Transferred to the UK and got a fresh WFH set up budget Thoughts on dual monitor (24”) vs. ultra wide vs. 32” + laptop as second screen?
I have a chronic illness and WFH has saved my career. There is no way I would have been able to commute to and work in an office consistently. Now, none of my coworkers even know I’m sick.
Brainstorming on ways to increase connectivity among teams despite the 100% remote environment we find ourselves in at the moment (virtual HH seem to be getting old). Any ideas and/or things you have implemented at your company?
I know everyone will just tell me to calm down but I started a month ago and am on the bench. Feels like the people I started with were picked up. Do all the work given to me, pass my tests, follow up with people to look to get on an engagement. I feel like Im doing fine but WFH I feel very lost and alone as to what I’m supposed to be doing. Doesn’t help that a lot of people are in the south and offline with the snow. Any guidance as to what a path forward should be to learn to relax?
At what level is it too late to leave PA and get a pay bump? International tax manager, M2, looking to leave PA for a remote industry job that isn't just preparing returns. Is it even worth staying in PA to make senior manager first
Back on the market and I’m coming to find two things: 1. Less desirable agencies are the ones who want people back on-site soon, with no wiggle room for remote work. 2. These same agencies want to pay salaries based on COL in the city where the agency is based even if you’re working/living from another market in the interim. Example: Midwest based agency paying Midwest salaries to folks living in places like NY, SF, LA. 🧐🧐🧐🧐

My life is a constant cycle of waiting until the weekend and then not doing anything when it comes! #quarterlifecrisis #wfh
Do you check emails on the weekend because of covid wfh situation/generally? Or check email but wait to reply on Monday unless an urgent response is required?
Looking for a senior graphic designer for a facebook ad design. Looking to build a retainer relationship, for additional projects. We are located in Chicago, but open to remote. Hit me up. 👌🏻
I’m tired. I love wfh. But balancing it with cooking, cleaning, teacher, parent, caretaker - I’m drained. I want to sleep and wake up when it’s all over
Any recs for a semi-affordable, last minute get away? I’m still 100% remote, I’m burned out & I need a change of scenery for a few days. I’d plan to go for a long weekend & then work remotely for part & take part completely off.
Good morning! Anyone at Booze Allen willing to get me a req? Please DM me or invite me to DM you. I see a remote position that fits me well. Thank you for reading my TedTalk.
Which firms are still letting people expense overtime meals, aka WFH hasn’t changed expense-ability?
Anyone else realizing that family, friends, and general relationships are SO much more important than accomplishments as a result of covid/WFH?
Does Deloitte provide work from home allowance to new joiners? If yes, how much? Any other joining benefits?
Starting a new job on Monday and will be remote for the foreseeable future. Anyone have any advice on how best to make yourself known to execs and other senior leadership while remote?
West Monroe - is there a culture of wfh (all or part time) for non-client service staff? Eg firm operations.
I never thought that I'd say this, but I want to see offices and cubes make a return to the workplace. Either that or 70-100% work from home. Only having the option of open workspaces is terrible.
Has anyone else in NY had an offer delayed? I was told by my EY recruiter that it would take some time to receive the verbal and written offer due to a new background check for NYC residents; I was told unofficially that the team liked me and wanted to move forward and we discussed comp and start date. I’m a little concerned something else is going on and my offer will go to someone else. Am I worrying too much? Thanks! EY
How much do partners and senior managers in NYC make during their first years roughly at EY. This is in reference to Advisory practices like cyber and PI. Also how is the bonus per year calculated?
30-40% small businesses already shut down. 15 dollar minimum wage, 33% increase in corporate taxes, increased payroll taxes from new health plan. Yeah... good luck economy. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/joe-bidens-15-minimum-wage-hike-would-kill-2-million-jobs-new-study-shows
What does a principal do all day? My principal seems to sit in her office a lot and looks busy, but I'm really not sure with what and I wish she would come into my classroom.
Frequent travelers: I got 6k miles from AA as automatic compensation for a 6.5 hr delay, JFK>CDG. Genuinely have no idea whether that’s good or if I should ask for more. Thoughts?
What’s the best way to ask for the highest possible sign-on bonus for a senior manager equivalent in consulting role? I know the primary way is to explain how much performance bonus I would be giving up if I left my current gig early. TIA!!! Getting closer :)
As an interventionist, I work with many grade levels and students. Looking for the best way to document data and information along with how to share the information with classroom teachers & parents.
Do all partners at same level get paid the same? I would imagine that the bonus based on sales + additional factors based on how the firm/practice/domain/sub-domain is doing accounts for the variable pay on top. Just curious as to how the constant aspect of the salary works when in partnership.
I’m planning on getting the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate cert. Is there any point to getting the AWS Cloud Practitioner cert as well or is that just paying $100 for no reason?
Anyone at the Sheraton fishermans wharf?
I’m shocked by how broken and frustrating the AWS recruiting process for tech positions is. Seems like complete disconnect between the recruiting coordinators and the folks who actually interview. Maybe I just happened to get the most incompetent set of recruiting coordinators but the expectations set and instructions given for each interview were inaccurate plus the interviewer seemed to be reading from a script the entire time. Holy f*ck. What kind of brainless robots are they looking for?
I am sure it’s been asked 100 times but humor me please. Best office chair to add to the good I’m doing with a stand up desk? Lol. Would love to stay in a reasonable range if possible (800 max)
Has anyone resigned their lease on a covid deal apartment? Did the rent go up significantly? Lease is expiring in November and not sure what to expect from the lanlord since the market is back to pre-covid levels
Where to stay for solo trip to Seattle? Preferably a Marriott property. Never been to the city and don’t know where to stay
I have worked for my company in the UK as A Tech Lead (£58k) for the past year and I have seen all of my friends get screwed over, either by being the fall guy for something or the CEO + CTO causing people to get so depressed they leave. I'm at the end of my tether, but I love my team and don't want them to get screwed over by me leaving. We have built up a good atmosphere and culture in the team. In the last 18 months company have had a turn over of 50+% but not my team. What are your thoughts.
Is it possible to transfer between offices at ACN (permanent not project based)? Especially interested in hearing from someone with exp of transferring between Middle East and European offices? Thank you! Accenture
I left my BigLaw job earlier this year to take some time off and/or retire early. I now have an offer from an old colleague, now at a boutique, to write briefs on a contracting basis. We haven’t discussed pay yet—what would be a reasonable hourly rate to ask for?
16 weeks and so worried all of the stress I’m under is going to hurt the baby. Between work, my own scary (non-pregnancy) health stuff, the pandemic, my mom (who is a widow and lives alone, basically isolated by choice due to covid) is having health issues, and pressures to keep billable hours up, I’ve been having complete breakdowns. Today I spent almost the entire day crying and now have to make up the billable time this weekend. I really worry abt what effect this will have on the babe.
