Hi. I have a question. In a world where COVID is under control, how would you feel if your companies went back to being fully in the office? But maybe others were adopting a hybrid model- some days remote, some days in the office. Would it make you want to work elsewhere? How important is being able to work remote (at a location of your choice, not at client /travelling) a few days a week to your job satisfaction?

I have 8 yoe as a BA. It's been 2 months since I joined a Big4 as a Scrum master. I was asked to shadow the project manager but the person is just not helpful. I am not looped/forwarded any emails, no client introduction has been done, no tasks, no one contacts me all day long except for the one call in a day where I am the silent spectator. Am I in trouble?
Anyone successfully negotiate compensation at firm that officially doesn’t allow for origination credit? Have brought in small clients in the past but this one is a big one and huge for the group and the firm. I’m not exactly doing this out of the goodness of my heart so would appreciate any advice on how to navigate the conversation. For reference, client specifically brought their work to my group so that they could work with me and it’s a personal contact of mine.
I work in a 7-attorney firm with a national presence. Partly because I’m only a few months in, I work a roughly 8-6 day. I’m also new to billing and often find myself working all day and billing just 4 hours. Whenever I bring this up to the partner, he says it’s good we’re not over billing our client. We don’t have minimum billable hours so it doesn’t matter much for the firm’s sake but I think I’m missing out on learning the important skill of billing my time. Has anyone ever experienced this?

I started having wrist pain in the fall and it has flared up a lot recently. My PCP and a hand surgeon both said they had no idea what it was, since the location of pain was inconsistent. folks with wrist injuries: how have you coped? I feel lost without a diagnosis. I stretch and I take breaks and I have ergonomic equipment, and still I ￼￼am in pain. Any advice is welcome, as are any sympathies or commiserations￼￼
Coming out of college I was worried I’d never get any long breaks again, but I’m pleasantly surprised this industry lets you take 1-2 months off between every project! Back on the road soon but

Starting a new job on January 3. Want to leave on good terms in case I want to boomerang down the road.

I had an interview for a position with a person that would be my co manager in this new department. I felt like he was trying to give me hard questions and never really listened to my answers. He basically was letting me know how he would handle the situation and try to cut me off when I did a follow up. I am like was that a good answer or was I way off. He has only been in that role for 3 weeks so might be an ego thing. I am like did I pass the interview haha. Advice.

How would you feel if your spouse remained financially dependent on their parents when your income could easily support you both? My husband’s parents still pay for his cell phone, car payment, car insurance and evidently are giving him an allowance of $60k annually. He doesn’t see an issue with it since we have separate accounts and in theory split expenses, plus he is trying to start a business and sees it as help with that, but it still makes me uncomfortable and I wonder if I am being unfair
