Work from home will be a bliss they said. Meanwhile me... **Please, leave your struggles with WFH too under comments!**
Hi Macchi log! I would like any suggestions on which company I should join. I’m looking for WLB, learning and growth in Web UI development, relocation opportunities outside India, yearly/ performance based increments & promotions, chance of permanent WFH. T-Systems, Nagarro, TCS, LTI, Dassault, CDK Global - offered salaries are almost similar, 5-10% more or less. I’ve accepted Nagarro but will decline a few soon. Am also keen on Dassault. ~6.2 YoE as Web UI dev.
Is anyone going else confused and upset agencies are making people go back into the office? Commuting is horrific and wastes time, and honestly I work more efficiently from home without distractions. All for the option to go in, I just think it’s super tone deaf to make people go in again. The world’s changed. Don’t move backwards.
Let's see what we are all making. Include current salary, location, industry, and YoE please. Reply using your title. I'm going first in the comments.
Good evening ladies! I got really frustrated today with my oldest daughter 18. She’s been “helping” with my 1 year old while she’s been out of school and I’m not happy with how she’s doing. I work from home so I didn’t think it would be that much or that hard to watch him. She doesn’t do anything with really during the day. She doesn’t take him outside long for walks… she doesn’t so much to entertain him… she’s always on her phone… I need help now! Have you ladies tried Care.com?
What does travel look like for mbb? Think there will be remote options in the future? Or even one week on one week off
What has your company done (or would you like them to do) to help with work life balance during all the covid WFH craziness? I’m joining a task force on this topic and would love to hear any ideas people have!

Been a coach at the collegiate level for 6 years. Make a $65k salary. Want to leave coaching and break into sales/marketing/recruiting/consulting. I have ample leadership and recruiting experience with a strong work ethic. I’m assuming I’m going to have to take a pay cut and start toward bottom of totem pole. Any recommendations/advice on roles to apply for since I’m new to the field? Would like to be in tech if possible in Charlotte, NC or remote.
Any advice on coding certifications? I have a Bachelors in business and Associates In Nursing and looking to go remote. I am seeing tons of RN coding positions remote? Any good programs or Advice to get certified. I am in PA.
Hi All I got selected for TCS recently and 4th July is my joining date. I was selected for 15 LPA. My concern is i have a small kid who is 10 month old and i dont want to leave her to maids. I am getting higher package offers like Nagarro permanent wfh. But i am hearing that Tcs will be good for WLB and less work stress. Is this true? Because i am little bit stresseful that permanent wfh options may be very hectic. Kindly guide me in this regards.
Folks who’ve left ClearView, how is life on the other side, and how long did you stay before you jumped ship? It’s a week where I’m burning, and the fact that I feel so isolated during it makes me want to quit consulting altogether. Would also like to talk to some of you if possible. Never thought I’d say this but I honestly feel unhappy in my job, and I wonder if it is just WFH related - and whether it might get better once the office opens up.
Does anyone else end up in tears when frustrated / stressed / tensed - like after a tough client call or just a rough day with too much work. It’s not like I’m “crying” but have hot tears rolling down my face - more like anguish? I don’t do it in public but my SO sees me (WFH) and I don’t want to be perceived as weak
Is anyone still staying remote with no mandate to go back ever? If so, drop those names
Caribbean island recommendations please. If we’re stuck at home for a bit, prefer to do at a warm beach. I can work remote. Kid’s school is online. We’d like to take advantage of AirBNB ‘monthly’ rentals which are much cheaper or similar. So what’s the safest most affordable destination please? Thank you.
Can anyone share their opinion on transition from audit to advisory? Does work hour changes much? Is any firm out there that offer remote advisory roles?

My laptop bag fell off my citiBike and got run over by a bus.... Fffffffuuuuuucccccckkkkkkk!
I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.
Finally got the nerve to tell someone off for trying to put his backpack in one overhead and then carry his suitcase to another bin down the line. Nope nope nope.
Lots of farewell emails this week at PwC. People getting laid off? Has anyone heard anything about it?
Do stays at Marriott locations count toward SPG and vice versa? Or are only the points transferable?

How do you guys actually deal with the stress from our jobs? And please don't give me the "I work out" or I "Go for runs" tropes..that stuff does not help with the day to day stress of our industry. How do you guys deal with it on a daily basis?
Cat thread :)
Have had an enormous shift in mindset recently, and I now wake up everyday just looking forward to being a good human being. Hope all you 🐠 fam have an awesome day and week ahead.
Does anyone else do breakfast/morning meetings at home and then come into the office at around 10/11? This gives me the perks of extra sleep and a non-rushed breakfast while still satisfying the office requirement. Or do your offices tacitly require you to be in by 9 if you’re coming in for the day?
Friend never paid me back in multiple occasions: 1) went to Vegas together and she did not pay me for 2 nights room charge 2) Booked a rental car for her and it somehow charged me, she did not pay me back. She's now visiting a place near my town and she's asking me to come over, she said she will pay for the hotel room but she asked me to book it and said she will Venmo me. Should I trust her?
Is the 50-50 male-female hiring rule fair? In many offices the applicants are 80-20, thus women are 4 times more likely to make it. Isn’t this the definition of discrimination?
