My firm is virtual - all work done remotely in home office unless on client site. Haven’t traveled since mid October. It’s driving me nuts. What do you recommend doing?
Deloitte is work from home flexible for the foreseeable future. 30-50 percent colocating. What are other firms doing?
How are most teachers plan on giving assessments to students who are remote learners? My school is everyday half-day for students (guardians) who chose to be in school. All other students are remote learners every day. That means I had classes with students who are physically there as student to are there through Google meets. I'm just trying to see what other teachers are doing to balance the two types of learners and how give fair assessments.....
Art Directors and Designers, what does your WFH work station look like? I’d like to upgrade mine to be more robust than just my laptop.
I am sure it’s been asked 100 times but humor me please. Best office chair to add to the good I’m doing with a stand up desk? Lol. Would love to stay in a reasonable range if possible (800 max)
Saw an email coming for EY reopening the India offices from October 4th, but professionals to WFH till December. I hope they never make it mandatory for people to work from office. I stay outside of the office location cities and would never want to relocate.

Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.
Is it doable to job hunt while traveling, or do you suggest I find a local/remote project?
Has anyone switched to a standing desk? Do you feel more productive? Was it worth it? Did you switch at the office or at your home?
All clients need to explain conference call etiquette when WFH to their employees. So far I’ve heard people washing dishes, talking to their spouse and kids, making lunch, and playing with pets...

Thoughts on nomad lifestyle? My “home office” is 3 hrs from my parents. I want to see if others have done this success. I have friends that I can crash with occasionally on Thursdays, bus elsewhere.
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?

Analytics&research with hedge fund front office role - what would be a good range for someone with ~5 years of experience? NYC market
Deciding on a stroller as a FTM. Read a lot of the comments in this thread. I’ll be having a winter baby in a very snowy place and won’t be doing walking outside until baby is maybe 5 months. I’m not sure I’d need a bassinet. What stroller would you recommend? If Uppababy, is it still worth it even though the Bassinet isn’t really going to be used?
How do you all view the importance of your base/commission ratio as part of your compensation plan? Is it worth it to stick it out with a company where 2/3 of OTE is commission based?
Currently a change management practitioner. What are the best exit opportunities to the corporate world?
I’ve been seeing this a lot more recently and just had to make a thread about it. I refuse to believe that anyone on here has actually been asked to work a 100hr week. People come onto this thread with legitimate questions and concerns and I just see people trying to scare them out of public which inevitably makes it worse for everyone else who sticks around. Even an 80 hour week is debatable and that is the absolute top. Stop trying to be an attention getter. We work, but not 24/7.
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

Anyone taken any courses or certifications at product school and been successful with their job search? They have some certification courses for free and was wondering if they would be helpful.

In-room internet not working at all (cable & wifi). Told the front desk first night and the morning after, 2nd night and still nothing. Should I ask to get points for this?
Anyone in SF/ San Jose? f25
Thoughts about McGarrah Jessee in Austin? If you work there or know someone who works there, I’d appreciate your opinion (culture, professional growth, etc).
Thinking about going to see a mental health and wellness coach or medical professional. COVID is getting to me, is this a bad thing? I feel weak asking for help, but think I may need it.
