@OP being unassigned this time of the year is no bueno. Means the office is over staffed and does not have enough work to support all employees (especially gearing up for one of the busiest times of the year). How long have you been on he bench for?

Busy season doesn't start until after the holidays. It's slow in my office

I'm an intern and im busier than most level 2's (cheap labor)

Thanks for the insight bro

We are currently building the plan for the hybrid model we will follow mid October. (No specific date yet.)

If you have an AB model do you deliver the same content to your students each day, regardless of them being remote or in person? Or is the lesson cycle one that begins on the first day you teach in person for each group? This second model seems complicated.

Does anyone have any experience with the relocation clawback provision recently? I took the payout option and have been preparing to move, but just found out I was approved for permanent remote work.

For employees who eventually did not end up moving within the year (but were still with Google) did the clawback provision still get exercised?
