Hi everyone! Hitting an all time rut with work motivation and burnout, with very long workdays (generally 7:30 am - 8 or 9 pm). Any tips that have helped anyone with this? Podcasts, books, songs or anything else that helps bring back the inspiration and drive? I am having a difficult time paying attention, being productive & just feeling overall detachment. Think there’s some low grade depression at play w/ the WFH situation & shorter/colder days, but I don’t have much control over my hours
Wow. I could never work from home full time. I had Waffle House to go for breakfast and cookies and bourbon for lunch.
Has anyone here worked with a team of remote engineers in Eastern Europe? Anything I should be aware of in terms of cultural differences or behavioral norms? I’m US-based

Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?

Is there anyone at the manager level or above that hasn't installed work email / phone software on their phone? I've never had a reason to use my phone for work because most of my time as a senior has been during wfh. I'd like to delay the inevitable for as long as possible and curious if anyone at the higher levels has somehow managed to avoid this.
Wondering what your company's remote work policy was before quarantine, and whether they're working on plans to evolve it once there's a vaccine and we all fully return to offices.

What is a good way to find a mentor at my firm? There are a couple attorneys/partners I think would be open to mentoring but how can I make it happen?

Currently working as a Relationship Banker. Haven’t had no complaints with how Chase has handled the pandemic from the consumer banking side. Recently I was asked if I was interested in a Financial solutions advisor role at Bank of America. Things have slowly began to pick up at our branch and while I would like to continue my career at Chase. The bump in base salary increases as well as the earning potential. Any advice on how to make a decision? Things to consider besides pay?
Just finished MBA; my start got delayed to November. I got another job in the meantime. Analyst role, I was crazy overqualified for it, but they’d take me knowing I was leaving in 4 months. Better to include this on my resume going forward, or to have a 4 month gap?
At the risk of sounding totally dumb, are holiday bonuses a thing? I know I am eligible for a fiscal year end bonus in March, but not sure if holiday bonuses are to be expected. Obviously it depends on the firm, but just curious if there’s a general norm.
