Guidehouse folks! What perks do you have, i.e. coffee and meals expensed, Uber/Lyfts expensed, flexible/remote work?

Btw, a lot of people are on the bench because they don’t get along with the client and / or team members they were staffed with or they end up doing something that is not aligned with their skill set or what they negotiated before being hired. So, word of caution... if you want something more structure, get into a big4 and avoid public sector

Hahahaha Hahahhaa you’re dreaming!! But, to be fair, offices are not bad when you’re on the bench or can work from the office (sometimes free lunch, free drinks and free coffee). Depending on the engagement, you can wfh... the projects I’ve been staffed for so far we’re flexible. But it’s not always the case...

Our clients are typically local so these travel perks (expensing food/transportation) aren’t really relevant. Sometimes there’s firm/team sponsored events so there’ll be free food. There’s also often flexible work. That’s not atypical.

Free meals and taxis home when you working late enough, but this isn’t really a perk...

I’ve been told that I’m going to be teaching “in person” on Dec 2. We have been Remote since March 13th. Just the “high needs SPED and ELL”will be in class. I have 2 kids out of my 6-sub-separate developmentally delayed students and the ELL teacher will have 3 out of her 14. We will both be in separate classrooms and the adults will change-not the kids- we share one student. I was told if we are at least 8 ft apart the students can take off their masks... anyone else hear this?

Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.

So my roommate has been staying elsewhere since we began quarantining and has been returning intermittently. Roommate has been paying half the electricity bill, which I have felt weird even charging for, but my friends have insisted that it is still both our responsibilities. Given WFH is permanent as of now, the electricity has been a bit higher with me home for the 10 hours I’d normally be gone. And with summer approaching, AC is going to double that cost. Do I still keep charging half? AITA?

I recently met someone in another country where I’m working remote. He asked me to be his girlfriend but I’m moving in about a month. He doesn’t want to do distance unless I move back (which is an option with remote work, but visas are tricky). I really like him but don’t know if I’d be able to move back here between work/borders/etc. Do I keep seeing him and just try to enjoy the now? A part of me just feels so sad about leaving and breaking up. Idk if it’s worth it.

I’m a 2nd year civil litigation associate at a mid-sized firm in south Florida. My dream has always been to go in house but was dissuaded by law school professors telling me not to. I’m at a crossroads now because I’m OVER the billing, but my boss and direct team is quite possibly the most amazing and supportive group. My boss is always willing to let us work remote or take vacations. My question is, is the grass greener on the other side? Should I go in house now or wait another 3 years?
