Anyone from EY WFH outside the US? Thinking of doing it for a few days, but not sure if I should tell my team since firm policy states we must be in the country.
First week WFH in a long time. Kids are home so thought I’d go to the office for minimal distractions...nope: (cont.)
Curious if anyone here has successfully negotiated a remote work arrangement after getting an in-house offer? My spouse is located in a different city for school for the next few years, and I would like the flexibility to work remotely from that city for two weeks per month after a ramp up period of say 2-3 months.
Since we’ve been WFH, has anyone upgraded their webcam and microphone (e.g., using a Blue Yeti mic instead of a headphone mic). Was it worth it?
What are some things partners and directors can do to boost morale while we are all remote?
Unlikely there will be a lot of people that feel this way - but who else feels they were prepared for WFH and to handle these turbulent times socially and economically? And taking all this in stride.🤚🏼
Anyone have the nectar mattress and think it's good? All the work from home and not in a hotel bed is making me realize I need a new mattress
Does anyone here struggle with balancing work and attending to children at home as a single mother. I work from home in a very demanding job as a manager and I feel horrible that I have to sacrifice time with my children to work. I want to be successful at work and climb the corporate ladder, but at the same time my children don’t get the attention they need, especially my 6 year old that can barley read.
Hello everyone, my organisation is hiring for the position of Assistant Manager for Digital Marketing domain. Required experience is 6-7 years minimum. Full time WFH being offered with minimal office visits when necessary. Anyone interested, please DM
In the past two weeks my work has picked up 10x what it was previously. Now I’m working 70+ hr weeks and often my projects are submitted nearly before deadline since I’m shuffling multiple at once. My team is understaffed and there’s no plan to hire people due to COVID-19. How do you manage to tackle the day instead of let it tackle you? I feel like no one knows how much I’m suffering since I’m WFH’ing and try to relay positive emotions over FaceTime or messages.
I find it interesting the volume of talk about anti-anxiety meds has dropped off a cliff since the pandemic started. Are we feeling less social anxiety WFH?
I’m sore. BF and I WFH all last week and let’s just say coffee breaks got on the wild side. Let’s see what this week holds..
I need some advice. I got a new job back in may of this year. Very excited for a new opportunity to learn some new things and get a higher paycheck. I started and have gotten a few projects but they haven’t consistently been giving me hardly any work to do. I’m not resourced enough. I told my manager I have a lot of free time. I also work fully remote. I am feeling very unfulfilled and not sure what I should do next. I am very self motivated and want to make great work but not sure what to do.
Anyone from LBMC care to share how’s it like working there? I have an interview this week for a tax senior (remote) position. What’s the wlb and pay compared to big4?LBMC
My roommate is currently having a very loud conference call with 60+ very very giggly people. This wfh is going to be fun... she can sit in her room and close her door but nope. Thanks for listening 🤦♀️
Has anyone started at Citibank recently? In the digital products team? Looking for insight on company and life work balance. Location remote/ Irving, TX
One of the downsides of WFH is getting bored and going online shopping. HOWEVER, I think everyone should go to harrier.com and buy the coolest shirt ever made:
WFH + short week = 🙌🍺🙏🍻👍
Have officially deleted all my dating apps. I see I am not the only one who has. Would anyone be interested in a singles happy hour via Zoom at some point? Maybe invite friends? Me: From SF (CA) Female, 5’9, very active and fun, have 2 dogs
Working as a Principal at Slalom Consulting, 2 YOE, strictly Salesforce. My prior 10+ YOE is tech consulting/digital mktg outside of Salesforce. I'm happy with comp, projects, coworkers,etc. Salesforce is recruiting me for a solution architect role in CSG. After talking to 2 recruiters, job sounds identical to my current role. Outside of equity, is there a compelling reason to consider Salesforce? I think the equity would be nice but travel also seems more likely postCovid. Thanks!
Got an offer for a tier 2 firm and accepted it. Are there any actual risks of getting my offer revoked if I apply to mbb?
Has anyone ever done Tech/implementation consulting with the FDIC? Wondering how they are as a client and what the work atmosphere is like there
Feeling hopeless today professionally. I’ve tried to trooper on throughout this pandemic but today it all caught up to me. Exhausted, mentally drained and just so negative. Feel like all I do is work since covid. Have tried to set boundaries but it’s impossible when people can reach out on my cell. Get taken advantage of regularly for trying to do what right thing to support my teams. I like my job but I don’t know that I can keep this pace and that adds stress too
Any recommended books to carry along on a 17hr flight? Looking for easy reading. Genre - Self improvement, personal finance, photography, etc
Went in for a scan yesterday because I was having spotting and cramping at 12 weeks. The OB saw fluid behind the baby’s neck and is referring us to see a high risk doctor immediately. NIPT was negative. I’m panicking. Have any of you been through this?
Hi Folks - I wanted to understand..how is H1B 6 years duration counted? Is it strictly by the dates on the petition? In my petitions for example, first one was valid starting Oct 2017 and then I got an extension in 2020 till Feb 2023.. so that just equates to about 5 years and 4 months. So is my H1B only till Feb 2023 or it can extended to allow for the remaining period?
Hey friends - I’m currently on a brief medical leave (~1 month) and my management has been contacting me quite regularly by phone and email without notice for different documentation and admin processes relating to the leave. It’s basically taking up as much time as my regular work. Not sure what is reasonable here as I would really like to focus on healing and just deal with it when I’m back…isn’t that the point? What are my rights here?
"Burnout is the feeling of being overwhelmed and exhausted by everything you have to do, while still worrying that you're not doing enough. Burnout is where you can show up for work, but spend your whole day fantasizing about being at a different job." Hope this quick watch/read helps some of you as it did me https://www.ted.com/talks/emily_nagoski_and_amelia_nagoski_the_cure_for_burnout_hint_it_isn_t_self_care?utm_campaign=tedspread&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=tedcomshare
How do you define work-life balance? And how much of that balance is reasonable to expect for someone with ~2 YOE, be that in the Big 4 or in smaller niche/boutique firms?
Anyone go from MBB/T2 to MBA school and do something OTHER than return to consulting / go for high finance? Curious what your return on making that decision is and if it’s ever worth going if you’re already in consulting. Seems like most non-Consulting or IB jobs you could just skip the MBA.
Would passing the CMA help a Corp. Tax Senior switch to a senior accounting position in industry? Already have the CPA.
Hello, May I ask whether anyone here is working at Temasek in their investing team? A Search Partner reached out to me about a PE opportunity and I would like to prepare myself for the conversation and perhaps the interview process. Thank you so much!
