Hi. I have a question. In a world where COVID is under control, how would you feel if your companies went back to being fully in the office? But maybe others were adopting a hybrid model- some days remote, some days in the office. Would it make you want to work elsewhere? How important is being able to work remote (at a location of your choice, not at client /travelling) a few days a week to your job satisfaction?

About to get an offer to move to a health agency. Anyone else make that move? How was it? I’ve lost major interest in the hustle glorified at traditional agencies, and have a fam so need better WLB. Realizing regular agencies aren’t made to work around family life…more like the other way around. Even when setting boundaries you get comments and pressure…working til midnight every night to “make up” for having to log off between 6 and 9 every night isn’t a good balance for me.
