Thinking of relocating out of the Chicago area to begin to subtle down. Does anyone have recommendations on states/areas to move to for cloud engineers/consultant that work from home?
Happy Thursday everyone! I know that as a profession and especially during this unprecedented time we constantly experience and are bombarded with negativity. Including the negativity in our lives away from work, which we see every time we get on social media platforms, or watch the news etc... therefore I thought we could put some positivity out there today and share some positive experiences that have been a result of this wfh/quarantine/pandemic.
Month 5 of 20/4 intermittent fasting. Down 25 pounds to ~170 lbs (stabilized there) M/53. WFH was hard but keeping fridge and cupboards from temptations (and still no booze for three months) has helped. It can be done--miss ice cream! but eating healthy in the 4-hour window. Two cups of black coffee/lots of water btw 9 pm and 5 pm. Doable folks. Don't give up. But am not exercising from home (just long walks 2x a week) due to intense work. Need to but hard to get back on exercise saddle.
Hear me out. Work part time remote, part time in-agency, and live in another city. Rent a studio near the agency. Insane? Love the job opportunity but can’t move my family right now. Am I kidding myself?

Anyone else experiencing strain in your relationships being at home all day with your significant other? I usually did well separating work things stress, priorities etc… when I was traveling. Literally able to leave it behind at the office and take my commute home either flying or otherwise as my time to myself to decompress so ready to take on family life when I got home. But with WFH I find myself struggling with this as stress is bleeding in with how I interact at home.

Trying Copilot, and so far kind of loving it! Only in first week of two week trial but this may be what I needed. Personal 1:1 remote trainer that programs all of my workouts based on my needs!
Is there a time when people generally “start” work remotely? Back when I was a summer before the pandemic, I commonly saw people go in between 9-10 am but I didn’t know what the norm is now that we are remote. I see emails at 8 am and I’m not sure if I’m expected to respond then or not. Also if you are on a deal where some of the members are in NY and you’re in the Midwest, are you expected to go by their times and be on when they are on?

What is the salary range for second year manager (IT advisory) in West coast bay? Planning to move but not sure if it will be a financial mistake considering cost of living.
I just want to hear the explanation for why staff who started during COVID are doing so badly on average (and I have heard this from every level including staff themselves) from the pro 100 percent work from home people. If you agree it’s real, what is your solution? If it can’t be fixed, are we just accepting that the people we expect to backfill our positions aren’t going to be ready?

Have 2 job offers. Company A is for a senior accounting position thats close to me, but i’m not too interested in doing reconciliations (the main task of the position). There is room to change departments after 1-2years though Company B is for a revenue and rev ops accountant, however, it requires relocation (100+miles). I love the culture of company B’s team but moving away from family and friends isn’t something I really want. Comp pretty similar so that’s not a big factor. curious, WWYD?
Hey everyone. Hope you are having a good day. I have a little question. I am the type of auditor that love fieldwork. I heard from someone that big 4 now tend to switch to work from home mote. Is that true? Do you think it's better to try to get into mid size CPA firms or big 4 small and medium client segment/ industry in order to have the greatest chance to be on audits that require fieldwork? Hope to hear your opinion and advices.
