Anybody have any insight on what PwC is going to announce for WFH? Trying to decide if I might as well move back with my parents

If you’re coming up on a lease renewal and would rather just move home, go home. It probably won’t be until mid-2021 anyway. Plus, there will be tons of notice. It’s not like they’re gonna email you on Friday saying you have to be back in the office on Monday.

You will not go to a PwC office until April at the earliest. If you are in advisory or consulting, client sites are still fair game

Is it normal to get basically zero feedback? Brand new associate working at a mid sized firm. Been there a few months now and firm is still WFH. I get a fairly consistent amount of work. But I send my work product off into the ether and typically hear nothing or very little back (even when I follow up). I’ve gotten same vague “good work” feedback but that’s about it. I’ve drafted memos to clients and some briefs that have been sent/submitted nearly verbatim, so I assume that’s a good sign.

We are currently building the plan for the hybrid model we will follow mid October. (No specific date yet.) We have committed to an A/B model with groups attending MT and Th/F in person, working remotely the other three days. If you have an AB model do you deliver the same content to your students each day, regardless of them being remote or in person? Or is the lesson cycle one that begins on the first day you teach in person for each group? This second model seems complicated.

I have five weeks before I switch firms and I currently work remote, so I can travel and work. Where would you go within the US? Or is there anything else I should do? (Also ttc so no Zika)

I live alone and have loved the time not traveling but WFH has really started getting to me the past few weeks. On top of that, I got a series of bad news this week that really took a toll on my mental health (one has affected my ability to visit family), and I’ve never felt this alone in my life. I miss having an office to go to and see others in. Even started skipping workouts & cooking, both of which I love. Could use hugs and inspiration to get past this hump

ITW Illinois Tool Woks is another loser. I'm sharing all active trades. this is another re-opening trade. I opened this at the end of November, and the long is down about 45%. The trade is only down about 15% though as the shorts have been rolled a few times already. Since I have 82 more days in the long, I can roll the shorts at least 7 times and even at $1 each the trade is a small winner. If TIW even goes down another 50% it becomes a decent winner.
