WFH means taking frequent breaks throughout the day for your sanity. I usually take a 10 minute break every hour or so. I also leave the work area for lunch, even if that is only going to another room.

I know she doesn’t mean to make it about her, but it does frustrate me. I don’t want to get resentful but im starting to. Any advice or perspective?

For the past 2 years I’ve been scrambling for digital projects at Accenture and even took management and data projects (neither I was qualified to do, but the teams needed help) to avoid too much time on the bench and getting fired- I’ve been working for almost 4 yrs but I only just got a 20% raise to $85k. When I see people here talk about making way way more for less experience, I wonder if I’m being underpaid. And how would I start a negotiation for a raise or look for other opportunities??
