CMV: WFH Makes Banking so Much More Bearable
I keep seeing posts about WFH being terrible - while I agree and have experienced many of the negatives of WFH as a 1st year (less communication, learning, relationships), I believe the positives severely out way them (was in office as intern). IMO, there is nothing more depressing then being in the office at 1am and practicing your Spanish with the night shift janitor in your building who is changing out the bag in the trashcan under your desk.
Then Uber home, hang up your clothes, spend 30? minutes doing normal human post work things and go to bed. Then wake up, shower / shave and commute back to the office. Oh its not a busy day? Have fun falling asleep at your desk pretending to look busy reading the WSJ.
With WFH I can make breakfast while on a call at 10am, go for a run, do laundry, and most importantly sit at my desk in sweatpants with bedhead because I woke up 5 minutes before I was needed. When I was getting cranked 100+ hours for a stretch, I could log off work and be sleeping in 25 minutes - that was insanely beneficial for me and I'm not sure I would have made it if I was going in the office during that time.
Are you people crazy or am I just lazy?
