London office we’re all working like nothing has happened, no precautionary measures, just that they’ll ‘keep us informed’! It’s worrying tbh given other companies are being more proactive. Hope they don’t regret it...

Right? I guess they don’t care about the health of workers until it’s too late

How much maternity leave did you all take? I get 12 weeks paid but I’m thinking about taking additional unpaid leave. I feel uneasy about coming back to work after 12 weeks but curious to hear everyone’s experience (and if you regret not taking more at the time). Trying to figure out my ML plan and how much time off to take.

Junior attorney at a big law. Ever since COVID and WFH, the firm requires us to release our hours every day. If we don’t, we get called out or worse, get treated as if we didn’t work any hours. It’s an easy task and I never fell behind releasing my time, but psychologically, I feel so restless because we get staffed on how much we billed the day prior and this system fails to take into account the extreme ebb and flow of transactional group. Will daily release become the norm in big law?

I love the company I work at but they are forcing everyone to return to office after two years working fully remote and the most successful eight quarters the company has had in years. People are leaving left and right forcing me and other team members to pick up the slack. For many reasons I do not want to return to office and they are standing firm on their policy. It has forced me to consider other opportunities. Anyone have any recommendations on remote opportunities?

My division has a PD day for teachers while the students are having a remote learning day. On the itinerary for our workday (for which we were expected to come IN) includes a one hour VIRTUAL webinar (on content that could be covered in 20 minutes total, yet this is our 4th hour so far), and FOUR hours allotted for department discussions of ONE lesson that was taught using the content of the virtual webinar. I have never felt so professionally insulted as I do this year!

Just spitballing here. If agencies really do allow for full remote next year, what would stop someone from just working from Paris? Anything? Cheaper cost of living than NYC but still a NYC paycheck. 10-6 work hours become 4pm-midnight which isn’t awful and most of your day is free to hang out around the city. Just no fancy dinners or nightlife. Is there a big flaw I’m missing?

How do y’all set boundaries in consulting WFH? Both boundaries in 1. time management and 2. personal relationship boundaries. 1.

Is it ok to be sarcastic? Is it ok when my managers ask me about my dating life etc.
