A few months ago I asked the question about using travel smart routers to host a VPN to disguise your location. The purpose of this is to have a working vacation in a foreign country, without telling work about it. My work computer has restricted access so I cannot install a VPN service on the computer without help from IT. My work around is a smart router that can directly host a VPN. Now I am in Cabo with a VPN to the US. I’ve included some details in a comment below. AMA
My company switched to WFH/ hybrid permanently which enabled employees to relocate to their dream state as a personal choice & still work for the company. The only requirement is that they return in person 4x a year at their own expense. All other work related travel expenses other than these 4 in person meetings are covered by the company. It was known before accepting the WFH option/ moving.
Some employees are finding this unfair/ unreasonable, company should pay. What are your thoughts?

Was/Is it in commercial or GPS? And what were the reasons for the layoffs?

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼
