I feel hopeless on my project and I cry regularly as soon as I hang up at least one call a day. (Woo work from home!)
How long do you think this will last? GT is remote up to 3/31, it will definitely go past that. My bet is summer, but some have said the rest of the year. Others until we get a vaccine. Thoughts?
I started with my bar prep company in March and have been working remotely since. I don’t feel like I was ever properly trained (can’t tell if that’s because of poor management or WFH or both) but I have a hard time with the contract management system and have made several mistakes. Of course, I wasn’t trained in the CMS and am only taught how to do something correctly after I’ve don’t it incorrectly. Any advice on keeping things in perspective? I feel like I’m underperforming but only with tech
Adapt and evolve to remote working - way more PRODUCTIVE, EFFECTIVE and EFFICIENT. No wasted time on commutes, non-sensical open-floor distractions and now more rested body and mind. Time management and mental health strategies are key.
“As a general rule of human civilization, we’ve lived where we work. More than 90 percent of Americans drive to work, and their average commute is about 27 minutes. This tether between home and office is the basis of urban economics. But remote work weakens it; in many cases, it severs the link entirely, replacing spatial proximity with cloud-based connectivity. What knock-on changes will this new industrial revolution bring?” Thoughts? https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2021/02/remote-work-revolution/617842/
Unassigned for the next couple weeks. Fighting the urge to work from home until I am assigned. #minivacation
Our office is moving to another building and is going to have a new “no assigned desk” policy. We just sit wherever we feel like sitting, like a 7th-grade cafeteria. Seems like their intention is good but also sounds like a terrible idea. Has anyone else’s office done this? Not even sure how I’ll be able to request a second monitor now

Husband and I are moving to Seattle in a couple of months. His office is in downtown Seattle and mine is in Sodo. He wants to be able to walk or bike to work. I will be mostly WFH but want to be relatively close to office. We also have a pup. Any recommendations for neighborhoods or apartment buildings much appreciated! We would prefer to be close to parks and grocery stores vs. bars.
The pains of being on remote projects for 5 months: my fat ass can't fit into my dress pants anymore

How open is EY to remote work?
Advice on dealing w/ difficult mgr? Specifically, she pushes team hard to get things to her review. Mgr doesn’t look at for 10-14days, then sends review comments and asks for updates by EOD/tmrw. Also not uncommon for her to interrogate team members about time they have charged, despite detailed time descriptions and hours being reasonable/in budget. Been 8 months working w her. I get anxious b4 mtgs w her. I have been interviewing. Unreasonable to ask counselor to roll off these engagements?

Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run
