I don't know about other Big 4's. But, - EY saved on earned leaves by directing no carry over - EY saved on virtual counselling sessions, virtual new promotions program and other virtual events - EY saved in electricity, water and other office consumable services - EY earned extra from Salary cuts - EY supplied zero WFH essentials - EY garnered extra profits and broke last year records So where the hell are the employee monetary profits? Feels like EY is mimicking PM cares fund. #PeanutBonus
Anyone a member at Soho House that has any tips on trying to become one? New to the city and just trying to meet people and have a fun place to work during the day when I’m remote!
My skin isn't the best and with WFH - I have been doing the basics : moisturiser and sunscreen everyday which has really helped. Next year, I'm likely to be back full time in the office and on client site - and I want to do the bare minimum makeup wise. Can someone provide me your "bare minimum" routines and also - makeup/skincare brands! :)

Thinking of relocating out of the Chicago area to begin to subtle down. Does anyone have recommendations on states/areas to move to for cloud engineers/consultant that work from home?
Happy Thursday everyone! I know that as a profession and especially during this unprecedented time we constantly experience and are bombarded with negativity. Including the negativity in our lives away from work, which we see every time we get on social media platforms, or watch the news etc... therefore I thought we could put some positivity out there today and share some positive experiences that have been a result of this wfh/quarantine/pandemic.
Month 5 of 20/4 intermittent fasting. Down 25 pounds to ~170 lbs (stabilized there) M/53. WFH was hard but keeping fridge and cupboards from temptations (and still no booze for three months) has helped. It can be done--miss ice cream! but eating healthy in the 4-hour window. Two cups of black coffee/lots of water btw 9 pm and 5 pm. Doable folks. Don't give up. But am not exercising from home (just long walks 2x a week) due to intense work. Need to but hard to get back on exercise saddle.
Anyone else experiencing strain in your relationships being at home all day with your significant other? I usually did well separating work things stress, priorities etc… when I was traveling. Literally able to leave it behind at the office and take my commute home either flying or otherwise as my time to myself to decompress so ready to take on family life when I got home. But with WFH I find myself struggling with this as stress is bleeding in with how I interact at home.
Would you accept capping billable hours at 40/week in exchange for being able to work while completely remote?
Trying Copilot, and so far kind of loving it! Only in first week of two week trial but this may be what I needed. Personal 1:1 remote trainer that programs all of my workouts based on my needs!
Is there a time when people generally “start” work remotely? Back when I was a summer before the pandemic, I commonly saw people go in between 9-10 am but I didn’t know what the norm is now that we are remote. I see emails at 8 am and I’m not sure if I’m expected to respond then or not. Also if you are on a deal where some of the members are in NY and you’re in the Midwest, are you expected to go by their times and be on when they are on?
Is any of the Big 4 forcing you back to the office? Thinking about joining but don’t really want to give up WFH.

I just want to hear the explanation for why staff who started during COVID are doing so badly on average (and I have heard this from every level including staff themselves) from the pro 100 percent work from home people. If you agree it’s real, what is your solution? If it can’t be fixed, are we just accepting that the people we expect to backfill our positions aren’t going to be ready?

Hypothetical situation - if your client is a health provider and you get an email from the CEO that says all health workers can get the vaccine.

Realistically, with only two years of work experience and a 3.3 GPA, are H/S out of the question? Am I out of the running for M7? And if so, how can I strengthen my application now for the fall?
