I really wish it were possible as a Senior to take a "quiet" or remote day every week and focus on work uninterrupted. I get that it would be a challenge for staff/mgrs but think it would be worth it.
Groundhog Day - WFH edition
Finishing up my PhD in computational epidemiology. Prior MPH graduate with pharma and provider experience (mostly analytics side) . Companies to target in Chicago or remote roles?
Feeling burnt out, like I’m not doing great work, in need of a major life change, and that I’m just in survival mode until the Holiday break. Meanwhile I feel guilt of having a stable remote job unlike so many others around the country. Someone tell me that I’m not alone
Anyone else really pack on the pounds during work from home? I really blew up - probably gained 40-45 pounds. I feel so bloated and sluggish all the time and none of my clothes fit anymore. I hope I’m not alone.
Need a wfh setup / monitor. Recommendations?
What's a good billable hour total for 2020? Given covid conditions (we faced slump in work about 2 months) and work from home productivity.
For those of you not renewing your leases/ moving out of cities, what are you doing with your furniture, etc. for the time being? How are you facilitating your move? Lease is up at the end of the month and not sure if I should renew. Would hate to spend that much $$ if I’m not living there (I’m currently WFH with my parents in a different state)
Does anyone know of where to find remote part time work opportunities for older Indian women? My mom was a part-time after school teacher but has not been doing that due to covid (dad is high risk). I’m having her do some online typing lessons to get her to be a faster typer, maybe find her a data entry gig. She does not want to do nanny’ing / babysitting. She’s a great teacher though and she’s trilingual (Telugu, hindi) - anyone know of where to find opportunities?
Till when WFH for EY GDS Bangalore?
WFH from wherever until January 2021 was announced for us yesterday! 😀🙃🙂🙃🙂 Introvert heaven. 💫
Is doing freelance work on the side (when I’m off the clock, of course) considered taboo? Considering signing up for Fiverr to make some fun money but I don’t want any bad blood with my current job because I really like it and am not planning on leaving any time soon. (Sorry if this is a dumb question, this is my first copywriting job out of college and I’ve been 100% remote, so it’s hard to get a feel for things like this!)
Looking for a freelance copywriter to help out on launch campaign for a tech startup brand. Ideally DC-based, but open to remote. DM me!
This fight has gotten real! I’ve been offered a job, advertised as remote, but they want to have a blended program with teachers on campus. Small school, 10-15 to a class... maybe, masks ( I’ll have to ask if they’re mandatory), distancing and a continuous cleaning staff. Sounds great but I’m 62 with 5 underlying conditions! Have to negotiate a contract Monday... I’m hoping I’ll be able to work on-line as NV is one of the growing hotspots in this Pandemic!
Do you check emails on the weekend because of covid wfh situation/generally? Or check email but wait to reply on Monday unless an urgent response is required?
To those hired during the COVID-WFH era, how have you adjusted to the work, team culture and company culture? Some background on me, I got my first job outside of college during this wfh era. It was nice in the beginning, but I feel like it’s slowly chipping on my productivity. Thoughts?
Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
I recently transitioned to wfh full-time, in house. Amazing gig - I’m not complaining - but I literally never have to wear suits or anything fancy. Coworkers wear t-shirts, rarely blouses. My background is litigation, so I’m used to wearing sweaters, cardigans, suits, dresses. I don’t want to be the only one wearing business casual outfits but I can’t bring myself to wear a tank top/t-shirt and sweats/leggings every day. Advice for what to wear to wfh now that I’m just dressing for me? (Cont.)
Actually am getting pretty comfortable with this WFH arrangement. dont wanna jinx it 😬😬😬

I have a H1B visa that has been renewed once already. However in the designated period of 6 years I have been in the US for only around 2. Does that mean I can renew my H1B visa or reapply fresh?...
SO and I have been shopping for a vacation home in the hamptons but I’m not too thrilled...feels kinda stuffy. Anyone who owns property out east feel the same way? I’d prefer places like Martha’s MA
I need to learn a new way to speak about process improvement and efficiencies. I’ve learned I have a knack for this but it seems like such common sense to me that I struggle articulating this to people who just don’t get it. I have no certifications and have no interest in getting one… Also, can you actually teach process improvement to people who don’t get it or is this just a DNA thing. Help? :)
Any insights on Protiviti’s data and analytics space? and also on so called ‘WLB’? 9years in analytics in Big 4 and looking to switch if that helps.

Really sad knowing that it will be hard to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas this year due to COVID19...
Do companies run analytics based on MS teams conversations to predict which folks are a flight risk? Every time I mention leaving or complain about work to a friend on the app, shortly after I get some form of incentive to stay or an apology from someone higher up.
What’s the best way to make use of company tuition reimbursement policy? I want to do a certification (already have pmp) like Apics CLTD or Scor-P. Which one is better or any other one I should consider?
I have an upcoming 30 minute general interview with McK soon for a specialist consultant position. Any advice or tips regarding this interview? It appears to be the precursor to the case interviews. Also what does the career ladder and comp look like for the specialist consultant positions? McKinsey & Company
Post Mba hire. Say I exit in 1-2 yrs, what level do you think I’d get in industry? Director? Manager? Have 5 yrs industry exp as a marketing manager. Just shy of jr director before I left for school.
How does it make sense that the children are going to school while most adults here have not started going back to work yet? If it’s COVID related still, it’s not consistent.
Do the breadth of exit opportunities in industry start to diminish after reaching manager at big four? I have this preconception that leaving as a manager will be harder than as a senior but no idea if true or not.
Hey guys, do you know what’s the use case for the phone in the bathroom? I’m comfortably seated in my newly refurbished SPG preferred room and I wonder why they kept the phone in here 🚽🤔
Do most MBA program fees cover mental health services through the university such as counseling?
Accenture Strategy layoffs? .....👀
Moving from big4 to core strategy firm (read MBB). Have 2 months before I join the new firm. Wondering what I can do to prepare myself, are there any courses, books that would help me gain some skills. I have mostly done PMO, tech implementations kind of work so far. Don't want to leave any stone unturned and want to make it work.
