Any firms “subsidizing” the costs of having a home office during this extended WFH period? My firm PwC announced a $250 payment to everyone to make up for any home office purchases (not that you had to buy anything to get the $250, everyone gets it regardless). Curious what other firms were doing.

Hi Fish I was recently diagnosed with a disability/ pretty severe diagnoses. I'm super scared (single, no support). trying to find ways to work around this( remote options)
Feeling pretty discouraged lately. Been working pretty intensely by myself (just me, a second year and partner on the file). He asks me things like, is your memory failing, how long have you been at the firm, have you attended new hire training (sends invite for remote new start training). At this point I don’t even want to work for this guy anymore, he makes me feel like a pile of bricks.
Has anyone tried www.standups.io to communicate with remote teams. Just started using it and really digging it. It’s so intuitive and allows for updates without coordinating live calls, etc. Have others tried?
Looking to move from smaller city/smaller agencies (both less than 100 people) to a larger agency (flexible on location and fine with remote right now) but even with 5 years of experience, feels like I’m having trouble getting past the gatekeeper. Any tips?

Looking for a good room divider while we’re WFH. My husband and I share an office, our desks face each other. I don’t want to look at the back of his monitors / the disaster on his desk anymore so looking for something that goes between our desks.

WFH is making me more depressed than usual. My work feels more meaningless than ever and everything takes twice as long to get done.
Doubledipping. Whose doing it during WFH, how are you managing, and what state are you in? I’ve read about it from both fronts. Unethical, maybe. Working multiple jobs without a conflict of interest, more power to you.
Project might be changing to travel every other week. Super unproductive and stir crazy when I work from home.
Tell me I’m not the only one finding it SO hard settling into a new job that’s completely remote, within a pandemic? It’s been 5 months and I’m struggling so bad.
Kind of annoyed I'm being billed out at my 2021 rate, but haven't gotten advanced to the next class and corresponding salary yet.

Do any other firms pay bonuses/give rewards for people who travel a ton outside of travel stipends like per diem? We get points to a reward platform but you’d have to travel years to get anything good
I’ve been planning to resign next week but my manager has left on premature maternity leave. The level above is on vacation. What is the best way to go about this?
Has anyone not traveled for work due to “medical” reasons so that you can try to conceive during your fertile window. I’m thinking about doing it. 21 months now...

Was able to get an interview through someone here. He was part of two separate interviews I had with the company. Unfortunately after the final interview I didn’t get the offer. Would it be appropriate to reach out to them thru here again asking for feedback?
