    Curious what your current work location is like.

    It's been different every week. Recently probably 60% "in person" and 40% home, but some weeks have beemn100% home.

    A real fuck show trying to coordinate meeting times between China and the Middle East too, so the hours have been fucked.

    RIP. I don't envious you that's what I do in a past life. Fucking 9pm and 3am meetings.

    While I voted all of the above, I'm currently 90% home. Seems to be the pattern until July but probably could be longer given the vaccination mess and new variants.

    Been home full time since beginning of November, the week before that I was in the office 5 days a week.

    Theoretically I can go back to the office any time I want, I just don’t see the point until everyone is going back.

    Sitting in my office on teams or sitting at home on teams is same same to me, at least staying at home means no commute.

    Ive been in the office since the pandemic happened. My life hasn't changed much at all. There's only 3 people here so we don't interact much.

    Home since second week of March 2020. Going to continue to be home until at least September.

    After that, it's likely I'll go back to travelling a few times per month, with the rest being at home.

    HR sent an email to the staff yesterday saying we are most likely going to be working from home until April.

    I try to go to the office once every other week for a change of monotony, especially when it's warm so that I can go for a ride. But enjoying not having to go out when it's cold or snowing.

    I'd rather work in my office than in our living room here at home though

    Nothing has changed for me.

    I rarely go into the office, mostly work from home.

    Still meet with clients and visit job sites.

    Only thing I miss is not being able to go for lunch & dinner meetings at restaurants.
    Can’t wait for that to change.

    Been at home since March 13th 2020. Went into the office once to pick up a couple things, but that's it. Miss the travel and seeing clients in person for sure.

    Would be interested to see people's home set up.

    I was lucky enough to be back in the office full time June-Oct.

    I am kindof hoping I get called back into the office tbh

    Both me and wife have been WFH (different companies) since last March. I've been to the office a few times to do things not possible at home and we started the back to the office phase in Oct/Nov but that got shutdown from the new restrictions so it's back to square one with everyone WFH till further notice and wifes company is the same.

    I've been WFH since March 2020, are there days I'd like to get out of here? For sure, however being able to see and be with my 1 year old while she grows and develops has been incredible, I missed out on my oldest as I was in the office so didn't get to experience milestones like first steps, first words, etc

    But it's gotta be nice having that extra 6K a month in your pocket!

    On a serious note, I don't work from home enough even though I could. It's a split but there's no vote for that so, all of the above.

    I am based from home, but with my role I do occasionally have to go to sites (offices)

    I am transitioning to a new job though where I will be full time from home unless I need to do a site survey.

    WFH since March.
    Wife was WFH in March, back in the office in June, then WFH again in Dec. I think she's losing her sanity.

    My lunch/dinner expenses aren’t that much. Around $10-11k/year
