Have any of your firms discussed a flexible WFH policy post-pandemic? I’m happier & my hours are through the roof. I want to approach management with policy ideas for people like me who are thriving.
With WFH, I like to take quick naps (15 min) 2-3 times in between my schedule. I have been working very long hours (14-15 hours a day). I will miss my naps, the healthy snacks (I try to eat salads) and the quick workouts the most when wfh gets over. What will you miss the most?
Any strategists interested in a freelance gig with a small newspaper publishing group? They’re looking for research design help to optimize their print/digital offering. In midwest, but remote is fine

You'd think I'd be used to waking up alone every morning by now! The loneliest part of WFH. :(
By close of eyes is not a reasonable time for any deliverable to be due. You work from home not 24/7. Let’s normalize standard working hours; if work isn’t done within eight to nine hours in day then it’s time for evaluate systems, if all those Zoom calls were necessary and staff utilization.
Anyone else questioning getting an MBA in light of the pandemic and shifting sentiment on remote work? I started a job that’s fully remote and flexible. It’s in a fast moving industry and I feel like taking 2 years away can make me miss out on expected growth that will take place. 2 year grind and then working at some 9-5+ job that won’t be flexible and will likely have to go in office once things are back to normal. With current job I’m making good money and have more personal time.
2nd job? I’m currently working as a financial analyst at a startup. Most of my day is free and I feel like I can take on another remote job. Has anyone done this here?

Anyone use a curved monitor? Pros/cons? I won’t use it for gaming, but there is a sweet 35in one on major sale today. Thinking about using the WFH subsidy on that and keyboard/mouse. Other good monitor recommendations welcome!
