Considering a move back to a big firm, but wanted to check in on COVID protocols. Are people at Deloitte, EY, or Accenture traveling yet? Are you seeing an increased number of remote or local roles popping up or am I just daydreaming of this possibility.

We are back to hiring. Most projects are still WFH that I have seen. I am hearing we won’t be back in office/ client office until end of year... management is looking to be conservative with the safety of our employees (good thing IMO!)

I spoke to an MD at Deloitte and they think summer is a possibility. Also got reached out by all 3 of those firms

We are hiring like crazy. No rush for travel yet but I have done so because of client needs but required very high level approval. Overall we will likely travel less but I can't see anything happening before June at the earliest. KPMG is VERY conservative about almost everything which actually helped us when Covid hit.

I think you’ll see more on-site activity in the summer. It’s not binary... it’ll vary by industry, type of work, client culture, etc.

If you are feeling sick or something during the day and WFH, do you feel comfortable napping it off and then getting back to work and working late if needed? I have friends that say this is totally normal and okay but I feel weird about it and can never actually rest to feel better if I do lay down

Could someone at Deloitte please share if you can still say remote or are required to go to office? Or any guidance from leadership.

Back in office and want to lose the covid weight (not much, but I am petite so just feel uncomfortable with the added pounds). Mentioned it to colleagues. Colleague who is in good shape (male) told me a few days ago he could do a program for me, and found a gym close to where we both live for us to go to, Is it weird to go with him? I probably shouldn’t think this but somewhere in my head I am thinking.... do I want to be in gym gear around this guy? Haha

Met with my boss today and was told “well you’re way better at your job than we expected...so keep doing that and just that. We might be able to have some more interesting work for you to do in 2-3 years”. Meanwhile...I am BORED TO TEARS!!!!!! And it’s tempting to quit, but I make more money than both of my parents combined EVER have, we had zero layoffs during COVID, and I really do love the people. At the end of the day...I guess I’m just hear to vent and to see if I’m the ONLY one.

I know everyone will just tell me to calm down but I started a month ago and am on the bench. Feels like the people I started with were picked up. Do all the work given to me, pass my tests, follow up with people to look to get on an engagement. I feel like Im doing fine but WFH I feel very lost and alone as to what I’m supposed to be doing. Doesn’t help that a lot of people are in the south and offline with the snow. Any guidance as to what a path forward should be to learn to relax?

Quick update for those who might be curious about the situation in my school and our lack of COVID precautions. I often comment on here about how my school stayed in person all year last year with almost no difference from a normal year. No mask mandate, no teachers or staff masking. 10% or less of students masking. Very few vaccinated here. Results: we have no students, staff, or family members in the hospital. Very few cases either. Two months of this now.
