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.
Do you think firms will update expense policies to allow for reimbursable overtime meals in the remote environment (rather than only allowing reimbursement for meals consumed on site)?
WFH - Are you getting more exercise or less? I know it’s hard with gyms being closed, but with YouTubeTV, running virtual workouts there are a lot of options.
Please help to decide the best offer based on CTC & WLB. 1. Capgemini: 17.1 fixed + 1.9 variable 2. R system: 21 fixed + 1 L JB ( WFH permanent) Current : 7.5 YoE: 7.1 years
What’s the word that’s been communicated regarding WFH/office for EY FAAS? Are they making a push to come back to office soon?
Anyone else still working from home half the time because the firm has a hybrid in-office/WFH policy? I love my days at home and I get the exact same amount of hours billed either way.
I was just diagnosed with ADHD at 40. It explains so much about how I work, why I struggle in certain areas, and why I’m good at others. WFH exasperated symptoms and it’s what drove me to seek help. I wasn’t aware so many women mask symptoms almost their entire lives!
My in-house team at an international organization is quickly looking for a few remote freelancers with over 4 years experience to fill out our team: art directors with design experience, information designers, digital designers, illustrators, ux designers and print designers. DM me for more information.
Any recommendations for best office chair, something that can be found on Amazon UK? Any equipment that makes your WFH life amazing?
I definitely have leanings towards the FIRE movement. Has the WFH environment/dip in market swayed anyone’s opinions one way or another?
I was diagnosed with ADHD a long time ago, and because of the low severity of it and the affects of adderall I decided to not be medicated. I think with WFH and Covid times it’s gotten a lot worse for me and I’ve noticed my work performance tanking and my anxiety rising in public accounting. I know this is normal for people in PA who don’t even have ADHD, but does anyone have any advice??
Just moved to bigger place and finally have place for an office (yay! was working on the couch for a year…horrible posture now…) Got an electric standing desk, a great office chair, and a nice desk light…any other recommendations for a comfy wfh set up?
Fucked up and forgot to cancel my Westin hotel booking when I was told to be remote this week. Got charged for one night. Can anything be done?
Hi! I am planning on climbing, hiking, and wfh in Boulder, Co this summer. Anyone know of any temporary housing? Also open to meeting people, so dm me if you live there and want to hang out.
For fellow locally staffed consultants , do you want to go back to the office after quarantine is over? I don’t . Personally the 1.5 hours I save daily commuting is worth it. I’ll add though that previous to this situation, I’m at a very laid back long term client and my manager doesn’t care as long as we show up to the office three times a week. So I may be slightly bias towards WFH. Thoughts?
With Illinois starting to reopen, I saw non-essential businesses will be allowed to reopen with safety cautions put in place and a strong recommendation to wfh. How likely is it offices open up now?
Whats good work from home reimbursement?
Is studying for (and hopefully passing) the CFA a good alternative to an MBA for career advancement? Background: Currently in M&A advisory. Not looking to move into research or portfolio management, just seeking to add an "advanced degree". I would love to go back to school, but cost and my location - not near any major schools - have kept me from applying. I have considered Kellogg's eMBA in Miami. #cfa #mba
Thinking about switching to FDD after finishing my second audit busy season (currently a staff but up for senior promotion in June). Should I jump at the staff level or stay a few more years and try to jump at the senior level?

Our expense reporting system is so bad that you need a separate charge code for the time spent entering expenses
Deloitte 🐠, what expenses can you charge to your corporate card besides airline tix, hotel stays and meals? Water bottle? Beer? Baby carrots? Vending machine? Will these be rejected?
What’s the current h1b transfer time? I’m hearing conflicting lengths - some day 10 months, some say 2 months..
Extra 30 mins for traffic today at MSP. People can't handle merging and they've shut down one lane and a parking entrance.
I got offered TC 200K for Dallas. I can also choose Los Angeles or San Francisco. How much should my TC for those two cities be to account for COL?
Tik Tok has made me realize that I should’ve became a real estate developer. Instead I chose a path where I’m afraid to ask for 5% raise, and burn my brain 80 hours a week working for the man.
BCG or MBB folks, got a call from the recruiter today that the outcome of decision round and calibration call today was positive and the lead partner will give me a call on Monday to discuss with me on the role and offer directly by himself. Trying to get some inside from the HR but she just asked me to wait and hear from the partner, sounds a bit weird and surprise to me as normally this state was usually with the HR. Anyone experienced this before? Was this really a good sign? @BCG Digital
26/NYC/4 years experience/56K. Already know I’m underpaid 🙄, question is how to make a big raise stick.
Hello - I am thinking about taking an internal mobility opportunity for a lob strategy role. Any idea of a VP salary for this type of role and how/when to discuss an increase during the process. JPMorgan Chase
Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications
Help me to set some boundaries with work. Being remote, everything is blurred together and my boss doesn’t respect that or encourage us to keep them. I like to start my day with yoga and meditation, but today I woke up with anxiety knowing I already have emails from the weekend, and just started working as soon as I got up instead.
Honestly, for those of us that who work 70-80 hours a week. Is that really necessary? How much of that is really needed vs. due to inefficiency, bad planning, lack of the alignment of skill sets in terms of staffing, or most importantly bad culture and working style?
