What's more disruptive?

The commotion of open-plan offices, or the endless zoom meetings during isolation-mandated Work From Home?

What is everyone’s remote work status? Fully remote? Hybrid? Fully in-office? I currently have one remote day a week but would like to advocate for more depending on market standards.

Struggling at work due to all that’s been going on and personal stuff. I’m relatively new to a firm and been working remotely since joining. Haven’t been able to contribute to meetings and feel very much in over my head, and I think my underperformance is very obvious. I’d love to find a mentor at work to get advice but it’s hard being remote and not knowing anyone. Should I be honest with my manager about how I’ve been feeling or should I just keep to myself?

Input appreciated! As a second year associate, I have a reasonable 1800 billable requirement and make $70k, but I don’t feel aligned with the firm. I want more WLB and don’t care about making partner. I am considering pivoting to a contracts analyst position (glorified doc review) because it’s 100% remote, same pay, has a 40 hour cap (rather than my current minimum!), flexible hours, and no billables or stress. Would this be a bad idea for my career?

Hi everyone!
Can you tell me how much you make and with how many YOE?

I know I'm being severely underpaid, I just want to know the range I SHOULD be making so I can bring it up with my employer so the eventual person in this position after me doesn't have to be in the same boat.

For reference: I make about $30k and I'm a (remote) graphic designer with 4 YOE and I do all the design work plus social media management for the company and outside clients. I also have multiple certifications. 🙃
