I live far from my house and hence I take 5pm cab. My senior says I waste 1.5 hrs in cab during evening. However I go home and work always. How to tackle this situation

Ask your senior if they want you to work from home. If yes just chill and work from home.


Did you tell him that you go home and work?


@ZS 3, author has used 'he' in their sentence

Distance is always supposed to be checked while hiring, in your case was it discussed at the time of hiring ? Nevertheless have a candid talk with your Manager and tell that you are working from home post reaching, if there are any deliverables that get delayed due to your transit time, you may have to start looking at an alternative like work from home or another role, in your case both parties have a genuine concern, try to talk it out and have a win- win situation


Waste? Coming to the office for such seniors is a waste.

You live far from your house? What do you mean waste 1.5 hours?? This post is so badly written, how to help you buddy??

So I need to make assumptions? Read again.. I live far from my house.. you could gauge.. what is the consultants problem? Is it that there is a gap in the associate’s work- then that is a very valid problem AC sir.. may you get the OP as associate so that the eod that’s supposed to come at 7 comes at 8:30 because you are the one who has to review it.. I understand the problem is genuine but it needs to be discussed clearly.. I am a consultant who has to review it after the AC- imagine my plight receiving your output at 9:30 because your A sent it at 8:30.. then you complaint Cs don’t do anything..

Just go online on the way

Yeah.. You rightly said.. Try to have a candid conversation with him, although it might look like he is not very open right now for conversation. Think about what could be a possible problem and go to him with some sort of proposal such that he is able to guide you through. And if it about something else, then have a candid conversation such that you both are able to pally up and really try to understand what is bothering him. But go with a mindset you might not be able to get that time of 5 to 7. Or you can try going by cabs such that you are able to work during that time or stay in company accomodation here for days when there is urgent work. However the problem is manageable. So don't worry. All the best

I feel like side hustle culture is way too celebrated in Tech. It’s great to work on startups in your free time if that’s what you want, but I think our industry needs to a better job emphasizing WLB and normal ambition levels. Hit me in the comments with your thoughts.
