A commute by public transport is very different from driving oneself as I did in America. My 90 minutes (after the company took up that Agile horseshit; it had been 30 minutes when I didn't have to attend a "morning standup") left me irritable and weary at a meeting that was a complete waste of time.

A lot of Zoom meetings? Major red flag. My last remote job had one per day and I hated it, mostly thanks to the subject of this article


whose needlessly loud voice sounded like a rock crusher.

Decline the meetings. If the company feels like checking up on you all day then you are employed by control freaks and should leave.
