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 kids (18, 15) school has an in-school option. Back in November they asked for decisions remote vs in person and at that time I was okay with them going back. Now that cases have jumped up I’m struggling sending them back. 18 yr old prefers remote, 15 he old doesn’t do well remote. I just about lost it when I had to moonlight as teacher. Part of me wants them in school but am I doing the right thing or potentially contributing to community spread?

My wife is pregnant. Do the general courtesies of telling your manager/work beginning of 3rd trimester still apply during covid/work from home?

Let’s call out the scam now: return to the office policies are asking for more of your time for the exact same pay. Record billables over the year and a half have shown that associates are indefinitely more efficient working at home. If you want me to come to the office, lower your billable expectation or pay me more. Simple economics. We have leverage, let’s exert it here.
