To those hired during the COVID-WFH era, how have you adjusted to the work, team culture and company culture?

Some background on me, I got my first job outside of college during this wfh era. It was nice in the beginning, but I feel like it’s slowly chipping on my productivity.

Thoughts?

*edit, I’m super thankful for this job in light of declining job market. It’s just that connecting via webcam with coworkers/team has been quite difficult and lowers my morale

Yes, it’s been hard to connect with people and I’m sorry this is your first experience. I have daily check in meetings with my team that always allows for a little banter every day where slowly I feel like personalities come across and people joke around. The company does try really hard to put on fun little events, trivia contests, give away tons of prizes, it’s cute in a not overkill way and I always try to participate to throw my face out there. I’ve also done virtual coffee dates with folks just to block some time and pick their brain/get to know them, which has helped with building relationships. I’m not as close as I’d be with people if we were face to face, but slowly over time I feel I’m starting to click with them.

I've been a PM at three companies and worked with four engineering leads. Two of them were fantastic partners and really approached the PM-engineering relationship as one of equals with complementary roles. The other two were arrogant and had convinced leadership that they should be directing product direction, relegating PMs to, basically, a project manager role. Which situation is more common in your experience? How do you identify this dynamic during the interview process to avoid the latter?
