Is it just me or is work so much less interesting when WFH? I am single, live with my very chill dog, and I don’t have a ton of distractions at home (i.e. family), and I still can’t focus or feign interest in my work. Not that I am dying to be on the road or at a client site again but I feel like it’s generally a more positive environment at least when I am in the room with my team. I am probably just missing the in-person social interaction even though I am not super chummy with my colleagues.

Yup. I don’t exactly lust for the normal team-environment, but holy shit it’s so easy for anything and everything at home to grab my attention.

Yeah, I have stopped caring for a myriad of reasons and it’s pretty sad. I also feel like I get distracted because I watch CNBC or local news in the background at work so it’s not eerily quiet and I feel like I’m still attached to the outside world, but it doesn’t help me get work done lol.

Is it normal to get basically zero feedback? Brand new associate working at a mid sized firm. Been there a few months now and firm is still WFH. I get a fairly consistent amount of work.

I’ve drafted memos to clients and some briefs that have been sent/submitted nearly verbatim, so I assume that’s a good sign.
