I've been working remotely all year and have never gone into the office except for the occasional Friday. Well unless by office you mean the pool... I'm there most days.

Yes

I usually go in twice a week but it's an hour drive and really no point to be there all the time.

Yes to mix things up and stay connected

Every once in awhile

No

For lunch meetings. Then I'd drive home. It's $30/day to park there in my city. No thanks.

I do work remote mostly and I don't go in

I had a remote project that only required me to go to client site once a week. I'd go into the office to mix it up - or if there was a sector or team meeting or training. A few times a month works for me.

Why are you consultants that work on PROFESSIONAL SERVICES if you want to sit at home and not be around people?

I have been mostly working from home for 2 years - I only travel 25-50%. My teams local director is a loser, doesn't encourage team camaraderie, i.e., going into the office. I just started going into the office to network with other teams. Parking here is $20/day, but I just park in another company's lot.

This upcoming year our school district is trying early release every Wednesday. I find it difficult to cover all the standards in a high school math class, and now I am concerned with having to modify/reduce our curriculum. It will take 10-15 minutes out of the period on Wednesdays. Do you think it will change what we can teach? A colleague suggested a flipped classroom. I teach in an affluent area that only spent a couple weeks remote learning for all last year. Thoughts on flipped classroom?

I think the problem with consultants is you are overpaid from the very start because you generate revenue, even with zero skills and are willing to travel. Over time that evolves to arrogance because you think you know more than your clients when the reality is your sample set is quite small. I have spent equal time on both sides and would counsel you to be careful in a remote post COVID world because we are all realizing we have more employee capacity than we thought.
