Looking for guidance (post-offer) on how to handle commuting to the office from a rural area. Had initially planned to do 4 days/week (arrive night before Day 1 and leave evening of Day 4), but pressure rising to do more.
Initially was that policy was 3 days/week in office, but more encouraged, and now thats creeping up in favour of culture/learning etc. to 5/5.
Am concerned that the 5/5 in office will be necessary for success/advancement, which wasn't the initial plan during applying (moving from industry to consulting). Had accepted travelling for clients, but not being in office 90/100% of time for sake of it.
Can I set boundaries without getting things off to a wrong start? Or is my perspective the problem?
