Hi Fishes, I have got an offer from Wipro, was hired for an immediate requirement for some project named ELC. Does anyone know about this account?

Does they provide any reimbursement for WFH peripherals like Accenture does?

Can’t lie doing Monday WFH massively reduces that Sunday evening pre-work anxiety. The knowledge that I can wake up at 8am, have breakfast, shower and put washing on and be at my desk 8.50am
Feeling really paralyzed and immobilized due to work (not sure if I articulated that well). Work is giving me so much anxiety that I’ve been procrastinating for 2 days. I’m extremely overwhelmed and feel anxious all the time. Wfh isn’t helping. Spent 10 AM - 7 PM in bed. Planning to take some meds and sleep till the morning.

I tried all things that could potentially help like getting lumbar support, ergonomic pillow, stretching steadily throughout the day etc. I'm seriously concerned if it will be what blocks me from moving forward in my career. Typical hours ranging 60 to 70 and i know my back will only keep getting worse during WFH and it's out of control. TIA.

What are your strategies for completing work efficiently? How do you figure out how long projects should take? A consistent piece of feedback on my yearly reviews has been that I over-bill & spend too much time on assignments. It’s something I actively work on, but I still have no concrete sense of how long I should spend on basic tasks (e.g., drafting a motion to dismiss). My firm is right to expect that I manage my time better as a mid-level associate. WFH has made my time management worse.

NYC, rising 4th year, V5, M&A. In July, I got the call from the partnership that I should begin to “explore other options.” I always knew when I left, whether on my terms or not, I would exit to finance. It’s been a rough transition. Been pretty discouraged and hit a low point of shame & apathy in August. Just wanted to say that I finally landed my first formal PE and IB interviews this week and am beginning to feel hopeful again! I think it’s all gonna work out.
