How is everyone doing WFH? I’m already missing seeing my coworkers and it’s only day one
Based in SF and tired of paying $$$ for rent. Want to find a remote product management job so I can move to somewhere cheap. Not sure how to do this- would love to chat with anyone living this dream
Best way to give notice during wfh? Currently going to office 1-2x a week but will not be in the office the remainder of this week.
WFH today and answered a conference call while taking a shit. Accidentally had the video on.
Which firms are still letting people expense overtime meals, aka WFH hasn’t changed expense-ability?
Has anyone taken the GRE or GMAT recently with it being remote? Curious on the procures taken now
I’m renegotiating my current pay package and I think we will get to a good compromise on total package if I get the right perks. What kind of perks have people been seeing lately? I’m Senior Counsel and have basic perks like remote work, cellphone, subscriptions etc. I’m particularly interested in childcare perks.
A few weeks ago our holding company said we’d be remote for all of 2021, that nobody would be forced to come into the office. Today we got an email from the CEO of our agency network (not it’s holding company) saying we’d have three months to make arrangements to come back; for instance, if things are better in June we’ll come back in September. I HATE these mixed messages. Are we remote for 2021, or not???
I currently work in hardware technical sales as a Senior Sales Engineer, OTE $110-120K with 1.5 YOE. Industrial automation equipment for a large player in the space. Software sales seems appealing due to remote work, more flexion, and higher pay comps. Any advice on how I should start to structure/build my experience for a move? Anyone have similar experience in switching and have recommendations on companies I should target?

What do you do to stay productive at work while WFH? My focus and drive has disappeared for whole days and I can’t bring myself to get anything done. We’re experiencing a heat wave and poor air quality from wildfires in the state, but I’ve been losing steam at work days before this started.
Hello my fellow PAs, How are your clients handling COVID since most aspects of our jobs went remote? I’ve been working through emails and less phone calls. But I doubt this will hold up much longer. What do you think?
For those that work from home, do you often find your self playing with your phone while you’re in a call and not paying attention to what’s going on in the call?
"Is it as Asperger Syndrome, or legit sociopathy....🤔." Serious question I have about a client. Legit can't tell.
I am a BTA, will soon be starting a new project. I have been rolled off of a project previously because the client thought I did not offer inputs (I did do a lot of work behind the scenes) contd...
After summer, I’m due to start my career as a big law associate. And I’m scared to death. Imposter syndrome is crippling me, despite having performed very well at both Ivy League undergrad and law school, as well as the bar exam. Maybe it’s my background - raised by an alcoholic, abusive single mother and making it against all odds and thinking I statistically should be in prison, dead or on disability. How can I deal with this fear of failing?
Happy Friday again Fish! Please DM me if you’re looking to make a switch to BCG and want a referral, there is a huge push for EHs right now.

Hi all, anyone knows about "Business Sweden"? I'm thinking mostly about work life balance and culture for non-swedish people at a local office in continental europe, but any insight is appreciated.
Has anyone in the WPP network been promised a promotion/raise and then suffered through the annual Q4 “cash push” freeze? Did you finally get it in Q1? If so, when? Was it worth the wait?
Traveling home for the holiday tomorrow morning- likely drunk, w/ a suitcase full of dirty clothes... Just like the old college days.
I’m planning to buy the study materials for the SHRM-CP certificate through Amazon. What are the best ones to obtain?
Quoted $100-120K, 10% bonus, no RSU for Sales Strategy & Ops at Salesforce (4.5 YOE). Super lowball right?
Had an interesting issue this past week. Batch of client data looked normal in Excel, but when imported into our analysis software that we use for larger data sets and their manipulation (cont.)
There have been many positive changes in my life and while I feel better, at the same time I am scared of losing it soon. Changed to a job that has better culture and aligns with my goals, got more active and social, back to my hobby, able to have free counseling now under new firm's benefits and the new therapist seems more helpful than the ones before, casually seeing some great guys… I feel my mental state is so "hyped" that idk if this "good" feeling will last…
Anyone able to comment on what working at Microsoft is like compared to consulting? Career growth, WLB, culture, etc. Thanks!
What do y’all do while on the bench?
How is Seattle to live in? Cost of living etc. What would be a comfortable salary there ? Not a big fan of cities like SF but more fond of cities like Austin etc. Is Seattle closer in nature to SF ?
Does anyone have any study tips or can suggest a helpful study tool for the HRCI SPHR exam? I used BenchPrepHR to help me prep and took a few practice test. I took my exam last week and unfortunately did not pass. Any tips would be helpful to help me prepare to retake in a few months.
Is unlimited PTO a curse or a blessing!
