Hope this is ok to post here - sharing since we have a female CEO and lots of women in leadership, I've been there a while and have always felt super supported.
Does anyone feel like they’ve had more empathetic leadership from female vs. male bosses during the pandemic while WFH with kids? I work for an all-male team and am feeling super discouraged. Wondering if I should start looking into opportunities with specifically woman-owned agencies.
Those who joined firms during remote work or who are fully remote, how has it been in terms of getting to know your team etc? I am considering a full time remote position and don’t want to be seen as an email address to throw work at when needed.
How do we convince company leaders that remote work is productive? A lot of them might be on the fence because *they’re* not personally productive. How do we encourage more WFH days when this is over?
I’m a 3rd year in biglaw, worked out of the NYC office before wfh. Went on vaca to Miami recently and absolutely loved it... thinking of moving there. My firm has an office in Miami too. Few Qs: 1) are big firms typically ok with office transfers? (I heard I have a good rep with the seniors and partners). 2) is it easy to just change your address in workday to FL so that income taxes are not deducted? Obviously I’ll have to work with an accountant for end of year taxes and such. Cont’d below...
What is the amount of a home Internet allowance at Google (assuming full remote)? Thanks!
Hello fishes, I am a new lateral joiner at TCS, currently WFH with base branch as Pune. I need suggestions on how can I get my ID card without travelling to Pune.
I'm not too sure but I heard TCS has stopped ID card delivery to home address, is this true? Or can I collect the ID card from my nearest TCS office?
My agency is looking to grow their digital offerings and expertise and is looking for a Creative Director to join the ranks. NJ based but open to remote and virtual.
If wlb is a priority where would you recommend? I am non tech and moved from abroad so scared to work in a high pressure place. Based in Delhi but open to wfh elsewhere too.
What will salaries look like if agencies and companies do start offering flex and WFH? I know, myself, I’d move from NY to PA or Maryland. If not the company, I could see the government finding a way to tax it.
Could totally see companies like Amtrak profiting by adding a bullet train between NY and DMV

Hi All, I am currently a Data Analyst with 1 year of experience and pursuing a masters in Computer Science (expected to graduate 5/2023). I am looking to transition into an entry Data Scientist role (preferably remote or Philadelphia, PA). Can someone refer me or let me know who is hiring?
I can provide my resume if needed.
How do you handle an employee that is taking advantage of this WFH environment? I understand we need to be sensitive as people have things they are going through, but where do we draw the line? For context, this employee is a single male and never logs online before 10:30am. I have bit my tongue for weeks and weeks but feel a conversation is due. Should I wait until after the holidays at this point? Ah- advice welcomed!
Hi! Got an offer for a remote position but they had me tagged to the NYC office but I live in NJ as soon the recruiter found out they said they have to crunch the numbers again 😒 Is Amazon comp based on location even if the role is remote?

Is anyone else dealing with an unemployed partner? My partner has been unemployed for a year now (laid off due to COVID) and cannot find a job. He spends all day applying and interviewing for jobs but none of them go anywhere. It’s taking a huge toll on our relationship and I don’t know what to do at this point. We can’t plan anything (trips, the future, where we want to live) because of it. Can anyone relate 😞

Hi gals, you all helped me immensely here previously so back with another Q. I’m struggling to get the two people I manage to be motivated. I’ve tried radical empathy. I’ve tried being serious and stern. I’ve tried multiple daily check ins. I’ve tried no and minimal check ins. I’ve tried over-explaining and I’ve tried pure silence waiting for questions. I just cannot get them to be self starters. They miss deadlines and the work is not great. It’s starting to weigh on me because this has (cont)
