For those with dogs 🐕- do you feed your dog a lunch? I used to only feed 2x a day, but with WFH, I feel compelled to give him some nibbles when I take a lunch break. 🍔
I am curious how other inclusion teachers are being utilized when the school is doing remote learning. I find that I am sitting in the zoom class and have very little opportunity to contribute. I am having discussions with my teachers on ways that I can better support them and the students when remote.
Hello everyone, I was wondering if the possibility of 100% remote (advertised in papers) is really happening in Deloitte UK. Trying to move from Deloitte PT to Deloitte UK and would like to know if that is a possibility! Thank you!
I have work to do but I’m tired so gonna take a short nap. I’ll finish later and work late if I need to. I won’t miss a deadline, and my team won’t suffer. Good night! This has been an ad for keeping WFH/hybrid going instead of forcing people in 5 days a week.
Hey pharma fishes - I head up a boutique agency focused primarily on healthtech, including several companies who are service/solution providers for life sciences orgs. We’re looking for FL writers who know the business of the industry, and can tackle B2B content for product developers. Interesting brands and an opportunity to hop on the various ways they’re digitizing fast. DM me if you’re interested. Remote is totally cool.
Total newbie. Today the same work that took me 5 hours to complete took 1.5hr for a coworker. I’m keep seeing this pattern on different kinds of work, from research to formatting. And I‘m definitely not a perfectionist.. I don’t know what the issue is and how to be faster. Since we’re remote, its hard to gauge how others are working. Did anyone go through this?
Tips and tricks for remote onboarding? Anything that worked really well or you wish you'd done differently?
Have any of your firms discussed a flexible WFH policy post-pandemic? I’m happier & my hours are through the roof. I want to approach management with policy ideas for people like me who are thriving.

Hi everyone! I am new to Fishbowl - didn't even know this is a thing! I am looking for a Recruiter - fast paced, energetic, personable, strategic, forward thinking, thorough and good at building relationships. Can be remote some of the time, but really needs to be local - Knox (outside of), TN. I would really like to have someone who has some accounting recruiting experience.
Does anyone know of any website that lets you filter in-house positions by those who allow remote work? I’m assuming this does not exist but wanted to see if any of y’all have any thoughts.
My wife is pregnant. Do the general courtesies of telling your manager/work beginning of 3rd trimester still apply during covid/work from home? Her industry has been hit hard and her job has been doing furloughs and layoffs. We can get pretty far without telling due to WFH but don’t want to put her boss in a bad position either.
I’m a pretty anxious person and I’ve realized that a remote work environment only makes me more so - not being able to read people’s tone well, email/ping responses being more delayed than they would be in a conversation, the awkwardness of virtual meetings, etc. I’m in therapy and will discuss this there but would love to hear some tips about how people manage work anxiety specifically in a remote consulting environment.
Have an offer on the table at a startup that’s $35K more than current big 4 salary for a Senior Manager role. Benefits package is very comparable (401k match, healthcare costs, fringe stipends for WFH). Startup has been around for 5+ years and has secured a solid, 9 figures of investor dollars. Is it worth the move and having to leave my extremely secure “network” and role at a Big 4?
Me: I've been working 14 hr days non-stop. Employer: We've all been working hard. It's a tough time for the industry. Me: It's not sustainable and I'm burning out. I need help. Employer: Totally get it. We are understaffed so we need you to be flexible about taking on more responsibilities. Me: If I'm taking on more responsibilities, would my compensation be able to reflect that increase? Employer: It's tight this year. Economy/pandemic etc. Me: I'm leaving. Employer: *surprised pikachu face*
I work full time in a (foreign) country where employees are protected pretty well. Our agency lost clients and they need to lay people off. I’m on that list too. They are convincing us to accept a voluntary resignation with 5 months of salary. I can refuse (law will protect me) and stay on but I have barely any billable work to do and of course this will create some toxic relationships with management. (CONT)
Hired as an undergrad. Moving up quickly (should be manager this year). What benefits would I get out of doing an MBA?
Do any other firms have a policy that requires you to return to work for a certain period after paid parental leave, and if you choose to leave you are required to pay it back? If so, is there anyone who decided to leave before the end of that period? What happens if you can’t afford to pay it back?
What approach do you prefer to take when a client thinks the billable hours on an invoice are too high, but you think they are reasonable based on the work performed/deliverables?
Any advice for a newly pregnant consultant (6weeks in)? Do people usually go for appointments and scans without telling anyone at work till the required time to give notice?

How to diplomatically quit while in the middle of a project? Junior-ish and not going to a competitor (I understand we’re all replaceable...)
I wish Ad salaries were like NBA salaries. Each year you get a ridiculous raise no matter how shitty you perform. If you are good you get bird rights and no layoff clauses. And retire at 35.
As a new joiner.. is micromanaging the culture at all Big four firms ? Or does it depend on what service line your in?
