I wish my company cared less about “optics” and just valued good work. Literally had some one tell me it’s bad optics to WFH right now. It’s not like there’s a pandemic or anything 🙄

Uhhh, I think it’s bad optics *not* to WFH right now. Where are you based?

Chicago, so it’s a major city too 😓

We are not essential workers. It’s bad optics if after a year of successful WFH stories across all verticals, someone is still seeing such growing/adjustment pains that they think in person is mandatory for good work. Tell that chucklehead to get with the times or get left behind

I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.

I’m all about that work from home life. However it is insulting and unprofessional when a colleague who is in the office blows off a scheduled meeting with you when you are virtual as they bumped into another colleague in the office. Anyone else noticing issues like this now that we are in this hybrid mode. How do you address it?

Planning on having kids and because we'll work from home a lot still need office space. I grew up in burbs and it wasn't so bad because I lived walking distance to train station into the city & nice downtown. 800k!

Back on the market and I’m coming to find two things: 1. Less desirable agencies are the ones who want people back on-site soon, with no wiggle room for remote work. 2. These same agencies want to pay salaries based on COL in the city where the agency is based even if you’re working/living from another market in the interim. Example: Midwest based agency paying Midwest salaries to folks living in places like NY, SF, LA. 🧐🧐🧐🧐
