I was wondering what they were planning to do with all that real estate and salad bars.

Sort of a tangent but I’m posting anyway. At first this felt shocking to me. However, I keep reading how the option for remote work is going to continue to make it hard to close the wage gap between men and women. I have to agree with that. My husband is in the office every day even though his office is at 25%. I, a woman, do not want to go to the office because wfh is really helping me keep all the balls in the air with our house and kids. I know if I chose to stay remote, people back in the office (probably more males than females) will be selected for higher profile projects because they are getting the exposure. Do I think it’s wrong they’ll get the projects? No. Do I think this will impact number of women going for partner? Yes. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

Think outside the box. Large companies should used some of the saved office space to create in-house daycares to encourage people to come to the office. Will help solve so many issues, and parents of any gender can say hi to their kids between status meetings.

My husband is at Google and his understanding is that they’re requiring employees work in the office three days per week, and you only have to apply for more than 14 consecutive days. So, they’re still allowing WFH twice a week.

A2—that’s awful. Most firms are doing remote SA programs. What market are you?

Anyone from Google in here that can give more insight? Curious about this

Protip: WFH in the morning, then stroll in after lunch. You’ll not only beat rush hour traffic, it won’t count as a WFH day 😉

I really wish it were possible as a Senior to take a "quiet" or remote day every week and focus on work uninterrupted. I get that it would be a challenge for staff/mgrs but think it would be worth it.
