4 months into a new job and need to refocus on WFH work life balance. Any tips or suggestions are welcome!
My team never used to have lunch meetings, but then a new person joined and started setting lunch meetings (and new folks who joined after him follow suit). I decline and propose a new time that is NOT lunch and when everyone is free -_- Thoughts on how to handle this/call it out? My work life balance is pretty 💩 because of COVID/work from home so having an actual lunch break would be nice
How is deloitte for women as a consulting firm ? How is work life balance in deloitte consulting? Does team support work from home? Or there are lot of traveling. Confused whether I should join or not ?
Hi! Can anyone talk to me about what it’s like to be an analyst at Salesforce ?? ie culture, work-life balance, base pay, WFH experience
Any practical tips on managing burnout? I have been procrastinating a lot lately for no reason. Help a bro here...WFH is driving me crazy. I almost procrastinated posting this.
Anyone know of any Chicago firms (or firms elsewhere that will hire an Illinois licensed attorney) that doesn’t care if you want to work from home permanently? Preferably with good work life balance (I’m feeling burnt out in addition to wanting to wfh). Would take a pay cut and am fine with boutiques, whatever. Currently M&A/Finance (mostly finance/lending though) practice area. Thanks in advance!!

So bankers are getting Pelotons or even bonuses (10k for Moelis, 20k for citi analysts /associates) for too many work hours and the burnout feeling. Pretty sure most consultants feel the same way. Anything EY is considering doing to boost the WFH burnout morale. Can uncle Mitch buy us all a peloton to compete with industry standards
Thinking about leaving the first job that gave me a chance. Been here a couple years, but I’m thinking it’s time to move on. How do I know if it’s the right move or if I’m just burnt out from lack of work/life balance caused by WFH? I’m so nervous to jump.
Is anyone else feeling extreme anxiety about the inevitable return to the office? I’m a junior and can’t wrap my head around how horrible it will be for QOL. It is one thing to bill 14+ hour days when you have no commute, but the thought of balancing a commute and getting any sleep is stressing me out. I am more efficient with WFH and I am afraid I will burnout quicker. Also, I will miss my dog and time with my spouse will take a hit.
What has your company done (or would you like them to do) to help with work life balance during all the covid WFH craziness? I’m joining a task force on this topic and would love to hear any ideas people have!
Hi Fellow EA’s- polling our group to see what companies offer good work/life balance in our role? Ideally with flexibility to work from home permanently or most of week? Thanks!
I do not mind working in the office but the COMMUTE kills me and my work life balance. With a commute I will not see my kid on weekdays and will spend an extra 6-15 hours in traffic each week. I have been WFH since the pandemic began and am hoping to continue WFH 90% of the time indefinitely. Aside from my personal desires I think flexible WFH options is the humane option for employers to make as it benefits work/life balance and lessens environmental impact. What are your thoughts?
I’m finding it so hard to be motivated at work. I think it’s a mix of wfh burnout, living at home and not socializing/doing anything new, scope creep on my project leading to long hours, and being intellectually bored. What keeps you in this job? What has motivated you to stay?
WFH burnout anyone? I can’t keep working around the clock and paying for my own vacations at the same time.
I see a lot of sentiment on here about consultants struggling to be productive the longer wfh goes because of burnout. Honestly, I don't feel nearly as productive as I was when we were on site working 8-8 with the need to appear productive due to 'optics'. With the burnout from wfh, consultants are starting to be valued less highly by industry?
How to get over WFH burnout? Having trouble staying motivated when it’s pretty mouth guaranteed I’m working until 8:30 pm on a daily basis
Hi everyone! Hitting an all time rut with work motivation and burnout, with very long workdays (generally 7:30 am - 8 or 9 pm). Any tips that have helped anyone with this? Podcasts, books, songs or anything else that helps bring back the inspiration and drive? I am having a difficult time paying attention, being productive & just feeling overall detachment. Think there’s some low grade depression at play w/ the WFH situation & shorter/colder days, but I don’t have much control over my hours
I started public accounting at a big4 this past January, right before everyone started wfh. I’ve had very messy clients and back to back to back year ends... I’m really feeling the burnout and don’t know how much longer I can last. I have two back to back busy seasons coming up again in January and April but after that I think I’ll be looking for other jobs...I know my issues may seem trivial compared to a seniors workload but I want to know what my options are if I have < 2 years exp.
Am thinking of paying to go to a coworking space for the remainder of our semi-permanent WFH; working from my tiny apartment has been awful for my mental health and work/life balance. Has anyone had an exceptional experience or have advice? 🙏🏻
Is it possible to set boundaries at work after you’ve had none? Does it have to be gradual or just overnight your schedule becomes a fixed 9 to 5, M-F? What’s most effective for 1. you so you don’t go back to old ways, and 2. for retraining your coworkers and management on your level of availability? For more context, ever since wfh started, I’ve just been throwing myself into work and it’s made me miserable and tired. Want to re-establish a healthy work life balance.
Need help explaining to sig other (and myself) why I work so much. I feel lk I’ve been exposed now that I wfh and he can see how long the hours are. I make excuses not to hang out cuz I need to get work done. I’m not unhappy, I love this job. Sometimes the hours seem ridiculous and unreasonable but I feel driven and engaged. But am I just spiraling? Is work life balance really that important? Am I just not that into my sig other?
Maybe it’s burnout from a job where all the cool work benefits you could brag to your friends about are gone bc you wfh now and don’t have access to your cool office and now you work around the clock because there’s no separation between home and work and your agency has done next to nothing to help with that balance and you’ve billed more hours per week than you ever had and now your friends and family are starting to comment on your workload, health, and demeanor. Maybe it’s Maybelline ✨
For the last four weeks or so of WFH I’ve been making it to my desk around 7:30/8am and working basically without a break—lunch at desk- but cannot maintain momentum past like 6:30/7:30pm. Most of the day is billable work, but I cannot bring myself to finish outstanding assignments after 8pm, but then feel so guilty when I’m not working past that time. Am I burnout or fucked up? (Also I hate this gig & am not in it for the long haul, just hate not turning things quickly)
Has your agency taken any REAL unexpected or outside the box steps to help their employees fight burnout during covid? How do y’all handle recognition days and such for people who put in a lot of extra hours? Any agencies do away with timesheets while WFH? Looking for inspiration.
Corporate first year in biglaw here. Since wfh began, I’ve been extremely unmotivated to do anything. I’m not sure if I’m depressed or just unhappy with my job. I really enjoy some of the work, but biglaw expectations can still seem so trivial. Especially now. Do any other first years relate? Do any experienced attorneys feel a wfh burnout? Work is slow, but I procrastinate so much. I can’t make myself care, though. Generally feel very off. I worry people are noticing and I’ll be fired.
Anyone else historically a star performer and being told performance is subpar since COVID? Not sure if it’s the additional stress/ distractions at home with a 10 mo old, wfh burnout/lack of motivation or what, but most importantly, wondering how to get past it and bounce back?

