I did 1:20 hour of driving each way for more than a year and it drove me crazy. All the audiobooks in the world could not save my sanity.

WFH once or twice a week is also not something i would recommend. Sooner or later the lack of face time catches up...

If the social norm is work from home, no issue. If it’s not, I’d recommend grinding it out and working like your peers while you’re building a reputation as a highly-valued new member of the team. You don’t want your peers to be grumbling about how the new hire gets special treatment.

Best use of the drive-time: podcasts and Audible

Uh...people in LA do this all the time. An hour commute is not considered radical here. It can easily take an hour+ at rush hour to get to Downtown LA, which is only 16 miles from home for me.
