What percentage of your gigs are totally remote these days? Planning to take the leap but there are definitely more opps for better work outside of my local market.
I have so much mom guilt sending my baby to daycare. She’s 6 months old. The transition has been harder on me than her (she seems fine and happy, just isn’t sleeping well there yet) but I wonder if I should try and find a different solution. Part time nanny, part time daycare? We can’t afford a nanny full time. If I’m WFH and we have a nanny part time is it realistic that I’d see her during the day or am I kidding myself?
If a firm sent you free tech for WFH (monitors, docking station, keyboard, and mouse), are you obligated to return it once you leave? Obviously will return the laptop, but was wondering if it’s normal/expected to keep everything else. Insights appreciated! (Relatedly: laterals, do your new firms send you stuff or give you a stipend for your home office? Assuming at least partial remote for now)
I dont see how I could ever not work from home again. if the day comes, going to be so painful

EY-Parthenon (GDS) TSE-IT Team. What does it do? What would be work like? Does it have wfh policy just like EY GDS? Need help please
Encouraging WFH is not the same as making it mandatory. People who “take the option” of WFH will be frowned upon. Meanwhile “encouraging WFH” alleviates the liability of the agency. Don’t fall for it.
Need to find my job for a friend: she’s got 10+ YOE in pharma validation and quality. Looking for Philly area job (or remote) that’s more chill/not high stress. Any ideas of roles to look for?

Two colleagues have burnout and the partner has nothing else to say than „they knew the risks when they signed for the job“!!! Man im glad we are currently working remote or I would have punched that MF in the face. Does Consulting or partner level kill any sense of humanity in us? Im boiling right now🤬🤬🤬🤬 We can do better than this😓

I’m a CPA/FA and want to sit for the CFP exam. When I took the CPA I used CPAExcel and I loved it bc it broke down the material into “bite sized” lessons. Anything like that for CFP? Continued..
I applied to Apple 6 weeks ago and haven’t heard back but just got a “rate your experience applying” auto-generated email. Safe to assume it’s a no? 🤷🏼♀️

Do you think consulting firms could change something to become more family-friendly, or do you believe that with travel and client demands it's just the nature of the business to be tough?
Hi! I have a few questions on the backdoor Roth in which I’ve done a bit of research online. When it comes tax time, will my 401k vendor (Merrill) give me the correct documents? I’ve just used turbo tax in the past but am worried of any documents I may be missing to adjust any tax. Also- when does the pro-rata rule come into play? I’m just nervous in the entire process as this is my first year doing this. TIA!!
Anyone ever had trouble with a doctor not wanting to certify a family member’s condition, in order to take a leave of absence? My brother attempted suicide via drug OD (he was addicted) and he’s been hospitalized for over a week with seizures, psychosis, peeing blood, etc. We have visited him every day, driving 100+ miles round trip. The doctor is giving my father and me grief, saying (quote) “you aren’t providing care, the hospital is” and “there’s no reason you can’t go back to work.”
Thoughts on exiting to a FAANG L6 Strategy role or waiting until July for my impending promotion to manager? Do we think I can push the start date out to August?
Newly promoted experienced hire SC making $113k, 10 YOE (switched industries). Got an offer from TCS in an Advisory practice (not the tech sweatshop stuff that I keep seeing people mention). Base salary is $190k and in TCS equivalent of a M role. Downside to taking the salary hike and boomeranging back to D in ~2 years? FYI - I have 2 kids, so that kind of pay raise is kind of a big deal.
Asking this question here for a reason. In our culture and set up, a majority of the time is spent in cooking. We usually don’t eat microwave meals. I want to understand how Indian families cope up with all the traveling associates with consulting. Does the mother or father usually stay at home or be in a “light” job?
Dear FCB CHICAGO, you tout diversity but you let go of one of the only two black creative directors in your building today. This CD was good with the client, work and team. (Cont’d)

I feel like I cannot ever clear a coding interview round when the questions are around graphs and other dsa. I mean its easy for me to work with apis and architecting a solution. Apart from leetcode is there anything that can help me get a better at these interviews?
So I had my final interview yesterday in the industry (it was more so a 20 min convo with their CIO). Is it too early to follow up? I would never be pushy but I have another offer that I’m sitting on (as I would prefer the job that I interviewed for yesterday) so I need an answer asap