WFH burnout is real and starting to blend all the days together. How are all y'all pushing through to remain productive and positive on a personal level?
As I’m sure many have experienced, I’m getting dangerously close to what I would consider burnout. I’m experiencing fairly substantial anxiety, which leads to procrastination, which leads to me ultimately pulling all-nighters. It’s a vicious cycle. I’m so thankful for COVID-19 WFH, but it also means I can’t ever unplug and a vacation is obviously a nonstarter this year. How do I pull myself out of this mess?
Any advice for achieving work/life balance in advertising? Or has anyone left the industry to pursue better work/life balance, and successfully found it? If so, what was your path? I’ve been at couple of agencies during my career, but inevitably end up grinding myself into the ground no matter where I end up. The WFH during quarantine has pushed things to a new level where it feels like I need to change something to sustain my mental health & relationships.
Will firms do anything to address the increased burnout burden of less traveling and more wfh that will be the new normal?
Hey ppl, new community mgr here. We’re starting out on Slack workspace for all of our clients, hope to expand to a community platform next year. The main focuses are on client retention and account expansion. Anyone have tips on the type of posts/content that drive discussion?
One thing Covid has taught me, sort of, is that I have no friggin’ clue how to manage adhd. When work was so unpredictable, I begged to WFH when I was overwhelmed- and did 10x better. But having to start full time with a company 💯 remote SUCKS- I can’t get shit done. There’s nothing engaging without team morale to motivate me through dull shitty work. My brain would rather redecorate/organize/tidy/cozy up my space than learn something new that I’m not even the least bit interested in.

I have a 2 hour interview with an agency tomorrow for a freelance role. This is my first time speaking with them, a recruiter set me up with them last week and they liked me enough to want to meet me (!!) I’m meeting the members of the team individually which is why it’s so long, but do you think a 2 hour interview right off the bat is a good sign? Any tips for not burning out over the course of 2 hours?

Any strategies or resources you could recommend for getting rid of the dreaded annual performance review (or at least lessening the dread) and creating a more effective year round performance feedback system? Our review is currently tied to our end of year bonuses and merit increases, so not sure I could get rid of it entirely. This would be for hourly and management employees, all working on-site.
