Working 2 full time jobs while remote. One makes 75k the other makes 85k. I only plan on using the 85k towards living expenses. What would You do with the other 75k? Go all in on 401k? Save for a house in the next 4 months (already have 35k saved for a down payment)? Diversify between crypto, taxable brokerage, 401k? I’m also debt free.
For anyone missing a whiteboard while WFH: I picked up a big dry erase mat from Staples that I mounted on a wall. It doesn’t clean off as easily as an actual whiteboard but it does the job. They also make whiteboard paint you can put on your wall. The best one is made by a company called “remarkable” but it isn’t cheap.
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.
Is there a WFH stipend available to us? Few other firms offering this and curious if Accenture offers similar support
it’s four years into work from home.. …. your boss still doesn’t wear headphones or mute themselves on calls … . … you’re trying to present your work….. another day, another battle with what you said two seconds ago
3 months into WFH and I (and my admin) are all of the sudden making mistakes like never before. Nothing minor, but definitely not on our usual game. I think it is due to the lack of ability to talk with partners and staff in person and sync up. Anyone else experiencing this?
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.
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:
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?
WFH + short week = 🙌🍺🙏🍻👍

Been on bench for two months. Been WFH ever since. Added corona situation, I feel like I am going crazy and want to run away from everything. What are you guys doing to stay calm?
Does anyone know of any website that lets you filter in-house positions by those who allow remote work? I’m assuming this does not exist but wanted to see if any of y’all have any thoughts.
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?
I’m in a small-ish office. managing partner of my office & my practice group leader said I could work from home some days per week. Most people seem fine with it except one partner (who has most of the work to give out). Should I stick to my guns and continue to work from home on my days or should I give in to this partners’ passive aggressive side comments generally about people “not actually working” even though I’ve maintained my hours and have gotten every assignment done and done well?
Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing. *Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb
Daddy D is throwing around some pretty crazy referral bonuses right now. If I can hit four referrals, I’ll split evenly among all four + myself. Up to $10k per person and at least $2.5k per person. Put it in escrow and everything. So if you’re looking to change firms, a new opportunity, etc. DM me. Can easily negotiate a nice sign on bonus, and my offer should sweeten the pot.
What are some ways that your firm encourage networking between different groups, practice lines, etc? Just looking for inspiration from other firms. My firm wants to finally work on culture
Any other benefits/allowances in Capgemini?
Looking for supply chain roles! 3+ YOE supporting supply chain & procurement groups. 2 years with Deloitte SCNO as an analyst. Comfortable with excel, SAP & Oracle cloud - if your group is hiring let’s chat!!
Why do companies that clearly desperately need people think that assigning a take home case study that takes 10 hours will help their cause.... I will drop out in a heartbeat lol
@partners - I have two opportunities. One is to lead a group for a corporation (industry). The other is to join another consulting firm, doing the same work that I am doing now. While the comp will be better to stay in consulting and I do like the idea of becoming a partner one day, I am intrigued with the steady industry role... any advice?
Is there a list of companies that still sponsor H1B? Asking for my entry-level nephew who just graduated.
Hello. Who has Principal as their 401k administrator? What funds did you all pick? Not into target date funds and want to be aggressive even in my 40s. TIA!
For benchmarking I think it’d be helpful for all on here to see starting comp. (undergrad or MBA) at top consulting firms: Firm: Base salary: Total possible per. bonus: Profit share: 401K:
Is there anyone from Gartner who can tell what they think about the benefits. How many days pto, what is the 401k like?, healthcare etc? Any idea how many days PTO dies an associate partner get?
Okay, so what do I really need for a classroom. Almost graduate on a budget, here! What are some really amazing supplies or must-haves you have in your classroom?
Hey fishes I know it's kinda depressing but that's what I am into so it's been months now with Amazon and I've working in a new role learning great stuff but here's the catch I don't have anyone to contact with like people here don't reply if you ask for help and if you even call out like they defend by saying they're busy . Forget favors they don't reply to "hey". I have total 2 yrs of exp so barely saw work culture at office. But I wanna ask is this normal or I'm overthinking.
Chances of getting an IT Strategy Consultant role at KPMG in commercial? Currently at Deloitte GPS doing risk management and the recruiter seemed hesitant with my background during initial screening but unsure how selective they are.
I got a verbal offer from Slalom last week, the recruiter asked about my salary expectation, and said he will contact me by the end of the week to finalize the numbers, I followed up the end of week, still no news, does that mean they are not moving forward with the offer anymore?
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
What’s the bare minimum amount of time you should stay at an agency? Suspecting (another) round of layoffs and don’t want to get caught with my pants down.
