Is it possible to find a 6 figure, FULLY REMOTE, solid 9-5, no work over the weekend job? 2.5 YOE. Tired of consulting and want to see if there are any options out there.

I applied for jobs around the country even though they weren’t listed as remote. When I got to interview phase, then I inquired about remote option (but I was fine to travel to headquarters as needed) Two of the companies I interviewed with we’re OK with this. I start my new job in two weeks - remotely

Congrats!!!

Booz Allen. Won’t be fully remote but can be mostly. On rough weeks, you’ll work 40hrs. Yes, 40hrs during busy weeks.

Where are you at now? Of course it can be totally dependent on project/team/firm but when I was at Booz there were plenty of projects that were true 9-5s. When I was at a smaller firm 12 hour days were the norm

Presales jobs pretty much meet that category.

Actuary. Sometimes less than a 9-5 if I look at how my SO works

Are you me? I think my husband worked for 2 hours today.

My old company (Cigna) and many startups def offer this, fully remote, (depending on the role and how you play up your experience/skills) 6figs, no weekend work.

And just as a caveat - that was just my personal experience; my whole team and so many other colleagues are and have been permanently remote for years at the company, of all ages and in all states, and in all ranks. They also had the opportunity to meet up in person to a local or their manager’s office (paid for by the company).

If you want to be remote now is the time to try and lock that down. Lots of companies, even non-tech, are open to remote roles because of the pandemic and the tight labor market. Both of which will change at some point.

Back on the market and I’m coming to find two things: 1. Less desirable agencies are the ones who want people back on-site soon, with no wiggle room for remote work. 2. These same agencies want to pay salaries based on COL in the city where the agency is based even if you’re working/living from another market in the interim. Example: Midwest based agency paying Midwest salaries to folks living in places like NY, SF, LA. 🧐🧐🧐🧐
