Is it possible to get remote jobs or at least work out of Southern California for faang in house that are mostly based out of the Bay Area?
Does anyone have any insight as to when things are going to go “back to normal” in California in terms of needing to appear in person for smaller status conferences, hearings, depositions, etc. instead of doing it via zoom? I am permanently remote but a lot of my cases are in courts that are a good 1.5-2 hour drive from me and I’m starting to feel anxious about when I’ll have to start going in person for these types of things because of the distance.
Anyone working in Akamai Technologies US. Can you please let me know if the company let you work remote from anywhere in the world . I was planning on becoming a digital nomad but not sure of the company policy. Any information would help regarding if you could access work laptop anywhere or if there is any gel blocks in place .
Has wfh made you change life priorities, how ?
I am working at MSLGROUP as an Associate, less than 1 yoe , they have asked me to relocate in 4 weeks to the Location (currently wfh). Also I have an offer from one of the competitors based in my City. Relocating will shoot up my expenses and joining the competitor is kind of a downgrade in terms of brand. What do you think guys?
Anyone have a therapist reco in Chicago? Hopefully someone who is cool doing remote sessions for now? I've gone to therapy before, but it's been a few years. On top of everything happening to everyone this garbage year, I've had some upsetting personal stuff happen lately and it's getting to be too much to bear. Know myself enough to know it's time to get back into talking to a professional! Thanks in advance.
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
Is it possible to work 2 jobs while WFH for a month while I switch between jobs? Anyone done it?
Suggestions for a birthday gift for myself? My boyfriend has been asking for weeks & I keep saying nothing but he is not having it. I have a comfortable life & can’t think of anything other than a nice night out, which is already common in our relationship. I suggested a nice set of cookware because I enjoy cooking on our nights in but he jokes it’s a little too domestic. An engagement is already in the works so jewelry seems silly & I WFH so even high end shoes/bags can wait. Thoughts?
Who in HR do I contact to complain about a hostile work environment after hearing my husband and teenager shouting at each other? WFH not always the best
I used to be a top performer before rona but have been so unmotivated for the last year of WFH and my performance is tanking because of it. I know some people love this life but I absolutely hate it; I chose audit because I enjoy being onsite at clients and thrive on the team camaraderie of audit rooms. WFH was okay at first, but the longer I'm stuck sitting at the same desk in my house alone all day the more meaningless everything feels to me. I don't know what the solution is, but I'm so tired
I am planning to join accenture next month, considering the wfh scenario, Can you anyone provide there experience how joining process is happening in accenture. I am a lateral hire
So is the opposite of WFH, WFO?
How often do you talk to your staff and director? Started a new job in industry and we are still WFH. I’m still pretty new and would normally stop by to talk to people. We don’t have regular team meetings. So I guess Skype message is my only option, but check in once a week? This is outside of work emails, just to chat. I don’t want to be annoying and want to get to know my new coworkers. Any advice appreciated for this introvert.

Anyone hiring solo Sr ADs? In NYC or remote, preferably for a client that doesn’t suck with people who also don’t suck (I know that’s asking for a lot)
Interviewing for a role at Apple but found the same role at Meta this week. I applied to the position and reached out to a few recruiters via LinkedIn (haven’t received a response, sure they are swamped). Meta is remote whereas Apple is not, really hoping I can interview at Meta as the role is a perfect fit. Am I to late to do a referral? Would anyone be willing to help? Thank you in advance!!
Hi Moms- Curious to get a sense of what your different parental leave policies look like and how you have liked them. My company gave 12 weeks paid and I felt it was woefully short for my first. Before having my second, I'm interested in pushing my company to increase the time and am curious to hear what other companies offer. Beyond just the time, was your company flexible? Is it the same for all parents? Did it feel like enough? Thank you!
Anyone willing to connect and provide coaching on how to get into MBB or management consulting in general? I recently have an interview with one of the MBB for EM position, I don't think I would get it, but interested in learning more as I've always wanted to do management consulting. I plan to reapply in a year or so.
I have so much stuff to finish for 9/15 and my mind decides it's a good time to go through heavily missing my late mother.
Should you wear a tie for a McKinsey interview over zoom? Recruiter said business casual, is that a trap? Jk but really would a jacket and dress shirt be fine

Is it better to be a big fish in a small pond, or a small fish in a big pond? Just got recruited with promotion/pay bump for a bigger firm but I’m in a great spot with my current firm. Suggestions?
Really looking forward to my upcoming vacation time and the moment I get a message saying if I could reschedule my time off because “everything is hot right now”.
Am interviewing for a director, product role at a SaaS unicorn fintech. Currently a principal/associate partner in a boutique strategy firm, have 16 years of total work experience. Would you know if I am interviewing at the right level? (Still learning how the levels in a product organization match against consulting levels). Any pointers?
Hi! I have an exploratory interview coming up with a hiring manager at a startup. I reached out to her on LinkedIn, asked if she would be open to connecting and she is. I’m very excited about this opportunity and want to make a good first impression. Meeting is via zoom so I’m treating it like an actual interview. What are some good questions to ask? Appreciate the help :)
Our school has a very diverse population, but our district and building don’t embrace it very well, so I decided to start in my own classroom. I talked to my kids about family origins and then surprised them with a flag from each country of origin. Now when they walk in there is a small representation of who they are. It also sparks conversation about where the different flags are from and shows students just how diverse we all are. So far the kids love it and we’ve had some great conversations.
Feeling conflicted about wanting to leave my current company of a year where I feel I’m underpaid (despite praise from managers), though I love my coworkers and (sometimes) the work/clients. I know I can make a lateral jump somewhere else to make more, and I don’t want to get left behind in this hot market. I would be really sad to leave my current role, but really want/need more money. Anyone else going through this?
