Hi fishes, are there any us/uk Or other companies that allow work from home from India?? I m looking for QA positions
Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.

Literally watching leaves grow on the trees outside my apartment. Can not handle this WFH life.
How do you know if you’re just truly burned out due to lockdowns/WFH/etc. vs. actually hate your job and need to leave? I was doing okay up until about last December when things started going downhill. Now I dread every single work day and just live for the weekends. I can’t handle the pressures/stress of work that I felt I could even this time last year, & it is affecting my performance because I truly don’t care to fix things anymore. Not sure if this will pass or I need a full change…
Are people observing details at home that they had never noticed before? With a lot (!) more time spent WFH, the color of paint, the reflection of light, peacefulness of the backyard, ...
Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?
Anyone have recommendations for my next job? Worked two years on a data science team in industry and now have spent one year in data science consulting.

I’m a 2nd year civil litigation associate at a mid-sized firm in south Florida. My dream has always been to go in house but was dissuaded by law school professors telling me not to. I’m at a crossroads now because I’m OVER the billing, but my boss and direct team is quite possibly the most amazing and supportive group. My boss is always willing to let us work remote or take vacations. My question is, is the grass greener on the other side? Should I go in house now or wait another 3 years?
Starting to feel some separation anxiety/guilt as we are starting up daycare again next week for my 2yo. It was fine for him to go before and while I actually went to work but now my husband and I are perm. WFH. As much as I loved the chaos and having him around the last 3 months, it’s not forever sustainable. But now I feel guilty for working and not trying to make it work with all of us at home. Just venting as I am sad that this is time is ending.
Unassigned for the next couple weeks. Fighting the urge to work from home until I am assigned. #minivacation

Thanks for any info or advice you can share!

Assumptions during quant case studies: how often are you expected to come up with your own assumptions for numbers within a case study.
For every one concerned that the Covid vaccine manufacturers are protected to some point against lawsuits until 2024, that is true. It is due to the PREP Act. However Covid is not the first time it was activated. There have been quite a few since 2005 when it was enacted. There are some still in effect for smallpox, zika and anthrax for example. https://www.phe.gov/Preparedness/legal/prepact/Pages/default.aspx

I got a full ride to a top 5 MBA program but all I want is a relatively low-stress 9-5 (don’t want to do consulting or IB/PE). Still worth it to go? Or should I just get a chill job in data science?
Homeowners question. We have an old AC unit that will need to be replaced in the near future. It uses the old Freon that’s been discontinued. Do people usually pay outright for a new AC unit or is there like some kind of insurance we can add on if ours goes out?

TFW the pain of starting the day after 4 hrs sleep is eased by an enormous, new, super soft and fluffy Heavenly bath towel. Westin FTW.
family annual expense at approx 100k. Emergency savings currently at 60k. Brokerage account at 60k as well. Already have a house but would like to buy a bigger one in 5 years. Should we put the extra money each month towards savings account (which pays 0.6% interest) or stop contributing to savings and put more in investing? Looks like neither is good option at this time
