I assume if ibankers in NYC can wfh, those in sydney should be able to as well?

So there are some groups at JP in NYC that can’t, but I do think they’re trying to open up smaller offices outside the city in both nyc and London for that. Your brother is right though in that some programs will only run on JP computers because of our security measures

Bloomberg and Reuters both have remote access capabilities. That's a terrible excuse.

Second this. My roommate has remote access to Bloomberg for his job and has been using it from the dining room table.

He also doesn’t want to WFH so maybe it’s an excuse but he still lives at home with my parents who are around 60 (yes, he’s 24, making over 2x what I am, and still has mum iron his shirts) so I’d rather he didn’t catch public transport everyday

Friend at Deutsche Bank still has to go in as an “essential employee”, also for the Bloomberg/recorded phone reason. He said that very few of them are required to go in though, and IT is working to fix up the remote option.

Was at my local bank in the US and they told me starting tomorrow they are closing the front doors and asking people to do drive through only.

I wasn’t referring to consumer banks but yeah, if banks that usually meet with their clients daily can close, investment banks should be able to as well...

Have now worked entirely remote for over a year after having only worked in an office for a few months. It’s my normal and I’m far more productive and available from home than in an office.

I’m a pretty anxious person and I’ve realized that a remote work environment only makes me more so - not being able to read people’s tone well, email/ping responses being more delayed than they would be in a conversation, the awkwardness of virtual meetings, etc. I’m in therapy and will discuss this there but would love to hear some tips about how people manage work anxiety specifically in a remote consulting environment.

Working in my office used to be my primary source of work outfit inspiration but since working remote staying aware of what styles are in is nearly impossible. I live in a smallish town, so going out doesn't help fill in that awareness gap. Are there any online communities or slack communities where people talk about and share style inspiration I can wear at work? I'm 28, work in tech, and my office is a start up, so attire is casual. I'd also be interested in brands people follow.

For those of you who spent a long time in big law (at least 10 years but more along the lines of 15+), when did you know it was time to do something else (maybe in the law, maybe not)?

I had an argument with opposing counsel last week and was seeing red for hours after that, and little things seem to bother me much much more than they would have before

My favorite part about WFH is that I experience significantly less micro aggressions and/or discrimination than when I used to have to go to the office. The downside is that there will probably be less work for employment lawyers. I don’t mind making that sacrifice. It’s harder to have a hostile work environment when you don’t have to be in a work environment 5 days a week (sometimes 6). For context, I’m a POC.

On ApplicantLab, the coach goes on quite a bit about having a lot of white space on your resume (easy on the eyes), etc etc. This is totally wrong, right? Ive explicitly a Wharton admissions officer say to use margins to your advantage (pack more stuff in) and have seen an application guide at an MBB, where the resume templates include very little white space. Obviously every word should be valuable, but just wanted to check my sanity here since AppLab offers good advice elsewhere.

Hi everyone, I Received a first offer from Deloitte 2 weeks ago that I countered and they accepted to raise it. The recruiter in charge of my case was on holidays and he came back to work last week. Sent him two emails asking when I should expect the new set of documents, but no reply until today. Is this normal? Does a new offer necessarily have to go through the same steps as the first one ? Because I waited 10 days between the verbal offer and the written one for the first time. Thanks!
