Consulting

Has anyone done a long-term remote project for more than three months? I can work out of my home office, but doesn't it get isolating?

I report to an MP and Sr associate, both of whom work from home 2+days/week. I know they’ve “earned the right” but at what point is this lack of leadership counterproductive to first year development

Whoever is the chair of this bowl--please pin one of the substantive ergonomic chair threads. Keeps coming up endlessly--and will likely happen again and again in this extended WFH surreal moment in all our personal and professional lives.

I’m an Associate XD and I feel like whenever I give input on projects it’s mostly received with slight skepticism from the management supervisor. Is this the norm when you’re a junior on a project?

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.

We have had 2 crappy clients leave after 6 months of "unacceptable performance." These guys are performance whores, but still don't understand why people are so short-term focused.

Question for tax people. Am I subject to US tax on rental income or sale of property outside of the US as an H1B worker? Seems like the presence test would apply in this case and the answer may be yes.
