My phone screen time has gone up a lot since WFH and so much new news content. Any techniques to help me stay off my phone?
Slalom 🐠, I understand travel is limited in your firm, are there also opportunities for remote work or are they all based in cities? I’m a bit outside of one and wondering if it makes sense
I find it harder to defend creative over email than pulling someone aside in person to explain your case. I can send an email countering their points 1,2,3 but it doesn’t have the passion or persuasion if I’m person. And our culture is more email than phone call. Anyone have a POV on defending work from home?
So last week when I asked admin about subs he said: that's the cool thing about virtual learning- no need for subs bc you can work from home.... wait, if I'm sick?????
At what point would a firm start questioning an associate’s billable hours total? Since WFH, I’ve taken on a few doc review projects to keep hours up but I feel like some clients/peers are skeptical
Deloitte M&A, what is your travel schedule like? Any opportunity to work remote on DD for example (besides fri wfh)?
Which shops gave WFH stipends for you to use for home office buildouts? If you got one, how much and what did you get?
So an employee in the know has told me that after Christmas Break, our principal will be constructing a letter to give out to “revoke” remote learning for students that are consistently absent, failing, etc. I’m not sure how to take that...
Is anyone else’s job on fire rn? This crisis has created two distinct groups- people laid off and people working literally non-stop. My boss is hounding me on 5 remote work apps, I have no escape
what chair do you sit in while wfh? I didn't think it would make a huge difference, but I really miss my office chair (Aeron w lumbar support). any suggestions for decent chairs under $200?
What agencies/companies have already had wfh or remote working options before this whole pandemic?
For those of you going to bschool in the fall, when are you quitting your jobs? For those that haven’t left yet, have you told your team? Need to figure out when/how, while WFH
IEP, 504, and those without internet will return in-person next week while rest of students remain remote. Regular Ed teachers may have students (mild Learning Disabled kiddos) in their room while teaching. They are saying it’s a liability issue if they have one student in the room with them, even though teaching other via Zoom. Thoughts? Anyone else experiencing this?
We are hiring an AE! EComm experience a huge plus, HubSpot/Klaviyo experience preferred. Fully remote for now and foreseeable future. DM me for more details!
Anyone else seeing this WFH going late into the summer? Seems to be taking countries 3/4 months to get somewhat on top of the issue and that’s without widespread testing.
🌈 Hiring PM’s! 🌈 I work for an L&D company near Denver. We build learning technologies/simulations for large corporations for mid-level managers to C-suite! I exited from Deloitte (5 YOE) and pay is nice. No travel and WFH 2-3 days a week. PM me if interested 🤓
Were any of you in a long-distance relationship while pursuing your MBA? How did you communicate to your partner how stretched thin you will be during your first semester with classes and recruiting?
Trying to think ahead. What is the best holiday gift you’ve gotten or could get from your manager? I’m looking for ideas other than alcohol, pay raise/bonus, extra time off. I’ve got those covered. Looking for actual ideas that would make my staff happy/special. Thanks in advance!
Anyone with insights on Comcast Business? How’s the pay?work culture? Quality of folks? Talking to a recruiter and would appreciate PoVs

Have some analyst candidates coming in this week. What are your favorite questions to ask when hiring ?
Currently applying for jobs, but don't want to waste time by applying to firms that currently have a hiring freeze. Looking for inside information for which companies I shouldn't bother applying to rn
I am very conservative in investment. Have $650K in CDs/HYS, $50K in stock funds, and maxing out 401K. I have no debt except $520K of house mortgage @ 2.6% interest rate (house value is approx $1M). Does it make sense to pay out a portion of the mortgage or should I invest more in the market?
For folks on H1B visa, are we allowed a gap of 2 weeks between two jobs? I am thinking of going on a vacation before starting a new position at another firm.
I visited a friend of mine who has a 1 year old baby, and asked me if I wanted to get a dog. then she asked me if I wanted to get a plant 😂. since it is a good way to take care of something else, and to train for the future. Honestly I find this hilarious, but I don’t think having a plant or a dog will make my life fulfilling 🤣🤣
Any recently laid off cyber architects in the Chicago area? I’ve got a job opportunity at a local healthcare provider. DM me.

Management: you just charge your time to the right code, otherwise you're fired. Also Management: we just deleted all of last year's internal codes without making new ones... have fun!
Yes! Moved onto an earlier flight so only 9 hours in the lounge instead of 12. Celebrate small victories 👊
So I’ve been at my job for about 3 months. I haven’t been super happy there so far. The work isn’t exciting, there’s a few weird culture things, etc. A copywriting job just opened at the agency I interned at. I loved it there and have always wanted to go back. Is it terrible to leave a job after only a few months?
Is it appropriate to listen songs on headphone while working at client site? My efficiency is more when I listen songs and work.
Absurd that gyms are part of the initial wave of businesses to be reopened. Looks like lobbying had something to do with it: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/04/23/politics/gyms-reopening-lobbying-coronavirus-trump-phase-one/index.html. Makes no sense 🤷♂️
