6th year L&E associate here and thinking about transitioning to a position with better WLB. How do you go about getting a government job and are they flexible about WFH, at least a couple of days a week? Recruiters reach out all the time, but always about other firm positions. Tips/ advice much appreciated!
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.
Help & suggestions please. I don’t have parents and recently had a kid. I am having trouble in recovery and my daughter is a preemie. I am going back to work in December but can’t send kid to daycare due to health. My aunt who raised me wants to visit and help me out , see places too. With the travel ban going away , can she get a visitor visa so that I have someone reliable in the house along with the new nanny. Are visitor visas possible to get now ? MIL is another option but she is aged.

Pregnant IBanking Director who will be a single mom needs advice on negotiating maternity leave - I have been with a boutique Ibank for 10 hrs and wish to ask for paid maternity leave and flexible WFH for another 3 months. Can you share any precedents form the industry? Our company policy is terrible (12 wk unpaid) and I wish to use my leverage to advocate for changing the policy for all future parents, not just for myself. Many thanks in advance.
Anyone understand how the DTAA come into play with working remote from India for an extended period of time? I believe you cannot work for more than <> no. of days without triggering a corporate tax obligation due to ‘permanent establishment exposure’. Trying to fill in how many days that is AND whether this applies in reality or not.
How are people "networking" now that we are wfh? I mean, you are barely even aware if people still work in the same company. Previously, you at least saw them every now and then at the office but now... They could have fired half the company and I wouldn't know
Need 3,000 PQPs by Nov 30 to retain United 1K status as part of Fly to the Finish offer. What’s easiest way to get these last PQPs?? Just blow out on a first class flight?
What TV channel/ shows you guys have going on in the background while you work from home - for stress release / avoid anxiety
Does the WLB get better when you move up? Or does it get worse with increased travel, more hours, and weekend work? Wondering if it’s even worth pursuing partnership.
Does anyone have any tips on conquering fear of flying? I have a phobia that I will have a panic attack on the plane while flying alone. I just got prescribed Xanax just for the flight but have never taken it before and would love to know if that has helped you? (I’m not scared of crashing or anything, I’m just claustrophobic and hate not feeling in control and have panic attacks about having panic attacks haha.)
Serious question. What baby items are most expensive? (other than diapers, formula, college education, nanny.. Etc)
Used Skiplagged to book a United flight. Hidden city on a one way saved $300 per person, so was worth it. I know conventional wisdom is to not connect to MileagePlus, but it should be fine if it's just one time, right? Seems like I could just say someone in my party felt sick so we missed second leg.

Salary negotiation Applied to a job, agreed a salary expectation of £125k to £135k. Discussed range as achievable on two separate occasions. 3 interview rounds later, offer of £106k. Strong pushback from me on the call and a follow up note. Awaiting a revised offer. Any thoughts on that strong a lowball opening offer? I am both irritated and intrigued.
401k rollover question — has anyone rolled over their 401k to their Roth IRA instead of a traditional IRA. or new company 401k? Can you explain your strategy here?
Is there an “ideal” time to interview?
Hi everyone at Boston Consulting Group as well as those applying there currently. I was hoping to understand how long does it take for someone from HR to reach out to schedule an interview after completing the Pymetrics test. Any leads would be much appreciated for this stressed candidate!
I had a final interview on Friday, and was explicitly told they would be giving me an offer. The wait is killing me. When can I reach out to follow up on status?
For Deloitte S&A, is the case interview interviewer-led or candidate-led? I thought it was candidate-led but someone just told me they have been interviewer-led..
Tips on planning lessons that could be delivered over any medium: online, in person, flipped, etc?
I think I’m burnt out from my current company. I’ve been completely unmotivated in my professional and personal life. I feel a bit discouraged because I don’t think I want to be an HR BP anymore, but my background is extensive in the HRBP role. I would love to enter into the DEI space and have tried to get involved in extra DEI related activities to help as I apply for roles in this space, but would be open to any pointers if anyone has any on how to pivot my career?
If I get rejected after final rounds at Big 4 is it weird to immediately apply to the same firm but different role? Will they know I just got rejected? Experienced hire btw
