I’m tired. I love wfh. But balancing it with cooking, cleaning, teacher, parent, caretaker - I’m drained. I want to sleep and wake up when it’s all over
Was a bitch? My coworker routinely asks me how I am doing, what I’m working on, if everything is ok, joking that I’m starting my week on Wednesday because I’ve been remote for two days, etc etc. I find it distracting and invasive so today I told them to please stop asking questions that put me on the spot. Was I a bitch?
Imagine if this virus hit thirty years ago. If it wasn't for the internet, allowing WFH and communications, the economy would basically collapse. It could be alot worse.
All clients need to explain conference call etiquette when WFH to their employees. So far I’ve heard people washing dishes, talking to their spouse and kids, making lunch, and playing with pets...
While we are in this WFH situation, I like to blast music all day to keep me energized and engaged (when l’m not on Zoom calls). What are y’all listening to? (Spotify user here 💁🏾♀️ and playlist suggestions are welcome)
For folks who are stuck on India during this time.. will you be able to WFH? Legally can you do that? Would you need LCA and how long can you WFH..

Hello! I just received an offer from Deloitte USDC coming on as a Investigations Senior Consultant @ $110k, $5k signing bonus, 100% remote position (requested) Can Someone explain what benefits are afforded to me? Is the 401k match the same? Recruiter stated 3 weeks and 3 days of PTO…does that mean 18 days or 24 days? Also, can someone clarify the parental leave policy as compared to core? Can these be negotiated? I’ve been a 10 year Special Agent/Federal Agent and Officer with the military. Tx!
Moms out there wfh with a nanny that have an infant any suggestions for them to keep entertained? Mine is 10 months and I need some ideas for sensory play or just new fun activities for them
My position has became fully remote since the pandemic and now I want to move to a state where my company has no presence. Is this a okay thing to do or will I get fired??
I never thought that I'd say this, but I want to see offices and cubes make a return to the workplace. Either that or 70-100% work from home. Only having the option of open workspaces is terrible.
How are you dealing with WFH and small children? I either need to cut my workload or completely disregard my children. I don’t want to be put in the mummy track. This virus is like the mummy trap.
Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
I’m waiting for the work from home email, like a kid waiting for a snow day announcement.
Anyone else realizing that family, friends, and general relationships are SO much more important than accomplishments as a result of covid/WFH?
Starting at Accenture next week and wondering if there are any options to expense work from home stuff equipment as monitors? Thanks!
I miss the part of the pandemic where we all stayed home. I want to be a hermit forever.
Thinking about moving to a big city with the following preferences. I am thinking about Dallas, philly, or Chicago. What’s your experience living in those cities? Is there any other city I am missing? Appreciate any input! 1. Growing economy and population 2. Great food scene and things to do as a young professional 3. Relative LCOL can’t afford housing in NY, SoCal, etc. 4. Diversity of culture especially Chinese culture presence

Does it look bad if a company offers you a job but you don't accept it (mostly for reasons outside of your control)? What are the chances they'd ever reconsider you for a future position?
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.
Moms - I miss my toddler when I travel and a weekend together is not enough. He used to cry for mummy before when I left and now he just expects “mummy office” How do you do it ?
