Landed my dream FAANG PM role but I’m really anxious about the return to office hybrid model vs the freedoms of working remote. What would you do in my shoes?

I would take a yoga class and some ashwaganda to help w/ the anxiety, and appreciate that I landed my dream gig.

Anticipation is usually the biggest driver of anxiety, most cases stressing about it is much worse than the reality of it. You’ll be fine - you got hired for a reason

Firstly, congratulations on getting the dream job!! Secondly, I think you'll start getting used to it after a few weeks in. Just like how we got used to remote work, I'm sure you'll get used to hybrid working - it's you're dream job for a reason!

Going back to a fang office is much better than regular plebian officies with the amenities.

Just get over it and start meeting people in person, it’s the default state

Hello!

Typical! Research shows the average salary as 151k and I'd like to push for closer to 140k. Do I keep my mouth shut until after the interview or do I say something now? I don't want to dissuade them but I also don't want to waste time. I make about 110k now

Interviewing for strategy at a big tech company and got a take home case that asks for (1) POV on future of tech (2) competitive landscape (3) acquisition recommendation (4) industry-specific strategy (5) a stock pick and (6) investment prioritization for the company. Never done one of these before but this seems like an insane ask to do in a week with a full time job. Is it just me?
