Hey ladies! What are your favorite go to basic t shirts? I was really liking the old navy luxe t shirts because of how soft and inexpensive they were, but they wrinkle so much. I don’t want a shirt that looks like I slept in after the first time I sit down, not that I have to steam before each wear. Bonus points for budget priced - I’m wfh with a 2 year old right now, so I want to feel/look decent but not be devastated if it ends up with baby slime on it.

Anyone have recommendations for my next job? Worked two years on a data science team in industry and now have spent one year in data science consulting.

First day as scrum master and for a new team, any tips? I’m not used to gathering a team that’s 100% remote and am trying to figure out creative ways to get the team engaged.
Hey Creatives, how you collaborate differently in these remote-working times? Any successes or blockers?
I think the problem with consultants is you are overpaid from the very start because you generate revenue, even with zero skills and are willing to travel. Over time that evolves to arrogance because you think you know more than your clients when the reality is your sample set is quite small. I have spent equal time on both sides and would counsel you to be careful in a remote post COVID world because we are all realizing we have more employee capacity than we thought.
I went back to the office this month (3/4 days per week) and it’s been a positive experience. Plus it seems that some partners who are going in appreciated it. But the office is a 15 min drive away for me. Some people need to commute an hour plus to be there. Will they be at a disadvantage if they actually try to take advantage of hybrid WFH in the future?
He doesn’t understand the concept of work from home.
Shoutout to everyone who has tacitly agreed on the don’t ask don’t tell policy of recording client calls during WFH to make sure there are good notes and nothing is missed.
I’m a 2nd year civil litigation associate at a mid-sized firm in south Florida. My dream has always been to go in house but was dissuaded by law school professors telling me not to. I’m at a crossroads now because I’m OVER the billing, but my boss and direct team is quite possibly the most amazing and supportive group. My boss is always willing to let us work remote or take vacations. My question is, is the grass greener on the other side? Should I go in house now or wait another 3 years?
Have you all started shopping for regular office clothes again? Or have you always been wearing office clothes for wfh for the past year?

RIP my bank account 😓. Pay deferral program just kicked in. Any budget tips people can recommend to cut short term spending (other than going out to eat and dropping Starbucks. Haven’t done much of that since WFH started).
Unassigned for the next couple weeks. Fighting the urge to work from home until I am assigned. #minivacation
I commenced international remote working to be closer to my friends and family, but now as my team's office is about to reopen, I'm missing the idea of commuting and the sense of community in being part of the 9am rush hour. Are there any other easy ways of building a sense of community? Cheers!

In healthcare consulting and lots of emphasis placed on having clinical experience in this space. Worth it to go to med school, just to come back to consulting?
I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?
