Removed -- for whatever reason I live in fear that somebody will find this who isn't supposed to. I'm a mess right now.

Is your compensation higher than your peers? Maybe there's different standards. Also a 10 person firm, are you the youngest? Again diff standards.

I'm the most junior attorney, and the newest hire. Maybe I got too swept away in how chill everybody else was?

I don't work from home that often, and I would say no more than any of my colleagues. We are all encouraged to work from home if we need to.
