Been WFH for a year and was recently told I'm rolling off soon. Fuck me if I have to go back on the road. 😕

Just made that transition after 18 months WFH. I can tell you two things: 1) it fucking sucks exactly as much as you think it will. 2) you get used to your shitty old travel life pretty quickly.

It's a better setup and no cabin fever because it's the same work just no pressure or a SM breathing down your throat all day. You can take breaks and do what you want as you please. I'm in love with my WFH situation. It's 9a and I'm in bed chillin on FB lol. I dread the day I have to go back on the road. 😖

A1 Exactly! Literally just woke up 😂. WFH provides amazing work-life balance also as I get to see my little one during downtime throughout the day. I don't think I could transition to another project on the road after a year of this.

What kind of projects have you working from home over a year??

D1 IT Operations project in Federal

I don't understand WFH projects. Like literally from home or just local office?

@BCG Literally work from home.

OP, what level are you?

I didnt mean leave consulting in a bad way but i was in your shoes twice....and both times going back in the road was worse than a kick in the junk

Don't you get cabin fever? I was on the beach for a month and stayed home so much I thought I was gonna go insane.

D1 Im a manager in tech

@BCG We have a lot of tech projects where there is a team onsite bi-monthly but the rest of the team is developers from our India practice. I would imagine he probably oversees the development and manages the India team and there's a separate team managing client relations onsite.

@BCG We keep in constant communication using email, skype meetings, pings etc. there's really no difference For us communicating as a team or with the client.

@BCG This is an infrastructure outsourcing project. Basically running the IT system we built for them. Client interactions via skype and email is sufficient.

Is it just a coincidence or was Trump actually effective in keeping the peace in the Middle East? There were ongoing incidents, but no such major flare-ups in the last four years. I wonder if Biden really has no influence over MBS, Netanyahu and other key players to de-escalate.
