“Work from home if you want.” Translates to “work from home if you want to be judged.” Come on IPG, call it. Keep your people safe. They’re getting scared.

I’m at an IPG agency too. I don’t care anymore. I’ve been WFH since Tuesday (as has my team) and I’m going to keep doing so until all other sensible agencies are back to normal. Our jobs are not even close to important enough to put my or others health at risk. Getting as much work, if not more, done from home.

Honestly, I don’t care anymore who’s judging. Echoing what Art Director 1 says above- not worth risking my health (or my family’s). Besides, WFH is often way more efficient.

The work from home situation also made me become less focused and I feel increasingly guilty and restless.

Anyone started antidepressants since this pandemic/wfh started?

My wife told me that it feels like I’m trying to change her by grasping for straws (pushing us to travel/hike) that I think will make this better. After doing some googling I think I might be suffering from depression.

Wonder if people who claim to be more effective and efficient thanks to WFH and wish to never go back to the office are the same people whose jobs are more likely to get off-shored/ outsourced? At the end of the day, if it's just a transactional, "follow-the script" kind of job requiring minimal interaction/relationship/collaboration with other team members, why would the companies be incented to keep paying salaries + benefits when they can just as easily ship these jobs overseas?
