Shameless plug to a LinkedIn post that I wrote yesterday. Lists upon lists of remote companies including EMEA/APAC roles. https://www.linkedin.com/posts/chris-day-2021_opentowork-remotejobs-fishbowlapp-activity-6857385362189299712-Lboo
WFH Consultants in Jacksonville Mayor just announced that all parks and beaches in Duvall County are open. Who will be brave and who will stay away?
Anyone find it suspect when some Partners throw around "I'm sure we all would prefer to be in person..." type things? Like do you hate your family or something? Maybe I'm getting to used to remote work 😬
Has anyone sent out a survey about remote or Covid-19 job burnout/employee well-being that they can possibly share the template questions with me? I found the results for a survey sent out at Deloitte but didn’t have success at looking at some of the questions that were used. Any help would be incredibly appreciated!
Going to be starting a new job soon (in consulting) after a break when I adopted a dog. She is still learning and I don’t trust her to stay quite through all my meetings. Do you think this is going to be an issue? How can I best manage the situation while we’re WFH?
Husband Relies on Me for Lunch - I know this is dumb, but before the pandemic, my husband ate lunch at the office and I was generally in charge of dinner. He’s super flexible with buying takeout so I never found it annoying. Since the pandemic began though, my husband has begun relying on me to provide him lunch while WFH. I’m busy during the day, and we have different lunch preference schedules. He does not get how annoying it is to me to have to be in charge of his lunch. Am I in the wrong?
OMNICOM HASN’T ANNOUNCED WFH YET - WHAT ON EARTH ARE THEY WAITING FOR? WHY DO THEY NOT UNDERSTAND THE URGENT NECESSITY TO BE PROACTIVE HERE??
Does anyone work primarily out of a coworking space like wework or regus? New job is 100% wfh when not traveling (which is about once a month) and wondering if this would be a good option, since I have a kid on the way and will be harder to WFH.
Have your firms and companies begin to worry about your new hires over the next 1 to 5 years. Every one from the class of 2020 to the class of 2024 that went to brick & mortar colleges is negatively impacted in their overall education experience. So we should expect those grads to require special care when they join the workplace. We should also expect many tier 3, and some tier 2 universities to also struggle financially as remote learning becomes a more formidable competitor.
I'm definitely more productive remote. The office just provides too many opportunities for socializing. Plus I wouldn't feel ethical billing my client for my midday nap.
I feel for the jr’s who have started their careers in this remote world, missing out on all the experience that comes with being in an office surrounded by people and creative work instead of the silo of WFH. Any suggestions on how to keep them engaged and learning without it feeling forced with zoom tutorial sessions?
Are you guys enjoying this mandatory work from home? Or you are so bored and ready to go back to office?
I currently have 1 luxury watch which I primarily wear on the weekends. I’m thinking of adding an Apple Watch for more daily usage while being out in shorts/sweats as I WFH. Any recommendations on which to get or if it is even worth it?

Planning a WFH trip to NYC in May for a week. Hotels seem expensive and Airbnb’s are better priced, but wanted to ask are there any other alternatives that I am missing that I should check for better deals?
Anyone has experience working at zoom?
Honest question - do others here wake up at like 3 or 4 AM just randomly since quarantine / WFH has started? I used to sleep soundly through the night but I feel like this happens multiple times a week and I live a very active lifestyle so feel like I should be out until my alarm wakes me
I don’t want to workout anymore. I just want to eat delicious food and watch tv and grow fat. I put so much pressure on myself all the time to go to the gym. I’m not losing weight either. I wish I could be okay with this. Do any of you feel this way? How do you deal with it?

What would it take for you to move away from excel for building business cases, financial modeling, or cost benefit analysis? What if there was an alternative product to make it faster and easier? If it had the same flexibility would you adopt?
Glad to see the bowl grew from 1 to 5. Modest, but gains nonetheless! Do elective procedures actually come back after covid-19 peaks? Clients already brainstorming how to build trust post-pandemic ..
PwC vs RSM in ATL? A little background on me: audit senior for 3+years on private practice only, wanting to leave current firm before busy season, I’ll probably still work on the private side after transitioning to either firm and would like some work/life balance cuz I have young kids to take care of. Will have chance to get promoted to manager in 1~2 years.

Daydreaming.... Wouldn’t it be nice to know what your client team is “really” before accepting a new role? DYK- Is there a “rate your professor” like resource for client accounts? 🤓
Just had a call with a group of analysts with first names like Jackson, Lincoln, Dempsey, Hudson, Hunter, and Kennedy. If you're having kids soon, I hope you'll help make this the generation that stops giving their children last names as first names. No child deserves this.
