DLaunch (new hire orientation) is returning to in-person soon. I have a chance to give feedback to leadership- if you were a virtual hire (i.e. not in the same city as a USDC) would you want to travel to DLaunch in 1 of the 3 center locations so you could meet other USDC professionals (potentially some from your OP)? Or would you rather attend DLaunch in the office nearest to you (which could include travel or not, depending where you live) with professionals across all 7 talent models?
Started working a week after graduating last May. Was on track to be one of the top staff performers and then COVID hit. Since working from home I am one of the lowest performers. Anxiety and stress are crippling my ability to succeed. I have social anxiety which makes wfh communication extremely difficult. Managers - how much patience would you have with someone who was doing well pre-pandemic but has been struggling ever since? Should I start planning for a new job? (In case I get fired)

I’m just throwing this out there and I think it might be a common thought. I’m a mom of two (ages 5 and 3) and work full time out of the house in government making $103K. Job is not flexible in that it’s 8-5 with an hour lunch break butt in chair in the office work. Zero options to deviate or work from home. I have a 30-40 minute commute each way. I’m tired of feeling like the rat race and like I’m just paying someone else to hang out with my children. Anyone else feel like that?
