Has anyone here left their job over return-to-work/WFH policies? Anyone thinking about doing it?
Curious as to how other small firm owners are handling transition to have employees work from home? I employ several older paralegals who cannot seem to get themselves set up. Prefer not to lay off.
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.
4 month old refuses bottles completely at daycare. I'd rather not reverse cycle, since sleep is already so precious. Has anyone had success arranging full time WFH while figuring feeding out?
Really afraid that MBAs will go back to remote and that I will waste the opportunity to get the time of my life
Anyone else feel everything takes three times as long WFH? I’m worried partners will think I’m taking too long to finish simple projects.
Hear me out because this is somewhat work related. i think I’m a porn addict. This probably has been going since I was a teen but now that we are wfh this actually affecting me at work. Did anyone experienced the same thing? How did you cooe?
I have no idea how to get motivated again. I am a legit zombie that sits and types for hours and hours without talking to anyone. I feel like a shell of a person. And nobody in management cares about any associates well being in this remote environment. I’m a person who likes to talk about things, but I am well aware that nobody in management would even want to actually do anything to help. Is anyone else feeling the same?
In FL. Have option to WFH but partners tell us “not to make a habit out of it.” Have to Email in every morning that we plan to WFH so they keep track b/c some people’s hours are slipping. (Continued)
Our school is in 100% Remote learning right now. I have a kindergarten student whose goals are: Participating during circle time, completing a task before transitioning, and to play with his peers during unstructured play time.

Looking for recommendations for solo trips where I could “work from home” and enjoy exploring after hours. I live in Colorado currently. Anyone doing this and may have recommendations? Thinking of flying to San Diego first.
A big surprise challenge in wfh has been my spouse seeing me around the house and expecting me to help out with daily chores and helping with kids then getting frustrated when I’m not able to get up and help. Our whole marriage, when I’ve been home that means I’m not working and can help her out with things, but now that rhythm has changed and it’s hard. Anyone else going through this? Hoping we’re not the only ones 🤞🤞😬
Is anyone else's eyes starting to go bad? WFH - related? I had 20/20 vision and I'm 27... but started to notice my right eye isn't as clear anymore.
Anyone know of any companies that are hiring right now and have a normal work schedule (& are WFH currently)? I’m tired of working 90 hour weeks. Doesn’t have to be accounting, in fact unless
Any thoughts on Morning Brew as a workplace? Love their newsletter and podcasts. I am super keen about the space but I'm not sure if it's worth the pay cut from Manager level in MBB
Searching for hobby suggestions/ideas. I’ve been struggling to focus lately and it’s been difficult for me to focus on my usual hobbies (reading, building an app side project etc). Ideally, looking for a hobby that can help with de-stressing and decompressing during my unwind time after logging off in the evenings; not something super strenuous. Thanks in advance!

With the office opening back up I've been meeting up with coworkers for a few drinks over the last couple of weeks and I just got a positive test 😳😳. We were open to having a baby but didn't think it would happen so quickly so I was having up to 3 drinks when I went out. Meeting with my OB tomorrow but would appreciate any words of wisdom in the meantime
Going through one of the phases where I’m hanging on by a thread (and I’m not even frequently traveling right now!!), ugh. Preschool parent visits, rsvps to birthdays and school events...
Any MBB life sciences professionals willing to connect? Looking for overall career guidance. Thanks 🙏
Mother superannuated today and was able to watch her farewell speech. Feeling very emotional (i.e. tearing up at midday) as I recall our humble beginnings and how much my middle class family has sacrificed and achieved. My parents sent their only daughter for higher education abroad and it is tough to see them grow old. Getting exposed to so many new facets of life as a 25F…. just one of those days. Kind words only please 🙏

Ladies, How do you feel about dating someone with a child from a previous marriage? It's bothering me for some reason - I feel badly about it, I don't know why I feel this way. It just seems like such a special connection to have with someone and makes my connection with him seem less significant. Please no mean comments, I'm just being honest and wondering what other people's experiences are. TIA
I’m leaving Big 4 as a S2 and my parents are disappointed that I’m giving up my full career potential... My counselor at the firm is also saying I’m selling myself short. Did anyone else feel (cont.)
