Hello everyone! The company I work for has recently decided to bring everyone back to the office almost full time (4 days/week). This wasn’t part of the deal when I signed the offer 6 months ago and it forces me to re-launch a job search for a fully remote or hybrid role (2 days/week work from the office max). I’m a Demand Planner with 5+ yrs CPG experience. If anyone here could help me with job referrals or direct me to fully remote/hybrid job postings it would be great. Thanks for your help!

I would love some women’s input on this. I work for a fortune 10 company and have been there about 3 years. I am on a team that started as a small group of tenured individuals (about 25) and has doubled in size in the past 2 years. Many people who have been around for 15+ years were promoted solely due to tenure and not based on skill or leadership abilities. New peoples promotions and growth opportunities are looking bleak. Has anyone been in this situation before? How did you deal with it?
