Anyone else currently dealing with the fact that their job/project is exacerbating the deterioration of their mental health?
My project is remote for a couple of weeks thinking of working from Spain where family is instead of working from home. I don't want to transfer though. Anyone been there done that?
I'm 7 months in and doing a really bad job at my current project because I hate consulting and the job itself makes me really miserable. I feel really helpless and don't know what to do because the worse I do the worse opportunities I'll get at this firm later on and then I won't be able to leave. I've been interviewing with some other companies but no offers so far, afraid I won't get any because I'm leaving so soon. Truly feel so helpless and lost, I really want out.

What happens if you miss Jury Duty due to client commitments? Any advice on how to get out of it is greatly appreciated!
[1/2] Hi all, I apologize because I know there have been posts on this bowl with similar subject matter recently, but I really need advice. I am at a risk of losing my job at the end of this month if I don’t make some changes to my work performance, specifically meeting my monthly billable hour requirement. My work and my work product is not an issue - my partner has repeatedly commended me on everything I produce, but my billable hours are seriously lacking.
Tax work at my law firm is not enough to keep me busy. Maybe I could start doing work in another department to supplement my billable hours. Is anyone here a part timer in another group? I’m thinking investment funds or start ups? Anyone else do this and any advice?
I hate the cultural norm that makes drinking and eating rich food almost mandatory for client entertainment and/or team bonding on travel jobs. Any tips on how to stay fit and stick to a healthy diet?
You’re given a brief for an OOO campaign. Could be cool. How many days are you given before you have to show concepts to the ECD? And to the client? Curious about time expectations at different places.
I often think about the client/agency as very similar to going to a restaurant. The agency beunf restaurant. Some customers want to pick something off the dollar menu. Others a gourmet meal.
What's everyone hoping to get for Christmas? I got my present early: five months of billable work to start off 2016.
My HR rep told me that to apply for your CPA license in MA you only need 1 year of work experience, not 2009 billable hours. Didn't sound right- can anyone confirm/deny?
Looking at my project assignments like...
Would you rather travel every week or have a 90 minute commute to a local client client without any per diem or travel points???
17 years in 850 in production 12 years to go. Never lost a client in a cfp conversation. I make educating myself a priority. Any reason whatsoever I should put myself through the cfp process?
Opinions and any information regarding billable hours and quality of work life at Stockwell, Harris, Woolverton & Helphrey...anything info appreciated!
Colleague of mine got her rating yesterday- I'm positive she's going to quit and screw us over on this project because she is feeling some sort of way about the firm. Can't blame her but thanks mgt :/
How do you all track your billable hours? Want to move away from an excel sheet I manually update. Do you guys use software?
Has anyone here transitioned into teaching from another profession through alternative certification? Did you feel like you were prepared for the classroom by the end?
Having my 1st baby and trying to figure out invites for the baby shower and could use input. My SIL /MIL won’t host a family shower for me. My mom thinks it’s tacky for her to host anything. My friend is hosting a shower & told me to invite anyone I want. I’d like to invite family on both sides. I don’t want my friend to be stuck with the bill, so my hubby said he’d pay for it; my mom freaked out and said it’s like I’m hosting one for myself. She wants to not invite any family now. Thoughts?
I billed a .5 this morning on a break between bar exam MPTs. I don’t know if this is an accomplishment or just sad.

I just moved to the US and got the Chase Sapphire Preferred credit card. Now I am seeing amazing bonus point offers from different cards. Is there any harm in opening 2-3 cards at once?

I am on h1b right now. My husband has GC, he will be eligible to apply for citizenship next year. Should we wait until he becomes citizen to apply GC or should I apply now ?
Not sure how much longer I can stay cooped up in my house. Been one of the people abiding by social distancing / quarantine, and with the spike (due to more testing, people not social distancing, whatever) its scary to think that we could still be doing this next year. Anybody else in the same boat? How are you dealing with the repetitiveness of WFH?
How much of this job is making up useless work so it looks like we’re being productive for the client?
Out of all the big 4 companies which is the best in terms of a IT work (tech assurance, cyber, ... etc) I know it defers by revenue or number of clients or growth. But any input would be great.
Potential agency boomerang having a hard time making a decision to stay brand-side or go back. Need some advice! Do I leave the brand, being "the client," fun work, great WLB, as well as the most toxic work environment I've ever experienced and meh pay? Do I go back to agency lead a new team with significant responsibilities, forget about WLB, sell my soul alongside smart people, get great pay and benefits? PS: I'm a mom and brand-side for 5 years. What do I need to know!? Thank you!
