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.

I would not consider working for 1 of the big 4 banks a 9-5 job you’ll end up working before 9am and after 5pm. I’ve worked for 2 of the big 4 banks worked outside the 9-5.

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.

Hi ladies! Need some advice on what to do here: For context: I live in Texas and work from home. I put in a request with my apartment to fix the ongoing air issues in my master bedroom.

When I became old enough to make enough money to buy nice holiday gifts, my mom started asking me for money so she can buy what she wants. It’s always an appropriate amount, but she knows I don’t like when she does this because I don’t think there’s anything genuine about this. For the past couple years, I’ve just allowed this to happen. Well today after dinner, she asks me to hurry up and come over to her computer. And she asks me if it’s okay if I pay for some athletic wear…
