Dealing with the same decision. Currently I’m 100% WFM for the foreseeable future in a software dev role at a bank. I have an offer on the table to go with a big defense contractor for $40k more but hybrid. 2 days a week in office. “In office” means a 3 hour commute one way. Not sure what to do.

My firm recently announced that they were beginning a reservation system for hoteling starting February of 2022 for offices . We were told to clear out our offices by December 31,2022 . The lease is not up for renewal until June 2024 at which point they will look to reduce their office space due to a hybrid work model . My issue is what incentive do I have to make a reservation to go to an office when I can simply continue work from home hassle free. Any Thoughts and comments?

Any advice?

Mileage expense for airport drop off? I live about 65 miles from the airport in a rural area without Uber or Lyft. There are a few local services that do airport runs, but they book up in advance. My wife and I primarily work from so we only have 1 car. For a recent trip the car service was only available for the return airport transfer so my wife dropped me off at the airport. I’m planning to expense the round trip mileage - it would still be cheaper than the ride service. Thoughts?
