My boyfriend is on unemployment. I’m getting seriously irritated by him playing video games from noon to 4am while I WFH. He’s also being perpetually happy and I need advice on how not to kill him.

Is ZS paying the one time work from home allowance for setting up workspace for new employees. If yes how much?? Also does ZS give a phone for Associate Consultant??
I've been struggling since February to get my WFH setup in a way that works for me. I live in a 2br apartment with my partner so clearing the extra bedroom of distractions (we used it as a video and tabletop gaming room) was an easy choice. Unfortunately my productivity is much lower than it ever was at the office. I don't really get distracted at home, but I'm not getting as much done either. Anyone else still stuck like this? My company doesn't provide budget for home office either :/
Should I pull the trigger and apply to another job. I’ve been at big 4 for a little over a year now and I don’t see myself staying until manager, possibly not even senior. I never was super ecstatic about the job, but it has gotten worse since WFH began. Another job opportunity appeared closer to my home with the potential of a $10K+ pay increase.
Best WFH desk to purchase? With the WFH grind looking permanent for the foreseeable future, I think it’s time to (somewhat) splurge on a nice desk for my office. Right now My setup is a laptop, and two 32 inch monitors. I don’t absolutely need standing desk capabilities, as I have adjustable platforms for my computer and monitors, but a nice hybrid desk would still be convenient. Any recommendations from my fellow accountants?
Everyone's happy that it's the 4th while I'm just happy my SM let me work remote since it's a short week. #NoTravel
For others who work in government counsel or in house counsel office roles, do y’all have any advice on how best to handle lack of communication with the non-attorney staff you advise during wfh? I keep checking in on certain groups I advise that I don’t hear from anymore and am trying to not be too pushy, but it seems like either they aren’t getting work done or they are just not asking for legal consult on things that require a consult.

Anyone tried working remotely from a really remote location? i.e. a short term lease somewhere way off the map. How did it go? Hawaii is tempting me.

Working on a just-for-fun side project right now that involves a remote shoot. Zoom seems to be the easiest solution. But, does anyone know the approach Progressive/Arnold took with their WFH commercials? It seems like they shot each character separately. Then stitched them together in the edit.
EY Manager considering applying to a top Executive MBA program but have a reallyyyy bad undergrad GPA. That said, I graduated almost a decade ago from undergrad. Thoughts from anyone that has gone through EMBA application process?
Hi 🐟, starting a grad scheme in Management Consulting at Accenture UK. Do you have any insights on standing out? I would like to transfer to their Strategy practice ASAP. On a side note, had a bit of bad luck as I aimed at Strategy Consulting in the UK so rejected BCG Poland for it and failed in a final round to McK UK, but then A did not think I got enough experience for Strategy so I'm looking for a genuine advice on this. I suppose interview wise I'm there.
Followed up with 2 new potential jobs early this morning. The interviews were last week (went well) and I have yet to hear squat about next steps. I feel like I have PTSD from all this ghosting...

If I have been staffed for pretty much the entire year (barring a couple of weeks) and I fall to 90% utilization because of PTO, trainings etc. will I be fine come year end?
Where do you draw the line between sexism and being old-fashioned? I’m a young female on a mostly male defense project and one of the older men always opens car doors for me, refuses to let me hold a door or drive anywhere, and seems to strongly believe in traditional gender roles in his own family. I believe he thinks this is being respectful, but it rubs me the wrong way.

Been looking for an exit since January because I don’t like the direction my position has been going. Covid screwed it up, but what gives with companies not allowing a candidate to live in any city when the travel is 80-100%? I’m not going to be home so why does it matter where I live?￼ I’m 30 minutes from an airport and I can be anywhere in the US within 5 hours with no issue. Anyone have any suggestions to overcome this without moving?
New titles dropping at SR_, but no compensation changes. Sounds like many getting demoted in title. "Titles are not an entitlement program, you have to earn them." Well, then.
