Latham never gave us a clear answer to start with, but today they sent around and email saying that it’s fine to keep being flexible going into next year and that in-person stuff isn’t required.

STB specifically announced we were postponing further announcements just the other day. We’re “back” 1-2 days a week right now

Also following. Are there any other firms keeping wfh fully optional at least until early next year?

Lowenstein is in back the office at least 3 days a week.

Horrible headshots coping mechanisms - lay it on me. The firm decided to schedule new headshots at the worst possible time (WFH 15 I’m struggling to get off, none of my suits fit, my hair girl accidentally took my blonde too dark). Proofs came back and they are godawful - the photographer put me in the most awkward positions, so I look uncomfortable AND like an overstuffed sausage. I want to asinine for reshoots but I’m worried he’s going to make the exact same errors.

Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.

Do we have to inform HR if we are holding any offer. I have been interviewed at Infosys, capgemini and cognizant and i feel like as I have said I have offer of 11.6 and expecting more than that then there is no further communication from all these companies. As all my interview went well but there no further consideration could you please suggest what could be the reason.
