking, if I decided to have kids. Then that too will affect my promotions and advancement in the company.

Doesn’t sit right with me. Why does working remotely temporarily is a negative if the work is still being done, if my productivity increases, etc.

Any thoughts or advice ? I just would like another perspective to be sure I’m not being too entitled.

Maybe this was a cop out to set up the grounds work for why my promotions or advancement will be lower than expected ?

If it was for 3 months then I think your company is in the wrong here. To have your entire years raise impacted by a temporary remote scenario is (in my opinion) absurd.

It sounds like your company is taking advantage of you. I wouldn’t change jobs now because it sounds like you have a lot of change happening already but I would consider it in the future. Definitely talk to other employees to see how they treat parents.

Good luck to you and your family and kudos to you and your husband for stepping up to help. I hope you end up at a company that appreciates you.

Your career should align with your life goals and it's reasonable to seek a balance that works for both you and your employer. If you feel that your contributions are not being adequately recognized. Might also be worth exploring opportunities elsewhere that better align with your values and career aspirations.

She said that she has recommended a merit-based raise and that our Creative Director agrees. She didn't specify how much of a raise. What is a typical merit-based raise for FCB/this industry?
