What’s your WFH peeve? Mine is my roommates loud typing - sounds like they’re trying to break the keyboard 🤯

Mine is simple: thinking while I am home, working, on calls, etc that I am not “really working” and am available to:

See who is at the door?
Identify this “funny noise the car is making”
Help her fix lunch
Start a “we never talk during the day” conversation
Walk in, stare at me during a call and ask “what’s wrong”

This was never an issue on Friday’s, as this was normal....every other day, now it’s the new normal!

Are you me?

No knock on the closed door, just walks into my office and can clearly hear I’m talking on a call, “oh are you on a call???” And if she wants me to help with something and I say I have a call in 2 minutes...”can you reschedule?” All I can do is laugh at times.

My husband still goes into the world for work and has subconcious expectations that I have dinner planned and prepped and the house clean while I "work" from home. If he gets home and I haven't planned out dinner or if there are dishes in the sink, he'll passive aggressively slam doors or cupboards and cuss under his breathe. Then proceed to pout for a few hours by himself. All this happening while I am STILL working. I've had enough.

Over-scheduling of team review and discussion meetings. I’ve been on daily wrap up calls that have been WAY too long bc it seems like everyone is just reporting out as much as they can to prove they’ve been working on something during the day. Am I️ being too naive to think I️ don’t need someone else’s play-by-play each hour? I️ trust they did their work, I️ don’t want to sit in on 1+ hour calls to hold people accountable

They’re both finance positions with 2 YOE.

Do people think that remote roles limit upward mobility?
It seems that remote work is generally viewed as desirable given the flexibility it provides and the possibility of receiving high TC while living in a LCOL area. I wonder though if joining a company remote will ultimately make it harder to gain more responsibility and receive higher TC. I also wonder whether there is anything that prevents a company from changing their remote policy, thus forcing a move. Maybe this is too new to know.

Here's a small story.

It has been 7 years, today I earn 20 times what I earned at first job for the first year. In our crazy industry I am sure I am not alone, if you have a similar story, do share. Below is the chart annual earning (as per my ITR), 2022 is projected
