EY 🐠 - For the WFH monitor reimbursement, can I purchase it using my personal credit card or do I have to wait until my AMEX card comes in?
Has anyone here converted to full time remote employee? If so, did you have to post LCA for 10 days at your home?
I really wish it were possible as a Senior to take a "quiet" or remote day every week and focus on work uninterrupted. I get that it would be a challenge for staff/mgrs but think it would be worth it.
Guidehouse folks! What perks do you have, i.e. coffee and meals expensed, Uber/Lyfts expensed, flexible/remote work?
Need a wfh setup / monitor. Recommendations?

This is my first job, and the experience is super weird as its WFH. What mistakes have you made in your career that you wish had been avoided?
I think my firm is going to be moving towards global flexibility regarding work from home. They won't force us to live in certain cities with offices. Where in the US is there a beach or beach town that gets all four seasons? Is such a thing possible? I love the ocean, but Fall is my favorite season.
I got offer from deloitte for 13.5 fixed with 10%vp and EY for 14.5 fixed plus 5%vp, publicis sapient for 17 fixed with permanant work from home and no vp. Which one is good? I have 5 years of experience

Any 🐠 looking for a place to stay in Boston this winter? I am taking advantage of 100% remote work and going to Utah. Looking to rent out my furnished 2 BR 2Bath apartment, downtown- water view of the harbor next to the aquarium. $4k a month (renting at cost)
Previously burnout but now recovered from wfh. Unsure if I should still quit since most of my friends are gone Background: -homegrown senior and have received early promotion (Cont.)
Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?
Okay I’m going to say it if hasn’t been said before: I want the option to go back to the office now. I get some of you have kids or prefer wfh but I can’t stand it. I hate being cramped up and some people also live with toxic family members. We should make it optional for those who want/need to come back
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.

Groundhog Day - WFH edition
Went to kids holiday party using Lyft. My son gets car sick easily so I warn the driver right away. Lots of traffic + he breaks pretty hard = my 2yo threw up 2 blocks before we get off. 5 min later ..
Are industry exit opportunities at the SM level much better than at the M level? Tired of the consulting lifestyle but only 1-2 yrs away from making SM most likely. Worthwhile to stay a bit longer?
Why do previous generations feel the need to belittle the hard work of younger people? My parents always insist they used to put in as many hours as I do when they were my age, but I know it’s not true because I was actually old enough to remember it! (They could afford having a kid. I can’t)
Lolz is it bad that I almost want to get let go from my job cause I’m so tired of working. 60+ hours scheduled for the rest of the summer with more hours planned on getting tacked on. Honestly not sure if I’m also salty cause no salary increase, or if this is just how PA works.
Any recommendations on books/podcasts (and other sources) about CM? Not just to expand technical skills but also soft skills and external consulting?
Anyone have any insight on the culture/personality differences between the Northeast and SoCal?
Another final round interview today that I thought went really well. Time to constantly check my phone and email and not get any work done / get my hopes up...
I am most likely quitting within the next 2 months. Feel like I’m planning to leave at an important point in my project’s lifecycle. I’m only 1 year in. Have a backfill in mind. Am I overthinking?
Female 🐠 that have divorced. Were you able to recover, especially financially? Looking back would you stick it out? I would primarily be supporting our child since I earn more. Just overwhelmed with the prospect of starting over/carrying everything on my own but the lure of peace/relief/happiness is intense.
Lyft vs uber for rewards? Company politics removed, which has a better rewards system? Flying United not delta FYI and have enjoyed the $5 uber cash every 500 points
As soon as my husband and I got engaged my mother in law flipped a switch. She went from being nice and sweet to bitchy and passive aggressive. It’s so awful dealing with her that I have to drink when I’m around her to deal. Anyone had a similar experience? She completely tainted my entire wedding with her behavior. It’s a losing battle to talk to my husband about it because he can’t help but decent her.
Anyone else historically a star performer and being told their performance is subpar since COVID? Not sure if it’s the additional stress/ distractions at home with a 10 mo old, wfh burnout/lack of motivation or what, but most importantly, wondering how to get past it and bounce back?

I've been working towards a T10 mba since before I graduated from undergrad. Hustled at work to get early promotions and the best projects. This allowed me to go from $60k to $115k TC at 1 YOE.

Can anyone provide compensation expectations for M1 in the EY Los Angeles office in the People Advisory service line. Currently 3yrs senior consultant, MBA, 8 YoE. Thanks!
I can legitimately see why an mba or a business ug would help Strategy consultant’s, but I don’t see why it would help non-Strategy consultant’s (implementation, transformation, pmo). Why for latter?
Hey folks. Any suggestions for an immigration lawyer in Chicago. Wish to do a consultation about the different possibilities on my visa status.
