Is there a polite way to ask the SM if we can work out of our city office instead of the sad suburban office that’s closest to him and the partner? Majority of the team lives way closer to the city office. I chose my home office and did not expect to have to travel just to work with my team in the office. It’s one thing to travel to client site (obviously part of the job), but another to have to drive out just to work with my team. I wish that would’ve been communicated to me before I started.

Home office is best office. Retirement is even better.

To be clear it seams like a pretty reasonable request, but it feels like so many people higher up are jaded and will immediately be like “look at this entitled young person.”

I’d debate digging into corporate policy and determine if I could charge time and mileage to the engagement if it’s not my home office.

At least you get that, and if they bring it up, just state your rationale and that it was policy…

Ask or you’ll never know! I’d just ask “hey is it okay if I start working out of the main office? It’s a lot closer to me. Let me know, thank you!” It’s not like you’re asking for a raise so no need to be afraid to ask. Worst they can say is no. Or fire you.

This actually happened to me at my old firm and we compromised: 2 days in the office closest to me, 2 in the one closest to them and Fridays at home. You could try this and see if they agree.

Anyone ever fake a covid exposure to not go to a work event or team bonding event? A few of us at work aren’t thrilled about flying to HQ in a few weeks and we’re job searching anyway. At a recent event a few people said they’re “sick” & attended over Teams.

Our leadership says catching delta is “mild” and we can do “more research”. They won’t require vax cards. Some of our live in partners either don’t have insurance or have health concerns like asthma. So, coworkers don’t want to go either 😵

Hi all,

Please suggest.
I've 3 yoe in techno-functional domain.
I wish to go into technical (development) profile now, but not as a fresher. I want to continue with 3 yoe.
But the issue is, I have no (dev) project to show in interview as an 3 yoe person.

I've learned Java, springboot, restfulAPIs, kafka, but still hesitant to go for interviews as I do not have projects to discuss.

I shall be very thankful to you if you help me here.
How/where can i go to make projects now to justify 3yoe?

I’m a project manager with 7 years of PM experience in all kinds of industries. I’m currently in construction, but absolutely hate it.

I know junior associates feel the pain of being micromanaged and told exactly what to do all the time, but honestly, enjoy it while it lasts. It’s a whole new kind of pain when the partner ignores all your emails, never forwards you or copies you to keep you in the loop, never tells you what to do, and still gets mad at you when you are “behind”, or “get it wrong” or ask client/other side for something that partner got 3 weeks ago but never forwarded to you. 😂😭
