Hello, I am new here:) I am currently a restaurant owner who is the only employee. Due to COVID and people not wanting to work (and living in a very small town) I do the cooking, serving and management of it all. Now I am looking for a work from home job because I am now expecting and would like to be home more for our new baby. I have been looking for about a month now, and applied some places but it’s hard coming into this blindly and there seems like there is a lot of scam companies.
What are people's thoughts of the Roger's park area? Will be able to get a nice 2 bed up there and use 1 for an office while I work from home. All other places in my price range south r sml studio/1bd
A little different spin than a lot of these topics.. I manage a +$1B North American supply chain organization. As you'd expect, the last 2 years have forced us to throw our old play books out the window at Owens Corning. I am considering a specialized grad degree, MS in global supply chain. Needs to be online due to young children and demands from job. Looking at Penn State / Michigan State, any others? I am from the mid west but that obviously doesn't matter if remote based. Thx
I get my jobs done, is it alright if I wfh 3 maybe 4 times a month right after busy season?
heard about this app a long time ago. other day i downloaded it to look into an activation idea. and holy shit the 🫖🐸 TEA 🐸🫖 is plentiful (and hot when deep in the comments). once a former fishbowl hater, now i’m kinda with the shits ngl. i like it in the same way i like a ♻️🗑 TRASHY 🗑♻️ reality TV show. it’s my first post so im trying to nail like the proper tone for a ~confident colleague~ but don’t want to sound pretentious or anything. anyway who gets high at work? WFH=weed from home amirite 🤪
Is anyone else struggling heavily with feeling isolated from WFH 24/7? I graduated/moved/started my job a year ago & feel like I’m missing so many opportunities to build rapport with people at work. I moved back home for the time being, since I don’t want to be alone in my apt for months on end. I feel very alone because so many people on my team are always talking about how they wish we could WFH forever. I feel like the only one whose mental health is not taking this very well.
Isn’t it true most people don’t want to go back in to work? Why do they keep gaslighting and making people go back? We’ve proved we can do it!!!
How are the agencies handling remote working post vaccine roll-out? Anyone making public statements yet? Interested to keep a tab on which companies will allow virtual workforce going forward.
Those of you that recently started a new gig in a completely remote environment, how are you bonding with your team? My team mostly does phone calls with no video interaction. It’s kind of hard to connect. Any advice?
I need to get new dress shoes, but I’ve gone fully remote and they’ll only see use maybe 20 days a year. What’s a fine budget pair under $150? I’m not trying to buy AE or something else when I’m barely going to need them.
So it’s looking like I will be able to work fully remote. Looking for opinions on living in Florida. Politics and grumpy old people aside, how has it been for you? My partner and I are really tired of the cold and wouldn’t mind trying something new for a year or two. Would love to hear about your moving experiences below.
My workplace sent out an email that “it is expected a time will come very soon where you will need to work from home”. Any tips for working from home and keeping focused? TBC
I am thinking of doing a road trip (still social distancing) from Miami FL to Maine. What are some good stops along the way with beautiful small towns and nice trips to beautiful mountains/lakes? Don’t care about ocean that much. Perks of WFH.
After working from home for the last 9 months, I do not want to ever go back into the office. I'd like to stay permanently remote. Advice for bringing this topic up with my manager? Or should I hold off on asking until we actually need to return (probably not until May or June at this rate). I feel like I am just as productive wfh and would like the ability to move away from my current city.
Has your agency made a policy on work from home after the pandemic? Is every agency going back to “normal”?
Recs for outdoor pools, either gym or condo assn that allows outside members, and WILL BE OPEN THIS SUMMER? I really missed pools last summer and with WFH, would like to soak up the sun at end of work day when feasible.
Share your wfh lunch (or dinner) pictures below.
Let's say one was looking to leave their firm pre-corona, and received a job offer while WFH. How would one resign from their firm during WFH as professionally as possible...
How is everyone staying healthy while WFH?

I have gained some weight during the past months. On a one-on-one with a partner, I got a “friendly advice” to get back in shape since looks matters to clients.
I want to learn about genuine morning routines. Not the 2am every day to lick Himalayan salt of the back of my foam roller to renergise the mind and soul etc etc. What are your morning routines and how does it impact your day. Thank you kindly
Everything is harder for an Indian immigrant. It was a battle to get picked in the H1-B visa “lottery”. I haven’t seen my family in 3 years because I can’t find a visa stamping appointment at the US consulate in India. Flight tickets to go to India in the month of December is $5000. Millions are waiting to get a visa and the government, that should serve its people, is creating more roadblocks for its citizens. How is this not being spoken about?
Overheard couple on first date last night - all was going well until he told her he voted for Trump. She told him she was marching today, went to the bathroom and never came back 🙉🙈
My senior manager told me that I work for him and I have to do whatever he says, I told him "no, I do not work for you and I work for Deloitte, and I am willing to collaborate with you to do what I can to make the project most successful". He told me that I am going to have severe consequences for what I said.

I’m on PTO doing some final studying for my GMAT in 2 days but my PPMD is pinging me to help on something. I told him about this PTO well in advance (several months ago), but I don’t want to disclose that I’m taking the GMAT to him which is why I will not be doing work. What should I do?
What’s your secret luxury indulgence? What gives you real pleasure? Not obvious sh1t. But real deep pleasure?
Friend got laid off from Collaborative Solutions today. She obtained Workday certifications while employed there. They are requesting her to pay back the cost (6K) of the certifications. Advice?
Why are the people bitching about only getting $600 the same people who want to continue to pay more taxes?
I come from an agency, so help me understand: most if you fly to some place every Monday and sit in a chair at a desk in a spare room or storage space with a couple others until 6 or 7, then fly home?
Are other MBBs giving raises? Heard BCG was increasing pay across the board. New C base of 165k?!?
Idioms you've said wrong. Go.
