Does anyone know if KKR is back in the office? I have an HR screen coming up but honestly wouldn’t move forward with the job if it’s not remote friendly
I’ve been in the industry for about 20 years, hundreds of pitches, dozens of speaking events at big shows. I used to be a natural when presenting. Fluid, clever and insightful while keeping it friendly and conversational. Since covid and WFH my presentation focus is totally off. Low energy, nervous, dry mouth, reading off slides, hard to keep my mind in the bigger picture or focus on the story. Womp womp. Really getting me down and not sure how to get the magic back. Depressing.
Is audit more fun when we get back to the client site as a team? My whole time at EY has been in audit 100% remote and I am so isolated and board and not being trained well.
I got a phone call from a firm I turned down 2 years ago, just wondering if I would be interested again. Only turned them down due to distance from home, but they are fully remote now, would need to come in every once in a while for client things. Crazy to even consider it? Move from BDO to a regional firm. Owner and staff was great, he said, name your price. Need some insight, thanks!
What is it about law that glorifies morning people so much? I am NOT one and wfh has been so great for me in terms of being able to set my own schedule, but now that we’re starting to go back to the office I’ve noticed some pointed comments about people not being in by 8am. I bill as much (generally more) than other associates, so why does it matter if I start at 9 and work late?? I’m finding it hard to go back to the arbitrary-feeling 8am office start when I know I’m not going to be productive.
What are peoples experiences and thoughts on requesting to work remote every Fri? It was healthy for me having this in consulting... Seeing if I can ‘secure’ this before accepting a StratOps offer...

Is any of the Big 4 forcing you back to the office? Thinking about joining but don’t really want to give up WFH.
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.
I’m not the heaviest I’ve ever been - I’ve lost some weight due to stress - but I’m easily in the worst shape of my life. I go for walks but it’s just not enough to combat the sedentary wfh lifestyle. Any advice on how to make more of an effort to at least try to do better? I have no equipment other than a yoga mat and can’t afford a peloton or anything. But I went to the office to pick some stuff up and took the stairs 3 floors up, and felt like I was going to die 😭 any advice appreciated!
My work office is in philly but i wfh in delaware. Why im i paying for both state taxes as well as philly tax. Is that right or do i need to make some adjustments. Im at PwC currently.
Just wondering if this local or a problem all litigators are facing. COVID impacted trial scheduling . Courts then set trials randomly. Meanwhile more complaints were filed and more trial dates were set. Now, my court is simply refusing to grant stips to continue trial and ex partes. Our trial calendar is apocalyptic at this point. I understand the courts are backlogged and need to keep cases moving. But, matters are being neglected and I feel like the court is setting us up for malpractice.
I am currently on maternity leave. I missed utilization targets because of travel restrictions and was not rated highly for my performance last year. I am concerned I could be laid off when I return or before - my federal and state protection for pregnancy has ended. This is making me very anxious and not letting me enjoy my bonding time with my little one. Any advice on how I can change my mindset or be more calm is much appreciated. Thanks!!
I’m a first-year associate in big law, and I often have friends and family members reach out to me for assistance or referrals on tasks that I personally have no expertise (e.g. drafting wills, business/entity formation). Because of my job, I’m surrounded by attorneys who also can’t help most of the time. How do you recommend finding attorneys to refer your friends/family to while making sure that your friends/family are getting quality service?
