Quitting vs back to office

Here are some comments explaining how users voted:

A Facebook employee simply responded “I want to go back.”

A Capital One employee said, “I would love 2-3 days in the office and 2-3 days from home.”

A Google employee said “I just want to be able to buy a house for my family and not commute 1+ hour each way each day. I’m even willing to commute 1+ hour each way once or twice a week, but 3 or 4 gets to be soul crushing.”

Another Facebook employee said “That’s surprising to me. Literally everyone in my org responded to a survey that they want to be back in the office.”

Now, as companies try to decide the best way forward for their workers, it’s clear that many employees don’t want the old normal office back. Will the popular hybrid model of work be sustainable?
