I just started a remote position as an individual contributor. In orientation and mentioned several times in training, it was expressed that we are expected to be on video during meetings. In practice, so far, no one uses video. This company is going through a huge growth spurt, from 40 to nearly 600 at last count, so most people are new.
My manager (also newish) was wishy-washy about it when asked directly. None of my direct teammates use video. So far none of the management uses video. In calls with external clients, the external clients nearly always use video while the people in my company do not.
Do I just buck the trend and keep my video on? Or do I go with the flow as the new(er) guy?
